All three of my children had baby books, with information about their size and weight – the color of their eyes and hair, or lack of it – the first smile – the gifts received and so forth. Mary probably didn’t have a baby book to keep track of her firstborn Son. In fact, the Bible says she tucked all these things away in her heart for future reference. With each of my children, the information became less and less, because I was busy being a mother. My third child didn’t even believe she had a baby book until we recently discovered it.

Mary had just gone through the most amazing experience of her life. It would touch the lives of so many and really all the facts about this baby boy are recorded in the Bible, but what happened during those years between his birth, the visit of the Mag and their remarkable gifts – His working side – by side with His stepdad – His first visit to the temple and later when He was 12 years old and doing His true Father’s work. The years between twelve and thirty are a mystery to us.

Tomorrow I will be starting a series I wrote a while back called, “The Years in Between,” Each of the episodes of this series touches on things that were going on during the time of Jesus’ life – the political climate – the occupations of the people – geographical information – how people lived, what they ate and what they did for fun. It is based on information I’ve researched and is filled with dramatic license, but it might complete the missing pages of His story. That time was not extremely important, because we read that during that time Jesus grew in wisdom and stature – which is all we really need to know. However, He was both the divine Son of God as well as a human being. I hope you enjoy the series and that the “stories” show the humanity of our Savior.



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
