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 Amazon.com.

WHAT PRICE FOR ART?
I didn’t post yesterday, because we ventured out to church in the morning and then spent the rest of the day on a date together. Usually I post some of Paul’s art on Sundays along with some poetry of mine. … Continue reading
WHAT IS MY VALUE?
According to US Government statistics, the average monetary value of a human life is ten million dollars. If you factor in inflation, you can kick that up another million or two. How do “they” come up with this number? It … Continue reading
MY IRISH EYES ARE FAILING
I will be undergoing cataract surgery in the next few weeks. My eyes probably are about all that I can claim as Irish. The image attached to this post is not me, but those eyes are so nice and clear … Continue reading
WHEN IRISH EYES ARE LAUGHING
This is a rerun from last year, but the jokes are timeless. Since I’m about a fifth Irish, I decided to post a few good Irish jokes for this special day. ‘O’Halloran,’ asked the pharmacist, ‘did that mudpack I gave … Continue reading
ANOTHER WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY!
The sun sprinkles a handful of fairy dust upon clinging icicles. Each one hangs on for dear life hoping that tomorrow the thermometer allows them to dwindle a bit, but in reality each day only adds to their girth. That … Continue reading
In 2020, we were in the beginning throes of a worldwide pandemic. Things have changed since then. We’re more attuned to the necessary alterations to our lifestyles. We still wear masks in certain situations. We’re leery of government yet have … Continue reading
WHO AM I?
I love musical theatre. One of my favorites is “Les Misérables,” by Victor Hugo. Hugo lived in a time of great turmoil. The French Revolution was in its early development. People were living in poverty while their rulers partied the … Continue reading
ARE YOU A SAINT OR SINNER? YES!
There seems to be an interest in getting a bird’s eye view of other people making foolish mistakes or trying to be something they can’t possibly be. We see it in the weekly reality shows on television – movies- in … Continue reading
IT’S DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME
I’m at the age where TIME is running out. I’ve gone through 160 TIME changes in my lifetime. I’ve gotten used to falling back and springing forward. I now have a lot of TIME on my hands, but no TIME … Continue reading
ART BY PAUL BOECHER – POETRY BY KATHY BOECHER Wallowing in the quietness of God’s beautiful creation, Breathing in the scent of flowers and freshly mowed grass, Observing wispy cloud formations, trying to make something of them, Lost in the … Continue reading
SURE SIGNS OF SPRING
Winter simply wants to hang on this year. We’re blessed to have help shoveling our way out. It’s not a pretty sight seeing to octogenarians outside in below zero weather, trying to push snow around. In my part of the … Continue reading
SPRING, I KNOW YOU’RE OUT THERE . . .
ART & POETRY FROM KATHY BOECHER The snow is slowly melting now, soon green will take its place, Long nights of winter darkness pass, soon sun will kiss our face, Warm caress of springtime sunshine, drops of rain shall fall, … Continue reading
FRIENDS BY FAITH, NOT SIGHT
I’d driven that same road several times during the week. Funny how you get in the habit of going somewhere and never really stopping to notice the things around you. There was one thing I did manage to see almost … Continue reading
OH TO BE A BEATNIK AGAIN . . .
I grew up in the 50’s and 60’s – when you were either a square, cool, a greaser or a beatnik. I’m sure every generation has their own labels, but to be a beatnik in the 50’s might’ve been akin … Continue reading
WHAT IS GOD’S WILL FOR MY LIFE?
Surrendering to God’s will is not easy. We can think of a thousand different reasons why we should follow our own heart, think it through and make our own decisions. Do we underestimate God so much, that we think we’re … Continue reading
LEARNING TO TRUST
Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.” Psalm 9:10 Many of you know my husband is an artist. He went to school at the Chicago Art Institute so that … Continue reading
MISSING MY DOG
David Kitz had a charming story about his dog, “Champ,” this morning. It brought to mind all the many dogs we’ve had as pets over the years. Four years ago we said goodbye to our twelve year old Llewellin Setter, … Continue reading
ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER Away from the maddening crowds, Deep in the heart of natural things, Lifted to heights unknown, Separated for a time from the chaos, The destruction, The anger, The hatred and blood. There … Continue reading
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD
My dad would’ve been 102 today, but he went to heaven at the very early age of 61. I think about him often now, especially as I near the late years of my own existence. Dad was one of four … Continue reading
