About atimetoshare.me

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.

Where is the quiet place that you are longing for? Is it in those empty times when waiting to do more? Can you find contentment in the solitude of living? Or does is come in simpler ways, like doing and … Continue reading

TOO MUCH EXCESS BAGGAGE

There are days in my life when worry overtakes me. I often wonder why it’s so much a part of who I am. You could say, I’m the typical Jewish mother – even though I’m not Jewish. Jesus was, however … Continue reading

WHEN TWO SIDES UNITE

The road is full of stumbling blocks, we see them every day,Our path is full of hiccups which toughen up the way,Our journey to eternity is filled with indecision,We struggle through all daily tasks, requiring supervision,The signs that lead to … Continue reading

SHAKE IT OFF AND STEP UP

I’ve always loved stories with a moral – parables like Jesus told and those of philosophical folks who have experienced life to the max. The story of the farmer’s donkey may be familiar to most of you, but I didn’t … Continue reading

OUT OF THE DEPTHS OF HELL

This painting is a recreation of a spot in Yellowstone National Park. Imagine what the first explorers and mountain men thought when they saw steam spewing out of the earth and putrid smells exuding from its depths. It must have … Continue reading

AN AGING EDIFICE

Right outside the city, stands a house that’s very old,Built to fight off danger and the bitter, wintry, cold,Each brick was placed precisely upon the cornerstone,The mortar held them tightly, through winds so swiftly blown. This house was built so … Continue reading
