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.

FIRE & BLOOD IN THE STREETS

DOES NEW LIFE COME FROM A COCOON?

A BRIDGE TO SOMEWHERE

A tattered bridge seemingly leads to nowhere, It swings precariously over a raging river of trouble, An ominous, green cast shrouds the waters, In the haze of life’s existence, We could despair, We could fall, We could hang on for dear life, Or … Continue reading

GALLERY – WATER

Sheets of frozen shards slice through the mountain, On its path, the ice turns into glistening, fresh, cool water, Crashing, Rolling over jagged rock, Bubbling and steaming, As it falls to still waters below, The finger of God, Pushing it ever forward, Cutting … Continue reading
