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.

HOWLING AT THE MOON

Two lonely hearts stand tall against the moon so bright above,Proclaiming sounds unheard by men, of their undying love,They lift their heads up to the sky, yet keep their gazes locked,They plan a secret rendezvous, as hands move round the … Continue reading

SUNDAY MORNING PRAYER

Dear, Holy, Father, It seems strange to be coming to worship you virtually. Unfortunately this is the way of the world right now. When I think about our relationship, it really has nothing to do with the physical edifice of … Continue reading

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY ONLY SIBLING

When we were young and innocent, so very long ago, I didn’t think too much of you at all, You’d tag along behind me like the shadow you would throw, Our youth is gone, but still we can recall. The nights we … Continue reading

6-8 INCHES OF NEW FALLEN SNOW – BLEH!

I guess we should have expected it. Last week’s little dusting of snowflakes was just a foreshadowing of what was to come. Yesterday, the white stuff, which we refer to in Minnesota as that horrible four letter word, starting falling … Continue reading

TREASURE OR TREASURED

In my lifetime I have experienced living with little, living modestly, living with means and living with little once again. When you have money, it doesn’t mean you are happier or are twice blessed. It simply means you have more … Continue reading
