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.

THE FINAL PAGE

Rippled sand forming a gigantic canvas reaching across the horizon. Arid, barren, scorched and without life. A seemingly insignificant expanse, devoid of moisture. Enclosed by the sun, the wind and all the elements, Segments of a pattern that once was … Continue reading

FILL MY HEART WITH GRATITUDE

Each day our hearts should swell with joy, for treasures that we hold, And count the blessings God employs, much greater than pure gold, The gifts within His creation, the untouched land and trees, The waters with deep hydration, the tender, soothing breeze, … Continue reading

THE ARSENAL OF THE OPPRESSOR – EGO

A WORLD WITHOUT GOD

Before the earth was, God was there. He saw the darkness of the universe and all that was in it. With only His voice, He said, “Let there be light,” and there was. That utterance began the creation of the … Continue reading

IT IS OUR CHOICE

We cannot change our heritage, or the color of our skin, We can’t determine what we’ll be on the day that life begins, When we are born our souls live too, but we’ve not yet seen our God, Our genes … Continue reading
