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.

DOES NECESSITY LEAD TO INVENTION?

I wonder how Thomas Edison would’ve felt, had he given up just at the brink of discovery.  I wonder if Alexander Graham Bell ever dreamed that his telephone would some day lead to instant communication to anywhere in the world.  … Continue reading

PUTTING WHITE CLOTHES AWAY

THE GREAT ESCAPE

Nestled in the bluffs along a river that borders two states, Buildings from another century dotting the landscape, A peaceful tranquility that escapes the noise of the big city, Seemingly untouched by the darkness of turmoil and strife, Unscathed by the … Continue reading

CLOSED CAPTIONING MISHAPS

THE MIGHTY MOOSE

His powerful muscles are apparent in a body strong enough to carry the weight of his gigantic antlers.  His antlers resemble open hands reaching up to heaven.  As with all of God’s creatures, those six foot wide horns are set upon his head for a purpose. … Continue reading
