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 MERRY MONTH OF MAY
“As full of spirit as the month of May, and as gorgeous as the sun in Midsummer.” ― William Shakespeare It’s May. It’s May – the merry month of May. Originating in Ireland this holiday was designed to welcome spring with … Continue reading
HEY, WHAT’S THAT IN THE SKY?
With the sighting of several “weather” balloons in the sky recently, I couldn’t help but wonder why we go into panic mode when anything unusual happens. Instead of making light of it, we tend to turn our attention to the … Continue reading
COME, LET US ADORE HIM
Streets dusted with powdered sugar snow are empty now after the hustle and bustle within this tiny town. Everyone empties the church after singing praises to the newborn King. The lights dim as the final wishes of “Merry Christmas,” are … Continue reading
WHENEVER YOU FEEL ALONE . . .
I guess it’s OK to have a bad day, but I hate it when I’m the one having it. I know that things will be better tomorrow, but while I’m experiencing self-doubt, worry, fear, sadness or anxiety, I feel like … Continue reading
SHINING JEWELS OF DE NIAL
Last night we hit the stage at Northern Starz Performing Arts Center in Ramsey, MN. As you may know, I’ve been involved in this little theatre troupe for about three years now. It stemmed out of a class I was … Continue reading
MAKE ROOM FOR LAUGHTER
It’s not easy to find humor in the events of today, but I think it’s mandatory. Laughter has always been good medicine. Even the Bible talks about how important it is for us. Proverbs 17:22 says, “A joyful heart is … Continue reading
A DAY OF UNREST
It was the Sabbath day – a day dedicated to rest and meditation. Jesus’ body had been interred in the tomb of a rich man. Time would not allow for preparing the body for burial, because the Sabbath required no … Continue reading
FOR UNTO US . . .
Isaiah 8:6-7 “For to us a child is born,to us a son is given;and the government shall be upon his shoulder,and his name shall be calledWonderful Counselor, Mighty God,Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.Of the increase of his government and of … Continue reading
RING THOSE BELLS
When my husband was a young lad, he was responsible for ringing the church bells for Sunday service along with other special events as weddings and funerals. His small frame grew big muscles as he tugged on the rope designed … Continue reading
THE WHOLE STORY IS INCONCEIVABLE
I might be the only one who has made this comparison, but the entire Biblical Christmas story reminds me of the word Vizzini kept repeating over and over in “The Princess Bride.” It is more than inconceivable, it’s unbelievable, miraculous … Continue reading
I’M SO EXCITED!
June has always been a special month for me. I was born in June, so I’ll be turning 79 this year. My second grandson was also born in June and will graduate from college this year. In a little more … Continue reading
WHAT’S GOING ON IN THEIR LIFE?
Did you ever stop to wonder what might be going on in someone else’s head? They could be a complete stranger, but their actions are speaking volumes. For example, the lady at the deli counter, who apparently doesn’t like her … Continue reading
SPIRITS OF CHRISTMAS – PART ONE
It seems that some of the world’s greatest literature includes a ghost or two. In Shakespeare’s work, the protagonist is often confronted with ghosts. Spirits are sometime seen as evil or forces from the devil. Some might be portenders of future events. … Continue reading
WE NEED A LITTLE CHRISTMAS
A couple of weeks ago, when it was still in the 50s, our granddaughter came over and retrieved our Christmas decorations from the attic in our garage. Both of us have resigned ourselves to not do any ladder climbing now … Continue reading
WHAT HAVE WE GOT TO BE THANKFUL FOR?
It certainly would seem that this Thanksgiving doesn’t give us a lot to be thankful for. We’re basically going into lockdown again. We’re not being permitted to gather with our families and loved ones. We’re seeing an economy slowly dying … Continue reading
THE EMPTY CHURCH
Three generations of our family eight years ago. Taken at the front of our church in Minneapolis. The thought of not celebrating Easter in church is almost impossible for me to imagine, but this year will be a first for … Continue reading
PLEASE, DON’T STEAL MY JOY!
Every mother who sees her first born child experiences a myriad of emotions. For most of us the word “joy” comes to mind. She counts fingers and toes, holds the baby close to her breast and experiences the ecstasy of … Continue reading
This is my family – not a recent photo – but it remains the same today as it was two years ago when this picture was taken. We were celebrating Christmas and all of us were together for the first … Continue reading
THIS OLD HOUSE
ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER© A solid base with bones still strong. A place where love and peace belong, A fortress from the outside noise. A buttress which retains our joys, The inner walls are cracked and dry. Like … Continue reading
LET THE MOUNTAINS SING OUT
ORIGINAL ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER© Every crack and crevice can hear the angels sing, The rocks cry out with joy to hear the wondrous news they bring, The Son of God is born a child, He’s come … Continue reading
