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 YEARS IN BETWEEN – INTRODUCTION

MORE THAN A BRIGHT IDEA . . .
The entire story of Christmas is filled with mysterious events, which can only be believed by faith in the One who made them happen. The story of God’s taking on human flesh, being born of a virgin mother, following the … Continue reading
GOOD MORNING, BABY JESUS
I think of Your tiny body asleep on a mound of hay – Your tiny, dimpled hands reaching up to your mother’s breast – Your soft, fuzzy head nestling closer to her. How did you sleep on that first night … Continue reading
SHE TREASURED AND PONDERED THESE THINGS
They arrived in Bethlehem late that evening. Stars filled the sky like diamonds exploding across the expanse. Before entering the city, Mary noticed a flock of sheep in the fields. Many were sleeping, but the shepherds took turns watching them … Continue reading
A PROMISE-FILLED JOURNEY
The months leading up to this journey were filled with shame, humility, fear, doubt and at times confusion. Mary had been given news of her purpose in God’s plan of salvation. She accepted the task with wonder. Even though she … Continue reading
BUT MARY PONDERED
“But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart.” When I was a young child, I thought the word “ponder” meant to pound. In a child’s mind it made perfect sense for Mary to treasure the things … Continue reading
Shepherds fending off their sleep, while they tended all their sheep. Suddenly were startled by the hosts of angels in the sky. “Do not fear,” was said to them – “We bring good news and peace to men.” They followed God’s bright star above … Continue reading
BORN IN THE CITY OF DAVID . . .
Bethlehem wasn’t a big town, but it was bursting at the seams as people entered from all over the country to be counted for the census. Imagine a little farm community where the people gathered to do their trading. I suppose some folks camped … Continue reading

AWAY IN A MANGER
Anyone who has given birth knows that a baby usually arrives when it’s ready, not when we are. There wasn’t any place to go. No rooms were left in the inn. I can picture the innkeeper, up to his ears … Continue reading

NOT AN ORDINARY BABY
Hands and feet swollen, tired and sore from the treacherous journey. Belly full and heavy with child. A journey that wasn’t required of her, yet it was. Had she not travelled the rugged road to Bethlehem with Joseph, the prophesy would … Continue reading
