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.

A GRATEFUL HEART
When we give something of ourselves to benefit others, God tells us to do it with a grateful heart. If there is any malice in the doing or giving, we aren’t doing it His way. His love is perfect and … Continue reading

DREARY DAYS OF NOVEMBER
The grey skies of November are upon us up here in Lake Woebegone. All the green grass has pretty much faded into oblivion – covered with a rich blanket of mulch, fallen softly from dying trees. It seems to be … Continue reading

WHY GO TO CHURCH?
The number of excuses for not attending church is unending: Everyone acts one way in the church and another every other day of the week. I’ve got a meal to prepare. I don’t have time. Church makes me feel uncomfortable … Continue reading
WHY GO TO CHURCH?
We sometimes form our ideas about attending church out of habit, need or willingness. When we gather or assemble we are doing more than that. We have been invited to confess our sins, to receive absolution and forgiveness, to give … Continue reading
