I Saw This Scene


On my walk tonight I saw this scene

I heard it call my name

I looked above and shielded my eyes

And saw God’s hand as it came

To me. The glow of light from around his face

Looked gently down at thee

I turned around to see if anyone was about

No, it was only him and me.

The tears came softly down my face

As I got on bended knee

I had prayed so long for this moment to come

As his arms reached through the trees.

Oh Lord almighty I love you so

You have loved me all this time

And now you say it is time for me

To get up and rise, and leave all  this behind.

You lift me up into your hands

And carry me through the skies

I can feel your love surround me Lord

As you reach out and dry my eyes.

Heaven is just what you said it was

So peaceful, so light and oh so calm

To be with you now , my dream is fulfilled

We walk together side by side  walking through the palms.

A Peek Inside


I have been blogging now almost three months, and I often wonder what name hides behind the WordPress names that I respond to. I have wondered what you look like and do not always know what area you are from. I have decided to share with you a little about myself through pictures I have taken through the years. The top photo is of me, and the one beneath is my brother. This is my eldest child, a daughter, with her husband, and one of their daughters standing with them,at the bottom of the page. This little girl,third photo down, is another one of my granddaughters. The little boy on the bike is also a grandson to me. The sixth photo down is the mother of the little boy on the bike. She is the one in the bottom left hand corner. They are a part of my youngest son’s family.The photo under these words with a  young man holding the little girl and the boy sitting beside him is my youngest son and his two children, more of my grandchildren. The young man sitting alone, is my middle son. Now I have shown you my three children. Mom, me and son together, next to the bottom. Son-in-law and his son, my grandson together,third from the bottom. My daughter and her daughter, my oldest grandchild,eighth from top. My entire family minus the middle son, one granddaughter and one more grandson. I love them all, and wish they were all living near me. Things that I enjoy doing are taking photographs. Here is one I took of tree leaf reflections. Here are two I took of the skies after the storm. I also love antiques and blogging. Well here is my sweet family, and some photos of nature. I have lived in Indiana all of my life except a short time when I lived in Florida. There is nothing more important to me than living for God and my family.  Thank-you for stopping by and getting a better peek of who I am.
