pillars-of-creation (2)

I wrote a poem when I first saw this picture for the Hubble Telescope on Nasa’s website. They have some amazing pictures of deep space. These are the Pillars of Creation, in the Eagle nebula. They are the birthplace of stars from gas, dust and heat, trillions of miles tall and more than trillions of miles from earth. The following poem is unique. I had almost finished it but was wanting to work on it more. I tried to close down the page, but it just blipped up on me. It wouldn’t let me close it down and another stanza and a half appeared on the page. God finished it for me. The last one and a half stanzas are His.

On Viewing the Pillars of Creation

Your fingers reach into a Universe
Created just for You
To birth stars, galaxies
as a child moves grains
Of sand on
the water-washed surface of a beach.

These pillars of gas and
We view, catching sly glances,
From an unfathomable distance,
Unreachable, this birthplace of glorious stars
Put into place.
Brilliant, gleaming, glistening reflections of
Your Face.

Effortlessly, unendingly you create
And love
Moons, stars, galaxies
This small grain of an earth

And the lessor inhabitants
Upon it.
Pieces of earth, this rock
we spin on,
we breathe only because
You wish it.

Gently caressing at times,
Cloud dust springs into existence.
At others, with a finger snap,
super nova explode
from the ether of a dark nothingness.

Releasing raw elements,
Light, rock, chemicals,
Your gentle breath moves past your lips,
And our world spins,
Into a celestial dance,
Yielding night and day in
Its wake.

You have said this
Level of life of
Hearts beating, thumping,
Blood coursing through veins,
Will cease
Only to be made More perfect

If we join with you now,
Merging our two into one,
Willing to suffer, sacrifice,
Love for the present
No matter the price.

A glory will be revealed
In the second realm of creation,
A Perfecting, complete Rebirth,
Will occur for each living, feeling
Being we see now.

Into endless infinity,
Every star will sing a new song.
Unending Praise will resound
To the Praise of Your Glorious
Face and

A Universe reborn!!
What an Overwhelming joy
Will fly, sing past our heads
As we enter into the
Of that new World.



One of the Worst. . .

I feel one of the worst things we have done in the US and was decided on by our Supreme Court was to take God out of our schools. I am an older person so I grew up in the 1950’s and the 1960’s. When I was young, our school day started off every morning with the Pledge of Allegiance and most days, but not always, a reading from the Bible or a short prayer. Also every school assembly or pep rally and even sporting events such as football games were always started with a prayer to Almighty God. So even if your parents did not take you to a church, you heard the names of God and Jesus spoken aloud in school.

It saddens me, and I feel sorry for so many of the children of the younger generations behind me that are not being taken or were not taken to church that will never even hear the names God or Jesus Christ except maybe on a sign out in front of some church they just happen to pass by. I feel very blessed to have grown up in a Christian church. It has made all the difference in the world to my life and has saved me in more ways than one. Praise God!

Merry Christmas!!


Well, it’s that time of year again. The shopping frenzy has already started.  It’s fun to watch, and I admit I take part in it myself. The holiday decorations around town and in the stores are beautiful to look at and make the atmosphere so much more festive. I hope and pray you have a good Christmas this year if you celebrate this holiday, and that God will bless you and your family or friends.

The celebrating is great, but I pray you will take time to think about the reason for all the festivities, the birth of the living God Jesus into this world in order to die for us and save us. He’s so beautiful!! I never had anybody else ever die for me. I pray God will bless you.

A Dream


I had the most beautiful dream last night. I was standing in the front yard of the house I grew up in and looked up toward the sky. It was night, and the sky was dark, but I could see stars, stars, stars everywhere. Millions, billions, trillions of them filled the night sky, and flying among them were angels everywhere. They were swooshing and flying and zipping everywhere. They were laughing, smiling and full of so much joy. It was one of the most beautiful dreams I’ve ever had. It left me smiling. The joy was everywhere!

If a dream can be this beautiful what will the real thing be like? Can’t imagine but it will be worth any struggle or pain you’re having in order to follow Christ!!



Got up this morning feeling so funky. Is that a word? I don’t know but I’ll use it anyway!

I had so many negatives in my life. Life for me started out in hell. I have had times in my life when it felt like the only love I had in my life was that of a dead carpenter hanging on a cross a little over 2000 years ago. So I got up having to struggle with all the same old negatives I’m so tired of. Then I got on twitter and read some of the scriptures and things that some of the Christians write on there, and it lifted me up.

Christ really does love you, and the Holy Spirit does want to lift you above all of life’s pains. We’re supposed to become a new creation, but we have to let him have 100% of ourselves. I pray you can come to know the beautiful Savior who loves you more than anyone else ever will!!! Praise God.

One Cell!!

It always amazes me how people can think this world created itself or happened just by chance. I worked in the sciences. I was a type of laboratory technologist, basically sat and studied cell samples all day looking for abnormal cells. If everyone could see how complex and highly organized just one cell in your body is, and you are made up of trillions of them!! You are a walking miracle.36020001-cells-under-microscope

A universe in chaos can create order. Chaos only creates chaos, and disorder only creates disorder.

Only an intelligence could have created this beautiful, highly complex and organized planet we live on. It truly had to be a In the beginning God created. Nothing else makes logical sense to me! I pray you can come to know the love that is God himself.

Royal Family!




Before I got up this morning from bed, I couldn’t get the thought out of my head that God is my father. If you are a believer in Jesus of Nazareth, Christ, you are accepted as a child of the only real living king there is, God of the Old and New Testaments, Creator of everything. As it says we are a royal priesthood, but I am now a princess and every son is a prince. Praise God!!  I still cannot get over the fact that someone as powerful as He is, that can create something trillions of miles tall such as the Pillars of Creation wants and loves me. It just is sometimes overwhelming. I pray you will have a holy and blessed day.

Hubble Goes High Def to Revisit the Iconic 'Pillars of Creation'
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has revisited the famous Pillars of Creation, revealing a sharper and wider view of the structures in this visible-light image. Astronomers combined several Hubble exposures to assemble the wider view. The towering pillars are about 5 light-years tall. The dark, finger-like feature at bottom right may be a smaller version of the giant pillars. The new image was taken with Hubble’s versatile and sharp-eyed Wide Field Camera 3. The pillars are bathed in the blistering ultraviolet light from a grouping of young, massive stars located off the top of the image. Streamers of gas can be seen bleeding off the pillars as the intense radiation heats and evaporates it into space. Denser regions of the pillars are shadowing material beneath them from the powerful radiation. Stars are being born deep inside the pillars, which are made of cold hydrogen gas laced with dust. The pillars are part of a small region of the Eagle Nebula, a vast star-forming region 6,500 light-years from Earth. The colors in the image highlight emission from several chemical elements. Oxygen emission is blue, sulfur is orange, and hydrogen and nitrogen are green. Object Names: M16, Eagle Nebula, NGC 6611 Image Type: Astronomical Credit: NASA, ESA, and the Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA)

Colorful Trees of Fall


I just could not resist it so I took out my cheap little camera and went to get photos of some of the trees around us. This is the prettiest they have been and the first sunny day I could get got shots. Had to hurry and get the pictures before the rains set in and knocked all the leaves off of them!! Hope you enjoy them and that you get to enjoy the fall weather. May God bless your day.

Patient in Affliction!

Life can be an extremely difficult struggle at time. I came into the world under unpleasant circumstances. Orphaned from birth, life was lonely and frightening, but I did get to learn about God and Christ. That was the salvation for me. I try to stay connected to our wonderful and loving Creator. I truly believe it will be worth staying connected to Him. May God bless your life and your days with the glory of Himself and His Love!!!
