How difficult to think of Him

as merely man.

Did He have cabin fever

in mid-winter too?

Was He reflective,

after spending time with folks,

because of things He said…

or didn’t say?

Did someone need to talk with Him

as He hurried on His way?

Was He discouraged by the weather?

Was He tempted to make bread from stones?

The Bible says He was.

Does that mean

when I’m tempted

I am not alone?

Will God be in my heart and head

if I listen well to Him

and learn His teachings?

Starting now,

is there still time?

Was time His enemy?

Is it mine?

Did He finish all His daily chores

and wake at night

wishing He’d accomplished more?

If I could gain acclaim

with talents given me by God,

would I, as He,

refuse the moment’s gain

For certain pain?


 I would question

if He really understood

the little things

that happen in my day.

He said He would.

Loved to write since high school..as the years pass memories and relationships are primary. (There is also room for an opinion or two.) Feeling good at the age of eighty-five, I'm enjoying life and a hobby of photography. We've lived on this small farm for sixty-one years. In the course of time we welcomed three sons, two grandkids, and 3 greats. We owned and operated an Ace Hardware and a Hallmark Shop and managed to raise sheep for ten years. My husband and I shared sixty-two years of marriage before his passing in 2017. A son has also passed on to the next life, Memories really are "Made From This". Welcome to my world!
