ON HER WAY TO ETERNAL LIFE


Unattractive,
    Uneducated,
          Uninformed.
Not practiced at correctness,
  Mary lived her life     
One
Simple
Uncomplicated day
At a time.
Never indulging in self-satisfaction,
Nor pursued by dreams of personal success,
Her simple life was unadorned with expectations.
Knowing no pretense
Mary cast her lot
With God.
God first
Love
Worship
Prayer
Service
Family second
Love 
Prayer
Care 
Service
Country third
Love
Service
Prayer
Respect
No unexpected event
No shortfall
No misfortune
Could cause her simple faith
To waver.
“God knows all about it,” Mary would say.
Her countenance always displayed
Unflappable peace.
Mary’s life was uneventful,
Her faith unshakable.
Her example unforgettable.
Never doubting the unquenchable supply
Of God’s love and care,
Mary lived to the fullest;
The abundant life
Of a saint.
Her legacy to those who knew her
Was a trail of unerring discipleship
On her way to eternal life with God.

The future is right ahead of me and new projects seem to beckon... Friends and memories of times past remain with me today. I love to share my stories along with comments and opinions (of course) of today's challenges. Photography is my hobby and opportunities to capture the scenes before me are mine for the taking. Born and raised in Michigan, the peaceful woods and wildlife trails have always attracted me. Graduating from high school in the early fifties, college was of no interest to me. I have learned one important fact about life; whover decided when a person becomes "old"...didn't know what they were talking about...My theory is; you're as old as you think you are....(I'm thinking about it..haven't decided yet.)
