My desire has always been to write. I have dabbled in my aspiration over the years and now find the internet an ideal vehicle to be able to write and publish/post anything I choose to write about. I am a Christian and I lean toward writing articles that will be of interest to other Christians. I love history and like writing articles telling stories about something that happened many years ago and that many people have not heard. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 62 years and we have two daughters, two grandsons and two great-grandsons. We are very blessed.

Creation - We Serve An Awesome God

Creation is one of the great mysteries of life. "The Message" explains creation clearly in Genesis 1:1-2, "First this: God created the Heavens and Earth-all you see, all you don't see. Earth was a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness. God's Spirit brooded like a bird above the watery abyss."
