Discovered my love for poetry, and literature in general, as a senior in high school and it developed into a lifelong passion which has provided much inspiration and enjoyment. I began writing in my mid twenties.

In general, I am just a great lover of life. I am married and we have a blended family of six children (one who is now in Heaven), eleven grandchildren and two great grandchildren. If you read many of my writings, you will discover the most important relationship in my life is with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

The Scent of Water Contest - Updated

Blog Posted:7/6/2014 4:21:00 PM

Hello to all....

I have been away for a week visiting my sister in Minnesota who is recovering from surgery for a brain tumor. I missed congratulating many of you on your recent wins. Please accept my congratulations here; there are too many for me to catch up.

I have posted my first contest titled "The Scent of Water." I hope many of you will write a fabulous poem on the theme of renewal. Check out the quidelines on the contest page. I will be offering a tangible prize for the first place winner. I have selected the prize for first place: a hardback copy of The English Spirit: The Little Gidding Anthology of English Spirituality.

Once more, thanks to all of you who made the effort to welcome me to this community. You are a blessing.

    The title and idea grabbed me and I wrote for the contest within minutes of reading about it! Redemption and Salvation are two subjects I am very familiar with.

    Thank you, sweet Olive. She is cancer free as of June. We had a celebration of that when I was there.
