Keeping Your Eye On The Prize

We know God in the quiet places, on sunny, Spring afternoons near creeks that bubble with birds singing and a gentle breeze gliding over us.
We know Him in the dark of our closets, on bended knees, our needs expressed without words, our oneness with the Spirit wrapped in our breath.
We know God in the morning, when we wake to yet another day and thank Him for the grace of that present, the only gift, besides our salvation, for which we can be truly thankful.
We know Him when the world that changes rocks us to our very core, and we are floundered but for the safety of His wings.
“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18).



I am a 40-something Texan with a feisty cat and a supportive husband of 20 years. With a Master's degree in English with an emphasis on creative writing, I have taught creative writing at Texas Tech, won awards for my writing and been blessed to be mentored by Horn Professor and poet Dr. Walt McDonald. I earn a living by helping my husband's family run a health food store, but my avocation is writing. I hope you enjoy reading about some of my triumphs and tragedies as I continue to work on figuring out what life is all about and on growing my ability to share my writing. May your own journey be a blessed one.
