I love writing poetry, but I enjoy quilting even more.
Often my poetry comes to me while I'm sitting quietly and quilting, and is jotted down on my scratch pad for later entry on the computer.

You are not alone.  We all have questions, doubts, and fears which try to weaken our faith. 

No matter where you may be on your particular life path, or what problems you are facing, you are not alone.  Someone else has faced the same or similar challenges. 

You CAN make it through the storm and walk into the light again with renewed hope and faith.

Book Review:

Joni & Ken: An Untold Love Story
by Ken & Joni Eareckson Tada

This is the true love story of Joni and her husband of 30 years, Ken Tada. A love story showing what it truly means for a man and a woman to live in love… in sickness and in health.   Even the honeymoon wasn’t easy. Did Ken realize what he was getting into when he proposed to Joni, a quadriplegic woman? As their marriage years moved on, Ken became increasingly overwhelmed by the never-ceasing demands of caring for Joni, who begins to experience chronic, extreme, nightmarish pain. Ken sinks into depression, and the couple finds themselves on parallel tracks in life, married and living under the same roof but drifting apart emotionally.  But as they fight for their marriage and find their way through the mazes of depression and pain, they wrap their two lives around their rock – Jesus.  During Ken’s denial of Joni’s diagnosis, and Joni’s thoughts of how wonderful a quick exit to heaven would be, they experience a personal visitation with the savior you will never forget.

A collection of all the spiritual and inspirational poetry from all of my previous books along with many new poems written in 2012.

The poems in "Idle Thoughts" are presented with special thanks to the Poem of the Day Yahoo group where George Smith helps get our creative juices flowing each April and November by sharing daily poetry prompts from Robert Lee Brewer's Poetic Asides blog

Without his help, I would write very little and spend all my time quilting or playing games on my Kindle. As I have mentioned in other notes, I am not a driven poet, but a driven quilter and part time poet! Included here are personal reflections, thoughts on writing, the world around us, and a giggle or two to make you smile.
