Some time ago, I began to write my most inner feelings to the one person I know who could understand my fears and sorrows. Jesus my Lord. I started each poem with "Dear Lord." I do carry on conversations with the Lord and when one of my friends for over 50 years read them, she encouraged me to put them in print. I had thought about it but didn't know how they would be accepted. Some of them have been printed on Herald A New Day and have been very well received. Kathleen and Melva both encouraged me and, voila, here we are. I have had a lot of things happen to me that I was forewarned about.

I have been near death's door several times but always managed to escape. I had a serious fall that left me with seizures (they are fully controlled.) I am a diabetic but also have that under control. This last episode with cancer really got my attention for in all my years of nursing I have been involved with Surgical Oncology giving chemo (etc)and now I am the patient.

I do hope you enjoy this series of poems. Please contact me by clicking on my name below and let me know what you think.
