An Inspiration

From pray'r that asks that I may be
Sheltered from winds that beat on Thee,
From fearing when I should aspire,
From falt'ring when I should climb high'r,
From silken self, O Captain, free
Thy soldier who would follow Thee.



From subtle love of softening things,
From easy choices, weakenings,
(Not thus are spirits fortified,
Not this way went the Crucified),
From all that dims Thy Calvary,
O Lamb of God, deliver me.


Give me the love that leads the way,
The faith that nothing can dismay,
The hope no disappointments tire,
The passion that will burn like fire,
Let me not sink to be a clod:
Make me Thy fuel, O flame of God.

About Me

My photo

A native of Amherst Co.,Va. grew up the eldest of 2. I have one brother and 2 wonderful neices and 3 dear nephews. I spent most of my adult life in Lynchburg, VA and currently reside in Amherst Co. again with my wonderful husband Mark, and two sweet kitties, Snowball and Graylin. I love being creative and love nature and God's creatures. My mother has been very instrumental in influencing me in being crafty, creative, having a love of gardening and working around the house. I love animals, crafting, organizing, decluttering, cooking, decorating, hospitality, exercising, reading the bible and enjoying God's creation.
