The mountains seem unchanging
as I gaze upon them today
Yet down through the ages they
have fallen and crumbled away
through earthquakes, floods,
 forces of nature.
Some have been built back up
You can see where they have
not always been the same.
They are always changing,
And I see as I never have before –
nothing is unchangeable,
in this world, except God.
 HE ONLY is the “Rock” on
which we can stand.
All other things WILL BE
shaken and fall
regardless of how firm or
permanent they appear.

About clarabetty

I have always loved to write, it seemed as if I was born with a pencil in my hand. I have been a Christian most of my life and what I write is from that viewpoint. Within that framework I try to be factual and authentic in my feelings, to show that we are all alike and have similar problems and joys and that there is a Way through them... I took journalism in college and have done PR for various organizations. The genres I frequently write in are prose, short stories, essays, fiction and non-fiction for children and humorous articles, but what really speaks to me is poetry.I love to read what others have wrote and to try my hands at it.. You will find many poems here, mostly free verse. My sincere hope in sending these writings out into the vast cyber- world is that what I write will impart knowledge, lift someone up, give someone a chuckle to help get them though the day. I love to learn and pass on what I learn. to others. I believe "knowledge is power" if it is used rightly, and that "the pen is mightier than the sword." Just think if more people were writers, artists and dreamers, there might be less war and more love In the world. I hope you will 'like 'my blog and give me feedback so I know how I am doing and "Y'all come back- ya hear!!".
