This book is a collection of poems short stories and things remembered from the author's years of growing up. The poems were started when, while watching tv, I started writing down stuff about angels. The next thing I knew I had three poems written about angels. Things just kept going from there. The book of Ruth has always been a favorite of mine. Before I got through writing the story about Ruth, I felt led to write the story on Ester. A dear friend who is a retired school teacher, read these poems and stories and encouraged me to continue and put all my writings into a book. Many of the stories are from family experiences, so, one could say they really are true stories. I hope something in this book will touch and change someones life.
