My sister is so precious

She stands by God with me

She’s wonderful to talk to

About Christianity


Out of all our family

There’s only Jo and me

Who will be faithful Christians

From here to eternity


We talked of faith and God

And life, and this and that

It was so good to talk to her

We had a lovely chat


She came to visit me

I was delighted that she came

The more we talked and shared our faith

The closer we became


When God made us, I wonder

If we were side by side

We’re only born a year apart

That cannot be denied


What plans has God for us

If we stay strong and true?

Where’er we stray or travel

Jo, always I will love you


I’m so very, very thankful

I gave up the pills and booze

Out of Jo and alcohol

It’s always Jo, I’ll choose.

Writing my memoirs, musings, a little fiction and a lot of poetry as a way of exploring and making the most of my life ... ... Having had a break from writing my blog for more than three years, I decided to return to write my memoirs, some day-to-day observations, views and feelings. My passion is non-fiction poetry. I have a disability and use an electric powerchair called Alfie and let nothing get in the way of living life to the full. I believe that you can never do a kindness too soon and should give credit where credit is due. A smile or a kind word could make the difference between a good or bad day for a person - we never know what's going on for another soul. Those little things, perhaps, practised daily like a mantra, could mean so much to someone else. Thank you for visiting my blog and reading a little more about me. Please, make yourself at home here. You are very welcome. Ellie x 😊
