Pure Sweet Breath

Vibrant Heartbeat, Yes I hear it!

Slumber to Rest,

And a Glad, Smiling Spirit,

Diligence in Striving,

Intrepidity of Exertion,

Confidence that’s Driving,

And Hope in Assertion;

Blessings in Superfluity

Cheerfully Giving without Greed,

Right Here Within Me

Is Everything I Need.

Sykesville and Patapsco Railroad, Sykesville, Maryland

John Cowgill: Stories of the Railroad


About twenty miles west of Baltimore and forty miles north of Washington D.C. off of Maryland Route 32 is the town of Sykesville, Maryland.  Once a mill and farming town, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad was extended there from Ellicott City to better connect the town with the ports in Baltimore.  Today, it is a charming small town on the Patapsco River with little shops and an old train depot that is now a restaurant.  Across the parking lot from the depot are an old train car from the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad and a caboose from the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.  It is here where you will find the Sykesville and Patapsco Railroad, a model railroad club.

You enter into the Chesapeake and Ohio car, and you see a large O-scale display before you.  You watch the trains go around and around and around.  You glance at the screen…

To My Mother

Poems and Petals

I see you in my dreams

I hear you in my mind

I feel you in my heart

I remember the very night

You flew from the land

And from my life

I am married now, Ma

I have a beautiful boy

And a daughter who looks like you

You are a grandmother now, Ma

Your legacy to the world

Your purpose lives on

I live your lessons every day

In my heart and in my life

And all I have is one tiny message

From my heart to yours

After all this time and what has been

Your baby girl is okay


In memory of my mother

We’re In This Boat Together ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

I’m riding out these waves,
no matter how big they get
I will stick out this storm
and over it I’ll not fret.

For, Jesus is with me,
we’re in this boat together . . .
and He has promised to me
any storm we could weather.

As the winds barrel down,
I’m going to coast along
they’ll not blow me away
regardless of how strong.

For, Jesus is my Anchor,
onto Him I’ll keep my hold
for, we’re in this boat together
no matter how hard we’re rolled.

I’m riding out these waves,
I’ve the perfect ship mate . . .
for, Jesus is in this boat with me
and I trust Him with my fate!


Psalm 107:29

“He maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof
are still.”
