The focus of this site is my tag line, “Exploring the invisible and visible realms of God through people, circumstances, and scripture; as it is manifest through writing, pictures and quotations.” I am retired except for my varied interests. They include family, writing essays and poetry, Biblical study and gardening. Upward Bound is the culmination of my life’s goal. As we live, our challenge is to prepare for the heavenly home. For this reason, I’ll strive for inspiration and encouragement in the hope of bringing readers as well as myself to a heartfelt relationship with God.
