The Author of this Book of Poetry was born and raised in rural Stephentown, in Upstate New York, with four older sisters, and a younger brother. As a country girl, Norma was always interested in Reading and Writing and being Outdoors with Nature. Her love of Poetry is reflected in this inspiring, and often humorous collection, spanning over five decades, where she shares some of her hopes, dreams and sorrows, giving the Lord Jesus Christ all the Glory. As a young Mother she was touched by the Holy Spirit when her children were required, with her help, to learn daily Bible verses for the Five Day Club held at their home by a Christian teenager from CEF (Child Evangelism Fellowship). The verse she vividly remembers is Luke 19:10: "For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost." Shortly after that both she and her husband answered an Altar Call, at their local church, giving their hearts to the Lord. They did not know that the entire Church Body had been praying for their Salvation, as they had been taking their kids to Sunday School, but not attending The Author's Enjoyment, along with her Eight Grandchildren and her two Living Children, include Bible Study, Crafting, Sewing, Music, Camping and exploring the New England Seashore and the Adirondack Mountains. A married lady of 52 years to a loving husband, this book will culminate her desire for this Collection of Poetry to be finally published. As a Contributing Author of several Anthologies, other Publications include Poetry published in the Barrister Magazine, The County News and Views, The Country Register, the Troy Record, and Quill Books. Norma and her husband Bill worship the Lord at New Hope for Life in the rural Town of Nassau, New York where the Holy Spirit has inspired many of her Poems and Songs of Praise included in this Collection.
