Written throughout the lifetime of the mother
of Vicki Rae Chris (Baker) Tinney.

About The Writer

I was born in Randolph, Utah
The coldest place in the state.
I was taught to seek perfection
And profit by mistakes.

My father was a rancher
Who chose the city life
For the health and happiness
Of his frail young English wife.

I was the sixth of their nine children
One of the four to survive,
I was loved, guided and pampered
All of my childhood life.

We attended church as a family
Taught the importance of school,
Education is a goal in life
To be used as life's great tool.

A pilot, writing or nursing
Were goals I thought might be,
But sewing and secretarial work
Became positions for me.

I was married, divorced and remarried
Two boys, three girls were my own,
We struggled but with effort built
Our house into a home.

I worked while raising a family
Was part time mother and wife,
I worked along with my husband
Nearly all of my married life.

I often look back remembering
The sorrows and gladness I knew,
My life is a success
Only because God had guided me through.

How will my grandchildren ever know
Of the thoughts that I have today
Unless I keep a journal
For them to read someday?

They will not know of my Mom or Dad
My grandparents, my cousins and too,
My wonderful aunts, uncles, and friends
Who loved me and guided me through.

How will they have any memories
Of the beautiful souls,
Who guided and protected me
Helped me achieve life's goal?

So my dear ones I will give you
Those memories so dear to my heart,
And hope you will keep a journal
It is never too late to start.

Tell of your joys and your sorrows
Tell of your struggles and strife,
Let the next generation know
What you made of your life.

If we talk about the Bible
There is so much that we could say,
It gives us a history of nations and peoples
And it teaches us how to pray.

It details the beauty of creation
Of how Adam fell that man might be.
It tells of peoples in bondage
And how they were finally free.

It tells of prophets, judges and kings
Disasters like there are today,
It is the guideline for living at our best
And will help us through life's way.

The Bible tells of Jesus and our Father God
Of our purpose and why we are here,
It can help us through difficult moments
Promising that God will be near.

The Bible is really priceless
You can find comfort in time of need,
But it really has no value to you
Unless you open it . . . . . and read.

Index: New Testament  Part 2

The New Testament tells of Jesus Christ
Of his brief sojourn here on earth,
Of the events leading to His crucifixion
And the happenings of His humble birth.

It tells of His baptism by immersion
How He chose twelve good men to follow Him,
How He healed the sick, performed miracles
And gave a goal for each of us to win.

He came to do the work of His Father
Setting the will of each one free,
To choose whatever life they sought
Offered the plan for you and for me.

After the ascension of Jesus, the apostles
Carried on, led by Peter, James and John,
Jesus had schooled them in their mission
For the work of God must go on.

The apostles healed the sick and administered
Which the Savior had taught them to do,
In the holy Name of Jesus Christ
They managed to carry through.

The New Testament tells of the revelations
Of events passed and those which are yet to be,
Gives the outlines for eternal progression,
In the realms of God's eternity.
