My name is
Shirley Jean Pickens. I was born April 5, 1938.
I have lived in the Atlanta, Georgia area all but the two years of my life
that my family and I resided in Winter Heaven, Fl. in my younger years.
I had always loved
and remember the times my Dad would read me books and poetry.
I would sit on his lap and he would read to me for hours on end.
ALWAYS TO REMEMBER....NEVER TO FORGET....
I began writing
poetry at the age of fifteen. My love of poetry
has always been a part of me.
I graduated from
Decatur High School June 1, 1956 and was married
to my husband, James, June 1, 1957.....45 years and counting....*smile*...
We are retired and enjoy travelling, fishing and spending time with our
grandchildren and friends. We have three children...actually six
since we don't call
their spouses "in-laws." ....*smile*.... We have three grandchildren and one
on the way mid December.
God has been so
good to all of us. I give Him all the glory and praise.
I always try and remember Him and the blessings He has given in my little
for it is He who puts the words in my heart to write.
Through my poetry,
I have gained so many wonderful friends on the net.
I would like to thank each of you for your blessed friendship in Christ.
To all of you, I
wish a wonderful "God-filled" "Blue Sky Day" always.
I truly hope that
in some small way, my little poems will be a true blessing
to all those who read them.
