Biography of Linda Winchell
I was born on the South side of Chicago in the forties.
I am now married and living on a farm in a small town in Concord Michigan. Was many things growing up, but have always been passionate about writing poetry and childrens' books and the love of God.
I love animals and nature and as you can see in my Poetry, they are some of my inspiration. No spell check on this site, maybe they need to put one on it?
I love to bake and cook and clean. And power walking and walks in the woods keep me healthy. I do not smoke or drink, but love to dance! I love to joke around and sing too. I pray for all the world. And if this includes you, GREAT! 'Thank you God! ' May God bless you and all of your days be filled with sunshine and the Love of life. It is all we have! One Day at a time!
God's Servant, Linda Winchell

Devotional: ' Easter', The First Fruit Of Spring' Easter will soon be here. Hopes of a bright and sunny day and a new beginning, in Christs' Resurrection. It also is a lesson of teachings for all of us. One, Easter should remind us that God loves us ordinary folks. With all of our flaws. Jesus Loved Peter, John and Mary. They had some issues. (Luke 8: 2) Jesus forgave Mary and then asked her to, 'go and tell the world'. Then, you have living proof that God blesses those who seek Him with all their heart. Here again, Mary's persistent faith and love was rewarded. Wasn't she the last to the cross and the first to His tomb? ' Great is thy faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day', (Lamentations 3: 23-24) Then, there was the promise that God will more than meet us halfway. Mary was a woman who was weak in her faith but strong in her love. She came to Jesus with what she had, her sins, and Jesus met her half way. Then, last but not the least of these is, Easter gives us hope for now and eternity. The fact that Jesus rose from the dead means that there is hope in this life and after death. Apostle Paul said, 'He will give life to your mortal body, (Spirit living within you) , (Romans 8: 11) . The same Spirit that Jesus gave to His disciple's, is living inside of us all. It will enable all of us to become what God has called us to become. 'Jesus is the First Fruits of Spring! ' Do we need any other food to feast on? God through Christ conquered sin and death, and provided us with eternal life with Him in Heaven.

'Take Me Fishing'
' Take me fishin Paw, ' was a young boys cry!
I have the worms I caught outside.
I crawled in the dark all night long,
In our yard, on the fresh mowed lawn.
I borrowed your flashlight, so that I might see,
The fattest of Night Crawlers, looking back at me.
