In the Midst of It All: A Collection of Christian Poetry by Linda Sharp

A news bulletin flashes across your television screen. There's a weather alert for the entire viewing area. A bad storm is headed your way. You hope this storm doesn't come to pass. But just in case, you take the necessary steps to prepare. You think that you can handle this storm on your own. You don't need any other protection or help. You have everything under control, so you think. Isn't that how our mind operates? We think we have everything under control. Our mind becomes clouded with wrong thinking. We get distracted by the static that enters our mind. In the poem 'Static in My Radio,' describes the thought process. The radio represents the mind.

About the Author

I'm a former educator. I've earned an associate's degree in Early Childhood Education. I reside in Euclid, Ohio. I've been married for twenty six years to Jerry L. Sharp. I'm a mother of two, and a grandmother of three. My love for writing began as a teenager. I dreamed that one day I would have a career as a writer. I wanted to write novels and children books. But my writing took a back seat. I decided to have a career in education. My passion for writing returned thanks to the inspiration of a church member. I write to glorify God and spread the message of Jesus Christ.
