MERLE'S ARRIVAL

YOUR PLACE IN GOD'S HEART

TRY A LITTLE KINDNESS (The Plight of the HOMELESS)

GROWING IN THE SPIRIT

HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY TO MY GAVIN



THE WORD RIGHTLY DIVIDED

DIVINE FAVOR (Happy New Year!)

WHAT IF THERE WAS NO CHRISTMAS???

THE TWO-HEADED SNAKE

THE TRUTH

WHEN SICKNESS PAYS A VISIT (For Sandy!)

THE RESTING PLACE (For Kathy)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PASTOR RYAN

FAITHFULNESS

GOD'S PLAN

BORN AGAIN

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY GRANDSON TOMMY

LORD HE NEEDS TO BE BROKEN

SOFTLY COMES SEPTEMBER

THE FAITH CONNECTION

PURPOSE OF LIFE

AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY (911)

THE CLOSED DOOR

WE CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST

THE PROMISES OF GOD

THE POSITIVE PRAYER

LOOK WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE!

THE DAYS OF ISHY AND DISHY

SINLESS YOU SAY?

WHAT IS THE POINT?

THREE MINUTES TILL MIDNIGHT

INDENTITY CRISIS

Elvis ~N~ Me

In Remembrance of Elvis

 
I cannot go to Graceland
To join in the celebration.
Although I know the trip would meet
My every expectation.
 
Friends and fans are gathering
To honor and recall
The boy who dared to rock and
 Rocked the heartstrings of us all!
 
A phenomenon describes you best
But can this be the right word?...
Because, Elvis, you beat everything
We’d ever seen or heard!
 
You blazed a path in music
Like no one before or since!
There are no adjectives to add…
No descriptions could convince
 
That what we witnessed was, in fact,
A once in a lifetime thing!
Yet in the whirlwind of it all
Stood a fellow who could sing!
 
And you lured us with your love songs…
The world fell in love with you.
You had it all... talent, personality,
And, of course, the good looks, too!
 
Your compassion is on record
As is your generosity.
The way you loved your mama
Always touched the heart of me.
 
It’s been a lot of years since you
So quietly slipped away
Yet you still live within the hearts
Of all your fans today.
 
Your popularity still holds…
Your music still stands strong.
We loved you tender, Elvis …
Just as tender as your song.

Malachi 3:16
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Book of Remembrance
" Then those who feared the Lord spoke
 to one another, and the Lord gave attention
 and heard it, and a book of remembrance
was written before Him for those who fear
 the Lord and who esteem His name." 
 
 
 

~~Dedicated to all Elvis fans~~
