THE RESTING PLACE (For Kathy)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PASTOR RYAN
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
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY AFTON
ON THIS 4TH OF JULY
NOT KNOCKED OUT
Reflection On Racism
A LETTER TO MY DAD (FATHER'S DAY)
THE SMELL OF SUMMER
THE COLOR OF HOPE
THE CREATION EXPERIENCE
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY TOMMY
ALL IS WELL

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.
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~~
