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

DEAREST ISH

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY TOMMY

ALL IS WELL

WHAT IF TOMORROW NEVER CAME

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY NIKKI

This is concerning my son...

SHELTERED IN THE ARMS OF GOD

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY JONI

ONE OF A KIND

MEMORIAL DAY MEMORIES

THREADS OF LIFE

PONY TAIL PURSES

EXACTLY LIKE MY MAMA DID

THE RIGHT DIRECTION

NO OPTION

GOD'S HAND OF PROTECTION

A GOD MOMENT

TO BE LIKE JESUS

THE PINE TREE CROSSES

WHAT DOES CALVARY HAVE TO SAY? (Revisited in respect of Holy Week)

SWEETLY COMES THE SPRING

Know That You Are Loved

STORMS OF LIFE

THE LIFE CHANGING PHRASE

ODE TO FRANCES AND FRIENDS

MY SPECIAL VALENTINE

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~~
