ALL LIVES MATTER

ACRES OF DIAMONDS

ON ASSIGNMENT

HEAVENLY CHOICES

SATAN'S PLOT



THE MUSIC OF LIFE

MY MIRACLE

HOPE AND FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS

Live-streaming

THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE

SPIRITUAL THINGS

AIN'T NO ROCK

20/20 Vision

PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE

HE CHOOSE ME

SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS

The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

THE SUNDAY STUDENT
 

Dressed in lovely laced attire...
Donning a going-to-meeting look.
She sat beneath the shaded tree
To study from the Holy Book
 
Knowing she had lots of time
Her mother still had much to do.
 The little ones would all need help
To dress up in their finery, too.
 
Feeling pretty in her bonnet,
She smiled, turned to another page.
She knew she must review the chapter
If she intended to engage
 
In the Sunday school discussion.
Something she delighted in.
She had memorized the verses...
She was so ready to begin.
 
That she was a five star pupil
Made her feel a wee bit proud.
But she wasn’t one bit bashful.
She'd volunteered to read out loud.
 
Countless awards adorned her wall…
Certificates of every kind.
She knew the Bible books by heart…
Recited Psalms from line to line.
 
She really loved that Book she held…
Had been drawn to it from the start…
From the moment she’d met Jesus
And invited Him into her heart.

Prompt 13-Monet

 
“Study to show thyself approved of God,
A worker who needs not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.”
2 Timothy 2:15
