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

SEEDS OF STRIFE

RICH MAN/POOR MAN/HEAVEN/HELL

JESUS IS MISSING

PERFECT VERSUS IMPERFECT

ABBA FATHER

THE UNDERDOG

BROKEN CRAYONS

TEN LOCKS

SOLDIERS

THE MYSTERY OF THE KHATAN

 The American Flag
 
She is lifted high to wave
To the free and to the brave.
Everyone who really knows her
Knows it’s not the wind that blows her.


 
 Those familiar with her fame
 Hail what the history books proclaim...
Not by worshipping her wars
But weeping for her battle scars.


 
She’s seen heroes fight and fall.
She’s covered some and cried for all.
When seemingly against all odds...
She’s made it by the grace of God.


 
 Sometimes smeared and stained with blood
And dragged through miles of muck and mud.
Spit upon, hated, and burned...
 Ignored by those so unconcerned.


 
But it’s not wind that keeps her stance...
She isn’t moving by mere chance.
We know the force it takes to fly her...
Each soldier's last breath blowing by her.
