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 Eagle Has To Pray
 
A nation carried on the backs
Of  brave warriors laid to rest
Needs to kneel in memoriam
In honor of their country’s best. 

 Many soldiers would be shocked
To see things they fought for stray
So far from God and Country
That the Eagle has to pray.
 
If the flag still stands for freedom,
Then why must it be a shame
To show it off on a lapel pin
Or to hang it in a frame?
 
Every flagpole in America
Should be flying colors proud.
She’s a symbol of the USA...
She should stand out in a crowd!
 
She went before George Washington
All the way to Viet Nam.
She flew in fervor in Iraq...
 So ardent in Afghanistan.
 
Once being an American
Meant belonging to a nation
Whose money read “In God We Trust”
And really meant that declaration.
 
 Being politically incorrect
Doesn’t carry too much weight...
But can the scales be balanced
In total fairness here of late?
 
Patriotic people like myself
Never thought we’d see the day
   When we'd slip so far away from God 
 That the Eagle has to pray!
