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

In Memory Always
 
Ish, my love, once more, again
Your memory has called me in.
For never can remembrance stray
Away from you on such a day.
 
You shared your very soul with me…
Your life, your love, your loyalty.
I saw your patriotic pride…
Your love of country magnified.
 
Your Army induced attitude…
Your deep respect and gratitude
For those who fought and gave their all
In answer to our country’s call.
 
A veteran of first degree…
A man who stood for liberty…
Who flew the flag and walked the walk…
Who listened to no tactless talk.
 
A man who prayed to God above,
In humble stance and sincere love,
For protection from the enemy
For this homeland of the brave and free.
 
I’ve never missed you more than now…
Yet I am comforted somehow…
For I can almost hear you say,
“Think of me on this Memorial Day.”
 
I love you,  Ish,
