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

Life’s Railway To Heaven
 
I dreamed I was taken to Heaven…
And, O, what a beautiful dream!
The angel assigned to assist me
Was part of a welcoming team.
 
The train held great numbers of people
With angels assisting each one.
Every ticket was stamped with a signet…
Each one of them signed by The Son.
 
The engineer looked so familiar…
Although I knew we’d never met.
Somebody said his name was Stephen…
His smile was as soft as they get.
 
The conductor chatted so sweetly…
His every word warmed my heart.
I saw on his tag the name David
As he signaled the train to depart.
 
The trip lasted no more than a minute.
The only fuel used there was faith.
I rejoiced as life’s railway to Heaven
Stopped sharply at God’s Eastern Gate.
 
Just inside that gate stood my husband
With my sister and like a family affair…
My brother, my mother, grandparents
Aunts, uncles, and friends were all there!
 
Then all of them faded real faintly
Although I could still feel their breath.
They just had to make way for Jesus
The One who’d rescued me from death!
 
O, what a fantastic reunion!
I awakened with smiles on my face!
 I rode that railway to Heaven…
  Got a glimpse of God’s glorious Grace!

Dedicated to Trinity

 
 

Revelation 22:1-5  Then the angel showed me the river
of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing
from the throne of God and of the Lamb through
the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river,
the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit,
yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree
were for the healing of the nations.  No longer will there be anything accursed,
but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it,
and his servants will worship him. They will see his face,
and his name will be on their foreheads.
And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun,
for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.



JESUS HUGGS
