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

Threads of Truth

 
Remnants sealed within a jar
In a rainbow colored blend…
As tangled as the streets of life
But ever binding in the end.
 
She picked up the jar of threads
Concentrating on each color.
 Her broken heart could almost hear
The words of her grandmother.
 
“Blue’s the color of the spirit”
The old woman would reveal.
“Blue can be so calming, child,
Like a blue sky makes one feel.
 
 Green is also very soothing…
As relaxing as a prayer.
God used green in trees and grass
You can feel it anywhere.
 
Why, land sakes, child, I do declare
I just love the color yellow.
I think happiness reflects this shade
When the good Lord picks your fellow.
 
Pink is the softest shade of love
It’s got that special gloss
 Jesus loved the world so much
 He laid His love upon a Cross .
 
Now, then, orange is real fiery…
  Like an apricot staged sun.
It speaks warmth, light, and comfort…
It’s a trinity in one.
 
I just love the color purple!
O, the creative thought it brings!
Royalty framed the universe
Yet we are sheltered by His wings!

The color red, her granny said,
Is the most important one.
It speaks about the Blood He shed…
The sacrifice of God’s own Son.”
 
She remembered each description.
The color black defined submission.
Brown, like the earth, stability
And purity was white’s addition.

Her grandfather's eyes filled with tears
He knew what she was feeling
That jar held more than bits of thread
It contained a type of healing 

 
She put down the jar of threads
Threw a kiss up Heaven’s way. 
Then whispered to her grandpa,
  "These threads of truth have much to say."

Dedicated to Rhonda

 
 
 
Behold, when we come into the land, you shall
 tie this scarlet cord in the window through which
you let us down, and you shall gather into your house
your father and mother, your brothers, and all your
father's household..
Joshua 2:18
 
And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand
him; and a three fold cord is not quickly broken.
Ecclesiastes 4:12
