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

FOR BETTER OR BEST

(In Memory of Ish) 

 
Mature love isn’t founded
On simply a feeling
But on promises, pledges…
On vows ever sealing.
 
Two people so bonded
They are never apart.
 It’s a surrender of souls
To affairs of the heart.
 

 
According to Genesis
    God’s plan was to please.
 In love He presented
His Adam with Eve.
 

 
And down through the ages
God granted each wish
In love He presented
Me with my Ish.
 
Only faith and real trust
 Can fathom forever
It’s for better or worse
And nothing will sever
 
A commitment of care
Symbolized by a ring
When two people share all
Life or death ever bring
 
My love has gone Home
But his memory’s here
Buried deep in my heart
To forever hold near
 
Our love climbed the scale
From better to best
And it hurt me to lay
My dear darling to rest
 
But just past the stars
Where rainbows don’t end
Is waiting for me
My true love …my best friend.

and my beloved is mine.”
