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 KITE
 
Dennis was devastated!
What would his daddy do?
Dennis dreaded facing him
Because in his heart he knew
 
He had disobeyed his dad...
 Disregarded the man’s rule...
Playing at the park when he
Should have spent the day in school.
 
He had really been too eager
To fly that fearsome kite.
Now it was tangled in a tree
And he was tangled in his plight!
 
That Dennis could be doubting
His dad’s forgiving grace
Was just the keynote that could keep
 Him from his rightful place.
 
As son he had some privileges...
Mercy surfaced for his sake
And just the simple sorry word
Was really all that it would take.
 
It’s much like God, our Father,
Dealing with the human race.
He’s aware of all our weaknesses
Yet hopes we know our rightful place.
 
Sons are assured forgiveness
Fully paid for at The Cross...
 A sorrowful repentant soul
Never has to suffer loss!
 
Unlike doubtful little Dennis...
We know whom we have believed.
We’re confident our Father cares
So our cares are all relieved.
 
Yes, at times we may get tangled
In the world with all its strings,
But we fly higher than a kite
Because we’re carried on God’s wings!

Dedicated to Janet and Mouse 


Galatians 3:26
For ye are all sons of God, through faith, in Christ Jesus
 
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
1 Peter 5:7
 
God is faithful and reliable. If we confess our sins,
he forgives them and cleanses us from everything we've done wrong.
1 John 1:9
