ALL LIVES MATTER
ACRES OF DIAMONDS
THE MUSIC OF LIFE
HOPE AND FAITH
CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS
THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE
AIN'T NO ROCK
PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE
HE CHOOSE ME
SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD
SETTLED OUT OF COURT
BASKET OF EGGS
The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY
IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART
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

Nightmare On Near The End Street
It began on a such a sweet note
With the sniffing of a flower…
How could a thing of beauty
Spew a scent to overpower
A man of strength and statue?
Just how could a flower bed
Suddenly become a trap
Seizing body parts and head?
The flower bed became a beast
Out of the Book of Revelation!
He must have missed the Rapture
And stepped into the Tribulation!
Encircled by the wired trap
With half his body in the ground
He could feel the sting of scorpions
As this wired hand held him down
His breathing became labored
As he thrashed to free himself!
Dear God why had he not spent time
With that Bible on his shelf?!
What were those verses he had read
Seemed so many moons ago?
How was this nightmare going to end?
He was desperate now to know!
The darkness seemed so heavy
There was not a shaft of light!
He could feel the evil presences
As his heart pounded in fright!
“O, sweet Jesus, please forgive me!”
He screamed out his heart’s desire.
“Give me one more chance to serve you.”
His words snapped every single wire!
Dripping wet with perspiration
He awakened with a start!
It had been a nightmare, after all!
Such relief flooded his heart!
But…could this be a warning?
What did those scriptures say?
He grabbed the Bible from the shelf
Then bowed his head to pray..

Revelation 1:19, "Write, therefore, what you have seen,
what is now and what will take place later
“For then there will be great tribulation,
such as has not been from the beginning
of the world until now, no, and never will be. “
