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 Treasure Of Trees
 
Lord, I am so happy
That You created trees
I am almost certain
 All of Planet Earth agrees.
 
They’re lovely to look upon
 Shown in shades of green
But even more colorful
In a gorgeous autumn scene
 
In wintertime when all
The limbs are really bare
The sprinkling of snowflakes
Will summon quite a stare
 
They wear that certain sparkle
Display that certain shine
I love the winter blown
   White look of knotty pine
 
 You must have been excited  
 When time to introduce
The forest to the fabulous
And beautiful Blue Spruce
 
Then added the Live Oak
To this sun shaded scene
Standing with the White Birch
  The Elm, and Evergreen.
 
The Cottonwood, the Cypress,
 And the royal, regal Redwood
The giant Sequoia and the Palm
A well planted neighborhood.
 
The Maple and Magnolia
And so many sights to please;
Yes, Lord, I’m very happy
 That You created trees.

Dedicated to Janet
the nature girl

 
 

Genesis 1:11-13 
 11 Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning--the third day.
