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

Dad’s Rainbow At Midnight
 

It was after World War Two was over
And the fighting was all through.
 That Dad saw a rainbow at midnight…
Like a symbol of his love for you.
 
You spoke of his courage, dear mother…
How honor and pride helped his faith
To carry him safely toward freedom
And the girl who’d promised to wait.
 
I’m proud to be fighting here, mother…
I’m honored to serve Uncle Sam…
For the same FLAG Dad fought for is flying
Over his son here in Viet Nam.
 
Each night as I kneel in this jungle
I offer my thanks to above.
I pray I’ll be seeing that rainbow…
The rainbow you so proudly spoke of.
 
 God bless our home in the country…
The home once only a dream…
Inspired by a rainbow at midnight…
The rainbow that Daddy had seen.

Matthew 24:6
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars:
 see that ye be not troubled: for all these things
 must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
 

Zechariah 9:8
And I will encompass my house with
them
 that serve me in war, going and returning,
 and the oppressor shall no more pass through them:
 for now I have seen with my eyes.
 
Genesis 9:13

I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be
 for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
