ISSUES AND ANSWERS
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

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.

(Our PoetryPoem Viet Nam Warrior
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.
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.
I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be
for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
