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 Dance

Happy Birthday Michelle
 

 
Happy Birthday to a southern belle…
Who defines her deep south breeding well.
Although born upon a Jersey shore,
Roots were established long before.
 
Endowed with easy southern charm…
A calming breeze and yet a storm.
A storm of dance across a stage…
The drum beat rolls …the floor boards rage.
 
So daintily yet dominating…
Lost in the steps she loves creating.
Her body tuned to every beat…
Bent to accommodate her feet.
 
What grace! What poise! What talent lies
Within each gift our God supplies.
Whatever else she’ll miss by chance
Michelle has never missed the dance.
 
And now she’s reached that magic age
When all the world becomes a stage.
Dance through it, child, God bless your way…
It's your # 22 birthday!
 
Love You,
Grandma

Judges 11:34
When Jephthah returned to his home in Mizpah,
 who should come out to meet him but his daughter,
 dancing to the sound of tambourines!  
 
Luke 15:25
Meanwhile, the older son was in the field.
 When he came near the house, he heard music
 and dancing.
 
Ecclesiastes 3:4
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
