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

A Father Remembered




As Father's Day approaches
My thoughts go tumbling back
To happy,carefree childhood scenes
Bib overalls and high haystacks.



My father-- just a simple farmer
With mud clinging to his boots-
Gave me so much more than life,
Love of family, love of roots.



I remember work worn hands
Pressing fondly to my cheek
Telling me how much he cared
In actions words could never speak.



I cannot take him flowers
They were not my father's way
I'll just kneel and thank my God
For my dad on Father's Day.
