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

Elvis ~N~ Me

In Remembrance of Elvis

 
I cannot go to Graceland
To join in the celebration.
Although I know the trip would meet
My every expectation.
 
Friends and fans are gathering
To honor and recall
The boy who dared to rock and
 Rocked the heartstrings of us all!
 
A phenomenon describes you best
But can this be the right word?...
Because, Elvis, you beat everything
We’d ever seen or heard!
 
You blazed a path in music
Like no one before or since!
There are no adjectives to add…
No descriptions could convince
 
That what we witnessed was, in fact,
A once in a lifetime thing!
Yet in the whirlwind of it all
Stood a fellow who could sing!
 
And you lured us with your love songs…
The world fell in love with you.
You had it all... talent, personality,
And, of course, the good looks, too!
 
Your compassion is on record
As is your generosity.
The way you loved your mama
Always touched the heart of me.
 
It’s been a lot of years since you
So quietly slipped away
Yet you still live within the hearts
Of all your fans today.
 
Your popularity still holds…
Your music still stands strong.
We loved you tender, Elvis …
Just as tender as your song.

Malachi 3:16
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Book of Remembrance
" Then those who feared the Lord spoke
 to one another, and the Lord gave attention
 and heard it, and a book of remembrance
was written before Him for those who fear
 the Lord and who esteem His name." 
 
 
 

~~Dedicated to all Elvis fans~~
