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

Happy Birthday To My Sister

 
Your fingers used to curl around
Just a single one of mine.
 You would follow in my footsteps…
I could not leave you behind!
 
You trailed me through the barnyard
As I performed my daily chores…
And knelt faithfully beside me
As I scrubbed those farmhouse floors.
 
And since I was your only guest
For that after dinner tea,
I could choose the entertainment
And, of course, I chose ET.
 
You learned the words to all his songs…
We sang through the afternoon…
Until mama claimed our guitar
Which was, of course, her broom.
 
We played jacks and pick up sticks
Sprawled on that wooden floor.
Of course, you always won each game,
Because you were keeping score.
 
You were the cutest little kid…
Blue eyes and golden hair.
And you so loved your big sister…
Guess I was real blessed there.
 
Though time and distance parted us
Because life works that way…
It’s brought us back together
And together we will stay!
 
You’re much more than a sister…
You’re a buddy and a friend.
The trail we’ve blazed together
Is a trail that will not end.
 
These rhyming words are all I have
But I’m hoping they’ll portray
All the love that’s in my heart
Today on your birthday.


 
Happy Birthday Little Sister!!!!
Shirley Ann Babin...September 3, 1947

Psalms 103:17
But from everlasting to everlasting
the LORD'S love is with those
 who fear him, and his righteousness
 with their children's children--

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SISTER
