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

I Am Part Cherokee


My mama told me her grandma
Was born part Cherokee.
Said Indian blood ran through my veins...
This fascinated me.


I questioned my granddad at length…
Read all that I could find.
Somehow my Cajun heritage
Was Cherokee combined.

Leaning toward the fanciful,
I found a place to lose
Myself in a game of pretend
And roles were mine to choose.

An Indian princess, proud and strong,
Was one I learned to love.
And I, in this fun fantasy ,
Was known as Little Dove.


My romps throughout the wilderness
Were magical to weave...
I lived and breathed in a world
Burrowed in make believe.

I soared with eagles…ran with wolves
And hunted with a bow.
Spoke languages of grisly bears
And of the screeching crow.

I felt so loved…so satisfied
In the course of my creation.
I was who I was meant to be…
Part of the Indian nation


I searched for stones for necklaces
Through streams of cool, clear water…
Mounted on a pure white steed...
Squired by an unseen Father.

Now, years away from that small girl,
I stand on progeny…
For Indian blood runs through my veins
I’m still part Cherokee.
