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 Don't Do Mardi Gras


It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature
Quotes a bygone TV ad.
Well it’s not nice to fool a friend
Or to break the trust they had.

No matter what the circumstance…
Honesty is still the key.
And friendships are still built on trust
Or at least they are to me.

I have never worn two faces…
Never hid behind a mask…
But doing so must take great strength
Because it seems like such a task.

Well, what you see is what you get
When you encounter me…
Because I am just who I am
And that’s who I’ll always be!

For Heaven’s sake, please live in truth…
Only devils live in lies.
And don’t you know that God can see
Right through that fool disguise.

Yes, I know that this is Mardi Gras…
But it's not the Twilight Zone.
So please be real with God and me
Don't put that darned mask on.

Matthew 7:16
You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered
from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?


Galatians 5:1
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free
 Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again
by a yoke of slavery.
