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

The Arrival

 
On the twenty second day of January
Two thousand and fifteen,
God sent the signal and his birth
Went into its routine.

 
Knit together in his mommy’s womb
And so anxiously a-waited…
This joyful moment brought more mirth
Than his dad anticipated.

 
Through months of raging hormones…
 A roller coaster uncontrolled!
 Today both Mom and Dad are awed
By this little life they hold!

 
He is worth all the complexities…
All the swelling, the weight gain.
Worth the nine months of discomfort…
Yes, he’s even worth the pain

 
He’s been named Gavin Michael.
He’s a beautiful man child.
He looks so much like his daddy
That it makes his mommy smile.

 
Ahh, God has blessed this family!
Our hearts are filled with so much joy.
And we are so thrilled to announce it…
Hallelujah! It’s a boy!!!!

Margaret and Dustin Lujan~~
 
 
~~Author’s Note~~  
This is my first great grandson…I have
5 great
granddaughters… and I am just elated to add
a little guy to our family tree. Yay, once again
a little boy batting a ball, running with a football,
trucks and other boy toys scattered all over the 
floor...I love the thought!!!
 
        
 
"(as it is written in the Law of the Lord,
 "Every male who first opens the womb
 shall be called holy to the Lord")"
 [Luke 2:23]
 
 
For you formed my inward parts;
 you knitted me together in my
 mother's womb. I praise you, for I
am fearfully and wonderfully made
Psalm 139:13
