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

 Exactly Like My Mama Did

 

Did those words come from me?
Oh goodness, no, I wouldn't kid!
But can't you see how much I sound
Exactly like my mama did!
 
Those were her words, of course,
So exactly...so precise.
She always told me that one day
I would be using her advice.
 
 O, indeed, I love to cook!!
But, then,  I  guess you've noticed, too,
That I am making every dish
Exactly like she used to do .
 
I use garlic pods galore
And so much pepper is poured in!
"It's got to have a lot of spice,"
She'd always tell me with a grin.

 
I stared into the bathroom mirror
And, all at once, it did occur
To me that someone staring back
Seemed to look a lot like her!
 
And, gee, here I go once more
Tuning in classic TV.
I can't seem to get away
From those shows she watched with  me.
 
I Love Lucy and Gunsmoke...
Bonanza and The Twilight Zone...
But every weekend of my youth
The Grand Ole Opry was turned on.

She had a thing for Ernest Tubb...
 I guess he rubbed off on her kid...
Because I really love his voice...
 Exactly like my mama did!

Mother's Day 2015
 
Proverbs 31:38 
 "Her children rise up and bless her."
 
 
 
 
Happy Mother's Day In Heaven Mama!!

 

 







EXACTLY LIKE MY MAMA DID
