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 JONI
 
On the twenty seventh day of May
In nineteen fifty nine
A baby girl came in the world
That baby girl was mine
 
Born with eyes so big and brown
So dainty and so sweet
Such a cutie…baby beauty
My heart fell at her feet
 
Although time can clear one’s mind
Some memories don’t erase
I recall each step, each fall
Each smile that crossed her face
 
I loved her baby powder scent
Her gurgles and her coos
Babyhood was very good
The usual spills and spews
 
 Much smarter than the average child
She sang when she was one
We did duets to record sets
We had a lot of fun
 
God must have seen some good in me
His Grace is without measure
Because why would He so lovingly
Bless me with such a treasure
 
The years have sped so swiftly by....
 How the Hands of Time rotate!
My sweet baby, now a lady,
 Is a foxy fifty eight!
 
Happy Birthday Joni Elaine!!!
Love.

Mother

JONI 'N MIKE

 
Psalm 127:3-5  Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward.
 
Psalm 139:13-16  For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.

John 16:21 When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.

James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
