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

Dearest Ish

 
June has always been a sad month
In, oh, so  very many ways.
Although there are some celebrations...
There are some heartbreaking days.
 
Like back in June two thousand nine
When the Angels came for you...
My entire world was torn apart...
My heart broken in two.
 
O, I knew where you were going...
That you would simply be away...
Still it was so hard to let you go
And I've missed you every day.
 
If it weren't for my faith in God
The fact that we'll be back together
I'm not sure that I could handle life
 No, I really don't know whether
 
I'd be strong enough to cope with
Each endless day or lonely night
But because the Lord offers me hope
You have to know I'll be alright!
 
O, I still shed my share of tears...
I'm only human and I miss
The deep love mirrored in your eyes
And every loving tender kiss.
 
Darling, what we had was special...
Because Christ was the center of
Our lives, our home, our marriage...
The foundation of our love.
 
Just keep waiting by that eastern gate
Like you promised me you'd do.
I love you so much, my sweet darling,
And I'll soon be joining you.

~~Author's Note~~
I realize I should have waited until our anniversary
to post these  pictures...but my darling died on
June 12th and I wanted to look upon the happy
moments we made...the beautiful life we shared.


I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine
Song of Solomon 6:3



~~In Loving Memory~~
