ALL LIVES MATTER
ACRES OF DIAMONDS
THE MUSIC OF LIFE
HOPE AND FAITH
CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS
THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE
AIN'T NO ROCK
PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE
HE CHOOSE ME
SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD
SETTLED OUT OF COURT
BASKET OF EGGS
The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY
IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART
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 To My Afton
Your arrival slid right by the 4th...
You showed up one day late!
But we did light one last sparkler!
You gave us cause to celebrate!
I pulled back pretty folds of pink...
...Someone tucked you in so snug...
To gaze upon your tiny frame...
Then I felt my heartstrings tug.
There in all your newborn sweetness...
Smelling baby powder clean...
Was the cutest little baby girl
This grandma had ever seen!
Your little forehead wrinkled as
I rained kisses on your face.
If babies can sense love at all...
Love was sensed in that embrace.
Then, seems like almost overnight,
You were crawling on the floor...
You knew where the Cheetoes were kept...
You'd crawl into that cupboard door.
I'd dress you up in pretty things
Little dresses trimmed in lace...
But ,those Osh By Gosh overalls,
Were much more to your taste.
I watched as you grew up to be
Such a sweet and lovely girl
Someone I was so proud of...
Someone who blessed my world.
Nothing's really changed because
I still feel the same old way...
I thought I'd tell you in this poem...
Baby, have a great, God-blessed Birthday!!!
Love you always,
July 5, 2015
Let them praise the name of the LORD,
for at his command they were created
