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 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,
Grandma

Psalm 148:5
Let them praise the name of the LORD,
for at his command they were created
