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 Grandson Tommy
 

Another year beneath his belt...
Time to celebrate once more...
One more candle on his cake...
For he's now twenty-four



We once called him Little Tommy
But we can't do this anymore...
Men of his size are very much
Considered big men, that's for sure!
 
 Now, big may not be in height and weight
Or intelligence supreme...
But in character, insight, and soul...
Things which are so seldom seen.
 
Once a sweet and chubby baby
I could bounce upon my knee...
But, now-a-days the bouncing
Would be Tommy bouncing me!
 
I loved him from the moment
I first held him to my heart...
And this love has never faded
Although we're many miles apart.
 
Though he's faced many an obstacle,
He's conquered one and all.
And, in my eyes, these accomplishments
Have made him stand real tall!!!
 
So congratulations, Tommy...
And a Happy Birthday, too.
Please know this always, Yankee Boy,
Your Cajun Grandma does love you!
 
Love,
Grandma Doris
