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

Some things I take too personal...
It's part of my personality.
When someone hurts someone I love
Something seems to break in me.
Now I'm not saying that it's right...
Nor do I want to make excuses...
For the words that want to hurt right back
Or the anger some produces.
Yes, I've often turned the other cheek...
Just to have that one slapped, too!
And I've read the seventy times seven times
You've commanded us to do.
But I don't harbor un-forgiveness...
I know my heart can show You that.
But, Lord, I'm simply tired of being
Walked all over like a matt!
I just know You don't expect a child
Of Yours to be mistreated...
To overlook each hurtful wrong
Only to have them all repeated!
Yes, I've sought reconciliation
I've extended the request
It was ignored and me and mine
Were thrown out of the family nest.
I don't know why some must choose sides
But there's been so much confusion...
He said...she said... and the truth's been twisted
Into anyone's conclusion.
But You know the Truth...You ARE the Truth
And I just extend one plea...
When I stand before Your Judgment Seat
Let The Truth speak out for me!

~~Dedicated to my sister, Shirley~~
"Truthful words stand the test of time, but lies are soon exposed."
The LORD detests lying lips,
but he delights in those who tell the truth."
"A truthful witness saves lives, but a false witness is a traitor"
"Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me."
But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light,
so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done
has been done in the sight of God
For there is nothing hidden that will not become manifest,
neither anything carefully concealed that will never become
known and never come into the open.
