A writer and an artist. A musician as well.
In need of a Savior, I was just a shell.
I was a heavy drinker.
Alcoholic, truth to tell.
I did cocaine also. Anything they'd sell.
Finally hit my bottom...
God caught me as I fell. <[[[>< 1.2k followers / 63.4k words
Looking down upon the earth Where there you kneel to pray We know there is such grief for us As you search for a way To bear grief's wrath, And find a path, But this is what we say... The sky is deep, an azure blue There is no dreary gray There is no cold nor biting wind Where we are today.
There is no snow in heaven The leaves are always green There are roses here aplenty The biggest ever seen! It'll stun the eyes And bring surprise! You'll know what we mean When you finally get here And see where we have been!
There are angels singing! You won't believe the sound! There are colors never seen And diamonds on the ground! Don't be sad! You will be glad Although we're not around We who have been sickly Now every wound is bound!
Yes, we look down upon you Have compassion on you all. We rejoice in your happiness And soothe you when you fall.
But most of all we beg you Not to grieve too long! We are beholding Jesus! Bursting into song!
And though the world grows weary As on you have to plod There is no snow in heaven...
WE SEE THE FACE OF GOD.

In loving memory of Clinton & Gladys, and for all who are grieving loved ones during this holiday season. I'm sorry for your loss and praying for you.
Stars out in their billions Above a living sea Seagulls sleep on beaches The wind blows to the lea Old Mexico is haunting A place of History To these graceful sandy shores You invited me Your residence so gracious Where I could be free.
I picture Starry Starry Night Swirling colors, yellow, cream Italian Cypress blowing The deepest darkest green Vincent must have such a Muse What would he have seen? If he came to Mexico To stars like in a dream?
We exist neith different Skies In these shells of flesh & bone But we both seek the same prize We are NOT alone I would give all that I have To soothe your road of stones Yes, I'd give all that I have I'd give all that I own To give you all these billion stars
How do I even start this text? What words to use? What should come next? In my body, no longer vexed!
I can't remember this good feeling! My mind is giddy! My senses reeling! I finally received a healing! You best believe I have been kneeling... No devil brood to do more stealing!
I was ill. Terribly cursed. I went to the doctor Expecting the worst His response was not rehearsed... My kidney problem was reversed!
I had a problem on many points Uric acid in my joints
I had a fog inside my brain I felt tired, my body strained. My whole system felt restrained. My tears made my pillow stained.
Oh! But now I am so elated! All the symptoms have abated! Everything in us is related! More progress anticipated!
I might even find a job! There's Someone I wish to applaud Don't find it strange. Don't find it odd...
I give ALL the PRAISE TO GOD!!!

My kidney function has reversed! I was nearly in kidney failure... But now I am healed by the stripes of Jesus Christ! I will be bold about talking about HIM. I owe him everything. The uric acid in my joints has gone down significantly, and the same had affected my brain. There are a lot of other changes, also. Thanks for reading! ♡♡♡
In heaven Satan was the best, The worship-leader, very blessed Magnificent, all would attest Thought he'd be above the rest
He thought he should be in God's place That he'd slap Jesus in the face He fell from honor... fell from grace In the end he lost the race
God is TOUGH. They'll scream & shout! All Satan's angels in a rout In the end they got kicked out! Satan thought he had a plan Yep. He thought HE was the MAN Finished before the Book began He was like lightning as he fell And in the end he'll go to ****.
YEAH. God don't play. Don't take no guff. There's a point He had enough! Had His fill of ****** stuff... Let me tell you,
GOD IS TOUGH!!
Pharaoh thought HE was all that. On a golden throne he sat Yeah, he WAS a mean ol' cat Hebrew sweat made his land was fat
Put the Hebrews through a LOT But MOSES had another thought Pharaoh's heart was Hardened... caught Through Moses God Caused Egypt's rot...
Because of Moses' bravery Pharaoh ended the slavery.
God is TOUGH! They had no hope God gave Pharaoh Lot's of rope Through Moses God brought on a curse Plagues of sorts which Were the worst! Pharaoh thought He would be first But it played out As though rehearsed.
End of scene. Act. Then show! Moses cried, "LET MY PEOPLE GO!"
Pharaoh did as it appears THE HEBREWS WANDERED 40 YEARS!!
On the mountain God he wrote The Ten Commandments That he spoke. They were written for the Folk His very finger carved them out As Moses stood up on the mount. Moses came back for to find His people had just lost their minds! A golden calf is what they'd wrought With the gold that they had brought Moses made a golden draught And made them drink it as they ought.
He begged with God Not to destroy them! Other tablets to deploy them. To God's ways. There were Ten Commandments So the people's have a moral fence. God brought order. The Law was sent. So the people would repent.
God is TOUGH! So don't be fooled! He will judge... And by His rules! Those who follow are as jewels Those who don't are Devil's tools.
Now God has a dispensation To save the people! Save the Nations! God left heaven as a babe So the people could be saved! So His people could be well From spirit's sickness - Satan's spell. They called His name Emanuel.
From God's seed and divine birth Jesus came and walked the Earth His little flock he taught & gathered He was teaching of the Father. He taught goodness & great wisdom He taught us how to Find the Kingdom.
The Pharisees in anger brought His death upon Him, for he taught! He cast out demons. Healed many! Gave the people food aplenty! So the givers of the Law Hated him for what they saw Accused him of sin and vice So they crucified the Christ.
God is TOUGH! Jesus was cast down With bitter gall and thorny crown He put him in a criminal's grave So that many could be saved! Stripped of clothing and of pride The wrath of God was satisfied He put him in a criminal grave So that many could be saved!
By his blood and by his death He brought out the Lost, bereft. For three days he was Underground The women came and then they found He had come forth! He had the keys! From the devil took with ease ****, death, and the grave He took all these!
Now, Christ in Resurrection stands He's the greatest of the grand! He gathers people from all lands To bring them out With a mighty hand!
But you'd better take advice...
Accept MERCY.... FEAR THE CHRIST!!
