The GK truth :)

“To love means loving the unlovable. 

To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable.

 Faith means believing the unbelievable. 

Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.”   


(G.K. Chesterson)

With You

Never Alone
Never Forsaken 
Never Forgot

Regardless of what My Feelings 
tell me...

You have always been 
Calling Me
Leading Me
Watching Me 
and Following Me 

 No matter Where I go 

I cannot run...
fast enough
far enough
long enough
and escape...
your promise.

"I will

Our Friend Joe

Our Friend Joe

You and Me.
Lets make it
a date,
A date that
never ends.
When we
sip that
heavenly blend
its like holding
hands for the
first time.
Come lets go
tomorrow will
still come.
The coffee is
for us
to partake of it.
To share
love and smiles
over a tall
steamy cup.
Our friend
reminds us
of the many
flavors of life
and how
good it is...
of Him above.
Who is faithful
and gives us this
type of fellowship...
My Love, My Wife
My Friend.

let go...of the world.

the coming kingdom 
is among you.
lift up your heart
as a peace offering
to the King.

Put on your best 
arise your

do good...
let love ring. 

Son of David-
Your throne
is right here
in the midst
of your saints.

Give Glory 
to God
He lives 
and forgives...
He reigns.

When I asked Jesus into my life alot of 
stuff went out.  I am stoked! He put a 
song of hope in my heart. I made that 
decision on a Wednesday evening sit'n 
"Indian style" on the ground in "big peoples"
church, I was five years old at the time.
I remember God whispering to my heart
a sweet melody, " I love you unconditionally."
At that very moment a vast, real, and 
precious sense of peace filled my soul.
The words spoken in response from me
"I accept"...
...when words leave off music begins.

I was saved at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa while Chuck Smith was teaching through Matt.19. He read...Jesus said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven." I was not supposed to be there in adult church as they were pretty strict at making sure kids attended their own class. My shyness at the time convinced the deacon that I would not be a bother, so I was allowed in. Chuck talked about the loving nature of God and how faithful he was. faithful enough to die for me. Always there for me. I needed this as my split family left me wanting just a little more then human affection. God is Good...The Holy Spirit prompted me and I accepted His invitation to be one of His children.

Jacobs Well

as always 

Everyday I go 

to draw a drop

to drink.

Everytime I 
find rest---
for a time.
But then I go 
and I am filled
with the troubles
from my days.

I come back
to dip again--
quench my
thirst once more.
In hopes that it will last...
But realizing 
that the well I love
is destined to run dry.

I cry knowing 
that I will perish...
being left unfulfilled. 
and left holding nothing.

Lord Jesus I pray to you...
Please listen and reply. 
I want to be 
born again
Have a new life...
with peace inside.

Thank You for
reaching out 
your hand in giving---
water from above
Never stops...
Never dries...
Your love never dies...
Always flows.

To Spy Out Our Liberty.

To Spy Out Our Liberty.
You can't
do that
it's not
right it's
a left.
is for
the whimpy
and weak.
How will
you have
you are
of your life.

"I will not
perform that task.
You cannot
take away
my liberty.
God is free
and so
am I."
