Mary Magdalene

One summer eve in Galilee
I stood before my open door;
to me it seemed just one more night--
like all the others gone before.
Someone would come and, passing by,
would hear the tinkling of the bells,
would see the garish harlot's robe
and painted eyes beneath my veil.
Someone, a man like all the rest--
it did not matter much to me--
a nobleman, Samaritan,
a Roman or a Pharisee,
someone would pause and with one glance
strip me again of maiden pride,
and leaving, later, never know
the shame and shattered dreams I hide.
O, he would think me very gay;
he would not see my hollow heart
nor hear me curse him for his pay.
Just then I saw a band of men
approaching down the narrow road;
there should be one among that crowd
aho wants the favors I bestow.
Kind eyes met mine, and with one look,
He saw what others could not see;
He saw the hunger of my soul,
my loneliness and misery.

I only know that since that day
I live to walk along with Him.
His look of love has changed my life;
I need not sell my love again.
Tonight He dines at Simon's house__
all day the dusty paths we roamed;
but, still he waits, unwashed, unkissed;
small courtesies no one has shown.
My love for Him! It rolls and swells
till from His side I cannot stay;
I will wash His feet with tears of love
and with my hair wipe the sand away.

How Wonderful You Are

~How Wonderful You Are~ 
(Free Verse) 


How truly wonderful and awesome you are to all of us God 
You shower us with all your blessings and your glowing Grace 
As days and years of our life rushes by quicker than any flashing light 
I'm just looking forward till I get to see your divine and sweet face 

Everything around me just shows me that you truly live here with us 
You've written it and designed it all with your own Almighty Hands 
You are in my heart and my soul and always will be here close to me 
I can see You walking right beside me all the time in my mind's eyes 

How wonderful You are to us all my sweet and wonderful Lord and King 
The whole world sings You songs and praises of worship and glory 
You created us in your own image and made everything for us good and pure 
But man disobeyed and sinned and brought in evil and death in everything 

As God saw this happened and sin corrupting inside every single man immortal's soul 
He sent down His only Son Jesus to die for us upon the cross and make us whole.

You Will Feel

be mindful
human rights are human ways
that lead down

be careful
the words above always remain
wear no crown

trap the sin
destroy the lie of conceit
look within

don't consume all that you see
you will feel
wrong like fire

The Song My Heart Sings

Each morning as my eyes awaken
A lovely song in my heart is heard
Its melody is more than enchanting
It inspires me with amazing words

How could I ever live without you
Lord, why would I ever turn away
From your spirits song of deep love
Which within my heart simply stays

I deeply breathe your perfect harmony 
Accepting your kiss of a love divine
Happiness paints my world beautifully
Since your wonderful gift became mine

Lord, I will always let the world know
How truly blessed my life really is
From that very first perfect moment
As you spoke to me the words I forgive

All that I thought would not be possible
Suddenly in an instant became very true
As my heart humbly responded joyfully 
How much in life I really needed you

I will seek new ways each morning
To happily lift up your name in praise
Thanking you for making love a reality
As a treasured blessing which now stays.

How I Need Jesus


Dear Jesus…  I realize
how much I really need you!
  I want to honor, 
love and trust you!

I  know that others will
disappoint me…
I know that you’re here….  
And will take care of me!

  Your principles of holy
living is what you taught!
Love, Joy and peace…
is what you brought!

 May I bring honor 
 to your name!
Your message of salvation,
I need to proclaim!

Dear Jesus…  You’re all I need!
 And so much more!
It’s you that my life 
was meant for!

 I offer to you, my lord, 
praise and thanksgiving!
For all you’ve done,
 And the life you’re giving!

You all I’ll ever need!  
The anointed one!
There’s victory in YOU!
Life’s battles are won!

Do You Have Movies And Magazines That Don't Belong In Your Home


I visited a garage sale.  And had a 
surprised look on my face.
I noticed that some things
 were "out of place."

To my right... Was a shelf filled with books.. 
And Christian ones too.
To my left...  Was a sign that read; 
"I have adult movies for you."

I wondered and thought with 
some kind of amazement.
"Does this person read these books. 
 And watch this "entertainment?"

This is common in many Christian homes...
Often...  People cross God's 
"boundaries" and "safety zones."

Anyone can go to church. 
 Pray, sing and "shed a tear."
Not realizing that sin's temptation
 is drawing ever so near.

Do you seek God's holiness and the 
power of Jesus' name?
But each night...  Before bedtime... 
 Things aren't quite the same...

Have you opened up your heart 
and mind...  And live life unfulfilled?
Is this the way you ought to live? 
 Is this what God has willed?

He desires to live inside of you.
  And help you to discover.
With any stronghold in life.  He'll help you to recover!

Are things in life "out of place?"  
And need to be put back together?
Allow God's word to guide you!  
His promises are forever!

Everything will be where it should be...  
With Jesus In control!
Only he can defeat the enemy that 
seeks to destroy your soul!

Love Thy Brothers

There are two laws that precede any others:
Love first thy God, and then love thy brothers.
But when we see another engaged in some wrong,
do we offer forgiveness or join with the throng
casting their stones, as their hatred they spew
claiming God’s judgment to back what they do. 
“It says in the bible, don’t do this, don’t do that…”
Does anyone wonder why the message falls flat?

We go to our churches, and sing songs of praise
but then when we leave we embrace sinful ways.
We claim to know Jesus, we’ve felt of his love
but rather than spread that, we push and we shove.
Yet forcing our morals on others is flawed
do we really think that will bring them to God?

We seem to forget, life is meant to be hard,
that all of us struggle, and in that regard
we are no better than any known sinner,
if we must cleanse a vessel, can we make it the inner?
When others are doing some act we despise,
trust God with the judgment and silence the cries.
Let’s open our hearts, look again at God’s child
struggling through life, and by others reviled.

Let us offer a haven, our friendship, and care
let us strengthen the weary, give hope to despair.
For loving thy brother, comes not with condition
and failing to do so is guilt by omission.
For there are two laws that precede any others:
Love first thy God, and then love thy brothers.

SHAKEN BUT NOT BROKEN

 
FROM THE MOMENT THAT SHE MET HIM 
SHE WAS AWESTRUCK!!! 
HE HAD THE WORDS, HE HAD THE CLOTHES, HE HAD THE LOOK 
HE HAD THIS SMOOTH, UNCANNY WAY 
THAT EASED HIM RIGHT THROUGH HER DEFENSES 
THAT LEFT HER DANGLING, HELPLESS...FROM HIS HOOK 
SHE WAS A CHRISTIAN WOMAN, AND 
SHE MINISTERED IN CHURCH 
HAD NEVER KNOWN A MAN LIKE THIS BEFORE 
A MAN WHO KNEW THE BIBLE 
EVERY CHAPTER...EVERY VERSE 
A CHARISMA, SHE FOUND TOO HARD TO IGNORE 
HE DATED HER THE CHRISTIAN WAY 
SHE MET HIS FAMILY 
THIS HUMAN BROOM, WHO SWEPT HER OFF HER FEET 
RESISTING EVERY SEXUAL URGE 
UNTIL THEIR WEDDING NIGHT 
BUT ON THAT NIGHT, HE TOOK HER, HOT, AND SWEET 
HER SPIRIT KNEW, BEFORE HER "MIND" CAUGHT ON 
SOMETHING HAD CHANGED 
A HORROR UNEXPLAINED HAD GRIPPED HER SOUL 
THIS CHRISTIAN MAN SHE MARRIED 
HAD TURNED OUT TO BE A DEMON 
AND HER COMPLETE DESTRUCTION, WAS HIS GOAL 
WITH COLD METHODIC PURPOSE 
HE HAD PLANNED HIS WIFE'S DEMISE 
HE GAVE HER AIDS, AND THOUGHT HER FATE WAS SEALED 
SHE WAS SHAKEN, BUT NOT BROKEN 
AND WITH STEADFAST FAITH, SHE SHOUTED... 
"THANK YOU JESUS! BY HIS STRIPES, I'M HEALED!!! 
HE HAD COME TO CHURCH TO FIND A SAINT 
WHOSE LIFE HE COULD DESTROY 
THE DEVIL WRAPPED, IN CHRISTIAN MALE ATTIRE 
HE GOT IN THROUGH HER EGO 
AND DESIRE TO BE LOVED 
BUT OH PRAISE GOD, THE DEVIL IS A LIAR 
THE LESSON HERE, THE DEVIL 
GOES TO CHURCH AS MUCH AS YOU DO 
DELIGHTING IN DESTRUCTION OF THE FLOCK 
AND SHOULD YOU FIND YOURSELF A TARGET 
OF HIS DEADLY PURPOSE 
REMEMBER, ALWAYS...JESUS, IS YOUR ROCK! 

AMEN!

Truth be told, I'm giving God all the glory

Glorious the days and the way
I share his praise
God sends his prayer warriors 
to take away my pain
truth be told, his power lights my way
truth be told, I feel his presence as I pray
truth be told, he lifts me up everyday
truth be told, I'm giving God all the glory.

When I stumble I'm lifted up
God never lets me give up
when my body and mind is weary 
God becomes the strength within me
truth be told, God hears my every prayer
truth be told, God feels my every tear 
truth be told, he lifts me up everyday 
truth be told, I'm giving God all the glory.

If you're going through some things
and your heart is feeling heavy
God will carry all your burdens
God will lift the weight right from you
truth be told, God is the alpha and omega
truth be told, God is the almighty creator
truth be told, he lifts me up everyday
truth be told, I'm giving God all the glory.

New Creation

From bottom to top, 
my house was decayed. 
Through thousands of years 
of commands disobeyed.  
I girdled my loins 
to rebuild my home. 
I re-laid the foundation 
stone by stone. 
Brick by brick 
I rebuilt the walls. 
House was renewed with 
many victories small. 
I painted the house 
with colors of new zeal. 
I furnished it with 
virtues that heal. 
I planted the garden 
with flowers of love. 
I installed the fountains 
with waters from above. 
I sat in the garden 
admiring my creation. 
At last, to God 
I offered adoration.

Ode to Jesus

  Yes, all to Him I owe!

  He paid the price,
  the debt that I had owed.

  No greater gift He gave, His "life!"

  How precious is the blood!,
  of the lamb that was slain.

  For He rose "Jesus," that faithful Third day alive!;
  with all power over hell, death and the grave!

  How lovely and excellent is the name.
  For it is the name, that is above ever other names.
  "God is Salvation," "Jesus!"

  He is the resurrected glorified one.
  The commencement and the end to all things.
  Coming back again!

Will you walk beside me

You can walk a thousand miles barefoot and seal your soul for all eternity, you can walk a thousand miles barefoot even when the blistering sands of time comes upon you, even with the blistering winds of time tries to stop you. Your strength is your Shining Star. You can walk a mile barefoot and struggle to not cry, with sweat, and tears dripping down your cheeks, and your face, while you're trying not to step on the broken glass in the sand or even the sharp rocks that cut your feet, and still you walk barefoot as the lord endured it all with faith, you can walk for all eternity.

Blood stone Jewel

An iridescent sapphire cuts into the night’s sky clearly 
a gift unasked for and predestined appears solidity
love is the luster smelted inside the eastern chambers afar
 
Hooked upon the waxing moon’s burgeoning smile that shines
mesmerizing silver shadows dance under your bloodstained beams
beckoning freedom in an heavenly escape reflects back unconditionally 
 
A tantalising call nurtured on the precarious wind surrounds the soul
shaded Sacred Heart images dance beckoning inside chorographic unison
never imagined acceptance of grace awaits in your tender loving embrace

BODY OF CHRIST

I have loved you
intensely
as the master has commanded
I have spoken
the words of Truth
as I was taught them
I was joyful
to have known you
and I have bowed low , even to the ground
when I have failed you
I have known happiness
pain , conflict , strife
and peace
have soared with understanding
and fallen short
of standards
to perfect for my flesh
I have forgiven
even when seriously wronged
which I found
easier
to do than forgive my self
I have seen your
weaknesses and strengths
and found elation
when you have conquered
obstacles I considered
to large even for me
together we have walked
yes even run our course
been broken and repaired together
been still silent
even hours together in the same place
I have lived with you
without you
a room away
and a continent away
and yet never apart
We have loved
the same master
who has touched our hearts
with the Truth
that without you
Love could not exist
and I would be alone
having never known
something that was greater
than my self

I Will Die For You

Well and if you should come while I am asleep Lord
I want you to know I never meant to fall off the band
Wagon. If I have to live through the 7 year tribulation
And Christian persecution, famine and war I will not
Hide my light under a bushel no, I will stand up and
Proclaim your name...Jesus Christ my Lord and I Will
Die For You.
I will not take the mark of the beast
Never, no not ever... Let 'em kill me if that’s what it
Comes down to I will do whatever I have to do to
Prove my love for you and God even if it means
Being a martyr!
If I'm left behind I want you to know
I never meant to lose my way...Please forgive me Lord
I pray!
If I have to live through the days of terror
And evil I will be strong and steadfast, not giving
Into the devils temptation and I will be a better
Person than I ever was in the past, I will not fear any
Kind of evil in the valley of terror!
If I have to live through the 7 year tribulation and countless
Days of cold bloody wars. I will proclaim your sacred
Name...Christ Jesus My Lord, I will, I Will Die For
You!

She's Blowing In The Wind

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
My alegence is pledged to one who blows in the wind                                                                                               We are blessed to be in the Republic for which it stands

One nation, under God always, as our flag blows in the wind                                                                                 I have this treasured piece, folded and neatly tucked away

I must keep it secure, assuring that it never goes astray                                                                                          Since I have owned it, never has it seen the light of day

Perhaps someday, I shall set it free to blow in the wind                                                                                             I'd love to see it flap its wings, but I don't know when

This prized possession of mine has thirteen stripes                                                                                                Seven stripes are clothed in the hardiness of red

Six of the stripes are beautifully arrayed in purity white                                                                                                I must secure a flag pole and watch it blow in the wind

I am the grateful and the proud holder of my 48 state flag                                                                                    May God wrap us all in the blue color of vigilance, perseverance, and justice.

STRONG FAITH

      <(Strong Faith displayed sung/said throughout entire song)>
 
                                     
                                       Strong Faith


There are so many things in this life
So many obstacles that isn't right
You have to sit there for a minute
Be clear and no that Satan not always in it
Sometimes yo just have to beware
It's you and your personal choice
In sin nature
I am so glad that I repented
I hate to be late for my trip
To heaven when I pass this life
I am saved and guaranteed
That I won't be first nor last
I'm gonna be number eight
I believe I got this
I got strong faith, strong faith;
I got it, strong faith;
Use to be a sinner man
Now I'm just a repented soul
Use to say just any old prayer
head bowed down and folded hands
Sometimes I jut have to beware
It's me and my personal fears, (my choices)
Can't blame it on friend or family
Or even sin nature
I am so glad that I repented
I hate to be late for my trip
To heaven when I pass this life
I am saved and guaranteed
That I won't be first nor last
I'm gonna be number eight
I believe I got this
I got strong faith, strong faith;
I got it, strong faith;
So what if the world gonna end one day
So what if police and gangs shootings keep on 
So what if a major disease comes and terminates every family
So what if there's more tropical storms
And in Alaska still they try to keep warm
So what if there's a World War 3
So what if California drops off the continent
I shall and so will you be covered
By the blood of the one whose already set us free
And I believe, I believe, I believe
I am so glad that I repented
I hate to be late for my trip
To heaven when I pass this life
I am saved and guaranteed
That I won't be first nor last
I'm gonna be number eight
I believe I got this I got strong faith

A Mother's Love


A Mother’s Love… How precious is the love of a mother’s heart! Even as a child… It’s there from the start. A mother’s love knows no boundary or limit. It’s often shown by how much the mother gives it! Whether her children are young or growing old… And whatever circumstances in life may unfold… Her love is continually a solid foundation… That can’t be removed, torn or shaken. Her love is what is a “guiding force…” Even if her children’s lives stray “off course.” I’m thankful for the love my mother’s given… It’s surely influenced the way I’ve been livin’! To all of our mothers across our great nation… May we show them our love and appreciation! Their love has stood and endured the test of time… I’m so glad that one of them is MINE! By Jim Pemberton

My Micke boys

                To be called ..
            ~   Grandma is a Honor ~

        I have been blessed with 4  Grandchildren

       ~ one lays in Heaven " Kaleb "  He is God's Angel ~
   ~ His twin brother he will always watch over , and be in his soul~

     For he loved his Brother so much in the womb ,
       he chose Heaven which gave life to his twin
      ~ I feel his spirit when I see the other Grandson ~
 
              Time passed another gift to see
               we are " Mickes" and Loved 
            Our Dad held the title in Baseball 
                   ~  that's how we roll ~
           those children are Grandmas hero's 

       The Irish they love big and Family is everything 
        The brothers will protect the beautiful sister 
              ~ as many lads will be calling ~

        Every time my Grandson hits a home run
     There will be a Angel watching proudly in the stand 

       It will be as if the Angel lifted him when he runs 
           ~no one runs faster then my Grandson~
     either baseball or Art  ~ you shall find your gift given

                These children have been blessed~
                 ~  a beauty to hard to describe 
        If you think not ~~  Take a look at the Mom  
                     That girl can stop Traffic   
                    after raising three and still~ 

          "Inspired by the gift and loss of Grandchildren "

     May our precious " Kaleb " softly rest where Angels only Dwell

Heritage of Faith


The apostles entrusted the “Sacred deposit” of the faith
Contained in Sacred scripture and Tradition
To the whole Church
By adhering to this heritage
The entire holy people
United to its pastors
Remains always faithful to the teaching of the apostles
The brotherhood
To the breaking of bread
Prayers
So, in maintaining
Practicing
Professing the faith that has been handed on
There should be a remarkable harmony between the bishops

The Family That God Gave to Me

The Family That God Gave to Me I think about the family, that God gave to me... And think about where they'll spend eternity! I think about the good times, that we've had. And the trials we've faced... Both good and bad! God helped us to overcome adversity together! And proved his faithfulness... Today and forever! He showed us the Godly path, that we should follow... And promised to be with us! Today and tomorrow! He's proven how much he loves us! And how much that he cares for us! Thank you my lord, for all you do! Where would we be? If not for you? You've proven yourself over and over again! Thank you so much, for being our friend! By Jim Pemberton

Unity of the Old and New Testaments

As an old saying put it
The New Testament lies hidden in the Old
The Old Testament is unveiled in the New
