"Welcome To My Blog"

Today is June 7, 2015, so much has happened in the years since my last update here. On February 28,2014 I suffered a Heart Attack. Probably one of scariest events of my life but deeply grateful that the Lord has spared me. So because of Him I am here today and able to give Him praise. We are enjoying the warm months of summer here in Georgia as we watch the spring like weather fade. I hope all are enjoying the blessings of our great God!

"Freed By His Grace"

Freed by His grace to stand before Holy,
delivered from sin to worship Him soley.
Quickened from death, to live as I should,
He payed my sin debt because I never could.
God in His mercy, lead me to repentance,
granting my pardon, in forms of deliverance.
From a life plagued by sin, filled with delusions,
seized from hells tortures and empty seclusions.
Freed by His grace to dance in His prescence,
filled with His Spirit to bask in the fragrance.
Of the One who was chosen in eternities past,
To stand in my place before I ever asked.
Never in time has there been so much love,
displayed by One who'd come down from above.
To ransome men's souls from the judgements to come,
on a world set in darkness, by deeds that it's done.
Freed by His grace to stand before Holy,
set free from my sins to worship Him soley.
Sealed by His Spirit for eternities offing,
as we wait here below to hear Jesus is coming!
