"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!

"A Brand New Day"

From this day on until eternity
His love for you will never cease
And should the earth return to dust
His words you can forever trust
Should the oceans loose it's tide
and all it's life completely die
I know the God who made it all
will once again restore it's fall
Our God above has set the times
for what we see to live or die
He knows the sparrows every flight
and will restore the darkest night
He set the stars in heavens crown
and placed the planets to surround
Then fixed the earth to stand in space
for man to manage and have his place
One day this earth will pass away
for God will make a brand new day
On that new day he'll complete his plan
to restore creation as it once began
A sinless world where Jesus light
will fill it's city both day and night
Where angels sing the endless praise
for Heavens Lamb, who's life was slain
A new Jerusalem where rivers flow
and saints will tread on streets of gold
Thru gates of pearl Christ takes his bride
to dwell in peace in Heavens Light!
