I saw my savior on the cross

Dying there to save the lost.

Tears of love flowed from His eyes

A love so amazing, you’d be surprised.


But some would turn away from Him

And listen to the devil’s lies

Some would laugh and mock and sneer

And when He called they could not hear.


Forgiveness flowed with love and tears

I remember what He did for me

He's in control of all my life

He has been there from the start

And whatever this day holds

God’s Gift of Love

God sent us His gift of love

Wrapped up in a baby small

His Holy Spirit fills us

Autumn Leaves

Stately autumn trees

Dressed in brightly colored leaves

Line the highway as we go

Giving us an awesome show.

Red and yellow, orange and green

Blend to form the autumn scene.

All along the mountains high

The colors seem to touch the sky.

Brightly colored autumn leaves

Dancing gaily in the breeze

As they softly flutter by

Like a colore...
