Boots on the Ground




There’s a tension in the air,

but unbeliever’s cannot tell,

that  what’s coming can’t compare

to movie scenes of Hell.


They need to know your Savior,

before it is too late.

They need repentant behavior,

they don’t understand their fate.


We need boots on the ground,

we’re at  war, that’s a fact.

While they indulge their carnal man

the demons plan attacks.


That Satan, he draws down on them

and takes them one by one.

They often never see it coming,

’till all the damage has been done.


We need boots on the ground,

as darkness closes in,

it  strikes hard, without a sound,

through ignorance and love of sin.


Those of the world, they fail to see

they’re in the line of fire.

There’s no such thing as purgatory,

theirs souls Satan will acquire.


May God place on us a burden,

such that we can feel the weight

of His desire for every soul,

through Jesus, triumph over hate.


No matter if you’re short or tall,

I hope you realize:

There is a Holy Army,

and “God’s got boots your size”.

The Pledge of Allegiance (a paraphrase)

God Bless America, Land That I Love...

God Bless America, Land That I Love…

To the flag of the United States of America,

I pledge my allegiance.

To the Republic, for which it stands,
I pledge my allegiance.

We are one Nation.

Under God, we are Indivisible.
Under God, we have Liberty.
Under God, we have Justice for all.

(can I get an Amen…)

Case for Christ


“”Case For Christ” follows reporter Lee Strobel as he interviews a number of religious and historical scholars in order to find out if there is any proof of the resurrection, and to discover the historical veracity of the New Testament.” (

This is well done. Beyond my expectations, and I don’t say that often. Enjoy!


Case for Christ


notice of posting -

Just a note to let you know of a poem I posted on my other blog, “thoughtboarding”. It is titled,Reading Your Mind, and addresses the frustration we can all sometimes experience in our communications with one another.  :)
(It’s been sitting, finished in a folder since late last year. Here’s to one more loose end being taken care of.  ;) )

Through Your Eyes



May Truth rise up

above the din,

and take its rightful place,


above the clamor 

and the strife 

that wears ol’ Evil’s face.


Help us discern

what is Your Truth

when voices start to rise.


In spirit, Father,

help us see

this matter

through Your Eyes.

The Greatest Rebellion…

“The greatest rebellion
we will ever be called upon to put down
……. is our own.” Beth A. Viera
