VISTAS: An awareness of a range of time, events, or subjects. A broad Mental View.

America the Beautiful,
or so you used to be.
Land of the Pilgrims' pride;
I'm glad they'll never see.

Babies piled in dumpsters,
Abortion on demand,
Oh, sweet land of liberty;
your house is on the sand.

Our children wander aimlessly
poisoned by cocaine,
Choosing to indulge their lusts,
when God has said abstain.

From sea to shining sea,
our Nation turns away
From the teaching of God's love
and a need to always pray.

We've kept God in our temples,
how callous we have grown.
When earth is but His footstool,
and Heaven is His throne.

We've voted in a government
that's rotting at the core,
Appointing Godless Judges
who throw reason out the door,

Too soft to place a killer
in a well deserved tomb,
But brave enough to kill a baby
before he leaves the womb.

You think that God's not angry,
that our land's a moral slum?
How much longer will He wait
before His judgment comes?

How are we to face our God,
from Whom we cannot hide?
What then is left for us to do,
but stem this evil tide?

If we who are His children,
will humbly turn and pray;
Seek His holy face
and mend our evil way:

Then God will hear from Heaven
and forgive us of our sins,
He'll heal our sickly land
and those who live within.

But, America the Beautiful,
if you don't - then you will see,
A sad but Holy God
withdraw His hand from Thee.
~ Judge Roy Moore ~

"There is a sense of exhilaration that comes from facing head-on the hard truths and saying, 'We will never give up. We will never capitulate. It might take a long time, but we will find a way to prevail.'"
- Jim Collins -

"Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart."

I wonder why so many people don't realize the value of Love
they can place value on things they can buy
they can place value on things they can give
but so few place the highest value on what is most important
and that is unwavering love

2002

when the wind blows toward the shores
it carries my love and my tears

2001

little to say
words fail to come
silence is the norm

2000

Yesterday interferes with today
a missing touch
no good-bye kisses
a warm bed gone cold
no good morning hugs
Yes yesterday interferes with today

A Thought to Ponder

Why don't people sign guest books? Is it because of the time it takes? or is it something more? Did they not appreciate the pages they viewed, or did they become lost within the site? Do they want to remain hidden, silently coming in and leaving without a word? Guest books are an excellent way to promote their sites, so why don't more sign?

My Thought to Ponder

1998

The screaming began again
the feelings it evokes hurts so bad

I don't want to fail
but yet I do

I want to be what they need
but yet I can't

I want to please
but yet I don't

If I could run away and hide
forget this side

Lose myself to the unknown
until I'm shown

Forgiveness never comes
but tomorrow always does

A ship in port is safe, but that's not what ships are built for.
