Will your nerves be able to stand the strain
When you hear tormented souls cry in pain,
Knocks on the door and the rattle of chains
Will all this play havoc with your brains.

The darkness serves as a cloak of fear
You jump at the slightest noise you hear,
What was that light that went by so fast
Could it be a ghost from the past.

You hear feet approaching your front door
Rigid with fear and frozen to the core
You wonder who it could be knocking so loud
Maybe it`s a ghost wrapped in its shroud.

Lock your doors dim your light
For trouble is afoot tonight,
The demons roam in many forms
Their evil acts to perform.

If you hear a rap on the door
It will be them that`s for sure,
A skeleton a ghost will be there
Waiting to sample your fayre.

`Trick or Treat` is what they`ll say
If you choose trick, you will pay
So be nice and they will be kind
No devastation they`ll leave behind.

A flickering light for you to see

It`s Halloween folks

Ready to play trick or treat?

Mind the ghosts and ghouls.

Love Not the World But Jesus

NO matter what you love the most about this world we shouldn´t love the world but Jesus only.
As you know the world cannot vindicate person of their wrongdoings but Jesus can and does.
It is not left up to the world of who is right or wrong but Jesus.
There is a true relationship we have with the Lord Jesus and while we do there is the world that is left outside.
Let us be prudent and wise to the world and also of Jesus.
You can have more blessings believing Jesus than you can the world.
Be astute and firm with your commitment to serve the Lord.
Make every effort

Treasured Times With Lyle B.

There were times I felt so closed off from others.
I thought there would never be a chance for me to really live.
Then the time came for me to meet with Lyle and his lifetime partner.
The two came down to NC to be with my dad and myself.
Of all the treasured times, on this earth for me, being together was the best.
There was an emanating love of friendship and kinship that I had not known before.
When it came time for them to depart from us I had given Lyle a kiss and told him I loved him as he told me the same thing.
These were the precious moments of a time for us i

Ronnie Is the Epitome of Someone Most Special

I have the real privilege of knowing this great man.
There is a love that is deeply rooted within him.
I feel the love as it is shared and freely given.
Ronnie is the epitome of someone most special for he has a love that will not end.
He reaches out to me with so many things that he wishes to convey.
I feel elated and overjoyed to know this great man and have his love freely given.
May you come to know him yourself by meeting him one day and finding for yourself the love that emanates from within to touch you.
His love is freely given and never bought nor sold ev
