EXCITING News!  Murder in Galveston has just been released as an audio book.  Grab a copy for those nights when your eyes are too tired to read after being on the computer all day or those boring commutes.

He Is There

Dad provides the worldly needs

Sits silently aside

Stalwart in his outward pose

Fights demons of his own


Leader of the family

Advisor, loving man

Mentor, coach, defender waits

To mend a broken heart


Wiping tears, encouraging

His child’s growth support

Proud of the accomplishments

Arms out to catch the falls


Father in the sense that’s true

Means more than DNA

Dance recitals, soccer games

Wherever, he is there!

Best Job

Applicant, female must

Multitask, organize

Care for sick, discipline

Volunteer, educate

Buy the food, cook it right

Clean the house, wash the clothes

Taxi drive, navigate

Cheer at games, concerts, plays,

Photograph, entertain

Comfort, soothe broken hearts

Give advice, love, support

Pay is none, no time off

Training nil, guess and learn

Life transformed evermore

Best career, title Mom

P1020537 (2).jpgBelieve, for He is there

To light your path through darkest days

And lift you onto Angels’ wings

To soar above the clouds.


Creation bursts, new life

Each Spring to coat the Earth with green

Varieties of animals

Know love is in the air


Rejoice! Renew! Give Thanks!

As magical events unfold

Have faith, in awe of mystery

Believe, His hand is there!

Thank you for the motivation

To craft another day

Drawing life with inspiration

Bright colors fill the page


Dreams are magical creations

Be grateful for the thoughts

Journey’s yours from incarnation

Unique as snowflakes fall.
