“We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. (Isaiah 53:6) (NIV)

    The poem below was written the day after Democrat Candidate Obama was selected for President, 2008. I pray the outcome for 2012 will be very different.


The people have spoken.

It’s all very clear.

The liberals have won

Yet left some in fear


For it’s not good luck

Nor a twist of fate

That ignorance spoke

And men took the bait.


They said what they meant.

You do what they say.

But here’s a hard fact.

Truth won’t go away.


From mountains to plains

To oceans in view

God’s nation once red

Today has turned blue
