Frisco

I’m riding out to Frisco, saddle up my pony

There’s a girl that I know, says that I’m the only

Loving, bona fide man, she has in her life

And I plan, on making that girl my wife

So I am riding out to Frisco,

I’ve got a diamond to give

Riding out to Frisco

I know exactly where she lives

I’m riding out to Frisco, saddle up my pony

There’s a girl that I know, says that I’m the only

Loving, bona fide man, she has in her life

And I plan, on making that girl my wife

On the road beside me, many cars speed by

Some slow and look me, as if to ask me why

You see me on my horse, wonder why I didn’t drive

I continue on my course, this is how a knight arrives

So I am riding out to Frisco,

I’ve got a diamond to give

Riding out to Frisco

I know exactly where she lives

Her driveway in Frisco, she runs out to me

I think that she knows, before I even hit my knee

A crowd gathers around, my love I confess

Cheerful joy abounds, when she answers yes

I’m riding out of Frisco, with her on my pony

This girl that I know, swears that I’m the only

Loving, bona fide man, she has in her life

I followed my plan, I’m gonna make her my wife

In His Image

Made In His Image in the image of God we are made.

Strayed, Serpent deception, partook of what God forbade.

Then separated, sin had invaded, corrupting what had been made

The enemy laughs, like an old photograph, the image starts to fade

In His Image, created

But the image has faded

All that awaits is the grave

We are hopelessly lost

And death is the cost

Tell me who is able to save

Adam and Eve, were just like you and me

Decieved, were tempted and decieved

With open eyes, they lost paradise from the garden they did leave

Burdened labor of the earth, labor of childbirth, given to all humanity

In His Image Created,

But that image has faded

All that awaits is the grave

We are hopelessly lost

And death is the cost

Is anyone able to save

Crucified, Our redeemer crucified

It was for our redemption he died

In the tomb he was laid, but he was raised, and sit at the father’s side

Victory, belongs to those who believe

In The Lord Jesus I do abide

In His image created

But the image has faded

There only one name who can saved

I was hopelessly lost

But He paid the cost

And he overcame the grave

Made in his image, in the image of God we were made.

Not of my hands, by his blood, the debt was paid

Rock Painting

I have developed a random hobby. I like to pick up rocks, bring them home and paint them. I then leave them places to be found, or leave them laying around the house. Someone asked me “how do you do that?” Well,…I will demonstrate.

Step 1

Find a rock that is smooth enough to paint, and flat enough to sit on a table.

Step 2

Paint a horizontal line across the face of the rock. Don’t be overly technical, this will serve as a reference point for your landscape.

Step 3

Fill in the bottom half with broad strokes. I usually start out with black or white. Depending on the scene, or my mood, sometimes I paint the entire rock at this point.

Step 4

Determine the location of a light source. I usually place on the higher side of the rock, near the top. The light source is usually the sun or moon (I’m not sure which this will be yet)

Step 5

Add a little yellow to highlight the white moon/sun

Step 6

And some clouds.

Step 7

Sketch out a cabin or house. You could also do a large tree, or pretty much anything. It will look bad at first, like my little stick figure cabin.

Step 8

Now you can add some color and definition to the cabin. Pull the paint on the front and side of the cabin at an angle, so that the angles meet at the corner of the cabin.

Line the top of the roof with white paint, then use a dry brush to pull the paint down at the angle of a roof.

Don’t attempt to add lots of detail. You want give the illusion of detail. The breaking of paint across roofs, or rocks, gives the illusion of depth.

Step whatever

Now zoom out to figure out where your cabin fits in to the scene.

I added some blue, think about a water scene.

Step

I added some more blue to the “water” and added black to created a contrast and the illusion of a rocky shore.

But I may have warned, I don’t really plan these things out.

Step

The water idea, didn’t seem to be working. If your idea doesn’t work out, just adjust and move on. I added bright white in front of the cabin, and swiped across the rock. Now we have a snow scene and the blue actually adds the illusion of depth.

Oh yeah, in my adventure, the cabin expanded and grew a steeple. So now it is a church.

It still isn’t quite done, for there are issues with lighting. But to continue would do more harm than good.

Tomorrow, with fresh eyes, I will add the finishing touches.

Hope this was helpful, goodnight.

Step Wake up and try again.

I added some detail, but the first thing I did was to return to the location of the black line we painted in step 2. That became the fence line in the distance, I then added the front fence, and now I am done.

You will never have perfection, so know when enough is enough.

Goodbye again.

My Fire-Crossed Heart

I give you my fire crossed heart

I have loved you from the start

You came near me and I knew

I would spend my life with you

Our friends warned it was too soon

But I was Johnny, you were June

I fell for you, and you for me

Consumed by perfect harmony

I give you my fire crossed heart

I have loved you from the start

You came near me and I knew

I would spend my life with you

Some threw stones at our sin

Not thinking that love would win

You had a boyfriend but I knew

Nothing could keep me from you

I give you my fire crossed heart

I have loved you from the start

You came near me and I knew

I would spend my life with you

We celebrate another year

Funny how God led us here

How beautiful you are

You have my fire-crossed heart

Cultural Stereotypes

Tell me something about your culture, your race, or ethnicity. What is the ONE thing, you want people to know about your heritage? Is there a stereotype that is accurate? Is there a stereotype that is so incorrect it makes you laugh…or angers you?

What do you wish people would see when they look at you?

 

Death Death War

Two people found dead

up near the county line

No details, they said

Not at this time

Death, death, war

Listen to the news today

but there’s more

Are the skies are always gray

It’s all bad news

What do I listen for

Allegations of abuse

And more death, death, war

Chemical attack

killed kids on the street

Your privacy hacked

By a securuty breech

Death, death, war

Listen to the news today

but there’s more

Are the skies are always gray

It’s all bad news

What do I listen for

Allegations of abuse

And more death, death, war

The sun will rise

On a brand new day

A politician lies

And a storm in on the way

Death, death, war

Listen to the news today

but there’s more

Are the skies are always gray

It’s all bad news

What do I listen for

Allegations of abuse

And more death, death, war

Gravity

Evidence of our depravity

Pull us down like gravity

Pulling us to our graves

Our blood, the ground craves

One is born to die

Birds are made to fly

Drift to the other side

In death do abide

Have I lost my sanity

All of this humanity

What is really lost?

How high is the cost?

As evident as gravity

A bitter animosity

Bodies break and bleed

To water hatred’s seed

Tears fall as we do

The state of me and you

Held captive by chains

More struggle more pain

Evidence of our depravity

Pull us down like gravity

Ever closer to our fate

God, is it now too late?

From Fire to Faith

From sleep I awoken

From dream to unreal

A sudden commotion

And coldness like steel

A night interrupted

A shock to my soul

The fire that erupted

Was out of control

From fire to faith

From darkness to dawn

The Lord Sayeth

‘I am the One’

Jesus I hear you

Will you save this man?

God, I am ready

To follow your plan

From darkness to light

Though surrounded by flame

Through the smoke I might

Get past guilt and shame

Down on my knees

Where the ashes lie

With the Prince of peace

One day I will rise

From fire to faith

From darkness to dawn

The Lord Sayeth

‘I am the One’

Jesus I hear you

Will you save this man?

God, I am ready

To follow your plan

Promises left unspoken

Living together in lonliness

Blackened windows are broken

Light floods into the darkness

Our hearts, once like stone

Now are made of flesh

A love I thought was gone

Is made new and feels fresh

From fire to faith

From darkness to dawn

The Lord Sayeth

‘I am the One’

Jesus I hear you

Will you save this man?

God, I am ready

To follow your plan
