What a fascinating person God is!
Worthy of all honor, all glory, all praise.

A PLACE OF SERENITY

Your spirit resides deep within me Lord A place many others might never know A place I will not share with anyone else A shelter where each day my spirit can go It’s here we share moments together Where I can always truly be myself For Lord, you alone have created me Blessing me with…
