May the Lord continue to bless and preserve you.
These are my original compositions. I wrote the words, music and MIDI sequences. I have never thought of myself as a great singer but many people have told me they enjoy my vocal work. So I have given you a choice. For those with a broadband connection (and a strong stomach), you can click on the "Vocals" links and listen to me singing. For those with a dial-up connection, I recommend the "MIDI" links. Since they are MIDI files, they will load much faster than the MP3 files. But unless your computer has a really good sound card, they will sound like they are coming out of a really CHEAP radio. What can I say-nothing is perfect.
Loaves and Fishes

Smiling Through the Rain
The story of a brave woman who survived an unplanned pregnancy and an abusive marriage, but never lost hope or her belief in herself.

The Spirit's Willing

The Gates of Heaven
