the door like a maniac?"

Never beyond Your reach

Rich loved  Sunflowers

Snapshot from the video "Pursuit of a Legacy"

Ongeveer de laatste foto in laatste officiële foto shoot, Ierland. (Ben Pearson)

Rich als een pijl die naar Boven wijst

Sometimes I think of Abraham 
How one star he saw had been lit for me 
He was a stranger in this land 
And I am that, no less than he 
And on this road to righteousness 
Sometimes the climb can be so steep 
I may falter in my steps 
But never beyond Your reach 

And when my body lies in the ruins
Of the lies that nearly runied me
Will You pick up the pieces
That were pure and true
And breathe Your life into them
And set them free?

And when You blast this cosmos

To kingdom come
When those jagged-edged mountains
I love are gone
When the sky is crossed with the tears
Of a thousand falling suns
As they crash into the sea
Can I be with you?

Can I be with You

He watches down the road

And our Father still waits and He watches down the road

Kind words

"Kind words don't cost much. Yet they accomplish much."

Minds set on earthly things

"Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame,
with minds set on earthly things."
