I was on a roll this morning with my daily poem… I must admit I am impressed how well it turned out How big is my love?  It is…. Immeasurable My love is immeasurable Like if I tried to count exactly how many grains of sand Were on Accra Beach at 1 in the morning … Continue reading

“Call Me For Prayer…”
