MATERIAL THINGS DON'T MATTER

MY UPCOMING BOOK RELEASE


My website is about my books that have just been released

 

 

 

 

Welcome to Material Things Don't Matter, The books are now out of print. Going to try and make them free so everyone can enjoy them.

My name is Saundra McFarland. I have written a book of christian poems and would like to share them with everyone.. I have been so greatly blessed by the Dear Lord in heaven. He has bestowed so many blessings on my family. I lost my mom Grace Wilma Hamby , and I began writing poems as a way of keeping busy. The Lord had a plan for these poems and He helped me see how He wanted things to go. He helped me realize His plans by our church family, they kept encouraging me to have them published. I want to thank Publish America for giving me a chance to have my dream come true.

 Most of all I want to give all the praise and the glory to God in heaven for giving me the talent to write poems and for saving my soul. Here is one of my poems it is  one that is in the book It is a poem about  Mom's New Home, if your mom is living cherish that love because one day God could call her home believe me I miss mine greatly but she is in a much better place.

 I want to thank you our Father in Heaven for making all this possible.  

 May God bless everyone greatly.

 

THE INVITATION

Dear Lord, I heard You calling

But I kept standing in the pew stalling

I heard you say come to Me, You were pleading

Your invitation I heard and it was what I needed

But still I kept standing It was like I couldnít get my feet to go on down

The aisle

I kept on standing and waiting, and the invitation ended after awhile

Dear Lord the next service I heard You call a little louder

Your voice was all I could hear nothing else mattered

But still Lord, I couldnít make my feet move at all

Even though I could still hear You call

The invitation ended I went home

I had never felt so empty and alone

The next service I heard You calling and I saw the tears You had wept for me

Because You sent me a message this could be, the last time You would be calling for me

I stood in the pew, I was nervous, my hands were sweating, and my heart was beating fast

But Lord I went running I couldnít refuse Your calling and pleading because it might be my last

I went to the altar You opened Your arms

I knew I was safe from Satanís harms

I fell to my knees and begin to cry

I finally realized why Jesus had to die

To save a sinner like me but He arose and went to His throne

To knock at my door so I could receive my heavenly home

So if you hear Jesus pleading and donít answer the call

Remember his answer one day will be I never knew you at all

 

The Gift Of Love

What does Christmas truly mean to you?
Is it the gifts you receive? Or the good deeds you can do?

Does Christmas mean finding the perfect present for family and friends?
Going from store to store, where the shopping never ends?

The true meaning of Christmas, is celebrating the greatest gift given to us all
That God sent Jesus, He was the only answer to every sinner's call

Let us make Christmas a time of giving
To tell the lost that Jesus is still living

That He gave His life because of His love for us
Spread the news of Jesus and His love, so in Him others will place their trust

When I think of Christmas Jesus is all I think of
Jesus came and gave the greatest gift of love

So instead of wanting to receive, let us think about what we can give
By telling others of Jesus, and His love as long as we live

We need to share the glorious story of Jesus' sacrafice
When sinner's accept Him, they will be thankful for your advice

So spread the news of God's gift of love
So many will accept Jesus and secure their home above

 

JESUS ON THE CROSS

I Will Pray For You

 

I will pray for you

No matter what you are going through

I will pray for you, that God can make everything well

I will pray for you and your problems in life to Jesus I will tell

I will pray for you when you have lost your way

I'll say a prayer for you throughout the day

I will pray for you when you are depressed

I will pray for you when Satan is putting you to the test

 

I will pray for you when you feel like giving up, and you want to quit

I will pray for you that strength from God is what you get

I'll pray for you when you are suffering from guilt

I'll pray for you that a wall of courage for you be built

I'll pray for you and ask you to pray for me

and together the end of the rainbow, we both shall see

I will pray for you to find peace

and pray you be protected from satan's theives

I will pray that if your world be shaken

That your belief in Jesus won't be forsaken

I will pray you keep Jesus the center of your life

Jesus can heal any wound even if it is caused by and enemies knife

 

 

 

MOM'S NEW HOME

MOM WE HAVE MISSED YOU SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE

I DON'T DWELL ON MISSING YOU I FOCUS ON YOUR NEW HOME

I TRY TO IMAGINE THE BEAUTY OF HEAVEN AND ALL IT'S SLENDOR

THE SINGING OF THE ANGELS THEIR VOICE SO TENDER

I IMAGINE YOU STROLLING DOWN THE STREETS OF GOLD

OH THE BEAUTY OF HEAVEN THE PEARLY GATES AND WE WILL NEVER GROW OLD

I CAN IMAGINE THE GOLD HOW EVERYTHING MUST SHINE

MOM I KNOW YOUR NEW HOME IS SO DIVINE

THE ONE THING I FOCUS ON AND TRY TO SEE THE MOST

IS THE MOMENT THAT YOU SEEN HEAVEN'S HOST

TO LOOK UPON JESUS' FACE TO BOW DOWN BEFORE THE LAMB

I CAN HEAR YOU SAY I LOVE YOU JESUS HERE I AM

I CAN ALMOST HEAR IN PERFECT DETAIL HOW THAT JESUS IS THE LIGHT AND THAT LIGHT CASTS MANY BEAMS

I CAN SEE YOU WALKING ON HEAVEN'S SHORES BY THE CRYSTAL CLEAR STREAMS

I CAN IMAGINE YOU HAVING COMPLETE REST

THANKING JESUS BECAUSE YOU HAVE SO BLESSED

SO MY FOCUS IS ON HEAVEN'S SHORE FOR WHICH I WILL PREPARE

AND CONCENTRATE ON THE DAY I WILL MEET YOU THERE







 

Material Things Don't Matter

Material things can be taken away

The love of Jesus is here to stay

Don't dwell on earthly things

Like fur coats and diamond rings

Don't focus on a big fancy home

One day it may seem so big and empty,and make you feel alone

Don't worry about how to make a lot of money to put in a bank account

Think about how great Jesus' preaching, was like the sermon on the mount

Don't worry about what kind of car you drive, just be thankful it takes us to where we need to go

Thank God in Heaven,He has provided transportation, and pray for Him to lead us, and in His love we can grow

Material things can fade away

So all of us as God's children,don't need to let material things lead us astray

There are no material things that can compare with God's love

All the material things we have, are blessings from God above

God has provided our every single need, they are called blessings

Everything I have has come from God, that is my confession

Not of my works, it is by the Master's hand

He loves me and has blessed me, that is easy to understand

To God I will give the honor, praise, and glory

And tell everyone about Jesus, oh what a beautiful story

 

God is Real

Dear God in Heaven, what is this world coming to?

There are so many who do not believe in you

There are many, who say you are not real

But they are wrong, because I know you are always near

Dear God in Heaven, have mercy on our nation

I pray that those who do not believe in you, will find salvation

They are taking the name of God out of everything they can

And say they are protecting the rights of man

They'll try to deceive us with their reason, on why God should be taken out of schools, documents, our prayers not spoke in public anymore

Well these are my rights, and they are worth fighting for

I plan on fighting for my beliefs

I won't let them be taken away by Satan's thieves

Let me tell the story of Jesus' love, how He came suffered, and died, and arose on the third day

So if you stand on the rock, which is Jesus and believe then eternal life you shall receive

Just let me say Jesus is my final answer today, tomorrow, and always

No matter what the problem, Jesus is my final answer everyday

 

 

 

 

Mom's Homecoming in Heaven

Mom it's been two years since you went home
To see Jesus and sit around His throne

Our hearts were truly broken when we got the call
We reminded ourselves, God knows what is best for all

You were struggling to breathe, you done your best
God seen you suffering, He knew you needed rest

God needed a rose full of Grace
Then a smile came to His face

That day He picked a beautiful flower
He ended all your suffering in that hour

The holidays were hard to get through
All I could think of was missing you

Then I realized that you were with Jesus
To be sad and gloomy there was no reason

Because for you this was a great beginning
To a life with Jesus that has no ending

No more tears,suffering, or pain
You're arrival in Heaven was your gain

To sit and talk with Jesus all the day long
And hear the choir sing beautiful songs

We have the promise that we will see you again
Because of Jesus, our Savior and best friend

So until we meet again on Heaven's shores
I won't be sad for you are happy forever more

In memory of my mom Grace Hamby. Oct. 16, 2004
