Just finished Looking to the Lord and The Battle (of opposing thoughts) on player to the right.  Now working on another new old stock original gospel song "Come Let Me Tell You" I found on an old demo cassette.  I'm planning on two others after that to make a complete new gospel album.  Not sure what the other two songs will be but I know something will come to me.  drh 1/15/19

"If you want to see the world’s climate changing, fly over a tropical country. Thirty years ago, a wide belt of rainforest circled the earth, covering much of Latin America, south-east Asia and Africa. Today, it is being rapidly replaced by great swathes of palm oil trees and rubber plantations, land cleared for cattle grazing, soya farming, expanding cities, dams and logging."    The Guardian  Feb. 2018

"We are destroying rainforests so quickly they may be gone in 100 years"     John Vidal  the Guardian's environment editor

The Forests and the Rain Forests are being devastated by Man and by Fire.   (Thought you should know)   Hear the song THE UNBORN TREES in the player above and join the movement to SAVE OUR FORESTS.
