    Jesus in my past l got on my knees crying out to thee in a harsh trial. I felt you so strong next to me, l wrote a song ON MY KNEES. I caught a glimpse of you and your white robe. How caring you were with me. I wrote that song of how l felt, when you were there. It later became a Blessing to many homeless and hurting people. I brought in two other strangers God sent me. Helped many. Am BLESSED!!
