Got a good reason For taking the easy way out


...on the wings of a dove



On the wings of a snow-white dove



He sends His pure sweet love
A sign from above
On the wings of a dove


When troubles surround us, when evils come
The body grows weak
The spirit grows numb
When these things beset us, He doesn't forget us
He sends down His love
On the wings of a dove ....








Charlie Pride singing "On the Wings of a Snow White Dove"...found HERE
lyrics found HERE
PHOTO CREDITS: 1st and 3rd dove images are from Port Aransas Texas...the middle one [the 2nd one] is from our backyard...posted before.

  3. Great shots of the doves Anni, they always seem so peaceful except when they decide to coo and chatter right outside our bedroom window on Saturday mornings. LOL! I do remember that song, it was my grandmother's favorite.
