Pearls of Great Price

This a collection of songs, (Section 1) dramas (Section 2) and poems/prose (Section 3)

inspired by the Parables that Jesus told.

They were nearly all written in January and February of this year 2014.

My gratitude to my son Stephen

for his help with computer technology,

and to my husband Bob,

who helps me produce each video.

Thanks also to Andrew Ridgewick for producing my CD.

and also to Harry Lisgo, for contributing to the 'art collection'

What would I do without them all? Sheila
