I Wish – Art Print

I Wish – Art Print by Joseph James (Hartmann) – Finally, after several years of creating some art prints for some of my poems, we now have them available in 12×18 inch prints. Each print is printed on high quality metallic paper called Ice Gold Metallic with an 80# text weight. It is stunning and brilliant as the light touches the metal flakes and colors and makes them sparkle. This print is titled, “I Wish” and was written as I looked back over my past and then all of the experiences and changes that were necessary to help mold me into the person I am today. I Wish!

I Wish - Art Print by Joseph James (Hartmann)

I Wish – Art Print Text:

  • I wish I could have grown up in the perfect family,
  • With a mother and father who love me so dearly,
  • With brothers and sisters who play instead of fight,
  • With each day a joyous adventure and peace through the night.
  • I wish I could have grown up in a world full of love,
  • One without wars, sin, grief, murder or strife,
  • Where it’s safe to walk the streets and live in homes without locks,
  • Where everyone is full of love and each one like a friend.
  • This would be perfect, and then it would never end,
  • But in my world, a dream is all this will ever be,
  • Each one does his best just trying to make it through,
  • Yet, this one has the potential to be the greater of the two.
  • It’s in these places, we find out if true love exists,
  • Without mercy and forgiveness, it’s only shallow at best.
  • How can we know its depths if it’s never tested and tried?
  • It only shines and glows when, by the storm, it’s purified.
  • I thought there were many who loved me or so they did say,
  • But when the storms came, they ran off and went away.
  • “Where are you? I thought you were my friend.”
  • But they were all gone when I had looked again.
  • “Where did you come from, I didn’t know you were there?
  • I thought I knew everyone, but what is your name?”
  • “I am the Lord, and I’ve always been near,
  • I’ve never left you, you are precious and dear.”
  • My tears fell like rain as I ran to embrace,
  • His love surrounded me and His peace and grace.
  • He is all I need, we’re together each day,
  • He healed all my wounds, in His presence I’ll stay.
  • Now, I have new friends and I know them by name,
  • I know their limits and failures and I love them the same.
  • Humans are fragile and weak at their best,
  • But Jesus is perfect and His love passes the test.

Janiece and I travel and minister to individuals and groups as doors open for us to go. We are starting a new thing this year. We will be going to communities, as the Lord leads, and booking hotel meeting rooms to do concerts. We will invite those from the hotel as well as the community. We will connect to other churches and organizations in those communities to help those who desperately need help, and who, perhaps won't come into a church building. We share His love to those who haven’t heard of their Father’s love for them and also minister in song. We’ve both been through a lot and have been healed and restored and that we have to pass on to others. We can speak through truth and experience because we’ve been there. If you would like to book us for a concert, event, speaking and/or ministry meeting, please use our CONTACT page. We hope we have helped to encourage you to go on and find the wonderful destiny God has planned for you. Psalm 139. Fly higher…

SDDL Website

I am presently converting “Sentenced To Death, Destined For Life” into a movie and have just finished publishing the 3rd book in the sequel to “Islands In The Sea”, titled “Illegitimate?” It is now available in the trilogy on this site through Amazon. We finished filming and producing the JOURNEY TO HOPE! 7 DVD Series with Janiece Turner-Hartmann and they are on YouTube for those who need help and encouragement. We are planning to take some time out to record some more music and then start touring early this year, 2017. Hope to see you on the road.
