My Rose Art Print

My Rose – 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, “My Rose” and was written as the Lord shared with me about my future wife, Janiece. She had been through so many things, but He was restoring her back to life. My Rose

My Rose Art Print by Joseph James (Hartmann) 

My Rose – Text

  • There was once a rosebush all beaten and rent,
  • If one were to see it, they’d consider its life spent;
  • But along came a man one day, He reached down from above,
  • He carried it home with Him and showered it with love.
  • He placed it in some fertile soil, in His shelter all secure,
  • He gently clipped the broken parts and allowed them to cure;
  • The plant had seen much trauma, but His love would bring it through,
  • And then the time to transplant it, in the center of His garden view.
  • The little plant was honored, it didn’t know what to think,
  • And the many fears that held it back, even they began to sink;
  • The little plant, in the Master’s plan, was proud to be a part,
  • To bring Him glory and honor was the cry of its heart.
  • The growing, it seemed slow at first, as the new shoots appeared,
  • The new life so tender, yet its protection secure;
  • Finally, a bud appeared, came the time to unfold,
  • The little plant was all afraid and anything but bold.
  • To succumb to its fearfulness would cause the flow’r to fall,
  • To expose itself again to pain brought back the tears and all;
  • Then it felt the Master’s hand and heard His gentle song,
  • He urged it just to bloom again and to know He was along.
  • As the petals started opening, a hush just filled the place,
  • To those staring in amazement at the plant that was defaced;
  • The one that seemed ‘could never be,’ was now the Master’s choice,
  • His glory, He has shown us in the power of His voice.
  • So, open up you plants of His and let your fragrance air,
  • Let the beauty that’s been hidden be seen everywhere;
  • God is not a mean old man, nor one that He should lie,
  • But now, He’s here among us and on Him we can rely.
  • The Master, He sees everything, nothing’s hidden from His view,
  • As He died upon the cross, He was looking right at you;
  • He’s felt the sting of pain and death, He knows what you’re going through,
  • So why not let Him heal your wounds and make you good as new.

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…

Sentenced To Death, Destined For Life: The Janiece Turner-Hartmann Story - Joseph James (Hartmann)

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.
