Embrace the Positive. Discard the Negative.

Take a minute to take stock of your life. Identify who and what is a positive influence. Be that by their guidance, friendship or love. Embrace them and move forward with them. Then negative influences? Discard them and move on. Everyone and everything can not come along with you on your path. Reaching for the stars is hard enough by itself don’t let yourself be weighed down by those that bring only negativity to the table.

He Woke Me

Woke up today to another Monday and could hear the rain as it fell upon my window sill. My first thought was ugh!! Monday and to make things worst rain.  Than I thought about it and realized I woke this morning! 

Yes I woke! Thanks to the grace of God my eyes opened to a new day.  

The rain? Well the rain I realized was symbolic of the Lord raining down his blessings upon me. Keeping me one of his children safe as I begin another week!  

Yes the Lord has allowed me to experience a new day and he woke me and for that I am truly blessed. 

Have a blessed week everyone!

You can tell everybody – He’s the one

Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
He’s the one, He’s the one , He’s the one
Yes He is, Yes He is, Yes He is.

I believe in Him no matter what life may bring me
Praised him to all who hear my voice
Had my faith tested but never did I fold.

Well it ain’t that hard when you believe
Somewhere I heard that life is a test
I been through the worst but I still give my best
God stands with me through the storms
Then he works it out so I know I’m blessed.

Stand up now and face the sky
Don’t let your troubles consume you
It’s time to do what must be done, come home and praise him
For He is the King of all the earth; Sing praises with a skillful psalm.

Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
He’s the one, He’s the one , He’s the one
Yes He is, Yes He is, Yes He is.

He’s got all the answers to your questions
He has established His throne in the heavens, And His sovereignty rules over all.
If we confession our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
For He is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know His name name trust in Him, for He has never forsaken those who seek Him.

He’s the one
Go ahead and tell everybody what I’m saying y’all
He’s the one, He’s the one , He’s the one
Yes He is, Yes He is, Yes He is

Lovely Day

It’s Monday
It’s damp and cloudy outside
But smile because to paraphrase Bill Withers

When I wake up in the morning, God
And the sunlight hits my eyes
And something without warning, God
Bears heavy on my mind

Then I think of you
And the world’s alright with me
Just one thought of you
And I know it’s gonna be
A lovely day
A lovely day

When the day that lies ahead of me
Seems impossible to face
When someone else instead of me
Always seems to know the way

Then I think of you
And the world’s alright with me
Just one thought of you
And I know it’s gonna be
A lovely day
A lovely day

A Day of Celebration

Today we celebrate the 90th birthday of the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Junior and the 10th anniversary of the inauguration of the first African American President of the United States, Barack Obama. Both of these men exemplified class and dignity. They inspired us to treat each other as brothers and sisters and motivated us to be a better person today than we were yesterday. They represented the promise of what America is supposed to be and it is in acting in their spirit that will Make America Great.

A New Year

It is that time once again.  The ending of one year the beginning of another. 

A new year!  A call to action! The opportunities to be better tomorrow and each succeeding day than you are today.  

A chance to break free of the mundane, to refuse to paint in black and white and between the lines but instead wherever your imagination takes you.  To paint your future in the bold strokes and daring colors it was meant to be painted in

A new year is the chance to embrace the truth. The truth that nothing is impossible as long as your faith remains strong and you dare to dream. 

A new year,

A blank canvass,

A new beginning,

Seize it, 

Make it yours

Because after all the future is but what you make it
