MEMORABLE MLK, JR QUOTES

I won’t let the day pass without acknowledging MLK, Jr and his major contributions to the Civil Rights struggle. Hopefully I’ll get a chance today to post more but at least this is my initial offering.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a leader who, like Mahatma Gandhi before him, and Nelson Mandela after him, showed us the way from weakness and division to strength in unity.

He challenged and inspired us to reach deeper within ourselves, despite ourselves, for our best, which sometimes is, simply, better than yesterday. His power endures because it’s rooted in the courage to hold hope and faith in each others potential: “knowing” we can do it… we can be better every day, each in our own way.

On this, the U.S. holiday celebrating his life and legacy, I present you with ten of his extraordinary thoughts on leadership:
•”A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.”

•”I am not interested in power for power’s sake, but I’m interested in power that is moral, that is right and that is good.”

•”All men are caught…

ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING…

Today is December 12, 2017. December 12th is a date that I’ll remember for a long time. Many years ago I became friends with a gentleman named Keith Harrell. Keith was a motivational speaker all over the country. He spoke about attitude. Keith was billed as of the top motivational speakers in the world. He died in 2010 and has left a great mark on this world. If you ever met him, you’d understand why. I usually post something on his birthday every year and this year is no different. Get you attitude adjusted by him today. Just listen to the above video. Thanks for calling today Vanessa. I thought about you this morning as soon as I remembered that this was Keith’s birthday. He’d be proud that we remembered.

HOW GREAT!!!

When I get it, I give it to you…..
This video was sent to me by loyal reader A. Renae. She sure knows what I like. “How Great Thou Art” is such a GREAT SONG that I want it sung at my funeral. On this rendition “JENNIFER HUDSON JOINS PENTATONIX FOR A PERFORMANCE OF “HOW GREAT THOU ART” FROM A VERY PENTATONIX CHRISTMAS, AIRING MONDAY, NOVEMBER 27 AT 10/9c ON NBC.” Needless to say, I’ll be in front of the tv to watch this or the DVR will be running. This out to get you in the mood to share your thankfulness. Who’s got big plans for Thanksgiving? Share with me what you’ve got going on. See you soon.

NOBODY GREATER…

For your Sunday evening wind down I’m sharing with you: Nobody Greater Remix by VaShawn Mitchell ft. Bebe Winans, Tasha Cobb. I was in the midst of doing something else this evening when I looked at my inbox and saw this that was sent to me by loyal reader A. Renae. I’ve got a project to finish but there’s NOBODY GREATER… than GOD!!! Enjoy!!!

FALL BACK

This is a reminder to set your clocks back 1 hour tonight because we are “falling back” to eastern standard time. We’ve been operating on daylight saving time.

•Daylight Saving Time began: Sunday 12 March 2017 02:00 local time. Clocks went forward one hour.
•Daylight Saving Time ends: 5 November 2017 02:00 local time. Clocks go back one hour.
According to al.com
“Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday Nov. 5, meaning you should set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed Saturday night. The tradition of “falling back” means you will get an extra hour to sleep Sunday morning but also signals the start of dark afternoons.

The switch pushes sunrise and sunset back an hour, meaning there will be more light in the morning with darkness coming sooner in the afternoon. On Sunday, sunset time will be around 4:50 p.m. CST. Hawaii and Arizona don’t observe Daylight Saving Time, meaning there’s no springing forward or falling backward on the clocks. U.S. territories such as American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands don’t make the change, either.”

YOU WILL WIN!!!

I have a lot of songs that I love. I heard this song almost two months ago and trust me, I LOVE IT!!! I’m really surprised that I’m just posting it.
This song is extremely heart-felt and it speaks to generations…
In this life we constantly face opposition in our personal lives, in schools, on our jobs, in our homes and the list goes on and on.  This song speaks to that.  I love how this song is described on youtube.com
It says:  “Jekalyn Carr‘s incredible song, “You Will Win” is the first single off her forthcoming live record, “One Nation, Under God.” The song is a bold statement of encouragement, and a prophetic declaration of victory over all things in God’s name.”
I can only tell you that this song means a great deal to me. You have to listen for yourself and I hope it speaks to you as it continues to speak to me. If it does, go out and buy it and support gospel music!!!
