HERE WE GO AGAIN…

It is soooooooooo amazing how some messages keep repeating themselves. I think it’s called “spiritual confirmation”. On two days in a row this week, I received a text from Angelo which read: “When God determines that it’s time for HIS Will to be done, your circumstances don’t matter! This speaks to how mighty and powerful God is. See Ephesians 3:20. Amen!” Then on yesterday, I received several texts from
S. Diane. On one of them she said, listen to this old song called “Sovereign”. I listened and it is saying the exact same thing. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought it was time for me to pass it on.

WHY IS THIS A STORY???

*Offensive lineman Richie Incognito, who was at the center of the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal, for some reason took a baseball bat to his Ferrari, damaging the hood and grill, according to the Scottsdale (Ariz.) Police Department.
The title listed above and the story printed below is an article I found at eurweb.com. What’s confusing about the entire deal is that I don’t understand why this is news. If I own anything, it is mine and I can do with it what I will or may. Others may or may not like it, but it is not their business. When I saw the story, I was amazed that someone had taken the time to even print it. And now… I’m doing the same thing. Wow!!!
fERRARI
Sgt. Mark Clark said the police became aware of this situation after TMZ brought it to their attention Wednesday afternoon. He said the Dolphins guard took responsibility when police contacted him Thursday.
“They provided us with a photo of a damaged car and reported it to belong to Mr. Incognito, and they gave us an address,” Clark said. “We went out there and checked to see if there was a damaged car there. There was no car and no one answered the door.
“We went out there again this morning and we were able to contact Mr. Incognito and he reported that he damaged his own car and didn’t need any police help or report.”
Clark said further details are unavailable because no crime was reported and added that Scottsdale police are done with the matter.
Pictures and video posted by TMZ show the Ferrari, valued around $300,000, smashed on the hood and grill with a baseball bat lying nearby. A part of the bat is shown lodged in the car’s grille. TMZ reported there were red shirts hanging from the car with Incognito’s name written on them.
On Feb. 14, NFL investigator Ted Wells released his report which found that Incognito, guard John Jerry and center Mike Pouncey bullied and harassed tackle Jonathan Martin and others within the Dolphins organization.
According to the Palm Beach Post, TMZ also reported that Incognito’s parents have filed for divorce. In the divorce documents, Incognito’s dad said that the soon-to-be-former Dolphins guard supports the entire family financially.
Incognito is a free agent and will not return to Miami. He could still face a league suspension.

’12 YEARS A SLAVE’ BOOK, FILM TO BE TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS

I want you to check out this article. I’m in a rush this morning and I don’t have a lot of time to comment but WOW!!! I have heard a lot about this movie and I have ben planning on seeing it. It is now real high on my list.

*Author Solomon Northup’s harrowing book “12 Years A Slave,” and the Oscar-nominated film it inspired, will be added to the high school curriculum later this year, thanks in part to a campaign spearheaded by Montel Williams, reports the New York Times.

The National School Boards Association announced that the work will be sent to public high schools across the United States through a partnership between the federation of schools boards, New Regency, Penguin Books, and the film’s producers. The film will be accompanied in classrooms by the original 1853 memoir that inspired the movie and a study guide.
Individual school districts will decide whether or not to incorporate it in their curricula.
TV veteran Williams is funding the distribution of the film.
“When Hollywood is at its best, the power of the movies can be harnessed into a powerful educational tool,” read a statement from Williams. “This film uniquely highlights a shameful period in American history, and in doing so will evoke in students a desire to not repeat the evils of the past while inspiring them to dream big of a better and brighter future.”
Director Steve McQueen adds, “Since first reading ‘12 Years a Slave,’ it has been my dream that this book be taught in schools.”
The news comes just two days after the film triumphed at the NAACP Image Awards and a day after it picked up the Best Motion Picture prize at the annual Satellite Awards, where McQueen was named Best Director.
“12 Years a Slave” is also nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars on Sunday. The story follows Northup, a free black man living in upstate New York as he is abducted and sold into slavery.

MEN ARE FROM MARS, WOMEN ARE FROM… VENUS

Venus… wins first title for 16 months
Check out this story below. I was thrilled to have read it. It goes to show you that when you stick with something, you can prevail. Venus has suffered over the past few years with many ailments so I am certain that this victory for her is really something special.

Dubai (AFP) – Venus Williams, the seven times former Grand Slam champion, won the WTA Dubai Open on Saturday to silence some of the doubters who said she could never make a significant come-back at the age of 33.
Williams produced a magnificent performance by outplaying the tournament’s sensation, Alise Cornet, 6-3, 6-0 to earn her a first title in 16 months.
Williams only gained entry into the Dubai Open with a wild card after falling outside the top 40, yet completed five fine wins.
In doing so she avenged the defeat which the French player had inflicted on her sister Serena Williams in the semi-finals, captured her first Premier level title since 2010, and ensured she would climb back into the world’s top 30.
Williams’ face was afterwards wreathed with enormous smiles, while Cornet twice dissolved into tears during the match, aware from an early stage that she was unlikely to find a way to halt one of the game’s most formidable attacker two nights in a row.
“It’s great to be back,” she said, referring to her capture of the Dubai title four years ago.
“I was expecting to be playing Serena, but Alize played an amazing game in the semis, so congratulations on that.
“I have continued being able to practise, and I have been getting healthier,” Williams went on, referring to the long term effects of the immune deficiency which has been threatening her career.
“It hasn’t been easy. I have to thank the tournament for a wild card, and my family and Serena for encouraging me. They all kept me up when I was down.”
– consistent excellence –
Despite her consistent excellence, the first blow was Cornet’s.
Combining two great forehand drives, which dragged her opponent in different directions, she reached deuce on the Williams serve, and then immediately prospered from a double fault, perhaps induced by the return of serve pressure she created on the previous point.
Williams saved that break point, but conceded the next one with a moderate second serve, which Cornet thumped back hard and deep, forcing an error.
It gave Cornet a break, a lead of 2-1, and feeling that she was not out of place in this final.
But from that moment Williams, sensing the danger, raised her game, struck the ball better and, often roaring loudly, began to exert more dominance.
She broke back at once, with some help from Cornet who took a couple of risks too many in trying to maintain the initiative, and it propelled Williams to a run of four games which did much to alter the character of the contest.
Cornet bravely saved two set points in the eighth game, but Williams concluded it with a brilliant inside out backhand, which swung itself snugly into a small gap in Cornet’s forehand corner.
Williams began the second set by breaking serve for the third time in four attempts, even though Cornet produced the shot of the match, a running forehand sidespin passing shot which Nadal might have liked.
It was a brief interlude in the plot which saw Williams increasingly able to find telling blows while Cornet was forced to stretch and strain to contain.
Another break took Williams to 3-0, which she converted to 4-0, despite having to recover from 15-40. During also profited from an uncharacteristically prodigal miss by her opponent, causing Cornet’s eyes to fill with tears, and making her drop her racket.
It took several seconds for her to recover, but although she fought on bravely the momentum of Williams’ onslaught did not cease, and she finished the match with yet another flurry of fierce drives.
Cornet’s consolations were that she had achieved her first final on a hard court surface, and that she had managed four top 20 scalps, including a career best win to reach only her second Premier level final.
She is now very close to being back the top 20 for the first time in five years, a better player than she was then, and with every prospect of further progress.
With her sequence of five wins in this tournament Venus has remained ahead of sister Serena as the active player with the most WTA Tour wins (647 to Serena’s 641). Her dream of continuing till the Rio Olympics may yet be alive.

AIN’T NO NEED TO WORRY…

A lady at work introduced me to this video this week. I don’t know how I hadn’t seen it before. This is one of those songs that goes deep to the heart. I remember the original by the Winans and Anita Baker. This time, the song “Ain’t No Need to Worry” is being sung by Anita Baker and Donnie McClurkin on the Celebration Of Gospel in 2011. The video was posted on youtube.com in 2011 as well.

Tom Attwater is dying of a brain tumor, but he isn’t worried about his cancer. Instead, he is trying to save his 5 year-old daughter from her own.

He has vowed to raise approximately $820,200.00 for her cancer treatment, even if he wouldn’t be around to see her go through it.

Now Tom is almost half way to his fundraising target he is more adamant than ever to reach it. Tragically his deadline is short as his latest scans show his brain tumour is growing.

He says: “These days people make bucket lists, and the very top of mine – the one that matters most – is raising money to make sure Kelli gets the medical help she might need.

THIS WILL WARM YOUR HEART…

Despite the evil that is so prevalent in this world, there are still a lot of goodness that exists. This is another one of those social experiments that goes well and speaks to the kindness of strangers.
“The experiment was filmed by the Norwegian branch of the SOS Children’s Villages International charity as part of a campaign to provide warm clothing for displaced children in Syria”, according to The Nordic Page.

In the video, the majority of bystanders offer their coats or gloves to the boy.

“People should care as much about children in Syria as they care about this boy,” Synne Rønning, the information head of SOS Children’s Villages Norway, told The Local. She also noted that the child was a volunteer who was never in any danger during the filming.
