RELEASE…………

I heard this song twice this week and I love it! This song is the “FLAT OUT HIT OF THE WEEK” on the Willie Moore, Jr Show ( a gospel show on 102.5 in the Atlanta market). The song is by John P Kee featuring Miranda Curtis. The lyrics and vocals are just perfect. This is one of those songs that will be around for a long time.
Today’s scripture that I received in my inbox really goes along with the above song. I just love when that happens….

Galatians 5:1-26: Paul reminds the Galatians that Christ has set them free from the yoke of slavery by which the Law had them bound. He warns them about those who are seeking to convince them that male Gentile Christians should be circumcised, and he exhorts the Galatians to let the Spirit direct their lives.

Today’s Scripture: Galatians 5:25

The Spirit has given us life; he must also control our lives.

Other People Do Not Define You

This is a great read and a very good thought-process. Perhaps you have already read this. Please re-read it again anyway!!!

We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.

FORGIVE THEM ANYWAY.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish motives.

BE KIND ANYWAY.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.

SUCCEED ANYWAY.

If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you.

BE HONEST AND SINCERE ANYWAY.

A Bottled Idea (2-min Read)

This is definitely worth reading and re-reading!!!
I receive this message wholeheartedly!

A bottled idea is an idea that occurs to you which you decided not to put to work. It fades out and dies off like a candle light that has been put on for a long time in the daylight. When you ruminate on a matter for a long time without putting all the ideas that occur to you to work, you have bottled all the ideas. For instance, if an insect is put in a bottlethat is covered up for a long time, what happens to the insect, it would die, right? The same thing happens to any idea not put to use, it will soon be forgotten.

A writer says idea rules the world. That idea you have may be the one that would…

THE LOVE OF MONEY……

On a previous post, blogger Xena commented “The love of money….” That comment rings so true when it comes to the story below. It’s amazing the lengths that people will go through to get their hands on a few dollars. Check out the story below and if you choose to search for the hidden treasure…watch your step!

Acording to NY Daily News:
“The body of a Colorado pastor was found near the Rio Grande after he traveled to New Mexico to search for the hidden Forrest Fenn treasure, police said.
Paris Wallace, a pastor at Connection Church in Grand Junction, was reported missing by his wife Wednesday after he failed to show up to a meeting.
Authorities said Wallace had traveled to New Mexico on Monday to search for treasure famed author Forrest Fenn claims he hid somewhere in the Rocky Mountains in 2010. It’s believed the trove of gems and jewels is worth $2 million.”

According to CBS, police found Wallace’s car near the Taos Junction Bridge. A torn rope was found a short distance from the vehicle stretched across a tributary of the Rio Grande. His body was found about seven miles downstream.

Inside Wallace’s car were receipts for rope and other supplies the treasure seeker supposedly used to help him look for the hidden fortune.
In a statement to “CBS This Morning,” Fenn called Wallace’s death a “tragedy.”

“My heart and my prayers go out to his family and his church,” he said.

Below is the poem with the nine clues from “The Thrill of the Chase,” Fenn’s self-published autobiography:

As I have gone alone in there

And with my treasures bold,

I can keep my secret where,

And hint of riches new and old.

Begin it where warm waters halt

And take it in the canyon down,

Not far, but too far to walk.

Put in below the home of Brown.

From there it’s no place for the meek,

The end is drawing ever nigh;

There’ll be no paddle up your creek,

Just heavy loads and water high.

If you’ve been wise and found the blaze,

Look quickly down, your quest to cease

But tarry scant with marvel gaze,

Just take the chest and go in peace.

So why is it that I must go

And leave my trove for all to seek?

The answers I already know

I’ve done it tired, and now I’m weak

So hear me all and listen good,

Your effort will be worth the cold.

If you are brave and in the wood

I give you title to the gold.

Happy hunting!

WHAT’S IN YOUR WALLET???

The above phrase is used by a popular credit card company and after this article, a lot of people are going to want to keep more of their money in their own pocket… I found the article below on ajc.com This is the kind of behavior that turns a lot of people away from the church. This sorry pastor not only stole tithes from the church, he used it to purchase lingerie, leather goods, and God only knows what else….

According to AJC.COM

A Savannah pastor must spend 28 months in prison and pay his former church more than $178,000 after authorities say he stole tithes and church donations and put it in his personal account.

Corey Megill Brown, 47, was sentenced Friday, just months after he pleaded guilty to mail fraud that led authorities to the embezzlements that occurred between 2008 and 2014, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Georgia’s Southern District said in a news release.
The pastor worked at the Second African Baptist Church and was a chaplain for the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department.
Brown deposited the stolen funds into a shadow bank account called “Romans 12 Ministries” and used the money to make purchases at lingerie and leather goods stores, authorities said.

WOMAN DIVED IN FRONT OF CAR TO SAVE BOY

I saw this article on sandrarose.com and it shocked me to no end to see this lady knocked over like this. I had to watch this video over and over again. WOW!!! You’ve got to let me know what you think about this one. This is unreal!!!

Police in Bridgeport, Connecticut are calling Shanta Jordan a hero after she dived in front of a speeding car to save a boy she didn’t know.

CCTV footage of the horrific accident shows a woman walking along a sidewalk ahead of two boys.

Seconds later, Jordan comes into the frame as she threw her body in front of the second boy just as a car barreled toward him.

The car struck both Jordan and the boy, crushing them against a stone wall. They survived the impact but they were hospitalized with multiple fractures and internal injuries.

The other boy was also hit by the car and knocked to the ground but he escaped without injury.

The boy’s frantic mother assisted her other son off the ground before running for help.

Police say Jordan’s quick thinking and bravery saved the boy’s life.

She realized she didn’t have time to push him out of the way of the speeding car so she sacrificed her body for his by absorbing the impact of the crash.

“She is a heroine. That’s what she is,” said Bridgeport Police Chief A.J. Perez. “She is a great person, and she is an asset to this community.”

“If she did not step in, the child would be in direct contact with the motor vehicle against the wall and most likely, he would have perished,” said Perez.

Police and local leaders will honor Jordan at a ceremony at City Hall next week.

“Amazing woman, she is so brave for that,” Jordan’s friend and neighbor said. “If it wasn’t for her, that boy would not made it.”

Doctors initially feared they would have to amputate the boy’s legs, but they were able to avoid amputation.

The driver of the car was also hospitalized. He faces several charges, including reckless driving.
