The American Music Awards were on last night and though I did not get a chance to watch the entire show, I did not miss this awesome performance of “My Heart Will Go On” by the legendary Celine Dion. She shut the place down with this performance that brought the crowd to it’s feet. Enough of what I have to say. Check her out!
Many years ago I was in the process of writing a poem for my mom for Mother’s Day and I messed around and heard this song. The song said everything that I really wanted to say without me writing a word. As much as I continued to try to write my poem, these words continued to bounce around in my heart and my head. Truthfully I got mad at first because I could not create the poem that I wanted to write. Then, I decided to embrace the beauty of this song and today I’m dedicating this song to my mom and to all of the wonderful mothers out there (including my 2 sisters who sometimes think that they are my mom… lol). As much as I love the words in this song, there are so many more words that can be said about the love that my mom has administered… over the years. Her particular brand of love need to be packaged and shipped around the world (yes, she’s that AWESOME). I guess that’s why God gave her to me!!!

A friend sent me this email yesterday. Even though I don’t normally post those “pass it on” emails, I felt the need to post this one. Check it out and hopefully you’ll understand why. With this email I am posting “The Prayer”. I’ve posted the one sung by Yolanda Adams and Donnie McClurkin before. Today I’m posting the version by Celine Dion and Josh Groban. Enjoy!
If you take 1 minute to read this prayer, imagine how many prayers are going up for our country.
Hi Lord, it’s me. We are getting older and things are getting …bad here. Gas prices are too high, no jobs, and food and heating costs too high. I know some have taken you out of our schools, government and even Christmas, but Lord I’m asking you to come back and re-bless America . We really need you! There are more of us who want you than those who don’t! Thank You Lord, I Love You.
If you agree, send it on—if not, just delete.
Only you & the Lord will know.
