LET IT SHINE!

I can’t imagine seeing anything cuter than this today!!! I don’t know where this little kid is from so I won’t be able to provide that information. This youtube.com video was sent to me by loyal reader A. Renae and it only said the following: 4 Year Old Caleb T. Singing “This Little Light of Mine.”
AND sing it he did! I’m sure that his parents are just dumfounded and completely elated. I know I am. Enjoy!… and have a TERRIFIC THURSDAY!!!

FRIDAY INSPIRATION

This was in my in-box this morning from loyal reader A. Renae.  I hope it gets you going like it did me.  This is a flashback video called “When I Rose This Morning” by the Mississippi Mass Choir.  Hopefully this will encourage you to get up and keep it moving as you function in your hopes, dreams, and goals.  Be inspired!!!

FRIDAY INSPIRATION: “THE PRAYER”

I’ve heard many versions of this song.  Most of them are really good.  This is Donnie McClurkin & Yolanda Adams singing The Prayer.  Trust me, we all need it not just daily, but moment by moment.  Enjoy your Friday Inspiration.

DAYBREAK

Sunrise-landscape-render-retouches

DAYBREAK

The sun has just peaked over the water

Steadily inching its way upward

Resplendent arrays of colors emerge

Inexplicable patterns appear in the clouds

No two quite the same

The ocean jumps and roars as if its’

Audience is giving a rising ovation.

The cheering crowd then subsides,

But only briefly.  With each

Passing second, the glory ascends

Higher, then momentatily…it pauses

And sits directly on the water.

The birth of this new day has been

Consummated.  whatever else happens

Will be miniscule in comparison.

Have a wonderful day.

GREAT MESSAGE

praying-hands

I heard a great message

I went to church today

It had such a great impact

I knew I had to pray

Talked about making an impression

And reaching the next generation

Just to positively influence them

Is in fact a great sensation

Some think it’s about the gift of gab

And all they do is talk

Strap on those persuasive shoes

And then begin to walk

I’m sharing with you the concern

And I’ll just do my part

Hopefully… you’ll join in on this mission

And do what’s in your heart

THANKFUL

For GOD… who sent HIS SON to die for sin.
For the eternal peace that I have within.
For the ability to live, love, and be free.
For my senses; I-can hear,touch,smell,taste…and see!
For the beauty of HIS holiness, great and small.
For unconditional love… I’m thankful for them all!

ALL ABOUT CHRISTMAS

Lay the gifts aside and get with this:  Christmas is not about the shiny red bow on a box.  What many often forget is that this is a great time to minister to others about the miraculous birth of JESUS CHRIST and HIS saving grace.  The meaning is really conveyed here in this awesome video from the movie “The Bible”.  The song “Mary Did You Know” is being performed by Ceelo Green.

Luke 2:1, 4-5 NIV – The Birth of Jesus ] In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.

FOR YOUR SPIRIT: “FEEL LIKE PRAISING”

I know I haven’t posted in a while. Hopefully I’m on the back end of this pinched nerve and I can get back to some degree of normalcy. I’m posting today for your spirit. This is new music from Willie Moore, Jr. He is a gospel radio disc jockey and a pastor. He can be heard in a lot of cities all around the country. This one is called “Feel Like Praising”. Let me know what you think about it.

EX-CON PRAYS FOR POLICE OFFICER(S)

I found this on Christiantoday.com and thought that it would be apropos today.  Check out this interesting backdrop/juxtaposition to what we normally see in the news. 

A papal visit can’t heal these wounds

The last time Edward “Doc” Amey saw Texas City Officer Salvador Chapa he was being arrested on a gun charge. That was eight years ago back when Amey used to be a gangster but recently he found God and since then he’s been living a righteous life. He used to sell drugs; today he stops police and asks if he can pray with them and more importantly, for them.”I have not always been a friend to the police,” Amey told KHOU. “I grew up selling drugs. I’ve been to prison three times.”
According to the news station, Amey’s rap sheet includes six felony convictions and several more misdemeanors. But Amey says all of that is behind him as he lives a prayerful life.”The last week-and-a-half God has really been giving me the urge to pray for police officers,” Amey said.

So when he saw Officer Salvador Chapa he asked if he could pray for him. The officer agreed and the two men held hands, bowed their heads as Amey lead them in prayer. Amey’s friend who had no idea he was going over to pray with the officer snapped a photo of the two men praying. The photo has gone viral on social media.

“I arrested him several years ago on a gun charge,” Chapa said. “And due to that, he ended up doing some time.”

Amey told the news station that he hopes the power of prayer can help change the negative image that people have of young black men and cops.

“They’re used to seeing cops getting killed by young black men or young black men getting killed by cops,” Amey told KHOU. “They’re not used to seeing an ex-con and a cop praying with each other.”

Amey told the officer, “I love you,” at the end of his prayer.

“I love you, too, brother,” Chapa said. “Thank you very much for praying for us.”
