Dream Deferred

Written by Langston Hughes


What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up

Like a raisin in the sun?

Or fester like a sore–

And then run?

Does it stink like rotten meat?

Or crust and sugar over–

like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags

like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?

This is the 20th anniversary of National Poetry Month.  What better way to commemorate than with this poem by one of my favorites, Langston Hughes.




To live


He set

Me free

H E    G A V E    H I S    L I F E    O N    C A L V A R Y

He took

The pain

For you

And I

An awful


That HE

Should die

And so

I thank

HIM when

I pray

And I


HIS name

This is one of the components that a lot of us miss when it comes to working out.  I’m posting this as a reminder not only for others but to myself as well. Water has many other benefits:

1.) It helps to remove toxins from the blood which helps to clear your skin.

2.) It helps to boost your metabolism (drinking 16 ounces of chilled water can boost your metabolism by 24% in the morning).

3.) It helps to balance your lymph system.

4.) It helps to purify the colon (especially when you drink it on an empty stomach).

I think I’m going to have some water right now.  Will you join me?





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

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.
