Some consider this gospel song by Tasha Cobbs Leonard – “I’m Getting Ready” Feat. Nicki Minaj to be controversial because Nicki (a secular rap artist) is on the track. I’m glad that God is baking the cake, and we’re not!!! Thanks Ann for sending me this new music. This is the first time that I heard it also.
Today’s Scripture: Titus 3:4, 5a (came to my inbox this morning)
When the kindness and love of God our Savior was revealed, he saved us.
You are braver than you believe
Stronger than you seem
Smarter than you think
And loved more than you know
This was one of the most poignant performances that I saw on the 2017 VMAs on MTV. This performance was by
Logic ft. Alessia Cara & Khalid. They performed “1-800-273-8255”.
Let me know what you think.
This post is for those that are enduring the horrendous conditions that hurricane Harvey is causing in Texas at this time. According to reports “officials in Texas said Monday afternoon that at least eight people appear to have died as a result of the storm battering the state. That toll includes six people in Harris County, home to Houston; one person in Rockport, near where Harvey made landfall; and another person in La Marque, near Galveston”.

The 5th Of Twenty Ten @Miscellaneous
They were late the both of them
Late for the trip
Perhaps all legitimate
Perhaps someone taking a sip
It is funny
Depends on how you look
Seems like a long song
Or like someone reading a book
Michael died at fifty
Not fiddy cents
The mind and breath are getting foggy
Who’s giving out mints
The rain hasn’t stopped
And the sky yet gray
The music has suddenly changed
Perchance to stay that way
Look, he rolled up on me
Never knew he was a cop
Take a listen at all this madness
When is it ever gonna stop?
This is the first song that I thought about today when I began thinking about a way to say THANK YOU to all of the bloggers, friends, and anyone who comes to visit this blog. The truth is that we all need each other on this planet more than we know in order to survive. I think about all of the violence going on in this country basically regarding race. I think it is so ironic that in one week to see people fighting each other and then the next week pulling together to watch the sun and the moon (the eclipse). AND then the following week people having to merge together to support each other because of a major hurricane that is devastating lives. Sometimes we can’t see the big picture because we’re all up in the frame.
Okay, back to the reason I’m doing this post. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU…for all of the likes, the comments, the love, the education, the friendship, and just for being you. If I posted this song before, just know that I like the song just as much now as I did before. Again, I appreciate you all…
“I NEED YOU TO SURVIVE” is by Hezekiah Walker and the Love Fellowship Choir…
