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.

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…

I couldn’t let this nugget slip by without sharing it. I hope you read this and get the message!!!


This is arguably the most beautiful story I have received on whatsapp! READ…

A lady worked at a meat distribution factory. One day, when she finished with her work schedule, she went into the meat cold room (Freezer) to inspect something, but in a moment of misfortune, the door closed and she was locked inside with no help in sight. Although she screamed and knocked with all her might, her cries went unheard as no one could hear her. Most of the workers had already gone, and outside the cold room it’s impossible to hear what was going on inside. Five hours later, whilst she was at the verge of death, the security guard of the factory eventually opened the door. She was miraculously saved from dying that day. When she later asked the security guard how he had come to open the door, which wasn’t his usual work routine…
