Singing My Way Through “IT”….


Prayer changes things……. BUT so does MUSIC FOR ME….. There is nothing that can compare to hearing a God ordained song that changes your WHOLE situation (s)……. Not feeling down but want to remind MYSELF and others that when you think that things are “that bad” go grab a song and just lay there …..

wait for it – ……..wait for it…wait for it….and just let the tears rolls and your heart become filled because God will show up

Whew – singing music and hymnals unto the God that is able to keep me from falling and present me and you faultless…..

Now after singing that song  you must know NOW for sure that you have the V – I – C- T- O -R -Y……..

NOW…… if you believe in ” running and shouting”……. ( because I surely do ) >>>>here you go!

Do I Love Noah or Russell?? LOL


Funny title huh! Well, of course I love Noah and I surely love handsome Russell Crowe too! He is such a great actor – and his foreign ways are a bit interesting just as much! ……..LOL

I am SHOCKED that Hollywood has even produced a movie about “The Bible” first of all – Then I am shocked that they convinced Russell Crowe to accept the part..I mean not saying that he is not a religious man or anything but what BIG TIME Hollywood actors do you know have done any CHRISTIAN BASED roles?

The first thing that I thought of was how during Easter of this year, there was a blockbuster movie about The Bible and the life of Jesus Christ on The History Channel and it made tons of great reviews, ratings and money! So I guess that being CHRISTIAN is the new “it thing” for Hollywood to make money….I do not know for sure if that is the case but it is an EASY thing to speculate –  Welp, I pray that God penetrates not only Russell Crowe’s spirit but everyone who is connected to this movie – I am sure that this movie will be a huge money maker – More so I pray that people’s lives will be changed too.

CHANGING A LIGHT BULB THE CHRISTIAN WAY
How many Christians does it take to change a light bulb?
Charismatic
: Only 1 Hands are already in the air.
Pentecostal
: 10 One to change the bulb, and nine to pray against the spirit of darkness.
Presbyterians
: None Lights will go on and off at predestined times.

Unitarians
 : We choose not to make a statement either in favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, you are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your light bulb for the next Sunday service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, fluorescent, 3-way, long-life and tinted, all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence.
Methodists
: Undetermined
Whether your light is bright, dull, or completely out, you are loved. You can be a light bulb, turnip bulb, or tulip bulb. Bring a bulb of your choice to the Sunday lighting service and a covered dish to pass.

Nazarene : 6 One woman to replace the bulb while five men review church lighting policy.
Lutherans
: None Lutherans don’t believe in change.

Amish
: What’s a light bulb??

Tokyo is Calling Me…


This is one of the reasons why I would like to visit Tokyo! Yes the culture im sure is amazing but FINDING this church for me is a real bonus on my future visit!!! I watch this church online all the time on youtube….. my son just walked in the room and was sooo shocked seeing this because they were ASIAN.  I explained to him that Hallelujah is a UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE!

Yeah…… I need to get to this church asap!! LOL ( im so serious ) There is nothing like a Pentecostal Church!!!!

Just Remembering An Old Preacher


Missing a really great man of the cloth, the late Bishop Gilbert Earl Patterson…… He was indeed a follower of Jesus Christ. Whew…growing up on this type of prayer and leaders in ministry is so missed. A great deal of ministies turn to marketing INSTEAD of ministry and it shows from the pulpit to the doors of certain churches…… Such a sad day to be in ministry and your heart aches on all the things that people take for granted…

Parenting

Another Trip!


Oh how it is sad sometimes as parents when we SHIFT our kids off to camps over the summer! Nonetheless, just as the kids need their space, so DO WE LOL!

Talking to my mom about my son being gone so much over the summer, you know she is from a totaly different generation so after this trip, her facil expression was like…this is it! LOL

Well, I do not really feel that the way she feels is 100% via her generation, but more so the way that this current world is that we live in – #horrid! It is very crazy out here and with the Penn State and Jerry Sandusky / Joe Paterno foolishness, that does not make her feel any better! Well me either, but the camps that I have sent my little LOVE MUFFIN to, I prayed about them and felt comfortable so I allowed him to go….

This camp is actually from the church that my son is a member of so there was really no need for any panic…. NOT SAYING that nothing happens in “the church” because we all know that NOT to be totally true….. He was so overjoyed to get packed up and to go because his friends were also going on this trip, which made it all worth it to him! LOL

As much as I feel that I have been needing a break lately due to my WHOLE LIFE literally revolving aroudn my son – when it was time for the bus to pull out – I was sad!……

My son jumped on the bus so FAST – I could not really get MY PROPER MOMMY HUG! I tell that boy, you never know when it may be the last time that you see a loved one, so when you are departing from one another…give love! I understand he was with his friends – but give me a QUICK HUG – give a HIGH FIVE – just give me something right?

Yes, I went to his window to talk to him – pray with him AGAIN and remind him to be good!

One of his other friends came over to say hello and to get in the picture – BYE boys!

 

Family

Wednesday evening fun!


 

 There is a time when I wouldnt have thought that family would be the ONLY support system that I would have…. We all have gone through some aspect of our lives with more friends than we could ever imagine and could really even keep up with……

However, when you are not able to keep up in number then that usually means that you need to re evaluate and realize that you have too many….  God is love and allowing him to place those important people in my life has help nurtured me in so many areas…

this evening i went home changed my clothes and grabbed my 9 1/2 year old to go house hopping with friends and family and he didnt want to come but he asked to be dropped off at his church instead… which i can understand because the church that he attends is indeed amazing via their kids ministry. Too bad the church that I would like to attend dOes not have one……they dont have enough male presence there as well unfortunately……

I dropped my little old man off at church and sped away!! LOL

these two little munchins are my little nephews…. the one on the right is my blood nephew and the one on the left is my nephew’s best friend Mike, so he is also family…. Just being able to go somewhere and let my hair down in PEACE gives me an “” ahhh moment”….

These two boys I am so elated to say are not, have not and will not be an American Statistic…. They both attend college, have a job, live with their parents, are respectful to their parents and are Christian boys. In 2012 that is to be indeed applauded.

 APPRECIATING FAMILY IS WHAT I WILL ALWAYS DO…..
