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!

Diversity in Christ Jesus –


I need to visit Japan and fellowship with them because they OBVIOUSLY do not see “color ” when it comes to CHRIST!

Memories –


I was thinking of when I was being honored at a Banquet and when I realized that my son was getting an award as well –  You know I was mushy and teary eyed!! About 5 years ago – I started doing street ministry but to the Homeless population  called The Coleman Cares Winter Project and I went out from October until April giving out clothes, coats, socks, hot beverages and food.

This was done by MY OWN money as well as my son’s little piggy bank ( by his choice – which touched my heart as well ) Nonetheless, my son was also honored since he was in the trenches with me! This photo was taken when my NOW 11 year old son was about 6 years old.

The Lord’s work has its own kind of reward that does not always come / show up in the FORM of currency……God is good.

Finally The Votes!


A Pastor friend of mine just sent me this info and I am very in awe of some of the votes!!! Here is his email word for word…

Well, the numbers are in with close to 5,500 having taken my poll for the 2012 COGIC Leaders the results are below.  Please note that I closed the poll at midnight Saturday night, which might not reflect what will happen in the General Assembly due to Bishop J. Neal Haynes having an episode during the Official Day Service.

It was more that a struggle for him to complete a simple task of leading the congregation in the COGIC Statement of Faith.  If you paid close attention to your program Bishop Haynes was not originally on the program, but his daughter requested her father be added.  Seems that was a huge mistake now and just might be the reason he does not get back on the General Board.

Additionally, Sunday Night he had to be escorted out of the service by Bishop Daniels and an adjutant when it is rumored he became overwhelmed.  However, this is not the first time the National Church has an opportunity to see there is an issue with Bishop Haynes, four years ago during his speech to be re-elected to the General Board he told the story on how he met his wife and most recently during the Bishop’s Conference in Detroit he interrupted Bishop Blake’s message that he would give an offering of $10,000.

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…

Affirmation of Faith


I believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible written Word of God.I believe that there is One God, eternally existent in three Persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.I believe in the Blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the Church of God, which is in Christat His return.I believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin, is through repentance, faith in the precious Blood of JesusChrist and being baptized in water.I believe that regeneration by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential for personal salvation.I believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing in prayer.

I believe that the baptism in the Holy Ghost, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.

I believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a Holy and separated life in this present world,

Amen
