Nothing to Lose (the Clark Sisters Cover)

Image
You all know that I am a fan of The Clark Sisters.  One of my favorite songs by them is "Nothing to Lose (Jesus Unhooked the Chains)." This song really encourages to keep pushing because God gave me nothing to lose but all to gain.  Here is my recent cover on youtube. Love ya,

The Rain's Purpose

Image
Hey Family and Friends,
  It's just another day in my fabulous hood.  Today it is raining and You know how I don't really do that rain. The rain often times makes me feel blah and depressed and makes me wanna just sleep all day.  It seems as if my parade has been rained on.
  The bright side to this is that no matter how much it rains, the rain is there for a reason.  The rain comes to make things grow.  So it is with trials. James 1:2-3 states that we should count it all joy when rain or trials come because we know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.  Whenever trials come they come to build character and to strengthen our faith in God and ourselves.
  Have you ever found your self in a rainy place and felt like it couldn't get any better, but you decided to press on and make the best of it.  Sometimes we must look at the brighter side of things.  We are surviving the rain and the storm. Why? Because God is with us.  He said he would never leave us nor…

Is There Any Way ?

Image
For the last couple days I've been wondering, "God is there any way that I can make it."  I just been there.  With warning a friend that a step that he is about to take is dangerous, it seems as if he made the step regardless of warnings not only from me but from several other friends.  I am hurt because I see the road in which this friend is about to take. What do you do when you try your best to keep someone from making a mistake?  I guess let them learn the hard way.   It's difficult sometimes when you want so much for a person to stay on the right path and they won't listen. I guess because I've been there and have done that.  I just don't want this person's reputation to be stained by a messy queen, nor do I want my friend's feelings to get hurt while he's reaching his dreams.  I guess I just need to let go and let God and stop talking.  I do pray that he will see what's what before its too late.  Lord, Is There Any Way that this p…

Ain't Nothing Wrong With Me

Image
A few months ago, someone told me that they admired how I walk with confidence. I distinctly remember him saying "You walk like you're saying 'here I am, I am confident... I'm the sh...'" I must say, "I am the Ish!!!!."  It amazed me to see that someone else noticed my confidence despite the struggles I've had with my self-esteem over the years.
  I realize that I am wonderfully and fearfully made.  What gets me is that it seems for the last month, I've had certain groups of people tell me that I need to change my mannerisms and stuff and the fact that I'm fun, yet proper and prim, Black Male because they felt uncomfortable and felt that people will perceive me and them a certain way.  I find it funny, because I began to really see their insecurity in themselves.  I've learned that whenever people always hound you about yourself, then they are insecure with themselves.
   Due to the fact, that it is a job situation, I did have to…

Montre of Montre Biblehas an uncanny sense of humor.  He is one of my favorite vloggers and bloggers. He just makes sense in what he is saying about those "Good Christians" who want to stop the gays.


Big Mama and Me

Image
What is it about Grandma, or "Big Mama" as I call her? She has so much wisdom and so much love.  I love my grandma.  When I think of my grandma, I think of how for much of my life she practically raised me and took me to church.  I know that I have a praying grandmother.
  Music is in my life because of my grandmother. I remember as a child listening to Inez Andrews, Albertina Walker, Mahalia Jackson, The Soul Stirrers, Troy Ramey, Rev. James Cleveland, The Barrett Sisters, Mildred Clark.  I guess you can say I have an old soul.  My grandmother made sure that I was active in the church choirs and she encouraged me in all I do.
  My grandma is more than just my grandma; she's a mother, she's a teacher, a disciplinarian, a martyr, and a hero.  I love my grandmother. I love her home cooked meals, her stories of life.  I've even seen my grandmother shed a few tears, but the Queen is tough!!! I wouldn't have made it without God putting her in my life.  I love m…
