A bunch of things I'd LOVE to do...

I really have nothing to blog about, wat’s new, eh, lol…so, here’s some filler material…these are in no particular order by the way…

1. Go to a big game, Lakers, Yankees, u get my drift…
2. Go to a major concert by one of my all time fave musicians, uhhm, that’s a long list right there so any one of em wud do…
3. Visit Israel, do the whole Jerusalem tour n all..
4. Go to VEGAS, I mean, that’s like self explanatory…
5. Visit Paris, E, kikoleko, haha…kiddin but it’s always been a dream, wud love to go with a boyfriend/hubby tho since it seems so romantic...takin a stroll down the Champs-Elyseesy, to the Eiffel tower, holding hands under the moonlight, lol...
6. Have a serious conversation with a celebrity, right now Brangelina is way up there on that list, I’d like to see for myself whether their whole humanitarianism thing is 4 real or just a front, I'm a people reader like that, :)
7. Go to a champagne party, some dude’s been rambling on and on and on ‘bout how HOT the ones he throws are, lol...
8. Go to St. Tropez (next day after the Eiffel tower stroll, :)), rent a yatch and party it up Diddy style...k, I know now my wish list seems a bit far fetched but hey, anything is possible, lol…
9. ADOPT a child or even children…I pray to even start by just sponsoring one/some as soon as I can afford it, tho with this whole Maddona biz, it might just have to stay at that, sponsoring I mean coz I’ve been having heated arguments with a couple of people ‘bout the whole adoption thing…
10. Visit a recording studio and record a song...hey If Paris can "SING", so can I, ha!

Song I'm listenin to rite now: Irreplacable- Beyonce (Bday Album)

Peace n Love! Bless!

K, I read this in one of my devotional books yesterday and it was real challenging...taken from, " Simple Words of Wisdom, 52 virtues for every woman" and I'm sure men can relate, too...:)

"There is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul." - Victor Hugo, 1862

Those ancient family photos tell the tale: my ancestors in sepia tones, peering out at me from the cracking pages of an album that dates back to the Civil war. I don't know their names, but I know they trace their lineage from the Stokes clan. Heavy overhanging brows, dark eyes, square jowls that become more pronounced with age- even with the dilution of generations, those dominant genes prevail. The family resemblance is remarkable.

I pray that, as I mature, the "family resemblance" that marks me as a daughter(/son) of God will be equally evident. For that is what we're called to, after all- to take on the characteristics of the One who created us in the Divine Image. The prime directive of spiritual life is not what we do, but who we are. It is the passion to become increasingly like Jesus Christ, the Elder brother of the family. It is the invitation to godliness. Paul makes the mandate clear: "Be imitators of clearly beloved children, and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." (Eph. 5:1).

The problem is, some of us mistake godliness for god-likeness. Like Adam and Eve, we fall prey to the temptation of wanting to "be like God". Then when we get a little spiritual truth under our belts, we start acting as if we're omnipotent and omniscient. True godliness, however isn't a spiritual trump card that enables us to exalt ourselves over others. It is the quiet, secret, inner longing to become more like Christ, to imitate our Lord and cultivate the fruit of the Spirit. In Phillipians 2, Paul exhorts us to "have the same attitude as Christ Jesus"- an attitude not of spiritual superiority, but of humility, of servanthood, of sacrifice, of love.

If Jesus Christ was, as the Bible claims, the earthly incarnation of the Divine nature, his life and ministry should give us an example to emulate. And what an example it is! Jesus loved. He reached out to those on the fringes of acceptable society. He fraternized with outcasts, embraced lepers, fed the hungry, offered hope to the despairing. He healed the sick, gave sight to the blind, set the captives free. He lived in grace, in forgiveness, in integrity.

This is the ancestral portrait. This is our spiritual gene pool.

Peace n Love! God Bless!!!

Runaway Love...

Yeahh, And it go a lil somethin,
Like, like this, Runaway love (x8)

(Verse 1-Ludacris) Now little Lisa is only 9 years old,
She's tryin to figure out why the world is so cold
Why she's all alone and they never met her family
Mamas always gone and she never met her daddy
Part of her is missin and nobody will listen
Mama is on drugs gettin high up in the kitchen
Bringin home men at different hours of the night
Startin with some laughs--usually endin in a fight
Sneak into her room when her mamas knocked out
Tryin to have his way and little Lisa says 'ouch'
She tries to resist but then all he does is beat her
Tries to tell her mom but her mama don't believe her
Lisa is stuck up in the world on her own
Forced to think that hell is a place called home
Nothin else to do but get some clothes and pack
She says she's bout to run away and never come back.

(Hook - Mary J. Blige) Runaway love (x8)

(Verse 2 - Ludacris) Little Nicole is only 10 years old
She's steady tryin to figure why the world is so cold
Why she's not pretty and nobody seems to like her
Alcoholic step dad always wanna strike her
Yells and abuses, leaves her with some bruises
Teachers ask questions she's makin up excuses
Bleedin on the inside, cryin on the out
Its only one girl really knows what she about
Her name is lil Stacy and they become friends
Promise that they'll always be tight til the end
Until one day lil Stacy gets shot
A drive-by bullet went stray up on her block
Now Nicole stuck up in the world on her own
Forced to think that hell is a place called home
Nothin else to do but get some clothes and pack
She says she's bout to run away and never come back.

(Hook - Mary J. Blige) Runaway love (x8)

(Verse 3 - Ludacris) Little Erica is 11years old
She's steady tryin to figure why the world is so cold
So she pops X to get rid of all the pain
Cause she's havin sex with a boy who's sixteen
Emotions run deep and she thinks she's in love
So there's no protection, he's usin no glove
Never thinkin bout the consequences of her actions
Livin for today and not tomorrows satisfaction
The days go by and her belly gets big
The father bails out he ain't ready for a kid
Knowin her mama will blow it all outta proportion
Plus she lives poor so no money for abortion
Erica is stuck up in the world on her own
Forced to think that hell is a place called home
Nothin else to do but get her clothes and pack
She say she's about to run away and never come back.

(Hook - Mary J. Blige) Runaway love (repeats till end)

Yeahh, I can only imagine wat u goin thru ladies, sometimes I feel like runnin away myself, so do me a favour right now and close ur eyes, and picture us runnin away togetha, wen we come back everythin is gonna be okay, open ur eyes...

The Prayer.

Andrea Bocelli with Celine Dion
Music by David Foster
Original Lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager

I pray you'll be our eyes, and watch us where we go
And help us to be wise, in times when we don't know
Let this be our prayer, when we lose our way
Lead us to the place, guide us with your grace
To a place where we'll be safe. The light that you give us
I pray we'll find your light, Will stay in our hearts
And hold it in our hearts, Reminding us
When stars go out each night. That in my prayer
You are the everlasting star. Let this be our prayer

There's so much faith, When shadows fill our day
Lead us to a place, Guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe, We dream of a world with no more violence
A world of justice and hope, Grasp your neighbor's hand
As a symbol of peace and brotherhood, The strength that you give us
We ask that life be kind, Is the wish
And watch us from above, That everyone may find love
We hope each soul will find, In and around himself
Another soul to love, Let this be our prayer

Let this be our prayer, Just like every child
Just like every child, needs to find a place,
guide us with your grace, give us faith so we'll be safe
And the faith that, You've lit inside of us,
I feel will save us, Let this be our prayer...

With a Little Hope.

Often, it is through the most difficult days of our lives that we come to know ourselves and what is truly important to us. No matter how sad you may feel at times, be confident that hope will awaken with you tomorrow.Faith and courage reach out to you; take hold of them, and you will find that you will be able to smile again and truly be happy once more. How we deal with life is really a matter of personal choice, so choose to be happy. Find joy in the simplest things, and see beauty in each person you meet.When times are difficult, remind yourself that no pain comes to you without a purpose. Above all, trust in God's handcrafted plan that He has made just for you. Let Him love you through life's joyous and painful aspects; if you do, you will find inner peace and unending joy.
~Kelly Wolfe~

Gods Time.

If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do not attempt to resolve it. Kindly put it in the SFGTD (something for God to do) box. All situations will be resolved, but in His time, not yours...hope this blesses, it blessed me!! Peace n Love!!! God Bless!!
