Merry Christmas

Hello everyone! I know that it’s been a long while since I have updated my blog. I thought that today would be the perfect time to get back on track.

I just want to take a moment to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Take the time to remember the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus is one of the Greatest Gifts God has ever given us. I hope that you love Him and appreciate Him as much as I do!

Also be sure to cherish those that you love. Many people have lost loved ones this year. I know that you are hurting. But if your loved ones knew the Lord they are with Him today. Rejoice!

Don’t take your life for granted. Life is so precious and fragile. Live each day to the fullest and love everyone with your entire heart.

Once again, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I will be back with more new material in the new year. So please don’t forget to visit again.

I love you all. Be blessed

Happy Birthday Michael – Remembering Michael Jackson

I was and still am the biggest Michael Jackson fan of all time. I developed my intense love of music by listening to and studying Michael. My grandmother introduced me to Michael’s music before I was old enough to even speak. I remember many weekends when it was just the two of us together listening to Michael’s Thriller album. It was a happy time.

Eventually I grew up and played his music constantly. I was just in love with all things Michael. My Michael Jackson collection proves that. I don’t have everything. Very few people do. But, I managed to accumulate quite a bit in spite of my family not having much money. I’ve been very blessed.

I have supported Michael always. Through the thick and the thin. I didn’t become a fan of his in his death. I’ve been a fan since Thriller. When people were lying about him Continue reading

Welcome home Euna Lee and Laura Ling!

I am so happy about the safe return of Current TV reporter’s Laura Ling and Euna Lee to the United States from North Korea where they were held prisoner. I can’t even begin to imagine the terror, and deep sadness they must have felt over the fact that they may never come home and see their families again.

Five months is a long time to have your world turned upside down and your future up in the air. “Will we come home?,” they must have asked themselves many times. “Or will we be prisoner’s in a hard labor camp for 12 years for a crime we didn’t commit?”

The fact that they Continue reading

Happy Father’s Day!

I just want to take a moment to wish all of the Dad’s out there a beautiful and blessed Father’s Day! I wish that my dad could be here with me, but I like to believe that he’s up there in Heaven celebrating the day with our glorious Heavenly Father! 🙂

Enjoy your special day. And children young and old, appreciate your dad’s today and everyday. Be sure to thank God for your dad’s. And if you’ve lost your Father as I have or your Father was never there, just turn to God who is your Father in Heaven. He loves you more than any earthly father ever could. He’s waiting for you to turn to Him now. Just let His love wash over you!

Lord bless you!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I just wanted to take a moment to wish all of the awesome and amazing Mother’s out there a very Happy Mother’s Day. There is no one as special as a Mother. You are also so often unappreciated. So, I am taking the time to let you know that you are appreciated and loved.

Enjoy your special day. You deserve it.

Lord bless you!

Brazilian Model Mariana Bridi de Costa

Brazilian Model Mariana Bridi de Costa

I came across a story last Friday afternoon (January 23, 2009) about a young 20 year old Brazilian model that really touched my heart. Her name was Mariana Bridi de Costa.

Everything had been going well in her world. She was achieving her dreams and accomplishing goals that would allow her and her family to have a better life someday. She had placed sixth in a major contest just last year in China, and had been signed by model scout Dilson Stein who was also responsible for discovering Supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

Then in less than a month her entire world was flipped upside down. Continue reading

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I would just like to say in this post that I am forever grateful to this man of God that stood up for the rights of his people, and for everyone. Because of him I can write here without fear or shame of people finding out about the fact that I’m black. Or even just being able to write here at all because I am black. Because of this man I can eat where I want. I can work where I want. I can marry a man of another race, because it is no longer illegal to do such a thing. I can go where I want without fear Continue reading
