Singing LOVE Songs

Matthew 22:37Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment.

I lift my hands in total adoration unto you
You reign on the throne
For you are God and God alone
Because of you my cloudy days are gone
I can sing to you this song
I just want to say that I love you more than anything love you Jesus
I worship and adore you
Just want to tell you
Lord I love you more than anything... Lamar Campbell 1John 4:19 We Love Himbecause He first Loved us.
I Love the Lord He heard my Cry And pity every groan Long as I live and troubles rise I'll hasten to His throne... Whitney Houston 1 John 4: 16 And we have known and believed the Love that God has for us. God is Love, and he who abides in Love abides in God, and God in him.
I really Love the Lord I really Love the Lord You don't know what He's done for me Gave me the victory I Love Him I Love Him I really love the Lord...  Char…

Dreaming Again

What do you do when a desire dream is elusive? I've had a specific dream for some time that appears so elusive.  I've been discouraged, hopeful, discouraged again, hopeful once more, annoyed, confused, withdrawn, fearful, optimistic and the cycle of emotions continue to rotate.

I heard a message this week at church once more on Faith, and was reminded that... without faith it is impossible to please [God], for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him Hebrews 11:6.


God it is my desire to please you. I know that I am not right all the time and my actions and attitude are not always right. But I'm even more thankful that you look beyond my actions and attitude and know that my heart/mind/soul desires is to love you, live for you and please you. I've been discouraged yet somehow hopeful that you will bring to pass this dream. I trust that you have already established it, perfected it and is bringing it to pass. …

See You at Sunrise Brother Sam

Brother Sam, you have been a special friend to us for many years.  At 91 you were still very sharp in mind, and will. I will always appreciate your visits to us, your recounts of your life experiences and I always marvel at how God raised you up and sustained you and by extension your family with favor. 

Your sunset has come and I am not sad.  I am going to miss you but I remember you telling my Mom recently that you were at peace with God and anytime He is ready for you, you are ready.  That statement made our hearts glad and at ease.

On your bed of affliction these past few weeks you never failed to say thanks for anything that was done for you. Even when you were weak. Brother Sam, over the years, your friendliness, hospitality and personality has served you well. The outpouring of love and numerous visits and personalized care you received outside of the hospital staff is a witness to the kind of person you were and how you were loved by many.

There is no doubt that we will meet …

Singing Praises to the Lamb

Isaiah 53:5-7But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,And by His stripes we are healed.

6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth;
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
Thank you for the cross, Lord Thank you for the price you paid Bearing all my sin and shame, in love you came And gave Amazing Grace
Thank you for this love, Lord Thank you for the nail-pierced hands Wash me in Your cleansing flow, now all I know Your forgiveness and embrace Worthy is the Lamb... Revelation 5:11-12 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, sayin…

I've Been Tagged_ Random Facts about Highly Favored

I was tagged by Ms. Cookie to write 20 15 (sorry ms. Cookie) random facts about myself. 

1.  I wanted to be in the Funeral Home business really bad. About the second semester of my early college days I took Mortuary Science classes for 1 semester. I had an awesome business plan too.  Don't worry I'm not an undertaker.

2. I am my Mothers only child.

3.  As a little girl I daydreamed about living in America and fantasized about what life would be like as I saw in movies.

4.  I have a gap between my two front teeth.  It's really cute if I can say so myself.  I like my smile.

5.  I've had natural hair since 2008, however in 2012 I decided to cut it ALL off and start over  again.  My goal was to be more intentional of taking care of my hair.  So far so good.  I get compliments and questions all the time.

6. I am an easy-going introvert but still manage to be friendly and get along great with most people.

7.  I observe the Sabbath and attend church services on Saturday.

Singing Praises to the Name

Philippians 2:10-11 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. No sweeter namethan the name of Jesus
No sweeter name have I ever known

You are the life to my heart and my soul
You are the light to the darkness around me
You are the hope to the hopeless and broken
You are the only truth and the way, the truth and the way

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus...


Acts 4:12 12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” That Name  There is a name that is so precious,
A name so wonderful to me.
This name is worthy of all praises.
Because of him, I am made free.
That name is Jesus, oh how I love him.
The one who gave, his life for …

Festival of Praise Concert

Last night I attended a Festival of Praise Concert featuring Donnie McClurkin and Fred Hammond.

I was blessed not only by the ministry of music but by the recent powerful testimonies of these men.  We had not seen Donnie McClurkin  in person concert before, but always enjoyed him on TV. When he came on stage my mom commented on how he looked so thin.  Would you know that he testified how he was recently diagnosed with diabetes AND that in August (a few months ago) he had cancerous cells in his throat that was discovered and removed just before they got to his vocal cords!! My God, My God.... I say Thank You Jesus!!!  Donnie did not hold back on his praise and the flow of the spirit working through him in song and ministry is tangible, its authentic, its genuine and it moves you every time.  Praise God. May God strengthen Pastor Donnie, heal and deliver him in Jesus Name.

Fred Hammond Shared that in January 2014 he had double knee surgery. His knees where so bad even his doctor told hi…

Affirmation in 3Dimensions

This morning I've been receiving words of affirmation from left and right; up and down.  The first was an E-mail to me that included several Managers thanking me for something I did yesterday.  After I responded and said "You're welcome" One of the Managers wrote my last name  Favor rules!!!, My Manager chimed in to confirm that she does rule with a little humor chimed in.

A little after that I got a phone call from a colleague in a different Division, who  called just to tell me how "STUNNING" I looked at a function we had at work yesterday.  Other words used were blown away, beautiful.

A few moments after that I got a text message from a potential suitor saying " enjoy this day...let the sun sine on you today."

Lord you know how much I needed to be encouraged and re affirmed today. Thank you for your spirit of light that illuminates around me so that others see your beauty radiating through me.  Thank you for your spirit of patience and diligen…
