‘That Thing That We FEAR But Sets Us FREE…’

‘…We Live in a Time where TRUTH has Stumbled in the Streets and Dishonesty ‘Runs Amok’…Where We accept Lies, KNOWING that they are Lies and Deny the TRUTHS…Where We tend to LOVE what’s Wrong but Hate what’s RIGHT…Where We are Afraid to be labeled ‘Too Christian’ but not Afraid to be labeled ‘Too Worldly’…Where we Throw Our INTEGRITY into the Wind but Holdfast to Our Sinful and Worldly Ways…We Live in a Time where We can’t see Ourselves because We have worked so Diligently to Be Someone or Something Else…We Live in a Time where We are Always COMPARING Ourselves to Others so as to be an -ER or an -EST among them and the TRUTH is, ‘There is No WIN in COMPARISON!’…We Live in a Time where ‘TRUTH has Stumbled in the Streets and it’s Time for it to Rise Again…’

LOVE ISN’T TO BLAME…

LOVE ISN’T TO BLAME…

‘Upon reading the ‘Washington Post’ on Valentine’s Day there was an article that posed the question, ‘LOVE…Why are We drawn to it? Why do We seek It and Want It?’ Simple! Because LOVE is what GOD Wants Us to do. Yeah, We can Fight against It. Flee from It. Fear It. Hate It. Speak Pessimistically about It. Feel that LOVE/LOVING makes One weak but the TRUTH is, We ALL Want and Long for LOVE‘s Touch upon Our Lives. GOD has placed in each and every One of Us the Want for anoher Individual to share Life and LOVE with. And, Everything that We do, mostly the Wrong things to acquire It, is a Seeking for LOVE. Yes, many of Us say that We have been hurt by LOVE but LOVE doesn’t Hurt because IT‘s PERFECT. We, People, Men, Women are the source that cause each other the Pain by having Wrong motives and being Selfish and then it looks as if LOVE is the culprit. (It’s so eay for Us to blame LOVE.) LOVE is the Greatest of Them ALL! GOD is LOVE! We ALL Want LOVE! It’s time to Stop making LOVE a MONSTER that will bring about Our demise and grasp It and allow IT to be exactly what IT is…PERFECT…And, allow IT to bring into Our Lives exactly what We ALL Want…Joy…’

LOVE, My Friend, IT’s PERFECT!

WHY???

WHY???

Upon awakening this Morning My mind pondered the question of ‘WHY?’ I know that We live in a World/Society that is all about Money, Things, Material, Sex, Greed, Dishonesty, Hate, Revenge, Disrespect, Racism and, let’s not forget SELFISHNESS, the ‘It’s ALL About ‘ME’ and What ‘I’ Want!’ mentality and we say, ‘Well, that’s just the way it is… It is what it is!…’ But, ‘Why?’Why do We simply settle for that’s just the way it is?’ ‘Why do We just accept that it’s the way it is and it can’t or won’t change?’ ‘Why is it ‘It Is What It Is!?’

ALL of the above is exactly WHY? it is what it is and just the way it is. We tend to Believe that there is noting that can be done or are too Cowardly to stand and say or DO anything against ALL of the IMMORALITY and Wrong that We see in the World/Society today. We would rather sit back and simply accept it than to stand up and say something against it and take the risk of being Different or seem to be ‘Not a PART of the World/Society'(GOD Forbid that!), even though We know that something needs to be done.

There are Many individuals asking or wanting to know WHY? things are as they are or are simply accepted to be as they are and wondering WHY? are We so oblivious to the TRUTH and WHY? aren’t many more individuals standing up for CHANGE?

Throughout history We have seen what happens to those that take a STAND against the Wrongs and the Ways of the World/Society, Man’s Ways. Those that take a Stand or Speak Out are ostracized, Martyred, hated, talked about, alone, disrespected, Black-Listed, just to name a few and maybe that is the reasoning for so few individuals allowing their Voice to be heard or expressing their feelings and thoughts about how things ‘Just Are’ at present. This is Sad and shows how Lost We are as a People, as a Species.

Until enough individuals take a Stand and allow their Voices to be heard about WHY? things are the way they are, they will remain the Way that they are and nothing will Change for the Better for any of Us, Our Society or Our World.

My Friend, are You asking WHY??? I Am! What do You feel that We can do about it?

For Fathers…

For Fathers…

Thinking about many of the issues that Women have in relationships, issues they have with Men and many times with themselves, I came to the conclusion that much of it has to do with the relationship that they had or have with their Fathers. A lot of the issues stem from the fact of if their Father showed them LOVE, said he LOVED them or if he was actually in their lives. During My 40+ years of life and having been in a number of relationships with Women from ALL walks of life one thing stands TRUE for ALL of them, if they had a Good relationship with their Father and he displayed to them what a LOVING, Caring Man should be to them, they possessed the ability to receive LOVE openly but on the other side of the coin, if their Father was not there for them or was there but did not display to them what a LOVING/Caring Man should be, they had issues with receiving LOVE openly, being vulnerable, knowing their roles as Women in a relationship and they carried years of unreleased anger with them.

Women, this is not your fault by any means, the blame falls upon the shoulders of the Fathers that did not or do not step up to the plate and be Fathers to their Daughters. Fathers, We have to stand up and take our places as the Fathers that GOD has blessed us to be to our Daughters and LOVE them like we are supposed to. We have to LOVE them, show them LOVE, tell them we LOVE them, live the example of a LOVING and Caring Man so that our Daughters will know what to look for in a Gentle-Man and not fall for every man that shows them attention, the wrong type of Man, know their TRUE worth as a Woman and know what LOVE really is.

I have made a pledge to GOD and Myself to be the Best Father I can be to My Daughters so that they won’t have
to have the issues that plague so many Women and causes their relationships to falter, not possessing the ability to openly receive LOVE. Fathers, we have to LOVE our Daughters because they will only LOVE how We LOVE them. Let’s prepare them for success in their relationships.

CHEESE…Everything Is Better With CHEESE On Top

CHEESE…Everything Is Better With CHEESE On Top

-‘A SMILE…Is it the Question or the Answer?’

                                    -Lee Smith

CHEESE…Who doesn’t LOVE CHEESE? All over a Pizza, on top of a ‘Mouth-Watering Burger,’ covering Eggs in the Morning, topping Toast, paired with Wine and Crusty Breads, entangled within Macaroni, as a Pool for foods to take a Swim in while Fondue Dipping or as a simple Snack. I don’t know of too many People that don’t LOVE CHEESE. It’s just So Good and in most cases ‘Good for You!’

As I ponder CHEESE and My LOVE for its ‘Pungent, Tart, Creamy, Sweetness’ it brings to Mind the idea of CHEESE in another sense…

You know that Image that We see upon People’s faces when they are Happy, Joyful, Elated, ‘Feeling Good…’ You know? When they are posing for a Picture, they Flash that part of them that Opens up their Hearts…You know, You hear it ALL of the time right before the Camera’s button is pushed or the Flash burst to capture the image, ‘Say…CHEESE!’ Yes…That’s it…The SMILE! Or as We so often refer to it, ‘CHEESING!’

A SMILE…Now, that is the CHEESE that I LOVE to see on Top more than any other type of CHEESE!

Me, Myself… I am a Naturally Smiling Person and I LOVE flashing a Smile at everyone that I meet because it shows that I am open to receiving Smiles and it also shows that I am not an Angry or Unhappy Person. As I go about Life and the Day to Day activities, meeting People in passing along the way, I notice that so many People wear Frowns or Perpetual ‘Mean Mugs’ on their faces instead of SMILES, moving Me to ask the question, ‘Is Life that Bad?’ ‘Is there something that these People know that I don’t that causes them to Frown instead of SMILE?’ ‘Am I Crazy for My LOVE of SMILING and wearing a SMILE?’ ‘Should I wear a Frown too?’ ‘What’s wrong with the World today?’ ‘Why are We so Angry?’ ‘Why won’t You SMILE?’

I guess I just don’t understand why People don’t want to project the BETTER side of themselves by SMILING or wearing a Happy or more Welcoming look upon their faces. We walk around in today’s Society as if We are Angry at everyone and everything, as if someone just told Us that things will never get any BETTER or as if We just Lost Our last Friend. Living this way makes it seem as if We are a Society of Unhappy individuals that are simply passing the Days away and not Enjoying the Moments that GOD gives Us. This alone should be reason to wear a SMILE instead of Frowning…

It used to be Proclaimed that ‘A SMILE is Contagious!’ If only that were TRUE today…

 

My Friend… My Reader….SMILE! Put some CHEESE on TOP!!! It’s so much BETTER to SMILE and allow Your face to Shine in the presence of others and have it say to them, ‘Hey! Life is Great! Here’s a SMILE for You! Enjoy it!’ and hopefully it will be as Contagious as the Flu, affecting Everyone for the BETTER!

‘I feel that a SMILE is the Answer to the Question…’

Al B. Sharp VS Wild, Wild West

Al B. Sharp VS Wild, Wild West!

‘Obama shouldn’t have to lead a Civil Rights March against Himself…’

-Rev. Al Sharpton

BIG Words. LOUD Words. FRUSTRATED Words. CONSTERNATING Words. WORDS from two of the Most Influential African-American Voices in America today. As I viewed the video of their exchange on MSNBC, it
brought to mind how divided We are as a Country and definitely as a race. Rev. Sharpton has his ideas and Dr. West has his. Who’s to say which of these two Voices is right or wrong, neither of them is really, but it comes down to who made the most logical point.

Rev. Sharpton spoke on how We should not place the blame on President Obama for the job market and the unemployment rate because it is not his fault. President Obama does not regulate the jobs, the people that own the companies and corporations are the ones that regulate and have the POWER to stimulate the job market. As President, all that Obama can do is try to PERSUADE these individuals to create jobs and bring about job market STIMULATION. Rev. Sharpton also made a valid point when he said, ‘The People need to stand up and make their Voices heard to the individuals with POWER over these companies instead of continually pointing the
finger at and blaming President Obama…But the TRUTH is that they are SCARED to do that…And, ‘If the People are SCARED, say that they are SCARED…’ because blaming Obama isn’t going to bring about the results that We seek.’
I feel, as Rev. Sharpton feels, that, President Obama is doing his best to make sure that things are done EQUALLY across the board for ALL People, not any specific race or group because this Country and Nation is a place of many Cultures, Races and Peoples, and as President he has to STAND for ALL not ONE…

Dr. West had some valid points as well but I noticed that most of his statements were a bit RACIALLY CHARGED. I mean, I am ALL about STANDING up for Ones Race or what One believes but this is simply not a matter of Race, this is a matter of Humankind as a Whole, the BETTERMENT of everyone. The unemployment rate in not just affecting African-Americans but every Race, it does not DISCRIMINATE and We should see it as such. Yes, there are times when it seems as if President Obama should have stood his ground when it came to certain topics but turning this into a ‘BLACK THING’ or a ‘RACIAL THING’ is not what is needed right now. The statements that Dr. West had about, ‘Critiquing President Obama…’ and ‘The number of Blacks that have been pulled over by Police in NY…’ and ‘Worrying about Rev. Sharpton being manipulated by the White House and PlutoCrats…,’ discuss those topics in other venues but not in this one. This should not be turned into a situation of, ‘We NOW have a Black or African-American President so We, Blacks, as a Race should be receiving Our ’40ACRES and A MULE!’ Our ‘REPARATIONS!’ And…Honestly, if We got them what would We do with them if We are IGNORANT of what to do with what We have been Blessed with at Present. Another thing is, ‘If ALL One wants is a Mule and some Acreage, their Goals and Aspirations are pretty Minimal!’

Both Rev. Sharpton and Dr. West have and continue to make Great contributions to Our Society, Country and the African-American Race through their beliefs and what they STAND for, and I ADMIRE and gain INSPIRATION from them both but with the topic or issue being unemployment and job market stimulation, the idea or job is to get Our Country not simply ‘Back On Track’ but on ‘The BEST Track its Ever Travelled ON,’ bringing about jobs and employment for ALL…EQUALLY…And, we will only achieve this feat by PERSUADING the People with the POWER over job market stimulation and not by Blaming or Pointing the Finger at Our President…

My Friend…My Reader…President Obama isn’t PERFECT and He’s doing what He can with the tools He’s provided…

Like Rev. Sharpton said, ‘Why should President Obama lead a Civil Rights March against Himself?’

‘Rev. Sharpton and Dr. West…Thank You both for the Words and the Inspiration. The work that You do is Priceless, Appreciated and Admirable.’
