Goodbye to an Icon…Whitney Houston

‎’GOD did not plan for any of Us to Live Forever. Death is a part of the process and HE allows Us to see or hear of it Daily. It’s a Sad day and a Shock when anyone passes on. And, One that was an Icon or Celebrity Saddens and Shocks so many because of their influence and reach that was so widespread…

A few hours ago We learned of the passing of a Beloved Celebrity and Talent, Whitney Houston and We ALL shared in a Moment of Pain learning of her Passing. She will be Greatly Missed by many and Always remembered…

Death will come to Us ALL in due time so, Live the BEST Life You can Right Now and do ALL that You can in Your Power to not press upon Your Life anything that could possibly shorten it.

To You, Whitney…We’ll Miss You and like You sang in Your song and like I Always say…’LOVE…It’s the GREATEST of ALL!’

Time Will Reveal…

Its Amazing to Me how people can come up with ALL types of excuses or reasons to justify their Sinning or Wrong Doing. For some reason many of Us seem to think that Jesus’ dying on the Cross gave Us FREE-REIGN to Sin as much as We like and then simply ask for Forgiveness and ALL will be ok and BEAUTIFUL with the World. This is So far from the TRUTH! Yes, its TRUE that GOD Forgives Us Our Sins but HE also tells Us in HIS Word, ‘Flee from Sin…Run from it…Keep as far away from Sin as You can…The wages of Sin is Death…,’ this to Me means that We should not Sin. And, Yes, We are ALL Sinners…Born into Sin…We have ALL Sinned and Fallen short but after We ask for Forgiveness of those Sins We are to keep away from those Sins that We have asked Frogiveness for. GOD LOVES Us and wants the best for US, HIS Children, but if We continue to choose Sin HE will have no choice but to discipline Us through HIS LOVE for Us. When We Sin or continue to choose Sin GOD never leaves Us, HE allows Us to have to deal with the consequences of Our Sins so that We will learn from them and hopefully, through Our ‘Consequence Learning’ We will choose to stay away from Sin. It is never GOD that leaves Us, it is Us that steps away from HIM to do as We please, by choosing Sin over Fleeing from Sin.

There are many that choose Sin and actually ask for Forgiveness during the actual committing of the Sin. Talk about CONTRADICTION! Thats Man for you, right?! How can One know that an act is Wrong in GOD’s Eyes, continue to take part in the act and ask Forgiveness ALL at the same time? I guess that individual feels that Sinning in this way makes the Sin a ‘Little White Sin.’ (What the Hell…)

My writing this post comes from reading more on the Bishop Eddie Long case and thinking of ALL of the individuals out there that have Sinned and are Sinning and might feel that their DARKNESS won’t have LIGHT Shined upon IT…Oh, My Friend, the time for Your Sin to be revealed is coming, just as everyone’s Sin in days past have been revealed. Be assured that if You have Sinned or are Sinning GOD will not and does not allow Sins to go unpunished. Whether We have a feeling that Our Sin is justified because it ‘Feels Good to Us’ or ‘Our Sin is out of Revenge or Anger’ or ‘We have asked Forgiveness during Our Sinning thinking that makes it Ok’ or ‘We have a LOFTY idea of who We are because of Our title or status’ or ‘We feel that the World owes Us something,’ the Sin that We commit will be Revealed and GOD will allow Us to deal with the consequences until We learn from those Sins, no matter how long Our learning or disciplining takes. 

My Friend, We have ALL Sinned and most of Us will continue to Sin, for One reason or another but GOD is continually calling to Us to choose to ‘Flee from Sin…’ so that HE won’t have to discipline Us and so that We won’t have to deal with those consequences that We Truly don’t want to have to deal with from the start.

I’m continually checking Myself …What are You doing to Flee from Sin? Or are You choosing to Sin because You feel You have Free Reign to do it?

Yellow Tape and White Chalk

YELLOW TAPE & WHITE CHALK…
-‘Yellow Police Tape and White Chalk outlining fallen bodies have become Our ‘NATIONAL’ Landmarks…’

-FATHER MICHAEL LOUIS PFLEGER (Speaking on Violence in Our Society)

The other Morning as I awakened to an Overcast Sky looking down upon Me from outside the Window, arising and stretching to awaken My limbs to take the trek downstairs to the kitchen, to add Coffee grounds to the innards of the Coffee maker so as to enjoy My Morning cup of Coffee that I look forward to every AM after its journey through the intestines of the Coffee maker, marrying with the Steaming hot H2O, being transformed from grounds to Chocolaty, liquid Pleasure, from the Carafe to My cup, I sat and peered out of the Window and said to Myself, ‘Overcast out…but still Beautiful!’

With My ‘Writer’s Journal’ and laptop in front of Me, I powered on the computer and went through the motions of logging on to the ever-so-AMAZING internet and upon arrival at My Yahoo! Homepage
I began to scan the Morning’s TOP stories. Reading and scrolling through the ‘highlights,’ I was saddened at the number of stories that I read about teen Violence, Violence period, and lives being taken, whether by Gun Violence or some other form of Violence. Instantly, My mind went to the Families and LOVED Ones of
these individuals who’s Lives had been stripped from them by another and somewhat imagining how they felt…Hurt. Heartbroken. Robbed. Helpless. Angry. Upset. Baffled. Confused. Down Right Ready to Hurt someone like they themselves Hurt at that moment…

It wasn’t Myself that was going through the loss of a LOVED One through Violence at the moment but I became ANGRY, actually ‘MAD as Hell,’ as I sat and thought about the senseless Violence that We witness every single day of Our Lives. It’s Ridiculous! It seems that a Human Life isn’t worth a Penny in today’s Society/World. We commit these senseless acts of Violence with no regard of others, how they will feel,
what it does to them and how it affects their Lives, how it affects Our Lives. We are so Hell-Bent on Self and ‘instant GRATIFICATION,’ what We WANT and appeasing Our ANGER, that stopping to THINK and making a decision that will not cause PAIN to another or ourselves doesn’t even become an option.

We ask the question, ‘What Species of Animal is the most Dangerous or Most Savage?’ And, the answer is staring Us right in the Face from the reflection in the Mirror. ‘US!’ We can take a look at other Species of Animal and notice that they kill for very few reasons. Protection of their offspring and territory, to have food for the progression of their Species and to defend self but take a look at the reasons We kill or take the
Lives of others, Envy, Greed, Jealousy, MONEY, Material, Covetousness, Illegal Drugs, Dislike, Differing Beliefs, Retaliation, Associations, Defense and a plethora of others. ALL of which are ‘senseless,’ unless you speak about defending Oneself and even then a Life doesn’t have to be taken to defend…

‘How long will We continue in this way?’ ‘How long before We say, ‘Enough is Enough,’ when it comes to Violence?’ ‘How
much Pain do We have to endure to wake up?’ ‘How many of Our Brothers and Sisters have to DIE for Us to stand up for what is Right?’ ‘How many stories do We have to read in the News about senseless Violence before we decide that WE
won’t accept it as News that We want to read anymore?’ ‘ How many Tears have to be shed by Family members and LOVED Ones left behind before We are truly motivated to put a STOP to the Craziness?’ ‘When will We cease the Genocidal
Violence on those of Our races?’ ‘When will a Life mean ‘something’ again?’ ‘How…?’ ‘When…?’

Yellow Police Tape and White Chalk Outlining Fallen Bodies can no longer be Our National Landmarks…
My Friend…My Reader…How do you feel about this?

(This topic will be revisited later…)

Our Tears…

I came across this poem and I just had to share it… Enjoy!

 

Do our tears taste

Like rain drops

Are our broken Hearts

Healed by Cupid         

Are our lost Dreams

Found by others

Are our old Lovers

Always a part of us

Even as we swim up into

New and present ones

Are our past hurts

Meant to be played over and over

Again in our minds

Like our favorite movie or song

I ponder these things

As I cry

Broken Hearted

Cupid, with bow and arrow ready, flying overhead

My Dreams tapping me on the shoulder

Longing for an old Lover’s touch

Past hurts haunting me and set to replay

Thinking of You…
