one mo #random gospel outburst

Its short but again, straight to the point....I just wish I has the whole thing

this right encourages me to continue to serve the Lord

the lost fathers day card (LOL)

My youngest daughter made me a card for fathers day.....but forgot where she put it. She just found it to day and gave it to me and it said:

If I was the president, I would ask my dad to save the world. To me my dad is a lifesaver. He's a cool dad, and sweet and strong. He is my superhero..
The reason why I'd pick my dad is because he's tall and has a heart like a superhero. He's strong and brave.

If there were real superheroes, my dad would be one

happy fathers day...I Love you

I told her that its things like this that mean more to me than anything you could buy me from the store....

( I almost cried yall )

this song has A LOT of sentimental meaning to me. Remembering as a child maybe 4 or 5 years old my mom woke me and my younger sisters up to go to my aunt's house while she worked & went to school, and every morining at 5 I'd hear this on the clock radio.....

And the lyrics had so much meaning behind them....

(Be-e-e-e-e-e Grateful)
(Be-e-e-e-e-e Grateful)
God has not promised me sunshine
That's not the way it's going to be
But a little rain (A little rain)
Mixed with God's sunshine
A little pain (A little pain)
Makes me appreciate thegood times

God desires to feel your longing
Every pain that you feel
He feels them just like you (Just like you)
But he had to die to make you feel only good (Only good)
Then you can appreciate the good times

Be-e-e-e-e-e Grateful) Be Grateful
Because there's someone else who's worse off than you
Be Grateful (Be Grateful)
Because there's someone else who'd love to be in your shoes

but this was more than just a song (at least to me) but one of the many life lessons my mom always taught to me and the rest of my brothers and sisters throughout our life until her untimely passing back in Feb, 2009

be grateful in everything

even though she's not here to read this, I hope she knew that I was listening when she was always tellin me the same thing that the Hawkins Singers was try'na to tell us in their song....

Holiday Dinner, the good, the bad, and the NASTY!!!

you know what I hate about Holidays? The food.

I never was a big "soul food" eater, and before sum'a yawl with the dumb questions: "what? ALL black people eat soul food, whats wrong with you?" and my personal favorite: "you sure you black?"

Imma add a brief side note right quick...(Before I came to know God both dumb questions would have recieved an even more ig'nant reply laced with more than a few cusswords.)

But anyway back to the story. As we all know every holiday from New Years day, all the way back to Christmas families gather together to that one house that hosts with a huge meal prepared for the friends and family invited (or not invited, but show up anyway. But that's another topic for another blog LOL). And that meal consists of the following

Greens (collard or mustard)
Sweet Potaoes

cranberry sauce
.....and the Dressing

I think I named all the foods right? Oh wait I almost forgot the Chitterlings, aka Chit'lins aka NASTEE than 2 muggs. Some may ask "How can you think they're nasty? Don't you know this is a delicasy for black people?" As my wife asked me whe she cooked some when we was first married and I repeatedly declined. But she insisted and I tried it and my theory was right.


chitterlings Pictures, Images and Photos

even with hot sauce, as my wife said to put on it but guess what? that aint help either Because now they taste like s**t with hot sauce on it.

Now I'm aware of the fact that when our ancestors were enslaved, they pretty much had little to no choice to what they ate, so they had to make something from nothing, which was the scraps from the food that the slave masters didnt want. And I also know If I had lived back then more than likely either I'd be eatin that mess along with em but then lookin the way I look I might have been in the house.

(judge me if you want to LOL)

But Let me say this much, being that I dont like "soul food" does not make me any less "black" and I thank God for the strength of our forefathers that paid a price and sacrificed so much so generations later we would have to. So in the meantime I'll watch the clock and pariently wait until the soul food season is over, of at least until the next one and the STANK of the chit'lins is out my house.
