Morning

Good Morning World...
Thank GOD for another day.

The Quote for today comes from another One of my Facebook friends, who is also like family.
Thanks to Tori Richardson for this one:

wherever you are in your life right now, that is where u are supposed to be. No need to question why things are the way they are, everything has its purpose. Keep pressing on and believing...sooner or later the answer will reveal itself. Until that time comes, keep smiling because u r blessed!

Marvin "Sonny" and Rose....The Cookout






Hey World...
What's goin on?

Yesterday, my cousin Marvin and his Wife Rose had their Annual Cookout in Far Rockaway , NY.
As always I usually am booked with a wedding or other event on that date.
I talked to Marvin in April, and he asked me not to BOOK anything on that date.

I am SO glad we went, and I think i will be attending from NOW on.

My mom brother and sister came up from Virginia, and we all rode together in my truck.

So for all who are interested in seeing the photos from "The Cookout"

Atlantic City

I can't believe how PEACEFUL it is just RELAXING on the BEACH.
NICE BREEZE

Morning

Good Morning World...
Thank GOD for another day.

Wanda and I are on our way to Atlantic City on the BUS.
I wanted to drive, but she convinced me to just sit back and ENJOY a RELAXING ride.

It turns out that it's a pretty good deal.
We paid $35 each for tickets, and we are going to HILTON CASINO which gives you $30 cash for coming down.
So it is actually $5 roundtrip.

Thank God we don't GAMBLE!
We are just going to walk the Boardwalk and sit on the BEACH.

Of course I have a CAMERA...LOL

Have A Blessed Day

Quote for the day comes from me:

When you awaken in the MORNING, and your previous DAY or NIGHT was filled with STRESS, or PAIN, or SADNESS, or SORROW....

REMEMBER that you are still here, and GOD has given you another chance to make a DIFFERENCE in SOMEONES LIFE.

So DON'T COMPLAIN about what you may or may not HAVE.

Give GOD THANKS............and SAAAANG!!!!!! (SING)

Good Morning

Good Morning World...
Thank GOD for another day

I have started my vacation today, and I am not really going anywhere.
Trying to set myself up for some Fall Photography.

So I will be going to different schools all week to possibly set up some work.

While on Facebook this morning I came across 2 very inspirational pieces of information from two of my FB friends.

I decided to post them both to my blog today as the "Quotes for the Day"
One is from Nakita Cook Young/ "The Good In Me"
The other is from Casey Washington/ "Will's Wisdom"

Thank you both for sharing with ME...and I hope WE can all CHANGE the WORLD by SHARING with OTHERS

Enjoy...and Have A Blessed Day!!!





"The Good In Me"
Nakita Cook Young

I’m celebrating the good in me; I’m doing all the good things that keeps my soul light and my heart feeling free and if that’s clapping my hands, stomping my feet or singing off key – so be it!

I am no longer going to live skeptically from this point on I’m moving through this life with certainty with my mind made up, walking straight and tall with my head held high and freedom from doubt.;

I ‘m taking a break from all the worries of the world and letting the good life rain down on me by opening my heart and soul to all of life’s sweet melodies – the sun, the moon, the stars and the wind blowing through trees;

I ‘m taking my life back from the crypt keeper and casting out all the impurities and letting the joy, happiness, love, laughs that dwell within me unfold and be my shield from the skeleton grim reaper;

My heart is now in the right place and it will take me far and lead through the marvels and wonders of life to my destiny as I celebrate the goodness that lives within me.

I LOVe IT...

Good Morning World...The Invitation


Wanda and I /Baltimore Harbour

Good Morning World...
Thank GOD for another day.

Today I want to leave you a message that was e-mailed to me about 10 years ago.
I found it in one of my backup discs on Tuesday.
It is called "The Invitation"

In essence it is saying....it does not matter who you are, or what title you may have.
If you can survive a situation with ONLY what God has given you...You are Blessed.

Enjoy this reading, and Have A Blessed Day:

The Invitation

It Doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.

I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your hearts longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are

I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being Alive

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your Moon

I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s
betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from the fear of further pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your
own, without moving to hide it, fade it, or fix it.

I want to know if you can sit with joy, if you can
dance with the wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true

I want to know if you can disappoint another to be
true to yourself, if you can bear the accusation of betrayal, and non betray your own soul, if you can be faithless, and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see beauty, even when its
pretty, everyday, and if you can source your own life from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure, yours
and mine, and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the moon, “Yes”!

it doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have,
I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done to feed the children

It doesn’t interest me to know who you know or how you came to be here

I want to know If you will stand In the center of the fire with me and not shrink back
It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what
sustains you, from the inside, when all else falls away

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in empty moments

Quote of the Day


"Pick battles big enough to matter, small enough to win" The flip side of "don't sweat the small stuff" is fighting for things we care about. At the same time, we should try to avoid battles we have absolutely no chance of wi...nning. Things that help us be the person we most want to be are the things worth fighting for. Those that don't have much impact, or that may even detract from our best self, need to be let go.

Thanks to my co-worker Barbara for this thoughtful quote
