Loneliness sets a trap
For the flesh to fall in

Starve the flesh
Feed the spirit

Lord, provide a way out

Don't want to yield
Want to yield
Don't want to yield

Loneliness sets a trap
For the flesh to fall in

taking steps
forward march
blinders on

the flesh that I am
the flesh I can be
will make u-turns
turn left
turn right
how did I get here?
got to focus
one foot in front
step step

so you stray away
start again
forward march
blinders on

More to come!

Hey everyone,

Yesterday was another step in  promoting my book "Smoothies for the Soul".  I did a promo.  An advertisement  for on-line viewing.  When its done, it will be shown here, on facebook and hopefully on my website(in the making). God said that the book will take care of itself but faith without work is dead.  So I am doing everything to promote knowing that it will take off! Fly!!!

I recorded a few of my poems. The idea is to use my voice and to read as many poems from my book as possible in the allowed time. Of course eloquence was in place! Endure (page 138) was chosen.  Although it was an audio promo, I felt like a movie star. Take one! Action! Over and over again!  So much fun! God is working!!

I have discover for some time an amazing tea, Organic Chai Tea. Actually my daughter drinks it. I tried it and fell in love! I told a friend of mine that I drink it with brown sugar.  He said to try it with sugar in the raw.  To get the ultimate favor, I boil the teabag and one teaspoon of sugar!  Try it and let me know your results.

oh...oh.. A cup of desire!!!!

Oh, did I tell you that I am now jogging 5 miles. My goal of jogging 5 miles at the end of 2011 was not met, but the first week of January I was able to accomplished it. I want to jog 6 days a week. Work in progress! Forward jog!

My Birthday! My Worship! My Celebration!

Hey everyone,
 To bring in my Birthday yesterday, I asked my facebook friends to send me Gospel music  so I can be in motion, praising God in song and dance when I turned 51. I started worshiping and praising God at 11pm until 1am.  I pray that it was very pleasing to God.  All the Glory belongs to Him!
I want to thank all those who send in music.  I appreciate it so much!!
These songs Blessed me:

"Well Done" by Deitrick Haddon!!! When I stand before God I want to hear "Well Done!"

"It all belongs to You" by Damita Haddon!!!! Lord, I belong to You!

"I Smile" by Kirk Franklin!!!  No matter what, I am smiling!

"Give myself away" and "Here I am to worship" by William McDowell!!!!  My walk!
"Dear God" by Smokie Norful!!!  I thank You Lord for my life!

And here is the Birthday Girl!!!!  Embracing 51...Hitting the ground jogging!
