Recently, I saw a program on PBS featuring Eric Clapton in concert. I never knew anything about his music but suddenly I was captivated by his songs and the passion in which he sang. Hanging on his every word with joy touched my soul, Mr. Clapton sang the song called Tears in Heaven. He gives through his music and we receive the benefits. If you ever want to get a glimpse of what living with passion and dedication is all about, check out people who sing for a living, play sports, musicians, dancers, or anyone who is truly committed to their intention. I was in awe as he drew me into the moment. His dedication to his art all these years is truly inspiring for all who attends his concerts. Continue reading “LIVING WITH PASSION”

Rubbernecking Delays

traffic2Have you ever been on a highway backed up by traffic for miles? Ever wonder, what’s the hold up? Slowly you crawl as time ticks away and frustration starts to build. When you finally arrive at the point of curiosity, a police officer has pulled a motorist to the side of the road or there is road work being done and everyone is beginning to slow down while gawking  thus causing rubbernecking delays. At times, it’s something very serious but that’s few and far in between in most cases. After sitting in a car for hours, extremely agitated by the turn of events that unfolded, you finally arrive late to your desired destination. Sounds eerily familiar as I believe this scene is all too common to those of us who drive day after day. Continue reading “Rubbernecking Delays”



Accepting your past mistakes is not an easy venture, especially if you’re not exactly happy with your previous history. We all wish at some point we can go back in time and do over some part of our life. However that is not God’s wish for the valuable lessons you are learning along the way. Press on, keep moving forward, forgive yourself and refresh the life you are now living. Have a willingness to tolerate a difficult or unpleasant situation as you move steadily towards your goals. With God all things are possible if you’re willing to believe.



Before a word is uttered on my tongue,

Help me lord to overcome,

 Let me think before I speak,

when speaking life to those I meet,

I am truly sorry for the words I’ve said

In anger to others

Who needs to be led,

Help me know what to say

when my words go astray

and indignation comes my way,

Teach me your truth,

While I read your good book,

I will continue to take a closer look.

I’ll stand in your peace

By not being a beast,

Please allow my love for others to increase

Search me, O Lord, and know my heart

For you have known me from the start,

Cleanse and change me,

from all that I am,

You know my name and that’s where I’ll stand,

In silence, meditating and listening to your word,

with God right beside me, never being deterred

Create a clean heart in me

to be all I can be,

So my words won’t defeat me,

for I totally trust in thee

I choose to speak life for the rest of my life,

Believing and hoping to live a life of less strife.
