Here's one of my favorite poems I wrote when I was 17yrs young(;.

Enjoy poetry lovers!

My Musical Ecstasy Ride

When I think of music, I feel its rush 

The urge for me to sing

 My inner companion whom I trust 

Coming from deep inside of me 

 Flowing through my veins it inspires me

 Even to a baby a lullaby song that is whispered almost to a hush.

I see it

I live it 

I love it 

I dream it 

I feel it 

It's within me 

Being captivated by it, enraptured in its fineness, drowning in its depths of meaning like the sea

 Its beauty is engulfing, the grandeur of its nature;glamour, thoughts, fiction or hardcore reality

A lyrical poem or haiku

A novel or letter

A Picasso or Pollock

All of which still tells a story

Be it

Know it 

accept it 

Show it 

A composer, songwriter, an audience way of escaping life’s worries

The rhythm, a beat, the note, and a key;whom are all corporate to my swaying body and voice as I sing.

Feet patting

Hands clapping

Finger snapping

Head swinging

Heart beating

Faster and faster as the rhythm start seeping

 Out of the speaker and in to your skin

 into your ears as you listen

Have your mind running wild as you want more 

Now your soul is hearkening, begging, calling; addicted to its allure

Whether it’s Rap, old school, and Hip-hop; as your head bops and car rocks

Classical, Country, and Pop; with orchestras, cowboy hats, spandex short skirts and tube tops.

Jazz, Neo-soul, Blues, and R&B; Happy In love, Falling in love, or heart broken while listening to the mellow rhythms and beats.  

Opera, Gospel, and Rock N Roll; voices of soprano to basso, songs of Amazing Grace, and dying your hair red, black, & gold

 However, God is the center of my music note. 

 Your music 

 My music 

 His music

 Her music 

 Their music 

 Our music

 It’s music ,lets use it!

 For the better, not the worse.

 Just listen to it!

Watch as it captures you and take you for a ride 

 Stranded in a place where your mind resides

 Imagining what and where you should, could, would, and want to be

 As you drift into a constant state of the reminiscing of memories

 This is the kind of high that makes me feel like I can fly

 Music in my DNA

 My shining Knight at the end of a long hard day 

 My lover and my friend 

 A companion to the end

 It will never leave my side 

Never will I shed a tear and cry because it walked out of the door and left a bitter goodbye.

 It is in my heart where my God resides

Never will I get off my musical ecstasy ride.

Because EVERYDAY should be filled with something simple, sweet, pure and PINK! -->“Here's to the moments when you realize the simple things are wonderful and enough.” “I don't know why it so happens in life that one absolutely can't do something simple but important.” “Simple and plain things can touch your heart very easily! If you can be simple and plain, you can touch every heart!”-Jill Badonsky
Happy Wednesday, lovelies!

Happy New Year, Friends!

I know it feels like FOREVER since you’ve heard from me, but if you follow me on Social Media then you knw that I still have LOTS to say. Lol! Anywho, I know that you guys are like “where’s our new posts?” “When are you getting back on Youtube?” I know. I know. I know. I had also planned to have "My Passion God’s Purpose" blog and Youtube up and thriving again this New Year. However, those plans drastically changed—yet, for the better. As of this year, I’ve made the decision to ....

There's no greater enemy that you'll ever fight nor face than the enemy that lives within. Truth is, we give life to what we speak AND what we think! And although we can not control what thoughts enter our minds; we CAN decide whether or not we want to come into AGREEMENT with it by our decision or the lack thereof to meditate on it and accept it as TRUTH. But do you really want to know the truth? TRUTH IS, you can be whomever you want to be. You can do whatever you want to do. You can go wherever you want to go. And you can see the things others will never see. However, it all BEGINS in the garden of your THOUGHTS--it begins with what you think!

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another. (: "The whole Torah exists only to
establish peace.
Its highest teaching is love and
kindness.
Love the L-rd your G-d with all your
heart and what is hateful to you do
not do to any person.
That is the whole Torah. Go and
learn it, honoring one another,
doing acts of kindness and making
peace. These are our highest duties."
~A generous man will prosper. He who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.

​Not very long ago as I was in worship, I began to feel my emotions being stirred and this feeling of sorrow began to come over me. Immediately I began to ask the Holy Spirit "who is this for," because it's not abnormal for me to pick up others emotions that are close to me or individuals  that might be in the same  vicinity as I.  So as I continue to consult the Holy Spirit concerning why I'm experiencing what I'm experiencing, I began to weep. I began to weep from the deepest parts within me. You know, the cry that makes you #UglyCry. Well, as I continue to yield to it, the Holy Spirit shows me whom I'm interceding for and then He says, "your tears are opening the heavens." I began to get excited and filled with immense joy because I had been petitioning the L-RD for breakthrough and restoration in this particular area of my life for well over a year. In that very moment I knew that God had intervened and He was setting the scene to reclaim what the enemy was trying so desperately and ruthlessly to steal from me. Little bit by little bit the L-RD is showing me how He is redeeming that which seemed hopeless, lost and in complete ruins. After all, His promise to me still stood. That He would fill my mouth with laughter and my lips with shouts of joy.And that my enemies will be clothed in shame and the tents of the wicked will be no more(Job 8:21-22). So my friend, this is a word for you too as I've seen in the last week or so many prophetic voices echo THE EXACT SAME THING, and therefore, I know that we are in a season of restoration and restitution-double for your trouble.  SO,  as you feel the Holy Spirit moving on you in this type of intercession--yield to it ( Romans 8:26). Your tears are getting the attention of Heaven and G-d is moving in and taking up your cause. *In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.-Romans 8:26 *Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them. Psalm 126:6

I will not DM nor EMAIL you, your ministry, business and/or non-profit asking for advice or opportunities. I will NOT discuss others with you nor personal information regarding myself (hobbies, likes, dislikes, etc). I will not send you pictures, recordings or anything of the sort of myself, family or ANYONE whatsoever. Neither will I try and befriend you or ingratiate myself into your good graces/life--- these things happen organically.  For a little over 41/2 yrs, I've experienced extreme levels of my privacy violated by some in whom I do not know and others that were once a part of my life whom I had decided I no longer wanted a part of my life and therefore tried to break ties with amicably. I guess I  don't need to say it didn't go over well since the proof is in the pudding. So, for a little over 41/2 yrs my life has not been my own as I've had to share it with individuals who have no regard for privacy or others. Individuals whom don't like to take "no" for an answer. Individuals whom insist on being in my life regardless of my refusal.  Needless to say, these haven't been the easiest 41/2 for my family and I.The difficult thing about hacking,  cyberbullying and cyber-stalking is that it's difficult to prove ESPECIALLY when the perpetrators are sophisticated in their techniques and have made a career out of violating and harassing others. I'm no victim, I'm a victor, BUT, cyber-stalking is NOT okay. Cyberbullying is NOT okay---it's ALL abuse. And, abuse is NEVER okay! So, what can you do? You can speak up, report it and /or ignore it.  If you receive messages from me and have my number you can verify that it was indeed I whom you spoke with.  Nevertheless,  I will continue to work diligently to bring this situation to a resolve and I ask that for all those whom reads this please join me in prayer--which is one of the most powerful ways to bring situations like these to a resolve. I believe the scriptures are true and therefore, I stand on Luke 6:27,28 "but I tell you who hear me:Love your enemies,  do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray to those who mistreat you." So, to YOU who feels the need to INCESSANTLY violate my privacy: I will not pray that you fall into the pit that you've made. Neither will I pray for you to reap what you've sown, although those are tried & true  spiritual laws. Instead , I pray that God will truly capture your heart and that you would encounter HIM in such a magnificent way that it would leave you forever transformed,  set free and delivered by the saving power of His right hand. May God save your souls and transform your minds. Blessings & Shalom.  Thank You!

Stop expecting integrous behaviour from those whose character is in the negative. When people show you who they are, BELIEVE THEM! Forgive them for their wrongdoing, but allow them no seat at your "life table." They don't deserve it! Free yourself of their baggage. Stop getting high off of what they provide. And rid yourself of their toxic supply! Be free in 2018!
Happy Fri-YAY, lovelies!💜

Chag Sameach, lovelies!

As you dip your apples in honey(or agave 😊) on tonight, and as the sound of the shofar heralds us into a new year, I pray that you forget the tears from yesteryear. Give forgiveness and receive forgiveness. Release the pains, mistakes and stormy days. Free your mind. Free your heart. Find solace in knowing that you are worthy, capable, adored, one-of-a-kind and deserving of the "so much more" that the Father desires to pour out over your life. "G-D does not remain in debt. For every good thing a person does he is recompensed grandly by G-d, with children, health and livelihood, in abundance."-Hayom Yom
✡ May HaShem shower His blessings of good health, happiness, prosperity and peace on you and yours.
Shana tova!
