  1. Never Would Made It - Marvin Sapp
  2. Honey - Erykah Badu

  10. Heaven Sent - Keyshia Cole
Now of course some of these are due to my teens playing music on pc but I actually like all the ones listed. I also love the new Kelly Rowland featuring Travis McCoy song Daylights but I haven't checked for it on iTunes yet (they get almost as much of my dollars as digi community does!!!). As far as genres go I love all different kinds...from Tupac to Elton John, from Celine Dion to Enya...I can't pick just one. In fact I can probably pick a favorite artist from every type of music...the only thing I can say I really don't listen to is Electronica/Techno....

Tue 3/25 Blog Prompt

DSP Prompt
various family shots and journaling about the pictures

All of these pictures are from my relatives in Cincinnati. Its been almost a year since I have seen them and boy do I miss them....but pictures do help some...
These are my lil cousins....their mom was murdered two years ago and it hurts me to see how grown up they are getting and how much I miss their mom. They both for different reasons remind me of her when we were growing up together.

These are two more of my lil cousins. Their mom took a 14 year break between children. We all thought that her daughter Bree would be the only child....and up pops lil Tyrin! He is an adorable sweet baby who looks just like his mommy and big sister when they were babies.

here is my lil cousin Quan...he was first great grandson born ...after 4 he was QUITE spoiled. I can't believe he is old enough for his voice to change!!

These three are the youngest of the cousins....Shayla, Shiya and DJ. Their daddy is my cousin and is 8 years younger than me. I can hardly believe he is the father of three!!! The youngest Shayla shares the same middle name Ylonne as my youngest daughter Zaniyah. They were both named for his sister Tahnee Ylonne Jackson. RIP dearest cousin and sister of my heart. Believe me when I say that you are loved and missed greatly.

Never would Have Made It

I have been going through a hard time this week. I had to quit my job. I found out that three of the guys who started after me who have less experience AND less education got raises and I did not. I know that I did a better job than all three of them AND have better customer service skills. I felt very devalued for a while. I had to pray about it and finally just leave the company. I am stepping out on faith that the opportunity that is meant for me is right around the corner~ Any way during this difficult time, a good friend sent me this link and I just could not stop watching it. It is such a powerful performance and the song is one of my favorite gospel songs!

Marvin Sapp Never Would Have Made It


here are excerpt from lyrics
I would have lost it all,
But I now I see how you were there for me and I can say
I'm stronger, I'm wiser, I'm better,
much better,

When I look back over all you brought me thru.
I can see that you were the one that I held on to
And I never
Chorus Never would have made it

I hope that sharing this will brighten someone's day like it did mine.
