Come Home Black Man...

Come home Black man...
You who are searching for truth only to find recycled lies.

Come home Black man...
You who are struggling for release only to be burdened down by the strain of life.

Come home Black man...
You whose cynicism and doubt have bankrupt your faith.

Come home Black man...
You who are brokenhearted, disrespected, and devalued.

Come home Black man...
You who have abandoned your destiny and surrendered to an erroneous fate.

Come home to true love - pure, warm, and complete
Come home to the everlasting gleam of divine light.
Come home to the ultimate sage and the greatest of all mysteries.
Come home to the grace of forgiveness and true liberation.

Come home Black man ...
Come home! God is waiting patiently for your triumphant return.

To My Sisters in the Lord.....

There comes a time in every woman's life when she has to take a close look at herself. Not at her circumstance, not at what she did, not how unfair life is, or at who made you do it. She has to just look at herself...

Have you ever admired a woman who has been through changes in her life? Or have you made up in your mind that she is just messed up? Before you make this mistake, take a closer look. A woman who has endured the most unusual life is someone of wisdom, someone who has been chosen by God to go through things that have made her stronger.

Think of all the great women in the Bible: Mary Magdalene, Ruth and Naomi, the woman with an issue of blood, and Esther, to name a few.
Mary was a prostitute, a very uneasy woman. But by the time Jesus was done with her, she was His closest follower. Esther was unfortunate in marrying an abusive man, but by the time God was done with her, she had married one of the wealthiest men in the land!

Women are so quick to beat the next one down instead of trying to hold her up.
Before you wonder, ' What's up with her?' ask yourself, 'What's up with me?'
That woman could be my mother, sister, aunt, in-law, stepmother, niece, grandmother, great-grandmother, neighbor, friend, or co-worker. That woman could be ME.

Women are the carriers of life, not the channels of death. Let's build and encourage each other, as did Ruth and Naomi. Share this with all the women in your life.

Encourage and love, forgive and forget, and trust that the woman that receives this message will be touched in some way!

A drunken man was in an Oldsmobile they said had run the light that caused the six-car pile up on Highway 109 that night. When broken bodies lay about and blood was everywhere, the sirens screamed out eulogies, for death was in the air.

A mother trapped inside her car was heard above the noise. Her plaintive pleas near split the air, "Oh, God, please spare my boys," she cried! As she fought to loose her pinned hands, she struggled to get free, but mangled metal held her fast in grim captivity. Her frightened eyes then focused on where the back seat once had been, but all she saw was broken glass and two children's seats crushed in. Her twins were nowhere to be seen, she did not hear them cry and then she prayed they'd been thrown free, "Oh, God, don't let them die!

Then firemen came to cut her loose, but when they searched the back they found therein no little boys, but the seat belts were intact. They thought the woman had gone mad and was traveling alone, but when they turned to question her they discovered she was gone.

Policemen saw her running wild and screaming above the noise in beseeching supplication,"Please help me find my boys! They're four years old and wear blue shirts. Their jeans are blue to match." One cop spoke up, "They're in my car, and they don't have a scratch. They said their daddy put them there, and gave them each a cone. Then told them both to wait for Mom to come and take them home. I've searched the area high and low , but I can't find their dad. He must have fled the scene,I guess, and that is very bad."

The mother hugged the twins and said, while wiping at a tear,"He could not flee the scene, you see for he's been dead a year." The cop just looked confused and asked, "Now, how can that be true?" The boys said, "Mommy, Daddy came and left a kiss for you. He told us not to worry and that you would be all right. And then he put us in this car with the pretty, flashing light. We wanted him to stay with us because we miss him so, but Mommy, he just hugged us tight and said he had to go. He said someday we'd understandand and told us not to fuss. And he said to tell you, Mommy, He's watching over us."

The mother knew without a doubt that what they spoke was true. For she recalled their dad's last words, "I will watch over you." The firemen's notes could not explain the twisted, mangled car and how the three of them escaped without a single scar. But on the cop's report was scribed in print so very fine,"An angel walked the beat tonight on Highway 109."
