Mine Eyes Have Seen

"Well, I don’t know what will happen now; we’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now, because I’ve been to the mountaintop. And I don’t mind. 

Like anybody, I would like to live a long life -- longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land. And so I’m happy tonight; I’m not worried about anything; 

I’m not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord"

Hold On

"Yesterday, a man step to me, he said how can you smile when your world is crumbling down. I said, here's my secret, when I want to cry, I take a look around and I see that I'm getting by, and I hold on."

"Hold on, a change is coming.
Hold on, don't you worry, don't worry bout a thing.
Hold on, you can make it.
Hold on, everything will be alright".

When the troubles of life weigh you down, just lift your head.
When the love you seek is hard to find, don't give up, just keep strong, keep ther faith and ... Hold on!

My Happiness Is

"Whoever is happy will make others happy, too."

"The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for."

Meet Happy, the source of my happiness. I love playing with him, teaching him to say no to drugs, the alphabets and new dance moves.

Three Little Birds

"I heard about this little tale long time ago
but never had the faith to believe in my soul.
Now mother nature sent to me three little birds, 
singing a song convincing me it was so.
Now I'm on my way, anyone come to see me this day,
tell them I'll be gone for the day.

I'll be down by the river,
waiting for the good Lord to pass my way
I'll be down by the river,
singing songs of joy on this lovely day"

The Harder They Come

Well, the obstacles of life is trying to keep me down, trying to drive me underground. And they think that they have got the battle won, I say forgive them Lord, they know not what they've done. I'll keep on fighting for the things that I want, though I know when you're dead you can't. But I'd rather be a free man in my grave, than living as a puppet or a slave.

So as sure as the sun will shine, I'm gonna get my share now of what's mine.
And then the harder they come the harder they'll fall, one and all.

I've got a hard road to travel and a rough way to go.
But I can't turn back, my heart is fixed. My mind's made up, I'll never stop.
My faith will see me through.

Today, the sun was shining, the weather was sweet
make you want to move your dancing feet.

After ten days straight, two o.t. and one triple shift, I was off on cloud nine.
Paid bills and commission, met 2A's Mom for the first time, met Jason, spoke with John, Mom & Dad, Sis on the cell phone. 
Texted...g and spoke...y

Now planning a week of fun and laughter. 
I am blessed for another day of sun shinning within.
Soca party, to the max, here I come!

Faith Lead Me On

"Sitting here in limbo, but I know it won't be long
Sitting here in limbo, like a bird without a song
Well, they're putting up resistance
But I know that my faith will lead me on

Sitting here in limbo, waiting for the dice to roll
Sitting here in limbo, got some time to search my soul
Well they're putting up resistance
But I know that my faith will lead me on

I don't know where life will lead me
But I know where I've been
I can't say what life will show me
But I know what I've seen
Tried my hand at love and friendship
But all that is passed and gone
This little boy is moving on"

Try and Try, Try and Try

"Rome was not built in a day
opposition will come your way
but the harder the battle you see
is the sweeter the victory.

You can get it if you really want
but you must try, try and try
you'll succeed at last.

Persecution you must fear
win or lose you got to get your share
you've got your mind set on a dream
you can get it though hard it may seem now.

If you really want it, you must try, you'll succeed at last."

-- Jimmy Cliff
