Verse of the Day – Psalm 27:1

I am inspired to share this beautiful piece from “The Bottom of a Bottle” blog. I hope that you are inspired as much as I am. Enjoy!

The Bottom of a Bottle

Psalm 27:1 Psalm 27:1

Fear drove me to a life in darkness, yet His grace brought me out into His light.

LIGHT OF THE WORLD by JESUS CULTURE
Love came down
In flesh you walked among us
Bore our sins
To death you rose victorious
Bursting from the grave you rose
Glorious

Light of the world
Even death could not contain
Darkness’ spell
It was defeated that day

Perfect life
Shining down upon us
We are free
In him we are victorious

Light of the world
Even death could not contain
Darkness’ spell
It was defeated that day

He is the light
He is risen from the grave
All our sins are washed away
Light of the world
He is the light
He’s the light of the world
He is the light

He pulled us from the depths of darkness
Brought us into a glorious light
He broke the power of sin…

Hello my dear friends,

Im happy and grateful to announce the publication of my new book ‘Finally Back Home’. It is available on Amazon in both paperback and ebook form at the following link:

A percentage of the proceeds will go to charity so you will be helping a fellow indie writer and the world at the same time 🙂

Also, part of the reason I write is to try and bring comfort to people and inspire them to reach their higher selves. If you feel anyone would benefit from my book I shamelessly ask for a reblog. It would be greatly appreciated!

I would like to thank all of you. It is your constant presence and encouragement here that led to the publication of ‘Finally Back Home.’ In particular, I would like to thank Laura at http://arkofidentity.wordpress.com/ without whom this book would have never come into fruition

It’s now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it’s now or never
My love won’t wait.

When I first saw you
with your smile so tender
My heart was captured,
my soul surrendered
I’d spend a lifetime
waiting for the right time
Now that your near
the time is here at last.

It’s now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it’s now or never
My love won’t wait.

Just like a willow,
we would cry an ocean
If we lost true love
and sweet devotion
Your lips excite me,
let your arms invite me
For who knows when
we’ll meet again this way

It’s now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it’s now or…

A Poem For Myself

I just had to share this very poignant and thought-stirring piece by the very talented Mihran Kalaydjian. Thank you Mihran!

I was born in Mississippi;
I walked barefooted thru the mud.
Born black in Mississippi,
Walked barefooted thru the mud.
But, when I reached the age of twelve
I left that place for good.
My daddy chopped cotton
And he drank his liquor straight.
Said my daddy chopped cotton
And he drank his liquor straight.
When I left that Sunday morning
He was leaning on the barnyard gate.
Left my mama standing
With the sun shining in her eyes.
Left her standing in the yard
With the sun shining in her eyes.
And I headed North
As straight as the Wild Goose Flies,
I been to Detroit & Chicago
Been to New York city too.
I been to Detroit & Chicago
Been to New York city too.
Said I done strolled all those funky avenues
I’m still the same old black boy with the same old blues.
Going back to…
