Dear Friend....



















"When i met you, i was a little boy. You taught me how to sing out loud, you taught me that i had a voice, and how to express myself through sound. I didn't see it then but i see it now that, you've ALWAYS been there for me and always knew what to say, for me to hear you clearly. Forgive me for my lack of attention, disrespect, and selfishness. The reason why i'm even here all started because i fell in love with you 1st...but listen, that was then and this is now, i can't change yesterday, and tomorrow isn't promised, so i just have to make sure i take care of today, starting today. I'm a new man, older, wiser, humbler, fearless, bold, filled with the spirit and will no longer take for granted the gift that my Father has given me. I know sometimes we get things, but don't fully understand how to keep them or grow with them. So before you slip away, let's dance one more time, and hope the music never stops. With all our getting we gain understanding. Forgive me friend.."

Video of the Day-Marc Anthony Aguanile El Cantante



Q.
What does aguanile mai mai mean?

A.
"Generally, the vocable “Aguanile” (originally written AGGUANILE) is used in the Yoruba chants in honour of the Orisha Eleggua... but AGGUAN means cleaning and ILE means house, property, plot of land, espace... call it as you wish... so that AGGUANILE would be “Cleaning of your home or cleaning of your earthly possessions...” ."

"The word ''mai'' means water in several local languages, and the bullets are said to turn to water before hitting the Mai-Mai."

Creating people that can't not be destroyed

Philippians 4:6-7 (The Message)

 6-7Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.

7 Strangers/7 Waters & God's Grace & Love

"Today in philly was part 2 of this crazy heat wave, it hit 102 again i think. Neway I was working in the studio &  i felt like doing something to show God's grace & love to someone, so since today was 7/7.. i went and bought 7 water bottles (actually 8) and decided to walk up and down Market Street to hand them out to the homeless/elders or to anyone who stopped me. Now, I wasn't even gonna post this up today because I didn't want you to think i'm trying to boast, really what i'm trying to do is inspire you to be a blessing to someone. Now their were 2 people that wouldn't take the bottle of water, but the rest did.  I felt great afterwards, just seeing how happy each person was. It was crazy hot outside man.. I bought 8 bottles thinking i was gonna keep one for myself.. but i ended up giving that one away to someone too..Be Strong, Be Encouraged, Be Blessed"- D. Thomas aka Bobby Boucher  :o)

Be a Doer of the word
"For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in" Matthew 25:35
