Let There Be Peace on Earth

Lately, I have been feeling a bit misty, watching the news and seeing different events occurring all around the world and this here is my prayer for peace.

May peace dwell in our hearts and in our homes and in our paths and communes with one another and that your peaceful walk might inspire mine.  May peace flow evenly all around the world and touch the hearts of each and every individual on this earth. Peace be with you!

Inspired by the hope for world peace, I performed a Cover of Jill Jackson Miller's and Sy Miller's 1955 tune "Let There Be Peace on Earth" with pianist Danny Dalileo, and would like to invite you to watch it here:

A Breakthrough kind of Saturday Morning

Who gets up on a Saturday morning at 6am? 

Didn't think it would be me; ever. But, all I know is that I was requested to sing at a prayer breakfast and I agreed but still asked Jesus to guide me. I said,  "if you want me there, wake me up and I'll go." I still set my alarm anyway but guess what, grace woke me up about ten minutes before the alarm even awakened me. 

And so, there I was ready to sing at Antioch Baptist Church in Brooklyn for the American Clergy and Leadership Conference Breakfast at 7:45 AM. Thank God he did wake me up. 

Not only did I get to share my original song, "Breakthrough" with worship leaders from all over the globe but I got a chance to listen to former congressman Edolphus Towns preach who said, "keep on fighting the fight and never give up because holding on to God's faith is a sign of integrity," which was so fulfilling to my spirit; a word very much needed and all worth my early morning rising. What a great morning!!!
