It's My Birthday!!! I Have Gone

From the humble and violent streets of East Oakland/
To the glorious magnificent Pyramids in Egypt/
I have gone/
From the government aided apartments on Fairfax avenue/
To the Presidents guest at the White House
I have gone/
From the free breakfast program of the Black Panthers/
To the Tokyo Dome in front of fifty thousand/
I have gone/
From the drug infested hustle/
To the revenue generating flex of my muscle/
I have gone/
From the darkness of disappointment/
To the jubilation of fulfillment/
I have gone/
From the hardness of a dry heart/
To the wells flowing with living water/
I have gone/
From the loneliness of a crowd/
To the happiness of a family/
I have gone/
From the heat and pain of the microscope/
To the gentle hands of the potters touch/
I have gone/
From the wounds of spiritual warfare/
To the power of deliverance/
I have gone/
I Have Gone

As I celebrate my predestined free will journey of life, I must say I am grateful. God, my Heavenly Father, expressed in the image of Jesus, encompassed in the Holy Spirit, you have been so kind to me. You have always answered my prayers and blessed my dreams and visions.
A constant friend, you have been. My Birthday is truly happy, because you have allowed me to know what happiness is. I am complete. I no longer live for me. I have purpose. I am your vessel. I see the beauty that life is. I see the freedom of love. I see the blessings in helping my brothers and mankind. I see the depths of your love in the eyes of my children. I see U. My God. My Lord. My Savior. It is a Happy Birthday indeed.

So wonderful. Your journey has taken you to God and without him we are nothing. He knows what it takes to get us to where he wants us even if we don't - that is why sometimes the bad things happen but there is always a lesson we just have to listen.
Thank you for sharing.
Is it your birthday? Happy Birthday. Your mother has a good son.

Happy Birthday...many blessings. thanks for the kind comment, but according to tag...a blogging game you might not be interested in...you HAVE to answer the qsns in the tag post. here i will give em to you...then you have to tag like 3 other ppl that you read often or are interested to see what they say...

1. Black and White or Colour; how do you prefer your movies?

2. What is the one single subject that bores you to near-death?


3. MP3s, CDs, Tapes or Records: what is your favourite medium for pre-recorded music?


. You are handed one first class trip plane ticket to anywhere in the world and ten million dollars cash. All of this is yours provided that you leave and not tell anyone where you are going … Ever. This includes family, friends, everyone. Would you take the money and ticket and run?



5. Seriously, what do you consider the world’s most pressing issue now?


6. How would you rectify the world’s most pressing issue?

7. You are given the chance to go back and change one thing in your life; what would that be?


8. You are given the chance to go back and change one event in world history, what would that be?


9. A night at the opera, or a night at the Grand Ole’ Opry –Which do you choose?


10. What is the one great unsolved crime of all time you’d like to solve?

11. One famous author can come to dinner with you. Who would that be, and what would you serve for the meal?

12. You discover that John Lennon was right, that there is no hell below us, and above us there is only sky — what’s the first immoral thing you might do to celebrate this fact?

Happy Birthday Mr. Hammer!!!
I loved your songs and still love it, 1991-was a wonderful time. Hammer Time! You hit Top10 in Europe and USSR! McHammer and his energy were everywhere! Even in my car!
Today, I don`t listen present afro-american music, because - it`s trash!
Thank you for your music McHammer!

I celebrated my birthday a week before you. I worried so much that my family was far away, friends all busy and depressed for another year coming....thanks for the reminder to be grateful for so many things and people. My selfishness hid the glory of all he has given me......including your message.

Please register at www.penrick.com - you don't have to post. I would love to know you were there.

Love ya
Penny
