In commemoration of the passing of my husband of 34 years, I would like to share with my BA Gospel Music Ministry friends a song I wrote back in 2012 when we were going through a rough patch called “Prayer of My Heart.” In addition, I would like to say to you not to wait until a tragic event comes along to show love to one another. Make up with your loved one quickly, life is short. As Jesus said, “Forgive…” (Mark 11:25); and, “Love one another…” (John 3:23).
One day, out of the blue, my mind started thinking in terms of rhyming. I would read and get inspired by a certain verse or word and I would start turning over rhymes in my mind. Feeling that I was on to something, I began writing them down. That led to writing poems, I put a few on Poetry.com, a while back. When I turned to producing songs, I took the poetry and put music to it in my mind. When I sit down to try to produce the song, the complete rendition is already set in my mind, so when I find the means, it only takes a moment to produce it. Since then, I have moved on to making videos (it’s free), I just published my latest on YouTube. “Spread the Word.” Below I have listed the poem it was created from.
SPREAD THE WORD
I speak these words by inspiration
Given to me by revelation
That by publication, education
Taken to a dying nation
May result in the perpetuation
Of the common salvation
From creation to the population
I got to Spread the Word
So with dedication to the situation
I maintain the observation
This persuasion of predestination
Is aggravation, and invasion
Into my direction
With no escape from intimidation to manifestation
by motivation of the preparation of this
Of this dissertation, illiteration, and illustration
I got to Spread the Word
I am so excited about my latest project. As I may have mentioned before, I am a gospel songwriter/singer. I have so many songs recorded it’s not funny. Being unconventional in my approach, and in my sound, I opted to record in my home studio. I don’t have money for professional recording studios, which can cost hundreds of dollars and require spending a lot of time to, in and from the studio, I decided that by the grace of God, I would produce my music myself. Now, that sounds simple, maybe, but if you have something to say, getting someone to hear it is another hill to climb.
There are so many opportunities with social media, this has opened doors that hitherto were closed. And, now, I have discovered music videos. Not of me singing, but by using pictures, themes, typed words, other audio-video media (I am using Cyberlink Power Director that came with my computer), you can produce any type of video you want. I am having so much fun.
If you get a chance, drop by Youtube and take a look, or listen, or both. You can click on the following link to take you there.

I have added a new video on YouTube, “Tears of Joy” from my Album: Praise the King.

Thanks for listening.
Aside from writing and producing music, art by faith, the LOV fellowship, and the myriad of other projects, I am writing a book. This book is something I started back in 2008 through 2011 and I am just now getting back to writing again. Right now the title is “Bearing the Cross.” I wanted to write down the results of my studies and views of being a follower of Jesus Christ, and expose truths I haven’t heard discussed elsewhere. I’ll write updates on my progress here.
I have also produced an E-Book of the Kingdom of God.
There’s a real problem on this site, trying to add music. I can’t seem to figure it out. So, my recourse is to put my music on YouTube. I’m still working out the details. Since YouTube is a video site. I need to put the music in a video format. Will keep you posted.
Jesus brought us the message of the gospel from our Almighty God and Father concerning future events full of grace and truth.
