Patriotic Sky

Incredible colors – blood red of the coming sun, a few rays of blinding white light,
and solid blue of the disappearing night… A real patriotic sky.

This footage was recorded from deck of the Harbor River Bridge, looking over Harbor Island.
About 2 hours later, I recorded the Hunting Island footage.

Church This Morning

4:30am this morning, I drove to Hunting Island (SC) and watched the sunrise.

I have been going to some beach nearly every week for years now – often several time per week…
I arrive always An hour or so before dawn, and never leave before the sun fully rises.

Never do I sense God’s presence more.
This is when I say my prayers, and talk to The Almighty.
So, here is what my church looked like this morning:

Functional Foods

I was organizing old emails, and ran across the following from my friend Jim Byrum.
The wisdom is timely for me, as I am progressively pursuing a vegetarian diet.

So, in support of the vegetables (and fruits), I offer the following:

Dig Out

Times are hard… Many people, and businesses, find themselves “in a ditch”.
Well, it is time to dig out.

Here are a few minutes I pieced together from TD Jakes… Well worth watching!

This Is My Prayer

Have you ever spoken words so inspired, that you didn’t know where those words came from?
Listen to Calvin Sharpe… He knows exactly where his words come from – and so do I.

God speaks to us… Are you listening?

Sun Up, Drama Down

Sunrise April 29th on Harbor Island, South Carolina…
I listened to “No More Drama” by Mary J. Blige as I filmed this, so thought I would share the total experience.

So tired, tired of this drama
No more, no more
I wanna be free
I’m so tired, so tired

Broken heart again
Another lesson learn
Better know your friends
Or else you will get burned
Gotta count on me
Cause I can guarantee
That I’ll be fine

No more pain (no more pain)
No more pain (no more pain)
No drama (no more drama in my life)
No one’s gonna make me hurt again

Why’d I play the fool
Go through ups and downs
Knowing all the time
You wouldn’t be around
Or maybe I like the stress
Cause I was young and restless
But that was long ago
I don’t wanna cry no more

No more pain (no more pain)
No more game (no more game messin with my mind)
No drama (no more drama in my life)
Nooone’s gonna make me hurt again
No more tears (no more tears, I’m tired of cryin everynight)
No more fears (no more fears, I really don’t wanna cry)
No drama (no more drama in my life)
I don’t ever wanna hurt again
Wanna speak my mind, wanna speak my mind

Uh, it feel so good
When you let go
Of all the drama in your life
Now you’re free from all the pain
Free from all the game
Free from all the stress
So find your happiness
I don’t know
Only God knows where the story ends for me
But I know where the story begins
It’s up to us to choose
Whether we win or loose
And I choose to win

No more pain (no more pain)
No more game (tired of your playin’ game with my mind)
No drama (no more drama in my life)
No more, no more, No more, no more
No more tears (no more tears, no more cryin every night)
No more fears (no more waking be up in the morning)
No drama, no more in my life

No more drama, no more drama
No more drama, no more drama
NO MORE DRAMA
NO MORE DRAMA
NO MORE DRAMA
NO MORE DRAMA
NO MORE DRAMA
No more drama in my life
So tired, tired of this drama
