What's your purpose?  I feel like I've blogged about this recently...

In a sermon or two, I've heard that people come into your life for a season, a reason, or a lifetime.  The question is how to determine which one those in your life fit.  I've dated a guy or two when it came time to have that "just friends" conversation.  It's not always easy to be on either side of that conversation.  However when it's time, it is time. It is time to realize that person is there just for a season. While it would be nice to have some people or situations around for a lifetime, that's just not always the case.

It's hard to change seasons...long or short.  When seasons change with the weather, we often need to change attire, moods, or routines.  The same goes with people who come in and out of your lives.  It can be agreed among many that change is never easy, but certainly necessary.  With no change, there is no growth.

In my most reason change in seasons, I've had to sit back and really think about what the change meant.  It is my belief that change happens in order for us to pay attention to something else in life we may be neglecting, i.e. health, wealth, spirituality or family.  In my honest opinion...after having dealt with this a few times...I don't think we should waste time on trying to figure out why someone has left, but rather what is it in your life that needs attention.  Don't focus your attention on that season.  Focus on the new season that is vastly approaching because a new season is certainly coming soon. 

Next time a situation in your life changes...a loss of job or relationship.  Don't worry about the loss.  Just think about what is to come.  From experience I know that seeing things that way may confuse those around you.  Why?  I think many people want you to debate with them about why...why are you leaving me? Why did you fire me?  That's not to debate.  Just accept the change in seasons and look forward to what's to come!  Next time it might be for a lifetime...if not, then you can certainly rest assure that it is for a reason!!!

Good-bye season!!! Thanks for the time well spent.  You served your purpose now I look forward to what is to come next.


One of greatest loves to have is love of self. 

I never got a chance to say more than "hello" to her after a brief introduction way back when I was a kid.  If  only I would have been given the chance to sit down with her...well, this blog will express some things about what I would have said.  If it somehow reaches those closest to her, I hope this gives them some solace and happiness about the life she lived.

She was one of the few famous people whom I actually adored.  I choose those people wisely.  Whitney Houston's art and presence made me have some heartfelt attachment to her.  Growing up with her art was pure greatness!

I was a young girl when the hit The Greatest Love of All was released.  I would sing that song to the top of my lungs!  I would watch the video in amazement about how this beautiful woman moved me with her voice and her words.  It was her assurance.  It was her belief in me, a young girl.  She herself a young woman growing in life and a career.  From that point on, I've been mesmerized by her voice.  It moves me to hear her voice alone.  Her art. Her words. Her voice.  All of them pure greatness.

You should always tell someone how you feel before they leave this place.  Many times you hear people say that.  Well, I don't think my words would have ever been of some importance to Whitney, but it really doesn't matter.  I don't care when she died, how she died, or why she died.  What matters is how that woman lived her life.  It was great.  Judge not! I judge not what personal issues she or any other person has...what I know is Whitney spread a word of faith, love, and hope in all of her music.  Her music set a fine example for young girls to grow up with.  I only hope that her great legacy lives on.

Whitney's greatness certainly stands out to me and I will spread her legacy on as a woman who carried herself like a lady.  Her art of music spread words that built up a person's character.  It wasn't about being flashy and showy, it was just about living great.

So to her family and friends...know that Whitney was truly one of the GREATEST!  I'm sure as she is resting, she knows that the messages she spread were certainly a blessing! Well done, Whitney. Well done!
