Please listen to hear Rev Walter Hawkins
Today I lost someone whose voice (just like my moms) would lift me up, bring me joy & tears all at the same time. He was an awesome singer & wonderful pastor. Walter Hawkins died of complications with pancretic cancer. This is one his songs that really touched my heart & if you've never heard him sing, you've missed out truly a wonderful treat. I will be praying for his family as I know it is a great loss to them.
In my youth, I can remember gospel music playing all everyday & especially on the weekends when my mom washed our clothes on a scrub board & hung them out to dry. Yes, she was an old school mom. lol I gospel played on Sunday morning, there was no watching tv while getting dressed. You dressed first & then sat nicely until everyone was ready to go to church together. My time has changed but I am trying implement my own changes back to the old time way. No tv til you're dressed & then cartoons only. I need to speak this to me & my husband cause we are often held back by the idiot box. lol
I pray that we all take the opportunity to share with our loved ones how much we love them. Take a walk or eat a healthier meal to walk with them in the future. This is one of the reasons we are on spark to live & be better. The same reason I love being a christian to love greater, live better, do better & be better!
God bless you all & enjoy your day!
