"God Bless the Dream, the Dreamer and the Result." 

FaithWalk Clothing by William Renae

In today's world and in times past collaboration and partnering has been an instrumental strategy.  Partnering helps us to grow, learn, change and exchange ideas.  Even the Bible endorses partnering based on the scripture that says, "Where two or three are gathered, I am there."

I want to introduce to you a mother/son partnership, which currently launched a new clothing line.  The clothing line is called FaithWalk. The new line is created to encourage others to save themselves and to take control of their own destiny.

Renae Parker Benenson is a Mom, certified Chaplin (spiritual listener and encourager), writer and co-founder of FaithWalk.  William Marshall Parker II is a Son, entrepreneur, writer and co-founder of FaithWalk.  Together they compliment each other and have found support for their individual and collective growth and development.

They started FaithWalk because they get it.  They have figured out that their life is to get better spiritually, emotionally, financially, intellectually and physically it will be because they have prayed to God and believe that the Creator will equip them for the journey and fill them with unfathomable power to be and to do more than they can ever imagine.

LeBron Doc Soundtrack Lands Some Heavy Hitters

Four of hip-hop’s biggest names have collaborated on a track inspired by an upcoming documentary on NBA star LeBron James, MTV reports. Forever was originally supposed to include just Drake and Kanye West, but Eminem and Lil Wayne have since jumped into the mix. The track is expected to drop Friday; More Than a Game hits theaters Oct. 2.

'Hasidic Reggae Guy' Matisyahu Stretches Sound

Matisyahu Miller is tired of just being the “Hasidic reggae guy,” the singer tells AP. His newest CD, Light, shows a wider range of influences, including guitar rock, electronic pop, and folk. As a Hasidic Jew who sang reggae—complete with Jamaican accent—Matisyahu was a curiosity act who broke into the mainstream with the surprise hit King Without a Crown in 2005.

But after years of an act that could be mistaken for a comedy sketch, Miller felt the need to grow. "One of the things I really love about making music is being able to tap into almost like different sides of myself," he said. He’s optimistic about fans’ reaction: "I think the vast majority of people that respect what I do are willing to move with me. I think it's not so much about genres or styles of music as it is about expressing the emotion or the idea.”

Designer Cavalli Defies the Recession

Roberto Cavalli’s name is synonymous with sexy, edgy designs. The father of animal print and Lycra jeans talks to Vanity Fair’s Mark Seal about his rebellious childhood in Florence, his rise to the top of the fashion world, and his confidence at staying there. “I declare war on the economic crisis!” says Cavalli, who defied the recession by opening a 26,190-square-foot restaurant and nightclub and a seven-story department store.

Cavalli “is a hot-blooded Italian man,” says client Cindy Crawford. He set out to make his fortune in order to procure a Ferrari and a girl, learning his trade by attending art school, visiting the Italian textile capital, and crashing a designer’s party. “I hate what is boring!” he says. “I feel life is so short that we have to create something to make us to enjoy!”

A Star-Studded Performance


Star-Studded Performances are happening every minute of the day! When a person is in a star studded moment, he/she is in a ZONE. Something I like to call THE G ZONE (GOD ZONE). Yeah I know what you're saying "There he goes putting GOD in there". Damn Skippie! The GOOD BOOK says to put GOD first. I believe in that, so that's What's UP!

If you've ever been in a G ZONE, GOD is right there in the mist, telling you what to do and how to do it. You can't be touched or denied.

From the Salesman closing that deal that nobody else could, to the athlete breaking a new record, to the drug addict completely recovered from addiction. These are just a few examples of Star- studded performances, powered by the G ZONE.

Whether you acknowledge/show love to GOD, or not, the G ZONE can still happen for you. GOD loves us all the same, unconditionally, so even if you are not the one to give GOD the glory as your source and supply, it's cool. The G ZONE can happen and as soon as it does these same people will be like, man that was a miracle how everything fell in place. That everything falling in place was a star studded performance powered by the G ZONE. They will give GOD his props sooner or later.

WE can continue to have star-studded performances in life by staying one track minded on anything we want. These miracle performances of manifestation are happening every minute of the day and are always powered by the G ZONE.

Have A Wonderful Life!

Runway Still Chic on Lifetime

Project Runway is back after an interminable absence on a new network in a new city, but critics agree the fashion design reality show has kept all its charm intact.

PR has "hopped channels from Bravo to Lifetime with none of its appeal damaged in transit," Troy Patterson writes on Slate. And the move from NYC to LA has the show "cultivating an US Weekly populism and making its take on the grammar of chic more approachable."
"Project Runway chez Lifetime is the same show we've been obsessed with since 2004," Missy Schwartz writes in Entertainment Weekly. "Though yes, the commercial breaks were packed with a greater number of birth control and tampon commercials than we ever saw on Bravo, no? Gotta know your audience!"
The premiere "was, frankly, fairly forgettable," James Poniewozik writes in Time, but amid all the shuffle, thank God, Tim Gunn is still there. " With him, the show is sweet where it could be melodramatic, sly where it could be broad, witty where it could be too-clever-by-half."

Tribune Sells Cubs for $800M

It’s official: Tribune Co. has signed an agreement to sell a majority stake in the Chicago Cubs to the Ricketts family, the Chicago Tribune reports. Picked as the winning bidder for the franchise in January, family negotiated a deal to pay $800 million for a 95% stake in the Cubs, Wrigley Field, and the Tribune's stake in Comcast SportsNet Chicago. The Tribune is retaining a 5% stake in those assets.

MoMa Shines Light on NYC's Punk Revolution

New York’s Museum of Modern Art is showcasing the gritty glamour of the city’s 1970s and early ’80s music scene, where punk, New Wave, DIY, and noise rock ruled, Rolling Stone reports. New Yorkers were feeling alienated—the city was bankrupt in 1975; President Ford told it to “drop dead"—but that helped inspire “completely honest” art, says one rocker.

The exhibit includes a recording of the Patti Smith rap-poem Piss Factory, which describes a fierce independence and lust for fame; original LPs from the Talking Heads and the Ramones, among others; and “reckless and raw” music videos by the likes of Sonic Youth, writes Alex Vadukul. At the close of the exhibit is a collection of photos, articles, ads, and posters proving the scene’s national impact.

Jay-Z, Rihanna, Kanye Take on the Apocalypse

Jay-Z, Rihanna, and Kanye West romp around a post-apocalyptic New York in the much-anticipated video for “Run This Town” off Jay-Z's upcoming Blueprint 3, reports MTV.com. The clip portrays the three as "warlords in a 23rd-century turf war," writes James Montgomery, but that's beside the point. "It's three of the decade's biggest artists, appearing on one of the year's most talked-about songs, promoting the hugest rap album in recent memory. It really doesn't matter what they're doing in the video—their combined wattage is that powerful."

And it works. "You couldn't blame everyone involved if they mailed it in and coasted by on name and reputation alone. But no one does that here...not Jay, Rihanna or Kanye (though, strangely, he is noticeably absent for most of the clip's first three minutes). If all superstars worked this hard, the world would be a better place...until it's destroyed by the apocalypse, that is."

Venus, Serena Buying Stake in NFL's Dolphins

It looks like the Williams sisters are branching out into a new sport. Venus and Serena are expected to be named next week as part owners of the Miami Dolphins, reports the Miami Herald. Serena acknowledged ongoing talks but did not confirm a done deal. The team would say only that it plans to announce new "limited ownership partners" that will reflect South Florida's ethnic diversity.

The tennis-sensation sisters would join Hispanic singers Emilio and Gloria Estefan, and Marc Anthony as owners, a group majority owner Stephen Ross brought in earlier this summer. Venus and Serena certainly have capital to invest: Forbes Magazine ranked them 77th and 67th respectively for yearly earnings and media visibility among celebrities. They've made more prize money and salary than any other female athletes.

Lighting-Fast Bolt Smashes 100-Meter Record

Jamaica's Usain Bolt shattered the world record for the 100-meter race today, shearing more off the previous best time—his own—than anyone in recorded history, reports the Chicago Tribune. With a 2 mph tailwind, the 22-year-old clocked in at just 9.58 seconds—0.11 seconds faster than the 9.69 record time he set at the 2008 Olympics.

Bolt struck several poses before the gun, imitating a lightning bolt and then an aircraft taking off. But the track performance at the Berlin stadium was far from hype. One commentator said Bolt's time was "some kind of unicorn-like fantasy." His American rival Tyson Gay finished second in 9.71, the third-fastest time in history, beaten only by Bolt's two world records.

The New Science of Vintage Tees

T-shirts were once simple sweat absorbers, then for a few decades they were "movable billboards," but in the 21st century, the "cutting-edge T-shirt is all about the T-shirt," writes Hugo Lindgren in New York magazine. Comfort, not logo or slogan, is the name of the game, and a great deal of art and science has been devoted to giving tees that worn-in look and feel. Techniques range from a “slub knit” that uses varying types of threads for a “clotted” appearance to literally shooting a hole through a shirt.

Some designers use the “burnout” effect, chemically treating shirts so that they’re virtually see-through. Others say if you’re going for a faded look, start at the source: They collect old T-shirts, dye them, and put new prints on them. “There are people already doing almost anything you can imagine,” says a printer. “And as soon as somebody does something cool or successful, it goes right up the chain. They’re already selling slub-knit shirts at Target.”

The Greatest Comebacks Ever

Michael Vick isn’t the first athlete who’s had to claw his way back from the wilderness. Time takes a look at the top sports comebacks ever, including:

Muhammad Ali—The self-proclaimed “greatest of all time” bounced back after losing time for refusing to fight in Vietnam, then lost his rep in his first fight with Joe Frazier.
Pelé—The greatest soccer player ever brought the sport to America in his comeback bid.
Michael Jordan—After his ill-conceived attempt at baseball, Jordan returned to the Bulls with maybe the greatest press release ever. It read simply, “I’m back.”
Brett Favre—When you come back that many times, some of them have to be good.
Lance Armstrong—Even after years away from the sport, he managed to finished third in this year's Tour de France.

Immigrants Fill Dugouts of Minor League Teams

Foreigners, willing to work for less money, are taking American jobs … on the baseball diamond, the Wall Street Journal reports. Ever since George W. Bush signed the Compete Act in 2007, which essentially gave baseball teams unlimited work visas, teams have been snapping up foreign talent at a record pace. The Cubs, for example, have 142 immigrants throughout their major and minor league system, compared to 86 before the law.

Foreign players often come a lot cheaper than American prospects, who routinely command six-figure signing bonuses. “I signed for $1,000, before taxes,” says one Spaniard in the Padres system. “Basically, I signed for a plane ticket and a work visa.” The result is a surprisingly diverse minor league system. Though the majority of imports are Latin American, others hail from such disparate homes as Russia, the Czech Republic, and New Zealand.

The Greatest Sports Movies Ever Made

After a "bloody battle royale," the sports staff of the New York Daily News has anointed the best sports films of all time. Among the contenders:

Raging Bull: Robert De Niro's knockout performance as boxer Jake LaMotta makes this one of the greatest movies of any kind ever produced.
Hoosiers: The heartwarming underdog tale loosely based on a real Indiana basketball team beats out other hoops flicks.
Rocky: The story of unknown fighter Rocky Balboa's rise to the heavyweight title grabbed three Academy Awards in 1976. The studio wanted Robert Redford to star, but Sylvester Stallone refused to give up his script if he didn't get the title role.
Slap Shot:: This perennial puckhead favorite stars Paul Newman as a coach trying to save a minor-league hockey team from extinction.

Apprentice's Omarosa Takes Attitude to Seminary

Famed reality TV villain Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth has seen the light, E! reports. The Apprentice anti-hero will enter an Ohio seminary next week for 2 years of religious schooling on her way to becoming a minister. Her ambition is in line with her character, an official at the United Theological Seminary in Dayton tells the AP. Omarosa has volunteered in Haiti, he says, and her good/bad persona will make her relatable.

Dance the Night Away With Handclap

The Phenomenal Handclap Band gets a leg up on its self-titled debut from buzzworthy guests like TV on the Radio and the Dap-Kings—but one of the unfortunate consequences is that “there's a feeling of anonymity to the band,” writes Paul Thompson for Pitchfork. Nonetheless, when it comes to “buzzing, burbling” dance-floor grooves, the album “is a resounding success.”

“You get about 90 seconds' warning before the groove deepens,” Thompson writes. “And from there, is it ever on: 65 minutes of slightly spacey live-band psych-disco, Hawkwind jamming with Isaac Hayes with percussion from the Incredible Bongo Band. If that sounds like a party, well, it is a party; you'll want to grab a drink and do your damndest to have a good time.”

Jump Inside Your Mind


I had a dream that I could jump inside of a person's mind. The first person I encountered
was a young woman age 18, she had a passion to be a doctor. While looking around I noticed that doubt was overpowering her passion. She lost her mom to cancer and wanted to find a cure. Let's pray that her doubt doesn't win the battle. We need her to fulfill her desire.

After leaving the lady, I jumped into the mind of a young man age 26. He wanted to make a difference in his son's life by being a great father. He wanted to give his child everything that he didn't have. I noticed that lingering in the back of his mind was doubt due to the economy and him being unsuccessful with a job due to layoffs. The thought of dealing drugs approached. Let's pray that this young man can stay focused on good, We need more good fathers.

Finally I jumped inside a Ladies mind that wanted to start her own business. Her mind was so open and clear. Everything was in divine order. Her plan was clearly pictured and posted. I heard doubt trying to enter, but this lady would not let it in. She had padlocks from GOD on all the doors and passage ways of her mind. There is no way this lady's passion/desire will be denied.

I awoke from the dream, thanked GOD for another day, and asked HIM to provide me with the padlocks to keep doubt out.

Hip-Hop's Next Big Thing 'Fine, Fresh, Serious'

“Even in a ‘post-race’ world, street sells,” writes Amy Granzin for Pitchfork. That would explain why some looked at Speech Debelle—the once-homeless UK rapper turned Mercury Prize nominee and "hip-hop's next big thing"—and spun “a tiny bit of flash into blinding bling.” The truth is, Debelle had a middle-class, “girl-next-door” upbringing—but don’t write her off. Her debut, Speech Therapy, is “fine, fresh, serious (yet never dour),” and it “speaks for itself.”

“The title’s no feint: Speech lies supine on the couch for the full 50 minutes,” exploring topics from “the anguish she’s caused her mother” to “absent, irresponsible fathers and the children who tear their own insides out loving them”—and although she occasionally veers from “pacifist and optimistic” to naïve, “she generally cuts through the crap without pretending to have easy answers.”

Harvard Launches Preppy Menswear Line

Harvard University has teamed with a clothing maker to launch its own menswear line—and it's not doing much to dispel preppy stereotypes. The Harvard Yard line, billed as "a contemporary men’s wear collection based on classic Ivy League style," features short-sleeved plaid shirts, patterned jacket, seersucker shorts, and other old-school standbys, BlackBook reports.

Harvard's signature color, crimson, appears in buttonholes and other trimmings. The line's creative director says designers were inspired by photos of Harvard students on campus in the '60s. "It’s a style that has become current again and not just with the American consumer," he tells WWD. "We think Harvard Yard will have global appeal.”

Maxwell and K'Jon Force Soul Music to Grow Up

Soul music has always been adult, conveying mature themes like financial insecurity and emotional anxiety. Now, with the emergence of K’Jon and the return of Maxwell, it finally sounds adult, too, Jon Caramanica writes in the New York Times. “K’Jon and Maxwell represent a strain of R&B that has remained blissfully ignorant of the rise and domination of hip-hop,” writes Caramanica.

Caramanica heaps praise on K’Jon’s major-label debut, I Get Around, calling it “one of this year’s most promising R&B albums and also one of its least expected.” Although slightly more critical of Maxwell’s offering, BLACKsummer’snight, Caramanica praises both artists as throwbacks to classical soul, standing their ground against hip-hop tyranny. With stars of earlier eras taking notice, and soul popping up in unlikely places, the adults are finally back in the room.

New Generation of UK Rappers Steps Out

Grime—a musical genre fusing, among other things, hip-hop, electronica, and Caribbean influences—is being rejuvenated and redefined by “youngers,” the new generation of Internet-savvy MCs reaching for the charts, the Independent reports. “The ‘olders’ grew up listening to rap and hip-hop and other artists from the US,” says YouTube star Griminal. “But the younger generation, we grew up listening to that plus all the UK talent. So I’d say we’ve got a better balance.”

The youngers certainly have more chances to build buzz, turning from the pirate radio stations of old to social marketing on the Web. “I’ve had the benefit of eight years of sitting back and watching people,” says Devlin, 20. “Now, lyrics are more intelligent, rather than just something to get the crowd hyper. A lot of the young MCs are a bit more complex.”

Wise Latinas Embrace Their New Label

GOP senators may have pooh-poohed Sonia Sotomayor’s “wise Latina” comment, but wise Latinas everywhere are wearing the phrase like a badge of honor, the New York Times reports. From t-shirts to blogs, women of Hispanic heritage have warmed to the phrase much like other minority groups appropriate slurs, a linguist says. “‘Wise Latina’ is not just sticking your chin up. It’s a fist in the air.”

A Mexican-American state senator from Texas who had t-shirts made up reading “Another wise Latina woman” says the phrase is empowering, and reminds her of nurturing female elders and “our matriarchal culture.” A younger supporter finds a lesson for today: “You have to be really wise to wake up in the morning and go to school and work and come home and not get involved in the negative things."

Abbey Road Crosswalk May Hit the Road

The Abbey Road crosswalk made famous by the Beatles' album cover may be eliminated because hordes of fans are making it unsafe, say legislators. Accidents at the London intersection have climbed as an increasing number of fans pose on the striped crosswalk for photos, reports the Telegraph. “Maybe it is time to end this once and for all and move the zebra crossing," said a local politician. Help!

Drake Rising Fast in Music World

Drake isn’t your typical rapper. Not long ago, the 22-year-old biracial Canadian was playing a parapalegic teen on the Canadian drama Degrassi: The Next Generation. But two well-received mixtapes and some music videos later, he’s signed a monster $2 million deal with Lil Wayne’s Young Money label, putting him on the map as an artist to watch this year, Rolling Stone reports.

“They’ll say this is the worst deal in music history as far as the label goes,” says Drake. “Probably one of the best deals for me at the moment.” The music is unusual, too; Drake cites such unlikely influences as Passion Pit, David Bowie, and Bob Dylan. “I think you should really listen to some Dylan,” he says. “When I listen back to my raps, I just hear myself being that vulnerable.”

Captain YOU


Wuz up Captain! You are the captain of your airplane in life. How HIGH or low are you flying? Do you have a destination? Are you running low on fuel or is the tank on F?

When I speak of how HIGH Or Low are you flying, I'm talking about your consciousness, self esteem and confidence levels.

Do you have a destination or are you just going through the motions? If you are happy going through your motions that means that you had a destination and you arrived safely. Praise GOD for that and continue to do ya thing! For everybody else, you can't move forward without a clear view of your destination.

That takes me to the question Are YOU Dreaming BIG or small? Everybody doesn't have BIG dreams and that's fine, but if you are not happy with your situation presently, YOU need to dream a bit bigger than you have.

Radio personality and Former BET VJ Donnie Simpson would say " Shoot for the moon and even if you miss you will be amongst the stars".

Low on fuel or are you on F? Low on fuel would be trying to do it all yourself without GOD. With GOD you stay on F for Full of The FATHER.

Remember Captain, you are in control of the altitude of your plane. Fasten your seat bel t, there will be turbulence along the way, but with staying positive and focused on GOD, YOU Will land safely in whatever paradise you painted.

Have A Wonderful Life!

Tinseltown's New Trend: See-Through Clothes

The latest fashion trend for Hollywood’s leading ladies is leaving less to the imagination. Stars from Megan Fox to Emma Watson have been stepping out in sheer outfits, USA Today reports. “Sheer is beautiful,” says one stylist. “You just don’t want to be obscene. The biggest mistake is not putting something underneath.” Her advice for remaining classy? Utilize a skin-colored tube top.

Gangsta Rap Has Nothing on Filthy Blues of Old

Some complain about the explicit lyrics in rap, but modern MCs have nothing on early-20th-century blues singers. Compared to them, “the members of NWA are levelheaded concerned citizens,” says Cracked. A sampling:

"A to Z Blues," Blind Willie McTell, 1956: "I'm gonna cut A, B, C, D on top of your head; That's gonna be treating you nice like mama you ain't gonna be dead." Don't worry—he finishes the alphabet.
"22-20 Blues," Skip James, 1931: "Sometimes she gets unruly; An she act like she just don't wanna do; But I get my 22-20; I cut that woman half in two." At least James prefers the 22-20 to the "too light" .38.
"Shave 'Em Dry," Lucille Bogan, 1935: An ode to her own sexual prowess that "would make Lil' Kim blush."
"Whoopee Blues," King Solomon Hill, 1932: Not only does the singer murder his unfaithful girlfriend, but he finds her a new beau. "I said, Undertaker been here and gone, I gave him your height and size; You be makin' whoopee with the Devil in Hell tomorrow night."

Top American Inventions

President Obama has called on Americans to innovate their way to a speedy economic recovery. In that spirit, Live Science rounds up the top 10 US innovations:

Flight. The Wright Brothers’ 12-second flight in 1903 ushered the world into the age of aviation.
Atomic bomb. The Manhattan project left a dubious legacy, perhaps, but achieved a critical scientific feat nonetheless.
Moon travel. The Apollo program captivated the world by making space travel a reality in 1969.
Laser technology. Scientists at the Hughes Research lab in California first demonstrated the laser, now used in CDs, DVDs, eye surgery, bar codes, etc.
The Internet. The ARPAnet connected computers at UCLA, Stanford, UC Santa Barbara, and the University of Utah in the late 1960s—and the rest is history.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging. The MRI can find disease without harming the patient.
Communications satellites. The Army launched the first such satellite in 1958, clearing the way for the thousands now orbiting Earth.
Transistors. A three-man American team won the 1956 Nobel prize for developing the transistor and shaping the electronic age.
Assembly line. Henry Ford’s method for mass production made manufactured goods more affordable.
Light bulb. Thomas Edison perfected the design for the light bulb, and so started a technological revolution that changed civilization itself.

Young MJ 'Talented, Adorable'

In 1972, Michael Jackson was a freak of a different kind—an incredibly gifted 14-year-old who never got scared onstage. Over many years and numerous interviews, Lisa Robinson got to know his private persona, she writes for Vanity Fair. She recalls his insistence that he liked girls but wasn’t interested in dating, his refusal to release the original “terrible” mix of Thriller, and his relationship with fans.

“I enjoy meeting my fans and I think it’s important,” he said. “But sometimes people think you owe your life to them; they have a bad attitude, like 'I made you who you are.' That may be true—but not that one person. Sometimes you have to say to them, If the music wasn’t good, you wouldn't have bought it. Because some of them think they actually own you.”

In LA, You're Never Too Old to Rap

A new crop of rappers is emerging in Los Angeles, and they have one thing in common: They’re senior citizens. Hip-hop artist Keith Cross started his unorthodox rap class in 2004 to show seniors “there is positive rap out there; we just have to look for it,” he tells the Los Angeles Times. “A lot of seniors are turned off by a lot of the negativity you hear in rap music.”

With Cross’ help, though, his students—even the 75-year-olds and grandparents of 28—soon have nicknames like “Lady P” and “Sneedy Weedy.” They perform their original raps at the end of the class. One even formed her own gospel rap group; she says the class taught her that “it’s never too late, no matter your age, to pursue your dreams.”

Ghostface on New Album: No 'Slinging Crack' in R&B

Ghostface Killah is one of today’s most critically acclaimed rappers, and he doesn’t plan on quitting any time soon: “I’ma definitely be old in hip-hop. This is a mental thing. You can write music till you 70,” he tells New York. His new album, Wizard of Poetry, finds him exploring a new direction: R&B. The main difference? “You can’t talk about slinging crack on an R&B album.”

His manager worried he would lose his fan base, but “I’m not into it for my fan base right now,” he says. “I gotta do what I want to do for myself right now. What’s gonna make me happy.” As for what the future holds—this is his last album on Def Jam—he’s not sure, but says, “the future is gonna be the good days.”

Shakira’s new song “She Wolf” is “either the most insanely brilliant (or brilliantly insane) song you'll hear in 2009,” James Montgomery writes for MTV.com. It sounds like 1970s Italian disco and features the word “lycanthropy,” but the song’s true strangeness can’t be appreciated without seeing the video, in which Shakira “out-dances everyone in the business, and even manages to out-Beyoncé Beyoncé.”

Shakira’s booty alone “seems to swell to nearly three times its original size” at one point, while elsewhere she “folds herself in half, torques vertebrae, lifts legs over her head, pops her shoulders in and out of their sockets.” It’s truly, howlingly good. “Without a doubt,” Montgomery writes, “Shakira is back, and badder (or at least battier) than ever.”

Reacting Your Way Out Of Blessings


We all make mistakes, nobody's perfect. Sometimes out of anger we talk ourselves right out of blessings. Watch how you react and what you say to a person that has made a mistake. Nobody intends to make a mistake but it happens from time to time. Your reaction to the person could be the difference between gaining a blessing or losing it. This leads me to the story of my friend Mike who ordered $150 worth of merchandise from an african-american owned online store. The company, based on previous customers' feedback was excellent, but on his particular order a problem happened and Mike's order had never shipped. He reached out to the company after about 10 days of not receiving his order. The owner apologized profusely for the inconvenience. The owner was very surprised by Mike's reaction. Mike understood mistakes happen and asked if he could still receive his order. The owner of the company refunded Mike's money, overnight ed the order, and once the order was received, he had extras in his package. I wonder if the same outcome would've happened if Mike snapped off, negatively. Of course not!

Watch how you react, your reaction could be the difference between gaining a blessing or losing one.

Have A Wonderful Life!
