You Are Somebody’s Angel Child


“I ain’t good-lookin’, but I’m somebody’s angel child.”

– Bessie Smith

Great day all! As we embark on this week and make strides and progress in everything we do, we need to also remember that although we may not be our own  idea of perfection or even accepted conformity, we are all someone’s blessing. Just open your eyes to see what’s really real.

Realize Your Worth


“There is no such thing as can’t, only won’t.  If you’re qualified, all it takes is a burning desire to accomplish, to make a change.  Go forward, go backward. Whatever it takes!  But you can’t blame other people or society in general.  It all comes from your mind. When we do the impossible we realize we are special people.”

-Jan Ashford

Langston Hughes, one of the many architects of the Harlem Renaissance

See Yourself


“God who is goodness and truth is also beauty.  It is the innate human and divine longing, found in the company of goodness and truth, that is able to recognize and leap up at beauty and rejoice and know that all is beautiful, that there is not one speck of beauty under the sun that does not mirror back the beauty of God.”

– Roberta Bondi
