I'm chasing my dream that sometimes can be a nightmare!! lol But I love it!!
I am an artist through and through. I am a left handed illustrator, designer that writes, creates and sings. I believe in God, Jesus and that the Holy Spirit stays with me every second of every day I live.
I always make it a deliberate effort to do the right thing. I find myself helping others more than I should, especially when it comes to those less fortunate.
A lot of times on a Friday and/or Saturday night, instead of finding me singing at a bar or event, I can be found sitting around a bunch of homeless people singing songs and just talking about life. I do my best to make sure others know that Jesus loves them, but I do not "Pound the Bible".
No one on this earth is better than I am, and I am no better than anyone else. I don't understand the term "illegal alien". We are ALL God's children and our land is not ours, it is GOD'S! Politics do not concern me, but you do. I may forget what you say or what you do, but I will never forget how you make me feel.
I am extremely sensitive, almost too sensitive. We can never take back a first impression, so I try to make mine a good one. I pray every day for others and my heart truly hurts for those in pain. I believe anger is a choice and that madness starts with sadness. I do write music, but have no songs about Pick-up Trucks, Tractors or my dog. I do have two songs about mama. (I am a Mama's Boy, and damned proud of it). I primarily write about what matters most. Ballplayers make way too much money, I hate guns, I cannot stand people that talk only about themselves.
I've done so many wrong things in my life, and I wish so much I could take those things back and make ALL my wrongs right, but I can't. And that sucks.
I think everyone on this planet should win, there's more than enough to go around. The best part of my day is the very early morning, 4am-ish. And the other best parts are just before I eat, because that is when I automatically say my prayers. I sometimes forget about God and Jesus, but when I eat, I automatically say a prayer.
I often tell God, "Lord, if I forget about you, please don't forget about me." I do not understand why we have to pray if God is always in control. I don't understand why so many horrible things happen. If there are no accidents, then why does the word exist? I DO NOT CARE what religion anyone is and I have nothing against anyone's spiritual beliefs. Every sector and every church has an end result...and that is to walk in The Kingdom of God.
There's a million ways to the top, so we're just trying to find our own. I do not and will not stand for anyone picking on anyone else. I am a kind gentle soul, but if I‘m upset, it can get pretty bad. I'm not saying I'm a badass, but I will not stand for anyone doing anyone else wrong.
I love to love and I hate to hate. I wrote a song, "Thanks to the Devil (I have found the Lord)", and that is so true. If it weren't for the mistakes I've made, I'm not too sure I would have been able to see the Light of God to help me through. I've seen what drugs and alcohol can do to us so I am proud to say that I now live a sober life.
I have no family, Like so many, I've come from a broken family. There came a time that I had to ask myself, "If my brother, sister, father or mother weren't my family, would they be my friend?" And the answer is no in some cases. So, it's up to us to make a difference...with the Grace of God to lead us through.
If you have read this, I appreciate it and it lets me know you just may care. If Ii can pray for you, please let me know and I will. "Say One For Me" is a song I wrote. So yes, say one for me...I will say one for you. I truly hope your today is better than yesterday, but not as good as it will be tomorrow.
May God bless your every breath and lead you where you wish to go. But be careful what you ask for, He may just grant your wish!!
My favorite joke is this: Some hash browns, 2 pieces of toast, 2 eggs over easy, and 2 pieces of bacon walked into a bar and the hash browns hollered, "Hey bartender, we'll take a beer!" The bartender hollered back, "No, we ain't servin' breakfast!" lol
Peace and God bless you!
