Growth Is A Good Thing

I think back to the past every now and then. Well, actually sometimes more than I should because there were a lot of things in my past that don't make me feel good to remember. But today I thought about a conversation I had with my youngest sister. I was visiting her and she was listening to music and I remember asking, "You listen to that?" It was a white artist. Her response, "I listen to all kinds of music." I got to thinking about my narrow-minded self after that and today I also listen to all kinds of music no matter the race of the artist just like I'll read a book, giving no thought to the race of the author. With music and books there are some genres I'm not into but I no longer feel I should just listen to music by black artists. I don't know why I felt that way back then; maybe because that was all I knew. Anyway, I changed my thinking before I got into reading, so I never had a problem with reading books that weren't written by black authors. Feel free to check out my Amazon profile to read my reviews of books written by authors of different races and I also reviewed some movies. I have plenty of books saved in my Amazon cart that I'll get around to buying. Lots of good books out there I would have missed out on if I didn't care enough to check myself. Growth is a good thing!

So now I'd like to share a video I have on my iPod. I love this song and I really love how Brandon Heath sings the word Yeah. Enjoy :)

Om if only it were that easy to get everyone to be more willing to embrace other cultures through the arts!! Being open minded in what we read or listen to is so important in learning to be more accepting in real life!

I'm loving this song because it's speaking to me..I've been so caught up in my own issues,and I realized this one day when i was at work when I was was walking down the aisle and this girl said "I'm so deep in thought that I went the wrong way", and just that moment those words stuck to me..I started to realize that I've been in my own little world and blind to my surroundings, somebody needs a word from God but I 'm not paying attenting, somebody needs comfort but I'm not paying attention..so thanks for that posting of his video because those words are speaking the truth.

Brandon is allowing God to use his talent to not only reach the lost but Christian folk who need to be reminded that we should let our lights shine so God can bless others through us. He reached me with this song and I'm glad he reached you, DaughterofJoy.
Thanks so much for stopping by...
Be Blessed :)
