Giveaway: New CD "WHOLE HEART" By Passion Music

The song  tittled "Whole Heart" is the first song I listened to on this album. It's easy to listen to and sing along with. The words are clear, meaningful, and tell us that Jesus gave his whole heart for us. 

"Almighty God" was the second song I chose to listen to, and that's just it, God is Almighty.
People rejoice, hold their heads high and praise God. Our days don't always go as we wish, and there are days we wonder why O God are things not going our way, but we need to praise God for his wisdom and the path he has for us.

I've actually been spending the week visiting my mother in the hospital, and as of now I write this from my hotel room. God is Almighty. He knows just what you need and when you need it. The strength of a song to me is a wonderful way to praise God, and to find strength for your body and soul in times of need or praise.

Same Kind of Different as Me is Now on DVD and Blu Ray at a store near you. Be kind while you shop.

Do you remember your dreams? Once in a while something I see during the day sparks that memory of a dream I had the night before but had no memory of it until that spark. I just give it a laugh and say wow, that was weird.

In this film, based on The New York Times best-selling book and is a recipient of the Dove Foundation seal of approval for ages 12+; SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME, Debbie sees a man at the shelter where she volunteers- from her dream. This man becomes her mission- to be kind and helpful to him. 

Her husband, Ron has joined her at the shelter serving food and he is apprehensive of being at the shelter as he is worried about germs and the people that come to the shelter.

I think it's so much easier to be kind to people than being mean. I'm not a mean person, and it feels better in my soul to be kind.

PADDINGTON 2 Trailer is out, see the film in theaters January 12, 2017

How cute is this bear? Don't you just love his blue toggle coat! My oldest daughter has her own plush Paddington.  I bought it for her from a department store when they had a special promotion, perhaps it was for the Thanksgiving parade. Whatever the case, Paddington still resides in our house with the toys I can't seem to part with, just yet. 

Paddington 2 comes to theaters January 12, 2018 


Following the worldwide hit “Paddington,” one of the most successful family films of all time, this much-anticipated sequel finds Paddington (Ben Whishaw) happily settled with the Brown family in London, where he has become a popular member of the local community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes.

While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington sees a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it.  But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief.

Paddington 2 stars: 

Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Hugh Grant (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Sally Hawkins (Jayne Eyre), Brendan Gleeson (Into the Storm), Julie Walters (Mamma Mia) and Ben Whishaw (The Hollow Crown) as the voice of Paddington.
