Twilight World

Swing Out Sister are my favorite pop group. The music from the 80s was so touched by them. BET played a lot of their music back in the day.They are considered as a pop group but their music sounds very soulful. There are so many songs by them that I love. One of my favorite songs is called Twilight World!! Check out the lyrics:

Twilight World
Song by Swing Out Sister

It’s twilight world
It’s twilight world
Time out
World in a hurry
There’s more love than money changing hands
Lights out
Thinking out loud
Turn your back on the world outside
Night thoughts
No one can share
As darkness breaks through another day
Secrets
Talking out loud
Silence waits just a dream away
Forget lonely crowds, unfriendly faces
They’ll soon became familliar places
Before too long, before too long
Don’t be fooled by love songs and lonely hearts
You’re living in a twilight world
Don’t be fooled by love songs and lonely hearts
Don’t give in to the twilight world
Time out
World in a hurry
There’s more love than money changing hands
Lights out
Thinking out loud
Turn your back on the world outside
Forget lonely crowds, unfriendly faces
They’ll soon become familiar places
Before too long, before too long
Don’t be fooled by love songs and lonely hearts. You’re living in twilight world.
Don’t be fooled by love songs and lonely hearts. Don’t give in to the twilight world.
Don’t be fooled by love songs and lonely hearts. You’re living in a twilight world. Don’t be fooled by love songs and lonely hearts. Don’t give in to the twilight world.

What’s Tameeka Listening To?

I’ve been on a Daryl Hall kick for a few days. Daryl Hall is one half of the music duo Hall and Oates. I have been fans of Hall and Oates for years one of my favorite songs by them is Say It Isn’t So. Recently I have been listening to his solo album called Soul Alone. One of my favorite songs by Daryl Hall is Stop Loving Me, Stop Loving You. Daryl Hall used Marvin Gaye’s song When did you stop loving me, When did I stop loving you song as a template for his song. Check it out:

What’s Tameeka Listening To?

I love music so very much!! Every day I have to listen to music for hours while studying or just relaxing. Music is the closest and best way that I can explain my thoughts and feelings with various CDs of course. One CD cannot clarify or interpret my affection and emotions. I’d like to think that I am the master of my emotions thus I use music it resonates deeper than words. My taste in music is extremely large I listen to everything. I’ll listen to soft stuff, hard stuff and anything that gives a meaningful and deep experience that can transport the mind and body. I’m loving this song. Check it out:

Rest Father

Father I want to make amends

Not sure if you are in hell or Heaven

If you can hear me

I need for you to listen

Please lend me your ear

I want to make it clear

That you no longer have to fear

Your angry little girl

Has become a grown woman now

In more ways than one

I have forgiven you for

Everything that you have done

I have learned to move on

To not allow grudges

To destroy me

I may not know all of your story

Still I give God the glory

For helping me it has healed me

I see things a lot more clearly

Forgiveness is everything

Now that I am a mother

And I have children of my own

New thoughts have been born

Even though you wasn’t around

I have found

That’s it’s best to turn

My frown upside down

Everything happens for a reason

Regardless God made you my father

You help to make me

Because of you I have my two babies

Blessed to see possibilities

I’ve done what it takes

For my soul’s sake

To realize that human beings

Make mistakes

And it may sound weird

But not having you around

Wasn’t such a bad thing

Every event that took place

In my life has help to mold me

Into the person that I am today

Yes you too are apart of that

I am sorry that I didn’t

Say these things at your hospital bed

I guess I wasn’t ready

I guess it wasn’t time

This is what I want and need

You to know

I will now allow your soul to rest

Father you sleep now

I forgive you

I just had to let my feelings out

Happy Father’s Day

Rest In Peace

 

How Far Should A Christian Go?

How far should a Christian go when it comes to helping a person that wants to come to our faith? I hear  a lot of Christian musicians speaking of them being a light in dark places. Some of these Christian artist go into clubs and really bad neighborhoods. Still how deep into the darkness can one go and be safe? I know Matthew 18:12 says How think ye? if  a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and forth into the mountains, and seeking that which is gone astray? Not questioning the protection of God He has our backs definitely.

It’s important to set some boundaries we all get weak our intentions are always good in the beginning but what happens in the middle and the end. Many are questioning Kirk Franklin’s collaboration with Kanye West. I like to compare situations like these to wearing all white clothes no matter how much you try to keep it clean a spot gets on it somehow. One can only stay so clean against something dirty. How much should we risk our own soul to help someone that’s coming to our faith? As far as I am concerned and I am no expert by far let’s use the analogy of saving a person from falling off of a cliff both people have to do their part or they will both go over the cliff. The same applies to a person who wants to come into our faith we are to welcome them, inspire them and help as much as we can. The key words are” help as much as we can”. No one is above backsliding that’s why it’s important for us to be careful. One has to have the want to to go with the help, things don’t work with help alone in order to have a garden one must plant the seeds for it to grow.
