While You Were Sleeping

While you wee sleeping I whispered in your ear encouraging words to remind you of just how awesome you are and why you were born. When you were sleeping I held you tightly to remind you of what it feels like to be held without expecting anything in return. When you were sleeping I kissed you to remind you of what a kiss of love feels like and I placed my hand on your cheek to let you know when no one else understands the Creator does. When you tossed and turned I laid my hands on your back and prayed earnestly for you that whatever hindered you from sleeping would be dissolved so that you could find rest. When you were sleeping I just watched you in utter amazement that the Creator would put such fine detail in creating you. When you were sleeping I laid my head on your chest to listen to the rhythm of your heart song. While you were sleeping I decided that you needed more love from me to fill up any empty spaces where you may feel a void. You may ask why have you never told me you were doing this while I was sleeping, and I will respond by asking a question didn't you hear as a child that all night and all day Angels are watching over you. Well then I'm just the Angel that works the night shift and I told Titus to write you this letter to remind you. Inspired by me watching my wife sleep. Peace and Blessings Titus I remain (C) 2010

Words, what is it about them that have so much power and in some cases cause so much pain. It's amazing when I consider all the things I have said and written will live as long as those who heard them are impacted by them and seek them out for inspiration and empowerment. At a funeral recently it was not the life of the person I reflected on so much, but rather it was her words. What is it that you have said to someone that they can hold on to for their life time. Maybe it's words like I Love You or you miss them. Maybe it is words that you did not say and you wish you would have. There is another dimension to words and it is those communicated through body language. So please family be careful because it is those things that are expressed verbally and bodily that those you come in contact with will remember long after your gone. And remember it is written out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, what are you saying???????????? Titus I remain (C)2009

Twenty Four Hours

You've just been told you have 24 hours to live, what do you do, do you cry and lay down and wait until your last breath is taken? Don't ask why you are dieing, lets just assume the causes are natural, or at the finale hour a bullet will end it all. But guess what it doesn't matter how it will end, the fact is that it will in 24 hours. 24 hours, again what would you do, spend time with your child or with your boo, tell me what would you do? It is funny how when time is placed on a situation how many step up to the plate to do their part but when there is no clock life is often taken for granted. If you had 24 hours to live how meaningful would that prayer be, how much more meaningful would that kiss be, how much more meaningful would looking at the stars be, especially knowing you will never see them again? How much more important will saying Mama I love you become, or Daddy I forgive you become? I wonder if Biggie knew he was in his last 24 what would he have done different or Tupac for that matter? I wonder if I knew that day July 19 that my best friend would set me up to get shot and I would end up in a wheel chair what would I have done differently those 24 hours before? And not to mention I died on my way to the Hospital. Enough about me and back to you honestly don't give me a deep answer tell me what would you do? Because the truth is no one knows when the day comes and they will be in there finale 24. (C)2009 (I Remain Titus Inspired By Life)

Image, Likeness, Breath

The Bible clearly points out that the Creator formed Adam in His image and likeness but it was not until He breathed into Adam that Adam became a living being. What is it to be in the image of and likeness of GOD and especially to have His breath running through you? I can only image the pleasure the Creator found looking at Adam function effectively naming the animals and even having enough Godly insight to call the beautiful specimen GOD pulled out of him woman and even after the fall Eve. But today what does it look like to be in the image and likeness of the creator and to have His breath flowing through you?? Is it good deeds, Sunday morning messages, or prosperity?? Is it I Love you because you love me, or feeling you are in a place to judge?? Is it because you think you look good, or your better than another?? My take on what it means to be in the image and likeness of GOD and to have His breath flowing through you is when you embrace the fact that your life is not your own, and that you are here for a greater purpose than you. Any charismatic person can stand and make a group of people feel good for an hour or two, but can you cause change? Any body can have sex, and have children but can you beyond the school system raise them to be great and not just successful? Can you look in the mirror at the person staring back at you and say I Love you, and in your own eyes see greatness and potential even when no one else is around to tell you? If you can answer any of these with yes then that is what it means to be in His image and likeness and to have His Breath flowing through you. Don't be a part time lover of GOD, you can not pick GOD up and put Him down like a tube of lipstick or a pair of Jordan's or a crack pipe. GOD needs to be recognized as a part of you like your heart beat, because without either you are dead. Family you have a reason to breath, and that reason is to change lives, but you can't do that if you don't recognize the purpose and power of your own life designed by the Creator. (C)2009

Death Bed

There once was a man that lay breathing heavily on his death bed, Friends and family had already been by to say their finale goodbyes, so the man requested to spend his finale minutes alone in prayer. The family and friends respecting his request stepped out into the hall closing the door behind them. The man began to grasp the rails of the bed as he pulled his self up and bowed his head. He spoke saying Lord I thank you for the life you have given me and all that you allowed me to do, just then he heard a voice say yeah right, opening up his eyes the man saw, people he didn't recognize surrounding his bed. He asked am I dead, one of the individuals standing around said no, not yet we just thought before you did die you needed to be confronted by all that will be dieing with you. The man looked at the faces around the bed in desperation saying I don't understand. One of the individuals standing at the foot of the bed said we represent all the wasted time, the words you did not say when you were supposed to, and the books you did not write, and the love you did not give, and the dreams you did not fulfill. and the ideas that never got off paper and the forgiveness you would not extend and the promises not kept. The man said but I did this and I did not have time to do that, and she wouldn't forgive me so I did not forgive her. Silence, one of the individuals yelled, while pointing a finger into the mans face, we don't want to die, we want to live, yet we are doomed to be added to the library of endless potential found in cemetery's around the world. The faces of the individuals (potential) showed great anger and then suddenly they disappeared. The mans prayer changed from Lord thank you for this and thank you for that, into Lord I'm so sorry, for not using the life you gave me the way you wanted. Then the man and all his potential died. Question who or what will be around your death bed? What we do with our life today until that day will determine who is there, trust me I know. I've been there twice.

Personal Thoughts (switch lanes) Take a Seat

It is amazing when looking at my life, the friends that have come and gone, the family that I have loved and lost. And the tears I have cried and cried and cried, some of joy and others of pain, some visible and others invisible. It is like living a life where each day you look in the mirror and ask what will the day bring joy or pain, new friends or betrayal, love everlasting or momentary satisfaction. ( Switching lanes). Imagine a chair inside of you a seated in that chair is GOD and beside Him is two more chairs, in the chair immediately beside Him is Jesus and next to Jesus the chair is empty. Now remember this scene is in side of you, there in front of GOD and Jesus and the empty seat is a window and outside of that window is your life happening in real time. But see GOD and Jesus and the empty seat are not in real time for they are on GOD time which supersedes reality. The empty seat is there for us to be seated with GOD and Jesus in heavily places, and if we take that seat we are able to see things from the angle in which GOD sees it. It is time out for running around asking others what they think you should do or how you should do it, my question to you is what did GOD tell you to do, and when is the last time you sit down long enough to listen?????????????? Many people are thinking that GOD is concerned with what they want to do, but I believe GOD is concerned with what you need to do. Example Jesus needed to die, that we might have life. Your Mother and father needed to get together to give you life so that you could perform you're purpose, that needs to be fulfilled. Today Brothers and Sisters I'm just putting finger to keys, without a title, but trust I understand someone needed to read this. I will call this take a seat, GOD is waiting.

The Essence of a Woman

The beauty of a rose is unforgettable and the smell or essence is even more amazing, because it lingers through the place it dwells alerting all to it's presence. A woman is the same in my opinion, For she has beauty and essence. But the thing that saddens me is that many sisters (not all) have an understanding of their beauty, but not the essence that they possess. So they settle to be seen as beautiful without anyone ever understanding or even willing to embrace their essence. When is the last time a brother complimented you on your mind, when is the last time someone mentioned your beauty and yet was drawn by the essence of your soul? When is the last time, you complimented yourself on your own essence. For I tell you dear Sister, you are much more than a pretty face and a body, but it is whats in you that defines you. The amazing thing about a rose is that even when it's beauty fades, the essence of the rose is still as powerful as the day it bloomed. Many people buy roses because of what they look like, and they are quickly discarded when they wither. But just image if the rose was looked at not only for it's beauty but for the essence also, Imagine if you were looked at not only for your beauty but for your essence. This goes out to every Sister and my prayer is that GOD will tune you in if He hasn't already to the essence of who you are. For a woman's essence is like a treasure, it is hidden, but is found by those that are willing to dig deep enough to find it. Sisters don't settle, GODS best awaits you.

Inspired By the thought of my Daughters future and the young men that will try to holler, and the Sisters I see settling. Peace and Blessings to all
