THE MASQUERADERS-EVERYBODY WANNA LIVE ON. Although The Masqueraders’ roots can be traced back to 1958, they never released their debut album until 1975. That was the Isaac Hayes’ produced Everybody Wanna Live On, which was recently rereleased by Ace Records. Everybody Wanna Live On was the result of a long journey for the five Masqueraders. […]

Your Sabbath Bread: Love is Sexless

Having sex is not love. Generally men may think this way, and women think giving sex is love; however, one cannot place a measurement there to say that sex is love, and one should ask when did the Most High say that sex is love. In this, one should think that seeking sex is seeking love in the wrong place. People love sex, but sex does not seek love that lasts. Hence, one should see that though sex is good it is not love, because when we love a person we may give sex freely; however, in that same note withhold it when we do not love any longer. Sex is not love then, because love does not fail us when sex is no more, and love is withstanding when sex is not available. Love suffers, and sex finds another option. Therefore, sex fails when love does not. It is the case, that without love we have nothing but sex which produces babies to love and to recreate love in itself, but since love is not sex–loveless sex can walk away. Ladies and Gentlemen, love is sexless which says that ultimately one must find the realm of making love not sex.

(1 Corinthians 13).

Celebration in Truth

I could go with the ant appreciation and focus on the harvest and storing up for winter. If one can think of celebrating let it be truth

Ant Appreciation Month (August).

It if seems like some new holiday gets celebrated every day, it’s not just your imagination. Name a day, and it’s probably a holiday, though perhaps one you’ve never heard of: Poetry At Work Day (January 10). As Young As You Feel Day (March 22). International Beer Day (August 4). As it turns out, anyone…

In everything worthwhile be committed to that call –a higher call

Lots of hard work in that.Commitment and dedication to your goals are needed in Image may contain: text Improving one’s life, however, the premise here is that though it is a noble goal to improve we should make sure it’s our own thought that we can get through that and decide that quitting is not an option. In other words, no matter how hard it gets I will not quit which means I am not doing that to impress anyone, prove anything to anyone but me.

I like this saying, that is, “Surround yourself with people who force you to do better”. I printed that out and I have that sitting on my TV stand.

Truth surrounds you — not with others who tell us what we want to hear, or, who mock and attempt to stop our seeking but surrounding ourselves with those who seek to understand and can teach us what we do not know.

Many blessings to you beloved.

For your hearing:

I pursue, [looking] towards [the] goal, for the prize of the calling on high of Yahusha Ha’Mashiach (Philippians 3:14).

Angry White Men and Domestic Violence

Gender & Society

By Kristin Anderson

Domestic violence happens to all social groups, but it is more likely to occur among those who have to worry about paying the rent or keeping kids safe from neighborhood violence. Data from the 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS), the most recent large national survey of domestic violence victimization among U.S. adults, show that women who live in households with incomes under $25,000 experience annual victimization at over three times the rate of women in households with incomes of $75,000 or more (here).  Study after study finds that heterosexual women with less access to education and income suffer the highest rates of abuse.

Does this pattern also occur among men?  Are the least educated and poorest men at greatest risk for victimization?  My research with Mick Cunningham shows that the story is more complicated among straight men.  Our analysis of NISVS…

Bloodline: My Story of Lost Hope and My Salvation!

trust-brokenThis is most likely the beginning of my book. Most likely because until now everything I write has benefited you. How? Because to give without gaining anything from it is the Way. Scripture is plain for us that we are to give, and also explains that when we give it will be given back, that is, given back pressed down, shaken together and overflowing. However, until this year I did not have it in me (anything in me) to give like that.
October 21 is my birth date, and until today I have never experienced joy. Today is joyful because I have the chance to know my father. In fact, about 2 years ago my heart started yearning for him. I was raised by my mother and stepfather from birth so this story is important for women who have to make a choice to choose your baby daddy or the man who is more settled because daddy’s life is not stable.
As you look around the rooms of your mind and remember I would like for you to consider the choice. Not in the now but looking to future to ask —what if?
This is so awesome and painful I can hardly bear it. My daddy loves me and has been looking for me over 40 years, and I have answered prayer to my desire. Does anyone understand this? Do you understand what we do to our children when we do not acknowledge their father?
My father was a famous man, a lead singer in the group THE MASQUERADERS. I didn’t know that at first, but I understand now that my father wanted to marry my mother. I am his first born, and he told me he wrote Call Me the Traveling Man when he was 17 years old–him singing. To my surprise, it was that same age that I was conceived. He loved my mother and wanted to marry her but she made her choice knowing the consequences of her decision.
Today is really special and when my father called me today (as he does daily) to tell me happy birthday —my heart is filled with joy. You probably cannot understand but I believe Yahuah!
So grateful.
Thank you for all the well wishes for my day—I am fine. In deepest regard,
Kayla J. Dailey
