Springs' Purposeful Productions! Part One

I'm grateful for family, friends and artists that inspire me by operating in their purpose. Today I highlight some of them and their productions. In March one of my fellow members of Rapha Evangelistic Worship Center, Ms. Suzette Maitland wrote and starred in a play entitled, ‘The Spirit and the Bride.’ Part 1 portrays the spiritual journey of a woman who attended a church that made her more depressed than joyful. Interactions with the pastor and some of the members were more like man’s rules than the love of God. It wasn’t until she continued to seek the father for herself and follow his instructions that she danced in the spirit, feeling the love and presence of God. Rapha Theatre will perform Part 2 of this series in the summer. Perhaps she’ll find a good place of fellowship to share her experience. More info coming soon! Visit Rapha Evangelistic Worship Center on Facebook! In April on By Nicole kane I read about the announcement of Meagan Good and Devon Franklin’s engagement. The picture was attractive and I was happy for them. I saw that he was a Seventh Day Adventist preacher and Vice President of Production for Columbia Pictures, a division of Sony Pictures. I never forgot an interview years ago in which Good made the interviewer aware that she was a Christian. I sought out more info about Franklin and found a You Tube video of him speaking at one of Bishop TD Jakes services. He spoke with such passion about the connections that the heavenly father places in our lives for our purpose and encouraged the purchase of his book, "Produced by Faith." I researched more and was able to view one of his inspiring sermons of which you can see him and his future bride embrace at the end. Compelled by Franklins’ testimony I purchased his book and was blessed by it! I couldn’t wait to read it each day on my way to work. I completed his book that same month; now that is a big deal for me and the beginning of new things. I would tell people about it and share some of what I learned. It’s a self-help, inspiring, career bio and testimony. ‘Produced by Faith’ is an engaging educator for those interested in film or not. Franklin details each phase of production and prompts people of faith to keep it real at work and in return they will be blessed the more. I loved it and highly recommend it to you! Begin your own spiritual journey and be true to the God in you! Part 2 next week. Be Blessed.

Let Us Teach As We March On!

I recently attended a black history celebration in which a woman on the program was singing Lift Every Voice and Sing. This song is the Black National Anthem. As an African American raised in a predominate black church I'd sing it with congregants during service, as an alum of an HBCU (Historically Black College) we'd sing the anthem at special events and as a member of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) which adopted it as the official song, I'm both humbled and proud to stand up in reverence of my ancestry. The lyrics request for a people to give high praise in continued faith and remembrance to past and present legacies of resilience. Be sure to view the words and related links below.
Yet at this event I was the only one standing. It was a teachable moment as I quickly nudged my eldest daughter to stand with me. I could hear someone whisper, ‘should we be standing?’ I didn’t turn around. I figured someone would tell them or they’d ju…

Day On Dreams!

Happy Blessed 2018! I'm elated that new year celebrations are followed by national commemorative events and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. Starting this weekend there will be many opportunities to lend a helping hand in our communities across the United States of America. This is a Day On to Serve! The Corporation for National and Community Service expects to engage nearly 1 million people in thousands of service projects in all 50 states. On this day, federal, state, and local
leaders will join citizens in honoring Dr. King's legacy through service projects addressing pressing
community needs.

In 1994, Congress designated MLK Day as the first and only federal holiday observed as a national day of
service, and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this national
effort. Americans may visit to find a service project for MLK Day or a year-round volunteer
opportunity in their own community. If you have not already …

Creation Is Life!

I see this page clear, white, new and I write. I'm creating! I first thought about it. I revisited why I began. I looked at my vision wall. I spoke of who I am and I did it. The rest of the story will be completed as I continue.

It is me. The words could not be written without my ideas, my experiences, my action. This is written revelation. The consistency I've needed has always been in me. So in continuing to encourage this action I do the work. I maintain the flow needed to see these black words fill the page with life through letters. Altogether creating for those after me to be inspired in purpose.

Expression has always been a blessing for me. Verbal shares, written thought, movement and dance. Being still in the garden, watching life in the company of my breath. Walking slowly in admiration for the beauty that grows from a seed. All senses glorifying the experience. I give God thanks for every activity of my limbs.

I close my eyes. I breathe in deep. I feel my heart beat…
