Yes, We’re Begging for Your Mercy…

My girl shared this video with me and the sound of it is nice. The Ethiopian rhasta man is jamming with his styling dreads. And the lyrics are so honest and troubling. “Yes, We’re begging for Mercy,” Aman asks God. I wish God would take this nasty racism that they’ve been subjected to for so long away. I wish they could find a harmony amongst each other and do what’s right for the African people. I wish they and their rich continent would stop being taken advantage of so they could finally excel.

Their unwavering faith is inspirational. But his feelings that they’ve done something wrong to be treated less than, is, it’s sad. These beautiful people, please answer their prayers, God…

“My God, That is Who You Are”

On a walk/job I was stuck repeatedly playing the song, Way Maker by Leeland . “My God, That is Who You Are,” were the lyrics that I kept hearing passionately praising the Lord. I was happy to discover this video of Leeland jamming for a diverse, impassioned crowd. Passionate Christians singing their praise together for Jesus. You can see, feel, and hear their love for their Lord as you watch this video. And what touches me most is the universal lyric, “My God, That is Who You Are.” Whatever faith you follow, whatever God brings you peace, love, patience, forgiveness, prosperity, and security, this song reassures you that Your God never stops, never stops working. So we can let go of fears, because Your God is above depression, loneliness, and DISease, ALWAYS…

Oh the Places You’ll Go at Burning Man!

These imaginative, creatives frame this fantastic event through a Dr. Seuss story. Oh, the Places Youll Go! Congratulations! Today is your day. You‘re off to Great Places!

Before the Flood – Full Movie National Geographic produced (among) and narrated by Leo DiCaprio is the latest Inspirational expression here.

Have you seen this film/documentary that was directed by Fisher Stevens and intimately narrated by Leo DiCaprio? This film was a collaboration between them and other passionate producers in 2016. Leo shares personal aspects of his life to truly connect with the film to help us empathetically understand why climate change is occurring. It opens as he is being appointed the Messenger of Peace on Climate Change by the United Nations. His gratitude of the United Nations, this appointment, and fascination of what is going on and what can be done about it is awe inspiring. Using his innate talents and fame to bring about awareness of what I would consider the most pertinent challenge we face as a species. I like that the documentary ends with a positive message. Thank you Leo for your concern of Mother Earth and future generations!

I also liked a conversation I had with a friend yesterday about how horrible the smog used to be in LA in the 60s and 70s. He said it was so bad, breathing the smog would bother your throat and chest. Thank God for regulations that lowered the pollution levels so now the smog is much better although Los Angeles air pollution is still among the worst in the United States. And most importantly, it demonstrates that if we take action to correct our environmental mistakes the planet will heal itself and go back to it’s former beauty. Imagine if all the countries of the world took action to end their environmental abuses? The true beauty and prosperity of Earth’s health, we would all experience the benefits of this health, and pass on to our loved future generations. This beauty is possible as Leo shares with us.

Will You Marry Me (in Amharic / Ethiopian) by Wendi Mak

I discovered this beautiful song with my Ethiopian fiancee tonight. Ethiopians’ passion and expression of beauty has left me spellbound for a long time like our engagement-haha. The artistic style, sound, and beauty of these lovers is Beautiful, blowing me away:)

“We have passed so many obstacles but now we are here for this special day so Will You Marry Me. Say yes and then I will be your lawful husband forever,” she translates to me as I watch Wendi sing his pure love to his love…

Joan of Arc, still inspires with her bold sense of belief and action from 1412 – 1431

I find her short life remarkable ending around the age of 19 years old. Before we watch the inspired, Donato paint this epic painting we can sense the courage, beauty, and faith that this young lady lived by through her quote,

“One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.”
