Sunday Inspiration: Jill Scott (Golden)

It is good to remind ourselves that we control the way that we conduct ourselves. We wake up each morning with a choice on how we are going to live our lives. Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow is not promised. How are we living our life today?

Sunday Inspirations is the meme created by Sojourner in honor of her Mother. This is just one way to help get us through the week ahead, the trials we may face, and yes, to say Thank Ya and testify! I hope that you participate and share with us your Sunday Inspirations. Your weekly contribution may very well be the inspiration that someone else may need and has been looking for.

The Rules:
  1. Anyone can participate.
  2. You may post a video, poem, religious verse, song, story, picture, ANYTHING that has given you inspiration and the motivation to go on. Just make sure not to offend anyone.
  3. Add your name to the meme list so others can be inspired.
  4. Be and get inspired and be sure to comment.

Yes we certainly do have choices. Just gotta make sure we make the right ones. Much obliged for this Sunday Inspirations post. Truly need this message this morning as I pray for God to show the way and be the gatekeeper of my lips.

Have a wonderful and blessed day and week.

Sojourner - I'm heading over to visit your post right now. Please consider inviting folks in the AfroSpear to participate in your weekly meme. I'm going to try to include the history and rules for this meme with each weekly post...

Hotep Villager!

this is one of my favorite Jill Scott songs. Thanks for posting for this Sunday. We all need to be reminded that our life is a gift and we have the abilty to put what is on the inside of our living.

I love the song and sentiments! Too often we forget that this life is a gift and not to be taken for granted.
Thanks for the reminder!

Lady D - I haven't heard much of Jill Scott' work. In fact, I only just heard this one over the weekend and was struck by the power of the lyrics. I hope we can get more participants in this weekly meme over time.

Regina - Thank you for the comments. Have you considered participating in this weekly meme on Sundays?
