I’m Just Saying
If your daddy wasn’t around, or your child’s father isn’t around… Don’t dwell on that. For you have a father who has been with you since day one, even on the day the other guy walked out/away. He’s there daily loving you better than any man could ever love you. If we emulate and focus on his love, perhaps the disdain so many have towards “fathers” would decrease and relationships between father’s and children would increase… It really is easy, we just make it hard. #ijs
Last month the big theme for me was LOVE. (it’s a daily theme actually) Nonetheless, I enjoyed sharing and hearing love stories from my subscribers, readers and friends. Now that March is underway, I’m just as excited about Basketball as I was with love last month!!
March Madness… Basketball, Spring and new beginnings! That’s what March means to me. I got to thinking about the two themes for February & March, and so it was only natural that I think of my favorite movie, LOVE & BASKETBALL!
So as I sat here pondering over the lines of this film and my own thoughts of Love & Basketball I decided to write this prayer to God…
THE LOVE & BASKETBALL PRAYER
Lord, let him love you
Lord, let him love to love me
Lord, let him love to watch Love & Basketball with me
Lord, let him love Basketball as much if not more than I do
Lord, let him not love the Lakers but if you insist that he does, at least make him a Tarheel fan like me
Lord, let him love “The Clutch” and recall the 2 three-pointers from 1995
Lord, let him love to go to see the game played live
Lord, let him teach our kids to shoot with both the left & right hands
Lord, let him enjoy high school basketball rivalries, state championships, March Madness and June
Lord, let him know that I’ll love him more than Basketball
Lord, let him know these things and more in Jesus Christ name I pray until next time…
Author Corey Barnes recently posed a statement on his Facebook page which inquired about why so many women are single, with African American women leading the way…
“Just looked at some interesting stats online, 40% Asian, 45% White, 51% Latino, and 70% African American women are single in today’s society. So the question today is, why are so many women still single?”
The post garnered over 100 comments and replies. I doubt that the statistics are accurate, however I do agree that there are too many single women.
Single in this context isn’t just as in not married, but this includes not involved in a relationship or merely dating… (many can’t even name the last time they’ve been courted)
After reading Barnes’ post that morning, I pondered over it throughout the day. That evening I responded…click here —> One View of Why Are So Many Black Women Single?
