They predict he should be out by Friday, the latest next Tuesday depending on how well he can get around without assistance. Going to hospital now...

magmikala524: Prayer Requests

I've got 3 prayer requests to share with you guys.

The first is for my hometown's Habitat for Humanity group. The other day, the building where all of their tools were stored was broken into and all of their tools were stolen. I hope and pray that the person who did this will be caught and brought to justice because stealing is bad enough but when you steal from a non-profit agency that helps the community, that is just sick in my opinion. I also hope that people will be generous and help out if they are able in terms of donating money or tools to replace those which were stolen in case the person or persons responsible are never caught.

The second is for my friend Kim. She has been going through some rough patches right now and she is really stressed and depressed. I wish I could help her but I really have no idea of what I could do to help her at this moment.

The third is for my friend Kim's friend Rich. He was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year and has been receiving treatment. However, so far, he has not achieved remission and just recently, both of his siblings were tested to see if either would be a match for Rich if he reachs the point where his only hope will be a BMT. He is worried about this. He is also worried about how he is going to pay for all his medical bills as his insurance isn't covering any of this due to a technicality.

Thanks guys.

kruszer: Powerful new music video

Have any of you seen this new music video. by Nick Cannon? He's a modern secular hip-hop artist, but his message is quite poignant as he tells it from his own personal testimony. You may have heard the song on the radio, but if you get the chance to see the video (it's also playing on MTV apparently) it's absolutely incredible. Share the link in your journals and emails if you appreciate it.

Go HERE. and click on one of the three media options (the song will start playing automatically when you get to that site, if you have flash, but you'll want actually play the video as much of his story is told through the visual).

Considering this video and song is based on his own true story, I think it's one of the most touching things I've seen from a secular artist.

If for some reason you can't get the video to play, or you can't hear the song, (or if you can't make out all the words) then the lyrics (which I swiped and corrected from another fan site) are here:


[Talking]
I'm Talking Mama
I know the Situation is Personal
But it something that has to be told
As I was making this beat
You was all I could think about
you heard my voice

[Verse 1]
Yeah Just think Just Think
What if you could Just
Just blink your self away..
Just Just wait just pause for a second

Let me plead my case
It's the late 70's Huh
You Seventeen huh
And having me that will ruin everything huh
It's alot of angels waiting on there wings
You see me in your sleep so you cant kill your dreams
300 Dollars thats the price of living? what?
Mommy I dont like this clinic
Hopefully you'll make the right decision
And dont go through with the Knife Decision
But it hard to make the right move
When you in high school
How you have to work all day and take night school
Hopping off da bus when the rain is pouring
What you want morning sickness or the Sickness of morning?
Can I live?

[Chorus]
I'll Always Be apart of you
Trust Your Soul Know it's always true
If I Could Talk I Would Say To You
CAN I LIVE
CAN I LIVE
I Will Always Be apart of you
Trust Your Soul Know it's always true
If I Could Talk I Would Say To You
CAN I LIVE
CAN I LIVE

[Verse 2]
I am a child of the king
Ain't no need to go fear me
And I see the flowing tears so know that you hear me
When I move in your womb that's me being scared
Cause who knows what my future holds
Yo the truth be told you ain't told a soul
Yo you ain't even showing I'm just 2 months old
Thorough your clothes try to hide me deny me
Went up 3 sizes
Your pride got you lying saying ain't nothing but a migraine
It ain't surprising you not trying to be in Wic food lines
Your friends look at you funny but look at you mommy
Thatz a life inside you look at your tummy
What is becoming ma I'm Oprah bound
You can tell he's a star from the Ultrasound
Our Sprits Connected Doors Open Now
Nothing But Love And Respect Thanks For Holding Me Down She Let Me Live...

[Chorus]
I'll Always Be apart of you
Trust Your Soul Know it's always true
If I Could Talk I Would Say To You
CAN I LIVE
CAN I LIVE
I Will Always Be apart of you
Trust Your Soul Know it's always true
If I Could Talk I Would Say To You
CAN I LIVE
CAN I LIVE
[Repeat 2]

[Nick Talking]

It's uplifting foreal y'all
I ain't passing no judgement
Ain't making no decisions
I am just telling ya'll my story
I love life
I love my mother for giving me life
We all need to appreciate life
Cause there's a strong woman who had to make a sacrifice
Thanks for listening
Thanks for listening
Mama thanks for listening
