The Book of H&T (Book 13)

Hello America,

I am on my way to work.  This job I have is frustrated because it is dependent on consumer sentiment and feedback.  Sometimes that's a good thing, sometimes it ain't.

Getting a little down because I turned down a lucrative job for this job because of the mobility of it, wasn't aware of the temporary status of it until I was well into the job.........

I am just like you worried about how bills are going to get paid.

BUT I know where I fit into the body of Christ, I know where I fit into the body of my community, I know where I fit into the body of my nation.

So I was reading the morning paper, and I want to share with you what is going to get me through today,

what is going to release the stress of worrying about things I can't control..........

what makes me not even lose a wink of sleep with the purposeful non-inclusion of the candidate who can beat Obama.............

Vince Carter...........

I'm serious.

Right now, the Dallas Mavericks are the champs, but they were wrote off the moment they won.........

Tyson gone........

JJ gone..........

Caron gone (such a joy! to see you wrecking havoc on the court, good to see that juice still "tuff")

And now they got some older players..........

Odom aint found his rhythm.

But one player, I thought when they signed him was more important anyone was Vince Carter.

Not b/c of his stats, but b/c before there was Superman........b/c of cape.

This man flew............... flight......... folk.............

And for some reason or another, he never really ended on teams that had a chance until later in his career.

He came in this season, and did okay and got hurt, but came back and I can't remember what game as the Mavs lost the game, but there was something in his step.............

that let me know that Vince ain't worried about being the star............

Vince ain't worried about being the 6th man of the year............

Vince worried about being the best Vince he can be............

Damn...............a man who knows his place in the body of his team..........

A man who is comfortable with doing what he needs to do regardless of whether he gets the press he deserves or not.

A man who realizes that all of those years of experience all culminate into what he needs to succeed everyday on the floor....................


So the shot from the Dallas Morning News, the photography department ran by a Pulitzer Prize Winning director I might add...........

Aint from the Mavs winning the game and West clinching the game with some free throws.

It's of Vince flexing, showing that as far he was concerned the battle was won in the first half, because he knows as long as he is helping his body, his team, that no weapon, no team shall prosper against them and in the long run, the championship ring that alluded him in his story career is here........for the taking.........

Vince is saying what we going to get up and say this morning.........

I grew up in a black baptist church, one of the biggest revivals is around this time for me.  And I remember the days of 500 plus youth choirs so mass choir songs....... mean something to me.

We are going to get up this morning, and we make our Vince curls with our arms,

and we are going to tell these bills, our enemies, these politicians named Rick, Barack and Mitt all with health care connections that

We made it, we survived
You all not going to run our lives
Our game is sho nuff planted
Devine protection
No weapon formed
Shall prosper against us
We made it this far, by faith
Y'all values and bull not going to divide us today
We on some Vince Carter ways, we made it
we survived
We a Survivor!!(x3)

We are the brand of liberty
We define the word unity
We have to pray constantly
We made it
We made it (x3)

Thank God, Allah, whomever you need to do today, that you made it, we made it, we as a nation made it.

Let us learn from somebody who certainly didn't imagine his career being where it is now, but is taking every lesson he learned along the way

to ensure that he as a body part in the body called his team, is functioning to the best of his ability......

Let's get our Vince on!

Let's show the beltway, our enemies, all those that plot against us...........

We made it!

HAVE A GREAT DAY! and I'll be back tomorrow...


Happy Valentine's Day!  I love you............
