Sunday Scripture

Some Assembly Required (2)

It was a great message and a great sermon on a great day at Living Waters in Homestead Florida. Our Lead Pastor Bob preached on the power of the Holy Spirit in his sermon titled “Breath Of God, Breathe On Us” based on John 20:22 and 3:5, Acts 2:1-4, Luke 24:32, Exodus 3:2 and 13:21-22, Leviticus 6:13 and 9:24, Numbers 3:4, and 2 Chronicles 7:1.

Then He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” (John 20:22 NLT)

DON’T LET THE FIRE GO OUT !

Today is my 6TH Anniversary on Facebook. I was one of the last of my friends to join Facebook due to peer pressure. I created an account on Easter Sunday March 31ST 2013. It was supposed to be an elaborate April Fool’s Day joke, but it backfired.

The first 3 years on Facebook were fun. I tried this blog on Facebook, and it started out strong but then it quickly faded after that. None of my friends really cared to read a 5-minute blog about my journey once or twice per weekend. Nowadays I’m just a lurker and occasional commenter of other peoples’ posts on Facebook.

WordPress is where I belong. I get to blog alongside fellow bloggers !

I’ll be back tomorrow night with my new Top 10 music chart for this weekend. No April Foolin’ !

My Top 5 Hits RETRO – 1989

Every Friday night I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from either 10, 20, or 30 years ago (rotating each week). Here it is – for the week ending Sunday March 26TH 1989:

  1. “I Beg Your Pardon” – Kon Kan
  2. “Soldier Of Love” – Donny Osmond
  3. “My Prerogative” – Bobby Brown
  4. “Like A Prayer” – Madonna
  5. “Wild Thing” – Tone Loc

I remember when my local Top 40 radio station – Y-100 (Miami) – first started playing “Soldier Of Love”. They withheld the artist of the song so that we could hear it, like it, and request it without prejudice. It worked, and it became a hit before we discovered that it was child star Donny Osmond singing it. Once that was revealed the hit became a # 2 smash from coast to coast. It began a short comeback for Donny, as it was his biggest hit in 18 years since he was 13.

Nationwide Casey Kasem counted down the hits on “Casey’s Top 40”, and Shadoe Stevens did the same on “American Top 40” on this Easter Weekend in 1989. The results were the same. Mike And The Mechanics scored the new # 1 smash from coast to coast with “The Living Years”. It replaced Debbie Gibson’s “Lost In Your Eyes”.

It’s halftime my friends. I’ll be back on Sunday and Monday with two more blog posts for this weekend. Enjoy your Saturday. Make memories that will last a lifetime !
