Oh my goodness. I have a feeling the healing for Mrs. Raymond is not ready to take place just yet, here is a clip of her ET exclusive interview. In the clip she's discussing the issue of Usher cheating with her bridesmaid.

With all that Tameka has gone through in the past 4months, the passing of her son Kile, as a result of a jet ski accident, then losing custody of her two young sons to Usher, I give her credit that she's still able to carry on. As someone who lost a child of my own, I understand some of what she is going through. I really just hope that she will take the necessary time she needs to just allow God to truly heal her! Before doing anything else, another interview, going back to court, making any attempts to defend her character...anything! Just let God heal her. But I have a feeling this is probably the mild version of what she's going to reveal in this interview.


Gospel artist, Abigail Hamilton has a awesome new song, I Won't Move. The song is off her latest album, Let It Rain. Be inspired!

Yesterday Chris Brown was due in court for his probation hearing (Rihanna assault case). The singer let it be known via twitter, that he just want to get these 5yrs over with (the amount of time he is on probation) by tweeting:

 Well, the hearing went well, but not so well. Chris tested positive for marijuana, and the judge basically let him off with a warning...THIS TIME. But hey with the way the media, & anti-breezy fans constantly berate him, I'm just happy it wasn't something more intense, ie..Crack/Coke..heck the pressure this 23yr. old is under is just crazy. I'm not giving him a pass, because if you want to reap good, then from your bad decisions you must know that the BAD IS COMING.

Nonetheless, Chris got some support from his #1 girl (uh Ms. Fenty herself, Rihanna. The pop start tweeted her support for ex (I'm not sure they are not already back together, but simply trying to ease us into it).

Which is the mild version of what she said first, but simply not @ Chris in the process

The Bajan beauty simply put, is no holds barred. Rihanna is not concerned with Chris's supposedly girlfriend Karrachue Tran, nor what the public think of her forgiveness of Chris, or the fact that she still considers him the love of her life. And nor should she. I have learned in cases such as these, as friends, family, fans,'s only your job to advice (honestly when asked for it), and then pray...because when people are forced to be apart, it only drives them to become closer. The only thing I hope they understand at this point is simply this...they are no longer those same two people 3 1/2 years ago, they both have changed! And in order to have a good healthy relationship of any kind, they must see if they even like who each other has become and move on from there. They can't base a new relationship on the old one, because it will not work...actually the past is what will tear them apart. Yet to see Rihanna forgive Chris is probably the best gift she could have not only giving him, but herself. Now as for

I for one am surely rooting for Chris to grow, mature, and excel at becoming a man who understands his position in life.

 This week we have some great music in R/B that will be released. On 9/25 Ciara will finally release her hot new single, Sorry, to her fans. The single/video was released with great anticipation from her fans, and received well. I really hope that LA Reid/Epic do not allow the momentum of the buzz of the single to die down. I'm one that loves to check twitter for what's hot among certain stars, and even though I know people are all about what's happening today...the buzz for Ciara, and her Csquad died down rather quickly. If I'm Ciara (especially since in every interview she is stating that she is being more vulnerable now in her music & personal life) then "tease" the fans, do tweet (hey Csquad who do you think the song is about) will have twitter buzz for at least a couple of She can do that without ever even saying (at least until she's ready). But in this day of social media fans seem more closer to their favorite artists...just a suggestion. Be sure to cop the new single.

 Angie Stone is back with a brand new album: Rich Girl. The soulful singer/songwriter definitely has something that we as fans can't get enough of...genuineness in her music. Be sure to cop the new album on 9/25.

Heather Headley drops another hot new album: Only One In The World on 9/25. The "In My Mind" hit singer/songwriter, recently released a gospel album, but returns to the r/b world with this album.


SO, SINCE Christ suffered in the flesh for us, for you , arm yourselves with the same thought and purpose [patiently to suffer rather than fail to please God]. For whoever has suffered in the flesh [having the mind of Christ] is done with[intentional] sin [has stopped pleasing himself and the world, and pleases God], So that he can no longer spend the rest of his natural life living by [his] human appetites and desires, but [he lives]for what God wills.

The year was 1997, and Lil Kim gathered together some of the hottest female mc's in the game: Left Eye (R.I.P.), Da Brat, Missy Elliot, & Angie Martinez, for her joint, Ladies Night. With the return of Missy Elliot to the game, (her new singles 9th Inning, & Triple Threat), I decided that I would dedicate this throwback Thursday to the ladies.

Also check out one of my favorite female groups of all time, TLC..with their multi-platinum album, Crazy, Sexy, Cool, these women definitely represented! Check out "Creep" and if we could only have another group that could bring even a 1/3 of what T-Boz, Chilli, & Left Eye gave us.

And one more favorite female collaboration, that proves when you get the best together, hits can be made, that become classics. That brings me to Brandy's "I Wanna Be Down (remix)"...that boasted MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, & YoYo.

Now this is what I'm talking about. Trina drop her hot remix to MMG's Actin Up, off the Self Made Volume 2 album. She also brought along with her 2 of the hottest necomers in the game with 3D Na Tee & Taylor Gang's Lola Monroe. Now that Missy has dropped new music I'm hoping that the female emcees will step there game up and get it popping again. Only thing that could make this remix better is if Da Brat jumped on it.

 Thinking back on some of my prayer journals, I remember during prayer the Lord saying: "I have given you a dowry fit for a king."-That just continues to make me realize that any man won't do. My dowry is specifically designed for someone, and it's important that I understand that. It's not being "picky" it's understanding what's inside of you, and who deserves what you have to give, & whose built to love me through it all. What I have to offer, every man will not be able to receive, or recognize it for it's greatness. To those it will sound like nagging, or something worthless. But to the one it's designed to help, it will be fresh water springing up from my well, that has been made deep by the Holy Spirit, in order from him to be able to drink from daily. 

Well I came across this write up about DOWRY...CHECK IT OUT!

Written by Aleathea Dupree, Copyright © All Rights Reserved.
"He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD." Proverbs 18:22

There are two kinds of husbands in this world: those who recognize and celebrate the true value of their wives, and those who do not. The husbands who recognize and celebrate the value of their wives reap a harvest of perpetual wealth and abundant blessings in their marriages. The husbands who fail to recognize and celebrate the true value of their wives rob themselves of the riches of the full benefits God intends when He blesses a man with a wife. Regardless of a husband’s response or recognition, there is something of tremendous value that God gives to every wife: He gives her a dowry of Divine favor.

Traditionally, a dowry is something of great value that is provided by a father for his daughter to bring with her into marriage. The purpose of the dowry is to help the husband take proper care of his wife, and to protect the wife against ill treatment by her husband. In the same way, when one of God’s daughters marries, God provides a divine dowry of special favor that she brings with her into the marriage. This divine dowry of special favor positions the husband and provides him with the opportunity to obtain preferential treatment and special regard from God because of his wife.

The unmarried man is not the beneficiary of this particular kind of favor: it is reserved for the man who “finds a wife.” Since this special favor is only available to the man who takes a wife, evidently, it is favor that God knows he needs in order to have good success in his role as a husband. This special favor is a gift — a special grace — from God to put the husband in the most advantageous position to take care of his wife and make progress in his marriage.

The key to the husband receiving this special favor is in understanding that this gift is a wellspring that God allows to flow through the wife. The key to releasing the flow of this favor lies in how the husband treats his wife. The more favorably the husband treats his wife, the more this special favor flows into the marriage. Conversely, the less favorably the husband treats his wife, the less Divine preferential treatment or special regard he receives.

The husband must receive this favor, or more accurately, obtain it, which implies that it will require some effort on his part to draw it out. This favor does not just come with the wife and work on the husband's behalf no matter how he treats her. It's a flow. It flows out of and through her life into her husband's life to bless him and to help him. Because it is a flow, it can be dammed up or pumped up. If the husband treats his wife well, this special favor of God will flow freely. But, if the husband mistreats his wife, he will block the flow and that favor will not work for him. As a matter of fact, it can even work against him.
To see how the favor a wife brings can work against a husband, consider these two passages spoken directly to husbands in Malachi 2:13-14 and 1 Peter 3:7:
And this you do with double guilt; you cover the altar of the Lord with tears [shed by your unoffending wives, divorced by you that you might take heathen wives], and with [your own] weeping and crying out because the Lord does not regard your offering any more or accept it with favor at your hand.

Yet you ask, Why does He reject it? Because the Lord was witness [to the covenant made at your marriage] between you and the wife of your youth, against whom you have dealt treacherously and to whom you were faithless. Yet she is your companion and the wife of your covenant [made by your marriage vows]. (Amplified)

In this passage in Malachi, these husbands placed themselves in a position of God's displeasure because they have "dealt treacherously" towards their wives. Treachery in marriage (which God hates), particularly on the husband's part, often results in divorce (which God also hates). I believe that every marriage that ends in divorce can be traced back to treacherous dealings within the marriage. Suffice it to say, dealing treacherously is a major favor blocker.

The word treacherous means to be:
  • Deceptive: leading someone to believe what is not true; giving a false impression
  • Faithless: not adhering to allegiance, promises, vows, or duty; ready to betray trust; traitorous
  • Untrustworthy: not deserving of trust or confidence; undependable; unreliable
  • Dangerous: causing danger; perilous; risky; hazardous; unsafe; able or likely to cause physical injury
  • Unstable: unsteady; likely to sway; wavering; unsettled; easily moved, shaken or overthrown

The favor that the wife brings into the marriage gives the husband an opportunity to gain special regard from God. However, if the husband acts treacherously towards his wife in any of the above ways, God says He will “not regard” the husband when he comes before Him. God provides us with additional insight as He repeats this thought in 1 Peter 3:7:

In the same way you married men should live considerately with [your wives], with an intelligent recognition [of the marriage relation], honoring the woman as [physically] the weaker, but [realizing that you] are joint heirs of the grace (God's unmerited favor) of life, in order that your prayers may not be hindered and cut off. [Otherwise you cannot pray effectively.] (Amplified)
What is the significance of the husband's offering or prayers being hindered and cut off? Our offerings and prayers to God are not for God's benefit: they are for our benefit, so that we can receive from Him the answers we need and the blessings He wants to pour into our lives. In both the passage in Malachi 2 and in 1 Peter 3, the husband is held responsible for the treatment of his wife, and in both instances, the husband's ability to receive from God is hindered and cut off if he mistreats his wife.
