She’s singing about being Thankful for the life she has.
“This is Leonise as she stands in front of the small home in Haiti she shares with 11 other family members. Leonise’s angelic voice and endearing story of an impoverished yet appreciative life were brought to light by San Antonio’s KENS5 morning news anchor Sarah Forgany during a recent visit to Leonise’s Haitian Village.”
Praise Break…” a moment after God has done something marvelous or where we remembered just how awesome He really is and we were compelled to just break out into a song, dance or simply words of thanksgiving and praise. Source: http://www.praisebreaklive.com/
For most of us, after watching moments like this our hearts and minds will be filled with love and gratitude and then unfortunately somehow we slowly and unintentionally return to our unconsciously unappreciative selves. My personal challenge and my challenge to you is to hold to this state of gratitude and appreciation for as long as we can. It is said that if we do something repeatedly over a period of 21 days then it becomes a habit. So, for the next 21 days, Ill begin my day with this video in an effort to create and maintain a consistent and habitual state of gratitude and Oh My Godness.
I am immensely grateful for people like Ed Dobson, who midst great change and challenge are able to GET UP and contniue to seek purpose and be of service.
Moments like this reflect the divine spark of God that abides within us all…Enjoy!
John P. Kee (born John Prince Kee on June 4, 1962) is an American gospel singer and pastor. Kee has been active for more than 20 years in the music field. In 2007 Kee was inducted into the Christian Music Hall of Fame. Kee is also known as “The Prince of Gospel Music”.
John P. Kee was born the 15th of 16 children in Durham, North Carolina. At an early age he began to develop his musical talent both instrumentally and vocally. He attended the North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem and at 14, he and his brothers Wayne and Al moved to California where he began attending the Yuba College Conservatory School of Music in Marysville, California. During this time, he began playing with various groups such as Cameo and Donald Byrd and the Blackbyrds. After having a hard time adjusting in California, he left and moved to Charlotte, North Carolina only to find himself living in a part of the city known for its violence and drug activities. After watching one of his friends being murdered in a drug deal gone bad, he rededicated his life back to God during a visitation to a revival meeting.
Ministry Kee says that it was during a trip to Michigan with his choir that he received a calling from God to be a preacher. Kee was in his mid-twenties when he became an ordained minister. In 1995, while ministering in Ohio, he received a prophetic vision and went forward with the building of a Fellowship Center in Charlotte which could minister to the people in the community. He officially founded the New Life Fellowship Center where he became and remains the senior pastor. The church is located in the same area where he had once led a life of crime and drugs.
Each soul is potentially divine. The goal is to manifest this divinity within by controlling nature: external and internal. Do this either by work, or worship, or psychic control, or philosophy– by one, or more or all of these — and be free.
He is the founder of The Divine Life Society (1936), Yoga-Vedanta Forest Academy (1948) and author of over 200 books on yoga, vedanta and a variety of other subjects. He established Sivananda Ashram, the location of the headquarters of The Divine Life Society (DLS), on the bank of the Ganges at Shivanandanagar, at a distance of 3 kilometres from Rishikesh
Born September 8, 1887- Died July 14, 1963
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
