It is better to be an outcast, a stranger in one’s own country, than an outcast from one’s self. It is better to see what is about to befall us and to resist than to retreat into the fantasies embraced by a nation of the blind.

Ella Fitzgerald was a gifted dancer and was selected to perform at the Apollo Theatre. Unfortunately, she broke her ankle the week before and was heartbroken. Her father said, "you've got such a lovely voice, why don't you sing?"
She did. She won. And the rest is history.
I have another friend and her name is Peti. She was born on route through a forest where no roads ran. She made it somehow and became a wonderful person in my church. She has a wonderful daughter too. How is it that no other man can see what I see. She is a gifted woman of God. To be truthful she is a handful, but brethren think of the adventure before you!
