Oprah Succeeded Again~Warming My Soul In Memory Of....

Monday, March 12, 2012

Whitney Houston. This was the evening of Oprah's interview~ the first one with Whitney Houston's sorrowful death~with her brother, sister in law (best friend of more than 20 years, and her manager), as well as Whitney's one and only Beautiful 19 Daughter(Bobbi Christine) sp? . Oh how I knew, it would be touch me soul deep, warming my heart, exactly the way that Whitney herself did from the time I was a young girl.

This is a prime example, of how I see beyond far beyond news(coffee shop jibber, and even some of my own family members who to this day come to visit to see if I've "HEARD," AND WOULD I MAKE A CALL TO CONFIRM what they heard in a SALON OF ALLLL PLACES("NO WAY, NOT A CHANCE")!!!! Those are the reasons I often ignore the familiar knock at the door, and shut my cell phone OFF, during certain times of the day, as well as early evening. Avoiding those who so often thrive bleak, hungering for the NEGATIVE, doing all in their power to create a stir, when in reality~ 99.9% OF THE TIME, THAT INDIVIDUAL IS AN INCREDIBLE HUMAN BEING, WHO HAS (or had) 100's of years of love, compassion, lessons in love, honor, and whom I will go to my grave believing their life may have been short lived, as they came into this world with a DIVINE PURPOSE~A GLORIOUS MESSAGE FROM GOD ABOVE, shared through that individual's own heavenly granted talents, the ability to connect with millions of individuals of any ethnic group, age group, current living situation, and from the back ground as well, from which they lived. This my dear spark Family is who Whitney Houston shall forever be in my heart.

Amazingly, I learned the bond she shared with her Daughter, is one in the same, as the one I am blessed to share with my own Daughter, and soooo the one I long to have again with my son, when the time is right for him. Both of my children know, that for many years I've been preparing them to spread their wings and fly~far beyond what they consider their wildest dreams "of the ultimate meaning of happiness, and making it in this world, whether I am still physically here on earth, or sending them kisses with angel dust~day and night....for the rest of their lives." They know I will always be with them, and what a precious, most feeling that is for all of us. Death isn't a horrible thing, it is the ultimate beginning into eternity sweet.....if we have "Believed."

Awwww to see the good in others, feel the warmth the emit, treasure and count our blessings for the oppertunity to have had them in our lives (even if they are, or were a Vocal Icon, who honestly didn't know us).....if there are people in your life, who have moved you heart and soul, sprinkled angel dust upon you while still living, loved you through the good, the bad, and the ugly~God Bless Them.....Let Them Know! For our lives are truly in God's hands. He knows our time line, he knows Allllll, and still Loves us unconditionally....just waiting for us~to Thank him, and to invite him into our lives, our hearts, and our souls. He knows if we will be a loner, who is still capible of reaching out to millions making a difference in their lives. He knows which of us will see no flaws, and excuses us from answering the door when we know it's somebody(even if it's a family member) who's goal is to talk gossip, trash, or smut. Smiling softly......this I am, and counting my every blessing for Spark friends who have become extended family~like myself....seeing beyond what could become tabloid trash about myself, and loving me whole heartedly......."JUST FOR BEING ME." Thank you from the bottom of my heart. What A Difference You Have Made In My LIfe.

R.I.P. DEAR SWEET VOCAL ICON "WHITNEY ELIZABETH HOUSTON," ACTRESS, MOTHER, SISTER, DAUGHTER, SISTER IN LAW, AND FRIEND to millions whom she actually knew, and others, who's lives changed because of her Gift's She Shared With the World in her short 48 years of life on earth. May Every Positive Of her MEMORY LIVE ON.....INTO ETERNITY SWEET.


Angel Blessings Always,
~Diane~ emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Diane, most people just seem to thrive on something to talk about each other, whether or not they even know the person personally that they are talking about.

    Gossip is like murder in the old testament in the bible.

    You are so very smart and wise to stay away from those people who acturally crave bad things to say about another person.

    Yes, we should see others through the eyes of Jesus, the eyes of love and grace and forgiveness all the time no matter what, stay and walk in love.

    Love is the most valuable gift that one can give to another.

    VERy nice blog! So true and I'm so proud of you for staying away from any potential gossip. That is my biggest sin-and the most horrid sin of all(according to a dear Italian priest at our parish).
    I,too, was shocked when I heard that Whitney had died-I didn't pay much attention to tabloids so didn't know that she had troubles with drugs(not that tabloids tell the 'real news'.)Her voice was amazing and yes, she was definitely blessed with a means to touch people's hearts.

    I don't watch Oprah so didn't see that show, but agree totally with you that we need to remember Whitney Houston as we would hope others would remember us - for the good and positive in life and not for the ways in which we have failed. She was a gifted woman, gone much too soon and I pray she knew Jesus as her Savior. When all is said and done in this life, that is all that matters.
