Toni Braxton hospitalized in Las Vegas

The HOT mega grammy winning singing super star, Toni Braxton (she performs these days at the Flamingo hotel/casino) was hospitalized in Las Vegas yesterday due to chest pains. That scared me. A man at my kickboxing gym in good health just went through that and didn't make it. I hope that Toni's story has a different outcome. She is still young, active in her career and very much in shape.

You know this news got me to thinking. I feel like God has been trying to teach me something. And it is a message about how to really live life to please and obey Him by His standards not the watered down, selfish, angry, and excuse filled model that many choose to take part in today. I've been listening to different stories about life and how it is not known how or when or why it ends when it does but i do know this: it is not promised that the life given to us will be long. I pray for Toni and her family now. And I pray for everyone here that they will not take their lives for granted. Strive towards being grateful, remembering what is REALLY important in this life (non material) and treating others with love and respect. I want a heart to obey God. And Lord please help me to work on it with faith daily. Amen.

"Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams. For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, he has rejected you as king"- 1 Samuel 15:22,23

  1. I will definitely be praying for Toni. Maven you are so right things can happen so unexpectedly to someone who is close to you are maybe not. I do believe God is trying to get everyones attention. He got mines and I will fight to live a life that is obedient to his word and not some waterdown version of his word to fit my lifestyle. It's all about going against what feels good and do what is right!


That's what I have to say. So what do YOU think? I thrive on conversation and insight. Agree or disagree or digress and leave a comment and express thyself..
