MOM’S EMPTY CHAIR
A woman’s daughter had asked the local minister
to come and pray with her mother.
When the minister arrived,
he found the woman lying in bed with her head
propped up on two pillows.
An empty chair sat beside her bed.
The minister assumed that the woman
had been informed of his visit…
’I guess you were expecting me, he said.
’No, who are you?’ said the mother.
The minister told her his name and then remarked,
’I saw the empty chair and I figured you knew
I was going to show up..’
’Oh yeah, the chair,’ said the bedridden woman
’Would you mind closing the door?’
Puzzled, the minister shut the door.
’I have never told anyone this,
not even my daughter,’ said the woman.
’But all of my life I have never
known how to pray.
At church I used to hear the pastor talk about prayer,
but it went right over my head…’
I abandoned any attempt at prayer,’
the old woman continued, ’
until one day four years ago, my best friend said to me,
’ Prayer is just a simple matter
of having a conversation with Jesus.
Here is what I suggest..
’Sit down in a chair;
place an empty chair in front of you,
and in faith see Jesus on the chair.
It’s not spooky because he promised,
’I will be with you always’..
’Then just speak to him in the same way
you’re doing with me right now…’
’So, I tried it and I’ve liked it so much
that I do it a couple of hours every day.
I’m careful though. If my daughter saw me talking
to an empty chair, she’d either have a nervous breakdown
or send me off to the funny farm.’
The minister was deeply moved by the story and
encouraged the old woman to continue on the journey.
Then he prayed with her, anointed her with oil,
and returned to the church.
Two nights later the daughter called
to tell the minister that her mama
had died that afternoon.
Did she die in peace?’ he asked.
Yes, when I left the house about two o’clock,
she called me over to her bedside,
told me she loved me and kissed me on the cheek.
When I got back from the store an hour later,
I found her .
But there was something strange about her death.
Apparently, just before Mom died,
she leaned over and rested her head on the chair
beside the bed. What do you make of that?’
The minister wiped a tear from his eye and said,
’I wish we could all go like that.’
Just send this to four people or more,
and do not break this, please.
Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive.
I asked God for water, He gave me an ocean.*
I asked God for a flower, He gave me a garden.*
I asked God for a friend, He gave me all of YOU…
If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
Happy moments, praise God.
Difficult moments, seek God.
Quiet moments, worship God
Painful moments, trust God.
Every moment, thank God.
Pass this message to seven people
except you and me.
Ask God for peace and see what a transformation will take place in your life.
50 Cent Calls Puff Daddy’s ”Big Homie” Record ”Garbage”
During an interview with Baltimore’s 92Q Jams, 50 Cent gave credit to fellow artist Puff Daddy for remaining relevant in music for so long, but also revealed that the Bad Boy Records founder doesn’t have any music that anyone would want to hear. He then called Puff’s “Big Homie” record, which features Rick Ross and French Montana, garbage.
While commending Puff for being relevant without having to release any music, 50 Cent also gave credit to Jay Z for being an artist who has remained relevant throughout his career.
“If the guy doesn’t have significant savvy with the actual business or with the actual culture he’ll be out of here,” said 50 Cent when asked about artist expiration dates. “You’ll see Jay around as long as he’s been around. What he’s on like 11 albums? Puff’s still out there. He don’t even need a record. Cause he don’t got one. Like you know Puffy ain’t got no music that you wanna hear. That ‘Big Homie’ shit is garbage. I’mma keep it all the way real with you. Because the guy says ‘Don’t worry about if I write my rhymes, I write checks.’ And then sings to you.”
50 Cent also addressed his upcoming album, Animal Ambition, which he again referred to as a project about prosperity. He commented on the project being the second half of a journey that started with his debut album, Get Rich Or Die Tryin’.
“The whole project is about prosperity,” he said. “They’ll look at some of my creative choices and go ‘Oh no, you can’t write like that no more. You rich.’ And then I go ‘But how you think I got rich?’ I wrote this giving you portions of my journey. And it’s what actually got me here. Like Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ was all the dysfunctional behaviors I experienced. It had everything that was in the environment that I came across. Whether it was ‘P.I.M.P.’ or ‘High All The Time.’ The junkie—When you see a guy that is actually high all the time, you understand why I actually wrote ‘High All The Time.’ It’s just me actually using things literally around me. This project is even easier to pinpoint real cool things to write about because of the actual second half of that actual journey.”
In a past interview with Sonic Electronix, 50 Cent described Animal Ambition as a project about prosperity and also compared the LP to The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Warning.”
“With Animal Ambition, the project is about prosperity,” he said at the top of this year. “I got an interesting way of writing it, ‘cause I wrote it from a distorted vision or viewpoint. When Biggie was doing ‘Damn, niggas wanna stick me for my paper, damn,’ that’s about when you get something, the effects of others responding to you doing better. The jealousies connected to it, there’s so many different ways to write it, that the album has those facets to it. The overall theme is ambition and prosperity.”

Well if it’s because of conflict and yall our Fam then I feel like yall should just call a meeting set pride aside and fix it…….. Sometimes everything we make a problem is not a problem…. Sometimes we got to agree to disagree and move forward with the vision…..
nah, nothing like that. just have different views on how to approach the music biz. it was best we get out of each other’s way.
together we stand divided we fall. i am sure if you both did it your own ways while adopting each others strategy you would see that it still reaps a rich reward.
Put 2 brilliant minds together and meet in the middle
DID U EVEN MAKE A CHECK WIT DAT NIGGA HE SEEM LIKE HE DONT KNO TOMUCH BOUT THE MUSIC BUSINESS
Hope everything works out!!!
Best of luck to the both of u.
WAT EVER PATH U TAKE..I WISH U ALL MUCH SUCCESS!
