I May Be the Only One, but I Read the Books Inside a CD. I Read the Names of the Creative Souls that Made These Tunes That Will Soundtrack Parts of My Life. I Read the Thank You’s, the Vision, the Artists Last Words for the Project as They Let It Out Their Fingers & Hand it Over for Printing & Then I Cry. I Cry for the Joy They Must Feel Having Accomplished This Task. I Cry for the Nerves They Must Feel Awaiting the Worlds Feedback on Their Hearts Sacrifice. Because the Lyrics Say Everything I’m Thinking. Cause the Melodies are Perfect.
I Cry b/c the One Pictured Here is Female & Radio Will More Than Likely Not Give Her the Air Time She Deserves. I Cry b/c the One Pictures isn’t “traditional” Country & So Some Will Automatically Snub It, They Will Also Miss Out On Some if the Most Celestial Sounds Ever Tracked, but I Digress. I Cry b/c @spaceykacey Is Only One of Many Female Artists Not Getting the Air Time They Deserve!! I Cry b/c as a “Fan” My Voice Seems SO Impossibly Small!!!!
These Days the #Outlaws of Country are #Female!! They are the BA’s Ruffling Feathers, Marching to Their Own Beat, Making Music by Their Own Rules via Outlets Like Social Media, Kick Starter, Etc. & They are Making GOOD Music!! It isn’t About One of Them Getting to “the top”, it’s About ALL of Them Getting to the Top!!!! Request Female Artists, Download/Stream Female Artists, Buy in Store & On Line fr Female Artists!! As Females We Aren’t Interested in Doing What a Man Can Do & Doing it Better, We Want to Do What a Man Can’t!!!

Just a Few of My Fave Looks from Tonights @acmawards. @lindsayell Was on Everything (vocal, exercise, etc.) Rest This Week Due to Illness, but She Still Looked Fierce & Fit!! @marenmorris Had Multiple Looks This Evening, but I Might Love Her Blue Carpet Look Best. Its Kinda Giving Me Glam Mermaid Vibes. The Fellas are ALWAYS A Coin Toss When it Comes to What They Will Bring Fashi...on Wise to a Awards Show, but as w the #Oscars I Lean Toward the Fellas in the Bold, Solid Color Suits. @jakeowenofficial Sported the @pantone Color of the Year, #UltraViolet. That is a Choice That Could’ve Gone Drastically Wrong, but it Actually Worked & I Loved It!! Also, Lead Singer of @olddominionmusic Wore a Pine Green Suit That I Thought Really
Stood Out & Looked Sharp.
I Could Not Overlook One of the Cutest Blue Carpet Guests of the Night, Charlie Clawson. She is Daughter to Two Nashville Writers of Whom You Have No Doubt Been Humming Along to Their Lyrics for A While Now, Rodney and Nicolle Clawson. Pictured Here with Nicolle Gaylon Clawson, Her Mother, Nashville Writer, Co-Writer and Part of Those Breathy Vocals on Keith Urbans Recent Release, #Female. Charlie was the Smartest Female on the Blue Carpet at the ACM's as She Did Not Abandon Glam for Comfort. She Chose a Shoe That Covered Both!!
There is Much to Discuss So Stay Tuned for Upcoming #GlamBag & #NewMusicMonday Posts Coming Soon to the #FaithJournals!! ~

~ Unicorn Gum, an Answer to Prayer ~ April 12th, 2018 ~

No automatic alt text available.
You May See This & Think it’s Just a Pack of Unicorn Gum, but it’s Not. To Me, it Was an Answer to a Prayer. This Morning Before My Feet Hit the Ground I was Begging the Lord for a Little Extra. Little Extra Energy, Little Extra Strength, Extra Grace, Extra Peace, & That I Needed a Little Extra Encouragement Somehow fr Somewhere. I Grumbled Out of the Bed, Began My Routine & My Heart So Heavy I Almost Need a Wheel Barrel to Carry it Around. Instantly I’m Confronted w All the Reasons I Think I Need All Those “Extras” for & as I Walk to the Mailbox I Ask the Lord is He Even Listening?!?!
Well, Sometimes He Silently Speaks Back & Sometimes He Tangibly & Audibly Speaks Back. Thanks to the Friend Who Obeyed the Lords Leading Days Ago in Writing a Thoughtful Note & Sending Unicorn Gum. The Lord Knows Me. He Knows My Needs & He Also Knows the Things I Like & Love Like Unicorns & Candy. Before I Had Even Asked Him for Just a Little Something Extra, He Was Already Preparing it.
There Will Be Good Days. There Will Be Bad Days. There Will Be Very Bad Days. He Remains the Same, Good & Merciful. I Pray the Day Brings You a Little Something Extra to Help Get Ya Through!!

When You Get So Tickled You Need Your Inhaler....and a Seeing Eye Dog!! #MotivationMonday, I Know I Say This A Lot, but, #LikeWhatYouLike #BoldlyBeUniquelyYou!! We Never Truly Know What Someone Else is Battling on a Day to Day Basis. I Struggle w This, but I Try Very Hard to Keep in Mind That My Smile to Someone, My How Are You, My I Love Your Hair/Shirt/Etc., Very Well May Be the Only Sunshine They Get That Day.

I'm Not Saying it's About ME Giving Them MY Attention or Kind Word, No! I'm Saying it's SOMEONE/ANYONE Giving Them Positive Attention or a Kind Word!!!! One of the Young Ladies That Works at the Pharmacy Has Made a Point to Say Twice That She'd Like to Claim Me as Family Cause We Have the Same Last Name & I Say Things She Thinks, LoL!! My Response?! YES, GIRL!!!! We are Family!!!! I Mean...We are Southern, the Odds are There. But Its Just Wild to Me How God Chooses to Use Us as We Are! Your Quirks, Your Uniqueness, Your "flaws", Your Loud Mouth, It ALL Has Purpose!!

LET. HIM. USE. YOU!!!! It Isn't a Burden, It's a Privilege & a Answer to a Calling, When We Give Ourselves Over to the Lord to Be Used For His Kingdom. Let Him Use You Today. Let Him Use Your Special & Specific You-Ness!!
