While in Washington D.C. on a business trip, I saw this and it was just something that moved me. As I was siting in the park waiting for my hotel shuttle, I overheard a little boy wanting to play catch with his dad. I hear the dad agree and soon afterwards I hear the sound of a football traveling in the air. I look up and my jaw dropped when I saw the”dad” who was throwing the ball. It was an old man around his late 50’s and he was wearing suit. Now mind you, this wasn’t a cheap suit you can get for for $100.00. This was a high quality suit. It warmed my heart to see a dad take time out of his busy schedule to put a smile on his sons face. I guarantee that it will be dry-cleaned by the end of the week. What an example of taking time for the important things in life.
I love Hip-Hop. Let me rephrase that…I LOVE MUSIC. Born in New York, raised on Guam, and living at one time or another in every region of our country, my taste in music is as wide as the Grand Canyon.
As a Christian who loves music (especially Hip Hop) it’s increasingly getting hard to find music that uplifts me spiritually. Sure, you have music like those found on K-LOVE but sometimes you just want to get hyped up and enjoy the bass banging from the speakers in your car. Today, I found such a rapper that not only connected me with me college years but has now connected with me on a Christian level.
I first came across MC JIN when he would do those freestyle battles on BET back in the day. He would then play a role in one of my favorite move franchises, The Fast and the Furious. He played Jimmy in 2 Fast 2 Furious. Today, MC Jin is a professed Christian. He still sounds the same as if he was still doing battles on BET but the message has changed. I thank God for being able to listen to something like this in my car!
Here is a sample on MC JIN with he was on a morning talk show.

Found this while eating at a restaurant called ARASHI on the beautiful island of Guam. It was pinned on a board with other drawings and calling cards. It is entitled “deaf sign language devotional” and has an illustration on how to say thank you using sign language. It also has the beginning of 1 Thessalonians 5:16 which reads…
Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:18 NLT)
This was the perfect verse for the type of day I was having. Thank you lord for that!
I love seeing the word of God in plain view of the world. If you see some out there be sure to share with us for the world to see Gods Grace.
