Forks Over Knives

I grew up on a relatively safe street in a suburb south of Manila. All the parents knew each other and all adopted an open door policy for the kids. It wasn’t strange to spend hours on end in a neighbor’s house and just go back in time for lunch or dinner.  Afternoon snacks were also frequently had at playmates’ houses, their mothers preparing them in time when we’ve had enough of hopscotch or…

A lot of us grew up with the idea of a God that roared from the heavens. That silently judged us and kept points for our “goodness”. But see here, God loves us so much that He wants to give us GREAT joy. The world tells us joy can be found in career, in relationships, in material possessions, in position. The only way you will ever be truly happy - the kind of happy that sinks in your bones, that doesn’t change with your circumstance and just overflows all around you - is if you were in the center of His will. Praying we all find ourselves there with Him today. ❤️

Breakfast! While I’m convinced that whole food plant based (veganism) eating is the wiser way to go, I didn’t want to shock myself by completely saying goodbye to some of my favorite things. So this lettuce, tomato and carrot combo has some feta cubes. Dressing is Bragg’s Braggberry organic dressing. Yay! #tra #nuskin #therightapproach #happypatti

Michael Jackson - Beat It (Demo)

lacienegasmiled:

Demo of Beat It composed using only Michael Jackson’s voice

As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.

One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”

Reasons why I laugh when people say he wasn’t a real musician.

The apostle Paul is able to write that to encourage the Philippians because he knew the right source of everything - his strength, his provision, his gifts, abilities - which is why in the next verse he says “I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who gives me strength.” Know that wherever The Lord leads you, His grace will never fail you. Be encouraged that as long as you’re plugged into Him, you will never run out.
