Friday was absolutely amazing! I don’t even know how or where to begin. WOW.

Well I guess the easiest thing to do is to start at the beginning. How did my day really start off? hmmmm! I’m just going to give the short version of the story in the order it happened.

  1. Met up with some other Bajans here in the cold and we had an awesome video shoot (and impromptu photo shoot). We got some amazing footage (both Brook and myself). All that footage… I spent all of Saturday night into the wee hours of this morning chopping and cutting to find the stuff I would be using to edit for the video. And YES!! The video is done… for the most part…. just now for the voice over to be done. And the photos I took were beautiful. The model is both stunning and literally a natural. This is legit the 2nd time I’m shooting her ever and both times like a week apart. Both times it was so exciting to shoot her and furthermore… I think I am still excited now thinking about it.
  2. THIS WAS THE AMAZING PART. (Well the icing on the cake). And since I said cake… I’ll give it away… there will be wedding cake to come after today. Not for me per se but somebody’s going to get some wedding cake lol lol lol. So as fate would have it… we (the 5 of us) were shooting on this bridge connecting the two buildings in Eaton Centre when this guy came with some huge bags with letter balloons. So he proceeded to take out the letters. Did I say he was wearing a suit? Well he was and had a backpack on. So as he took them out… I realized the letters were spelling “MARRY ME?♥” We asked if he wanted help but he said he had it covered. Unfortunately the wind blowing through the tunnel had a different plan which made all the balloons blow on a side as opposed to stand up straight. So he eventually accepted our help. So we all came up with the plan for us to hold the balloons for him and we were there working through how it would happen. All this time we were watching the time because he had told us her friends were bringing her at 4:30pm. So we are doing all this under pressure. Why were we under pressure too? GOOD QUESTION! We hadn’t even known this man existed moments before but it was the idea this man was going to propose to her girlfriend yanked on all our heartstrings. I’m not going to lie! My heart was in a state of confusion… it forgot how to beat properly. I was to hold a balloon too but I decided I wanted to record this. This doesn’t happen too often if at all. I’ve never witnessed a proposal in my life furthermore a random stranger who we assisted with setting up for. Mind you… I only by chance had my Gopro on me as I almost left it home that day because I was going to be shooting with my Canon and said I wouldn’t need the gopro. But I grabbed it anyways because for some reason I had a feeling I needed to have it that day. Well things had gotten crazy. VERY CRAZY! As the time was counting down…. it got intense. By this time… many other persons were gathered to witness the event as well. I remember when he got the message and he shouted out “30 seconds!” That was the moment everything got REALLLLLL!

I remember when she walked in the tunnel and he stepped out and she stopped stunned…. I won’t forget what she said first… “IS THIS YOU?”

And he just walked to her…. you know what? I have it all on video…. just watch and see… MARRY ME?- Unsuspected Strangers


He asked the simple question… “Marry me?”

And she simply… nodded as she laughed in excitement.


A writing pal of mine challenged me to do a gospel shuffle. All I was to do was put my music on shuffle and play. Then skipping to the next song each times while recording the name of the songs in the order they came and use the songs’ titles ‘as is’ in a post. Here’s hers (I like hers a lot than my own, Hers is brilliant)

It is a blessing to be alive. Every morning when I awake, there’s one thing I know for sure; that is ‘My Redeemer Lives’. After all, He is the reason I have breath and life. He lives somewhere very special; He lives inside of me. He can live inside all of us. Just invite Him in and let Him shine, allowing Him to light our candles. Once lit, ‘Carry Your Candle’ and let the world see Him shine through you. Such light has the power to free those lost in the world and ‘Break Every Chain’ the devil uses to restrain us. That light is found ‘In Christ Alone’. Christ is standing at the door and He is knocking. “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” (Revelation 3:20 KJV) ‘Open The Eyes of My Heart, Lord’ and allow me to recognize You, and keep my eyes fixed on You as You work on me.

As long as we have life, we have hope of a brighter future ‘Because He Lives’. We can rest assured and trust that God desires the very best for all of us because He loves us like none other. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16 KJV) When I think about it, that’s a lot to ask of anyone; to give up your son? Well He gave His Son, willingly, just for us… ‘Just For Me’. He watched His world, being tarnished with sin, head towards destruction but His ‘Mercy Said No’. He could not just sit back and allow His children be lost forever.

“Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.” (Act 3:6,7 KJV) That is power. There’s power ‘In The Name of The Lord’! My God is able, powerful, mighty, and strong. When I am weak, He is strong. When I am strong, He is strong (He is the reason I am strong after all). ‘His Strength Is Perfect’! So no one can tell me differently. I’ve tried and proven my God over and over again. I’ll be stubborn because ‘I Got My Mind Made Up’!

I am happy that we have the chance to be ‘Born Again’. He loves us all that much! Jesus came here to be the sacrifice for us that we live in Him. He protects and keeps us, that’s why ‘I Am Under The Rock’. There’s no safer place for me than just right here. I’ll stay here and sing praises unto to Him; ‘Jesus Name So Sweet’.

He is the same God that He always was and He will always be. He has shown us great acts of love in the past and ‘He’ll Do It Again’. My God is wonderful. My God is amazing. ‘My God is Awesome’! ‘When I Call On Jesus’ He is always there. He never leaves.

Dear Heavenly Father, ‘I Give You My Heart’. Cleanse me and forgive me because I have sinned and I may not always show my fellow men the love and kindness You have shown me. Teach me how to love others and put them before myself. Empty me of self and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. I submit my life to You to use me to touch others and share Your ‘Indescribable’ love and Your light. Touch the hearts of those who I may come into contact with that they would be willing to receive a blessing from You. May my life be one that witnesses for You. Give me the strength to stand up for You. Bless us all and Thank You for all your blessings. All these things I ask, through Jesus Christ, Amen.

I'll sing for you.

I’ll sing for you.
