As I sit here writing this note to you, my wonderful husband Rev. Glen is napping on the couch. He's adorable. He's also my best friend, teacher, and Mighty Companion! Being in a releationship is the greatest teacher of all. But it doesn't have to be only a life partner relationship, I have discovered that I am in an intimate relationship with everyone around me. At work, at school, at play, in the subway, on the street, while driving. All of these situations give me the opprtunity to practice forgiveness...
( "giving way for a new thought"-Rev.Shawn Moninger ).
In this way I learn to Be The Love that I want to see in the world.
I have been working with this idea of "Being The Love" and decided to re-write my live show The Gospel Hour to reflect this theme. We will be featuring new songs,new stories, and showcasing my fabulous band The Yolandaleers. We will open this new live version of the show on March 16, 6:30 pm at The Duplex, 61 Christopher Street, NYC www.theduplex.com, (212) 255-5438 -1/2 price TKTS via Goldstar at my website www.yolanda.net
In other FAB news... my song HOME from my cd Country Gospel Kirtan was voted the #1 song of 2013 by .net The International GLBT Music Charts. Thank you Thank you for voting. This was a significant year for the OutVoice charts as I and another "out" spiritual Gay musician SHAWN THOMAS placed highly on the Top Ten Songs of 2013. Shawn actually had 2 spiritual songs on the charts. This indicated to me that a spiritual re-awakening is happening in the LGBT community. You can see the current charts and vote at www.outvoice.net
I truly appreciate all of your support and will be praying for you. If you'd like to talk to me about any personal prayer request or something that's happening in your life..please email me firstname.lastname@example.org , I am also available for phone consultation and spiritual counseling.
Blessings to you and your family,
