Say he got to be too LETHAL

Two Songs For Whitney Below …. Good-bye Whitney Houston” from Renee Ashley Baker

February 12, 2012

                    

                 

                “Lift Up My Umbrella”  (Whitney’s   Song)

                                                      by

                                    Renee Ashley Baker

Copyright 2012 by Renee Ashley Baker  ALL  RIGHTS  RESERVED

Lift up my Umbrella

Shield me from the rain

Make my life get better

Heal me from the pain

Lift up my Umbrella

So  that I can fly

Hold me up   for–ever

Help me break the ties

(chorus)

Good and Godly Ground

Hear His Holy  Sounds

He’ll wear gold and white

He’ll be amplified

Good and Godly Gains

Hear his Holy Praise

His love takes me high

His love will inspire

(verse  2)

 Lift up my Umbrella

Protect me from the storm

Soul Train up to Heaven

Drive  me safe from harm

Lift up my Umbrella

Free me from this test

If I don’t survive this

Lay my soul to rest

chorus:

Good and Godly Ground

Hear His Holy Sounds

He’ll wear gold and white

He’ll be amplified

Good and Godly Gains

Hear His Holy Praise

His love takes me high

His love will inspire

(repeat chorus to THE END)

To KC: She was born on August 9, 1963….And I believe, I believe, that it was she–who helped me hold the Umbrella (on that day)….

                                      

 

                 

 

    “Will 

                You 

                            Be 

                                      My    

 

                                                Valentine”

   

              

                

 

      Whitney was the “Queen of the Video” (meaning–she had hit videos on MTV before  she’d even recorded her first album…)

                        by

          Renee Ashley Baker

I’m  not  line

It was 9 who held  the sign

Call her Nippy, Call her Whitney

I’m goin  claim her she was mine

(beat) Had a voice

That became the People’s Choice

Like a  crytal  bell that rings

I’m goin  tell you she could sing

(beat) Had her fame

Yes they glorified her name

What she touched it turned to gold

I’m goin  tell you so you know

(beat) Was a Queen

Now they have to let her be

She’s gone up to lead the chorus

Where they sing to Galilee

chorus:

Yes–Jesus loves me

Yes–Jesus loves me

Yes–Jesus loves me

For my Whitney told me so…..

THE END

[song sheet]

Jesus Loves Me ! 

Jesus loves me

This I know,

For the Bible tells me so;

Little ones to Him belong,

They are weak but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me!

Yes, Jesus loves me!

Yes, Jesus loves me!

The Bible tells me so.

PREVIEW: Valentine’s Day

February 7, 2008

                                        Lindt Valentine’s Day                 

                         The History of Valentine’s Day

        Valentine’s Day (also called Saint Valentine’s Day) is a holiday celebrated on February 14th.  It is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine’s cards or by gifting candy or flowers.

The Name: 

      The holiday is named after ‘two’ among numerous Early Christian figures named Valentine.  One being Saint Valentine of Terni.

The Romantic Association:

     The holiday became associated with ‘romantic love’ in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer (during the High Middle Ages) when the tradition of  ‘courtly love’  flourished.   (Note: About Chaucer’s  ‘Love Birds’  I  give you  “Parlement of Foules”  by Geoffrey Chaucer….

            “For this was seynt Volantynys Day…When every byrd comyth there to choose his mate….” 

           Did you know this poem was written by Chaucer to honor the first anniversary of the engagement of King Richard II of England to Anne of Bohemia…By the way, She 14 years of age and he just 13 years of age).

The Greetings:  “When You Care Enough To Send The Very Best”  — Hallmark Cards (Since 1910, founded in Missouri)

           In modern times the holiday has become most associated with the exchange of love notes in the form of ‘valentines’.   Such ‘valentines’ have always included the ‘heart shaped outline’  and the ‘figure of the winged cupid’.  Since the mid-nineteenth century mass produced ‘greeting cards’ surpassed handwritten notes.  The U.S. Greeting Card Association estimates that approximately one billion valentines are sent each year worldwide, making the day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year (behind Christmas).  The Association estimates that women purchase approximately 85 percent of all valentines….

The Gifts:
