 God is Good- And how Good he is Amen.
 I'm speakin bout my wardrobe today-
Mainly one outfit that has been in my closet for years. I wore this outfit as a lil' girl a few times, but as I got older I hung this outfit back in my closet, and closed the door, opened it up, and pulled that outfit off the banger- Put it On-and Wow!!! Fits so right, feels so good-Sorry all-but this is one outfit that is not sold in stores. This outfit is Jesus.
 See coming up in the projects, being middle class hand me downs- I was quiet, shy, smart, honor roll student, child of God deeply blessed & rooted in my music. Music being one of the many gifts God has give me. I use to be a part of an organization called the Boston All Star Talent Show Network.
 I started out as a volunteer/performer, selling tickets- competing- Business to business donations-artist liason- public relations-security, and representative. God made all this possible, but I never even thanked Him. Never even put Him on.
 I was at the top of my game, Then I woke up. I woke up to alchol, drugs, hopping in strangers cars( no not about sex, but just to get rides up the block and that could have gotten me killed.) I was stealing and robbing. I had 3 children, dealing with different relationships. I had hung that outfit called Jesus back into the closet and things got real ugly, Quick!!! All the shelters, the names I was being called, the games I played. Sleeping in abandoned cars, abandoned buildings, All of it ugly. Why am I walking around here in ugly when all I had to do was go to my closet, open that door, and put on Jesus instead I ended up her in South Bay Jail. Even here there's this closetand today I opened that door, pulled that outfit off the hanger- Put on God and wow!!!! I looked in the mirror from every angle, and what an amazing sight.
 I now look Good with God draped over me, I'm still goin through my trials and tribulationsbut my struggles are now managable.
 Today I desire to wear God, I love God, I worship God, I want to walk the path He has pathed for me. So I'm askin you today,
 Does God Look Good On Me?
