In May while shopping at the Walmart store in Sterling Heights, Macomb County Michigan, a rather strange situation happened to me. While waiting for my door-to-door transit to take me home, the driver ignored me flagging her down. So finally she stopped and the door opened; the lady said may I help you? I asked aren't you here as my return-home pickup? She answered no I'm not! I,m looking for a White Jewish Woman and you're a light-skin black woman with nice curly hair. Then she said what is your name? So I showed her my driver's license and she was a little surprised to say the least. The African American woman replied' you're kidding me? She was about 48yrs from Detroit Wayne County Michigan and said where are you from? Cincinnati and explained there are thousands of African Americans with Jewish last names. So she stated how did you get that Jewish name? I said what do you mean I was born into this name. Then I said you should get out more. So three-four months later I'm staring at the interesting item on my round coffee table (until a new is purchased) that in the 1950's was a table for setting for a beautiful fire place: with two wing-back chairs; and of course they were the petistaled with lions feet, also a very high back for the most comforting when reading Miss Rochelle Alers Novels. The item on the table in my living room is a plaque/statute; that somehow looks as though scrolls have been opened of the famous representation of ' The Lord's Supper'... But has a Holy Bible at the bottom , opened to the very Holy Scripture and Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, then gave to his disciples saying, " Take and eat; this is my body. (I promise not o preach) I've had this particular piece for along time; and just noticed that the whole Upper Room is there! Which brings me to the subject do we as people in general really know what families we really come from.. My Grandmother taught us about where she came from in Alabama. And when I was ten years old they took me on Summer Vacation to Birmingham so that my true heritage would be revealed to me. My Grandmother's two aunts were these Indian Women that married African American Men. My two cousins females were gorgeous and so were their children. My Uncle Thomas was so-very tall : dark but beautiful skin and he looked like a Watusi from the Continent of Africa. By the time I was thirty-six I learned about my Father's Family in Tennessee. What a Historical Heritage! Yea!
Mr. Perry, I want to thank you for sharing the wisdom of God. May God continue to protect you, guide you, and honor you with His Word, Wisdom, Strength, Grace, Mercy, and Love. May His Countenance shine upon you and God bless you. Amen.
Wow! Thanks for the messages. So uplifting and inspiring. Also, much of what you said I kin of know but not really acknowledging it. I guess because its just me in my own head, but when you say it and apply it to what you have already endured it is so much easier to see the reality of it all. Thanks you so much. I needed to talk to someone minus all the negative drama and energy. Peace, love and blessings!
Amen. That is so true. Words of wisdom.
Wow, I just can't get around posting. Kept thinking I'll come back when I have more time after I complete my homework! The message here is Heaven's response to me! What an awakening, thank you for sharing JAH's Truth! Now I Overstand the happenings in my life. But when does it end? Sometimes I feel like I'm in a box with no walls and no rope. Love Peace & Blessings Queen
I love listening to you speak your truth and I know those word come not only from the heart but from "Hashem" the mouth of God. I hope you will find the time to make more videos.
But Mr. Perry were do i start
I must say your story is very inspiring. I know I first hand what you're saying, and yes I am living proof the God is good and Jesus is alive and well. I would love for you to hear my story. DEFINITELY ONE OF A KIND. Thank you in advance. Signed: A Breath Of Fresh Air!!!
Mr. Perry, Thank you for willingly sharing your journey and lessons with the masses. I do believe our experiences at every level are designed to develop us, bless others and ultimately glorify God. Although there is nothing new under the sun, we are all in different places and stages in this life and often need to connect with others who can/will be transparent as confirmation or even new knowledge to aid one in taking that next step. To God be the glory for not just people like you, but men like you. Stay the course and I pray that when you are in your valley you too will have a place of inspiration to turn to like you have provided for so many. Be blessed!
You're so right! Thank you for your time & inspiration! Look forward to working with you in the future ☺
All of your messages are now my favorite inspirational and motivational thoughts. Thank You Again
I came to your site seeking help by requesting that you to send out an email to your newsletter recipients for the launching of a campaign for my book The Unfolding of a Rose--found an email address sent the letter to you, but it was returned. So . . . I searched your site for . . . more answers. It was then that I discovered the inspiration page. Something made me stop . . . watch . . . and listen. What did I hear . . . inspiration, sincerity and a deep sense of caring? It was all there . . . in your eyes, voice, timbrel of voice, mannerisms, etc . . . . I came away greatly moved by your words. I needed to hear them . . . right then . . . at that moment. The strangest thing is, I was listening to what I do, everyday as an inspirational writer, speaker and listener . . . except the positions were reversed. I took "to heart" all of what you said and am delighted I listened not only to you, but the mental voice that guides me every day of my life. I will leave now . . . because I believe you gave me what I was to receive by visiting you site. Some years ago, when I heard and read your story, I saw you as a person who had met and overcome adversity in the most challenging ways, not only with courage and strength, but also with humility. Today, you proved it!!!!! Thank you,
Mr. Tyler Perry, Your message on an appointed time is so true, i always thought it was the devil cursing me, but it could of been gods favor that he saw something i couldn't see, I thank you for this message it really touch me
