Beautiful Eulogy – Selected Songs

Amazing message! Praise Yah – all to His Glory!

Enter Wonderland

Today is a little bit different, as I review one of my favorite albums.  To call this a review is generous, as that implies objectivity.  I have no intention of being objective.  My hope with this series is to introduce you to new music, and in response, I hope you will leave your suggestions for me to check out!


I’m not going to pretend to be well-versed in hip hop culture.  I’m not going to offer in-depth analysis or compare their work to others.  What I am going to tell you is that I have never heard an artist that so consistently produces songs that leave me breathless and in awe of God.  Sometimes, it seems they are writing these words straight out of my own life.

Keeping Records

Yeah, i’ve harped before about keeping good records and tracking expenditures and income, but when i hear the same people complain about having no money to pay bills, yet when asked if they keep records, they say ‘no,’ it causes me to wonder if they just want to complain, don’t have any idea of where their money is being spent, or perhaps don’t want to know.  But, like anything, if one doesn’t make improvements, then you’ll always be able to complain about something and that is stressful.

Here’s a short article i stumbled upon.  “Make a Personal Budget and Keep Track of Spending

It’s imperative and so easy to keep track of expenses.  Most can simply use a notebook and pencil.  Even easier is to have a calculator in the mix. (Coffee optional)  Write down the amount or ask for a receipt when you stop by the coffeeshop for a latte.  Picking up a soda from a vending machine – well, you’ll have to write it down.  Whatever you need to do, keep track of even the smallest expenditure and categorise it.  THEN, you can make decisions to change and improve your financial situations.  Reimburse your cash expenditures by writing a check to maintain your petty cash stash.  Sure, you can take cash out of your paycheck each month, but it makes it more real when you have to write a check.  Keep your petty cash in balance.

This can be applied to businesses as well, but managing one’s household and personal expenses is the first step.  Personal finance record keeping should begin in the preteen years – as soon as you earn or spend money.

Cheers!
