HENSON

Hi lovelies,
Just sharing something cute that will hopefully make you smile: So, about a week ago I was blow drying my hair and I noticed a tiny black thing between my mirror and the wall. Now, if you know me, you know that I am meticulously clean and organized so it bothered me enough to put down my dryer so that I could retrieve a tissue in an attempt to remove it. As it turned out, it was/is a spider slightly larger than a pinhead and as I went to kill it, I felt so bad that I decided to scoop it into the tissue and take it outside – Well, as you can imagine, it had no intention of being encased, and so it scurried up what had to be the world’s tiniest spider web. Well, heck! I decided to ignore it with the intention that when it was big enough, I would put it outside. Well, a week later and he’s slightly larger; large enough for Rev to see it, who saw it and was getting ready to vacuum it up. Of course I stopped him and explained that I didn’t want to kill him and that I named him Henson. I further reiterated that Henson would depart as soon as he was big enough: Rev’s used to me and so he didn’t say anything else about it.

So, the funniest thing of it all is today when I went into the bathroom Rev was in there with a flashlight. When I asked him what he was doing he told me that he was looking for Henson and that he was worried about him because he wasn’t where he’d been hanging over the last week. LOL!

I’m not sure where Henson goes or even what he finds to eat in that tiny tiny mouth but I’m quite sure he’s okay, and will grace once again with his royal presence.

Until next time,
Let everything that has breath, praise the LORD (even Henson).
Love, Destiny

DEAR MOMENT

Handoflove
I love this simple image! Often times we get wrapped up in the pursuits and forget about the simple magic of just being alive. Life is more than a struggle, more than a mountain to climb, more than a vision to see and a dream to dream. Life is in the here and now and today I will spend my moments with the one’s I love; though some are missing.

Dear wonderful moment, I’m sorry I negate you at times! 

Today I will breath a sigh of relief for your goodness. Today I will just be present.  Today…
Love, Destiny

HE SAID SHE SAID

SBD-Hotair2

“I WILL HUFF AND I WILL PUFF AND I WILL BLOW THE HOUSE DOWN”  ©

I was raised with the ingraining into my soul that my word is my honor. In my life, a verbal (even tacit) agreement is as good as gold but unfortunately, we live in a world where a simple basic standard of morality is illusive at best.

So here’s my warning to you: As much as you trust the other party, as much as you believe in the good of man, GET IT IN WRITING!

You may have heard the saying, “If it’s not on paper, it doesn’t exist” and this is truer than ever in this cycle of life.

An agreement can be lightly defined as a, “Meeting of minds”,  but YOU must be mindful that a simple statement such as, “That wasn’t what was said” is all it takes to blow the house down.

I have seen the ugliest, and, I have seen the most beautiful side of man, and as much as I believe in the good, ‘good’ is only as good as the paper it’s documented on; and even then…!

Never worry about offending anyone when it comes to your livelihood. Be wise, be gentle, and be shrewd: If someone is offended about putting something down on paper, then you better run.

Until next time,
Let wisdom rule the day.
Love, DestinyB

TO CLOSE AN OPEN DOOR

sbdopen door

TO CLOSE AN OPEN DOOR © 2019 Destiny Buss
To close an open door – Doesn’t mean that you’re not right
To close an open door – Doesn’t mean that you want to fight
To close an open door – Is sometimes the only way to see
That what you wished and hoped for – May never really ever be

We all have so many things that we wish could be and should be but just aren’t and will never be.

Dear lovely,
Do what you need to do in order to keep your mind right and your family sound. You do not have to be in bondage to anyone else’s life or their confusion. Sometimes, living peaceably means closing the door…

“If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.” Romans 12:18

Until next time,
Live as peaceably as possible & with a clear conscience
Love, Destiny

HOW FAR WILL YOU GO

I just finished a song titled, “IF FAITH BROUGHT YOU THIS FAR”, which ended up leaving me in the most peaceful state. I’ve made many decisions in life; ones that I’m proud of, ones that I can’t believe I made, ones that I probably couldn’t make again knowing what I know now, and every one of them led me to where I am sitting today – Pretty amazing isn’t it? This thing that we call life isn’t formulated but rather created as we move forward.  My faith is what keeps me pressing forward; faith in GOD, Faith in the WORD of GOD, Faith in my gifts and talents, and Faith in people; this one always disappoints!

I know some of you may not be believers in CHRIST and I’m not here to sway you. I’m here to share my journey with those who take an interest, and to give the credit to the ONE who sets my feet on solid ground!

6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Heb 11:6

Faith is something that we all have been given, and the more of it we can receive, the bigger the reward. So, my dear lovelies, dream BIG, hope BIG, ask BIG, do BIG, and receive BIG! If you have a willing heart and active hands, then the only limit to what you can accomplish in this life, is time: Old man time is not on our side but we can make the most of the days that we have left by pressing forward.

Go far my friend and don’t settle for seconds.

Until next time,
How far will you go?
Love, Destiny 😘

LAID ON LAUGHED AT

Steppingstone350

This is my disclaimer before I write this post: For the record, I have never had any kind of sexual or compromising exchange for gain; that’s not what this is about

Dear Reader,
As you should know by now, I like to stay out of politics but there are times when your voice is the voice that needs to be heard and today, I say, if you’re not appalled at the treatment of Judge Kavanaugh and this lynching process of “Guilt before innocence”, there’s something wrong!

I am a business woman, I am a singer/songwriter, and I AM a survivor of abuse. Until this day, I have never mentioned it, much less, elaborate, seek fame, pity, vengeance, or, become part of any movement so as to benefit someone else’s agenda: No one cares about anyone else’s plight. Each one is busy seeking self-preservation at any cost! 

As a ‘victim’ and ‘survivor’ of mistreatment, I am livid that some of our leaders in government are so desperate to kill the American Independence that they have defecated on those who have truly experienced abuse – EVERYONE  SHOULD BE RAISING THEIR HANDS AND VOICES IN ABSOLUTE DEFIANCE & DISGUST! SHAME on anyone that allows themselves to be used and abused by this anti-American rhetoric!

UNALIENABLE RIGHTS: The U.S. Declaration of Independence states: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

I am a Christian Constitutionalist and I believe that everyone has the right to be free to choose how they want to live their life so long as it does not require a rewriting of our foundational principles.  We have a Constitution that is easily understood and guarantees every law abiding citizen the absolute, inviolable rights to their own pursuit of happiness.

PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE: The presumption of innocence is the principle that one is considered innocent unless proven guilty.
The total disregard of this process will destroy the foundation that your unshackled feet are standing on!

YOU CHOOSE WHAT DEFINES YOU
I am in no way condoning anyone violating another in any way, but what I am saying is that you become a victim over and over by allowing others to use your sufferings as a stepping stone for their ascension. Be a voice for victims, but remember, the heart in which you do something not only determines its effectiveness, but its justification.

A FINAL NOTE: I pray that when all this blows over, any false or misleading accusations from anyone (Senator or civilian), is handled in the criminal courts. Calling this lynching a travesty is far too glossy, and frankly, I do not want to invest anymore energy by elaborating on this evil.

Until next time,
Aren’t you grateful that no one’s probing in your closet?!

I’M STILL THE ONE

I wrote a song the other night titled, “I’M STILL THE ONE”.  It’s a beautiful song and one of the few written on piano. It’s about one mate watching the other drift away and knowing that there’s nothing they can do about it; what a lonely feeling and what a sad truth.

When the flesh is weak and the desire strong, it isn’t hard to make the wrong seem right, especially when one surrounds oneself with worldy people. Here’s a scripture that rings so true:

“Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.” 1 Cor 15:33

Be careful who you confide in because sometimes the very ones you’re trusting, are the ones who would kill to have what you have.

Until next time,
It’s only too late when it’s too late…
Love, DestinyB

THE RIGHT THING

 

The right thing is the hardest thing, sometimes. When I wrote this song I was going through a very painful situation; one that I thought I could not survive, but I did, and time’s passing made most of the memories of no effect, and the ones that still knock on my door, only hurt a little, and only when I let them.

Time is a beautiful healer but if whatever you’re going through seems too much to bear and too heavy a load, give it to JESUS and HE will trade you HIS beauty for your ashes, and your pain for HIS enduring strength.

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light
Matthew 11:28–30

Dear lovely, you’re not alone and I swear it will get easier.
Love DestinyB 😚

WHAT IS IT ABOUT DUSK?

The sun is preparing to slumber, horses are fed, the birds are getting ready to roost, & I’m missing my grandpa; he loved dusk, and if you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you know that I don’t.  I wrote a song titled, “I HATE THE ENDING”, and I do; the end of a book, the end of a movie, the end of the day, the end of a relationship, etc.,

I HATE THE ENDING ©2016

I HATE THE ENDING SO I’LL JUST SAY ‘SEE YOU LATER’
I HATE TO GET TO THE END SO I’LL JUST PRETEND
I HATE THE ENDING SO I’LL JUST SAY SEE YOU LATER THEN I’LL WALK AWAY

I HATE A LONG GOODBYE & THE LOOK I’M GONNA SEE IN YOUR EYE
YOU KNOW THAT I HAVE TO GO SO PLEASE DON’T CRY
I HATE THE ENDING SO I’LL JUST SAY SEE YOU LATER THEN I’LL WALK AWAY

Slipping away quietly is something that I’m pretty good at but truth is, endings are a necessary occurrence that without, we cannot progress. Seasons change, people change, circumstances change, and chapters must end so that new ones can begin.

Cherish the moments while you have them but don’t be afraid to close doors; some no longer serve your best interests. Selah!

Love, DestinyB
