    SOFT, EFFEMINATE MANHOOD DANGER SIGNS:

    *When a brother spends more time on his braids than
    his brain!

    *When a brother doesn't believe in hard work to get
    ahead, but insists that his 'woman' bust rocks and
    give him her paycheck.

    *When a brother knows more about the soaps than his
    woman, or the remote than his children.

    *When a brother puts not one, but TWO rings in his
    ears!

    *When a brother does NOT want to move out from mommy
    and daddy to get a place of his own, and a job.

    *When a brother is quick to go into a woman's purse
    and out the door to pursue his pleasure for the night.

    *When a brother doesn't have the GUTS to propose
    marriage ahead of 'propositioning' a woman he barely
    knows.

    *When a brother spends more time on HIS looks than
    reading books.

    *When a brother DEMANDS that his mother, sister, or
    woman 'cater' to his--and his friends--needs, rather
    than him getting NEW friends that believe in sweat and
    work.

    *When a brother doesn't like the fact that one must
    sweat TO work!

    *When a sister allows this 'shell of a man' to spend
    more time on his nails than her happiness.

    *When a brother can cry at the drop of a hat, instead
    of learning the lessons only failure can teach, and
    only success and hard work can instill.

    *When HIS wardrobe has more 'frillies' in it that the
    woman he is seeing.

    *When a brother uses more emotion and less logic.

    This, in general, is what I am referring to!

    Brothers, to be a MAN--a MAN after our fathers, grandfathers, and greatgrandfathers, means that WE MUST endure HARDNESS, not EASE! There ARE times to KICK BACK, but NOT all the time!

    Stop and Think! Proverbs 31--the Constitution of Womanhood in the Bible, was written by a King, based upon lessons he had learned from his UPRIGHT Mama! TOO MANY of our modern sisters and brothers have forgotten what it takes to be a positive influence on their OWN children. One can't 'go out' and help anyone else without taking care of home FIRST!

    I know (and you do too) of brothers who think its OK to be pierced, perfumed, and pampered...without being a provider, prophet, priest and King of one's own destiny through Christ. The Ship of Zion may be God-propelled, but EVERYONE on its decks has a job to do...and to get done...before it gets to its final port.

    Everyone knows about Thomas Edison, and the number of failures he had in inventin the light bulb. Goodyear developed the winning process of treating rubber for tires AFTER a sting of defeat, imprisonment, and financial reversal. Churchill did not become the Lion of England until later in life. His father thought he was nothing; his government thought he was nothing; his countrymen thought he was nothing...until the shooting started and 'Old Winnie' made his way to the front of the line and told Hitler and his crew: "WE won't surrender!"

    Great historical story about Edison, and Dr. George Washington Carver. Edison had heard about Carver's genius in the lab, and offered him a HUGE sum of money to come work WITH him.

    Carver turned him DOWN!

    In his letter, Carver told Edison: "Tuskegee is NOT through with me yet!" In other words, Carver had a firm sense of destiny and himself. Money was NOT his god.

    Revising One For Later This Year

    Have one already written, but was rejected by several publishers. So, I'll probably start the revising labors in the fall and re-shop it in the winter.

    Self-publishing works for some, but I'm still of the Old School. The writer does the work and the publisher is responsible for moving it and paying the writer. Till that break comes, column writing is far more satisfying. It gets the help right to where people need it now. Plus, with great sites like this one, more and more people will come to 'check us out'.

    I'm content with where the Lord has placed me now. He opens the doors. I just walk in where I'm supposed to go. Thanks for the encouragement Joyce and Rich!
