Modern love, modern families

Jerry Mahoney has been documenting the ups and downs of gay parenthood for years at his blog, Mommy Man (which also inspired a book by the same name). Last month he added another accolade to an already impressive list when his essay “Mom/Not Mom/Aunt” was featured on the New York Times’ Modern Love podcast, narrated by none other than Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson:

While you’re at it, be sure to read Jerry’s recent — powerful — post, “Why I Put My Family on Display.”

God had another assignment for Prince far greater than we can imagine! His many talents contributed the musical world will play on forever.

Mayor Betsy Hodges

For the residents of Minneapolis, the loss of Prince is too large to describe.  His music brought untold joy to people all over the world. But in Minneapolis, it is different. It is harder here. Prince was a child of our city and his love of his hometown permeated many of his songs. Our pride in his accomplishments permeates our love of Minneapolis.

From his youth in the Minneapolis Public Schools, to his graduation from Central High School, to his breakthrough performance at the Capri on Broadway Avenue, to his world wide success, he was one of us. He gave us more opportunities to hear his music than anyone else. What a blessing. Only now may we realize how lucky we were.

His first album, For You (1978), showed his skill as a multi-instrumentalist, but we had no idea then that he would be such an incredibly prolific composer, usually…

Can you feel the love tonight ?

Beautiful! God loves everyone Unconditionally!

Ramblin' Rose

Uncannily, as I was reflecting on the Last Supper of our Lord, I heard a station playing “Can you feel the love tonight” (From the Lion King.)  Listening to the words, I thought of the love that must have been present on Jesus’ final night on earth; that (Maundy Thursday) night when he commanded his apostles to love and instituted the sacrament of Love.

The song echoes in the background – Can you feel the love tonight? How its laid to rest. It seems so appropriate .. a love hymn of worship.

Jesus knew his life and mission will soon end. He loves his friends so dearly but the hour has come to return to His Father.  It is time to say goodbye.

It is the most momentous farewell in the history of man. God became man and dwelt among us.  And now he is…

You have to care less.

So true!

Pallak Singh

  1. In life, as i grew, I have learned this thing that people will judge you no matter how great you are. They will always find ways to put you down, make you feel horrible about yourself. And by people i don’t mean “strangers” or your “enemies” ; they can be anyone including your friends or your “loved ones”. In life people will judge you if you do nothing and they will judge you if you try to do something. I remember how people judge me if i post any of my pictures. They leave their comments saying how “ugly” i looked or how “stupid” i am. They make fun of me.( I’m just talking about the negative comments here. No offense to anyone) Who knows, they might even judge me for writing this blog. So basically in life no matter how great you are, you will always be judged by…

Love yourself

So true! How can we love another if we don’t know how to love ourselves.

Pallak Singh

Loving yourself is one of the most important thing in life. I’ve come across alot of people who are self-concious and dependent. To hide their flaws, they chose to be with other people thinking that the person loves them. Well guess what? No one will love you if you don’t love yourself. And same goes for you too. How can you love someone if you can’t even love yourself? You don’t always need a second person to tell you that you’re beautiful. You got to believe that cause you really are beautiful. And by loving i don’t mean being self obessed or selfish. What i am trying to say is that never underestimate yourself. Be confident and be beautiful. And be your own best-friend. Do love people and let them love you. But don’t let anyone hurt you.
