Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston was laid to

I'm so glad the home going service for Whitney Houston yesterday truly was just about her. Thank you so much to her mother, Cissy, who still selflessly shared Whitney Houston with the fans. It is good closure for fans like me that were still in a state of shock. When I heard the news that Whitney Houston had passed away on that very Saturday I didn't really believe it. Then I started to see it on trustworthy news websites. Today was her burial. Until this point, I couldn't bring myself to do a post about her on the blog. Quite honestly, this is the first passing of an Icon that feels like losing a family member for me. On quite a few occasions her music has hit home through my rough patches. I'm so glad she is a firm believer in the Lord and that always came across no matter what crazy things people want to be a hypocrite about. My prayers are with her mother and daughter. Bobbi-Kristina is just a year older than my sister (we're seven years apart). Imagine losing your mom at that age.. and to us a superstar, but Whitney Houston was also human. Matthew 24:42

whitney houston daughter bobbi

Everyone falls in love sometime
Sometimes it's wrong
And sometimes it's right
For every win
Someone must fail
But there comes a point when
When we exhale (yeah, yeah, say)

Shoop, Shoop, Shoop
Shoo Be Doop Shoop Shoop (yeah)
Shoo Be Doop Shoop Shoop
(All you got to say is shoo be doop)
Shoo Be Doop Shoop Shoop
Shoo Be Doop Shoop Shoop (Shoo be doop)
Shoo Be Doop Shoop Shoop
Shoo Be Doop Shoop Shoop
Shoo Be Doo

Sometimes you'll laugh
Sometimes you'll cry
Life never tells us
The when's or why's
When you've got friends to wish you well
You'll find a point when
You will exhale (yeah, yeah, say)


Hearts are often broken
When there are words unspoken
In your soul there's
Answers to your prayers
If you're searching for
A place you know
A familiar face
Somewhere to go
You should look inside yourself
You're halfway there

[Repeat Verse 2]
