John Legend’s All of Me

I’ve loved this guy since he came out with Save Room. This is his latest work that he wrote for his wife. Originally, this song had no violin accompaniment, but with Ms. Stirling in the loop, this piece is now all the more delicious 😉

What would I do without your smart mouth
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
Got my head spinning, no kidding, I cant pin you down
What’s going on in that beautiful mind
I’m on your magical mystery ride
And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me, but I’ll be alright

[Bridge]
My head’s underwater
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

[Chorus]
Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

[Verse]
How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I’m around through every mood
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you

[Bridge]
My head’s underwater
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

[Chorus]
Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, all of you!

Cards on the table, we’re both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it’s hard

[Chorus]
Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you

I give you all of me
And you give me all, all of you, oh

My Priviledge, My Responsibility

I recently came from a conference and I was astounded by the number of individuals who said they read my work at MissTolentino.com.

You could just imagine the happiness and uneasiness I felt when they began discussing with me their thoughts on specific subjects I wrote.

As I began to ransack my brain of what I wrote on a particular topic, deep inside I was quivering and hoping that ‘Lord, I hope it glorifies you…’ and that I didn’t publish anything offensive or what not.

To be able to write is a privilege. I always tell myself that not everyone can express themselves through words. I am thankful for this gift, however, I am also held responsible for the words that come out of me.

But the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart,and those defile the man.

Matthew 15:18

As more and more people read my website, the more I am careful of the content I publish in it.

Also, with the audience that I am reaching, the age range vary from as young as 16 to 50 years of age, it’s those 16 and below that I am very careful of.

I have nieces, younger cousins and God-daughters who go through my wall, rummage through my photos and read my posts. If they see anything provocative, or behavior unbecoming of a mature servant of the Lord, I won’t have the opportunity to explain or correct whatever it is that I posted. My opportunity to reach them is forever lost.

With this website, I am twice as accountable for the things published here. This is why I always re-examine the content, to make sure that it passes His exact standards.

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

– Philippians 4:8

I put my name here as my testimony that a real person is behind this website; thinking, creating, writing.

It is indeed a privilege but I have come to fully understand that it is also a responsibility: to be mindful, to be encouraging and to be careful of the words that precede my heart.
