Posted on 08/16/2012 6:00:35 PM PDT by beachn4fun

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale
of our military and our allied military
and the family members of the above.
Honoring those who have served before.

MUSIC NIGHT
for the Saturday music thread
Fabulous FRiday presents
Gladys Knight

Gladys Marie Knight
Born May 28, 1944
In Atlanta, Georgia.

She first achieved minor fame
by winning Ted Mack's Original Amateur Hour TV show contest
at the age of 7 in 1952.
The following year, she, her brother Merald, sister Brenda, and cousins William and Elenor Guest formed a musical group called The Pips.

Gladys Knight & the Pips joined the Motown roster in 1966,
and, although regarded as a second-string act,
scored several hit singles.

Success

Knight and the Pips continued to have hits until the late 1970s,
when they were forced to record separately due to legal issues.

Knight's first solo LP recordings--Miss Gladys Knight (1978) on Buddah
and Gladys Knight (1979) on Columbia Records.

TRIVIA:

In their early Motown career
Gladys Knight and the Pips toured as the opening act
for Diana Ross and The Supremes.
Gladys Knight stated in her memoirs that Ross
kicked her off the tour because the audience's reception
to Knight's soulful performance overshadowed her.
Berry Gordy later told Gladys
that she was giving his act a hard time.

The name Pips came from a cousin, James "Pip" Woods.

Knight has been married four times and given birth to three children.

In 1987, Knight decided to pursue a solo career, and she and the Pips recorded their final LP together, All Our Love (1987)

In October 2009, Gladys started her farewell tour of the United Kingdom
which featured Tito Jackson as her supporting act
and special appearances by Dionne Warwick.

They Are Watching

August 17, 2012

A professional football player’s team was having a terrible season, losing week after week. A reporter asked him how he stayed motivated to play hard and give his best even though his team lost almost every game. He responded, “My dad is watching that game. My mom is watching that game. You better believe I’m going to do my best!” He recognized that there was more at stake than just winning or losing. People were watching, and that reality always drove him to do his best.

Jesus reminded us of this reality in the early portions of His Sermon on the Mount. We should live our lives with a recognition that what we do is observed by those around us—and this visible life makes a statement about our God. He said, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matt. 5:16). How does the light of our lives shine? By bringing the heart and character of Christ into the situations that engage us every day. By showing compassion as He did for the marginalized or forgotten. By displaying concern for the Father’s name and reputation.

People are watching us. The question is, What do they see?

Show me the way, Lord, let my light shine
As an example of good to mankind.
Help them to see the patterns of Thee,
Shining in beauty, lived out in me. —Neuer
Let your light shine—whether you’re a candle in a corner or a lighthouse on a hill.

Read: Matthew 5:13-16

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. —Matthew 5:16
Bible in a Year:
Isaiah 64-66

Hi Connie.

As you can see I haven’t posted and ran. LOL

It’s like, “Help! I’m stuck in the Canteen and I can’t get out.”

LOL

Hope you are well.
