True Inspiration and a Heartfelt Performance


I’ve watched ‘Dancing with the Stars’ since the first season; however, I’ve never been touched by a dance as much as the one below which was during the theme week of ‘My Most Memorable Year’ . By itself, it may just seem like a nicely executed dance, but, put it together with the back-story of the remarkable J.R. Martinez and it becomes a true inspiration for those who feel as if there is no hope after going through a traumatic and/or life-altering experience.

Love, Patience and Time


written by: Eric Benet

I believe in the power inside of my heart
God is the source from whom we’re never apart
No challenge too great and no cause is too small
This infinite love is inside of us all

My buddy Greg, he lost his leg serving time in the desert
He’d sit and drink and think of things he couldn’t do no more
Took a while for Greg to smile, but I heard he’s doing better
He just won a marathon, second year in a row

Oh, there’s a storm that you’re gon’ have to ride in your life
Hope is the beacon that saves when you’re lost in your life
Just hold on and you’ll go with the tide

With love, patience and time
And it won’t take long and it’s gonna be alright
Love, patience and time
That power is strong in your heart and mind

I knew a girl, a pretty girl, but her daddy never loved her
She wondered why every guy left her out in the cold
What daddy did she must forgive before her heart grows colder
And all the love she’s dreaming of, maybe then she will know

Yeah, we’ve got stories and people to blame for our lives
No, don’t get lost in that circle
Don’t you know that’s a lie?
The only way is to leave the past behind

With love, patience and time
And it won’t take long and it’s gonna be alright
Love, patience and time
That power is strong in your heart and mind

Love, patience and time
And it won’t be long till it’s gonna be alright
Love, patience and time
That power is strong in your heart and mind

There’s so much more inside you and me
That the world needs to still believe
Nothing’s too great for this God and me
Keep in mind love and life
Everything is gonna be alright

Grab a gun everyone, said the leader of many
We’ve got to kill to change the will of the other side
Some people swear that blood and fear
Is gonna bring the world together
I believe that all we need is love, patience and time

Love, patience and time
And it won’t take long and it’s gonna be alright
Love, patience and time
That power is strong in your heart and mind

Love, patience and time
And it won’t be long till it’s gonna be alright
Love, patience and time
That power is strong in your heart and mind

Love, patience and time
Love, patience and time
