The Festival Of Praise 2016 “The Game Of Life” was nothing short of phenomenal. Creator and Executive Producer Fred Hammond and his brother Ray Hammond have out done themselves with this one.

This song is one of my favorites by the 70’s group “The Doobie Brothers” when I initially heard it what caught my attention was the energy behind the track the rhythm.

I remember the first time I heard this song and the thoughts that came to mind, the funny thing is those same thoughts are still true today.
As I listen to this song again after not hearing it for many years I’m so reminded of the impact it had on me the initial time I heard it. The lyrical content of this song for me puts human connection in proper perspective…….
This has been my theme for many years and will continue to be. As I listen to the catchy rhymes, funky beat and the simple message that this song carries I can’t help but to feel inspired
Though the message in this song is one that can be interpreted in many ways I tend to grasp a message of motivation and realization. Have you ever been sitting very still in deep thought? If you haven’t then you should do it every now and then, it will change your life……..
