As I sat in my office last week worrying about my job and the current job market, I received a package in the mail. I was expecting a CD that I had ordered from eBay, but to my surprise, my online friend, Bro. Leonard Fletcher, had sent me a CD for my collection. He didn’t send it for review, so I will honor that request, but I wanted to let you know what a blessing this CD was to me.
Bro. Fletcher wrote the Inspirations hit song, “I’m Not Ashamed”, as well as eight of the ten songs on the CD that he sent to me (songs in bold by Brother Leonard Fletcher):
- Somewhere The Birds Are Singing
- The Old Fashioned Way
- He Sends What I Need
- Another One Got In
- My Familiar Valley
- God’s Old Chariot
- He Can’t Stand The Sight Of Blood
- Lord You’re The Best Thing
- I Can’t Go To Hell
- Your Goodness To Me
The Fletcher Family doesn’t have a website, but they will be appearing in Burnsville, NC at 6 PM on July 15 at Pleasant Valley Baptist Church. Contact me if you are going to be in the area and I’ll give you directions.
Bro. Leonard, you’ll never know what this CD meant to me. During one of my lowest points, you’re songs uplifted me. I’m glad that “He Sends What I Need” and “Your Goodness To Me” will not be soon forgotten. I hope this post doesn’t embarrass you in anyway, but I wanted you and all my readers to know about the unexpected blessing that you were to me last week. I’m planning on being in the service with you at Bro. Shelton’s church on July 15. I can’t wait to meet you in person!
