Making a habit of judging my Sisters or referencing reality actors is not my steelo. In this instance however, I was rather stunned that such good could come from such an unlikely source.
So I’m at another marvelous client’s house, and we watch an episode of Sisterhood of Hip Hop. If you aren’t familiar, it’s an off brand (not produced by Mona) version of the reality series made popular by VH1; featuring female rappers from across the country. If you’ve been in Atlanta for any stretch of time, you’re probably familiar with the young group from which Diamond- our inspiration-hails. The name of the rap group was Crime Mob. With hits like “Knuck if You Buck” and “Rock Yo Hips”, the 6-some had quite the hot summer at one point. Diamond, a cast member on the aforementioned show gave us a quite a shock when, at 8:47pm her phone alarm screamed. You guessed it. It was her prayer alarm. The rapper has the alarm set for 3 times daily. No matter where she is or who she’s with, the prayer happens. Brilliant!
Often times in the hustle of the day, we neglect communicating with God. Diamond’s prayer alarm is an inviting way to ensure that we maintain the most important relationship that any of us have; the one we share with the Creator. I’ve taken note dear Diamond, and will follow suit immediately. Anyone around me when my Prayer alarm sounds off best be prepared. We could all use some reminder.
