In traveling around, all over the country, for Many Years. I have continued to listen to Christian Music and after countless hours of evaluation, I have come up with my Super 16 Christian Music Songs and Videos. There are some other great one that I will have in my Second Super 16.
First of all, I do have an illustrious Musical Background and I have a Great Appreciation for Great Music, especially Great Music with A Great Message.
I was Vice President of my Brownwood A’Cappella Choir and a member of a Christian Quartet in that Choir that perfomed regularly in Church and Church Groups. Then I was Vice President of The Baylor Freshman A’Cappella Choir as a Freshman in that Freshman A’Cappella Choir and again as a Senior for the Baylor A’Cappella Choir that performed in Carnegie Hall in New York City. In the Baylor A’Cappella Choir, I was also in a Trio that performed regularly in Churches and Church Fund Raising Groups for the New York Carnegie Hall Trip.
There have been times when listening to one of these Christian Artists, I got so Spiritually Emotional, I had to pull over to the side of the road to regain my Emotions. One time, on my way to Florida, I was passing through Mobile, Alabama and one of these Christian Artists came on the Radio and I had to pull over at a gas station to regain my composure. More than once, I have Teared-Up while listening to Darlene Zschech (In Photo) and her Beautiful and Very Spiritual Song, “Worthy Is The Lamb.”

All of my Life, I have Believed in “Expect A Miracle” and I have received many Miracles. In 2003, I started working on my First All-American Bowl Game Classic. I was going to take on the project whether I had sponsors or not, but then I got sick. I had a Collapsed Lung and after two major Lung Surgeries to overcome, I found myself on the Critical Intensive Care Ward at New Orleans University Hospital.
On April 15, 2003, which was my 31st Wedding Anniversary, I stayed on that Critical Intensive Care Ward for six days. While I was on that Ward, at University Hospital in New Orleans, six of eight patients died on my ward. I actually saw one of the patients die on the Ward. A lot of people were praying for me to make it and although I had some critical moments, I knew that I had some major things to do for these kids before I was going to be called up and I Expected A Miracle.
There was a Prayer Group of ladies in Plaquemine, Louisiana, the home of my Late Mother-in-Law, Rosalie Pasqua, and they held a Prayer Vigil every day and night for A Miracle for me and those prayers definitely helped save my life.
One night, while I was still on the Critical Intensive Care Ward, I was burning-up, and I found out later that my temperature was around 105 when another Miracle happened again again and Prayers were answered when a young Polynesian Nurse came into my room around 3:00 A.M. and cooled me down with ice and cold water towels. This nurse saved my life.
On May 18, 2003, about a month after my last Lung Operation, I experienced a lot of pain in my back where my Lung Surgery left a 17-inch incision that was still trying to heal. Some days, it hurt so bad, I could not get up out of bed, so my wife, Ginger, and I decided that it was time to go back to New Orleans to see my Doctor.
After waiting for about four hours in the Emergency Room, a lady patient of Polynesian Descent came out of a Doctor’s office and walked right past Ginger and me. “I don’t know why I came here to the Doctor’s office today, because the Doctor didn’t help me one single bit,” said the Polynesian Lady.
“You are here today for a reason,” I said to the Polynesian Lady as she walked out of the waiting room and out of the hospital. After about a minute, I felt a light tap on my shoulder and heard someone softly say, “She’s here for you!”
After it registered to me that this was a “Devine-Intervention” that was sent from Heaven, I jumped up and although I was still hurting, I managed to chase the Polynesian Lady down the street until I caught-up with her.
As these two strangers met down the street, we held hands and we said a Prayer together. The lady then pulled out a Father Francis Xavier Seelos Prayer for a Miracle Card and gave it to me. I have said this Father Seelos Prayer for a Miracle almost every single day until the present. I continue to Expect A Miracle and I have been Blessed By The Holy Spirit many times with Miracles in putting together my All-American Bowl Game Classic Events, to help kids without the aid of Sponsors.
