“Father in the name of Jesus, thank you for my last night, for my going out and coming in. Thank you, God, for waking me up, for touching me while I slumbered and slept. Thank you, Jesus, for clothing me when I am naked, for food on my table when I am hungry, and for keeping me in my right mind. Thank you for water when I am thirsty in Jesus name I pray, amen.” Brian S.
B. S. starts off his day with a prayer of thanksgiving, praising God for his daily provisions of rest, food, water, protection, and more. Born and raised in Northeast Washington, D.C., Brian is one of two children. An optimistic individual with visual impairment, Brian finds joy in the simplest things such as cooking, doing his laundry, singing, and playing the piano/keyboard.
Once engaged in conversation with Brian, one quickly grasps his love for singing and playing Gospel Music. He stated some of his favorites include Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers, Rev. Shirley Ceaser, the Clark Sisters, and the Brooklyn Allstars.
With a beautiful, modulated tone, he sang his favorite song, “No Cross, No Crown,” by the Brooklyn Allstars,
“If you can’t stand a little disappointment sometimes. If you can’t stand being talked about sometimes. If you think it should always be up and never down, I came to remind you…No cross, no crown…”
Brian expressed learning some new skills and traveling this year. He would like to learn how to make a favorite breakfast, including hash browns, bacon, eggs, and visit Manhattan to see a Gospel/Christian Musical.
His strong faith in God keeps him inspired daily. “I enjoy my time at Frontline. The staff makes sure I’m okay by assisting me with daily activities and providing balanced meals”~ B.S.
