Sidney Poitier (February 20th 1927 – January 6th 2022)

Christ said, “Consider the lilies of the field,
they toil not, they spin not
Yet Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed as one of these”
How fitting that this great actor and man of class
Won an Oscar for a film titled Lilies of The Field.

Guess who’s coming to dinner?
A man who is a scholar and gentleman

A man of considerable talent
A man of great charm and personality
A man who made a difference in the world
A life well lived
And now all we can say is
To Sir with love.

    R.I.P to the actor. I don’t know him, but I have those films you mention in my “watch list” but I never get no it. My nose is always stuck between the books haha.

    Guess who’s coming to the
    wedding feast of the Lamb?
    I do trust that it’s Sidney Poitier
    as he portrayed the kind of love
    that comes from the great I Am ♾️
