I am John Gary Dewberry Jr., there is my son John Gary Dewberry III.

My earthly Father John Gary Dewberry Sr. would turn 100 years old today May 12th 2014, he was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina Tuesday May 12th 1914.

My father died January 5th 1980 and 34 years later here I am, still standing.

Papa Son - Still Standing, not Standing Still.
Papa Son – Still Standing, not Standing Still.

I am not everything I could be but I am better than I was yesterday and walking with the Lord, promises a better tomorrow.

In 1914; as is still the case when a Black boy, or Negro child is born, skin color is an issue of life and death. I am blessed with an imagination and an anticipation of a better life, a life that my Daddy worked and fought and YES prayed for.

What wishes does a father have for a son? I’m saying that the Son trust in the Lord, that he’s “In the Book” and a viable, reliable adult Baptized member of a good bible based Church is a good foundation.

God Bless the Child who has his own, John G. Dewberry Sr. had his own, just to be able to live through the times of early 1900’s , Purple Heart Veteran of World War II, the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.

My Daddy told me many things and taught me harsh realities and the subtleties of how to live and stay alive in America.

These are a few of the things and phrases you had to know:

Geechi, McGillicutti, Cutty, Roscoe and I had to know different sayings  like no gooood!, box you up, straight shooter, 6-shooter and how to skip a rock, how to throw a rock and how to tap dance a little bit.

Maybe the most important thing to know was how to hang out with your Dad wherever he would take you. There are plenty more but these stick out on today, and the motions and emotions of this day are what I am catching in this forum.

My Intention is to chronicle this day and date in forever history. Forever; and that’s a long time, will the 100 year date of my Dad’s birth date stand out in Cyberspace.

1914 was a significant year in many ways not the least being the National designation of Mother’s Day and the first World War.

2014 has it’s significance also but on this day I have a praise offering and one that I particularly take great care to wave a savory smoke.

Let me get down right smokey Father, father check my Exodus:

(Exodus chapter 16 verse 16 in particular) as I have visited the elevators.

I am moving from milk unto living waters of praise JESUS, JESUS, JESUS Thank you Lord for your Grace and Mercy, thank you Lord for leaving us the Comforter, (AMEN) the Holy Spirit. Thank you for the hunger to find pleasure in your sight of me oh Lord! John Gary Dewberry Jr. standing in the need right now, Hallelujah!

Thank you Lord for the Manna now turned into the bread of (AMEN!) your Son JESUS Christ. The bread is the word, the living word is the Holy bible, eating the bread is to study the word while praying to You Father, father for my knowledge of your approval.

Oh Lord, The Meat, Mighty Father, father the Meat that is the bread made sacrifice by the Blood which touch the ground to wash away the Sins of this like filthy rag, oh yes it’s me Lord. The Meat is the flesh of the Son of God who did walk on this earth as a human and gave his life for he that believes on him; JESUS Christ, will have life eternal and everlasting.

Thank you Father, father my gift is this knowledge, that my gift is giving back the love you have so given me.

This gift given me will keep giving as I see The Centenarian, Centurion and the celebration of the Century of the name


as a means for an addendum to be updated throughout this year.

Truly the Word Pressed.

Happy Birthday to my Dad

    The following is written by JohnGary Mycyber talk. May 12th 2015

    Home room 101 would take me back to junior High school but on today 2015, May 12th takes me all the way back to the day my Father was born in South Carolina in 1914.

    Today I am the bridge over troubled water, today I praise the Lord, my living water of praise is to the Lord. Amen ! thank you for JESUS, thank you for the Holy Ghost on today when I speak for the entire family.

    Who…? me that’s who! John Gary Dewberry Junior. Yes it is me that stirs the drink, yes it’s me who shakes the tree, yes it’s my responsibility to open the door of earthly praise to everyone for everyone.

    WHO…? the prodigal son. Yes that’s me, yes I can and always could, sometimes in silence now openly and Yes JESUS loves me, and yes I go to praise the Lord Hallelujah!. Who will come after me…

    THE Lord has called! but after me, and make no mistake, I am before any and everyone, who say so ! ,well its “in the book”. This open prayer and open praise was written before time even before 1914.

    Yes I seek the approval of GOD to do what it is I am to do, on this day and in this way. I am sure in my Spirit that many have doubted John G.Dewberry only to be wrong in the end, for the LORD loved my father so much that he gave his begotten Angel ,My Mother Irene, unto him to hold and to cherish and to bring forth this fruit on this day.

    NO I am not alone, but alone I can stand, with the Lord on my side. What is loose on earth, will now be loose in Heaven, if there ever was a play time it is now over. WHO say so… I stand by the WORD, my job on this task is done, but I go on to other tasks of the calling on my life.

    Oh family you have been charged, not to perform to my specifications or as some may get it wrong, because Dew said so or as any one who may challenge to say… Who does he think he is. Oh I know who I am and who’s I am, always have.

    This is the first year without Mother and Father on this earth. Let Love be your guide and continue or become a pillar in a good Bible based Church. Time’s up and don’t test – you wouldn’t like the anger.

    Happy Birthday to my Father John G. Dewberry Senior now in paradise with your wife I thank God for You.
    Whoever you are it is my hope you find the peace that surpasses all understanding, Thank you,

    Today the Word is truly in press for whosoever is called to read and understand.

    Ouwee won’t he do it! Peace and continued Blessings
