Dream Small

Hello there!

I TOLD YOU SO, I TOLD YOU SO! Didn't I tell you MEET THE BROWNS was hilarious? Thank you for watching MEET THE BROWNS last night! You have no idea how much your support means to us. Just keep watching and watch how this show blossoms.

In my last email I said I wanted to talk to you about dreams. So this is a follow-up to that. I'm on the cover of ESSENCE this month. It's on the stands now. I talk a little bit about this. Pick it up if you can. Okay, I'll try to make this short but when I start talking about dreams I get a little long-winded.

I don't think I told you about this. When I was on the stand for that trial last month my lawyer, Veronica Lewis of Dallas, asked me a question that I had never thought about. She asked me, "Where do your Christian messages come from in your work?" I sat on the stand and I thought about that and it hit me. I have spoken many times about the kind of man that my father was, and don't get me wrong I don't want to beat a dead horse, but I can't tell you how I got to my answer without explaining this to you.

When I was very young, about 5 or 6 years old, Monday through Thursday was pretty uneventful in my house most of the time. But on Friday and Saturday he would go out and get drunk and come home and all hell would break loose. And as a little boy I would feel so helpless watching this man beat my mother. I would sit in the corner covering my ears wanting the madness to stop. Most times, after it was over, I would lay next to her trying to comfort her as we would both cry ourselves to sleep.... that's still hard to think about. Anyway, early Sunday morning she would wake me up and take me to church. Most of the time it would just be the two of us. We'd get there and my uncle, Rev. D. J. Campbell, would be up preaching. I would look over the pews and see my mother smiling. Then she would sing in the choir and she would be happy. When she smiled I smiled wider, when she laughed I laughed harder, when she sang I sang louder. So, when my lawyer asked me that question all I could say was, "I wanted to know the God that made my mother smile." I wanted to know this Jesus that my uncle preached about. I get a chill even thinking about it now.

My uncle would preach and say things like, "Pray, and if you have faith and believe, God will do it for you. Just believe." Now, while most of the kids my age were playing or asleep, I was listening. You would be surprised what a 6-year-old will listen to. Even though I was very young, I heard that. Not only did I hear it, I wanted to see for myself. So, I put this "pray, believe, and have faith" thing to the test. Now at that age, I had a vivid imagination and I thought that the people on the TV were little people trapped inside the TV, and that if I could get inside of it, I could take them out and have my own little family that would talk to me and that I could love and take care of. I wouldn't dare go behind that old floor model color Zenith and unscrew something--I would have been murdered for sure...LOL. But, I remembered my uncle's words and I prayed and asked God to send me some little people to take care of. Now this sounds like an impossible prayer for God to answer, but one day while I was at school, a lady who lived across the street was moving away and she had asked my mother if she could leave something for me. My mother said yes and when I got home there it was, a three-story bamboo house with two living creatures that spoke to me! They said, "Hello!" There were two parakeets. I thought God had answered my prayer. Listen to me when I tell you, something got born in me that day. I had prayed, believed, and had faith and it had come to pass.

From that day to this one it is that process that I have used to see all my dreams come true. Pray, believe, and have faith. It started with something as simple and small as two parakeets for me. If you start believing for little things, it will allow you to grow into believing for all things. That's the way to see all your dreams come true.

If you've been trying the same thing over and over and aren't getting any results then how about in 2009 trying something else? It doesn't matter if a million people tell you what you can't do, or if ten million tell you no. If you get one yes from God that's all you need.

This year PRAY, BELIEVE, and have FAITH for your one YES!

God bless you today.

Tyler P.

Then you thank them for helping you with your mind..... The world respect you for who you are.... Obviously, cause you're a star..... Your life have intrigued me...... People telling me or indirectly...... Go talk to Tyler Perry...... So I fought to be in your ear....... You write messages but I'm still here....... To get to you I had calculated a year..... Your life has moved farther from since I've been here..... I'm not trying to say that I'd helped you at all...... But the single thought has me to call..... For many seasons with you I've been running in a ball...... You do encourage me in many ways...... I also thank you for your movies and plays..... But Perry I've lived the life.....You seem to match, so of course I'll get upset if you have found a wife..... I'll my palm up on your table..... But the thought would come to me, if in real life, you are just like Clarke Gable....... Don't care who heart you break..... Money comes and you will give but the majority is take,take,take....... If you, can find it in your heart to do...... Send us a picture today of......YOU. 02/20/2016 at 9:58am Be blessed

    You love when someone lifts you. Well, n**** help me get grounded by showing me that your not playing with my feelings. Do you really see me before all your Fans? Come on now I ain't crazy. You seem like you're talking to me. Or maybe I love you so much to the point my eyes playing tricks on me? That's why when I got that thought of an old love I went for it. Cause I remember that being real. On here, I'm writing to you. You spoke today and once again I'm back in love with you. I detest that!!! Cause you are a Make-Believe-Man . And I'm just a Fan. Prove me wrong, please.

    When a man show me who he wants to be with I get mad but.... Did you show me that because you was mad? You sent emails for years. Sometimes I think they were left for me to find someday. Like you don't know who you're writing too but you know there is one woman out here who would collect all these letters and know exactly what you meant. Then again, it might just be my imagination. Are you up? Do you see me?

WHEN IM QUIET

    When I was talking to Jehovah, you had sent out a message. Of course I was so happy to see you write and then attach a picture but I felt I wanted to know more from you. Perry, We are all attach to you for many reasons. I got one of my dream jobs. I toss a lot of your emails to the side because you're not responding to questions I want to know. One question is Do you want to be with me? That question hurts me so much. If not, say so. Do I not deserve that one answer? Let me write you something cause you are starting to be just like the rest of the men to me.

    I have a dream about to come true!!! You remember that rose bush??? Well, that dream ain't the dream I'm talking about. Even though, I would love for it to come true. I wonder what Jehovah was thinking about me at that rose bush?
