Have You Asked the Question?
"How precious is the love of the person I hold dear?" We ask you: "Are you taking her/him for granted?" If you are . . . one day that person may not be there for you. Duane Parham obviously thought about what it means to have a "precious love" for him to "cover" the Marvin Gaye/Tammy Terrell version of "Your Precious Love" and . . . make into a video. Presently, it has over 10,000 views on Youtube.
What It Means to Be Precious
As I reflected on the word "precious" in terms of a person, words like: "priceless, treasure, dear, invaluable" and "beloved" came to mind. Taking a step further, it means someone you can count on during the highs as well as the lows . . . someone who always has your back. It would be wise to not abuse that relationship in any way. Watch and listen for a few seconds. . .
Duane Parham Unmasked
Let's talk about Duane Parham. Who is he? Duane is the father of three (3) adult female children. Each has carved out a successful path for herself. After two (2) divorces, his saxophone has become a constant companion. Parham would be lost without it. This is not to say he does not have a special "female companion somewhere."
Most of Duane's musical career has been in service to others. Yea . . . he has CDs and albums, but countless families have and continue to look to his musical performances at their weddings, funerals, birthday celebrations and parties. Further, he and his band have traveled across America and played in clubs and festivals for many years. This is an enjoyment he continues to enjoy.
