A Different Stage Of Life

If I see something I want to be apart of, I usually do whatever I can to make it happen.  If I want to join something, I research or observe the workings of that group then mimic all things positive to make the grade so to speak. I've done that for as long as I …

When God Chooses to Walk You Through Rather Then Remove the Obstacle

Have you ever asked the Lord to change you? I have. I've asked him to remove things that were so innate in me; things that were at the very essence of me but caused problems in my relationships. It was a very hard time. I have recently had to take another spin on that Merry-go-Round. …

Father’s Are Important Too

Every other commercial, news outlet, sports program, and print advertisement told people that Mother's Day was near.  The date was given and the countdown was repeated. 'Mother's Day is in two weeks!  Mother's Day is next Sunday!  Mother's Day is tomorrow!  Don't forget about your mom!'  Could not enter a store without a sign giving …

HE Catches Me Before I Fall

One sentence spoken from my daughter Jazmine.  One wishful thought that I can't fathom how to accomplish. Either of these can send me down an unprofitable thought rabbit-hole. I recall a Gospel song There Is No Failure where one of the lines in the song is, catches you before you fall.  It is so very …

She Said I Was Beautiful

I clearly remember my father specifically, saying I was beautiful when I was growing up. He would tell me I was a "gorgeous hunk of female".  Of course I enjoyed hearing that and that affirmation told me I wasn't ugly or undesirable.  When I was becoming a young woman and was passed over by guys …
