Remembering – ” Him Daily”


What are your daily priorities in life? Brushing your teeth: brushing your hair, showering, putting on your best outfit of the day etc..etc.. These are some simple priorities and most of the time it comes ever so natural to us – part of our daily routine right?

Welp, God longs to be a part of our everyday routine as well. By being involved in church, the activities or group that are offered there, reading our Bible everyday and praying is a great way to have Christ a part of our daily routines -

If we start our day with HIM when we are in the process of ending our days, it will be less stressful – (try it) The moral of the story is that we can honor God with hour head, heart and hands, but it is up to us to decided whether or not we are going to.

Don’t honor everything and everyone else and disregard Christ -

Being A Good Athlete –


Being a Christian is a lot like being an athlete. It requires training, lots of practice and a dedication to discipline. In scripture, The Apostle Paul uses a lot of sports metaphors to get this idea across to his readers.

Every athlete exercises discipline in every way. They do it to win a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one. This, I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified.ʺ (1 Corinthians 9:24-27)

Notice that he is not speaking here of just the intellectual training in faith, but the bodily reality of it too. There is in this passage a recognition of the whole person.

Our faith is not just an intellectual exercise. We must live it out in the very reality of our daily lives. This takes a training of the mind and the body. For we are called to run a very real race throughout the course of our entire lives. We are called to believe and to serve. And our faith is not a spectator sport.

With all of that being said >>>> GO RAVENS!

Today Still Counts – Right?


YESTERDAY- marked the anniversary of the invasion of Islamic Terrorists on our “land of the free AND home of the rave” United States Territory on September 11th

YESTERDAY -A great deal of people had posts on social media sites, all of the news stations had coverage, people were discussing this in general conversation and of course it made the front cover of several magazines.

Well that is my whole point – ALL of these things and more transpired on YESTERDAY…….Now that TODAY is September 12th – the atmosphere with the ” WE SHALL NEVER FORGET ” hash-tags, sayings, slogans and even bumper stickers have quickly and clearly left and remains as an AFTERTHOUGHT to those were not personally affected -

Well today is September 12th and I AM STILL REMEMBERING the people and families affected by this horrific event that had “TEMPORARILY” united and brought all Americans together – God Bless

Ugghhh, Lord Help –


Being grateful in a place called America that tends to offer so many opportunities can make being GRATEFUL a “full time job”

No of course it should not be the case and we should thank God for all of the little, medium sized, large and even extra large blessings that He PERMITS us to have and maintain –  However – AMERICA and us being human beings can become either:

1. lazy

2. ungrateful

3. GREEDY

4. selfish

I will STOP there because God knows that there should not even be a list to even create! So many unfortunate people in the world and we worry about SILLY things to buy, to wear, to drive, to listen to, restaurants to eat at, the latest technological gadget to buy, the movie was just released – UGGGGHHHHH!! Lord help us your people, starting with ME -

Today’s Wednesday Babble


  • Just because someone says they don’t like something about you doesn’t mean it’s bad or you need to change it. Depending on what it is; often it’s a matter of preference.
  • Don’t feel the need to do something spectacular or out of the ordinary to be an individual, all you need to show is who YOU are inside.
  • Change is a constant. So changing who you are over time is inevitable, and is always likely to be a good thing if you’ve stayed informed, relevant, and clued in to the world around you and have allowed your personal development to be a top priority in your life.
  • Even if your friends seem different, don’t hold back. Be yourself and if they don’t accept you they aren’t your real friends.
  • If you need to be yourself, do what your heart tells you to do, say what you feel deep inside.If people bully you, you don’t have to bully them back, just turn around and ignore them. Do what you want to do now it doesn’t mean that you should go insane.Be sane and always put a smile on your face.
  • Striving to be something you’re not can be unhealthy when it involves improving academic, sport, and social interactions skills. It can be highly harmful when you’re striving to “be like” someone else just to have their popularity, appearance, and attitudes rub off on you. Keep unique by keeping your perspective focused on building your strengths through the inspiration of others, not through becoming like them.
  • Fads and trends are a personal decision. While some people avoid them like the plague in the name of “individualism”, it doesn’t mean you’re not being yourself when you choose to follow a trend. It’s all about what you want.
