Who Is In Office?


Oval%20Office020

Ummmm… last time that I checked…. A United States President “represented” power and he or she ( Hillary 2016 ) was able to make MAJOR EXECUTIVE DECISIONS without the “okay” from congress…….. ( folk that represent the 50 states within the United States )…….

For a mega power county leader to NOT make a decision because he wanted “others” to be apart of the process is MIND BOGGLING to me…. I mean if you want CONGRESS “to help you” to decide…. WHY ARE YOU IN OFFICE? For all that , I should have AT LEAST ran for office…..

I mean the WORLD is watching and I am sure that although this is President Barack Obama’s last term in office he is thinking of his legacy. Well, Mr. President, there are tons of other things that has already transpired during your two terms so your legacy will NOT look like Lyndon B. Johnson, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy or Bill Clinton.

I mean – is this really AMERICA in this crisis right now? Families of military troops are all excited that the United States has been slowly but surely being pulled from the Middle East……. but if we know our great country of AMERICA – those same troops that were promised a date to “go home” with their families will be DETOURED TO SYRIA!

Ugghh… I wish that the country that I lived in operated with more BACKBONE – and why did no one care about SUDAN when ( and still ) going through all of the killings….. MASS MURDERING / RAPES etc???

Networking With Positivity –

You’ll attract what you depict about yourself. So if you want to be with / or around a certain type of person then you have to display it in all facades, mentally, physically and spiritually.

I remind my son daily that although it is important to have a variety of friends. Having manners, saying please and thank you, knowing how to interact with common sense is very basic but indeed VERY vital.

However, if he plays the drums, the tenor saxophone, plays baseball, plays soccer, plays basketball and reads books on a weekly basis – It would NOT be such a great idea if he started hanging around friends who did NOTHING that he participated in. It is like being unequally matched up even as friends.

No your friends should not do everything the same, but it would make sense to spend your time with individuals who are like minded.

I am not speaking of ONLY personal male female relationships…. I am talking in reference to ANY type of places in life that you desire to catapult to.

Winners notice winners and mock what they did or are doing so that they too, can not only become a winner as well but maintain being a winner.

The image you portray yields the person you’ll draw to you so don’t get mad at what’s coming to you…check the mirror and see what you’re displaying!

Dear Life – Thank You!


Make a pact with yourself today to not be defined by your past. Sometimes the greatest thing to come out of all your hard work isn’t what you get for it, but what you become for it. Shake things up today! Be You…Be Free…Share…….

Don’t confuse poor decision-making with destiny. Own your mistakes. It’s ok; we all make them. Learn from them so they can empower you! I have learned to just say THANK YOU to all of the good – the bad – the ugly as well as the horrid things that has transpired in my life. God allowed it so I might as well say thank you and learn from the situations at hand!

It is important that we forgive ourselves for making mistakes. We need to learn from our errors and move on.. You must learn to let go. Release the stress. You were never in control anyway…….  One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity. Connect with those around you today. Say “i love you”, “i’m sorry”, “i appreciate you”, “i’m proud of you”…whatever you’re feeling. Send random texts, write a cute note, embrace your truth and share it…cause a smile today for someone else…and give plenty of hugs.”

Life can be good…bad…happy..sad…shocking…wonderful…tragic….humble…immoral….respectful etc..etc..etc.. Nonetheless, LIFE is a gift and it is not our job to constantly ponder why things are the way that they are BUT it is our job to improve or change the things that we desire them to be. Ask God to assist us in removing ourselves from situations that should not be, if that is indeed His will.

Sometimes Life is a big thank you…… you may not see it NOW but in the end – it is all a blessing from on high…… Forget yesterday – it has already forgotten you. Don’t sweat tomorrow – you haven’t even met. Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift – today!

Parenting

Standing Your Ground


Being a Mom is a tough job emotionally and spiritually and I have the wounds to prove it!!!  The last 3 weeks have been like UGGGHHH in regards to my teenage kids….

My son has had a prom and a graduation and have NON – CHALANTLY wanted me to be involved UNLESS it was financially…. I just said Lord, please help me get through this ADDITIONAL MILESTONE in my life as well as theirs! What child calls their mother and says with an ” i dont care attitude ” …………

1.  Oh by the way mom, my prom is on such ‘n such date and you can come if you want to!!!!!!!!!! ( advised me 2 days BEFORE prom ) even after he called me out of the blue and asked me for currency for his prom and I gave it to him. I asked myself, should I have KNOWN about and been apart of the planning process!

2. Oh mom, you didnt show up to my prom and my graduation is on such ‘ such date and you can come if you want to!!!!! ( advised me 4 days BEFORE graduation )

Why was I not involved in this WHOLE PROCESS as your mom? We did have this talk about me wanting to know when, where, what, who etc.. and you can get what you need!

Honestly, I was praying about this whole SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL YEAR in regards to my teenage twins and then I discovered that although I think that I snapped INTERNALLY but I was always STRUGGLING with ” standing my ground ” because I am MOM…..

However, being mom all of these painful years to them have brought me NOTHING but heartache 80% percent of the time and I no longer felt that my heart…my feelings…were not able to deal with anymore constant emotional and mental abuse.. So I was forced to totally be obedient now and take off the MOTHER hat and put on the SPIRITUAL WARFARE hat and operate on that level.

Oh……. Oh …….. Oh…. God was it a struggle in more ways than one! God showed me that too many times have I instructed them both on what is acceptable and not acceptable when it pertains to me and my household and they HAVE ALWAYS CHOSE to do the opposite of what I expected…  Each day of the week it was ALWAYS something different and I bascially took control of my own life and relationship with them… and put it all on the table. If you want a productive – healthy – christian relationship with me, things will have to change. Not even totally overnight but things HAVE TO CHANGE.

Welp, it lasted about 45 days with my daughter and off an on 3 to 5 months for my son but it was STILL unstable in the making… Having the talk with my son totally EXPLAINING WHAT I EXPECTED I felt was good because he stated he understood and ” I assumed that all was well “….. but within 30 days – it was short lived AGAIN.  My Structure – my Faith – my God – my Life etc…etc..etc.. just did not sit well with him.

It was and is sooooooooooooo unfortunate how kids choose wrong paths because of their own doing as well as being INFLUENCED with lies from other family members that are in their lives. Nonetheless, in the end as a woman of Faith and knowing what God told me – ALL IS WELL and I am on the right path for VICTORY!

People may not understand my past – present and future decision making pertaining to MY KIDS but until they look at the WHOLE real picture and seek what the Lord is saying – they never will.

THE BEST PART IS – FINALLY I DONT CARE!  I pray for their souls and await on God’s instructions before I do ANYTHING else on their behalf because it surely is NOT a Tough Love approach but it is Spiritual Warfare.

Getting Along With Others


Learn to Get Along with God‘s People

“I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” (Eph. 4:1-3)

The best way to get along with people is to WANT to get along with them. Satan delights in reaching our hearts through our old nature and causing us to look for sins and faults among God’s people. Remember, it is SATAN who accuses the brethren, NOT YOU (Rev. 12:10). A sensitive and touchy spirit is not the Holy Spirit. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” (Gal. 5:22-23) We need to work hard and really try to get along with the brethren. Consider these fourteen items from God’s word:

  • 1. Love one another – John 15:12, 17
  • 2. Confess faults to one another – Jas 5:16
  • 3. Pray for one another – Jas 5:16
  • 4. Prefer one another – Rom 12:10
  • 5. Receive one another – Rom 5:7
  • 6. Admonish one another – Rom 15:14
  • 7. Serve one another – Gal. 1:3
  • 8. Forbear one another – Eph. 4:2
  • 9. Forgive one another – Eph. 4:32
  • 10. Edify one another – I Ths. 5:11
  • 11. Consider one another – Heb. 10:24
  • 12. Exort one another – Heb. 3;13
  • 13. Care for one another – I Cor. 12:25
  • 14. Comfort one another – I Ths. 4:18

As someone has said, “You’re going to live forever with God’s people, so you may as well learn to get along with them!” I have learned that I can get along with anyone whom I WANT to get along with.

Quick Pep Talk


Everyday is something new and different and im really trying to stay focused….

ministry has shifted me in ways that i never thought could ever happen….. i dont know whether to sigh, cry, laugh or giggle..

there is a HUGE transition that is about to take place in my life.. and i just wish that i was included on the decision making! God got it and im really gonna let him direct my path(s) and try m best not to ask questions…… okay.. i may be tempted to ask a few but i still trust him bottom line…  God and me have a funny relationship that i honor…adore…and would not trade it for the world..

i dont know if the relationship stresses me out..or me trying to figure it out stresses me out…  none of the stress comes from God …although at times i do enjoy thinking things that went wrong in my life are really his fault…his doing…. then he looks at me like.. daughter you are a piece of work… i smile back and say i know dad!!! lol

truth be told…….i guess im just nebby about my future! is that a bad thing! lol
