– Are Parents Aware?


image

My son is about 7 or 8 years old in this photo above and I could just remember his personality even back then…. He was very strong willed / minded for his age and it was a beautiful season to watch him be 7 or 8 years old “on paper” …..but Naturally and Spiritually he was SOOO MUCH OLDER!! Or should I say wiser….

Even down to video games – if it is not a sports game like baseball, soccer – forget about it – parents who allow their kids to play things like Call of Duty do not understand what they are getting themselves into!!

– but just imagine that if I did not steer him in the right direction of what is right and wrong – who knows how he would have turn out –

Video games that are displaying killing, cussing, vulgar and explicit acts puts your children’s mind – body – soul and SPIRIT at risk……

The behaviors of kids today are so out of control and it isn’t just the videos games, but the things that they are viewing, the music they listening to etc… the disrespectful behavior to authority is just simply mind boggling.

However, as a parent… you must first even believe in the things that I am speaking of to even understand the point of this post…..

Try Jesus Christ….. let Him come into your heart and speak to you in regards to raising / rearing your children.

Without Christ… THERE IS NO WAY that my son would be the young Christian man that he currently is……for that I certainly am grateful everyday-

Road Trip –


image

Most people think of the phrase ROAD TRIP with their best buddies and they are going to have a ball…..which there is NOTHING wrong with that.. but when I think of road trip – I think of MY SON and driving to see him up at college… I had such a nice time with him this weekend and just being THERE with him –

I don’t know who gets happier me, his little brother or him! Nonetheless, I am elated that he knows that his mommy loves him and knows that I am here for him – This boy is my other baby he just happens to be 20 years old! Sitting around his apartment as well as running errands for me MAKES ME FEEL GOOD as his mother –

My oldest sister is just as AMAZING and my son was telling his girlfriend that he considers her as his second mother…she teared up on the sly of course…. FAMILY is just amazing ya know and I am surely grateful that God is moving His hand our way.

God heals and restores and that indeed is what God has done for my family – I am so grateful that I just think about the goodness of God and how far me and my babies have come and I just drop a few tears… I am just enjoying MY SON with all of his growth and maturity….him being away at college reminds me that he is really getting older and growing up!

As I was laying in the bed with MY 20 year old BABY over the weekend in his apartment up at college, I thought to myself that I didn’t want to move! Lol

Honey, I NEVER THOUGHT that I would be HAPPY to dive 3 and 1/2 hours monthly…LOL ( pray for us all please )

Such An Embarrassment –


These folks are FOOLS! I mean, I am NOT ONLY upset because George Zimmerman got off guilty …I AM UPSET BECAUSE A GREAT DEAL OF THINGS go wrong in the American justice system. To be honest, Trayvon Martin’s case just was yet ANOTHER cherry on top of the high stack of issues in this country…. BUT the people in this video are very foolish!

I am not and will not go out and loot neighborhoods and these folks are so idiotic that they are LOOTING and ROBBING their OWN neighborhoods!!  Ugghhh – so idiotic that this is crazy! People any type of education and with  jobs who had to get up in the morning surely was not out there robbing and attacking the police in the late hours at night acting a fool and trying to use TRAYVON MARTIN’S DEATH for the excuse to steal and act a fool! The stores that are being looted..those people own businesses and HAVE INSURANCE POLICIES for this type of nonsense……

Only in AMERICA –

P.S. African-American black men NEED to take this same anger and STOP fighting and killing EACH OTHER too!!

Because I am sooooooooooooooooo sick of hearing that “THE WHITE MAN” did everything wrong when it comes to things that do not go right in their lives!!

Light skinned man kills Dark skinned man BUT blames White skinned man?? STOP IT!! The white man cannot take all the negative credit – look on the news…look in your neighborhoods….look within your household….look in the mirror too! Come on people – this anger is NOT ONLY about Trayvon Martin, it is a multiplicity of things why people are angry – let us have a few in depth conversations to see where do we go from here and how MORE things can be fixed! It is a crying shame to use the death of a mourning family to use the death of their son as an excuses or scapegoat to act a fool when the problem indeed is bigger than poor Trayvon Martin and a whole slew of other African American murdered males.

Why My 11 Year Old DOES NOT Play Football


JaleelJaleel Gipson was taken off life support following a tragic football injury. (Facebook)

Jaleel Gipson,#33, died after a tragic injury suffered in a Spring tackle drill

A  high school junior, Gipson was lined up as a running back on the play that left him injured. While carrying the ball, he was hit in a traditional shoulder-on-shoulder tackle. Instead of bouncing back up, Gipson couldn’t raise himself from the ground. An athletic trainer was on site and attended to Gipson immediately while the team awaited paramedics, who transported the back to a local hospital and then to LSU via helicopter.

While it initially appeared that Gipson might be able to regain motor functions –Farmerville Principal David Gray stated the injury that the school was holding out hope he would make a complete recovery — the teen’s condition deteriorated much in the days that followed, to the point that his family apparently began to realize on Sunday that he would not recover mental capabilities.

That’s when the Gipson family apparently decided to keep their son on life support long enough to prepare his body for organ donation. Once that process was complete on Monday, the Gipson family said its goodbyes and removed him from life support.

Super Bowl Excitement –

If anyone has ever read my blogs…..you know that I am a serious Baltimore Ravens Fan!!

I am in no way shape or form shocked that the offense and defense have pulled off an upset over the New England Patriots to head to the 2013 Big Showdown!

They have not been there in about 10 or 12 years ago! Well with Ray Lewis retiring this year, it reminded me of when Pittsburgh Steelers fullback Jerome Bettis decided to retire and then things went his way for the remaining weeks.

RAYL

Congrats to both of the coaches that are going to Super Bowl and with them being brothers, I know that their parents are so proud!

Little Birdies –


I am glad that I can go to bed now….. Sunday Night Football is always so so exciting!  Yes, even without the great Ray Lewis…..My beautiful  birds( RAVENS ) did what they were supposed to do tonight – beat the Pittsburgh Steelers! I understand that the black and gold felt as if they could come out with a win because they had a home game but I am so sorry!

It was almost like how Mitt Romney felt as if that he was going to win and DID NOT write a speech in case if he lost… Well – the Pittsburgh Steelers need to respect the birds! LOL

FINAL SCORE Baltimore Ravens 13 and The Pittsburgh Steelers 10…. Steelers, until we meet again in 2 weeks! Peace out-
