Lord, you DESERVE all of my praise……. Over and Over and Over and Over and Over…….
Okay – a great deal of people do not like this show called Preachers of LA ..but I actually like the show – Each and every one of these pastors are VERY different in their own right –
Yes, there are some things that may have you scratch your head at times when watching the reality show – BUT do we ALL not do things that have folks scratching their heads as well? Truth be told – if someone offered you a chance to be on a reality television show and you had the control to display how the audience would perceive you – based upon YOUR OWN ACTIONS………………
I AM SURE at least 90 percent of folk would do it – whether it was for fame – money – opportunity or just plain fun! Honey- the video below, I hope you do enjoy because there is nothing like some good preachin…….
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!
Honey, I NEVER THOUGHT that I would be HAPPY to dive 3 and 1/2 hours monthly…LOL ( pray for us all please )
Although this is a cartoon BUT there is truth all through it. I mean really, which headstone is Trayvon Martin? Martin Luther King Jr.? Emmett Till? Darrell Turner Jr? and thousands of other black INNOCENT males? Huh?
Point is that I do not EVER want any of these tombstones to be be connected to or be a representative for anyone who did no wrong to be there.
Let alone yet ANOTHER “racial profile” black male.. Let alone either one if MY OWN sons!
I have to say I have one of the best sisters in the world. We are best buddies, we have built a friendship that has been intended to last forever. Have we always got along? Absolutely not!!!! We fought, slapped, griped, connived, deceived and a bunch of other unmentionables. Why are we best friends? Distance, Pain and Love – that’s why! I was a spoiled BRAT as a child – shame on ME.
But there is no reason why sisters should not be close…..I mean well, why not? Although, GOD KNOWS that we are very different from one another, but yet share the same blood, that is one good reason to love each other. Even though I feel that I was a “mean girl” to her when I was 12 years old and wanted to cause her pain….. love soon resolved the matter and we tearfully made it right and moved on. A moment of forgiveness is more powerful than years of resentment, refrain, abandonment, discord, degrading and avoiding.
There is a certain amount of love and commitment when you are of kindred blood, but if that isn’t enough then we have to selflessly invest into the relationship and be a die-hard mediator that pursues unity. Oh, I almost forgot to say that I love her and feels that she indeed is pretty awesome! LOL

Forgiving somebody means that you no longer hold anger or resentment toward a person who has offended or wronged you. Once you do this, you should resume the normal relationship you had with that person before the event occurred. Forgetting is, of course, when you no longer remember what happened. This is the act of “letting it go” or “moving on.” When you finally forget, you no longer associate the person with the offense.
Forgiving a person and forgetting that person did to you is the only way you can resume a normal relationship with that person. Being able to do this is also a way to build personal character. Nobody is perfect, after all, and there will eventually come a time when you wrong somebody else. You’ll want that person to forgive you and forget what you did when that time comes.
You may not forget that you were wounded, but not focusing on the wound can allow you to forget that the real wound is healing without you even realizing it.
The next time you look up you may recognize that INDEED you do have a SCAR to show that “it did happen” but it will no longer be an issue……… ( MATURITY ) ……it takes time but can be done.
