Oh it’s soo amazingly nice to be friends with people for years and you see each other off and off but when you do, its like YOU NEVER skipped a beat! Oh how I loved BOTH of these women of God…women of Virtue! Sis. Lorraine is a nice size piece of my past that gives me strength everytime that I see her – She is truly one of God’s special people…

I absolutely adore BOTH of these ladies and thank the Lord that they both have taught ME a multitude of things….

The mental blessings that I obtained on today has once again shifted me onto another path……

Thankful / Grateful For Holy Week –


1Holy Week is the week preceding Easter and the final week of Lent. Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday and ends with Holy Saturday, the day before Easter Sunday. Holy Week includes Holy Thursday (also known as Maundy Thursday) and Good Friday, which, together with Holy Saturday, are known as the Triduum.

During Holy Week, Proud Christians “LIKE MYSELF”……..commemorate the Passion of Christ, Who died on Good Friday in reparation for the sins of mankind, and rose on Easter Sunday to give new life to all who believe. Thus, while Holy Week is solemn and sorrowful, it also anticipates the joy of Easter through the recognition of God’s goodness in sending His Son to die for our salvation.

10 Mind TwistingThings


I was thinking ( AS USUAL ) and things via The Old Testament……The New Testament and PRESENT DAY LIVING with the different cultures – traditions – cultures – morals – values and beliefs and I do not feel that there is not ONE ethnic group that follows ” THEIR OWN” Holy Scriptures 100%. We all find ways to add or take away the full value for our own purpose or use. The Old Testament has its own set of rules just as The New Testament does but haven’t you also noticed that our Present Day Living Habits have developed its own set of rules? Seriously!

It sounds like the passages forbid all wearing of braids, gold, pearls, or costly clothing. But note that 1 Timothy 2 lists kinds of clothing women should “not” wear, but included is simply “putting on apparel” (ASV). Obviously women are not absolutely forbidden to wear apparel.

In Prov. 31:21,22, the worthy woman was praised because she provided for her family and herself clothing of scarlet, fine linen, and purple. In Gen. 24:22 Abraham’s servant gave a gold nose ring and gold bracelets to Rebekah when he sought her to be Isaac’s wife.

Many Bible passages contain a “not (this), but (that)” expression, which is not intended to absolutely prohibit the first item (“not this”). The intent is rather to emphasize the second item (“but that”) as being far more important than the first. The first item may, in some such expressions, be absolutely wrong. But sometimes it is not wrong, but is just not to be emphasized as the second item is.

Well  the scripture talking about NOT wearing basically gold / tons of jewelry would be one that I would need some serious help with! LOL There are times that I have on so much GAUDDI Jewelry that you would think that I was a PERSIAN! However, I feel that I wear it “tastefully and very modestly” and I feel bare without it to be honest.

10. Women cover your hair in church 1 Corinthians 11: 5-6: “But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.”

Respect and Hate seems to find itself in the same sentence when it comes to the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Well that is what usually happens when there are people who admire you from afar or up close but will NEVER tell you how much they indeed admire you too!

I had to use a football theme because football seems to be America’s sport and the Pittsburgh Steelers have fans all around the world. Therefore if they follow the Steelers, than they also follow their rival (s) via who they don’t get along with. Rivalries seem to make good excitement for football fans and sends the Nielson Ratings through the roof which promotes great t.v.

However, playing the role of an obnoxious and disrespectful person for a short 60 minutes of football can drag your character in the mud eventually because the more that you play / become someone who you are not “for whatever reason”…those habits that you portray so well will eventually become who you are!

I don’t know why its harder for people to give compliments than give harsh words. Yes, I do understand via football that it’s a manly thing to be tough, be disrespectful seem rude ( NOT OBNOXIOUS, like Linebacker James Harrison >> geesh! )……. Sad to say but most people operate better when there is some type of rival or bitterness going on in their lives than peace and harmony!

So when you have people who you admire, why not take the high road and be the example. People speak negative when they cannot carry out what you have already done and their IMMATURITY prevents them from coming to you as and adult to have a grown conversation. Respect and Honor are two things that cannot be freely given but in the age of where CASH IS KING – people feel otherwise.  Okay, go ahead and think about that for this Sunday’s game (s)….
