My son is indeed the APPLE of my eye!! Mom, women aren’t supposed to pump gas and other things if a MAN is around! I am thanking God for allowing me to have 2 parents that showed me the things of life…. because I surely passed them down. My daddy, RIP ( Norris Coleman) especially showed me what men are to do AND not to do –

Son: Mom tell me what you want from me and I will buy it or do it

Me: Aww baby, you are already doing it – being a good Christian boy and I thank God 4 you

Son: Thanks mom but for real, I want to take care of you

Me: GIGGLE… Jared my love – you have been ever since you were in my stomach!!

Son: Well Here Mom, here is a start……

Me: I’m crying because he spent his piggy bank money on me to show me he loves his mommy!

Dear Lord, thank you for true Godly inheritance….

Family is soo important and I have had to reallllllllllllll -y fight for it over the last 5 years. I am just literally exhausted behind it but I love my kids and I would not trade them for the world… Regardless how #$%#@!@ my 18 year old twins can be MOST of the time! GEESH….

Nonetheless, God has been helping me to remain patient and faithful to them as HE was for me as I was going through my changes and trying to find my way…. then I still scratch my head and say that my 9 1/2 year old does NOT act ANYTHING like my 18 1/2 year old twins…..

Then I scream >> GOD!! I didnt act the way these kids are acting! Then he reminded me again, it is with that same way of thinking is why a lot of people JUDGE.

It is man who places stipulations on what types of sins are just or unjust but God says that we are ALL indeed a mess!

So with that being said….. my kids REALLY teach me the importance of forgiveness because without Christ in my life – I would have dropped them and cut them completely out of my life about 5 years ago. Family is a must and a need for me… so I will continue to ask God how to show me how to effectively parent my children….

Relationships

Saturday Part #3


My kids were so happy to see their God Mother that I felt bad telling them that we could not hang that long! I already know that I am going to have to pull my kids away after a minute if we are to stay on schedule!! I was trying to share my time in 4 different areas and evidently I packed too  much of it into one day!!  I still loved seeing everyone and all of the ripping and running……. LOL

They talked and hugged and laughed until it made my heart smile! Nikki has been an amazing impact in my 18 1/2 year old twins lives ever since they were about 5 years old and she has been consistent… so naming her God Mother over my 9 year old was easy as well. She has such a great spirit and a huge heart and the kids soo genuinely love her…. you can see it everytime they see one another…. Jaylen LOVES her to pieces… and now that she has a son of her own, Jared feels that he is the big brother and tries to help her… funny!

 I am blessed to just be able to document the NEW MOMENTS in my life… May God continue to bless the Porter, Smith, Jones and Coleman families! Mom Smith, Nikki, Ray, Little Ray, Cornell, Toy and Little CJ have ALL been there for me as well… GEESH… they know a little chunck of my story!!! I am grateful for the part  ( s ) that God allowed them to play and they chose to play in my life…..

Relationships

F. Y. I. Folks


People may know my name BUT they are not aware of MY story…..

People may know of several things that I have done via ministry, political and for different communities BUT they have no idea of what I have been through!

Truth be told if some had to wear my shoes, im sure that they would slide or flip off of their feet due to them being too big to wear.

Or they wouldnt know what direction to walk in due to the fact of things looking easy but soon to discover that things are NOT easy.

Just because you come in contact with someone, or be a co worker, or share the same friends DOES NOT mean thay you really know them….

It just means that you know of them, which there is a huge difference.

You know the surface me and the little things that I have chosen to share with the public which some actually have taken that little bitty silly and surface information as A PASS of knowing ME personally.

LOL…… Sorry but your are mistaken!

Helping Self...

Dear God


To know you is to see life in a special and ever so unique way…. Your love, your wisdom, your gifts, your talents, your compassion, your heart and your interest in ME is very humbling.

The way that that you have proven your feelings towards me have awaken new things in me for such an appreciation for the real meaning of life…..on earth as well as in Heaven.

I just wanted and needed to say Thank You for showing ME another perspective on the things of life and made me realize that the things of the world are indeed temporary and carnal.

I am glad that your ways are not my ways because I have indeed proven to you and to myself that I cannot live this life on my own!

God, I surely celebrate our differences, because they provide a richness and a sincere depth of understanding that would otherwise be MISSING in MY life.

God, thank you for sending your only begotton son to this filthy world to shed his blood for someone so undeserving like me…

I try to live right everyday but even with the little things, I still do fall at times and I am sorry. By the way, as you have already noticed…..I STILL lack patience, so can I have aome help?

Sorry for being sooooo long winded, but hey you created me so im going to assume you like hearing my voice often! I love you and thank you for all of our past, present and future chats!

This is one relationship thay I hold dear to my heart and its my goal to make YOU a priority morning….noon and night.

Okay, chat with you later!
