Dear ( ME )

Random – Prayer

Jesus, help me to continue to have the heart and motivation of the Samaritan when he saw the needy man along the way. Taking the time to stop and help wasn’t on his schedule and his medical expenses weren’t in the Samaritan’s budget.

He didn’t consider these factors to be an obstacle that would keep him from extending Your mercy to one in need. Jesus, help me to be Your hand extended reaching out to the needy, the sick, and the oppressed.

Lastly right now Lord, when it is not within my ability or power to directly reach that person in need, prompt me to bring him before the throne in earnest prayer.

When it is YOUR will, please help me…show me..guide me to be a CHOSEN vessel that You use to heal the broken-hearted as You bind up their wounds.

Father, I will do it in Jesus’ name and for Your honor. Amen.

Dear God – You Are …..


Helping Self...

Up Early –


Whew….. I go to the gym ONLY 3 days a week and I am DESPERATELY trying to do better so I can become better…..feel better and MOST IMPORTANTLY – look better! LOL Nonetheless, this getting up super early is not blessing me right now because I am about to go for a run –

pray my strength in The Lord….. Im so serious – UGGHHH

I am praying that I dont need a stretcher….  because running outside IS VERY DIFFERENT than running on a treadmill in a gym or your home!

Family

Cemetery Visit


This may seem weird to some BUT – my family spent about 3 hours at the cemetery to visit my beloved Big Mom ( grandmother ), my Aunt Clara ( which we all forgot was buried next to my Big Mom ) and for my family to pick out out burial plots next to each other so that when”that day comes” all will be taken care of.

 

I have to admit that I was AN EMOTIONAL WRECK when I saw my Auntie Clara’s site..

I used to think that going to grave sites were a bit weird but it was REALLY therapy for me when I decided to go… Yes we initially all went to the grave site because we were choosing our markers, plots etc..etc..etc… but I WAS NOT going to leave without “stopping by” seeing my grandmother’s ( Big Ma’s ) burial plot. Yes… I was so happy that I did – it opened and closed a great deal of wounds that I had no idea was there…..

Nonetheless, we all had a nice time at the CEMETERY if that makes any sense or even SOUNDS RIGHT!  Well wait – my 10 year old HATED THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE……. He said it kept making him think of his father being dead….which he meant was my dad because he called my dad, Daddy as well. However, with the other family that was there just connecting with one another BLESSED ME…. and eventually – he SEMI got over it….. he ran up to the top of the cemetery because… he was INDEED over the whole death talk!

 Well thank goodness that MY MOMMY is still alive and doing well and I thank God DAILY….

My Mommy Doodle was very happy to be at the grave site as well. She smiled so hard when she saw her OWN MOTHER‘S grave marker– My mom is SOOOOO STRONG and to see her even be sad even for a second almost knocked me over…. She is indeed my SHE – RO! Hero in female form! LOL

We all cracked jokes on how we are happy that we were all able to obtain grave plots all in a row next to one another. I video taped our little happy meeting scenario and it was cute and sad all at the same time.

Regardless, being with my family is just plain old amazing! ( some of them at least ) My father taught me as early as in middle school the importance of getting our DEAD WORK together! I know it sounds a tad bit harsh but that is what my daddy called it and it surely makes sense to get things in order BEFORE you die! Okay enough death talk…..

Dear ( ME )

quick #reminder


Things have been up and down so so many time with me emotionally THIS WEEK ALONE……. but I still desire to press…..

I WILL……….I CAN………..I MUST…………….  = FAITH

Being strong will test you in ways that you thought were not possible but remind yourself who you are and who you belong to in GOD..

Surround yourself with POSITIVE people… it does not have to be the same people all of the time…. VENTURE OUT and allow your circle to grow!!!! You don’t need everyone in your circle to think like you!!… >> you will never grow that way but even if you do find some way to SQUEEZE growth out of the same circle…. your growth wont be too much….. take your own assessment and you will see!
