How often have you gotten a fresh start with anything? Maybe it was a fresh start with a new move to a city, a new job, or even a newfound appreciation of life. Sometimes in order for us to have that “fresh start,” we need to surrender what may be on our hearts. Continue reading
The Story Behind our Gift
“If only I could tell myself then what I know now,” is an all too common phrase said by many. Sometimes our gifts are the stories we express to others- the words we would tell our younger selves. Continue reading
If you take a look at my last few blog posts, you’ll notice that they are product reviews, and the most recent heartfelt post was from March 2019. It was about my experience with the loss of my Mom. I told myself that I wasn’t going to let anything keep me from writing because Mom wouldn’t want me to stop.
But, I stopped. Continue reading
They say that books “take you places,” and I completely agree. Growing up, I had my head in a good book, and there is nothing like sitting in your favorite spot or cuddled up in bed with a book. I got my bookworm genes from my Dad and Nanny; Nanny would always have books everywhere in her house, Continue reading
As I write this, my heart hurts. My heart hurts for the daughters that did not get the chance to reconcile with their Mamas before it was too late. My heart hurts for the daughters that maybe said something they wish they could take back or wish they could have said anything. Continue reading
I have to be honest. Sometimes, I start Bible studies with full intention on completing them, and once I start digging in the study, it is not what I expected or my time slips away as I fully intend to do the day-by-day devotions. I end up starting day one on day ten for the daily devotionals. What I have learned that works for me is just because there is a Bible study offered does not mean I have to do every single one of them to seek God. Continue reading
As some may already know, my sweet Mama went to be with the Lord at the end of February, and I will be honest in saying that I am not okay. I have good days still, but I have been turning to prayer or engaging into something uplifting for others as a way to cope. I do not know how long I will feel this way, but I do know that as time goes by, it becomes easier even in the midst of missing Mama. Continue reading
Hello everyone! I normally make posts at least once a week, but for the whole month of February, I had to tend to family matters. My sweet Mama became very sick and was hospitalized for over two weeks. Sadly, she lost her battle, but she gained a new body with no more pain, tears, and bad experiences. I was very close to Mama and it hurts that I cannot pick up my phone to call her, but I am blessed she was able to be a part of my blogging and writing journey in the beginning.
Happy 2019, ladies! I pray that you enjoyed bringing the new year in with your loved ones. I fell asleep before midnight and slept in- the best way to bring a new year for myself. Continue reading
I have been listening to a podcast recently on my way to work by Dr. Mike Glenn, the pastor of Brentwood Baptist Church, entitled “Creating Real Marriages that Last”. He touches on everything from learning your spouses love language, to parenting your children, to being a parent to your parent when that time come. Something specifically stuck out to me last week while i was listening on my way to work. The specific episodes that stood out where entitled ” Marriage is not 50/50″ and “Renegotiating the marriage contract” Throughout these episodes he made many valid points, but these two that I am writing about are things that I hear about a lot.
We hear this statement all the time. Marriage is 50/50. Is it really? Why would you as a wife or a husband only give half of your ability and energy to your marriage and expect it to…
