Steadfast Faith.

Once upon a time I went to South Africa.  I never I swear believed such a  dream was possible. Sometime it still feels like a dream. Well, actually it was a dream come true. Its the first time I realized I could hold God to His word, and see the outcome of a literal miracle….

  8. Oh Jesus…50!! #50DaysToFifty

Yeah so when I was a little girl I really thought fifty was a big deal. I could never see myself as almost or even near fifty, and if I did make it there, I thought it would be a miracle. And so.. Now I am here. And all the more WONDERFUL  that I am. Amazing. I still…

I Am Enough Because I BELONG.

Friends. How many of us have them! ( I used to love that song the rapper sings and I used to love it so much I think because I actually loved having friends. ) Listen to the beat here I used to listen to in high school and tell me what you think. To be…

6. #50DaysToFifty: Joy At 50. Do Your Hearts Work.

Ava Duvernay inspires me. As I get older and wiser, I look to women like her, to inspire me. Strong, Powerful Black Woman, who doesn’t forget the skin she’s in.  That has brought to light (on film) what the discrepancies are that exist between Blacks and Whites (in the Netflix movie 13th); and even giving…

5. Missing babies… My #50daystofifty series…

So one of the blessings of being almost 50 is I get to enjoy all the babies without bringing them all home. I guess Auntie’s are good for that, huh? Awesome, right? I have never had the pleasure of having children born from my own womb, so I just borrow other’s babies..but indeed, like the…

Spending Time At Home – As Friends.

When I was little, I used to spend time making friends. I cared so much about people. When my sister’s and brothers boyfriends and girlfriends cam over I’d hang, too. When in elementary school, the people others didn’t like, I would befriend them. They could see too, that I liked them. I never had a…

Day 4. Weathered. #50daysToFifty

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassions, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not…

I Am Enough, Because I Am Imperfect.

I am. I’m Imperfect. And it’s ok.  Took me  a  while to  realize  this ,  though.  I am a perfectionist.  Not  sure where that began, but  it  has something to  do with major  anxiety.  (Yeah,  that’s me.) Sometimes. I  just  recently  took an  exam, and  I didn’t pass.     I didn’t pass  by  five…

Day 3: The Blessing of (Spiritual) Maturity. #50DaystoFifty

Ahhh…. The blessing of Maturity! Feels good, right? Ha! (Yeah right.) So, today I  am  writing today about  maturity.  Well…  when you really look at  it, maturity is  necessary,. We  don’t get any  younger, and with every  turn of   a  lesson learned, we need to gather the information  and use it, for some good, right? …
