Blessings with the Wash

It’s Laundry Day again! Tried to put it off as long as I could. But here I am! The Lord met me here today. For real. For the 1st time I noticed an abnormally large group of Caucasian people here (The laundry mat I love is in the ‘hood.). Young adults. I’m going about my … Continue reading

Unemployed Graduate

I wish I knew who the original writer of this story was. It is very moving and I would love to give them credit for it. A friend of mine posted it on Facebook. I thought it was worth sharing.   UNEMPLOYED GRADUATE An unemployed graduate woke up one morning and checked his pocket. All … Continue reading

Grace & Mercy

I received an e-mail this afternoon from my aunt. It contained this little story. I’m not one for passing on messages that say “you’ll be blessed if…” or “you’ll have luck if…” I believe I am blessed already and don’t believe in luck. But I did find that I loved the story and thought it … Continue reading

Getting My Heart Right

After much consideration and knowing what this Love Dare journey requires, I’ve decided to go back a few days. I very quickly lost focus on the goal. My heart is no longer in it like it was.

"Love Dare" Journey Begins

Tomorrow is the day I begin this journey to hopefully rekindle the love between my husband and me. Now, don’t get me wrong. We still love each other, but I’m praying for us to fall in love again. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt that way. I’m sure it’s the same for him. … Continue reading

Our First Day of School…

September 14, 2009 Sitting here tonight reflecting on the event of the day… My little girl had her first day of school. I can’t believe how quickly time flies. Yes, it’s only Pre-K, but still. She’s my first baby. I was so excited to wake her this morning. 6:30a I kissed her and sung her … Continue reading

Let Us Remember…

Let us take a moment to remember all those lost on Sept. 11th. Not to be captivated by the sadness of that day, but to appreciate the selflessness of those who gave their lives to save a stranger. Say a prayer for the families who grieve their loses, yet continue to press on.  Let us … Continue reading
