30 Day’s of Restraint…

30 Day’s of Restraint…

As I get older I find it harder and harder to shed my winter weight. I remember when I was younger I would simply work out for a couples days and I could slide right back into my summer dresses with no problem. Well, those days are far behind me and the struggle now begins […]

Give Yourself Permission to Relax!

Give Yourself Permission to Relax!

Life can become so busy we simply forget to give ourselves permission to relax, stop, or sit down in the midst of the madness. How do we not lose ourselves when surrounded by obligations, responsibilities, work, school, ministry, children, family, goals, marriage, loss, love and life? We are pulled in so many different directions that […]

Underneath the Mask of Winter, Is Spring…

Underneath the Mask of Winter, Is Spring…

Every year I promise myself, this time, I will adjust to winter much better this year. However,  every year it gets harder and harder to endure the winds, cold, rain, sleet, and snow –no matter how many cute outfits I put together. Winter can be harsh, but when I saw the sun peek her face […]

Am I My Brother’s Keeper?

Am I My Brother’s Keeper?

“Now Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let’s go out to the fields. And while they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him. Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?” ” I don’t know,” he replied. ” Am I my brother’s keeper?” ( Genesis 4:8 & […]

Sweets For The Sweet

Sweets For The Sweet

For the last two years I have had various dreams about cakes, cupcakes, wedding cakes and birthday cakes. Gosh, I know this sounds bizarre, but nonetheless I continued to have the dream. In one particular dream, I remember walking down the street and I saw a pastry shop. I stood at the threshold trying to […]

Being Thankful…

Being Thankful…

“I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service” (1 Timothy 1:12). I marvel at the heart posture of Saint Paul when writing a letter to young Timothy who is in need of guidance as he leads and pastors a new church. At […]

Adjusting To A Season Of Change…

Adjusting To A Season Of Change…

“The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt, placed their cloaks on them, and Jesus sat on them. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead […]

The Superhero

The Superhero

These days many lovers of comic book figures rush to the movies in order to frequent yet another Superman or Spiderman sequel, Iron-man or X-men sequel, Wolverine or the most recently eye-popping and box-office drawing Wonder Woman–soon to be a sequel. As I’ve observed these movies I noticed how we’re initially introduced to what seems […]

Where Are Your Feet Taking You?

Where Are Your Feet Taking You?

As the summer seems to come to a close (at least here where I reside) I can’t help but think of the emphasis that I’ve placed on my feet. The only time they become an accessory is in the summertime after finding the prettiest bubblegum shades of polish, to compliment my chocolate skin tone. The […]

The Mirror Has Two Faces…

The Mirror Has Two Faces…

“Then Jacob put his children and his wives on camels, and he drove all his livestock ahead of him, along with all the goods  he had accumulated in Paddan Aram, to go to his father Isaac in the land of Canaan. When Laban had gone to shear his sheep, Rachel stole her father’s household gods. […]

Something New…

Something New…

Change is so difficult, but in order to find the light we must risk the darkness with God. There are often many reasons why the masses never experience prosperity or reach the Promised Land, let alone dwell there. It boils down to fear and while we cling to how it was and how it used […]

The Encounter

The Encounter

“Now when Joshua was near Jericho he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, “Are you for us or for our enemies?” “Neither,” he replied, “but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now […]

Springs of Living Water…

Springs of Living Water…

(“For the lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes” Rev 7:17). Many times humanity is under the assumption that after Jesus ascended to his father he is simply sitting in a chair […]

What is Church to You?

What is Church to You?

This brings me to an experience I had as I attended a very small church in Orlando, Florida several years ago. I have always been open to any size church; my only condition was that I needed to feel moved in my heart through the Word of God, I needed my spiritual food. As I […]

Pregnant with Promise and Waiting…

Pregnant with Promise and Waiting…

“When his time of service was completed, he returned home. After this his wife Elizabeth became pregnant and for five months remained in seclusion. “The Lord has done this for me,” she said. “In these days he has shown his favor and taken away my disgrace among the people.” In the sixth month, God sent […]

It is not what’s on the outside that matters most…

It is not what’s on the outside that matters most…

It is so hard being a woman, because from the top of our heads to the bottom of our feet there seems to always be something to do. If I am not shaving my legs, I am doing my hair and if I am not putting on make-up I am picking out an outfit. Honestly, […]

Are You Watching The Signs?

Are You Watching The Signs?

“After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him” (Matt 2:1 & 2). “After they had […]

Friendship, How Sweet It Is…

Friendship, How Sweet It Is…

I had the pleasure of hanging out with one of my friends from high school. I couldn’t believe how much we had in common twenty years later. Where did the time go, and what have I been doing with it? That is another post, but for this one I want to talk about friendships. As […]
