A friend and I reconnected recently. She stopped by for a quick visit and to drop off a meal. Of course, we had to talk because that’s what we do. We’re women. After sharing what’s going on with us, we usually end up encouraging one another. In the midst of our chat she said, “Oh, … Continue reading Light
Occasionally I write a post and later think I should have included another word or thought. There are so many directions I could choose to go in. So, when I think of the Bible and it's importance in the plan of God, I am just in awe. God used men inspired by Holy Spirit to … Continue reading Unnamed
With friends like that, who needs enemies?That was my thought as I watched a video of a teenage girl being pushed off a bridge to tumble about 60 feet to the water below. Moulton Falls is a popular place where people often go to jump, ignoring the “No Jumping” signs. The young lady was quoted … Continue reading Who’s Got Your Back?
You probably can't tell it now, but during a particular rough season of my life, I was less than happy with my circumstances, and my skewed thinking wouldn’t even allow me to accept the support of a friend or believe the kind words people said to me. Are you one of those people who finds it difficult … Continue reading A Time to Receive

I’ve had to do it in line for a car tag. I’ve had to do it at the restaurant. I’ve had to do it in the hair salon and I’ve even had to do it to get in church. What’d I have to do? Wait. That’s right, the twiddling-your-thumbs, tapping-your-fingers kind of waiting. I don’t … Continue reading I Will Wait on the Lord
God loves you so much. He has already taken the time to design a specific path and destiny for your life. Even as I release these words, I feel an excitement for what the Lord desires to do in your life. You see, you have been created for greatness. There is something so unique and … Continue reading A Word for Destiny
Who would have thought that TV star Kim Kardashian West and President Donald J. Trump would be a likely pair to usher in grace for a 63 year old, African-American woman who called prison home. Not me. I don’t know either of them personally, but it’s important that we not make judgements and put people … Continue reading See Something. Do Something.
I love to see friends and family outside having plain old fun. Summertime is like a welcome mat for reunions and festivals with vendors, barbecues, and inflatable bounce houses for the kids. This summer several people participated in Juneteenth celebrations. Across the country, these people had a high time commemorating General Gordon Granger’s announcement in … Continue reading Summertime
It was bedtime. The moonlight cast a shadow of the bare tree limbs on the window pane. The wind caused the shadow to move ever so slightly. It seems logical now, but for a little girl in a dark room, it was a mystery in the making. I was just a child and the last … Continue reading Stand Your Ground
