Not sure where to start so I will begin here…

   This past July my mother suffered a stroke. I couldnt believe it. A strong, caring, compassionate woman of God and who also loves God is being truly tested. At first I was upset. Not at God. But how this situation changed my mom. This once vivacious woman had been succumbed to a hospital bed. Her right side paralyzed. I was strong for a while and tried not to let her see me cry. That would make her upset and she too, would shed tears. I helped bathe her, get her dressed, gave medications, and cooked meals. It was hard for me seeing her like this. I could only imagine how she felt. She was actually in the situation. She was unable to move her limbs like she wanted. She was the one that was frustrated she couldnt do certain things. She has always been a busy person. I dont mean busy body but someone who gives their time, has an ear to hear, serving others, searching for ways to help someone else. I asked God why. I didnt get an immediate answer. Through the process of my mother getting progressively better, I have seen His hand on her life.
   Our trials and tribulations are not for ourselves. It is so that people may see Gods glory in the midst of it all and that they may know Jesus for who He is. This hasnt been the easiest predicament to be in but through it all I know God is in control. It is also a learning lesson for everyone we are connected to. I pray that people see my mom and know that God is real. This stroke could have easily taken her out but God didnt allow it. Its easy to complain and look at the negative but Im so thankful she is still here. Im treasuring the time I have with her.
   She is proof that God heals. And I am proof that He is a keeper. How can you say who/what God is to you unless youve been in a situation where you need him to be ________ (fill in the blank)?

His Love

     Lately I have been thinking about forgiveness. I have heard that you must forgive others that have hurt you in order for you yourself to move on. I never really thought that was actually true until I experienced it. Many of us hold on to grudges with people, myself included, while that person sleeps well at night.

     Being a Christian, I came to the realization that not forgiving is not Christ-like. I know, shocker. How can I claim to be a follower and not do what is right? Knowing to do the right thing and choosing not to is a sin. Also, how can I ask God for forgiveness if I’m not willing to forgive? I have to admit it is a process. Know better, do better. Time to move on. It’s hard but I know I cannot solely rely on myself. I need to forgive and let God handle everything else. Do I need to know all of the details of how it is going to work out? Absolutely not. But I know God is able to do it. It’s time to activate my faith.

You’re Perfect

My friend saw this video and tagged me on Facebook last week. Ever since, I have been trying to find his name and haven’t been successful until today. Trent Shelton is telling the truth and it makes SO much sense. Look up his name on Youtube to find more inspiration. A definite pick me up for Monday. Smile!

Peace&Love

Hello, hello!

 

“I don’t wanna show it and right now I don’t even know what I’m saying.”

     I remember seeing Elle Varner on the BET’s Awards in 2010. Her set was a part of their Music Matters. While not an absolute fan of the song she sang, I love Only Wanna Give It to You with J. Cole. The song was reminiscent of the 90’s. I felt like I was in the wrong decade. I didn’t think it could get any better until I heard this unique blend of what sounds like a fiddle and a dope beat. I have been listening to her album for the past week. My other favs? Not Tonight, I Don’t Care and Oh What a Night.

Peace&Love,

Monday Music

I’ve been watching season 3 of The Sing Off and I have to say I am truly amazed at the talent showcased every week. This particular week the groups had to cover a hip-hop song. This performance was so good that I had to stand up and lean with it lol! If you missed it click below to get an earful. Skip to 1:40 to see the actual performance.

Peace&Love,

“Do you ever think so far ahead?”

     I don’t know where I’ve been but Mr. Frank Ocean is definitely now downloaded on to my hard drive. I absolutely LOVE this song. There hasn’t been a time when someone felt the exact same way. I actually feel the emotion from his voice. The possibility that the person you have feelings for may not have any for you. Still, if serenaded with these lyrics, it’s nice to know that someone is thinking of you. Ooo na na na.

“I can’t stay away from you too long.”

 

One day I want my husband to feel this way about me. Men admitting their true feelings through song is not too popular in today’s society. Love can make you do some crazy things and make you come face to face with how you feel. This is a truthful love song. One of my favorites!
