This Blog is dedicated to my two sorors

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

As I type this tribute to the both of you, I am holding back the tears... Phillipians 4:13 states, through Christ ALL things are possible.

I look at the before and after photos of the two of you and smile.

Look at where you started and where God has brought you. This has not been an easy journey for any of us...but the two of you have continued to press and persevere inspite of personal set backs, work drama, MAN DRAMA (AMEN) and just life in general....but you're still standing and standing FABULOUSLY I MIGHT ADD. This speaks to the power of your faith and perserverance. So I salute the both of you: my sisters in Christ, my Sorority sisters, my friends!!!

I love you both and I am giving your your flowers while you can still smell them....

    So awesome soror. I am so touched by the love of sisterhood. However, it is more than that, it is a deep respect for each other's journey and the pitfalls of said journey. I am so inspired by all of you and am grateful that we have more in common than the color of our skin; we have the P&G also!

Skee ~ Wee Sorors emoticon

I Wish That I Could Have This Moment for LIFE

Monday, April 11, 2011

I’ve never been a huge Nick Minaj fan (I think she’s beautiful and has a killer body, but just not my thing). Now I LOVESSSS me some DRAKE….I have two teenagers, so I have become acquainted with songs that I normally would not listen to. Anyone who knows me will tell you I’m a dancer…I’m the friend who leaves their handbag with you all night at the club, because I am on the floor. A funky beat will get me going every time, but as a Christian I realize the importance of the lyrics and what I am taking into my spirit. So if I like the song, I Google the lyrics.

Moment for life, the more I listen the song the more I started thinking about life and how precious it really is. We are often told not to “live in the moment”, but what else do you have. The bible tells us in Matthew 6:34 - Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day [is] the evil thereof. So that tells me maybe Nicki and Drake are really on to something… There is one particular verse that I could not shake – “Everybody dies, but not everybody lives.”

I have been blessed to do a lot of traveling since my divorce in 09 but, with every trip, I am faced with our vulnerability as humans and just how quickly life can be taken from us. Just coming back from Spring Break last week, I drove past two fatalities...Those people thought they had tomorrow…No man knows the day nor the hour that his life will be required of him…So I took from that to start LIVING!! Not planning to live, not preparing to live, but living right now…This is my moment!!!!

    Yes indeed, life is but a mist. I am really learning that, especially as I have hit the BIG 40 this year. I realize that so many people in my life are experiencing devastating illnesses and death. That makes me want to work even harder to please God and to be the woman that HE wants me to be RIGHT NOW. Thanks for the reminder soror emoticon

    Great Blog! Life is Precious. Peace is Wonderful. I have learned to be thankful each day I have these two things. Going through my divorce, I have a new philosophy. I'm learning contentment; looking at what I have, rather than, the things I've lost. This Blog really hits home for me!! May you continue to Blessed emoticon

Peachtree Road Race Lottery!!!

Thursday, March 17, 2011

I signed up for the Peachtree Road Race!! This race has become so popular that if you miss the initial sign up in January, you have to register for the LOTTERY and be selected in order to participate. emoticon emoticon

This is year, not only do I want to get FIT, I want to give back...So I will be doing the LUPUS walk in April, The Susan G - 1 day and I am trying to find a team for the 3-DAY in October!!

I am blessed in so many ways. I have my health, my strength, beautiful children, supportive friends and family. And when it's all said and done I want to know that I did my part (even if it's only a small part) in being blessing to someone else!!

Let the RACES begin!!!!

    I have really been on the Do-Good kick hence my "Feed" on my Spark-page today. I finished reading the book of Matthew last night and have been considering why I am here from God's perspective. "What can I tell him I've done?"
Your Blog made me think of this famous quote from Mother Teresa.
"People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."
— Mother Teresa
