Find joy with those you love most this holiday season.
It’s nearly Thanksgiving and before you know it Christmas will be on the horizon. There is nothing like the holidays! Time with family, friends, good food and making lasting memories is what this time of year is for. The best thing about the holiday season is you can create a legacy of joy with loved ones. However, to enjoy the holidays to the fullest, it’s a good idea to slow down and make the most of life’s little moments. It’s in the everyday that we can find those tender moments that will stay with us long after the last ornament is boxed away. Continue reading “Growing and Glowing This Holiday Season”
First Love Yourself…
Back in the day when I was growing up, it was cool to be FLY! Fly at that time was a slang term that meant you were sharp, cool, cute and ready to take on the world. We used that word the way younger people nowadays use the world SLAY. I guess every generation has its own style of slang communication but I still use Fly from time to time.
As I’ve grown up, I’ve embraced a new acronym for the slang term FLY. Continue reading “Let’s Just Learn How to F.L.Y.”
Fresh Opportunities Create Unbridled Success!
Here we are again at the end of another year. In just under a month and a half, it will be 2019. Every year during the holiday season, we’re encouraged to love our fellow man a bit more, forgive wayward relatives and lastly, re-establish goals.
I’m of the belief that all of this indeed should be given much consideration during this time. However, more importantly, we need to master how to get it all done more purposefully. One of the things that has plagued me in the last quarter of this year is the word: FOCUS. I know we all need to be committed to something and stick with it in order to achieve anything in the marketplace. On the other hand, I needed an acronym to help me recall at a moments notice what focus meant to me. Continue reading “F.O.C.U.S.”
In 2007, I married the love of my life! He is charming, funny, a great listener, and the best friend I’ve ever had in life. We still get each other, even after eleven years of wedded bliss. It hasn’t always been easy, but somehow, we made it work. When we married that fall day, I had no idea what I was signing on for. I married my husband, but his mistress is the military. My husband has served this great country of ours for 31 years… and counting! He loves serving his country and he loves his troops.
Needless to say, his passion has taken him on multiple deployments throughout our marriage. Now deployments are much easier on me but I must admit, those earlier separations were like having a year long root canal for me. Continue reading “Surviving My Life as a Military Wife”
There was a time when I was growing up in the pentecostal/holiness sect of Christianity we were indoctrinated with the idea that certain “places” believers should never allow themselves to go. The idea of creating friendships with those who are believed to live a more carnal lifestyle supposedly “destroyed your testimony” and “compromises” your very salvation. After living most of my adult life as a believer, I simply beg to differ on this approach. This fear based teaching, that you can lose your salvation through associating with unbelievers is not scriptural. Continue reading “Let’s Become Infectious”
On Sunday, September 10, 2017, hurricane Irma ripped through the city of Jacksonville, Florida. This was a massive, category 5 hurricane at the onset and as it made landfall in Cudjoe Keys, FL it abated somewhat to a category 4 system. It worked its way north from southern Florida, tearing homes, boats and automobiles to shreds before making its’ way to where we reside in Northeast FL. I made the decision to ride this monster of a storm out at home since most of the weather reports that came in stated it should be a category 1 or even a mere tropical storm by the time it reached my city. Although its strength diminished, it was still a nasty storm. Continue reading “Shelter in the Eye of Your Storm”
The climate in America and the world is reaching a fever pitch. Confusion, hate, rioting and terrorist activity is erupting worldwide. As more subversive groups arise, people are living in fear. This demonic fear is driving even believers into making poor decisions by seeking comfort outside of Christ. In the wake of these horrendous events in which innocent people are being targeted and murdered, God is on the cusp of sending a word to the faithful. He is about to reveal His detailed message to those who have their ear to the ground; who are actively listening for His direction. Continue reading “The Prophetic Eclipse of 2017”
