Reminders from God’s Calendar

Monday night before bed, I reviewed my monthly goals. Goals are easier to chew when you take a bite each day. Say no to overindulgence, my friends. I said to myself, “When I wake up, I’m going to do this, this and this.” Gratefully, the sun rose and I had another chance to strive towardsContinue reading “Reminders from God’s Calendar”

The Spirit Virus

What ever happened to soul food? I’m not talking about the collard greens, the cornbread, the yams, or the dressing. I’m talking about the infectious, tasty conversations people use to bring to the table. Now, it seems like we as culture drink spoiled milk and vomit on others in public. Our attitudes being as tastelessContinue reading “The Spirit Virus”

Flower Gardens in My Heart

As I reflect on the month of February, it’s been a great one. The month started with intense workouts in the training facility I consistently go to. The second week I celebrated my 28th Birthday in beautiful Orlando, Florida. The week ended with a dim light dinner with 14 of my closest family and friends.Continue reading “Flower Gardens in My Heart”

God Protected 28

365 days went by. 3..2..1.. the clock struck 12:00am and I wake up 28. Where did the years go? Did I live in them or did they live me? How did my legs get so long and my confidence so strong? As I lay in a bed not my own, that of a Airbnb owner,Continue reading “God Protected 28”

Things I Found in a Hotel Room

It’s been raining all week. The cold has stuck to glass windows as the wind paired the rain to every object in sight. Some love the rain, many despise it. The ones who love the rain see the cleansing. The ones who hate it see their plans deferred or adjustments to schedules they initially didn’tContinue reading “Things I Found in a Hotel Room”

A Time to Love

*Nature’s alarm clock wakes me up* at 7:00AM and it’s my birthday. There’s a sense of anxiousness entangled with excitement as I welcome this new chapter. Page 1 or should I say Page 7? Either way, I’m ready. Four days before, I gathered my faithful family in a dimmed lit, high end restaurant to commenceContinue reading “A Time to Love”

You Seem So Far Away

When you were distant, you seemed closer Seem like you made an extra effort to be near But now that you’ve been home  I’ve been on a scavenger hunt to find your mind, your attention, your process, your vision Perhaps I’m looking for something you’re still looking for  I know what transition feels like, soContinue reading “You Seem So Far Away”

Death

Sometimes I wonder if it’s better than life Not here to witness everyday let downs and despair Death You’ve taken my friend, my grandmother, and my paw paw and my uncle Why do you come so soon Why do you come in the midst of joy Death I’m sitting on my friend’s grave Wondering ifContinue reading “Death”

What the Sun Told Me about Sacrifice 

6 months ago, I walked away from my Corporate America job. Most would consider it a “good job”, because I had great benefits, paid time off, and my own spacious office. Leading up to my departure, I struggled with working with no purpose, enthusiasm, or vision for the work I was doing. I was simplyContinue reading “What the Sun Told Me about Sacrifice “
