A Celebration for the Woman!

Hello Beautiful,

Today is our day to celebrate each other! The strength we carry, the courage we carry, the nurturing spirit we carry, and our whole feminine being. When I think about the role we carry in society, I think about our unique spirit and gifts we bring to humanity. Grace, appeal, support, and desire to be more than enough. One of my favorite songs to express the celebration of women is, “I’m Every Woman,” written by Ashford and Valerie Simpson because it tells the essence of how we are in so many ways. We have a super power and a super anointing and when we tap into what we are called to do, we have the ability to make some major World Changing moves.

I know, sometimes it’s not always easy. Trust, I too have been there. You desire to make those World Changing moves but just don’t know how to fully pull out your strength. But, if you ever feel those birthing effects of purpose wanting to push out, there is another sister out there who will be willing to help if you ask. Together we are stronger when we uplift and teach. The things we do can do naturally!

It’s our time to continue to shine by speaking life over ourselves and those things we desire. That same tongue we speak is also the same one that can curse the fruits we desire if we speak sour. Proverbs 18:21

So, take a moment right now and speak life! You are more than welcome to speak some of my favorite affirmations and declarations :

I can do all things -Philippians 4:13
I am fearfully and wonderfully made – Psalm 139:4
I am wealthy
I am who God says I am
I deserve good things
There are still good men out there and my future husband will find me (That’s for my single ladies.. If you’re married declare your marriage is healthy and strong)

Your gifts, talents and what you speak and even think is your super power and anointing. (Trust me, I know, I love to carry this strength and help other women do the same.) As your sister and mentor, I want to celebrate you were you are now because I believe the best is yet to come for you. So, go ahead and receive it all beautiful, you deserve it!!!

Happy International Women’s Day!!!

Women ROCK!

Last week I kept hearing and reading various themes about “WOMEN”.  Whether topic focus was about how women should be treated in relationships, tips on dating/marriage, scriptures about women, and my own personal discussions with friends about the new generation of women. With this theme, I had a vision to have a social gathering with a couple of my friends to view BET’s “Black Girls Rock”. I figured such a show would fit the theme that I’ve been hearing about all this week! Read the rest of this entry

I Apologize…

Dear Friends,

Please accept my apology. Everyone has experienced their season in life because along our journey there is a time for everything. There could be a season of profit and a season of loss.  A season of emptiness and a season of population. A season of health and a season of sickness. However, through our seasons, it’s up to us to determine who, what, when, where, and how the outcome will become.  Will we trust God? Or will we lean on our own understanding?
