Informational Tuesday

Good morning Friend,
Grace and peace be unto you!

Change only comes when you open your mind to the possibilities that the inconvenient things that are happening in your life are producing transformation. See, you and I want change, but we only want it when it is easy. This change that we are seeking will take some WORK. Don't fall for the Okie Doke. There is no quick fix to get you to that place called change.

Until tomorrow #liveBlessed

Monday Motivation

Good morning friend.
Grace and peace be unto you!

Today is the time they commemorate Columbus Day (how do you discovery something with inhabitants?) In that spirit, today I want you to make a discovery of your own. What makes you excited to be alive? When you discover this it will make it easier to say NO to things that don't. Everywhere I go people are always talking about how busy they are. Sis, you are only as busy as you think you are. Busy is a state of mind and an excuse to keep people at bae. My challenge to you is to figure out what makes your heart skip a beat and discard the other stuff. It is time for you to start moving with the things that give you life not drain you. When you discover you, everyone around you will be happy. 

Until tomorrow #liveBlessed

Wednesday Word

Good morning friends,
Grace and peace be unto you!

Psalm 121 A song of ascents.
1I lift up my eyes to the hills-- where does my help come from? 2 My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.3He will not let your foot slip-- he who watches over you will not slumber; 4indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 5The LORD watches over you-- the LORD is your shade at your right hand; 6the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. 7The LORD will keep you from all harm-- he will watch over your life;8the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

I love this version of the scripture. It asks where does my help come from. It comes from the Lord. The one that made heaven and earth. The one that strung the stars in the sky and painted the earth with the waters. If he is that careful of heaven and earth how much more does he care about you that were made in his image.

The psalmist goes on to say that the Lord that created these heavens will not allow the sun or the moon to overtake you. He will be your shade. He will be your bodyguard watching over your coming and going. Wow! That right there is shouting ground. The God of the universe, your father is so concerned that he puts a detail out to watch over you. To keep you from falling.

A word of caution. Don't try to outrun your protection. I remember Michelle Obama saying that sometimes they just wanted to be regular and go to ordinary places but they were always flanked with bodyguards. She shared about a time that she and one of their daughters escaped for a time just to have fun. Nothing happened to them but the Lord just said don't try to outrun or hide from my protection. Stay in his will. It's the safest place to be. Thank you Clark Sisters.

Tuesday Transformation

Good morning Friends,
Grace and peace be unto you!

Change starts in your mind and then it radiates out. Whatever I consistently think I will act upon, and I will consistently see the manifestation of said thoughts. So, if we are going to transform our actions we have to start with our thoughts. What am I thinking about? What do I meditate on?

My mind is the laboratory for my actions. What am I cooking up in my lab today? Are they thoughts of peace and goodwill, or doom and evil? Do I see the best in my sister or am I looking for a flaw so I have something to tear her down with? Take some time to as Joyce Meyers says, think about what you are thinking about. Really begin to analyze your thought life and see what is being produced out of it. If you don't like what is coming out then you have to do something about what is going in.

Monday Motivation

Good morning Friends,
Grace and peace be unto you!

It is a very cold day in KAKE land. LOL, I am not ready. Yes, it is cold and I still need to cut my grass. People question global warming because...?  Anyway, that is not what we are here to talk about today.

Here is a little motivation for your tired soul. Don't put off for tomorrow what you should be doing today. Stop. Before you say, "But I'm so busy". You are as busy as what you say and what you prioritize. I would say that I live a pretty densely packed life. Some by choice and some because I am still learning the art of NO. However, I get in the things that are important to me. So, that means that sometimes I might marking going on facebook (mainly so it sends me a reminder) and I might not come. My nonattendance is not because the event was not important but because there was something that took precedence at the moment. As women, we come to those moments in our lives where you know I need to be right here, right now, to be a blessing and to receive one. By all means, have and keep your schedule but do not be a slave to it. Yes, by all means, be that dependable person that your integrity is calling you to be. By all means, be a person of your word, but do not become such a slave to your calendar and being there for everyone that you lose you.

YOU must manage self with everything you have within you! Yes, it is cool for your kids to be active and involved in sports but sometimes they need to just sit down somewhere and so do you. So, back to don't put off for tomorrow what you should do today. Take the time to talk to a friend, to write a letter, to take a walk, or something else that simply feeds your spirit. Everything thing in our world is moving at rapid speed, but I encourage you to slow down and notice your environment. The beauty in nature and the awesome wonder that is the smile of a little baby. Somethings just need to happen today. Life is so short don't miss an opportunity under the guiles of I am busy.

Until tomorrow #liveBlessed

Friday focus

Good morning friends.
Grace and peace be unto you!

It is so easy to lose focus when your world is chaotic. Take some time this weekend to get organized.
I bought new shoe bins to organize (hide) my shoes. Feel like Christmas when a pair of shoes I haven't seen in awhile pop out from under the bed. Lol

I don't know about you but it is time for me to thin my closet. Any clothes that I did not wear this summer can go. If I was going to wear them I would have. Let it go. Make space. Some of you said space for what? Make space for space. To get focused you need space that is uncluttered. Sometimes we develop a hoarder mentality. More doesn't always equal greater. Sometimes it equals cluttered.
See how much better you sleep and how much fresher your house smells when the clutter is eliminated. Try it and let me know how it helps.

Till Monday #liveBlessed

Wednesday Word

Good morning friends,
Grace and peace be unto you!

An angry person stirs up conflict, and a hot-tempered person commits many sins. Proverbs 29:22 NIV

This scripture doesn't need a lot of commentaries written about it. I think we see this on every cop show that has ever been aired. When people lose their temper things go bad.

Today, I want you to evaluate the things that are going on around you. Are you the anger that is stirring the pot. Does your rage, mistrust, and self-loathing bring the kindling needed to bring the fires you are seeing?  If we are honest everybody is not just picking on you. There is something that you have chosen to hold on to that people are either attracted or repelled from inside of you.

This new month is a good time to empty out all of the old stale stagnant stuff we've been holding on to. Go into the fall season lighter and weight free. It might help you make better Christmas shopping decisions. When you're free you don't have to shop out of guilt. Get free and stay free.

Until tomorrow
