Transformation Tuesday

Good morning,
Grace and Peace be unto you!

So if transformation is more than skills, resources, and technology, it's your habits.

What habits have you formed and are those habits moving you to your destiny? Brothers and sisters we have too many habitual things in our lives that produce nothing in our lives. We wonder why we are always tired and drained. It is simply that the habitual things in our lives that are not producing are draining. 

One year my husband and I were out buying tomato plants and we saw one with a good sized tomato on it and decided to buy it. In our mind it was steady producing so it must be good. When we got to the line to pay an old farmer said take that tomato on there off so the plant will grow strong and tall. We were both confused. He said all of the energy is going into growing that one tomato right now, which is cool cause it's planted but you want the whole plant to grow. 

Those bad habits are robbing your destiny and keeping it from growing.

And as always remember to. . . live Blessed!

Thankful Thursday

Good morning,
Grace and Peace be unto you!

It is so easy to be negative in our country, these days but I challenge us to find things to be thankful for.

Everything in our lives might not be peaches and cream but could be worse. Because of our constant negative news cycle, negative is not hard. The POSITIVE has to override everything else.

Searching for the positive will get our minds focused and push out everything else. What are you looking for?

Wednesday Word

Good morning,
Grace and Peace be unto you!

The wise will hear and increase their learning, And the person of understanding will acquire wise counsel and the skill [to steer his course wisely and lead others to the truth], - Proverbs 1:5 AMP

Today's word admonishes us to acquire wise counsel. Just because person is chronologically yiur senior does not always make them wise. It says seek wise not old counsel. This wise counsel will help to steer your course so that you and I can get to the thing most of us don't want to hear. Truth.

Truth can sometimes hurt but it is the only way we can increase learning and straighten our course. Even painful truth is much more acceptable when it come from someone we respect and have relationship with. Nonetheless it is important for us to get to the truth and allow it to cleanse our hearts and minds.

None of us are on an island alone.  There generally, is  nothing that you are going through today,that God won't send someone who experienced the same to help you through. Accept the coaching and guidance so that you come out as more than a conqueror. I don't know about you but I like to know what I am supposed to learn from the lesson cause I don't like repeats.

Be blessed today. Find a wise counselor that can speak works of life, love and truth to you today.

And as always remember to. . . live Blessed

Transformation Tuesday

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you !

Transformation a thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance. How have you transformed in 2017?

The interesting thing about this definition is it doesn't tells us which way the change occurs, positive or negative, just that a change occured. So as we come to the last 69 days of this year let's evaluate our level transformation.

Where the areas that need to realigned? What do I need to add or take away to create the stability needed to move forward. It is so easy to get and stay comfortable but we can get so comfortable that we are stuck it the chair of I'll get to that.

Yes that's right. There are only 69 days before we walk into the year of new beginnings. Just like that caterpillar changes to that beautiful butterfly you and I must go through the metamorphic process to begin to express the person that God has on the inside.

Monday Motivation

Good morning, 
Grace and peace be unto you!

At this time of year, so many of us start to think about setting goals for the new year. This is a very natural way to end one year and begin the new. One of the biggest hindrances to our progress is that we get sidetracked by the time it takes to accomplish our goals. 

I can remember when I was going to school with two small children my husband would tell me every day that I was one day closer to graduation. While it was true there were many days that it felt like I was swimming upstream. 

My sisters, I just want you to know that you too are one day closer to your goal. While it may seem a distance nothing worth getting comes too easy. Keep pushing to your goal (grab opportunities at last)

Thursday Thoughts

Good morning,
Grace and Peace be unto you!

As I sat in a session yesterday on race and the social determinate of health, I realized that as far as we have come we still have a long way to go.

It is totally shameful for brown neighborhoods to be so devoid of basics needs specifically healthy food, safety and quality housing. These are just for the stresses that continue to make black babies born at lower birth weights and bet against them that they won't make it to age 1.

We have got to do a few things to chance our story. 
•learn to de stress
•learn and utilize the resources that are available
•Use contraception to babies are not being produced in situations where they are not wanted
•reduce cortisol in our belly
Just a few but powerful things to move forward.

Focused Friday

Goodmorning,
Grace and Peace be unto you!

Have you ever noticed that your front windshield is larger than the rearview mirror? Focus on what's ahead not what's behind.

That is shouting ground for someone today. Stop looking back to the past when there is so much future.

Why do we look back? It's comfortable,  familiar, predictable, and habitual. If you are going to receive all that you have been called to have you have to let it go.
I know that sounds hard but you can't get new when you are filled to capacity with the old. 

Take some time to pray and truly ask God what are things and who are the people that I need to release before I go into my new year. No bad associations or communication will spring forth from me. Moving toward a place of peace and tranquility. Go with me. Have a phenomenal weekend.

And as always remember to. . . live Blessed!


Wednesday Word

Good morning,
Grace and Peace be unto you!

I Thessalonians 5
17 Pray without ceasing.
18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Wow Paul is giving the church a very tall order. Pray without ceasing. I don't know about you but there have been seasons of my life where praying an hour seemed like a life time and he is saying pray without ceasing. What?

Relax my sisters. Yes you need to have a specifically devoted time to talk to God but praying without ceasing is a little different. It is the prayer that you should have rolling over and over in your spirit all day. The prayer that leads and guides you into all truth. The pray that makes you avoid the pitfalls of the day because your in tune with the spirit.

When you have been in his presence and have received guidance all day it's not hard to give thanks. When I have been with Jesus even circumstances that don't always look good can be thanks worthy. For example,  I didn't want to loose my job but it got me a better one and God knows I would not have left on my own.
Seemly a bad situation that was thanks worth.

It's not always easy but if we can begin to refrain our situations with thankfulness it will change our outlook and attitude in which we go through life.

And as always remember to. . . live Blessed!

Transformation Tuesday

Good morning
Grace and peace be unto you!

Transforming our lives this Tuesday.
What are you doing to attract the success you want? Success is not going to come grab you, you have to grab it. 

The question is, how bad do you want it? Enough to stop partying and start studying?  Enough to stop being a consumer and not a saver? 

My sister, success looks different for every person so you need to take the time to truly define success for you. Don't let anyone define it for you otherwise you spend years chasing stuff that was never yours.

Monday Motivation

Good morning,
Grace and Peace be unto you!

Today's motivation. Keep your face to the sunshine. Too often we are so caught up in the grind that we don't take the time to just sit and let the sun, shine on our face and renew us.

Our society is vitamin D deficient and much of that is because we don't go outside and absorb the rays of the sun. Recently I was sick and barely been able to get out of the bed. However, my little fur bundle Bella needed to go out. So, I drug my achy body down the stairs and to the patio door. While there I felt the warmth of the sun and decided to sit outside for a while. To my surprise, I began to feel some strength in my body and was renewed during this time. If I had not experienced I would not have believed.

Ladies, I just encourage you to get out of your office or home and take some time to let the sun, shine on your face.

And as always remember to ... live Blessed

Good morning
Grace and peace be unto you!

October is SIDS awareness month. Do you know of an expectant mom or one that has just delivered? Do they know about safe sleep for their baby? Have you heard of sids?

Sudden infant death syndrome is defined as the sudden, unexpected death of an infant younger than 1 year of age. It typically occurs associated with a period of sleep. SIDS is rare during the first month of life. Risk peaks in infants 2-4 months of age and then declines.

Sedgwick county has one of the highest cases of infant mortality in the country. African American babies are dying at an alarming rate. We must stop co-sleeping and putting our babies in situation that may cause them to suffocate.

Make sure that your baby is on their back. That the crib is free and clear of everything but them. No blankets, pillows, bumper pads, or other people. You have to be your child's biggest advocate. Go to the link below for more answers about SIDS.

Thankful Thursday

Good morning
Grace and peace be unto you!

On this Thankful Thursday the lyrics to this song came to me.

I am Grateful for the things That you have done Yes, I'm grateful for the victories we've won I could go on and on and on About you works Because I'm grateful, grateful, so grateful Just to praise you Lord Flowing from my heart Are the issues of my heart It's gratefulness.

As we look at all of the things that are happening all around us we just have to stop and say thank you Lord. Everything might not be the way want it but it could be way worse.  If we will get into a mind of thankfulness versus complaining our whole attitude will turn around.

What are you thankful for?

Wednesday Word

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

Today is Wednesday Word and this is the scripture that God laid on my heart.

Joshua 1:3-6King James Version (KJV) 3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.

So my question today is are you claiming territory or are you just marking time? See in the military that have a command that is mark time mark, which just basically means march in place. You are not going anywhere but you are marching.

Too often people in the body of Christ are going through the motions. Looking deep and keeping up with calesthentics workout and just be marking time.

In this last quarter of 2017 it is time to start claiming territory. That means you will have to break out of your comfort zone and walk in some unfamiliar territory. Sisters don't settle for the okie doke. You deserve all that God has destined for your life.

Watch for me today. I will go live during lunch.

And as always remember to. . . live Blessed

Who are you inspiring to be their very best? Sisters it is up to us to be our sisters biggest cheerleader.

Too often I see young ladies questioning why women tear each other down and my response is that we are not taught to celebrate each other.

That being said find a sister this week and uplift her. Give her a genuine compliment. Tell a young one how intelligent and brilliant they are. We have to be intentional about our efforts.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It is up to us as the adults to think about the mental health of our kiddos during abuse.

Eventhough you may not be aware of the fact that your kids know. They feel the friction in the air even if they can't put it in words.

It's easy for someone on the outside to say get out but it is not always that easy. However, consider the lessons you are teaching your kids about how to treat you and how they should be treated. Nobody deserves to be abused!

Wednesday Word

Good morning.
Grace and peace be unto you!

Today is Wednesday Word.  John 15:13 says, Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.
Isn't it interesting that we throw around that term friend so loosely these days. Everyone is not our friend but what happens in critics?
Just a few days ago we saw people lay down their lives for others. There were countless accounts of men stepping into place to protect the women and children. Men that were push women over the barracades to safety. Others that laid there bodies over other while the shots rang out.
This was a dislay of genuine love for humanity. I don't know you but I love you enough that I want you safe. Everytime you want to give up on humanity God allows us to see that deep down there some people that still hear his voice.
The challenge to each of us is how are we going to continue to show genuine  agape love to people now that the shock is wearing off? Are we going to override the Holy Spirit when it tells us to move or are we going to just keep on walking? Every situation is a test. Will we pass or fail?  If we fail are we ready for the test again? Every failed test in life comes back eventually. Show the love of Jesus to all.

Good morning ladies, I'm back.
Today we are going to talk about Breast Cancer. Yes, I know this is a scary thought  but you know that I always say that what you don't know can kill you.

Ladies, first you have to know your body. Don't dismiss when you feel different for whatever reason. It is better to see your doctor too much then allow something go.
Next, make sure that you know what your normal breast feel like. This will help you know if they change in any way.

Finally, if you feel different and have a change in the breast size or weight see you doctor right away. If it is caught early you can be saved.

Ladies love your boobs.
