Time savings . . .

I’ve heard people say (and even I have said), “I don’t have enough time.”  However, we all have the same amount of time each week e.g. 1 week, 7 days, 168 hours, 10,080 minutes, or 604,800 seconds.  I can’t put my finger on the specific day.  However, one day I realized that I needed to … Continue reading

God answers prayer!

I have been taking a class on prayer, Women of Travail, at the Temple of Praise church. To say that it has been a powerful blessing would be an understatement. I’ve moved from event based praying e.g. when I’m in need, right before eating, communal prayer etc. to praying every day multiple times during the … Continue reading

I can see why most people wouldn’t consider Kirk Franklin gospel.

I will never forget one of the first times that I heard a Kirk Franklin song.  I was in a club of all places in Portland, Oregon.  I will raise my hand and confess that what I was doing could have been in the movie Dirty Dancing.  My friend Frank came over and hit my … Continue reading

I know that God is laughing at me.

It has been a long time since I had a home church.  The last church that I belonged to was First Institutional Baptist Church in Phoenix, Arizona.  By the way, I left Phoenix in December 2003 and today is February 7, 2012.  Yes, it has been a loooooong time.  It was even to the point … Continue reading

Who knew that my table would be in trouble . . .

At the new member’s dinner at church last night, I blame Y., K., C. and Ms. V. for our table getting in trouble.  We were called out by the M.C. Brother McPherson for being the loud table.  Pastor shook his head as he tried to come to our table to introduce himself but was unable … Continue reading

Sunday, November 20th (It’s the end of Solemn Assembly.)

Well, I made it.  There were times that it wasn’t pretty denying my flesh.  But, I did it.  I’m appreciative of this past week.  It’s allowed me to see areas of my life that I need to tweak.  It’s open my eyes to the possibilities of listening to NPR (National Public Radio).  Also, I may … Continue reading

Saturday, November 19, 2011 (The 23rd hour . . . )

Last night was a weird night from a sleep perspective.  It was my turn to work the late shift Friday night e.g. 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.  Each team takes 1 Friday night to man the phone from 5 to 7 p.m. every 5 weeks.  As a result, 1 member of the team arrives late … Continue reading

The devil is a L-I-A-R!

Friday, November 18, 2011 Here I am sitting in the recliner endeavoring to check my email when I log into Gmail and what do I see? A dag um advertisement for Kettle chips!!! I don’t be-lieve this!!! I’m definitely going to be researching temptations, mulling over focusing on God, and literally digging into the scriptures … Continue reading

Love don’t live here for my friend any more!!!!

I blame by BFFL, my sister from another mother, my friend to the end and my future assistant living roommate, Nandra Ruth Ramnarine.  Why you ask?  Well, when Nandra came to visit me back at the beginning of November, I took her by one of my favorite grocery stores here in Indiana, Fresh Market.  Nandra … Continue reading

What will it take to get h*ll, d*mn, sh*t, and other profanity off of my everyday vocabulary?

It was Day 3 of Solemn Assembly and I was endeavoring to put a kibosh on the profanity.  I could say that I’m my father’s daughter being that dad was a poet of creative profanity. Or, I could say that I’m my mother’s daughter being that Mom when angry would light the curse stick. But, … Continue reading
