My Words and Thoughts

Hi Family,

So, I must share my thoughts, challenges, my crazy days , basically my life with you! That should be easy right, because I am a woman, a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a minister, a consumer, a driver, a host, an author, a writer, a speaker, a photographer,a friend, a radio show host…wow I have a lot of roles and if you take a good look at your life- so do you! I’m tired just thinking about it, but we all flow through this life with multiple roles maybe not all at one time but we definitely do them all at some point.

I love this life that God has given me with its ups and downs. Trying to figure out when to be tough with love or lovingly tough (is that the same thing?) how to be strong when my body is weak, how to be brave when I am so scared, how to stay sane in a crazy world, how to love when someone is being unlovely, how to trust God daily with my entire life!  When I was younger I didn’t really think on these things, now that I’m 50+ I  think about them everyday! My family says I examine too much, maybe that’s the journalist in me, but a life not examined is a life not worth living (Socrates paraphrased).

My words and thoughts are mine, just for your entertainment, so if they don’t mesh with your spirit, take them with a grain of salt, after all, they are mine!

Talk Soon! Blessings!

Can Music Soothe Our Souls?

As our nation focuses on the flag and the symbol of hatred it represents, the Black community must not forget about the violence and senseless murders that top the first 20 minutes of the news every day! Every one of us has a circle of influence, whether you’re a corporate soldier, an entrepreneur warrior or a stay at home mom/dad-How do we make an impact on the lives of our people?  So I asked the question, “How has music impacted our community?” Songs like “Respect Yourself” by the Staple Singers, “What’s Going On?” by Marvin Gaye, “Say it Loud, I’m Black & I’m Proud” by James Brown, even Stevie Wonder’s hit “Living for the City”…there are so many more I could list.  I remember all of these and how it made me feel to sing them as a girl, but as a mature woman today, I ask, “is there music that speaks to our situation today?” That makes us think and want to change and move and love in our community?  That makes us say “Enough is Enough- It’s Time to Rise Up” . What’s the song that makes you “rise up” in some way? I love this new song from Rabbit! Enjoy!

Congrats! Fantasia Gets Marries!

Fantasia and New Hubby! Fantasia marries her king- Kendall Taylor! She is radiating beauty, love and happiness! In her posts, she is thanking everyone especially God for bringing him into her life, but there are six words that caught my heart! They are “God did not forget about me”. I’m sure like me, some of you have felt from time to time that God put you on a shelf and forgot about you. All of those trials, struggles and painful situations came to make us strong and build our faith! Like Fantasia, we all go through, have been through or going through some thing right now,  but we know that “God’s Grace is sufficient for us, for His power is Made perfect in our weakness. That grace that is unmerited (we don’t deserve it) unbridled (all-powerful), unlimited ( sufficient). Circumstances in life can kick our butts or build muscle, it can move us away from God or bring us closer to Him. We must know that God Never Forgets His Children, when there’s no movement,Read your Bible, Pray and stand strong in the Faith. God Bless our Struggles! LOL!     Congrats Tasia!
