It ends good

Last week I was in the kitchen preparing my lunch, when I heard God say to me, “It ends good.” For the first time in a very long time, I didn’t question Him or have any skepticism. He continued, “When people ask you how you can smile in the midst of your struggles, tell them,Continue reading “It ends good”

The ugly side

The promise is always better than the process. It may take you awhile to get to it, but eventually you will. I used to side eye people who professed the patience and joy they had, as they awaited the birth of a new season. For them, waiting was “easy” and they did it without complaints,Continue reading “The ugly side”

Hidden until the perfect time

Do you know who you are? Are you mad because others don’t? Are you still struggling to be seen? Have you done great and wonderful things, only for it all to go unnoticed? You’re amped up, hype and excited for the phase in your life, because now couldn’t be a better time, so you believe.Continue reading “Hidden until the perfect time”

A little bit goes a long way

Every now and then, I’ll meander into the kitchen, and 30 minutes later, I’m cooking. Before you ask for a plate, there’s nothing unique, elaborate, or special even, about my meals, partly because I don’t know how to cook. I’ll admit, it’s fun to try, but I don’t necessarily want to make a habit ofContinue reading “A little bit goes a long way”

I didn’t forget

I’m often asked, “Where does your notes come from?” To which I always reply, “God.” I’m not saying that for points, to be cliché, or viewed as impressive, but it’s the truth. When I sit down to write, I have no idea what I’m going to say, until God releases it to me. I justContinue reading “I didn’t forget”

Listen to your heart

We’ve all heard the expression, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste”, but following it can get you in trouble at times. A year and some change ago (if you’re from the south like me, you’ll know the meaning of that metaphor), I befriended a guy, that I really should’ve looked the other wayContinue reading “Listen to your heart”

Waitlisted

My oldest sister loves luxury, designer, high-end, high-quality things. While she is not materialistic, she is a woman who gets what she wants, especially if she has the means to do so. For quite some time, I’ve known she’s wanted a particular luxury purse. As a result of it being in high demand, she hasn’tContinue reading “Waitlisted”

I remember

Tomorrow is 9/11, and I remember it as if it happened on yesterday. I remember exactly where I was, when we we’re under attack. I remember all the horrific and bloody images that scrolled across the television screen. I remember the alarming number of deaths, and people that not only lost their lives in theContinue reading “I remember”

One more fight

I know a young lady who’s had trouble to follow her all the days of her life. While most of it stems from her childhood, her adult years hasn’t been that great either. Although she’s had moments of joy and laughter, now there appears to be no happiness at all. Every time I see her,Continue reading “One more fight”

Clear the way

I have a 7-year-old niece who thoroughly enjoys hitting flips. Whether she’s flipping across the floor, on me, or from sofa to sofa, she is quite the acrobat. Whenever I’d yell for her to “stop flipping or you’ll hurt yourself,” she always replies, “I’m a gymnasts. It’s what I’m supposed to do.” Granted she doesContinue reading “Clear the way”
