Pick up your bat

Kids are so cute and precious, and does some of the weirdest things, which I’m sure most would have no argument with that. When my nieces and nephew played softball/baseball, I attended mostly all of their games, to show my support, and because I enjoyed the sport. I can remember many days passing the “Tee-ball”Continue reading “Pick up your bat”

Mayday

In the 1920s, the term Mayday originated and was first used by Frederick Stanley Mackford, a radio officer for London’s Croydon Airport. Its origin is French for M’aidez, which translates to help.

Stay in the womb

I’m not a mother (yet), but I know that once conception is established, a typical pregnancy takes 40 weeks for an embryo to fully develop into a fetus.

Trust me, I know

I know it’s hard living, especially when you don’t have the means too. I know it’s hard to trust God, especially when things have gone from bad to worse. I know it’s hard to have hope, especially when things aren’t getting any better. I know it’s hard to keep yourself uplifted, especially when the weightContinue reading “Trust me, I know”

In need of answers

You know, a lot of times, when we are experiencing life altering situations or difficulty, our first instinct is to question why. Usually, tears, anger, and resentment follows. We can’t understand how a God who proclaims to love us, and is able to do everything exceedingly and abundantly more than we could have ever hopedContinue reading “In need of answers”
