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”

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”

Peddling nowhere

Have you ever seen someone struggling to ride a bike up a hill, only for them to continuously roll back down? No matter how many times they tried, it seemed as if they were peddling nowhere? Had you stuck around long enough, what do you supposed happened next? They finally made it to the top,Continue reading “Peddling nowhere”

Just a step

I’ll be honest, when I started my new job four months ago, I didn’t understand what God was doing, or why He was doing it. Obviously, I knew I needed the income, and apparently the assignment too. Although my job is very draining, and mentally exhausting, I actually love what I do. I’m very sociable,Continue reading “Just a step”

Spotted in the dark

Lions have a highly developed ability to see at night. They not only move in packs, but they also move in silence. A lot of times they take their prey by surprise, because the targets don’t see them coming. Suddenly, they find themselves locked within the jaws of the lion, struggling to get free. LikeContinue reading “Spotted in the dark”

Keep at it

I went through a phase of knowing what I wanted to do, to barely wanting to do anything at all. I’d start a new adventure, only to stop after a month, because I wasn’t “seeing” what I had hoped and envisioned. I kept thinking to myself, “If you haven’t done it by now, it won’tContinue reading “Keep at it”

Cheers from within

“I love you” and “I’m so proud of you,” are probably two of the most needed phrases anyone would want to hear. No matter how big or small the accomplishment is, just the mere thought of knowing you have the love and support of others, not only feels good, but is extremely rewarding. “Somebody cares?”Continue reading “Cheers from within”

Walking in the wrong direction

“Everyone has their life mapped out,” is a pretty accurate statement to make. Whether in your teenage years or adult, you’ve always known what you wanted for yourself. Whether it was good for you or not, you still continued on, because it was what you wanted. With each passing moment, you anxiously awaited until youContinue reading “Walking in the wrong direction”

More of this and more of that

You say, “I want more money,” but are you prepared for more problems? You say, “I want to do much more at work,” but are you prepared for more responsibilities? You say “I want to be more successful,” but are you prepared to do more than what it takes to get there? You say, “IContinue reading “More of this and more of that”

Time to get off

When my sisters and I were little, our mother would often take us to Kress’, in historic downtown Montgomery, AL. Considering the fact that we were extremely poor, I looked forward to most Saturdays, because I knew where we were going. Extremely popular, Kress’ was a huge store, and one I considered to be anContinue reading “Time to get off”
