Begin Again-Angie Stone (feat. Dave Hollister)

Some of my plans for the week.

I just want God to protect me this week and find favor with me.
I plan on opening my Rosetta Stone French and studying it.
I plan on going to bed at a decent time, starting tonight.
I plan on getting rid of clothes I haven't worn in about 15 years ( about 65% of my wardrobe).
I plan on giving a friend until this Friday to decide where we're going to stay in Paris, and look for lodging for myself.
I plan on eating right the entire week. I know it's one meal at a time; my dr would be pleased with what I've eaten so far today. I just gotta keep it up.
I plan on doing at least an hour of hard cardio a day, starting today. I have a sore left shoulder and I'm staying away from weights for a while.
I plan on saying hello once a day to a stranger.

I plan on completing my short story Dark Details.

What are your plans for the week?

I'm holding on

I am so sure that God is trying to tell me something, despite a few prayers not  having been answered yet (love, and my biological family being those prayers). Based on other things that have occurred recently that have defied logic, I'm encouraged. I know that God doesn't work on our clock. I need to work on His clock. I need to be patient and let Him do what He does, because it will be the right time, if it is to even be meant to be.  
So I will wake up every morning, grateful that God woke me up, and hoping that today is the day that my other prayers are answered. If it is not, then I will still be grateful to God,

  It might be tomorrow. 
Have a blessed day!

51 yrs ago

Exactly 51 yrs ago today 21 Feb 1965, Malcolm X was shot dead as he spoke before a packed audience in New York City.

Wish I was there

"Denzel Washington and I spending the eve of Sidney Poitier's birthday in his home. Laughter, wisdom, Bahamian food and pure soul. He is the very foundation that made it possible for us to stand. What a blessing. Happy birthday Mr. Poitier."- Lenny Kravitz

Love this! It's truly because of trailblazers like Sidney Poitier, that we can....

No Weapon

Some people are not always what they appear to be. 
I keep learning the hard way. I keep being lulled into a sense of security that I discover is false ( a trap door)  when that same person who smiles at me and encourages me regularly is plotting my demise. 

But as my mom says, you will not succeed in hurting a child of God. I am a child of The most High. 

You may succeed today, but you will not succeed overall.

Watch Sonia's Lips Move

Day ONE: 10/1/00
enters Sonia,
shutting the door behind her.
She removes her full red lips
To tell me in confidence:
“I’m so glad they finally hired a
brutha here! You the only nigga that’s been in this building besides the UPS guy!
We gotta have each other’s back.
 If there is anything that you need,
please don’t hesitate to let a sista know!”
then she quickly leaves my office
after putting her lips back
where they  remained
from my first day
through to my last;

Tell Me Something Good (I'll do the same)

Things like:
  • "You do that really well."
  • "May I pray for you right now?"
  • "How are you . . . really?"
  • "What you said (or did) helped me."
  • "I was wrong."
  • "Thanks for leading/serving."
  • "Have I offended you."
  • "I appreciate the way you (fill in the blank)."
  • "What can I do to help?"
  • "Tell me about your day job, kids . . . "
  • "Please forgive me."
  • "I still love you."
  • "God is big enough to (again fill in the blank)."
  • "I'm proud of you."
  • "You're really growing, and in a good way."
  • "Please come over for dinner."
  • "I missed you."
  • "I'm so happy for you."
  • "I prayed for you today."
  • "That must be very difficult."
  • "I'll be glad to!"
  • "I forgive you."
  • "I really love you."

God, Take Control of my Steering Wheel

God, take control of my steering wheel;
I’ll get out the driver’s seat.
I haven’t been driving well on my own;
Going up and down the wrong street.

And though I have a road map,
I still can’t find my way.
God, take control of my steering wheel,
I surrender to you today.

For you

When you shed more tears than you can count and you stand up and grow with the grace of the Lord and loved ones in your life. When you realize there is no way to travel this earth alone, knowing you always have someone to look too for strength. Being put to my knees thinking I had all the answers and knowledge is a humbling experience. I believe I will stand again, trust the pain is healing, trust the love in my soul will rejuvenate me. May all those who walk along side me feel my love forever for I love all of you.

Good night!
