Mother’s Day is a day “to express respect, honor, and love towards mothers. The day is an event to honor the contribution of mothers, acknowledge the efforts of maternal bonds and the role of mothers in our society.” Although this is the reason why mother’s day is celebrated, it can also amplify either happiness or sadness for some.

For some its a melancholy day, a day that makes you long for the chance to see your mother once more.

Some are expecting to be a mom and can’t wait to be called such a sweet name and there are those that have never known there mom. They clasp onto the memories heard by others, hanging onto their every word, embracing it as the only imaginative memory that they will ever have.

Mother’s Day, this day, it means something to all of us. Although it only lasts for one day, it can stir up so many different emotions that can leave a lasting effect of veiled memories. Whatever this day means to you, irregardless if you are able to pick up a phone and call your mom or not, know that you are loved. “As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you.” -Isaiah 66:13 This was a maternal promise that was prompted by God for Isaiah to tell Israel. That maternal comfort is the same comfort that God our father will give to us when we feel lonely and sad.

Mother’s Day recognizes the strength and resilience that it takes to carry the title. In a recent post, you can discover the many roles that mommy’s have to play.


I would like to take take an opportunity to acknowledge my mother, my friend. There are so many wonderful things I can say about my mom. Growing up and reflecting back over my life, it’s evident that it takes a strong woman to raise an even stronger woman.

There were times that I didn’t understand the decisions that my mother made, but she made them nonetheless and for the better, for her children.

My mom is an example that I can honor. She lives her life in a way that inspires me to be the same and even more for my own children. The grace that she exemplifies is a silhouette, which has given her opportunity to reflect humility and kindness. The love that my mother shows and continues to give -not only for me but for all of those around her- is a sounding demonstration of the devout woman that she is. Always placing her trust in the Lord. This God-fearing woman has been by my side with all three of my children, she prays for me, she has dried my tears, and cradled me in her arms.

I rise up and call her blessed. I rise up and call her MOM.

i say to all the mothers…..

I say to all the mothers, in whatever capacity and role you play as a mom, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! This is recognized as one national day but your love, guidance, and affection lasts a lifetime.

I am blessed and thankful to be called mom,mommy, mother, momma, mum, mumsy, and on occasion Mommmmmmmm. 💙💙💙

Make it a beautiful day! Be blessed.

If April showers bring May flowers, then what does May bring?

May in the month of May

May brings possibilities. Hooray it’s the month of May. All the things are blooming in spring Welcome Spring and the season is approaching for warm weather, blue skies, and lots of smiles. A new month, a fresh start, and hopeful beginnings. I pray that you may have the desires of your heart and that you may keep God first in all that you do.

It’s Possible

Have you ever heard the saying that, ‘anything is possible?’ Once you Fight Past the Fear, there are so many possibilities. What is desired from that possibility may happen. It may rain or it may be sunny. You may win the lottery. You may buy that dream home. You may start your own business. You may get married and live your happily ever after. You may get your degree. You may have that child that you have been praying and longing for. There are infinite possibilities of what you may do because “with God nothing shall be impossible.” – Luke 1:37 So with all the possibilities that you have within your reach from simply believing that with God nothing shall be impossible, Don’t Give Up, there is no need for you to doubt, there is only a will for you to do. motivational simple inscription against doubts It is possible for you to achieve your goals. It may seem like a challenge but what is most difficult and seems long and drawn out has a very special blessing. Once you triumph after the challenges, you are able to not only appreciate what you have been blessed with but you obtain a deeper respect for who you are and all that you have come through. In the astonishment of what God has done, you are buckled at the knees to reverence him and all his glory. What you desire becomes more valuable to you in the waiting instead of hurrying to make something happen that isn’t ready.

Perfect Timing

God’s timing is the perfect timing because when the promise is fulfilled there are no mistakes about it. You don’t have to go back and fix anything. You don’t have to start over. You don’t have any regrets. You simply just accept the blessing and the endless possibilities that God has for you simply because you trust in him.

The possibilities of life are boundless. There is nothing to hard for you because there is nothing too hard for God. May you accomplish your hearts desire and may you do so in grace and favor. You can do Put Your Dreams Into Action.

Be Kind.

Such a simple statement. Such a rudimentary thing to say. Such few words, and yet they make a great difference. Being kind or not can not only make or break your day but it could also affect someone else in that same way.

The opposite of being kind is inconsiderate, mean, or cruel. If misery and hurt is bottled up inside you, it can make it very hard to be kind to others. Some of you may have experienced being around someone who is just mean. They look mean, they act mean, or just have a very cold and dim nature about them. You may have asked yourself, ‘ what did I ever do to them?’ Throughout all of the wondering, you still come up empty. Some indicators of an unhappy person is an unkind person and people that are unkind for no reason at all, even though having a reason to be unkind is still not an excuse, you may find that they have other problems that they are dealing with and it has absolutely nothing to do with you.

Sometimes whats needed is to become healed in your heart. Holding the anger in and allowing it to fester can destroy you from the inside out. You can be walking around in anguish and tormented with discord and not realizing that it all goes back to how you feel in your heart. Talking to the person that offended you or that you may have offended is a start to healing. Forgiveness! Praying for them and for yourself is what brings the change.

Being kind makes you feel good. It makes you happy in the inside. It takes very little to be kind. An optimistic attitude helps but it also takes a heart-change. Have that merciful attitude to show the kindness that you would want reciprocated. Being kind is a choice and we all have the liberty to make the decision that will result in a good or bad result. Choices that can be made to treat someone the way we would want to be treated or choosing to treat someone unfairly just because is a liberty that you get to decide and live with. Choosing to be kind is just another way that believers of Christ get to exemplify that love that Jesus has for us to someone else. To someome who may not know God. To someone that wants to know him but is afraid. To someone who was hurt in the church and is looking for a reason to go back. How glorifying to God would it be that you could be the cause of someone giving their life back to Christ all in the deed of being kind.

Making the choice to show consideration and compassion allows the same to be returned back to you, especially when you need it, when it’s unexpected. In primary school we all started out learning the basics of rules, behavior, and treating others with respect. The things that we learn don’t become irrelevant just because we graduate from them. What we learn becomes part of us, it becomes a tool we get to use and put down when we don’t need it. Go against your flesh and do what sometimes can seem the hardest. Be Kind. Be a walking expression of God’s love. You never know who may need that expression of love and you never know how much more you needed it for yourself.

Don’t Give Up

“They wanted to see you fail, instead, continue to disappoint them.”

-FFC- Nickiea McArthur, Writer

The success of your life is not wrapped around those that are anxiously waiting for you to become dismounted. The success of your life is wrapped around you never fainting and moving forward humbly with the desire that God has placed in your heart.

The vision that you have isn’t for others to understand or agree with, it’s for you to be obedient in the calling that God has declared for you to walk in. There is a reason that gift or skill is working out exactly for you, because it was meant for you. There is no one else that can do or be the original version of yourself. You are not meant to bend to the will of those around you based on their judgements or carnal way of thinking. You are already above that. You are peculiar and the gift that you have is distinct and specifically designed to bless you and others by carrying out the will of God. You’re success is attached to your obedience. Embrace it. Own it. Live it.

Now is the time for you to leave behind the negative opinions of others. Now is the time for you to take the path “that is less traveled” and go forward toward your victory. The path less traveled may seem harder, you may feel alone and it you may feel defeated from the start but there is a man named Jesus, he’s my savior, and he’s my King and the path that he took in description was hard too but not without purpose. You are alive to witness that very purpose, have a look in the mirror and witness the love of our heavenly Father. The path that Jesus took, alone was for you and me. The path that you take now, know that you are not alone, believe that the one walking by your side will carry you right into your break through.

Some things you will need to discover on your own, just as when God gave you your vision, you were on your own. It was only you and him. He spoke to you in an unmistakeable voice and you listened. The gift and talent that God has blessed you with is not trending, it’s evolving as he expands you further into your purpose. Your creativeness and your talent is invaluable and should not be regarded as a trend. Why would you want it be? Trends die out, they fade and they are forgotten. What you do with your creativeness and your talent instead becomes a profound legacy.

Yes, you are more than what they say. Yes, you are more than what they think. If they ask, just who do you think you are? Tell them you are a child of a King.

Until next time my friends….be blessed

Community Amounts to Change

Hands to Help

“You have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” -Sam Levenson The ongoing efforts of a thriving community requires the help of people and although a lot of things are outside of any one persons control, we as people do have the autonomy to do what is within our authority and even more so, within our reach. Being involved in your community is something to be proud of. When becoming active, you begin to create bonds and enjoy a happier place to love.

The start to changing the world is right outside your doorstep, in your very own community and by being your very own self. What happens in your community can affect you as well. Crime rates can affect the security that one may or may not feel in their home, bad roads can affect the way you travel to work or school, and even pollution can play a big factor on health. These are just a few things but what happens in your community can be impacting to you. Helping to improve the not so great parts of your local area will not only be good for you but for others in your area.

Be the Change……

Making change in a community first starts with the will to want to make a difference. That difference is not necessarily for yourself, it’s primarily for others such as children, grandchildren, neighbors, and the elderly. The difference is for those that you get to leave a legacy to, all done in the heart of taking an exemplary action. In one of my articles titled, The Greatness of Community it outlines why community is important and its purpose. Community is not just solely the radius combining a group of homes; it’s the people that are in the homes that make it and each of us have ideas, skills, and talents to contribute to the place we call home. There is a saying that “if it’s not broke then don’t fix it.” I never quite agreed with that and I’ve heard it many times. I believe that the belief of that quote can single handily destroy the innovative ideas for future progression because in part, although it may not be broken, it can always be better. I consider it a privilege and a blessing to wake up each day and work to improve something, making it better than before. There is another saying that I quite like and it is something most can agree, which is, change is inevitable. As we look to make a better future for ourselves and those around us we first have to “be the change that we want to see.” -Gandhi

The Assembly

In hope to reaching a greater solution contribute what you have. The authority that we have to contribute is not always financial; it can also be contributing our time. “The greatest of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of it members.”  It takes time to perform action. There is action when doing community clean-ups, volunteering at the local schools or even time at the neighborhood watch meeting. Putting time in for the goal of a thriving community takes more than one person. It takes being humbled to listen to someone else’s ideas and encouraging a sense of togetherness. Life has shown that we all need someone and every person on this earth needs some form of help from another person. That support that is given comes from a person that is humble enough to think of others before themselves, that truly lives moral values and even more so Christian values to bear another’s burden. “As we have the opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” -Galatians 6:10 There is greatness that can take place in a community by the hands of those from the community. Here are some ways that you can make a difference in your community:

  1. Campaign a community clean-up day
  2. Volunteer where needed in your local area
  3. Donate. Give.
  4. Become a mentor.
  5. Shop locally
  6. Attend community meetings
  7. Join your local neighborhood watch. Don’t have one, you might the one to get it started 🙂

You can also see ways of how you can get active by researching local community outreach organizations in your area or better yet be the one to make a difference in your community by initiating the change.

Until next time……
