Why Can’t I Find A Good Man? – Confronting Brokenness and Wrong Thinking.

I usually don't like to talk much about relationships - romantic relationships to be exact.  I'm single and quite enjoying my season so I try to focus on learning to be present and thankful, while maximizing where God has me. I am quite enjoying the gift of Keciah. I have peace. I have joy. But all around …

When Obedience Disappoints

A few months ago I made a move that I believed God was leading me to make and it failed... Terribly. I had my hopes built up, thought this instruction would lead me to an end result I was praying about for a while now. I prayed, fasted and obeyed but the move crashed.. And …

An Open Letter to A Sister in Christ:

I'll admit the image of you bothered me. Being around you always placed me on edge. It made me uncomfortable and uneasy within myself. I prayed about it. I know division is not of God and so for months I tried to figure out why. Why is it that I felt this aversion to you? You've …

Seasons Change

As we witness nature transition so beautifully and effortlessly from fall to winter… We should all take a lesson from the trees.

SEASONS (I borrowed this picture from my church's website} The Tree in its SEASONS (I borrowed this picture from my church’s website)

I’ve been trying to understand where my fairly recent obsession with landscape photography came from.

I grew up in the country in a small town right by the ocean. I spent my childhood playing in the bushes, making mud pies and climbing trees. Most of my mornings were spent by the ocean, with my grandmother, watching the dawn break. (I sometimes look at my son playing video games or tapping away at his tablet and feel a tinge of guilt – my childhood was, by far, way more enriching than his – of course he’ll never think so 🙂 ).

Needless to say, I find my solace in nature. And so it’s not unnatural that I should want to capture it. I’ve almost exhausted what’s left of the fall foliage, now I find myself looking forward to winter…

Autumn Falls!

Re-Post Just Because it’s Fall 🙂

october3Lately, I have discovered I have a passion for photography. I don’t even know where it came from but  for the past few months, while walking back and forth to work, I have been overwhelmed by the beauty of God all around me and there’s a burning desire in me to capture it, similar to when I get inspiration for a poem. Unfortunately, I don’t have a “photographer’s camera”, it’s just me and my I-phone and I know nothing of lines, compositions, shutter speeds and ISO, so I’ve just been doing the best I know how until I can get a real camera and take some photography classes. ( P.S. Christmas is coming up and my birthday is two months later, if anyone wants to buy me a Nikon D3300 I will love you forever 🙂 )

And so, in this very difficult season I’m in (I like to call it my refinement process) I’m…

In Due Season….

For the last few months I have been battling a lot of frustration. In fact, had it not been for the Grace of God I might not have had the strength to stay the course. I even considered deleting this blog :-(. But God in his goodness, revealed these words to me and since then …

Dispelling The Myth of “Someday”

I used to wonder when my life would start. Day after day I felt as though I was waiting for something to happen -  although I could never quite figure out what that something was. At one point I thought it was a man that I needed - perhaps a fairy tale romance would add …

Dear God… When?

Ever felt like you were watching everybody else's glory? Like you were watching God bless everyone else and you were always experiencing someone else's shining moment but it seemed like your turn would never come? Have you ever felt like you had just as much talent and just as much anointing yet day by day …

A Letter To My 7 year old Black Son and Every Black Son in America – Your Life Matters

My beloved son: You are so smart, inquisitive and brave and now in your world of superheroes and wrestling action figures you are the master – you are in charge and you wield all the power. My heart breaks at the thought of you growing up and forgetting, or worse, relinquishing this power. I know …
