Year of Yes…

It's that time of year... I sit still and spend time meditating and asking God to reveal to me what the focus of the new year will be for me, my marriage, my family,  and my businesses. Immediately He prompted these words; it will be the Year of Yes. My heart stopped...what, Yes! NO!!!!! I... Continue Reading →

What I know for sure…

You have my heart completely! Faith... This past week I underwent several medical tests. I’ll spare you the gory details, but it places things into perspective -that’s for sure! As I recovered and sat quietly in my bedroom. I took that the time to reflect on things I know to be true, and I wanted... Continue Reading →

I needed it to be a cold blue…

I sat and cried. I thought I was okay, but I wasn’t.  The night before, I was taking my evening stroll and lectured my husband, that if anything should come back, that's questionable, I didn’t want anyone to overact. That if my tests were to prove something malignant, I wanted everyone to be strong. Yet,... Continue Reading →

Take off the mask…

Depression: “feelings of severe despondency and dejection.” I was depressed, and I didn’t even know it. I never liked the word “depressed.” I said I was at peace, but I was actually numb - The hurt was so grave I didn’t know what else to do but to mask it with what I called peace,...

He keeps answering my heart!

Have you ever sat still enough to ask, God, do you see this? Are you listening? Do you know my heart? Have you ever sat still enough to recognize that God sees all things, He listens to everything, and yes, He understands the desires of our hearts! Our hearts hide the most intimate details of...

He’s whispering…can you hear it?

While doing my spring cleaning I came across a folder that was full of writings. They were each dated, and I was curious to read where my heart, mind, and soul were living those many years ago. What was my current state of mind? What was I thinking about? And I came across one entry... Continue Reading →

Do I call?

The call came in. My father had a heart attack and is intensive care. I sit still and wait. I sit still and process what is before me. Do I love or do I walk away Do I choose to remember how he protected me or do I remember how he treated my mom? Do... Continue Reading →

Just keep polishing…

I have attended several weddings in the past months, and one ceremony had a poignant moment. They asked specific people to surround them.   They stood up, walked up to the couple, surrounded them, and prayed over them, blessing their marriage. These were their mentors.  Folks that will keep them accountable in marriage. Now that's a... Continue Reading →

Complicit…Are you?

Complicity the state of being an accomplice; partnership or involvement in wrongdoing: complicity in a crime. This blog became bigger than me than my opinions, experiences or conversations.  I was going through a personal experience realizing that I would be complicit in the neglect of someone I love if I did not speak up. Hence, this... Continue Reading →

“Silent Witness”

The year was 1966.  On April 3, a baby girl was born on the Lower East Side, the firstborn for Maria. One month later on May 29 of the same year, another baby girl was born in the Bronx, the youngest child of Lydia. These two baby girls had no idea their lives would cross... Continue Reading →

He’s not broken…

The irony of both, Valentine's Day, a... Continue Reading →

Walking on Water…

How many times have you felt you are walking on water?  How many times have you felt, it will take a miracle?  How many times have you said this is an impossibility? I can honestly say I have said it more than a hundred times.  I have had to walk on water more times than... Continue Reading →

The Waiting Room (Part 2)

When his name was called, we walked into the lab room.  They asked my husband to hold Rob in his lap and hold down his little arms so that they could draw a significant amount of blood.  My husband's legs began to shake, his tears just flowed as he watched Rob so quietly, without a...

The Year of New…

Each October, I take time to sit quietly and reflect on the fact that there are only three months left in the year.  At this time I begin to pray for a focus for me personally, my family and our businesses as we prepare to enter in a new year. I begin to ask God... Continue Reading →
