My Mother Dearest

20160818_110527

I almost lost my mother recently. After being rushed to the hospital, she was diagnosed with a stroke. Mom’s been battling her illnesses for many years, and little by little its been taking a toll on her body. My mom is a fighter and thank God for it, as she is slowly pulling through this last bombardment to her body. We take so much in life for granted. What if mom didn’t survive this incident?

Time Out

Taking a break in between life stresses

inspiration-1514296_640

Taking time out of your busy day is beneficial to your physical and spiritual well-being. If you make it habitual, you will be able to think more clearly and creatively. Life will be more enjoyable if you tap into that alone time.

My time out is early in the morning, reflecting and reading the word of God. If I miss that time connecting and praying, I feel stressed out throughout the day.  For example, I woke up a few days ago, and instead of reaching for my bible, I took the television remote in hand and flipped through the channels. Intrigued by the medias political assessment of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, I was trapped trying to listen to different viewpoints of our Presidential candidates.

When I realized I hadn’t taken the time to pray, to be honest I was so caught up with the program, I tried to squeeze my reading into a commercial. Guilt started to take a hold of me and I said to myself, “God is more than a commercial and deserves quality time.”

Now before you judge me, this is not my usual behavior. However I recognized what I was doing, turned off the television and proceeded with my time out to meditate. I felt relieved and was ready to start my day. My time alone gives me peace of mind and is one of the best parts of my day.

This is one of my ways of having time out and setting my day. I also go to the movies alone, spend time with friends, spa, sit by a lake observing nature, and long walks. How about the rest of us? What can you implement in your life to take time out? I am talking about everyday life, not the time we are given for vacation. We are all so busy with work and family, that we scurry throughout the day, failing to recognize we all need to stop, think, relax and just breathe. Even for a moment, learn to be still, clear your thoughts, take time out from the busyness of life. I can honestly say I enjoy my time out. It puts me in a better frame of mind, mentally and spiritually while giving me the ability to write more creatively.

Success in life is about being the best you can be inspite of your journey.

Do you have any creative ideas for time out?

 

Chilling Out

IMG_5403219475826

Vacating the premises of work

For a much-needed vacation

Chllling out

Seeking new adventures

In another place and in a different environment

Chilling out

Sun drenched beaches with grains of sands

Seaweed, seashells,

 Strewn across the beach

Chilling out

Waves rushing, crashing towards the shore

The deep reflecting colors in the deepest of blue

With the mysteries of life in its depths

Chllling out

relaxing, breathing, resting,

Long Summer days hot and steamy nights

Chllling out

Palm trees blowing in the wind

A warm and gentle breeze

Blowing across my face

While the sun with its intensity darkens my

 skin to a reddish hue

Chllling out

No routines, enjoying moments of peace

Slowly breathing,

As I run away from the madness

Erasing my thoughts from afar

 Chllling out

Nights filled with thunder,

lighting and rain

My heart is beating while I’m resting

Ever so softly, quietly, gently

Chilling out

A Beautiful  serene environment

on a glorious summer day

Love, peace and serenity fills my mind

Chllling out

Time to step away and be still, silent

No stress, no mess

Meditating on God’s blessings

Enjoying a spiritual awakening

Chllling out

Clearing my thoughts

Feeling hopeful with renewed strength

Life is a breeze

When you’re chilling out

Ready to face the world

To begin again.

A Simple Prayer

silhouette-1412569_640

Dear Lord, help me to see life more clearly,

All that I am and ever will be belongs to you,

Forgive me in all my ways that are not pleasing,

Help me become more devoted to following your ways

Change my heart, O Lord

Help me to walk with a servants heart,

Loving my fellow man,

Renew my spirt, and increase my Faith

Let the words of my mouth

Speak the truth

Thank you for all your blessings

May we never take anything in this life for granted.

OFF TOPIC

What is going on in our skies?

20160623_185229

Have you looked up at our blue skies recently? Most people do not focus on what’s going on, unless there is something unusual going on. Well, to my surprise I found out there is more going on than I possibly could have imagined. If you’re asleep in your awakened state, too busy to pay attention to the skies above, the spraying of chemicals called chemtrails would go unnoticed.

pentagram-176618_1280

I can still remember the day I looked up and saw contrails crisscrossing a beautiful blue sky. At least I thought it was contrails left over from the airplanes passing by. They were unusual and did not dissipate but turned a bright and sunny day into a day filled with dark clouds. There were X’s, parallel lines and tic-tac-toe grids for miles across the sky. This is not a one time event but takes place several times all over the world.

Perplexed by what was happening, I decided to find out what was changing the skies above. I went to the Internet and googled my observations. What I found out changed the way I looked at our skies forever. I stumbled across a website which talked about chemtrails or Geoengineering. It was called collective evolution what on earth are they spraying which provided more technical aspects of chemtrails vs contrails. As I knuckled down to read the information, I got more than I bargained for, and I was very disturbed.

I am not a conspiracy theorist, but years later, the more and more I paid attention to the skies above, I realized what was being discussed in some of those articles were true. This crisscrossing effect has been taking place since the early  90’s. Why didn’t I notice it earlier? The more I read, the more angry I became because this is our air space, how dare they contaminate it with chemicals. This earth belongs to our creator but is also our home which should not be altered. What are the ramifications for the future on our health? Why are people in denial of what’s being seen all over the globe. I was on vacation in the Caribbean, and there it was on a beautiful hot sunny day to my dismay.

They believe most people wouldn’t see it, or oppose it even when its being done right in front of their eyes. We are asleep, and the more we are willing to walk with our eyes closed, the more they can put through these programs which contains chemical pollution which damages our air quality. Did you know these programs were implemented since the early 90’s? I asked myself,” why didn’t I notice this before?”

Choose to walk with your eyes wide open. Pay attention to what’s being done in your name whether it’s spiritually, scientifically or politically. After all it’s your taxes that are paying for all these government induced programs. Ask whether or not It’s to your advantage or disadvantage?

What do you think of what’s going on all over planet earth?

Color and skin

 A spectrum of Gods design

Our world, is filled with a lot of  beauty and an array of different colors. Its range can be seen in the animal kingdom, our oceans, insects, and land formations. We notice it in rock formations, flowers, and the human race.

I recently had a conversation about the color of our skin, with a woman I’ve known for years. She asked me, why did God create us with different skin tones? Surprised by this question, coming from a person who lived more than half of their life, I attempted to explain it in layman’s terms. “God created mankind in his own image .”Let me continue by saying, all humans on planet earth are descendants from Noah and his wife, his three sons and their wives. Before that the original man and woman was Adam and Eve. We are one human family which is called the human race.

So, why did God make us different  skin colors? Instead of going into scientific answers to this question, and trying to analyze the genetics of mankind, I will give you my personal opinion and simplistic view. After reading through many passages in the bible over the years, I believe God, the creator of the heavens and the earth is a God of diversity.

When I look at nature in all its wonder, whether the birds of the air, flowers, plants or trees , God created them in different shapes and colors. Nothing is exactly the same. The colors of the rainbow shows his handiwork. Look  at the entire universe, his creation, his masterpiece.  WHAT DO YOU SEE ABOVE AND BELOW? COLOR! Our planets within our own galaxy shows color. All that is seen is Gods artwork, his intelligent design. He loves color and You and I are no different. Can you imagine a world where there is only one race? How about a world absent of color? Our world revolves around color, that’s what makes it aesthetically pleasing to the eyes.

Some people would have you believe color is due to inbreeding, moving to different climates, and genetics. There are those who would even suggest Adam and Eve may have produce offspring in different colors. Even if any of these claims were true, our God who is in control of all things, would have known the outcome. Don’t believe the hype! God is a God of variety and splendor.  I believe, he will always be a God who uses color in all his creations. He is in control of everything, whether your skin is black, brown, yellow, red or white, color is determined by our creator.

Color is also a construct created by man in order to divide the human race, rather than unite us as a people.We must stop sweating the small stuff in life and come together, refraining from what makes us different, but remembering  our commonality as human beings.  Martin Luther king once stated ” I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their  character. ” Accept others, no matter what their color, as our Fathers has designed each of us for his great pleasure. If we say we believe in God, how can we reject his creation?

John 1:3-All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Psalm 139:14-I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.

 

 

Open My Eyes

banner-1235602_1280

Let me not walk in

Darkness

But in the light

Open My eyes

So I may gain wisdom

When I marvel at your words

Open my eyes

So I can walk in peace

As I pray for your guidance

Open my eyes

So I will not be misled

By those who surround me

Open my eyes

So I can read your word

And walk in the way of truth

Open my eyes

To God’s guiding light in my life

So I may not be blinded

Open my eyes

So I may be blessed

With the ability to discern

Truth from lies

Grant me the courage

To stay on course

So I may be a doer

And not just a

hearer of the written word.

May God be Praised
