Hi There!

Welcome to my blog! This space has been used over the past several years to document mainly my natural hair journey and several different aspects of my life such as spiritual matters, my jewelry design, and parenting.

Safety Drill Practice

Our After School Routine:

I rush to the car.
Drive to the school.
Park car.
Walk to front of the school.
Pick Z up from the carpool line (because it is waaaay quicker than waiting in that long carpool line).
Z says goodbye to her teacher and "boyfriend" (another story).
Z tackles me with her biggest hug (Lord, help me to cherish these precious moments even more).
We hold hands.
She tells me about her day as we walk back to the car.

Yesterday, she excitedly tells me that her school practiced three drills that day: tornado, fire, and lockdown. It's amazing how our minds are wired because instantly my mind flashed back to Sandy Hook.

Humanly Flawed but Spiritually Confident

Just something the Spirit within spoke to me this past weekend that I wanted to share:

My confidence comes from knowing that God has made me unique and that I do not have to live in the bondage of trying to meet societal expectations. I am free to be me and to strive to live only by His holy standards. As a Christian, I do not have it all together, and I struggle with so many inner battles (anxiety being the greatest of all). I fall, I stumble, I get hurt and sometimes hurt others. I cry, get frustrated, and angry about life from time to time. I desire so much to please God yet the devil sometimes convinces me that I can't because I am too flawed. When I come to my senses and be still, I see God's provision over my life. That's when I get back up again and move another step forward. The beauty of my journey is that when I give my best, He will cover the rest. My peace rests in Him. ALWAYS. 

Without God, I am NOTHING. With God, I am perfect just the way I am. So are you...

Be blessed and Be.YOU.ALWAYS. Have a great weekend!
