"Never be afraid of letting go of the person that God himself did not choose for you." According to google June 7, 2021 "Unfortunately scammers continue to become more sophisticated and last year used the COVID-19 pandemic to scam and take advantage of people from all walks of life during the crisis." No one stops to think that many relationships are a scams or a convenience. For some people, appearance is everything, and behind closed doors, some relationships you would not recognize. Some horrific ordeals can be traumatizing to one's mind. But we can use that experience to make us feel more valuable that will far exceed that experience and bring healing to ourselves with God's help. Or we can let the experience take us down into a further pit of misery or, worse, stay there and be miserable for the rest of our lives. Thinking if we fake the abuse, our relationship will make it somehow. When I say abuse, people automatically think of physical abuse, no! Abuse comes in many forms; for the sake of time, I will list seven: Physical, emotional, sexual, neglect, abandonment, financial and self-neglect.Read full story
Every Woman Needs One
Platonic love is a type of love that is not sexual. The term is named after the Greek philosopher Plato, though the philosopher never used the term himself. Every female should experience a platonic relationship (s) in her life. Maybe in her twenties, that'll be awesome, if not as long as she has a chance to experience a platonic relationship, is all that matters. I have had four positive platonic relationships and we are still friends until this day. Looking back, these men were placed in my life to help fashion me into the woman I am today. They each helped me design the blueprint of the man I am joyfully married to today.Read full story
Neighborhood's and Communities
Purchasing a home is very exciting, so exciting you must pump your brakes; to do your research, a lot of research. Ten years ago, my husband and I received an offer on a house that was too good to pass up. It was a spacious home, four bedrooms, over 2000 square feet, newly built with a twenty-year mortgage.Read full story
Mama’s Baby, Daddy’s Maybe
“A legal paternity test is a genetic test to determine whether a man is the biological father of a child. If a man is a biological father, the man is deemed by law to have “paternity.” Courts will order biological fathers (fathers who have paternity) to pay child support. Biological fathers may also file a petition with a court seeking to adopt the child. Biological fathers may also be given custody and visitation rights”. ~legalmatch.com.Read full story
Family Is Everything
One or two things may have happened as you read the title; you either got the warm fuzzies, or you may have cringed? Either reaction isn't necessarily adverse, but I would like to reiterate that family is everything. What most people fail to realize is that God established family. So, anything and everything that can separate family, if allowed, it will. The destruction of this relationship is precisely what the enemy wants.Read full story
You Are Amazing!
When was the last time that you took a good look in the mirror; to look at you? I mean, of course, we all look in the mirror each day to wash our face, brush our teeth, comb our hair or shave. But do you really look at yourself and admire your beautiful or handsome face?Read full story
Are You Living or Are You Existing?
In my opinion our greatest accomplishments in life are all the mistakes (valleys) that we have made and will continue to make. Because after all, life is a journey. I can honestly say that the mistakes I made were valuable lessons, causing me to climb higher. My Aunt use to say, “there is nothing like bought sense”. Meaning you had to pay a price for making a bad choice or decision. Some lessons will have to be repeated until we get it right. But, don't fret. Discipline yourself not to keep making the same mistakes, expecting a different outcome, because that would be insanity.Read full story
Loyalty vs Closure
I am sure that most people have lost a family member, or know a family that has lost someone due to murder. Murder is senseless no matter how, when, or why it happened. It leaves a family feeling obliterated and pulverized. Everyone deserves closure to help them through their grief. If your family has not experienced a loved one being snatched away by murder; count your blessings. I pray that your family will never experience death in that way.Read full story
