Daily Reminders

Good evening,

So daily I read devotionals, and read scripture... that's the normal Christian woman reading...

But I get daily reminders from my kids about God's presence and His love.  From my youngest (4) to my eldest (11).

They remind me that what I tell them and what they learn in Sunday school is actually sinking in.  God is a vibrant part of their lives and I like it so much, (this coming from the mom who feels she fails her kids every day).

Just this Sunday, my 4 year old, bursts into dance singing Tye Tribbett's "If He Did it Before... He Can Do it Again..."  It was quite enlightening knowing that they love God as much, if not more, than I do.

They also love The Walls Group and will sing "Perfect People" without provocation.
Some days, you sit back and just listen to them and they will surprise you.

Also on Sunday, I learned that some girls in Sunday school class called my son gay.  I was taken aback by this because these kids were in Sunday school.  But I had to remind myself and my son that everyone does not have the same mind when going to church and to just forgive them and remember no one is perfect.  But how do you address that???  Sexual orientation is not a topic for Sunday school, nor is it funny to bully a person about it.  Wow!!!!

Well, I love you.

Now, Always and Forever!!!!

Hiatus/Inspiration

Sorry about the hiatus.

Been going through a lot of individual battles while weathering my storm.  

I noticed that the more I stayed distracted by the battles, I stopped moving through the storm and I keep feeling bogged down and flooded.

God says not so!!!!

So I stepped back, watched each battle as they came, whoooo don't get me wrong, I was having a time, wailing, crying, getting mad, frustrated, pity party, then happy,joyful, and thankful.

And that's what saved me, thankfulness.

Expressing thankfulness even when I was overwhelmed with everything that was, is and will happen in my life and the lives of my children.

I realized that the minor issues only pop up as distractions to get you to stop moving out of the storm and into your blessing.

So I do hope my test will inspire you to never stop moving... never give up and always trust God.

Love you now, always, and forever...

9/26-27 Inspiration


Good afternoon,


Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; (‭I Corinthians‬ ‭13‬:‭4-5‬ NKJV)

Love is a subject I always refer to because it's a subject Jesus continually spoke about. 


To love someone regardless of whether it's tied to an emotion or event is one thing God wants us to aspire to. 

Having godly love for someone even when they've hurt us is not an easy task. 

Yet, with God all things are possible. 

Hate closes so many doors, but with love the avenues are endless. 

So why not try it?

I love you. Now, always and forever. Have a great day

9/25 Inspiration

Good early afternoon,


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. (‭I Corinthians‬ ‭15‬:‭58‬ NKJV)

This bible verse has been in my head all night and this morning it's the daily scripture. 


Wow! 

Sometimes when you you've done all you can do in a situation, all that's left is just stand! 

Stand on the word of God and don't move from it! 

Trust God in all things! ALL things! 

The turnaround is going to be miraculous! 

You will see the victory in everything and will be thankful for everything!!! 

Some times God doesn't change a situation because He is trying to change you, so are you going to change for Him? 

Or do you want to be pounded by the same thing over and over and over? 

Not so! 

Stand in the Lord's will! Life is getting better and better! I dare you to trust Him and Stand! 



I love you immensely. Have a great day!

9/24 Inspiration

Good morning. 


To some this message is on repeat: 

Besides the storm is not the true test, how you react to the storm is. 

You have a lot I things happening on repeat because you won't listen to what God wants you to do. 

You are NOT anyone's doormat so stop acting like it. 

You are NOT anyone's revolving ATM so stop acting like it. 

You are blessed and highly favored. 

Act like it. 

You have done above and beyond what you were supposed to do. 

Turn the guilt trip off, turn the financial support off, move out and move on. 

It's time to live your life for you. 

You are NOT responsible for anyone's mess but your own. 

God will turn your mess into a message but first you have to get out of the darkness and move. 

Your story is bigger than what you think it is. 

You have to now walk in your God filled purpose. 

And it will be hard, but it's time to cut people off and keep moving. 

Forgiveness is the key. 

Forgive them, forgive yourself and unlock your spirit filled life. 

You may not be perfect but you are YOU and that's what God wants for you. 

Be who YOU are supposed to be, not who others want you to be. 

I love you very much!!!! 

Stay encouraged. Have a great day

9/23 Inspiration

Good afternoon. 

Change is coming your way

In the midst of your storm, you have to keep moving, embrace the change. 

God's plan for you is coming into fruition but you cannot stop in the middle of the storm, you have to keep moving


Have your works line up with what God wants over your life and everything is going to line up. 

Not saying it is going to be as smooth as you can imagine, but everything is going to work out in your favor and blow you away. 

Stay encouraged. 

You are blessed and highly favored. 

I love you with my whole heart and soul. Have great day!

Good afternoon. 

Some days you will be stressed to the boiling point. Some days you may even explode. 

But be of good cheer. 

Everything is going to work out in your favor

When you are stressed, try not to react in anger because once that energy is out there it cannot be returned. 

Act in love even when you don't feel like it

The positivity will come back to you exponential. 

God wants you to do everything in love, so try it. 

You are stressed and mad... Go help someone without expecting a return, the return will blow you away. 

You are blessed and highly favored always. 

I love you: now, always and forever. Have a great day.

9/19 Inspiration

Good morning. 



Some days we feel that no matter what we do right, there's always something that comes up that takes us to the vulnerable place of being behind or being wrong. It drives you to start thinking nothing will be right or I'll never catch up. 

God says not so!!! 

Trials come up in our lives to test your faith in God, to test your faith in yourself or to change you. 

They are the most uncomfortable moments in your life but don't lose heart

God will place people in your life to help elevate you when you feel down. 

But beware of dream killers and sowers of doubt. 

They pretend to be for you but secretly are killing your dreams behind your back. Don't be discouraged with them either. 

Use them as motivation to move forward even faster. 

Take every day every step every breath in a forward moving motion. 

Even when walls come up, keep going forward. 

Let nothing stop you. Nothing

I love you with all my heart. Now, always and forever. Have a great day.

9/18 Inspiration

Good morning/evening. 



It's quite possible that the very thing you are praying for God has already answered. 

You just have to keep moving to get to it. 

Some times we get so caught up in wanting the answer that we lose sight of the journey. 

You have to keep moving through every day, every storm, every test to get to your blessing. 

There are so many gains in continuing to move towards what God has for you. 

Don't get so caught up in the blessing that you lose yourself and your faith walk. 

Pray daily. 

Feed your spirit. 

Enjoy the good and learn from the bad. 

God will turn a mess into a message, a test into a testimony, so why not try Him? 

I love you immensely.  Now, always and forever. 

Have a great day

9/17 Inspiration

Good morning. 

Some times we have issues with people in our lives and we let them become stumbling blocks instead of stepping stones. 

We let the interactions plant seeds of discord confusion and fear into your mind. Making you drift off your path of righteousness. 

But God says not so!!! 

Trust God, He can fix it even when you don't see how. 

Trust God, He can turn any and every situation around in your favor as long as you believe. 

Trust God, His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts so things meant to cripple you could be the very thing to elevate you. 

Don't let the seeds take root. 





Speak them out of your life and trust God to do the rest. 

I love you. Now, always and forever. 

Have a great day!

9/16 Inspiration

Good morning. 

Some times when we are going through our personal storms, we ask people to pray for us. 

But what we often don't realize is that same power of prayer and authority is within us just as it is in the person we ask to help. 

Is that person praying on the same accord as you? 

God wants us to speak to the situations in out own lives and move the mountains out of our lives. 

Reaching out is great, but you can speak life over yourself and fix your life better than someone else because you have direct knowledge of the situation. 

Speak life, speak what isn't into the what is. 

Speak health, tell the spirit of infirmity it has no place in your body. 

Speak prosperity, write a budget for the what is now, write a budget for the what you desire and speak your finances to line up. 

Keep yourself encouraged and stay blessed. 

You are loved immensely. 

I love you now, always and forever. 

Have a good day.

9/15 Inspiration

Good morning, sometimes you feel that you've lost your connection with God, with people. 

But once you are saved the connection is always there with God. 

That feeling is a trick of the enemy to get you off the path of righteousness. 

People are different. 

They will change on you but if you truly care, stay the course, stay actively pursuing being in their lives. 

They will either turn away from you or will rebuild their relationship with you. 

Many attacks of the mind come from us not saying how we feel. 

Say it. Say God I feel distant from you, I want to be closer to you, please keep me in your care and draw me near to you. 

Say it. Say (insert name), I feel that our relationship has become distant and I want to correct it before we are no longer anything to each other. 

Changes will come. The only constant is change but sometimes we have to be the catalyst for change. 

I love you immensely. Now, always, and forever. Have a great day

9/13 Inspiration

Good morning/early afternoon, 

Some times after relaxing we often reflect on blessings we had or have and savor the good memories of the past. 

This reflection paired with thanksgiving opens the windows for more blessings to come. 

We may not be where we want to be, may not have all we want to have, but having a spirit of Thankfulness will keep your blessings coming. 

I'm thankful for you always and all the memories we share. 

I love you immensely. Now, always and forever.

 Have a great day

9/12 Inspiration

Good morning (well it's evening now). 




So, even God took a day of rest. 

When you are in the midst of a storm and you feel overwhelmed under the weight of the situation, take a day of rest. 

Jesus wants you to give it all to him anyway, so why not? 

Take a day off from all you are going through and just relax. 

Try it. 

You will see God move in unexpected ways when you rest from it and you let Him work!  

Stay encouraged. 

I love you more than you know. Now, always and forever!  

Have a great day!

9/11 Inspiration

Good morning.

Have you ever taken the time to encourage yourself?

So many things happen over and over and you're just drained physically, mentally and spiritually.

In those times a song usually goes on replay mode in my head.

The Holy Spirit tries to keep me encouraged. And that's Gods plan for all of us to have that encouragement come from him deep within our spiritual selves. He sent the Holy Spirit to be our Comforter in times of despair, frustration and etc.

My song of encouragement to you is Better by Jessica Reedy.  http://youtu.be/XIIHuNAzK10

 stay encouraged. I love you. Now, Always, & Forever!

Have a great day

9/10 Inspiration

Good morning. 

Sometimes, we have to learn that the very person or people you keep helping has to be cut off. 

Not because you are angry with them but because the season of you helping them has ended. 

"No" is a powerful word. 

"No" will let you know and make you grow. 

But remain confident because "no" is not permanent. Delay does not mean denial. 

Just because your season for helping has passed, does not mean your loved one will not get help. Help comes from The Lord. 

Instead of trying to pull a person to their season of self sufficiency, push once and let them fly. 

Flying alone is scary but they have to trust their own wings so they can soar!  

I love you now, always and forever. Have a great day

9/9 Inspiration

Good morning, it seems a lot lately we have someone we still mourn and miss dearly.

Sometimes you feel that though you are surrounded by people, without this particular loved one, you are alone.

Sometimes remembering their life is just as hard as remembering their return to glory.

But God wants you to know you are never alone. He is always with you.

He places others in your life so your pain from the loss of your loved one won't devastate you to the point of depression.

Their loss will always be felt, but you can continue to live until you see them again.

God only wants the best for you. All in love and His love for you is ever present.

Remember I love you immeasurably.

Now, always and forever.

Have a great day.

9/8 Inspiration

Good morning. 

Some times, we find ourselves in situations and we do not know what to do, but the great thing is that God has already given you what you need to surpass your situation. 

The question is what do you really want? 

God has no partiality, He loves us all and He blesses all. 

What you are going through is not what defines you. 

Your life purpose is what God calls you to be. You are who God says you are. 

You are bathed in His love and mercy. You are blessed and highly favored. 

You are loved beyond your imagination. 

I love you now always and forever. Have a great day. And when you have doubt, just breathe!

9/7 Inspiration

Good morning. 
Displaying photo.JPG
Sometimes when you are in the midst of your blessing, you get attacked by someone you least expect to attack you. 

Do not get angry or despair just distance yourself. 

God says when you love, you show it not with words but with truth and deeds. So when a person shows you who they truly are, believe them and walk away. 

Your peace is yours to claim and no ones to steal. 

Above all continue to love them anyway. Forgive and love them, not for their sake but yours. 

While we were yet sinners God forgave us and loves us anyway. 

I love you now, always and forever. Have a great day!!!!

9/4 Inspiration

Good morning. 













Today reach out to someone you haven't talked to in a long time. Even if is just to say hello. 

Often the people we disregard and overlook are the very people who are holding our blessing. 

Even if the person hurt you before, let go. Forgive and be mentally set free. 

Love regardless.

 Love opens more doors than hate ever will. 

Today I pledge to never disregard you, to never overlook you because I love you just the way you are. 

You are blessed and loved. 

I love you now, always and forever. Have a great day.

Love... hope

This morning, as normal, I was running late and had to get gas.

Every day, my daughters and son hug me and we always tell each other, "I love you."

Just recently, I started telling them, "I love you now, I love you always, I love you forever..."  My four year old always repeats it back to me.  It is so pleasing to hear that every day.

Back to the original story, as I was pumping gas, my four year old sticks her head out of the window and say, "Mom look, it's going to be okay."

Out of no where, WOW!!!!  For my baby to instill that small amount of hope into the beginning of my day is such a blessing.  If she can look out on the horizon, love me enough through my mess, and still give me hope that the storm won't last... that is a blessing!!!

I do hope you stay encouraged!  Be blessed always.  I love you!!!!


9/4 Inspiration


Good morning. 

Today, don't let fear and doubt keep you stagnant. Regenerate that energy into motivation. 

What's yours is yours. The only one stopping it is you. 

Don't let situations that were only put in your life as a stumbling block (a life lesson) become a wall that you deem impossible to climb and surpass. 

Fear and doubt are dream snatchers. 

Instead of fearing failure, try it anyway. 

Even if you have a failure in it, you will learn from it. 

You are blessed beyond comprehension. I love you now, always and forever. 

Have a great day!

Positivity Pledge


I saw this online and I love it.  I says everything I am trying to put into my kids.  Positive in, positive out....

Right now it seems like the best thing to teach them.  Focus on everything that God blesses us with and everything else will fall into place.

Let me say, material blessings are not what we focus on.  I am so surprised by the answers I get from my kids when I ask them what they God for.  And the most consistent answer I get get from them is: YOU.

I am blessed in the knowledge that my babies consider me a blessing just as I consider them one.  So stay positive, consider your blessings, stay encouraged.

Love you...

9/3 Inspiration

Good morning. 

Some days even when you have your low points, the only way you have a change in your storm is to be a light for someone else. 

Since God has something better for you always, sometimes you have to push out what you are bringing in. 

Sometimes what is given to you is only yours to give to someone else. Love, mercy, kindness, forgiveness, even material things. 

Often times, God places things in your path to bless someone else so that you have room for your blessing. 

May the light inside of you always grow. You are blessed and loved. I love you now and always, for days & years to come. 

Have a great day!
