Happy Black History Month!

I would be wrong if I didn't give a shout out to Black History Month! I'm really excited about it this year. I don't know why but it just seems like this year I'm really proud of who I am and where I come from.

My Southern history is filled with ugly, horrendous stories of mistreatment and injustice. Thanks be to God that things have changed soooo much!!!

There is also a lot of beauty and wonder in black history. One of my favorite black facts is about Rosa Parks. Did you know she wasn't the first black woman not to give up her seat in order to fight for change? Before Rosa Parks there was Claudette Colvin. Ms. Parks was a part of a well organized plan that forever changed history. She was well-known and well-respected. Check out Ms. Colvin's story!

Ready for summer

A rabbi, a Black baptist minister, and a
priest walk into the room...sounds like the beginning of a good joke right?

Well, I'll tell you what's no joke. I am ready for summer! For the beach and feeling the sand between my toes. Whew! Thank God for creating all that ocean for me to stare at and "get lost" in.

God's creation is really beautiful, isn't it? And to think He made all of this in 6 days (read the book of Genesis). On the 7th day, He rested! That's what I'm tryna do this summer! I'm not God so I'll be taking more than "one day" off!

I'm looking forward to taking long walks in the evenings, cookouts, lounging by the pool with my feet in the water, eating fresh watermelon, going to the outdoor Farmer's market, and drawing on the sidewalk with the kids. What are you most looking forward to this summer?

He is too good fa dat!

God is great, and He is worthy of ALLLLLL our praise! Things in life are not always great or fun but I know that as long as I'm trusting in Him, it will all be ok...even if not until the end.

I've found myself in a complaining mood when I'm supposed to have an attitude of gratitude! Instead of complaining think of something to be thankful for and say that aloud instead!

I'm also believing that God will do some awesome things with work I'm doing in my community. I am banging on heaven's door like the persistent widow in Luke 18. He is too gracious for my murmuring and complaining! I'm gonna trust Him because He's done great things, and I know He ain through yet!!!

My babies!

Click here to order (

So I've wanted to be "the cool auntie" for a long time. I finally have gotten my opportunity! No, I don't have a sister or sister-in-law who has kids. Over the last two years, I've gotten a chance to be a part of a family that I started out "serving". Now, they might as well be like "blood family".

I never knew you could fall so in love with someone else's kids! We've gone to the movies, shopping, out to eat, to the park, had sleepovers, done crafts, and much more!

One thing that I used to do when I first started to babysit them was to read a children's book entitled, The Jesus Storybook Bible . It's a wonderful book of Bible stories! They loved it! I need to start taking it again if I ever watch them again as a way to teach them about Jesus. I pray that they would come to accept Christ early in life and be powerful witnesses for Him!
Are you a cool auntie? What do you do with your nieces and nephews?
