Is This Joy?

This morning I woke up happy. Genuinely happy. Like 'not a worry in the world' happy. And even if there are the tiniest of worries, they are so insignificant when compared to the magnitude of blessings that I have in my life. I cannot help but be happy. Is this joy? If so, I am …

Cheers! To Our Beautiful Energy

Last weekend, I traveled to Memphis for a beautiful wedding! It was a quick road trip filled with laughter and joy! When I returned to Baton Rouge, I couldn't wait to tell others about the festivities. The bride, my dear sorority sister, was gorgeous!! Her loving husband cried throughout the ceremony. The bridal party looked …

One Little Word® | 2018

This morning, I write. Fully caffeinated, joy-filled and blessed, I write. A foiled calendar hangs on the wall near my reading nook and I realize that today is January 19th. I've been pondering my word for a whole nineteen days! On second thought, I've pondered what to share regarding my word choice. At the close …

Feelin’ Good

Hello! Today is an awesome day! I continue to celebrate 100 sales on Etsy! (Check out my shop!) The only tune that can express my joy is "Feeling Good" by Nina Simone! 🙂 Take a moment to listen! I hope that you find ways to connect with the little things that keep you feeling good! …

Uncommon Things, Hidden in Plain Sight.

Very few sermons stick with me for days after I've heard them, especially when I wasn't physically in the same space as the individual(s) presenting the message. Every now and again, I'll join an online service. Recently, I watched "I Am Number 8," delivered by Pastor John Gray at The Potter's House (Dallas). If you …

Blessings Keep Falling In My Lap

*Chance the Rapper voice* Don't be maaaaad! I love this song! It always reminds me of Psalm 23. The elaborately prepared table of blessings... It may be in the presence of my enemies, but my 'dinner guests' are necessary. Compelled to look on, they are amazed to see how God provides. #WhenThePraisesGoUp #BlessingsKeepFallingInMyLap #BlessingsOverWorldlyPossessions Enjoy …

Embrace the JOurneY

"Embrace uncertainty. Some of the most beautiful chapters in our lives won't have a title until much later." - Unknown (...or Pinterest) There is so much beauty in the journey. So Much! My future autobiography will be fascinating! In recent months, I've had amazing conversations with close friends and family. Reflecting, I discovered that I have a …

For Why?

My great-niece loves saying 'for why.' I think it's her sweet and sassy way of shutting down a conversation. She's only three and she is definitely a little boss! I don't get to visit her as often as I'd like but our conversations keep me laughing. For example... Me: "Let's clean up our toys." Her: "For …

Fortune Cookie Contentment

I am not one to place my faith in an average fortune cookie. However, I do believe that God can speak through any medium. Rather than walking through each day with blinders on, I welcome messages that might tap into prayers and thoughts. You see, I don't have one-and-done prayers. My speaking with God is an …

Unlike Butter…

There are few things in life that work better when spread thin. Butter and jam, yes... however, I am not one of those things. In fact, as time moves along, I gain a greater understanding that I become less effective when saying yes to everything. Once during a job interview, I took pride in expressing …
