Thank YOU!

It's Thanksgiving week and I'm excited. Traffic on the interstates will soon be moving at a snail's pace. Do you have to experience it? One year, traffic was so bad my younger brother turned his car off while sitting on the interstate to conserve gas. It's crazy. Airports are equally as hectic. Not only are there thousands of people trying to fly home, but then the weather could change quickly create a logistical nightmare. Why do we do it? Why do we endure the hassle of traveling this week every year? What makes it so special? Whether with neighbors, friends or family, we [...]

Are you really thankful for THAT?

What comes to mind when you think of November? Do you think about Thanksgiving or are you like American retailers and immediately jump from Halloween to Christmas? Do you think of Pilgrims and Indians, turkey, or pumpkin pie? One thing I miss about teaching elementary school is the large celebrations of any and every holiday. Children will embrace them all. November was always one of my favorite times of year teaching because we talked a lot about the birth of our nation. Many people think Thanksgiving was celebrated as a time to be thankful for coming to a new land [...]

I HAVE A NEW BABY!

Well, if that didn't grab your attention, I don't know what will. NO! I am not expecting a child at my age. Thank goodness. But I did birth something recently. I have worked for over 5 years in the anti-trafficking movement and have finally birthed the nonprofit, Rescuing Hope, Inc. Those of you who have journeyed with me for a while now are not surprised by the name. You can learn all about the ministry by skipping on over to my new website here. I am so very pleased with the way it turned out. It conveys the message of [...]

How are you? REALLY?

We're friends, right? This morning as I was having a chat with Jesus about you, yes you, and I found myself wondering what's going on in your life. Each weekday morning I sit with the Lord to ask Him what to share with you and today I realized I rarely hear from you. I know some of you read my posts on Facebook or other social media and respond there, and others will email me or text me about the blog post, but very few of you actually click on comment and leave a message there. I genuinely want to know what's [...]

How does it happen?

Have you ever seen a pimp? Probably not that you know of, but pimps come in all shapes and sizes. You could walk right by one and not know it. I've come across cases where pimps have been family members, men, women, couples, gangs, and even classmates. Pimps don't walk around wearing a t-shirt that says, I'm a pimp and I plan to sell your body ten to thirty times a night to be raped and I'll keep all the money." They also don't have horns growing out of their head. They look like your average person. They blend in with [...]

Come Out of Hiding!

Who are your people? Do you surround yourself with people who are all like you? Or are you one to seek out those who are different? People can be different from you in a variety of ways: musical tastes, faith, ethnicity, age, and even in their likes and dislikes. I have the most eclectic group of people my world and I love it that way. Some of my friends are closer to my mother's age than mine, yet others are the same age as my children. I have friends from a variety of different countries, which opens up a whole [...]

A 24 year old prayer answered!

How was your Thanksgiving weekend? I thoroughly enjoyed my week with my family. We held true to some old traditions but started what I believe will be some new ones. A new tradition we started this year was running the Gobble Jog. It is a 5K road race that benefits MUST Ministries, an organization that ministers to the homeless, providing them food, clothing and a warm place to sleep at night, among other things. They had over 9000 runners/walkers. One of my favorite Thanksgiving weekend traditions is purchasing and decorating our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. It is a big [...]

What are you looking at?

Do you have a favorite coffee shop? A couple of years ago I was introduced to the Chattahoochee Coffee Company that sits on the Chattahoochee River. It has become my favorite spot for writing or kicking back with friends over a cappuccino. The scenery is beautiful and it is just a tranquil place. A friend of mine, who shall remain anonymous because I love her, shared how she and several ladies visited there for coffee and fellowship. They happen to be stellar gardeners, so they were sitting outside discussing the foliage when one of them comments on the huge bird [...]

Do you have people?

My Wesley UMC People who I've journeyed with for years now. LOVE these ladies! Are you a people person? Do you like to have people around you? Do things with friends? Or are you more of a loner? Like the quiet and solitude of a party of one? Whether you're an introvert or an extrovert, we all need people. Some of us prefer more people than others but as the saying goes, No man is an island." I have a group of ladies I have known for over seventeen years. I met them when I first moved to [...]

Who are you really talking to?

Are you on social media? If so, which ones? Facebook? Twitter? Instagram? Linkedin? and the list goes on and on. When you read an article on the internet there seems to be an endless supply of social media networks available to share the story. Many people are connected on multiple social media sites and visit them all regularly. You can walk into many restaurants today and see a family of four sitting at a table saying nothing to each other, yet all communicating on social media. They've opted to ignore the people sitting in front of them and have chosen to focus [...]
