Words of Encouragement

BE contagious,




Do you have a vision for yourself?

You were created for purpose

or have you settled and given up?

Time is something we can’t get back.

Use wisely!

Continue celebrating your special day. May the favor of God shine bright on you, like a star in the night sky.

U made it another year, with VICTORY!

U are STILL here
The JOY of the LORD is your STRENGTH!




As I sit here reflecting , I smile & give THANKS unto the LORD because truly he is GOOD!
When the voice of distraction tried to block me and and then call my name, “saying that you will not make it!”

Many weapons may form, but shall not prosper. I am more than a CONQUEROR in CHRIST JESUS!
I will TRUST in the LORD with ALL my heart, mind & soul.
These are not JUST some words on a page, but the REALITY of my FAITH in GOD!
SINCE I KNOW IF GOD BE FOR ME whoo….what…. , can be against me.
Whether in a storm, walking or passing through.
No matter what life circumstances may hold for you, put your TRUST in JESUS.
Your FAITH in HIM will SEE you THROUGH!



Thank you Lord for strength to endure this situation.
There is a blessing in the lesson you are teaching me.
Continue to give me your unspeakable JOY in the midst of chaos.

Teach me your ways, oh Lord!
Let me attentive as I listen to your voice.
That I shall discern my next move according to your will.
I shall not give up, I shall not give in, but endure as a good soldier.
I shall continue the course ahead.

No weapon formed against me, my loved ones, shall prosperous. Greater is HE who lives within me then,he who is in the world.
I have the spirit of LOVE and a sound mind, therefore I will not fear!

Holy spirit I thank you, for being a watchman over my very thoughts. Pull down every thought and imagination that would try to bring about confusion in Jesus Name.

Guide my words and my actions, that I may walk according to your path of peace & love.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight oh, Lord, in matchless Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.



My Daughters,

You are growing up so fast.
I am so very proud of you and love being your Mom. Sweetie, just because everyone is doing it and the world is changing everyday around us does it it mean we have no standards?
Everything has it proper place. There is a time and place for everything.
I must share with you what my Mom, your Grandmother Enetta (Granetta), shared with me. “It may slip and it may slide, but don’t every let it ride in your heart and guide your thoughts. These where words spoken after my butt got whooped and my mouth got washed out with soap.
You guys made the statement, that when you were some age how you would be so mad at your dad and you would just use foul language to vent.

When you guys were very young that is something that Ava,Starla & Doc did, they would speak it and write it towards me and your dad. One day they got it really bad because just as he walked in they got caught. He witnessed firsthand speaking foul words, asking you and Maya to repeat, while they laughed joyfully and cheered you on. It was a like a game to them. He was furious…he washed mouths out with soap, I got home to gagging kids & the two of you crying, him yelling….

The use of foul language does matter…

It matters to God, if we are Christian striving to be more like JESUS, it should matter to us. Death and Life is in the Power of the tongue.

All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.” “Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive.” “The venom of asps is under their lips.” “Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.” …

Ecclesiastes 5:2
Be not rash with your mouth, nor let your heart be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven and you are on earth. Therefore let your words be few.

Proverbs 21:23

Luke 6:45
The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable, but the mouth of the wicked, what is perverse.

Read, study, and pray these scriptures daily, along with the life changing story. The Word will deliver and transform your lives forever.

Love You,


“Positive reinforcement, respect, encouragement and consistency in the life of a student will open doors, taking them on a journey of success.”




Missed placed dreams.

Make me want to scream.

Go here, go there.

Sometimes it is too much to bare.

My call, my destiny.

God’s plan, God’s purpose.

My call, my destiny.

Every struggle, serving God’s plan.

Each trial and tribulation comes to make us strong.

Hold on…

God’s plan, God’s purpose!

My call, my destiny

Timing, time will make it crystal, crystal clear.

God’s plan, God’s purpose, God’s GLORY!

  1. I love your message to your girls. I don’t understand why some people have to use bad language all the time. My children now live with their mum and I don’t see them anymore but I know God has a plan so I must be patient
