From the Desk of a Single Mom: Our Very 1st Home….Thank You Jesus!!

Can I brag on My God! God did it! We sometimes want to take credit for the things that happen in our lives! But, I can’t and won’t do that today! Some of us just won’t give credit where it is due! I won’t be one of them!

On 5.11.18 my children and myself were able to secure our very 1st home! That’s a big blessing; one that we can’t take any credit for! So many of us fail to realize that we don’t have total and complete control of what takes place in our lives! Yes, we can get a job and make a bunch of money (some of us) and we can buy all the nice shiny sparkling things; that people will ooh and ahh over but none of that makes any difference if you don’t have God in your life!

Buying a house isn’t a fun and easy process! If you got cold hard cash; then maybe you won’t get the headache! But, when you have to deal with sellers, mortgage companies, banks; etc those headaches are numerous! Your credit score has to be on point! Your bank account has to be at a certain level because you have fees on top of fees you will have to pay out. Did I forget to mention that I didn’t go through one of those 1st time home buyers class? I skipped all over that step; lol! I dove in head first and had no idea what I was getting myself into!

My parents where home buyers before but I was a child when that process took place for the first time; when my dad brought another house years later; he made it seem so easy I didn’t even ask about all the mishaps that could take place. I didn’t tell too many people I was looking to buy because:

  1. I didn’t want to hear any horror stories!
  2.  or do you think your ready?
  3. or really; you think you can handle that?
  4. I don’t know if the market is good for that.
  5. or people counting my coins!
  6. and I didn’t want anyone telling me what God couldn’t do!

I don’t know about you but as a Single Mom; people always feel like you don’t have it all together and need their two cents! Now, don’t get me wrong I love some good sound advice but don’t treat me like I haven’t been raising my kids all this time by myself! I know what I can and can’t handle! And I got a pretty good head on my shoulders and a big decision like this I checked with my Heavenly Father first! He knows what the forecast is before any of us even open our eyes!

You see, when we moved into our last apartment 06.08.17 I wrote a note and put it on my prayer wall! It basically was me saying this had to be it with this apartment living! I was done with it! I was tired, my kids were tired and we wanted better for our lives! We grew tired of all the rules that these apartment communities enforced! They basically had the keys to come and go as they pleased while you were paying the rent! Every time we turned around they were having inspections for this and for that; people all up in your living space. You could park here; but you can’t park there! You can have these many guests over and they have to leave at this time! They charged you for everything; gym key, washer and dryer, updated appliances; jeez really! I was putting out so much money and I knew there had to be a better way.

I would often dream about the day when we could have our own; I prayed for it, I put it on my vision boards; until the last vision board that I did, I just felt it was already done! No need to look for and paste these pictures of houses and what they would have inside of it anymore!

We started the journey almost 6 months into living in that last apartment. I called up a friend that also happens to be a realtor and told him I was ready to start looking for a house! I didn’t know chicken squat about what I needed to do or have; I just knew I was ready! He began to send me listings and gave me the name of a guy at the mortgage company and we were on our way! I wish I could tell you that it was smooth sailing; it wasn’t! The whole process was stressful! Any time you want to upgrade your life; the enemy will be on full alert and the attacks will begin! How dare you think that you deserve more? Better? How dare you?

Let me tell you something! I kept on full steam ahead! My Heavenly Father sent his “only begotten son so that we can have life and have it more abundantly” I wasn’t backing down! And you know some may say; well where is this house? Is it up on a hill? Is it 2 stories high? Is it in a gated community? Does it have those high vaulted ceilings? Are there chandeliers hanging throughout? All that is materialistic and isn’t everlasting! God knows I am a simple chic and that the memories we will build here are far more valuable then all that material stuff!

When I walked into this home; I felt at HOME! I didn’t want to leave! I could feel the joy radiating off the walls! I could feel the laughter! I could feel my kids feeling safe and secure! I could feel God blessing us over and over again! We put in an offer and it was accepted! Yes God! But, I have to add there were many houses before this house! Some far more better, had much more land, had even more rooms and space! There was 1 house that was completely renovated! Had the biggest backyard I’ve ever seen and a garage with the exact washer and dryer set I’ve always wanted; but I didn’t have any of those wonderful feelings I experienced in the home we chose! I wasn’t going to settle because my eyes were fascinated at what I saw! The enemy knows what you like; but God knows what you need!

Every morning I get up I still can’t believe it! Our very 1st Home; I could run, yell and scream and not have to worry about anyone living under us calling and complaining about the noise! I don’t have to wait to vacuum until its almost afternoon time because you might disturb the neighbors! The neighborhood is so calm and peaceful! My neighbors are nice and friendly! My kids haven’t fought not once since we moved in! I have an island in my kitchen! Every place we have lived in the past 5 years the kitchen was so small; we all couldn’t fit in there! Our kitchen now can fit all the kitchens from all our past places! Only God!

Let me tell you this if nobody else has: ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE WHEN YOU HAVE GOD IN YOUR LIFE!

I’m still a Single Mom, still haven’t found the right career path but let me tell you this; we aren’t living in another apartment because God said it was time to advance!! I don’t question when God moves anymore! I used to get frustrated with him; like come on God when is something going to happen! When will I get married? When will I stop living paycheck to paycheck? When will my books start being on women’s bookshelves and in their hands? When? Our time isn’t God’s time! When He says it is time; then we better be ready! Are you ready? Are you ready to advance? What actions are you taking? All I had to do was “write the vision and make it plain!” NO MORE APARTMENT LIVING IN 2018!

Baby Daddy Season is Over…

First of all, this post isn’t about bashing or putting down anyone! It’s all about respect and both parties learning and knowing how to respect the other person and having boundaries!

Let’s begin:

Have you ever heard the saying “you teach people how to treat you?” My uncle told me something similar years ago; and I always remember his words. Especially when I find myself in a situation where someone isn’t fully respecting me, my time; my space, etc.

As a single mom I shouldn’t have to accommodate; baby daddy and make his life easier! It doesn’t work that way; it’s suppose to be treated like a partnership; 50-50; right?

Without telling all my business and making him look like a real deadbeat; I will share some of what I am constantly going through with this dude; because I know other single moms can relate!

He says he will get the kids this day or that day and then at the last minute; he can’t get them anymore! There have been numerous times he didn’t even say anything; he just didn’t show! Each time I have had to pick the pieces of my boys hearts up off the floor; me not him! I have to deal with their anger of why he didn’t come and get them; me not him!

So over the years I have had to take a stand and say no more! I have a back up option just in case he doesn’t show up; so their hearts aren’t completely crushed! This recent incident I gave him the common courtesy to work out a day that I could drive them halfway to him (because he never wants to drive the whole way) and he never responded! So I got my back up plan in place and it was smooth sailing until 3 days later; he wants to respond and tell me not ask, this is when I can get them. Excuse me sir; we have plans and we aren’t changing them to accommodate you!

How dare I do that? It’s sad, but after all these years this guy still doesn’t respect me and never will! I understand this and realized this years ago! You control how people treat you! You can’t continue to allow people to walk over you and use you as their door mate!

Have you heard this saying? “You reap what you sow!” This is another saying that I keep in the back of my mind; and it applies to all of us. I can only control what I do and how I react to things. Am I being difficult; no I am just asking for the same courtesy; respect!

Even though he doesn’t respect me; I respect myself. I put those boundaries in place and he can’t cross them; because I am in control of my thoughts and how I react!

How many of us; as single moms, have bent over backwards to accommodate baby daddies; who don’t respect us or care how they hurt our children when they don’t do right?

When will it stop?

I had a pastor tell me; I should do everything in my power so my kids can see their father! Really, when he doesn’t even want to lift a hand? When he doesn’t respond to a simple text or call? When he goes out of his way not to pay child support? I’m sorry; who is that helping?

This is the reality of so many women, single moms and their kids! This is the life we live; not the life we have chosen….

#SpiritualSundays Let Me Show You The Ways: Guest Blogger Ms Angie Bee

How many different ways can you show love to someone?  Well, during the holiday season we show love by giving lavish gifts, or inviting others over for a fabulous meal.  There are others that give money or make travel plans, and others simply enjoy time off “work”.

I get excited when I hear that people go through transitions during holiday seasons.  Babies are born, folks get engaged or married and others leave us to go live in heaven.  My mom moved to heaven on the Monday after Thanksgiving in 1999 and I love her for that…

Now, let us talk about hospitality during the holiday season.  Now THAT can be a challenge for some families!  Not only do you have to cook for the multitudes, but in some cases you need to clean up and decorate your guest room to accommodate out of town guests.  Money needs to be spent, arrangements need to be made and grumbling can be heard. “Why do I have to give up my room to Uncle Charlie?” “It’s too hot to sleep on the porch!”  “Your flight arrives at WHAT time?!”  The complaints can be heard far and wide!

This may be a stretch for some of you but what about those women that give up their babies to another family during the holidays?  That must be an incredible feeling… to receive a new member of your family from a “perfect stranger”?  WOW!  What an amazing gift of love!  I know that my eldest daughter was born a week before Thanksgiving in 1990 and MAN we had a lot to be grateful for that year!  WOW!

I love God, and I really mean what I say.  He gave us an entire book of love and called it The Bible.  It’s filled with instructions for our lives to make our time on Earth easier to bear.  God’s book is filled with true love stories – like the story that tells us that he sent His ONLY son to be born, to live and to die for US!  I wouldn’t give ANY of my children to ANYONE else for ANY REASON!  I mean, I appreciate my fellow man but YOU CAN’T HAVE MY CHILDREN!  Hmmph   God loved us more than I can imagine, and He sent His only son for us.  That’s love.

God also taught us how to show love to others!  His word teaches us in

1 Peter 4:9-10 ESV  – Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace:

Hebrews 13:2 ESV – Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

1 Corinthians 13:8 ESV – Love never ends…

Love and Hospitality go hand-in-hand during the holidays.  Don’t forget that friend or neighbor that showed you love in the past?  They could have been an Angel!  Now, go be an Angel to someone else this holiday season and show them your hospitality.  Be grateful for your life, your health, your family and for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that was born, lived, died and was resurrected JUST FOR YOU!

The Butterfly Effect: Shedding The Old Skin…#SpiritualSundays

 

The Butterfly Effect: Shedding the Old Skin

 

#SpritualSundays

 

2 Corinthians 5:17

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new”. (NKJV)

butterfly hatching

Have you ever wondered how a caterpillar sheds its old skin and then becomes a butterfly? Anyone that really knows me will know that I am terrified of butterflies! I don’t know why but ever since I was a child I would run when I saw them or when they got anywhere near me. Visiting my dad just a few months ago one got close to me and I was out; he laughed and said, “you got to be kidding me; you’re still scared of them?” I almost laughed at myself but then I had to think about it; what was I afraid of and how could I move past it?

Sometimes to fully understand or comprehend something you should put on your investigative hat and do some research; so, I decided to dive in; care to join me?

First, I wanted to find out how do butterflies even come into play? I learned in elementary that caterpillars turn into butterflies (by the way I don’t care for caterpillars either or anything creepy and crawly!) and they go through stages to become a butterfly; but what were those stages?

butterfly_2

First stage: Egg

Second stage: Caterpillar or Larva (The Feeding Stage)

Third stage: Pupa (The Transition Stage)

Adult: Butterfly (The Reproductive Stage)

The whole process is called metamorphosis which in Greek means “transformation or change in shape” (The Academy of Natural Sciences: Drexel University)

And this is where scripture comes into play; let’s look at 2 Corinthians 5:17 again; you are a new creation and the old things have gone away (paraphrased). How do you become a new creation? How do you rid of the old person, old ways, old habits, old language, old reflexes, old tendencies, old temptations; and become new and improved?

caterpillar

Just like a caterpillar you enter metamorphosis and become transformed! Romans 12:2 says this “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will”. (NIV)

When you were conceived you were just an egg that had to be developed; when you began to grow inside your mother’s womb; you had to be properly fed and receive proper nutrients to develop vital parts and organs (caterpillar), to be full term you are there for 9 months and protected not only by the womb but also another protective layer (pupa) due to being precious cargo. When it is time to be born (you shed the old skin and take on a new skin); you are handed to the one that carried you during the transition stages and will continue to guide you through the rest of your life (adult).

How different are our life stages from a butterfly? What do you think is going on through the pupa stages that differs from a human baby; how does that tie into being a new creation (Christian-follower of Jesus-born again)? Can you go to the club on Saturday and be in church on Sunday praising Him? Can you still be committing adultery and ushering people to their seats on Sunday morning? Can you still be going to the strip club and serving as a Youth Leader on Sundays? Can you wish harm on others and still pray for God to bless you? “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon [money, possessions, fame, status, or whatever is valued more than the Lord]”. Matthew 6:24 (AMP)

Growth and change takes time; but you should be involved and committed to the full process! You can’t say you Luv God and don’t act like it! You can’t say you’re a born-again Christian and don’t fully represent Him! You can’t say touch not my anointed and you’re living like you’re from the demon family!

If you’re aspiring to be a part of the Kingdom of the Most High; then your old man/woman has to be shredded and shed! Throughout the stages of becoming a butterfly; caterpillars shed their old skin and come out beautifully and wonderfully made! Need I say anymore?

butterfly_1

So many of us are claiming to be born-again, Christian, saved, sanctified and filled with The Holy Ghost but who are you representing? Anyone that makes a statement isn’t doing so under oath and therefore how do we take it to be truth?

So as I reflected on my fear of butterflies I had to check myself! How can I claim to be a child of the Most High and fearful; not only that but fearful of something that He created? “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]”. 2 Timothy 1:7 (AMP)

“Cussin’ – Bad Words – WTF and #*!@?” #SpiritualSundays

When I was, a kid attending Frederick J. Schulze Elementary School in Detroit Michigan, my classmates would use “Bad Words: while whispering to each other.  The “cool” kids would say these “bad words” during conversation, but even the cool kids would avoid allowing their hushed voices to be heard by the teacher.  I wonder if the grown-ups at the school ever knew that some of the kids spoke these words?

Check out the audio version of this blog here: 

Once I hit Beaubien Jr. High school, the “Bad words” evolved into cussin’ and the hushed voices grew louder and became more direct toward certain classmates.  I frequently found myself being the target of some of that language as the class bullies seemed to resent everything I wore, everything I smiled about and every “A” that I earned.  I knew that I wasn’t a B-I-T-C-H, but just having that word slung in my direction stung a bit more, each time I heard it.

I grew up attending and being blessed by memberships in two Detroit churches.  I was baptized and raised at Beth Eden Missionary Baptist Church, and at the age of twelve my spiritual growth enlarged through my membership at Hartford Memorial Baptist Church.  Now, I don’t know about other churches or other religions but I do know that EVERY BAPTIST CHURCH I have ever attended always leads you in a song that goes a little something like this:

 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer – Amen, Amen, Amen.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=885otfEQ9Ug

Now, did I know that song that we sang was a scripture?  Nope!  Did I know that while singing that song in church, I was basically saying out loud that I wanted the words that came out of my mouth to be acceptable to God?  Nope!  “DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE WORDS THAT ARE COMING OUT OF MY MOUTH?!” 

Once I “grew up” and lived on the college campus, I cussed “like a sailor” because I was “GROWN!” My mama wasn’t around to smack me in the mouth and everybody else on the campus of Wilberforce University was cussing’ too!  That’s when one of the professors mentioned a study that has stuck with me all these years later.  Now, don’t quote me on it but the study said something about the use of vulgar language reflecting the ignorance and poor vocabulary skills of the word cussin’.  Well, I was a communications major and I planned to have a career in radio, so I wasn’t about to reflect ignorance coming out of my mouth!  After that lesson, cuss words only flew out of my mouth during stress or frustration… and even then, I was ashamed afterwards.

These days I will see posts on social media with letters such as “WTF” or “LMFAO”.  These letters are sometimes even posted in a sentence meant to bring humor or accolades, but once I see that letter “F” or letter “A” in there, I get a little sad.  As an adult, we now refer to this language as “Profanity” and although it is no longer directed at me, I still shudder when I hear it spoken; just hearing swear words can make me sad.

 “A group of researchers from Kno.e.sis Research CenterWright State University near Dayton Ohio studied why people swear in the online world by collecting tweets posted on Twitter. They found that cursing is associated with negative emotions such as sadness (21.83%) and anger (16.79%) thus showing people in the online world mainly use curse words to express their sadness and anger towards others.[20][21]” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Profanity)

You see, our words reflect what is growing on the inside of us.  Kinda like if you ate something last night that doesn’t agree with your tummy, you will find yourself on the toilet by the next morning.  That mess was on the inside of you, so it came out.  Cussin’ reflects something rotten inside of you, so it falls out of your mouth just as easily as that diarrhea plopped outta your butt!

Profanity – offensive words or religious words used in a way that shows you do not respect God or holy things – http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/profanity

My mama was a holy thing when she lived on Earth.  Even though our mama cussed, I didn’t cuss around my mama (I didn’t want to get a spanking, so that motivated me to keep my mouth clean!).  My husband is a holy thing as he represents the way God loves me in this season of my life.  I don’t cuss around my husband. Just looking at him reminds me that I am loved and respected and appreciated, so I don’t have a reason to cuss him out! (lol).  I am a temple of the Lord and I invite the Lord to live inside me.  I don’t cuss around my temple…I don’t cuss around myself.  I love myself and respect myself, so I don’t cuss in my conversations or in my writings.

Wikipedia reflects that “profanity has come to mean any socially offensive language beyond that strictly religious sense, but tends to exclude any other nonverbal communication. Thus profanity in English may be synonymous with bad language, strong language, coarse language, foul language, bad words, vulgar language, lewd language, choice words or expletives“. – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Profanity

On the Sunday, November 20, 2016 ministry broadcast from Pastor Ron Carpenter, he taught that there was a lesson in the bible where a group of people had been led by Moses to a place where they were to drink water.  When the people tasted the water, they found that it tasted bitter and later, scientists tested the water and determined that the bitter taste was the result of a laxative component that would help flush your system.  Ron Carpenter offered that God led those people to the water to get that bad taste of their past slavery out of their systems. http://www.roncarpenter.com/on-demand/detox/

 

What do you need to get out of your system?  

If you don’t get it out spiritually, it will fly out of your mouth offensively.

(Thank you, Jesus!)

On the Sunday, November 20, 2016 broadcast from Pastor Jesse Duplantis, he taught on first fruits and on giving God your best.  He visually taught that God gave us HIS first fruit in that he gave us His first son.  Why don’t we give God our best language of respect, praise and gratitude and cleanse our minds and our tongues from foul language?  Why don’t we give OURSELVES our first fruit of a sweet language on our lips and not the bitter words that fly out and offend?

God gave us his best when he gives us his grace and mercy and when God spoke, he created wonders and lifestyles and an home for us!  When we speak to the waitress, she brings out the best meal that can be prepared for us.  When you hear those words “I Love You”… do you want to hear a cuss word thrown in that statement?!?

Today, let us all strive to “clean up our act” and mentally “wash our mouths out with soap”.  Listen to the lyrics of the music you are feeding into your ears.  Is it laced with profanity and sexual references?  How does that make you feel?  Do you find yourself quoting those lyrics?  Would you want someone referring to you in the way those lyrics refer to another in that song?

Today, let us all strive to replace one curse word at a time with a new vocabulary word in our speech and in our writings.  “WTF” can now be “WITW” (What In The World?” comes from my anointed daughter Jasmine…thanks Princess!)  I prefer ROTFLOL to LMFAO (why do I have to refer to myself as FAT, anyway!  Hmmph).  Today, let us be a “Shining Light of Language” (SLOL) for someone else while we are talking to them; when they realize that each word coming from your mouth is positive and encouraging… they may catch on and repeat your example!

Who Are You Raising? #SpiritualSundays

With so much going on in the world today; I thought this would be a good topic to reflect on! I had to get my approach in the right place and get my emotions in check before I touched on the subject and hopefully it will reach someone.

Proverbs 22: 6 says this “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it“. (NKJV)

Society is always saying that it starts at home!

Who are you raising? Are you raising your children to become strong young boys and young ladies that can be respectful and considerate of others? That will show others kindness and love? That will be compassionate to those in need and empathize with situations even if they don’t comprehend the full reality? Kids grow up to become adults and we have to remember while it may start at home; it continues into adulthood! (Something to think about).

Who are you connected to?

John 15: 5I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me and I in him, bears much fruit; for without me you can do nothing.” (NKJV)

I can honestly say; I have never received a call thus far about any of my children from teachers about them disrupting their class at school or being disrespectful. All of their teachers have always praised them for being good kids.

Now at home may be a different story! Lol they are in their element; their natural habitat around family and are bound to show out! When they leave out that door I have always raised and taught them to be on their best behavior! They not only represent themselves but their parent(s). What parent wants to know their child is acting a fool out in public? In society where there is criticism every way you turn? You can raise good kids but once they walk out that door with their friends and break loose and things get out of hand; they are looked upon as a villain, thug, terrorist; what have you because society likes to use labels. They could be on their way to the movies, store, mall, school, sporting event, work etc and still be considered a threat.

Please open the book and read; before you judge!

In some cases the label may be in fact a true character example; but what about when it’s not? Some of us will believe what we are told with doing absolutely no research or investigation of our own! The news says that he had a gun; he was robbing someone, he was out there selling drugs!

John 15: 18-19If the world hates you, you know that it hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” (NKJV)

5 Things That Can Change the World We Live In

1. Manners: Are you teaching them about using manners? These are so important to instill in our children; it goes along way! Hello. Thank you. How are you? Excuse me. I’m sorry. Very simple words can change the world; don’t you agree?

2. Compassion/Sympathy:  Are you teaching them about compassion and sympathy? I don’t know  or haven’t experienced what you have; but I’m still sorry for what you are going through (this is how we are to respond to what others are facing or may be facing; we don’t assume or point fingers).

3. Empathy: Are you teaching them about empathy? You put yourself in the shoes of others; you try to understand their feelings, situations what have you. You give and show your support; not criticize what you don’t know.

4. Color Blind: Are you teaching them that we all come in different shades of color; and that we are all still the same? We bleed the same blood? We cry the same tears? We all feel pain? Have you taught them that?

5. Love: Are you teaching them to love themselves as well as others? So many of our children are growing up unloved! They become adults whom don’t know how to love or be loved? Do you tell them that you love him or her?

Prayer Has Never Hurt Anybody!

Heavenly Father there is so much going on in the world today; Father help us! There is so much hatred, heartache and pain! Father we need you! We need your protection Lord, the enemy has been very busy; our children, our fathers, our sisters, our brothers. Cover us Lord like only you can; block the enemy and keep us far from his reach. In the mighty name of your son Jesus! Amen.
