SHORT AND SWEET #13: AFFIRMATIONS FOR SUCCESS

As I continue to meditate on making the right choices, and bringing blessings into my life, I consider Reverand John Wesley, an English theologian, evangelist, cleric, and leader in the Methodist movement, who is credited with some pretty phenomenal words: “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all theContinue reading “SHORT AND SWEET #13: AFFIRMATIONS FOR SUCCESS”

I FOUND A HACK FOR THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

And it is Helping Me Reprioritize Things Once upon a time, people wanted to live under a set of laws, so God spoke to Moses and thus, the Ten Commandments. Perhaps those people figured that if they had a list of things to do and not to do, they would obey God (not sin andContinue reading “I FOUND A HACK FOR THE TEN COMMANDMENTS”

FOR BETTER OR WORSE, THE CHOICE IS OURS

Roe v. Wade Implications in Black and White. Part 1 July 2, 2022 Dear Reader, What a few weeks we’ve had! Our American climate has been as erratic as a tornado, with no visible calm before the storm.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY

Today, we Americans celebrate the Fourth of July and the words penned by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence that on July 2, 1776, we were free from tyranny.

FAVORITE TV OR MOVIE DADS

Since FATHER’S DAY is Sunday, June 19 👔I figured I’d celebrate them for the rest of the month. Why stop at the 19th when I did not start on the first? Right?

LIVING ON PURPOSE

Changing the World Dear Reader, Purpose could be best defined as glorifying God by doing what God says. That is what Jesus did, right? Therefore, if I want to make the world a better place than I found it, then I must be an active disciple (someone who imitates Jesus’ practices). I have to liveContinue reading “LIVING ON PURPOSE”
