Our Tsunami...

What a scary feeling. Living in Florida, that could have easily been me. You sometimes wonder, why God? But then your heart is humbled and you remember that God's ways nor His thoughts are like ours and we just trust Him because He said that He'll never leave us nor forsake us. No matter what it looks like, the just shall live by faith. I, as I hope all of you will too, will continue to intercede on the behalf of all of these people who have been affected by this natural disaster. I am in awe of what is taking place in the world and yet, these are only signs of what's to come. Who knows how things will be during the Tribulation period. Just today, there are over 700 people that died in Iraq at one time because someone yelled in a crowd that there is a suicide bomber and a stampede began. All I can say is right now is the time to accept Christ. Huh, you are waiting until you straighten yourself out? Stop letting the devil lie to you. It is impossible to straighten yourself out without the help of Jesus. That is the sole purpose of Jesus being spat on, having His flesh ripped from His body, having a crown of thorns mashed into His head, being beaten beyond recognition, being ridiculed and so much more. Jesus came that we may have life and life more abundantly. His blood has cleansed us from all of our sins. This was the plan of our Heavenly Father before the foundation of the world. What, you are a backslidder and you are too ashamed to face God? Well, God's word says that the blood of Jesus cleanseth us. the "th" on the cleanseth means to continually cleanse us. Furthermore, God's word says that NOTHING can seperate us from the love of God. It's all a trick. Today, if you are that prodigal son/daughter or if you have never accepted Christ in your life before, say this simple pray:

Father God, forgive me, for I am a sinner. Cleanse me with the blood of Jesus. I know that Jesus is your son and he died a cruel death so that I may have life everlasting. I also know that you raised Him from the dead and He is now seated on your right-hand side forever in intercession for me. Praying that my faith does not fail. Thank you Lord for creating in me a new creature and giving me a heart like Jesus. We pray these things in Jesus's name.

Welcome home my brother/sister in Christ. Did you know that all of heaven rejoices when one soul is saved.? Heaven is going crazy right about now. God loves us so much saints and He is so forgiving. We have a treasure that was given to us from God and He placed that treausre in our earthly vessels, our bodies. The Treasure is the light of Jesus. God knows that we are in these fleshly bodies and we will go through things but NOTHING is impossible for God. For God goes to and fro amongst the earth looking to show His self strong on our behalf. Now that is good news, halelujah. OK, I'm about to have church up in here. I am just so thankful that God is in control and that our saviour is coming back! Be blessed and remeber to keep your eyes on Jesus.

God, right now, I pray your blessings over your people. I know that you are well aware of the hurt that each and everyone of us feel concerning what is happening in the world right now. Lord, I thank you that it is not in vain that this has happened and that you will get the glory from it. Lord, for all of those who have accepted you as their Lord and Saviour, lead them to a bible-based church where the true spirit of God resides and they can truly be taught of the things of God. Time-out for playing church and acting holy. When they fall or when divers temptations come, take them to the place in your word where you said to count it all joy when we fall into divers temptations because patience is being worked out in our lives and to let patience have it's perfect work so that we will be lacking nothing. Thank you for comforting those who have lose their love ones, their homes and everything else that they have counted dear to them. We know that you are able to do more than we can ask or think as we can refer to Job and all that he went through and how you restored him to have even more than in the beginning. His latter end was greater than his beginning and He wouldn't have known You in the way that he did had he not gone through all of that. Thank you for giving peace that surpaseth all understanding and as we acknowledge you in all of our ways God, we thank you for directing our paths and keeping us in our right minds. In Jesus name, AMEN!

Acid Reflux?

OK, I've been having sporadic chest pains for a minute now, I finally had enough and went to the Dr's today. I really didn't know what to expect, I am only 29 but we never know. I know that my diet sucks and that I need to eat better. I may do OK for about 2 days and then it's like, give me the junk. Anyhow, he ran a EKG, did chest x-rays and praise God, they all came back normal. Now, to just be on the safe side, I have to go back and have some blood work done. My sister said that it may just be acid-reflux and I was like, I'm going to find out for sure before I just think lightly of it. Anyhow, the Dr. was like, I'm going to put you on this medicine etc... From what I could tell, everything came back normal so he was no closer to knowing what was wrong with me. So, I was like, what is the medicine treating? He said something gastro... something. He gave me some Prevacid pills and I looked them up and sure enough they are for Acid Reflux-Disease. Now why couldn't he just say that he believes that I have ARD and that's what he was prescribing the medicine for. Anyhow, I appreciate him being so thourogh in his examiniation. How does this relate to SL's, the nurse, while taking my BP said, "I love your hair" and did a little flip to my hair with her finger. I was like thanks :->

I got my Soc

Let me just say that it is so awesome to see black folks with their own businesses that are based on professionalism, class and awesome customer service. Big ups to Denise Reed, owner of L.B. Soc. I ordered my socs and received them three days later. I added a note to my order that one of the Socs were for my daughter and if she had a juvenille style, please substitute. She emailed me the next day and let me know that she did not have any at the time, but thanks for asking and ordering. Well, I got my Socs and instead of there being the two Socs that I ordered, there were three with a note saying, "Thanks - I'm not sure what age your daughter is but see if she likes this denim one". So, I got three socs for the price of two in her effort to please my daughter. Needless to say, she has my word of mouth advertising! Oh, and it stayed on all night long!

I am trying my darnest to sit here and just be thankful that I am gainfully employed. But...I am counting down the hours, I am so ready to get out of here, ughhhhhhhhh!

Anyhow, I am in dire need of a retightening. My 1st retighten is scheduled for the 3rd of September. I'm still not sure why my consultant wanted to wait so long to retighten, 8 weeks. But...I like the full look that I have with some, well a lot of new growth. My hair is very thick so the parts weren't really an issue for me, thank God. Anyhow, I'll be sure to blog about how my appointment goes time wise and I pray that it won't HURT like it did when they were first put in!

Freestylin until next time,

Beard softner?

A friend of mine wants to soften his beard and make it grow. Any suggestions as to what to use as far as with EO's?

There it lay...

I just ordered by L.B. Soc and I can't wait for it to get here. I hope I'll still be cute, with my scarf, I could walk around the house and be the cutest thing no matter what was up under there, although each morning, there it lay, on the pillow next to my head. I'm sure the Soc will be the bomb from all of the kudoos that I have read about it. I ordered one for my daughter too. Nothing kills me as much as when I have just finished doing her hair for the last two hours and she just starts rolling around everywhere with no regards to all my hard work. All the mamma's of cyber world, you feel me, right?

Still hangin...

I wasn't quite feeling my hair on Friday, it was everywhere doing its own thing. I mainly free-style since I'm so new in my journey. I feel a little better today. My kids can't keep their hands out of it and someone noticed the length that I have gotten already. They were like, " they'll be hanging down to your neck by December". I pray they will anyway. Oh well, I'm just sitting here passing the time waiting for the big 5:00 to come. I can't wait to take my SL class in November. It has been my dream to have my own business since I can remeber and it is closer now than it was yesterday. Priase God for the provision.

Until next time,

It's about time, right...

I have been digesting everyone else's experiences and I feel that I know you all so well. I figured that it is time for me to share too. I am sitting at work and am absolutely bored. After so much schooling, loans and late nights, I am truly unsatisfied and could not imagine myself doing this for 30 more years. I know that God is just preparing me for where He is taking me. My desire is to become a natural hair care specialist. But, I'm a single mom of two beautiful ( I feel like shaking them half of the time) children and I've got to make the doughnuts. So, I have to be patient as the plan is being revealed.

I remember, after I did the BC for the second time within 3 years, everyone was like why did you cut your hair, again. My goodness, it is only hair. Well, at least that's what I thought until I would look in the mirror and I was use to seeing this glamour girl and now I felt like plain Jane. I was self-conscious whenever I was in front of a mirror or someone asked me why I cut my hair. I then noticed that when I was out and about, I hadn't thought about my hair and was full of all of the confidence that I had when I was still addicted. I was like alright then, that's what I'm talking about. I had become comfortable with being free and just me.

Anyhow, I just love to read and see pictures of everyone in cyber world and check periodically for updates. So, if you haven't updated in a while, get with it, we're waiting...... I am a proud member of, my fav,
LockItUp and Brothers_locked, Naturaly You and Natural Hair and Black Women. I'll holler at ya'll soon.
