2020 Gifting With Purpose Guide

Exercise: Define 2020 in three words silently to yourself. I am positive we would each come up with different answers. Some may say “This has been the most progressive year of my life.” Some may say “I can’t wait for it to be over. I cannot take anymore”. Every person’s feelings and perspective is valid […]

Reminders from God’s Calendar

Monday night before bed, I reviewed my monthly goals. Goals are easier to chew when you take a bite each day. Say no to overindulgence, my friends. I said to myself, “When I wake up, I’m going to do this, this and this.” Gratefully, the sun rose and I had another chance to strive towards […]

Dreams and Nightmares

As little kids, we are always encouraged to dream. In fact, to DREAM BIG.

What ever happened to soul food? I’m not talking about the collard greens, the cornbread, the yams, or the dressing.

Things I Found in a Hotel Room

It’s been raining all week. The cold has stuck to glass windows as the wind paired the rain to every object in sight. Some love the rain, many despise it. The ones who love the rain see the cleansing. The ones who hate it see their plans deferred or adjustments to schedules they initially didn’t […]

A Time to Love

*Nature’s alarm clock wakes me up* at 7:00AM and it’s my birthday. There’s a sense of anxiousness entangled with excitement as I welcome this new chapter. Page 1 or should I say Page 7? Either way, I’m ready. Four days before, I gathered my faithful family in a dimmed lit, high end restaurant to commence […]

Death

Sometimes I wonder if it’s better than life Not here to witness everyday let downs and despair Death You’ve taken my friend, my grandmother, and my paw paw and my uncle Why do you come so soon Why do you come in the midst of joy Death I’m sitting on my friend’s grave Wondering if […]
