Revitalized.


 

I’m back!! Man it’s good to be back to blogging and pour my thoughts out to the wonderful world of the internet! Those who still follow me, thank you for still following me. I took the summer off to recoup, and to revitalize. I believe every man and woman of God needs to just stop and listen. This is what I have done all summer and into the fall, stop and listen. As you know I lost my job back in June, with the opportunity to draw unemployment for the first time in my life, I took it.

The summer was really awesome, though I didn’t go anywhere special by the world’s standards, I  took the time to gain strength and heal. I was hurting for a while after I lost my job because I really enjoyed it. When the day came when they took me to HR and told me I was being let go because of budget cuts, I was crushed. Basically for the fact that it was the second job in 8 years that I lost a job, and I started to get a little depressed. This, as I found out was normal, to hurt like this, so I started to heal. Healing ment drawing on the strength of the Lord and listening.

One thing that I realized and a lot of people are this way, we think the job title will make everything better. The title given to us in our careers has a tendency of giving us a “big head.” The world tells us that we have to be this and that to succeed, and we need the materials in our lives to feel good and to be popular.  I was getting caught in this trap as well, and God stopped me.  When He stopped me, I had realized that God has to be the center of my life at all time, if not, I get caught up in the worlds pathetic lies and glamour.

I am revitalized today with a fresh perspective of life and most importantly God. With a clean vision and fresh eyes, I believe great things are about to happen.  I plan on slowly working my way back into blogging, so I’ll have a new post, hopefully 3-4 times a week. I have been away for a while, and anyone who has followed me and reading my blogs knows that I speak my mind and don’t water anything down; well that hasn’t changed and I have a lot of fresh stuff in the upcoming days and weeks.

Again, thank you for still following me and as always Be Blessed!!!!

Spring and Ice Cream.

It’s Almost SPRING!!!

          Its March!!! Which means, it’s almost SPRING!!! This is by far my favorite time of the year because this is when we see Gods artistic ability in full force. The changing of the leaves, the green grass, warmer temperature and of course, ice cream. As some of you already know, other than being a Christian, these are my two favorite things, spring and ice cream. God wasn’t messing around when He came up with these two, that’s for sure. Now living in Michigan sometimes plays games on us, because most of the time we don’t know what the weather will be like until we wake up, one day it can be 70 and beautiful, and the next day a full on sought blizzard.

      The Spring for me means a fresh start to get things right. Which I love because I often mess things up everyday, so I need a fresh start. Being a Christian allows me the opportunity for a fresh start everyday, true story, but for me, the change of weather helps out a great deal.Watching the leaves in the trees turn colors and people’s attitudes always seem to change when the weather changes as well. Like a woman in all her splendor and beauty, so is God in all His glory.

      This time of the year I love walking by the river in her majestic force, feeding the ducks, and sometimes, almost getting attacked by them, and yes there just happens to be an ice cream stand right around the corner. To me, ice cream says it all, and a lot of company’s unveil new kinds of ice cream in the spring as well. That’s my favorite, trying new kinds of ice cream, like the other night I had Chocolate covered cherry and chocolate ice cream, lets just say it made me tingle! Last year a well-known company in Michigan came out with a Blueberry Cobbler ice cream and lets just say I didn’t share with anyone.

        I love the way you can really smell spring, I mean come mid to late march, you can really start to feel it to. Not always is it nice though, sometime it rains and in good ol Michigan, its been known to snow all the way till April, but to me it’s still Spring. I enjoy these things because I can. Not just because I’m single, but because today, I am alive in Christ. He is the reason I can enjoy it because He saved me from the pit of hell I used to dance in. He took me by the hand and said “Come” and I haven’t looked back.

      Before I came to the Lord, i hated the warm weather because I would get dehydrated faster with all the alcohol I would put down my throat. After a night of hard-drinking and chasing woman, stepping out in the hot air was the last thing I wanted to do. Not today though. I love the warmer temps and the beauty that comes with it.

    Thanks for reading!!!!!! Be Blessed!!!!!!
