A New Day


Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Wow, Wow, Wow, is all I can say for this fantastic and spectacular year of 2014. I have had so many wonderful things going on I don't even know where to start. I have moved into my own place since March (something I have been wanting to do for many years), I have been on a local TV show, I have sang a duet on the stage at my church (huge honor and blessing), I have spoken at my local Chamber of Commerce and a local high school, I just won best speaker for my first speech at Toastmasters and God has healed my broken heart and made it whole again. I love my friends and family like never before. I am excited about the future and what the future is to bring. Thankful and grateful for all those that have stood by my side, loving me and encouraging me to keep moving forward. I don't know where I would be without them. I am in awe of God's loving kindness towards me and I look forward to helping others see His love. So many years I listened to the thoughts of defeat...."Nobody will ever love me, I was damaged goods, my life is over because of my past decisions and mistakes". But I made a decision to believe who God said I already was and that was the day my life began. That was my "new day". I pray this is a new day for you. A day that you look at yourself and accept who you are and still say I love you and embrace every wonderful thing about you, whether it is good or bad. Because It is a new day for you, which will turn into a new life for you if you embrace it.

Don't Judge a Cake by the Outside


Monday, September 8, 2014

I was visiting my mother a couple of Sunday's ago and she mentioned to me not to judge a person by the outside. I  recall looking over at a delicious cherry cream cheese pound cake my mom made and asked could I have a slice. She said sure, but that cake had fallen so it might not look the same as normal. My mom was initially concerned when she took the cake out that it wasn't cooked all the way through. But when she cut into it she was pleasantly surprised because the cake was fully cooked. I said it looked normal to me and it still looked like it would taste good. Even though it was a simple lesson on that Sunday afternoon it actually followed me throughout the day, which was don't judge a book by the cover.

Earlier at church I was sitting next to a woman that I had never met. At first she seemed a little cold to me. I almost didn't want to introduce myself, but I did. She also introduced herself and that was pretty much it. Later that night at church she comes over to me and asked me the name of a song we sang earlier that day in choir. I told her and while we talking she seemed to open up more, smile and laugh with me. Maybe she was just shy earlier that day and that is why she was more reserved, but by the end of the conversation she said she may even join the choir. That was lesson #1 for the day. Had I judged that woman I would not have found out how sweet she was, she seemed to be just a little shy.

Later that night I experienced lesson #2 while at church I saw a woman that I have known for years. She is very sweet and by looking at her you would think what problems could she possibly have. She ended up sitting next to me and she was crying. She asked me how was I doing and I told her great and how excited I was about the new year. Then she said that she had a horrible three years and that she had walked away from God in her heart. But this particular night, God touched her and she felt how much God loved her. This lesson taught me that you may think you are the only one that has problems and really dealing with anything, but I saw this woman that appeared to be strong, had actually been broken in her heart for the last few years.

The lesson of the fallen cake was when you see people, you don't know what's going on the inside. They could be the most godly person inside and had a bad day. They could have suffered a great loss or lost a job. No matter what goes on in life always love people and believe the best about others. Because you may be pleasantly surprised when you get to know people because they just may be sweet on the inside and out.

Until we meet again.

Stepping Out


Wednesday, April 16, 2014

It's been awhile since I have posted anything, but I have accomplished several goals while I have been away. :) Right now, I am finally going to share with people my story. Keep on the look out for my website. It will be up in the next week or so. This has been something I have been wanting to do for over 8 years and I finally see it will be accomplished. Just because a dream delays doesn't mean it wasn't meant to happen for you. Sometimes you need to heal inside, sometimes its not the right time or you need to gain the wisdom and knowledge for your dream. I have had huge set backs even in most recent years, but I keep moving forward. I keep running, persevering, enduring no matter what it takes to become who I truly am inside. I encourage you ladies to step out of your comfort zone, step out of your past, step out and step into YOU! Who you already are.
