As we were loading up the vehicles to go out and have a cookout with our homeless brothers and sisters this morning, Sis. Elaine Hopkins stopped me, gave me a tight hug and placed this photo in my hand. Needless to say, I was moved to tears. The date on the back of this photo says 8/7/11, but the love that you see in this photo cannot be confined to a date...or a photo... or words, for that matter. I understand that this weekend is set aside to remember those who have sacrificed their lives for our country, but it is always important to remember the ONE who gave HIS Life, so that we may inherit the Kingdom... & my grandmother represented HIM wherever she went... in the lobby of the doctor's office, the food court at Costco's, my Mom's job, you name it. She evangelized EVERYWHERE & it is taking the whole family to fill one of her shoes... and there is still room to spare, lol. Love you and Miss you Mama! Until we meet again in glory! #mama #myheartisfull #restinpeace #forhisglory #bmorelikechrist #philippians121 #reallove #3generations #legacy #likemotherlikedaughter #agranddaughterslove

After spending the last half hour beating up on myself for the extra insulation I have picked up around my waist πŸ™„ the Holy Spirit convicted me. If we would take half of the time and energy we spend in measuring ourselves up to society's superficial standards of perfection and invest that time, energy, and passion in comparing ourselves to GOD's standards of righteousness, how much more peace would we have? How much more rich would our lives be? For "Charm is deceitful, and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised" - Proverbs 31:30. #dobetter #proverbs31 #bodyshaper #moretolove #watchoutforthebiggirl #workinprogress

"I'll always love my Mama... she's my favorite girl!" Brunch and gifts for Mom after worship service. When you think about it, it's a measly way of saying thank you for one that gave you life. Mom, you sacrificed so much, and continue to do so. I know I can never repay you or find an adequate way of saying thank you, but I pray you see my heart when I tell you that I love you. You truly mean the world to me, and I could not ask for a better mother. Honored to be your daughter. #happymothersday P.S. don't mind my Dad's silly faces, and my brother could care less about our impromptu photo shoot lol. I love my fam man! Lol

I often find myself frustrated when the media depicts the black race and culture as homogeneous. Even more frustrating is our response. While many of us complain about sterotypes, we subconsciously endorse them every time we crucify anyone that looks like us but does not fit a prototype--dismissing their authenticity or pride by claiming that they "talk" or "act white". There is room for unity and diversity in our collective identity as a people. Sure society can have a generic understanding of who we are, but one must search our hearts before truly coming to know us. #randomrant #toomuchforig #backtomindingmybusiness #asyouwere

Had to see my baby off again, this time for his senior prom. Love you little cuz! Time is flying by entirely too fast, but I cherish these moments and I'm so proud of the man you are becoming. Praying that you remain focus! Enjoy your night with your beautiful date! 😘 @iupatii (we're all looking at different cameras lmbo πŸ‘€πŸ‘€πŸ‘€) #prom2k17 #prom2017 #hoodcollege2021 #proudbigcousin

And for today's forecast we can expect to see lukewarm temperatures and cloudy judgment. Smh. James 1:22 "But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves." #dobetter #christrepresenter
