Obedience Pleases the Father

Have you ever gotten chased by a dog? I haven’t but have come pretty close to it. I remember growing up and walking down the alley to get to a friend’s house. It seemed like all of my neighbors had dogs. I would walk down the alley and hear all of the dogs barking butContinue reading “Obedience Pleases the Father”

Worry Less, Pray More!

Have you ever been anxious and afraid? I have. Two weeks ago I had to go back to the building to teach my students face to face. I hadn’t been in the school since March 2020 and now Atlanta Public Schools had decided that teachers were to return to work in person. Sunday came andContinue reading “Worry Less, Pray More!”

Listen! Mute Your Mic

I love the profession of teaching. I have always wanted to be a teacher since the age of six. I remember going to work with my momma and sitting in the back of the classroom watching her teach 25 second-graders at Brunswick Elementary School located in Gary, Indiana. She would stand in front of theContinue reading “Listen! Mute Your Mic”

The Perfect Gentleman: Jesus Christ

God is such a gentleman. He always opens doors for me. (lambmarie/pinterest) I just love living down south. The weather is beautiful and you can definitely buy a lot of house for a little money. I especially like the way people speak to you in passing, even if you don’t know them. I remember whenContinue reading “The Perfect Gentleman: Jesus Christ”

Salt: A Flavoring Agent

I don’t know about you, but I enjoy cooking. Some of my favorite dishes to cook are macaroni and cheese, turkey meatloaf, black-eyed peas, collard greens, and cabbage. I especially like cooking now since I recently purchased the Ninja Foodi Grill.  It has 5 functions: grill, air crisp, bake, roast and dehydrate. I find myselfContinue reading “Salt: A Flavoring Agent”

A Promise Keeper

Last year around this time I had been pretty busy visiting friends for the holidays. I had driven to Tennessee to spend Christmas with my friend. The drive was very picturesque. I loved looking at the beautiful hills and mountains as I was driving. The weather was great and I was looking forward to visitingContinue reading “A Promise Keeper”

Patience: The Fruit of the Spirit

“Patience is not the ability to wait. Patience is to be calm no matter what happens, constantly take action to turn it into positive growth opportunities, and have faith to believe that it will all work out in the end while you are waiting.”  Roy T. Bennett One of my least favorite things to doContinue reading “Patience: The Fruit of the Spirit”

A Prayer of Thanksgiving

Thanks, gratitude, and appreciation are all words that come to mind around this time of the year. Actually, every day should be a day of thanksgiving; God has been good to me and I know that He has been good to you as well. All we need to do is look back over our livesContinue reading “A Prayer of Thanksgiving”

A Chance to REST

Last month was an amazing month. I got a chance to see my old college friends from fall 1988 at Tuskegee University. They came to Atlanta and stayed with me. They were celebrating their 50th birthdays and Tuskegee’s virtual homecoming. They began to arrive on Thursday and left Monday evening. We had planned this weekendContinue reading “A Chance to REST”
