See I Would……But

You see I would get upset but

You see I would cry but

You see I would get mad but

You see I would shout but

You see I would stress but

You see I would cave but

You see I would retaliate but

You see I would be hurt but

You see I could but I won’t

The way my faith is set up

God has everything under control

He has a flawless track record

Things can only get better

Good Police Officers

In light of all the police brutality and all the racial tension that’s causes a lot more division I decided to write about a great police officer. I didn’t know her personally I would talk to her a lot she was a police officer at the Norfolk International Airport where we both worked. My job was not as cool as hers I worked at Hudson News which is a newspaper stand basically.

Every time I saw her she was in a great mood she was never rude to me ever. I remember one day she told me that she was thinking about leaving the airport. The airport did not have that much that was going on, it was pretty slow she wanted to help more people. The officer that I am talking about name was Sheila Herring. Ms Herring was a Marine Corps Veteran who working on the Detroit, Michigan police department for ten years and later the Norfolk International Airport. As I have mentioned she went from Detroit to the Norfolk airport and decided to work for the Norfolk police department. On January 16, 2003 Ms Herring had been working on the Norfolk Police department for less than a year when she and a few other others responded to a shooting at a sports bar in Norfolk. When Ms Herring and officers walked up a man started shooting, she was shot twice once in the abdomen under her bullet proof vest. At the age of 39 less than an hour later of being rushed to the hospital she died from her wounds. She wasn’t a bad cop but a good person who died in the line of duty. I don’t even think that she had children.

There are a lot of good cops out here doing their jobs. I just was thinking of her and just wanted to blog about the good officers that are out here risking their lives on a daily basis for us all.

The Most High God

Indeed it takes different strokes to move the world. Everybody’s got a special kind of story. Everybody finds a way to shine. I shine because of the Most High God. I was talking on the phone with someone and the person was like when a person says  Thank You God which one are they talking about? Whatchu talkin bout??? I don’t know about anyone else but I serve only one God the true God He goes by many names like counseller, The Mighty God, best friend, Provider, Yahweh, He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! That’s the God whom I worship and know that No Other God Has His Power!! I know of no other God. Don’t get me to preaching about the various people in the Bible who worshipped powerless gods remember pharaoh? Pharaoh god did nothing mine helped Moses to part the red sea, not to mention the numerous testimonies that I continue to have up until this very day. So just in case people question or wants to know about the God that I  speak of hopefully what I just wrote is enough. My God who is the Most High is the one that I love and adore. My God is an awesome God! Just lettinchu know who I am talkin bout.

Please Stop

I’m not complaining just voicing how it’s hard to be a Christian that’s a black woman. With all the police brutality that’s been going on against young black men there has been a lot of hostility. When I voice how I feel I get attacked and I’m okay with that.  I get called names and made to feel as if I am betraying my race. I’m a Christian first I speak love and peace. I spread positive messages because let’s face it anything that negative like riots and violence gets us no way. The point that I am making is bring up past events is meaningless if they are not accompanied with positive resolutions. Everyone is shouting and no one is listening. White people along with other races have been victims of police brutality as well. One case of police brutality is too much it has to stop.

Praying for all seven continents and every nationality. The violence needs to end. If we all pull together to we can make a difference it can happen in a major way. I know that we can do it.

New Season

Yaaaaaaay!! It’s the first day of fall!!! Fall is my favorite season. I am constantly amazed at God’s work. There are four seasons and all four of them has unique characters that set them apart from one another. Fall is sweater weather, crisp air, colorful leaves, anndddd pumpkins!!!! I love everything of pumpkins like pie, creamer and coffee. As you can tell I am thankful for the beautiful fall season. Even though fall comes the same time every year I still love celebrating its return. Loving the change in the air. There are so many things to be amazed about when I think of all of God’s work.

Michel’le

As I always I share about how I absolutely love all music growing up I listened to everything including NWA one of its members brought out Michel’le. Growing up I was no different from other kids I’d get hooked on a song’s beats and did not pay attention to the lyrics. NWA was one of the hip hop groups who had a lack of respect for women big time. The saddest part is some of us black women continue to support negative music and get upset about the affects of it. I read a post that was quite disturbing it was basically making up excuses for artists who choose their lyrics blaming the environment. Here’s an idea try writing something more positive and uplifting hip hop was once that way a very long time ago.

Michel’le debut album was titled Michel’le the song no more lies was one of my favorites. It’s amazing how we feel that celebrities are so much different from us but they are not….they are human too with problems just like the rest of us sometimes more. She has a movie that’s coming out in October on Lifetime and yes I will be watching it. There are a lot of critics talking about this movie but it’s all good.It’s important to be able to tell our own story no one else knows it better but God.
