Writing What Matters to Me

I once heard a person say that “a writer writes something every day”. Hmmmm, I am not so sure about that. It’s quality over quantity always. When I first started my blogging journey I wrote like I was writing in a diary really, really relaxed. The subjects that I shared were always interesting but I had to become more aware of my grammar. Overall, I am proud of my blog. I wanted to do something that had lots of interesting things. Having mind blowing posts that sticks leaving a lasting impression. That’s what I am aiming for. I believe also that I should do things that makes me feel that I am being true to myself. If not, why should I blog at all?

Growing up I always loved writing especially poems. I have been writing poems every since I was a teenager. Blogging allows me to dive into others things that are important to me as well. As I have said there is only but so much that I can say on Facebook without someone not feeling what I am saying.

I will do whatever it takes to keep my blog going. Since I am so passionate about what I write I refuse to fold when it comes to my blog. The things that I talk about needs to be said I am not about saying things so that it goes over people’s heads. Nope, nope, and nope.

We All Matter

Black lives matters, White lives matter, Asian lives matters, Women lives matters, Men lives matters and Children lives matters why??? because all life is precious. I have to be honest I’m really getting tired of every time there is some violence that occurs automatically the idea of gun control comes up. I feel so sorry about what took place in Orlando. No one deserves to lose their lives no matter who they are.

Over the last few years America is becoming more and more less free for some. I don’t own a gun but if I wanted  to purchase one I should be allowed to minus the headaches. I think about the future of America and I’m thankful to be a Christian otherwise I would be living in fear thinking about our country. If it isn’t race baiting going on then there’s talk of gun control. There’s a bigger picture going on and it saddens me when others can’t see it. A gun is a tool used by a human it’s just that simple.

gun-again

As I always say I respect all but don’t accept everything. Everyone has the right to enjoy their rights of the Constitution. Although lately “We The People” is becoming more like I the person because people are more concerned about themselves and less about others. Which is so not cool and that’s so Not American.

Not condoning it but violence has been around for how long? If a person wants to kill they will. The Right to bear arms has been and should stay that way. No one should have their rights changed because of a person who loss control that’s not fair. I’m all about fairness and rights. There are so many ways to stop violence from happening without making gun control the short cut.

 

 

Tameeka’s Opinion On The Confederate Flag

I realize that I am about to get under people’s skin with this topic. Oh well so be it. Last night I was talking about my opinions on the confederate flag and Duke’s of Hazards. Growing up my mother allowed me to watch the Dukes of Hazards I loved the show and I still do that’s right I said it. The show wasn’t a racist show.We have got to do more research before we jump to hasty decisions that’s just in the way. We have to stop falling for all of the race baiting tactics because that’s all it is majority of the time. So no I’m not pressed about the Confederate Flag. Why should I be?

 

Can Christians Be Sexy?

Sexy- sexually attractive or exciting

I am very inquisitive I believe there’s no such thing as a dumb question. If you don’t know ask it never hurts. Question: Are Christians allowed to be sexy? Some people think that being sexy is about the clothes that one wears that is just part of it I feel that sexy is being confident and tasteful at the same time. People have different opinions on certain words. For me I feel why not be sexy just don’t go overboard. It’s fine to be sexy for your husband what’s wrong with making sure that you are the apple of his eye. Doing things like staying fit and always looking close to how you did when you two first met. Ask a person that you trust whether or not if what you are wearing is appropriate. If it makes you feel uncomfortable then chances are it isn’t.

There was a picture floating around the internet pertaining to a lady who was standing in church if what she wore was appropriate for church. Now this is not what I  mean also in this situation I believe that she may was just coming to the faith perhaps it was all that she had. It’s never good to judge, a picture may can speak a thousand words but which one of them are true? Unless it comes straight from the horse’s mouth what you think holds no value really. Perhaps the very lovely Marilyn Monroe said it best “Your clothes should be tight enough to show you’re a woman and loose enough to be a lady. Sexy is being confident and classy at the same time. Yes when we decide to become a Christian there are things that we are to no longer do that’s so true that includes our attitudes and choice of clothing too. When the holy spirit is within us he will definitely be our guide.  I think that God doesn’t mind us being proud of the temple that He gave to us. Just not too proud of course.

Spell My Name

I love the name that my mother gave to me and how she spelled it. It may come off as small, trivial and insignificant I just can’t stand when someone misspells my name. I went through that all my life and it gets under my skin. Grrrrrrrr. People who know me truly knows how to spell my name properly. There are many ways to spell my name but they are all wrong except for one. To me misspelling someone’s name is the same as mispronouncing it. It’s just wrong! My name is not spelled Tomeka, Tamika, Temeka and definitely not Tameka. It’s spelled Tameeka. I thank those who cares in advance. The ones who don’t and  gets it wrong I will just ignore them.Tameeka-t90c0124d95ff95f3b864448a4a2045432d2e81ff13ddb7e61d934b6e010f3defk-hq I’m just kidding ummmmm no I’m not. Well just a little.

Divorce and Christianity

I so kid you not moments before I started to write my blog  on divorce and Christianity a person that I am following  wrote a blog on mixed marriages. It’s not what you think that it is, it was about mixing spiritually. After I read it I felt set free. Anyone who knows me know how stubborn that I can be how I will hold on when letting go is the best option. Physically my ex and I aren’t together haven’t been for over ten years now.However guilt about what is said in scripture gets to me. But after I read the blog I felt that it was confirmation about everything. It’s  understood how God feels about divorce : Malachi 2:16 For the Lord, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for [one] I coverth violence with his garment, saith the Lord of host:therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously. There are several scriptures on divorce and marriage Book of Luke, Matthew, Romans and Genesis etc. Deuteronomy 24:1 says that the husband must write a letter of divorcement.

In 2004 I got married as I have shared my mother was a Christian and I wanted to give my sons a home to name a few. The reasons why I got married was understandable but were they the right ones? Marriage is a very serious situation and I will not use the cop out about being a backslider at the time there’s just no excuse. After the cute wedding the seriousness of marriage sinks in. If you were to see my ex and I together you’d literally ask how the heck did he and I wined up together. He and I are far from two peas in a pod try oil and water. It’s beyond our background and personalities it’s spiritually as well. I love Christ He has brought me a might long ways and my ex doesn’t believe in what I believe. Our sons and I pray together at night and bless our food. The lifestyle that we lead my ex can not fit in. We can’t mix spiritually the Bible even speak of being with a person when they are unequally yoked 2Corinthians 6:14. For me there has been so much that has taken place between my ex and I that can not be fixed. The marriage is not beyond forgiveness but it is beyond restoration. I am not a pastor but I know how mighty and powerful God is. He sent His only begotten Son to earth. I know that God has to be understanding about my situation. He doesn’t make a person suffer forever behind a bad choice. I will admit that had I not backslid I would made better choice. That’s why I walk strongly today. I would rather wait on God no matter how long it takes. His thinking is higher His ways are higher.

Politics and Christianity

John 17:16 says “They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” Romans 12:12 says “And be not conformed of this world: but ye transformed by the renews of your mind…” I get this still we have to vote to make sure that our beliefs are not put into jeopardy. As far as I am concerned I have never been as worried in my whole entire life about Christianity. I look around and this country looks so different from the 80’s and 90’s. I have said it before I will say it again I am proud to be a Christian. I don’t push what I believe on people but I don’t hide my love for Christ either.

In my household growing up one of the rules were when you turned eighteen you have to get registered to vote. My mother was democratic  it was because she felt like they were for the middle class and the poor. And yes she was a Christian too. I understood what my mother meant so I became democratic too. I was really young so of course I am going to follow what my mother felt.

As I have shared before my first real job was at a convenience store. The cool part about is that a variety of people comes in and I loved it. There was a really nice lady that came in she got her coffee. She and I began to talk and she introduced herself as Thelma Drake. I was amazed at her views and what she stood for and I voted for her. Sorry mom the lady was brilliant she got me to see things differently. The older that I got I began to realize that to me my faith was very important so I vote for those  that feel the same. Now I know many politicians will say anything to get elected but there are some that try their best to follow through.

What makes me sad is how ugly the elections can get and how it can separate people. To the point where agreeing to disagree can’t apply. It should never be made about race because it’s not. Perhaps what we all must keep in mind that America is like a ship if it goes down we are all effected by it. We must do what it takes to keep her great and unite instead of fight. I want what’s best for our country there’s a generation coming up behind us. So all I want is what is right for this beautiful nation.
