The virtue of Patience….blessed is she

Hey Loves,

“And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.” Luke 1:45

As I sat in devotion this morning I chose to focus on this particular scripture that I had received from a friend. I found it fitting as everyone seems to be living rather spontaneously. We live in a society which makes everything available at our fingertips so we have lost the virtue of patience. The few of us whom still enjoy shopping away from our computers, When we walk into a store we don’t expect to encounter a line or have someone wait on us. We are microwaving most of our experiences and as a result the relationships we form are in quantity however not of high quality.

We often need to stop and think do we need 5000 friends on social media or do we need friends whom we actually know and can relate to? Friends whom are supportive of us should be the only ones we need in our circles. It is good to have a global connection and relationships with others but it’s even greater when we have a personal relationship with God. The word of God promises to bless us and pour into us, God gave his only begotten son for us. Yet we often wonder why we experience the struggles that we do and think all is against us. As believers we ought to encourage and nourish our faith so that we can hear the voice of God. Know that while we are being impatient God is working diligently for us, it may not be when we expect things to happen for us but in the time that God deems it right for us. Think about it without a test we would have no testimony and without being a victim we would not be a victor. God loves victories and that’s why we encounter struggles so that by overcoming them we are able to share our victories and make a believer of the non-believer.

Freedom from strongholds…….fear unleashed

Hey Loves,
We all have things, or habits that we like to do but sometimes they consume so much of our time that they become unhealthy. Does that sound like you? well you can stop being a hostage to those habits or things. Anything done in exCess can become a stronghold…..

20140626-124124-45684707.jpgas the days go by I am surrounded with people whom all have so much to say or do. My days seem to stay the same or sometimes get busier than ever though My phone rings much less than it used to as I realize there is a freedom all over me! Yes, I feel free, freedom from everything that held me back. Just being fearful of everyone and everything…..those fears don’t live here anymore. I have unleashed those fears and I am ready to walk in my purpose. Think about it, don’t you sometimes wish you could just be free and do that which makes you happy . of course you can do so but in order to do so you have to focus on what is holding you back. Being able to recognize the strongholds in your life will help you to let them go. After all think about it if you don’t know something is a bother then of course you won’t be bothered by it. Late post from last week’s movie outing.

20140626-125849-46729700.jpg Though it may take much meditation for acceptance of the strongholds in your life just remember denial is always the first step so if you are denying what it is that’s holding you back from your purpose then that’s it. You see if it isn’t pushing you forward then its a stronghold which creates excuses for you to stay the same.

20140626-130230-46950803.jpg
Be strong enough to recognize the strongholds, to be able to boot them out of your life, and stop being a hostage from whatever is holding you back. Reclaim you today…..unleash!!!

5 Signs you are ready for Mature Dating

Hey Loves

20140614-204556-74756924.jpg No matter what you go through, even with the worst broken heart, after some time has passed you will be emotionally healed, soul searched, canceled out all that you can live without, you will start feeling alone, empty, in need of someone to share special moments and help you move forward. That is when you will find within you the 5 signs that you are ready for mature dating.

20140614-205918-75558408.jpg Time spent alone feels as if you are missing something, because you have spent so much time by yourself, you are now overcome with emptiness. There is no looking back however and there is no calling the ex now is time to focus on you and forget the past. (Yes too often people relapse and call the ex for companionship which causes the cycle to reoccur and delay moving forward) this I don’t recommend because if it was mendable then why was it broken?

❤️❤️💃The 5 Signs That You are Ready for Mature Dating 🚶❤️❤️

        a) You are focused on moving forward.
        b) You have forgiven the past and rid yourself of the baggage.
        c)  You are not constantly talking about the past (your ex).
        d) You are honest, focused and respectful of differences.
        e) You are willing to learn about someone else without comparison of your ex.

That’s all 5 simple signs however you have to be quiet to hear them and understand when to set your emotions right again. Dating for all the wrong reasons, say for instance your other single friends are dating ( oh yes it happens everybody is dating so its the norm) you may feel that you should be dating also. Stop!!!! Don’t do it we all have different seasons and if its not yours, you will only put yourself in emotional turmoil and delay the process of getting your emotions right again.

While thinking about this post and replaying the relationship counseling I have done I found the most common theme to be People talk too much about their exes and are not honest about what they really want. Before you start dating check to ensure you have experienced the 5 signs that you are ready for mature dating and you are ready to let someone in your life without holding them hostage to your past . Growth requires change, concentration and new experiences so forget the past, look forward to the future, new beginnings.

20140614-214207-78127916.jpg
You maybe feeling emotionally maxed out, anxious or down in the dumps but all is not lost be patient; get focused, pick yourself up, do some soul searching, reason with yourself…..do you like yourself?

20140614-214528-78328444.jpg Well if you like yourself, or even more love yourself then don’t continue to emotionally distant yourself instead learn how to cope with your emotions, take baby steps if necessary and let someone in your world ……….
Stay tuned for more on mature dating

God’s Unfailing Love sets us Free!!!

20140403-153137.jpg</a
Hey Loves,
The weather has broken I am enjoying the 80 degree weather daily in Atlanta, a bit warmer than I like for Spring but it’s better than frigid temperatures so I won’t complain. In my attempt to move forward and build a better relationship with Christ I have come to realize that his unfailing love makes me healthier and provides me with a brighter outlook. Can you imagine I am even more optimistic???? Yes I’m free….God’s unfailing love has set me free from my past, free from drama, free from, pain, free from hurt. I’m not ashamed of my past, I’m not afraid to face rejection, I can look fear in the eye and know I can conquer everything. Yes I have been broken however my past helps to shape my future, my life experiences makes a believer out of others. I love the spiritual relationship and intimacy that I have developed with God which has taught me about his unfailing love and reignited passion in me, yes I am healed, I am set free, I am no longer broken.>

One day multiple events in a single dress…..

20140401-074649.jpg On one particular Saturday I realized I had quite a few events in which I was expected to show up….that’s a bit much but Its my best to be in demand and stay visible in this lucrative market. So after being sick all week I dragged myself out and about. The best part was being able to drag my friend Danetta with me all day. For this event filled day with the weather breaking into beautiful Spring weather I wore a Peter Pan style collar dress made of jersey material in a soft grey hue with an off white collar. To dress it up I added a wide gold metal belt , paired it with a safe black pumps and added a colorful golf bag for a splash of color….

My last event included shoe shopping from Platform Addicts by Khadijiha Rowe as if I need another pair of pink shoes but who can resist a sale? To justify this is a blush pump it is not pink and its a bit lighter than the others as well as its suede while the others are patent leather.

20140401-100548.jpg

What I can say is I had a blast……. After being sick all week it was great to be out and finally enjoy a meal. Though having multiple events in one day can be extremely exhausting, I have learned that being comfortable in your attire will definitely make your events more pleasant So when you are dressed for any event make sure you are comfortably dressed so that you can make the most out of your event. Until next time just remember you can transform a simple outfit with your accessories add a belt or fashion jewelry

Bling into Spring!!!!!!!!

20140325-101853.jpg
Hey Loves!!!!

After a cold, frost biting, snowy winter, we have been blessed with warmer temperatures and sunshine. I can only say yes thank you Lord because we have been patient. Now with the weather breaking, everyone wants to be outdoors to enjoy all the festivities and activities. The big question is what to wear and when?. Well if you are like most fashionistas you have everything in the closet screaming let me out of here I waited long enough for this weather. Spring 2014 Fashion is Fun, Fierce and Fabulous!!!. That means its all about the inner you an expression of how you want to be seen by others you can do loud/bold/neon colors are you can go with the beauty of pastels and prints. Ooooh yes a season that will make every one in a room look different. To Bling into Spring I personalized my style by mixing the pastel hues with the boldness of rose .

20140325-103016.jpg</a
With the mix of hues I am ready for my Friday night outing yes ready to visit
Spirit and Truth Worship Center in Loganville, GA. I must say the contrast in hues are perfect for a sunny afternoon fading into night fall at a casual setting. The hues contrasted so well and complimented each other it makes me want to make them staples in my closet but I’m not going shopping as I have learned over the years Less is more. Meaning when I have less clothing I wear them often and I wear them well, I can actually say well it was worth the price before I pass them off to charity instead of having to resell them at a consignment shop. I am not saying resale is bad because those checks are quite handy however I have learned to make better choices when investing in clothing or accessories. So while I am ready to bling into Spring I am going to attempt to be as frugal as possible and wear all the beautiful clothes in my closet that are screaming let me out of here.

So comfortable in my mixed hues I had to tone it down with Black pumps, of course I could have opted for a nude pair of pumps which would have really turned up my outfit but going to church I try to scale down the fashionista in me that wants to be fabulous and fierce everyday. Service was just so awesome with Pastor Nedra Buckmire and Pastor Kimberly Jones-Pothier. I stood there saying thank you Lord I am where I belong, as I heed my calling to ministry.

20140325-110044.jpg

20140325-110111.jpg</a I can look up and say thank you Lord for directing me away from the many parties where I could have gone instead and sending me to church to study your word to remove the fear that sits over my life, to release all strongholds and have the life of abundance, of blessings, of joy that you have promised me.

Polka Dots: oh yeah let’s add some dots for Spring

Hey Loves
A 👧friend once told me ” one of my coworkers hates polka dots” and I remember saying oh no!! that’s impossible polka dots are so fashionable and a must have in every diva’s closet.

20140318-015732.jpg
Ooooh yeah! The weather is warming up nicely and I must say I am looking forward to trends as well as mixing and matching all my favorite pieces. Lately I have discovered that I have a passion for polka dots, no matter what size dots or what article of clothing as long as its available in polka dot I just gotta have it. Recently on a trip from Texas I saw a diva rocking her cable knit sweater over a polka dot blouse with leggings and I was so inspired to recreate the look. So up early and getting ready for church I decided it would be a cable knit and polka dot kind of day .

20140318-020546.jpg You too can recreate this fresh stylish look by pairing an old cable knit sweater with a polka dot top or dress that you think you have worn just about too many times. That’s right I retrieved my cable knit sweater from the I won’t wear this anymore pile. I must say I am in awe at this fashionable statement as I truly love polka dots no matter what color dots I rock them. Offset the dots with bling of course Traci Lynn Fashion Jewelry bling bold large navy and silver bling creates a contrast on top of the brick red cable knit knit sweater. As always looking good means feeling good, if you can recreate and pull off this outfit then I know you are feeling good and ready for spring too!!!
