Let It Flow

We are our greatest enemy, and our greatest critique. We often hold ourselves down from doing the things that are deep seated in our hearts. We must learn to let the talents and gifts that God has given us, move us into living a successful and fulfilling life. Don’t hold yourself back any longer. Go get what’s yours.

I pray "Let it Flow" inspires you.

Make an Imprint Today!

Have you ever thought about what kind of mark you are leaving in this world as you go through your day? Are you spreading love, joy, and peace to your environment, or are you causing pain, anger, and misery? Well, I have thought about these questions and aim to spread joy, love, and peace to my surroundings.

I believe every step I take should be one of purpose, one that has an impact in my environment, and in the world I live in. The only way this can truly be accomplished successfully is to do things God’s way.

Thank God for His Angels!

"And he will give his angels charge over you, to keep you ...." (Psalms 91:11-12)

What a powerful verse of scripture!

It makes me reflect on a time when I was in my early teens living on the outskirts of Overtown, near Downtown Miami. It was on a beautiful Sunday evening when my family and I was preparing to leave for church service only to be alerted that we must be careful because there was a gun man in the area. For some reason we were reluctant to be mindful of the warning because we headed out the door as planned. As we got situated in the car, I remember looking out the window and seeing about six Cadillacs lined up behind each other as young men came out of their cars with machine guns in their hands. I must say I was shocked! The word was "a gun man was in the area." Well, it was not one isolated person with a gun, but many young African-American men who came out shooting their guns at someone or people, and I am not sure who the person or persons were. All I knew is we were caught in the middle of a shooting spree.
