Dear God & Heavenly Angel Henry: (Psalm 23)
Daddy & Daughter
Rest In Heaven Bubba. You was one of my favorite cousins who made me laugh all the time. Not only did they take you away from us but most importantly your beautiful children. Thank you for being yourself throughout the years. We always started where we left off regardless, if we hadn’t seen each other in 5 years. You had real family love. You definitely knew how to turn up. I’m thankful God connected us here on earth.
You had the kind of heart where everyone felt welcome around you. That just runs in our family. You was always cheerful, even when you was down, you turned up. Thats why many of us are in shock. My heart still hurts to know you won’t be able to come around and enjoy the family while we are here on earth. However, God knows what, why, and when our time is up. We are not on our own time.
I’m not upset that you are gone because you are in Good hands. No more struggles, pain, sufferring, struggles or worries. I’m thankful and celebrating your homecoming with God, Grandma & Granddaddy up there in heaven. May our family receive justice, come together in Unity & Love & Peace. I’m still crying from the hurt of you not being here but God is Good. How could someone take such a cool, down-to-earth spirit.
I will be sure to listen to your music and reminisce on the goods times we had on this earth. You definitely had the the voice of a R&B Singer. If only the world could have heard you.
To God Be The Glory during our trials as we walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death.
In Loving Memory, Henry aka Bubba.

A Mother’s Love for her baby is unconditional. From the time the baby is conceived, undying love grows from within. A tradition of tender, love, and care begins. A Mother’s Love is kind and patient. Watching a baby laugh and smile is the most beautiful act of Love. The fire and desire of hugging and kissing a baby explodes.
I’m so thankful to have my baby niece. Congratulations to my sister-in-law I love her and my niece with all my heart. She is so precious and smart at 3 months. May she be blessed all of her days.
Congrats to all the new mothers in the world.
Who is your enemy? Are you sleeping with the enemy? Why do we have enemies? Are enemies good or bad? I can go on and on with the subject about the enemy. Its not about avoiding the enemy, but standing your ground.
Enemy can be defined in so many ways. According to Google, enemy is a “person who is actively opposed or hostile to someone or something.” America consider bad people the enemy. Some view evil acts to be from the enemy. For example, a bad person can be considered someone who steal your material items you worked hard for. Evil acts from people is doing things such as committing adultery, murder, drunkenness, envy, c gossiping, lying and more. So who is your enemy. I found the number one enemy in most people lives are themselves. They will lie to themselves, mistreat themselves, abuse themselves and more. It all starts with you being your own enemy before someone else can become your enemy.
On the other hand, many people is sleeping with the enemy. Especially, if you experience constant acts of hatred more than peace, joy and happiness. Does your significant other mentally abuse you with negative, hurtful words or is it Physical abuse with blows to your face and body? If they apologize habitually then it’s because it has become a bad habit from past experiences. If they don’t apologize then its possible they don’t know they do it or just don’t care.
God had a plan when he decided to create you and allow the enemy into our lives. The enemy is supposed to be our foot stool. He help us gain strength through his negligent actions. God always give has greatest battles to his strongest soldiers. The enemy is bad because he comes to steal, kill and destroy. However, it’s a blessing to have the enemy because we learn lessons and what we don’t want. I believe you can turn your life around if you stop being your own enemy first. It takes time and is a process. Don’t settle for less if you keep experiencing pain and suffering with the people around you. Be conscious of the people around you. Make sure they are adding in your life and not being leaches. Once again, who is your enemy?
Today, I ran across a crying mother from California. She has been visiting her daughter over the last 6 weeks in Charleston, SC. Her daughter was blessed with a precious new born baby. However, he came into this world prematurely.
She could barely get her words out as she shared why she was crying. Not only was she going to miss him but she was worried about his surgery soon. At this time, I’m trying not to cry myself bc I can only imagine the fear she had for her grandson. It gave me a flashback when my mother was informed by St. Jude that her 1 year old baby was diagnosed with Cancer. Now I wasn’t aware of my condition as I was only 1, but I’m sure you can see where I’m coming from. I had to myself in her shoes.
She was crying so much, I really didn’t know how to help her smile. Suddenly, the spirit of God inspired me to share my story. I told her, it will be ok and that I was a proud cancer survivor for over 30 years. I expressed how I went through chemo-therapy and radiation at 1 years old. I made sure I told her my age I was diagnose to give her hope about her newborn grandson. I told her how St Jude Children research hospital doctors and nurses was so good to me.
I noticed her crying started to ease up and a smile started to form. I told her that eventhough, the doctors would give bad news some times I had my mom there to tell me GOD has the last say so. She looked up at me and said, God sent me an angel to ease my heart.
OMG, that touched my heart and made me feel so good to know I impacted someone positively today. As we were ending our conversation, she was smiling. It felt like we knew each other for years but only knew each other for 15 minutes. My duty as God’s servant was accomplished today.
You never know how your story will impact someone else today. Make sure you share yours because it can be a blessing for someone else.
