What Blogging is To Me

I started blogging way back around 2003. My first blog was called Christians in Good Company and I just recently retired it. It was my way of documenting my walk with God. Around 2005, my life changed drastically and that blog became a wonderful way for me to keep track of everything that was going on and to see small victories God was allowing in my life.

My life looks SO different now than it did back then. God has done AMAZING THINGS! Right now, I’m in the process of revamping my current blog RLSocialMedia. Over the years I’ve gotten away from writing daily, but I’m seeing the need to get back to it. Blogging makes me happy and really gives me an outlet and I need that right now.

My life and my world is expanding and I want to document every piece of it!!

I Refuse To Stay Broken!

As some of you can probably tell, God has made a few changes to my life in the last few months. Some have hurt more than others, but I STILL know that God LOVES me and He’s always gonna do what’s best for me. It may not feel like it right now, but He knows best. I’ve learned over the years to trust Him and be confident in what He wants my life to be!

God loves me more than anyone ever could! He wants me to be happy! I believe that, and no matter who has left my life, I KNOW that YOU KNOW it was for the best. I cannot see further down the road, but You can Lord. I TRUST YOU.

I’ve been through harder times than these and I refuse to stay broken. God has been too good to me. If He brought me good, He can bring me better! Thank you Lord!

Grateful to God and Still Standing

I must say: I am so grateful to God for my job, my schedule, my paycheck, my son, my health and my overall life!

I might complain sometimes, but I KNOW God has blessed me and my son! Our whole lives have been blessed. Yes, we have been through alot, but thru it all God has been there! I can see His hand on us through everything.

Lord, I’m asking you right now to help me to stay strong when I feel like I want to crumble. Show me the right steps to take to get to where I am trying to go.

I know You can handle anything that comes up!

Allergies, Full Time Work and a Biopsy!

I have been sick, sick, sick!

The allergy season hit and I went down!!

I started my new job on September 17 and have basically been sick since then. I finally went to the doctor yesterday with a low grade fever. She put me on antibiotics and some cough syrup and advised me NOT to take the flu shot right now! I need to wait until my body is back up to 100%.

We also decided that I need to get a biopsy done on a lump that I had an MRI for not too long ago. She thinks that it may be getting bigger and it’s blocking my sinuses, which is causing me to have an infection. I’m not sure how they are going to do the biopsy, but they will be contacting me when they want me in General Surgery.

I’m SO thankful for this job that God has given me! This is a start to a new part of my life and I’m excited! Ramel is in the 12th grade, has a job and I am SO proud of him! God is doing great things for both of us! I hadn’t had a full time job since 2004!

The next thing on my list is a car. We have been riding the bus since moving here in 2006. It’s time that I get back behind the wheel! I’m going to have to start saving money from each pay check to be able to put towards that. I would love to be driving by January!

Alot is going on right now and there is so much more that I need to do! I need to start going back to the gym now that I’m working and can pay for it! That way, I can get my health back under control and start feeling better!

God, you know all of the things I’m trying to do! Thank you Lord for being right here with me and providing everything that I need!! YOU are such a GOOD GOD!!

Kidecals Review with Pics!

I was contacted by Kidecals not too long ago about doing a review on some of their kid decals. I have a 16 year old who isn’t interested in decals, but I do have nieces and nephews and I figured I would try them out on one of them!

The niece that I picked is Olivia. She is starting school this year, so I figured she’d enjoy the labels. This is Olivia:

Let me just say that I LOVED the labels! I picked one with her name and the silhouette of  a queen in a tiara. We tried putting them on her backpack and some of the items in her bag and she took them off! She looks like a little DIVA doesn’t she?!

Kidecals has lots of different options,  broken down by gender and age; they even have sections for Teens and College age! They offered lots of different uses for them instead of the usual…some examples are Allergy Alerts and Keyboard Stickers!

Don’t take my niece’s word for it! Go to Kidecals for yourself and see how beautiful the labels are! You will NOT be disappointed!

Taste Of Dallas 2014 (with pics)

I had an awesome time at the Taste of Dallas this year. I got the chance to go out with my friends Bruce, Montrel, Willie and John and I haven’t laughed that much in a long time.

The food was good and the one spot that stood out was The Island Spot! They had AMAZING BBQ ribs!! Spicy and Sweet! I was a little disappointed though that I didn’t see 2 of my favorite places: Joe’s Crab Shack and Tiff’s Treats!

Overall, it was a great outing and I’m just blessed to have been able to go with good friends!

The Devil is on His Job

I know it’s NOT my imagination. It seems like these last few months, the devil has been throwing all kinds of things my way! Health issues, job issues…I’m tired of everything falling to pieces…but you know something? They DIDN’T fall to pieces. I’m still here and the devil did NOT win!

I spent last night in the ER and I am very thankful to God that I’m home, safe and sound. I’m still in pain and have to go back to the doctor on Monday, but no matter what, God’s Got Me.

Thank you Jesus for NEVER letting me down EVER.
