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!
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.
I just had to take this moment to say just how proud I am of my sister Ernestine! She’s graduating today with her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing! She’s been wanting to get that degree for a long time and she’s done it!
I am SOOOO proud of her! We have so many setbacks in life and it makes me so happy to know that they can be overcome!
Keep going Tiny! I love you! You deserve this day!! I wish I could have been there to share it with you!
Before I get into bed tonight, I just felt like a blog post. I feel like so many things are going on right now…if you look at my life, you won’t be able to see them all, but trust me, I can FEEL them all!
I thank God for everything He is showing me about myself. I am thankful that he is changing me and growing me. I feel like He is working in Marvin just like He is working in me.
Sometimes I get really sad about Marvin being so far away. I love him and I know God put him in my life. I want more than anything to be his wife and enjoy the rest of my life hand in hand with him.
I know that everything will happen when it’s supposed to.
Lord, I trust you. I love you and I know you will only do what’s best for me.
Lord, I am willing to do whatever it is that I have to do in order to have VICTORY.
Over these last few months I have been so grateful for the love and support I’ve received from the people I love. Those closest to me, my sweetheart Marvin and my sister Joanne, have really been my rock.
No matter what is going on in my life, I can always count on the two of them.
I thank you Lord for sending me loving people to lookout for me.
Life may be hard, but I’m grateful to have people who care.
You know I just had to take a minute to say Happy Birthday to the sweetest, most wonderful man I know!
Since meeting you Marvin, my life has changed! I fell in love with your smile and your kindness. I’m so glad that you are a part of my life!
I can’t wait for us to grow old together and sit in our rocking chairs on our porch…but first, we need to go RVing, own our own food truck and go on a Disney Cruise! You and I have alot of living to do!
I’ve asked the Lord for alot of things and something I’ve come to realize is that the things that are in His will for you, HE WILL give you, but he has to prepare you for them first. The preparation can be tricky.
I know that the Lord is leading my steps and I rely on him for every decision I make. My life is not easy, by any means. But I know that God’s got me and I have to do my part.
So, I will.
I know that with you Lord, my future is bright! Thank you for never letting me down!
My new job is coming right along. I’m still in training until Wednesday and then I’m on my own! With my new schedule I’m going to be working on Saturdays so I may have to rearrange some things in order to get out to see my festivals and such.
I was all set to go to the TX Earth Day celebration at Fair Park this past weekend, but I couldn’t make it. My allergies wouldn’t allow it. I spent the whole day in bed suffering!
