I was putting creamer in my coffee and the words "the bridge that crossed me over" came to mind. Just a few days ago I was having a conversation with my mother and she quoted an old preacher friend who often made that statement. So and so was "the bridge that crossed them over". In other words don't get so full of yourself and forget how you arrived at your destination. I fully acknowledge that I am who I am today because of other people who were willing to allow me to cross over on their accomplishments until I obtained my own. I am eternally grateful to the following people: Dr. Bernard Silver, Bobbie Bingham, Victoria Hammon, Larry D. Pate, Dr. Rebecca Lomax, Janet Dressel, Sr. Anthony Barczykowski D.C. and James "Jim" Kelly. So often we never look back and give homage to the people who stuck their necks out for us. If any of the people I referenced asked for my assistance I would have to stop and immediately respond. But so often we get caught up in being "busy" and when called by those who helped us [on numerous occasions] we have the unmitigated gaul to not respond or put them on a "to do list." Be careful with that type of insensitivity because what goes up has to come down. On today reflect and pay homage in some way to the "bridge that crossed you over."

It is so easy to get lost inside of our minds and believe things about ourselves that are untrue. Sometimes we have to step back and consult with the ultimate authority regarding our importance and significance to the Creator of the Universe.  Psalm 139:1-18 O  Lord , you have examined my heart   and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up.You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it,  Lord . You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,   too great for me to understand!   I can never escape from your Spirit. I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning   if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength w


Life is beautiful! However life can also be difficult and hard. It is so easy to allow tragedies, disappointments and setbacks to get in our way. Thereby sullying God's sacred posture in our human experience. When Moses had an encounter with God and questioned how he was to identify or describe God to the children of Israel. God replied to Moses: "I Am Who I Am. Say this to the people of Israel: I Am has sent me to you." Mirror work has been used for eons to bring people into alignment with their purpose, destiny, and calling. Instead of reciting traditional positive affirmations let's use scripture for backup. Stand in front of a mirror and tell yourself •I am God’s child for I am born again of the incorruptible seed of the Word of God which lives and abides forever 1 Pet. 1:23 •I am forgiven all my sins and washed in the blood Eph. 1:7 •I am a new creature II Cor. 5:17 •I am the temple of the Holy Spirit I Cor. 6:19 •I am delivered from the power


Today is my sister's birthday. She indeed is my best friend. We have so many memories and regularly share laughs. She is and has always been a blessing to our family. Her love has no boundaries. She is a peaceful and calm person. She loves black and white movies, musicals, broadway plays, baking and working in her art studio. The Golden Girls was one of my favorite TV sitcoms. Actually the theme song drew me to the show. "Thank you for being a friend Traveled down the road and back again Your heart is true you're a pal and a confidant. And if you threw a party Invited everyone you knew You would see the biggest gift would be from me And the card attached would say thank you for being a friend." Happy Birthday Sis! source:
