Psalms 23

I just wanted to share with you one of my favorite Scriptures, Psalms 23. I know it’s a popular Psalm but while reading it in service one day I realized this is a very POWERFUL set of scriptures when broken down line by line. Whenever I get to verse 6 (“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of The Lord for ever”) I get a chill down my spine and I tear up a little.

So, below I posted Psalms 23 KJV. You can’t get any better than the WORD. 🙂

Psalms 23

1The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Anticipating

40 weeks…….10 (not 9) months of waiting. Anticipating the day I get to see your face….the day I get to hold you in my arms for the first time. From the moment I found out I was carrying you I knew you were a blessing. My little blessing……. I dont know how many more hours or days I have to wait until you finally make your debut, but just know that you have a big family thats ready to spoil you.  You have a mommy that can’t wait to teach you so many things: how to walk, talk, how to sing, reading, writing and most importantly about God 🙂

This is just a little note to let you know I’m waiting and ready…..just  take it easy on me though on your way out Miss Skylah Julisse lol  🙂

Love your Beautiful Mother

Washed Away

*THIS POST WAS STARTED ON WEDNESDAY MARCH 23, 2011*

As the rain, sleet, hale and snowflakes hit my windshield, I begin to think about all the different experiences I’ve been through, about all of the friendships  I’ve made and lost, about my experiences and my recent revelations. The main thought I had that evening was CHANGE….

We tend to want to hold on to people, friendships, relationships, material things, jobs……. We know they arent the best for us but because we dont have the courage to let go and move on we would remain quiet about it and be unhappy, knowing that we’re just making things worse.

A few people have told me that I’ve changed, some said for the good, some said otherwise, but I say for the Good,  I’m sorry but my mentality of life should not be the same from 10 years before. I will be 30 on my next birthday, i should not have the same thoughts and goals from when I was 19.

So while I drove around having one of my “thinking sessions” I’ve come to the realization that all of my doubts about changing my old ways of thinking, living, and loving, were being washed away. The people and places I used to associate myself  with were being washed away.

And GUESS WHAT…….. I dont miss any of it! <huge smile 🙂 >

That storm washed away everything I DIDNT need in my life and made way for a new season…….. WHAT ARE SOME THINGS IN YOUR LIFE THAT NEED TO BE WASHED AWAY?

Gotta Get Next To You

Love at first sight, nah I guess it was really lust
Too many eyes and ears to voice my feelings, not knowing who to trust
You were so fine, and smelled so good, huge plus
I gotta get next to you, oh yes, I must
I’m gonna make my move, no turning back from this,
All I really wish, is to be laced by those lips, With a juicy kiss…..
…….just what I expected, like dots we connected,
That kiss was bliss, forgot about our lives being so hectic
Hopefully we can turn this into more than just a side thing
A kiss turning into love, no longer a fling
But until then, I’ll just reminisce about our little time together
A short moment of passion, will remain in my mind forever…

This Race…..

Not up to par, hate this feeling of depression,
Constant thoughts repeat in my mind like an obsession.
WHAT SHOULD I DO? Decisions that need to be made,
Things that shouldn’t be a priority overload and explode my time like a grenade.
Gotta get to the “prize” at the end of this race,
But im letting obstacles I face, take place and slow down my chase.
I’ll make it to the finish line but I gotta stay focused on what really matters right now.
This side mess will only spread, ”stay focused B”, I tell myself, but then I think “How?”
But nevertheless I won’t stress and do what I gotta do,
Because I’ll be the one with the “prize” once this race is through…

Heaven’s Angels– Bin Of Memories (Part 2)

Its been 13 years since my Brother -n-Law Larry and my 14 month old nephew Chad (My sister’s husband and son) passed away (July 15,1998). To this day it still pains me and I think about them everyday. I often wonder about what life would be like if they were still here: Larry with a super nice car blasting his music and having even better gadgets than me, lol. Chad would be 14, probably taller than me, playing basketball…..

I cant help to imagine but I know the longer i think about it, the sadder I become…..

Not too long after they passed i wrote a poem about Chad for his 2nd birthday May 6, 1999. I think I was 17 years old. I even did a poem on video for my T.V. Production class in high school.

So Im posting to share with you “Heaven’s Angels (A Nephew Of Mine)”….. LOVE YOU ALWAYS CHAD & LARRY SEGERS……Heaven’s Angel (A Nephew of Mine)

Heaven’s Angel is Cheerful, Joyful

The Sweetest Child you can find

Its no wonder Heaven’s Angel is a Nephew of Mine

He was 14 months Old

And bringing joy to each and every soul

with his cute little smile

and his Heart of pure gold

with soft braids like Bone Thugs

And resembling both his mom and dad

He’s Heaven’s Angel

And his name is “Baby Chad”

God’s most precious Angels

come once in a lifetime

Heaven’s Angel is “Baby Chad”

And he is a Nephew of Mine

Man In The Mirror

On Thursday I was driving home in my car listening to Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror”. While singing along with the chorus, I began thinking about a conversation I had with a friend earlier in the day and also a conversation with another friend last week. To sum up both of the discussions, they were about making changes and moving on to better themselves. I was proud to see that both of my friends were deciding to take control of the situations in their lives and pressing forward to do better.
I definitely can relate to their situations and was honored that they wanted my advice and encouragement. I shared my story of the past 12 months of my life and was able to give ensight on what happened when I began to take control of situations in my life. I spoke to them about how I didn’t give power to my fears but I had my faith overpower my fears.

With that being said, we can live our lives blaming everyone else for things that happen to us, but when will we stop and look at ourselves and say “what is it that I’m doing on my end  that just isnt right?” Though I’m not where I want to be in life right now and there are still some things that aren’t right but I do thank God that I’m not where I was mentally, spiritually, financially or emotionally 12 months ago. So if you want to make YOUR world a better place, take a look at YOURSELF and make YOUR change.

…………RIP Michael Jackson……

“I”m Starting With The Man In The Mirror
I’m Asking Him To Change His Ways
And No Message Could Have Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And Then Make A Change”

Bin Of Memories (Part 1)

While looking through my bin full of my old writing notebooks, I started looking though one of the books. I remember this book the most because it was 2001 and I just moved back from Virginia. I wasn’t quite sure what my next move would be, so I began writing my thoughts and other random things in this book.  I came across a poem I wrote about someone I was dating. To this day this person is a very close friend of mines. I don’t know why this poem stuck out the most when I was looking through the book but I’ve always liked it and so did most of my friends…..I think I got skills lol. So enjoy because this is one of many…..

Sweet Sensation

The way you look at me

The way you hold me

The way you whisper in my ear

The way you tell me how much you love me

The way you show me how much you care

The way we talk on the phone

The way we cuddle when you and I are alone

The way you make me feel

The way our love seems so unreal

The way you wrap your arms around my shoulders

The way I put my head on yours

The way you rub my body

The way I yearn for more

The way you invade my thoughts

The way I want for you to invade me

The way my inner thighs tingle

The way I want you physically

The way I dream about

The way it will be

The touch, the feel, the Sweet Sensation of you inside of me

The smell of your scent

The smell of mine

The smell of our scents together as they intertwine

Our moaning, our panting, our love making, so tender

Passion too good to be true

A dream I want to remember

I can’t wait for the day

That I get to experience you

The way I want to make it known

That I want this dream to come true
