img_5033God bless you sisters!

Thinking and praying for you all including myself. It was a rough year but 16 is gone and I am here trying to ‘Move Forward’ for 2017 in every way; God willing!!! I know He wants more from us. I took a lot of time off and backed away from the social side for many reasons. It’s just plain political. I love it sure at times. It is a powerful tool but it can also be a powerful stool to bring someone down!

I have really been tossing and turning of what sisterhood is all about… so many people are gone now. But I get it. Whoever is there now must be. Everything changes as time passes. I find myself questioning what truth is. Family. Faith. Friendship.

At the end of the day, we are ALL going to be flesh beings. I am never going to be the perfect sister, wife, mother, friend, worker and more…. the lists go on. I know I failed you all by imperfections. But I know who will be perfect for us all.

G O D!

And it is time to draw near. I want to draw near to Him. Share goals with the symbiotic type relationships. Share prayer. Share our ups, downs and all that good stuff with a remnant of sisterhood that will remain.

Anything toxic we must disconnect from. As for me, I am guarding this heart of mine. I don’t want to put myself in a place where I am prey. I should know better by now.

I recommend that book, “Moving Forward” by John Siebeling to you all. Get it. By the time I hit the intro and chapter one it smacked my humanity in the face. Thank God we have a Savior.

But here is what I do wanna say… I want to be a better version of me. I am sorry to all that I have offended, upset or frustrated by my way of being. I do know I need to continue to seek growth!

Attitude is everything.

Sisterhood is something.


Let’s press through the mess and send a message that says this… be your own kind of beautiful!

“Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peaceful.” Proverbs 3:17

I aim that arrow to love you. The uncut, fully flawed way, that falls yet gets back up again. God does it to perfection! ❤️
