Happy Thursday!

I hope everyone is having a great week thus far!

I wanted to share two verses with you that I have been meditating on for this week. Whenever I read these two verses, I get so excited because it reminds me how powerful God is. When we have faith (big or small) and believe in God....He can do more than we ever imagined or thought.

Matthew 17:20- "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."

Ephesians 1:19- and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength.

Whatever your situation may be...I pray that you draw on God's strength to pull you out of the situation. God is an amazing God and if we believe in Him and have faith....He will give us the power to work through our situation. His great power is extended to all believers to give us help!

I leave you with this song below from VaShawn Mitchell. This song always ministers to my heart.

Be Blessed!

How we spent our weekend!

We had a blast celebrating B's bday weekend at Sesame Place on Saturday despite the few meltdowns B had! This was our first trip to Sesame Place and it didn't disappoint. We arrived at 12:30 pm and we were on a mission to see as much as we could. Thankfully the park is catered towards little one's....so, it wasn't huge, but it was still a decent size. We weren't able to do everything we wanted because it was pretty packed and the lines were long, but we managed to get on a couple of rides and even saw the Elmo show. You can see some of the pics below of our day:

Happy ending to our day. He is still talking about his ride on the carousel
On Sunday we spent majority of our day in church because we have two services at 10 am and 12 pm and it was Baptism Sunday. We had 14 people baptized in the name of Jesus at the 12 pm service. It was awesome to be able to witness what God is doing in the lives of so many people. At our 10 am service, our pastor was led to allow an impromptu testimony to be given be a new member of the church who doesn't speak English very well. A member of the church translated her testimony into English and her testimony was so touching to someone in the 10 am that the person requested to be baptized at the 12 pm service. GLORY TO GOD!! I was so touched to hear that and God brought to my memory this verse in Revelation 12:11-They overcame him (the enemy/satan/devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony. 

All believers in Christ have a testimony to share that will be a blessing to someone!

How was your weekend? Did you do anything exciting or did you just hang out around the house?

Happy Thursday!

This morning I opened up my YouVersion app and the Verse of the Day that appeared is from

Isaiah 55:8-9

"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways, " declares the Lord. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.

This speaks volumes to me because we sometimes forget that God is greater than any of us or anything. We tend to try and fit Him into our plans and we get mad when things don't go our way. However, we can't make God conform to us...... we have to do everything we can to fit into God's plans and His perfect will for our lives.  We need to stop trying to be a god and allow God to move mightily in our lives. 

Happy Thursday!

B celebrates his 2nd birthday!




Yesterday we celebrated my sons 2nd birthday. It's such a wonderful experience being able to watch your child grow up and see how much information they soak up. B is a sponge and he picks up on everything we say or do. We have been preparing him and letting him know that his birthday is coming up and he's going to be two. So, yesterday morning before the hubby left for work we woke B up by singing happy birthday and his response was "mommy daddy birthday!", we thought that was so cute and we loved on him and told him how much we loved him.

Last year B had a huge birthday bash that I had planned out because it served two purposes.... him celebrating his FIRST YEAR of life and me celebrating my FIRST YEAR of surviving motherhood! But, this year I didn't plan for a birthday party and that was probably for the best because we have been very busy.  However, we didn't do much yesterday because B woke up with a 101 fever and diarrhea so I kept him in, but that didn't stop us from enjoying each others company. I actually enjoyed the intimate celebration we had for Brandon and being able to let him know that he is loved and giving him ourfull attention. Here's a pic below of him yesterday eating his breakfast and then devouring his cupcake:

Not feeling so good!

Feeling better after I ate my cupcake and part of the candle!

This weekend we plan on taking B to Sesame Place to celebrate his birthday and I am so excited for the trip. I hope we can catch the Elmo show because that's his favorite character.

Tell me what you think.....Do you believe that kids should have a birthday party every year?

I think we have a comedian in the family!

My little man is growing up soooo fast, but I never thought that I would have to deal with his funny personality this soon. Yesterday while hanging out with B he was having fun running around and making himself dizzy.  However, I wanted him to stop because I didn't want him to get hurt.

So, this is our little conversation

Me: B stop running around
B: No mommy
Me: B please stop running around
B: Mommy, ENOUGH!
Me: What did you say
B: ENOUGH!

All I can do was laugh after our little banter and I remembered that he's not even 2 yet!



This is my heart! 

What do you all do when you have funny conversations with you children?

Fall is quickly approaching...

This is the season that I really love because I am a College football fan and being from Florida my husband and I are University of Miami Hurricanes, Florida A & M University Rattlers, and The Florida State University Seminole fans. Every year we gear up to participate in FAMU's homecoming festivities and The Florida Classic game that takes place in Orlando, Florida.  I love the unity that the fall season brings.....we get together with our family and friends having a great time tailgating, watching football and participating in the activities. I remember as a young girl on Saturday's I used to watch BET's black college football games and couldn't wait to go to College to enjoy the times.

However, this fall season will be a bit different for us because we are not in Florida, but we are planning on making the best of it by searching for fun cool things for us to do here in Jersey City/NYC. I am sure that we will not be disappointed by what the cities has to offer. But, before we move on to the fall season my family and I enjoyed our summer here in our new city.  

This weekend we had a chance to visit the New York Botanical Gardens located in Brooklyn. The Botanical Garden is so beautiful and a serene place to visit. Also, its a great place to visit on a budget. The normal admission for an adult is $10, however, our admission was free because we made it before 12 pm on Saturday. That was definitely a plus and it made our visit more memorable. After our visit we strolled around Brooklyn and I fell in love with the beautiful Brownstones and just Brooklyn itself. It was my first time visiting Brooklyn and I enjoyed my time...there is so much culture and diversity. Oh, we had a chance to see a glimpse of the children participate in the Brooklyn West Indian American Day Parade. Apparently, this parade happens every year and the there is a week long calendar of events that takes place. Next year we hope to make it to the parade. On Monday, we attended our church first annual family day picnic and we had such a great time. We spent hours at the picnic enjoying good food, kite flying, playing volleyball, the men playing flag football, the kids participating in sack races and a lot more. This was a perfect way to end our long weekend and summer.

As the summer is coming to a close...I would love to hear what you are most looking forward to in the fall?

I hope you all had a great weekend and summer!

I woke up this morning with so much JOY....

No matter the situation don't allow the devil to come in and steal your joy away from you. God is an awesome God and He will do more than we can ever think or imagine. So get up and go get what God has for you! 

Be BLESSED!
