IJBH: 4.7.11

Just being honest...

...This week has been an emotional roller coaster. I've been sad, angry, excited, scared and even a little amorous. I have to believe there is a method to the madness; every single experience has purpose for something to come in my life. Something better is on the horizon. I smell it in the air.

...I'm beginning to have a love/hate relationship with Facebook. On the one hand, I love being able to communicate with some of the greatest people in the world. Inspiration and encouragement are just a click away.

On the other hand, it has become a huge distraction. Lately, I've been posting dozens of daily statuses--and my poor Crackberry vibrates every ten seconds. The most troubling habit that stems from my Facebook addiction is my lack of the ability to be in the moment. I can't even concentrate on a conversation without looking to see what's happening on the book.

So, I am weaning myself off. The first step is to totally ignore my cell phone when I am speaking to someone. I did pretty good today; hopefully, I will do better tomorrow.

....I am so looking forward to the revival at the end of the month! There's just something about this time of the year that renews the hope within me. Plus, I know Pastor Reid is going to deliver some spiritual HEAT!!!!!!

....Poor Appalonia. Seems like we've been all over the country in the last few months. After we get back from Wichita, I promise I'll give her a break.

....I really did consider getting a relaxer today. My hair is getting on my last good nerves because it will not do what I want it to do. This 'fro has one more week to get herself together, or I promise I'm going to get a TCB.

....I got a reminder this week from an amazing friend that my dreams do not belong on the backburner. Lately, I've been so caught up in the mundane details of life that I have forgotten what it feels like to pursue my passion. There is so much more to life than going to work and going to bed...there are stories to be shared and people to be encouraged.

Dear hearts, hold fast to your dreams. Chase 'em until you are breathless.

....Here we are at the end of the regular season and my beloved Pistons have disappointed me yet again. Oh well...2012 is our year.

....Aaron Afflalo is FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINE!!!! Sorry. Just had to get that one out of my system.

....God still answers prayers. That's a good reason to smile right now.

Be Encouraged,
