Lollipop bouquet

Happy Friday sweetie pies!!! Hope you have a fun filled Friday! Today, I wanted to share a lollipop bouquet that I made as a gift to my most sweetest and dearest friend! She has been ride or die since we were seven! This bouquet is a token of her sweet dear friendship. We have never fallen out, or lost touched! She is trustworthy, and her friendship means more to me than she’ll ever know! Here’s to you Erica!




What you’ll need!

Styrofoam ball
Flower pot
Glue gun
A bag of your favorite lollipops

Step one
Fill the styrofoam ball up with as many lollipops as you can, make sure you don’t see any styrofoam in-between. Leave the bottom of the ball lollipop free, you need room to glue the styrofoam ball to the pot. You want your bouquet to be beautiful!

Step two
Stuff the flower pot with balled up newspaper. (Add a little glue so the newspaper balls don’t move around.)

Step three
Glue your ball to the newspaper and the pot.

Step four
Tie a pretty ribbon around the pot!

There it is…a sweet gift for the sweetest friend!



Let me know if you try to create this sweet treat!

Loving unconditionally

Good afternoon! I watched Joel Osteen today and he preached on loving unconditionally! Don’t judge a book by it’s cover, you don’t know a persons situation, we aren’t perfect; give everyone a chance! It was a beautiful message! Then he gave a beautiful example of how a mother, a father and their 1 year old was out eating breakfast. The little boy kept smiling laughing, and playing and the mother didn’t know why! She finally saw the baby was so entertained by a man sitting a little ways from them. The man looked to be homeless, less fortunate, hair wasn’t combed his clothes weren’t clean…you get the point. The baby wouldn’t stop playing with the man across the room! The man even spoke loudly to the baby, saying hi! The mother and father tried to hurry and eat out of embarrassment! When they were finished the mother was at the register and was about to pay. The man so happened to be behind her, the baby reached for the man and eventually was held by the man. The baby laid his head on the mans shoulder, the man had dirty hands and all. The moral of the story is, the baby was so innocent and had an unconditional love for the man! Not judging him because of his appearance! Joel Osteen said we should aspire to be like that innocent baby! Loving unconditionally! Stop judging and start loving! Our world needs love, the people around us that we think have issues need love not judgement! I thought about my innocent daughter! She doesn’t judge me, she only knows the world as a happy place. She comes to me with open arms and embraces me as I am, flaws and all. That’s how we should be!
We all need love, let’s start loving and stop judging!

Who’s your God?

Hi there! Today I wanted to focus on the God in your life. So many of us has turned the focus of the one who is suppose to be our God, our savior, our mentor, our leader, our strength, our hero into someone who is not worthy of it. The king, our Heavenly Father should get all the worship and the praise for he is worthy. You wonder why your not happy? You wonder why you feel low, lonely, mistreated and used? The truth is because God is a jealous God and you are not giving him what he deserves! You should make him first. Stop devoting all your time, emotions, and cares on the one who mistreats you, and devote it to the creator! He is the one who can help you. Take time today to make it right for he is and should be your first love! How dare you forget that! We owe him everything; our hearts, our souls, all of us!! Make him your GOD!!! He is and always will be the one who will never fail you! Don’t make him jealous! Remember, when he is not #1 in our lives he gets jealous!

Here are 10 ways to love!!!

Oh how I love thee

Picture from Pinterest

When I think of the goodness of Jesus and all he’s done for me, my soul cries out hallelujah, thank God for saving me! Today, I was granted the blessing of seeing truth! For a long time I questioned why I lost certain people in my life and why I had to let so many people go. Now at the age of 30 I’m finally truly understanding why that is. A very special person told me that they can’t go where your going. I didn’t get that then… But today I do! Today I spent time with the people who love me more than life, who value, and cherish, me. The people I can trust, and depend on, and who won’t ever betray or hate on me. My life isn’t perfect but it’s as perfect as life gets. It’s a life that was designed for me and me only. When I look back over my life and think things over… I can truly say that I’ve been blessed I have a testimony! I loooove my family each and every one of them. Each of them
hold a special and dear place in my heart, today I found who my soul truly loves! My Chicago family and my Florida family! I didn’t spend today with everyone but today I realized my soul loves you all; I know you all love me!


Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to the love of my life, my king, my friend, my supporter, my husband! He has brought so much joy to me and our daughter’s life! I couldn’t imagine having picked anyone else to share the excitement of parenthood with. He is a true example of a man who loves, provides, and protects! I have been more than pleased with him. Thank you Bay! You mean the world to me.

5 ways to mend a broken heart


picture taken from ThegioiWallpaper.com

Happy Monday to all my lovely readers! Today, I wanted to share 5 ways that are unfiltered, meaning not sugar-coated, but just down right real on how to mend a broken heart. These are sure ways to heal, I can attest to them. 

1st way to mend a broken heart


Matthew 17:21, “But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” The first way to really mend a broken heart is to turn everything over to God; without God nothing is possible. Prayer and fasting is a sure way to break any ties whether it being a soul tie or just an attachment that is un-natural and demonic. Usually, when you have no explanation for what you are feeling and why you are feeling that way it is a spirit; a spirit that needs to be let loose. The only way to break the barrier is to fast and pray; consistently, whole heartedly and God will deliver you and set you free, (this is a promise).

2nd way to mend a broken heart


1 Corinthians 6:19-20, “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” The second way to mend a broken heart, is to value yourself, your mind, body and soul. Watch what you put in your body. What goes in your body will definitely come out. Your body is a temple. If you are eating toxins you will think in a toxic matter; but if you are eating properly you will think properly, helping your heart to mend. Remember: food is a source of energy, watch what you eat!

3rd way to mend a broken heart


Isaiah 41-13, ” I am the LORD your God, who holds your right hand, and I tell you, Don’t be afraid, I will help you.” Do not fear being alone, some of the most powerful progression comes from being alone and standing with God. You are able to see who you truly are and who God called you to be, by standing strong and walking away from the past. The past had you held down in gloom, stand up strong so you can be the flower God called you to be and bloom.

4th way to mend a broken heart


1 Thessalonians 5:11, “Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.” A true friend is not one that just allows you to build them up, but they help encourage you as well. Friends are supposed to help one another spiritually, mentally and emotionally. If you are down they should be strong enough to help lift you back up! If they can’t help lift you up, you need to re-evaluate your friendship. You want a spiritual friend, one that uses wisdom and care when talking to you at such a critical time in your life. The key to this particular moment in your life is: truth, patience and sensitivity. A true friend will know how to balance and distribute all three.

5th way to mend a broken heart


Proverbs 19:8, “He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good.” Remember that it’s ok to love yourself; this is a must, especially when healing. If you don’t love yourself in this process you are going to fail, and your heart WILL STAY BROKEN! Love yourself, treat yourself!!! You are more than a conqueror, you are the VICTOR! You can survive on faith and faith alone! This is your time, your season, you will win!!! Remember like the beautiful scripture above states, ...he that keeps understanding shall find good. Understand the process, and that God brought you to it and he will bring you through it! There is sunshine and a rainbow at the end of a rainy day!!!

 I hope and pray that this will guide and help heal a broken heart! You are beautiful, powerful and called for greatness.

Woman Work




picture taken form singleblink.wordpress.com

Today, my post is dedicated to two powerful women. First the beautiful poet Maya Angelou. Second…wait, wait, wait…we will get to that later. Maya Angelou is and always be, my favorite poet. She has a variety of poems that I find just absolutely amazing. Her poems have always left me feeling confident, as if I am a woman who can take on the world. May she rest in peace and be remembered for the lives she touched and the hearts she helped mend. She has truly helped me get through some rough times; with her inspirational words of courage and hope. She is truly a woman whose work will be missed.

Here is one of my favorite poems by the great Maya Angelou. It exemplifies one particular person in my life. Someone I truly love and admire. She does everything with grace and poise; without an attitude or a frown. She is beautiful beyond measures. This poem is dedicated to my big sis Kena. No one knows behind closed doors, how much we do for the ones we adore.


Woman Work

I’ve got the children to tend
The clothes to mend
The floor to mop
The food to shop
Then the chicken to fry
The baby to dry
I got company to feed
The garden to weed
I’ve got shirts to press
The tots to dress
The can to be cut
I gotta clean up this hut
Then see about the sick
And the cotton to pick.

Shine on me, sunshine
Rain on me, rain
Fall softly, dewdrops
And cool my brow again.

Storm, blow me from here
With your fiercest wind
Let me float across the sky
‘Til I can rest again.

Fall gently, snowflakes
Cover me with white
Cold icy kisses and
Let me rest tonight.

Sun, rain, curving sky
Mountain, oceans, leaf and stone
Star shine, moon glow
You’re all that I can call my own.
Maya Angelou

I love you Kena!!!

His mercy endures forever


picture taken fromfrvlad.blogspot.com

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”, Romans 3:23. Have you ever felt like you’ve done something unforgiveble? As if God won’t forgive or heal you, and that he may even turn his back on you? The truth is, no matter how sanctimonious a person may act they have sinned too. Life is all about trials, tribulations and triumphs. The triumphs are what keep us going, because at the end of the trials and tribulations there is victory, when you are truly serving the Lord. It is a beautiful feeling to know that we are truly loved by our father God, more than we love ourselves. No matter how great or small the mistake you’ve made he will forgive you. “His mercy endures forever,” Psalms 136. Know that if you repent and ask for God’s forgiveness, you are healed and forgiven. Live daily by this scripture, Psalms 116:1-2, ” I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.” You are a child of God, he loves and forgives you! Remember that!!!

I hope this reached at least one heart today.
