Embracing Me is an opportunity for us to connect with ourselves...learning to embrace the God within. The post that I share with you are very real. The experiences of my life (whether good, bad or indifferent) sought to develop me into a Woman who honors the God that dwells inside of me.

For over 10 years I fought against sharing my life's experiences with the world but I also neglected to fully share my gifts. You may ask why I denied myself to live and the answer is fear! After relinquishing the fear of my own thoughts as well as the thoughts of others I have decided to do and be all that God has ordained. He chose me to share my testimonies through songs, poetry, short stories and encouraging words.

I invite you to travel with me as I journey into yet another fearful place, seeking to please the Father while providing healing, restoration and inspiration as chosen. It is my hope that these words will improve your daily living.

My charge to you: Think Well. Do Well. Speak Well. Be Well. Live Well.

"For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it." - Isaiah 55:10-11

Leaving Baltimore

From childhood until last year, I dreamed of exploring the world. From Morocco to Madagascar, Italy to Turkey, France to Australia, Russia to Ireland, Ethiopia to South Africa; I yearned to see the world in all its beauty. I set a goal to start by visiting every state in my own country before age fifty and then onward to as many countries as I am able to before leaving this life behind. Thus far I managed to visit more than half of the state's in America. 

For almost a year I held onto the secret that I was finally ready and had begun researching other places to plant new roots. I looked at Nevada, Michigan, Florida, Boston, North Carolina, Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Virginia, West Virginia, Chicago, but Georgia captured my attention and grabbed my heart.

June 15th I began a new journey. I left the only place I've lived for thirty-nine years and now I have a new place to call home, Georgia.

When I finally told people I was leaving Baltimore so many were shocked, others tried to discourage me but there were the few, including my siblings, who encouraged me to step out into new territory.

I love my city, always have, always will! I appreciate all that it taught me. I am grateful for every experience, all the wonderful people I met, as well as the backbone I developed. Thank you Baltimore for helping me find meaning in life.
