Look At God!

Happy Sunday y'all!

I'm a person of strong faith. Sometimes I am tested and sometimes I fail. All I can do is pray for God's continued guidance and continuously seek Him, in good and bad times.

I often struggle with how much I should share with you guys...a lot of times I will write a post and then edit it before the email is sent...still fully aware that some of you may read it before I make edits. :)

Today little Boogie and I went to church for the first time. I usually never make it to Sunday School. Today was no exception, they just ran a little over the allotted time. I'm glad I caught the end. The message was "Sometimes you have to give up your right to be right to be seen as righteous in the eyes of God."

During my pregnancy I struggled with anger. I was mad at everyone. This kept everyone at a distance and now I realize that the help that I didn't get was my fault. It wasn't their fault that I was mad. I was mostly mad at myself. But during those 9 months, I found reasons to be mad at everyone, God included.

See, something happened to me that I never EVER expected. When I found out I was pregnant and told the father of my child that we were going to have a baby, his response was mean and cruel. I never would have expected this from him, but that's what I got. And that was the last time I spoke to him. I have always tried to be an honest and good hearted (is that a word? IDK). Anywho...he and I have history and I would have never expected him to just walk away but he did. This caused me to harbor a lot of anger and resentment. I'm working to move past it though...I'm still a work in progress. God ain't through with me yet!

This has been a very difficult transition, but I'm working through it and I am very thankful and grateful for the angel He allowed to escape from Heaven and come into my life.

I say all of this to get to a point...the Message from today's service was about the potter. I don't have the scriptural references with me...but basically when the potter makes a piece that is imperfect, it is broken and reworked until it is perfected. This may take many times to accomplish, but the potter NEVER gives up. I am an imperfect piece that has been broken down and right now the Master Potter is reworking me. Building me up to what He would have me to be.

I believe it to be true that God doesn't make any mistakes. So even though my situation is not what I would consider as ideal, I know there is a bigger work in progress. My circumstance IS NOT my conclusion! I continue to pray for him and that one day he will decide to take a part in our daughter's life.

I would like to give a big thanks to all of those that pray for me and Trinity and those that had and still have my back, even when I was (for lack of a better word) a bitch. Thank you guys for continuing to read and I pray God continues to bless you all as well!

I hope you all have a great week!

Black Panther: Movie Review

Please tell me y'all have seen the movie? If you haven't, don't read this post!

Let me give you a little bit of my back story on this Marvel Cinematic Universe. I am a Marvel fan. I don't read the comics, but the movies?! I'm here for them. Some of them are blah, but I watch them anyway. Why? Because usually they overlap and share stories. So, in preparation for the opening of Black Panther, I watched ALL of the Marvel movies in order of the stories, not the release date. I followed CNET's guide and it was pretty accurate. I did not watch the TV shows because I would still be watching. You don't have to. The movies will fill you in pretty well.

Now, for what I thought.

1. This movie was beautiful! The colors, the wardrobes, the technology, the natural hair, the beautiful black people that starred in this film, it was amazing!

2. The women. OMG. The WOMEN! The strong women in the movie inspired me. Okoye makes me want to shave my hair back off. Nakia makes …

Pura Vida!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

Soup(er) Sunday!

This past Sunday I hosted a Crafty with Canon party. I won the party through House Party (I love this site!).

Initially I was planning to do a few different finger foods. Well, the temperature dropped and I wanted soup. And chili. So I made both! And my sister also made a soup that was super delicious. I used my usual go to chili recipe, except I doubled up the seasonings because I didn't have a chili seasoning pack. I think it actually tasted better! I made it in my electric pressure cooker! It was so much faster and it tasted better than it usually does. I'm in love with my pressure cooker and would like another one. Anyone have one they want to give me?

Anyway, we had fun exploring the Canon Pixma printer and printing out photos and making cute little frames! But the food was really the star of the show! I'm going to link to all of the recipes because aside from small adjustments, none of them were my own!

Broccoli and Cheese Soup.
This was a big hit! It was my first tim…
