Cook with Me: Tuna & Asparagus

Good Morning, I pray your morning is off to a good start, if not I pray that it gets there. During my 21 Days of Prayer and fasting, I gave up all meat except for seafood. I basically adopted a pescatarian diet with a few eggs. It really transformed my life, and I plan to […]

Enthusiasm

Enthusiasm. Life can be dreary at times. It seems like you are walking around in a fog daily. After a while, the fog is so consistent that you can’t recall how a clear day looks. I have experienced this before, and that may be the case for many others. It wasn’t until yesterday that I […]

Gratefulness

Gratefulness. “For who do you know that really knows you, knows your heart? And even if they did, is there anything they would discover in you that you could take credit for?

Gentleness

Gentleness. I have always disliked constant abrasiveness. Some would see that as a sign of “weakness”; however, I see it as turning away from the unnecessary. Yes, sometimes the dirt and scum are so built up in the pot that you have to use something firmer to clean it out, but if you use something […]

Self-Control

Self-control. Having self-control is hard at times. I think what makes it so hard is that a lot of times we react subconsciously only thinking about what we have done after the consequences occur. We do not have to live our lives this way. We can wake up daily choosing to respond to our spirit […]
