Happy Valentine's Day & Late B'Day Post

Happy Valentine's day! I'm sure this weekend will be busy for everyone so I wanted to get this post in quickly.

Also...I can't believe I didn't post on my Handsome Boys birthday {Feb. 5th..23 years old}....This child is just GOOD, inside and out. I love his spirit. He's like a gentle giant.


This picture is so appropriate for this holiday...LOVE. This is a picture of him and his nephew Jay. To me it expresses love at it's fullest. ***By the way, this picture was taken June 2006.

Whew...What a Break


Hi Everyone! Sorry I've been MIA, just had a few things going on that I needed to take care of...you know how it is. I did however make time to visit many of your blogs and comment on a few. I loved hearing about all the fun you gals had at Blissdom! I may have to go next year.

I have to share this with you guys. Last night I went to bed early (well..early for me 10:45) and slept pretty good, however I awakend at 4am. I mean WIDE awake. I could not go back to sleep. So when my alarm went off at 6:15am you can imagine my mood. Got up showered and dressed and skipped my little happy butt out the door determined to have a good day. I even turned off "The Steve Harvey Morning Show" and popped in my Mary Mary cd to get my praise on. As I turned onto I-77..ALL not one, but ALL three lanes were backed up past the overpass...ARGHHHH!!! There goes my happy happy joy joy mood right out the window....Mary Mary praising the Lord fadeing into the background. Ok Lisa get it together, it's not always about you. Some poor person is probably in an accident up ahead....yep..in the rearview mirror hear come the flashing lights and sirens.

At this point I'm pretty ashamed of myself for all my selfish thoughts. You know, how I was going to be late to work...How if I had known this I could have stopped for a Cappucino on the way in...me me me. Suddenly, the traffic began to flow and there were not one, but three cars banged up on the side of the interstate with two EMS on the scene. I immediately began praying for the poor individuals involved.

I pumped up my Mary Mary just as they were singing "Still My Child". Such a beautiful song. And then I really listend to the words...

"Still My Child"

He had many of bad habits
He was trying hard to break
And every time he thought it got better
He would make another mistake
Though he knows he's far from perfect
He is trying to live right
He asked me to ask You Father
Would You hear his prayer tonight?

[Chorus:]
He said tell him that I really need him
And I really want to change
The next time you talk to God
Would you please mention my name
Oh, tell Him that I really love Him
And although it's been a while
Ask Him for me am I still His child

I asked her how she was doing
She said not so good lately
Then I told her girl you know
You can always talk to me
She said these days haven't been so happy
Haven't had much peace of mind
Now I know that I should be praying
But I haven't had much time

[Chorus]

I know the answer to your question
Yes the Father still loves you
But sometimes when you have children
You don't always like what they do
So when go to your heavenly Father
Say Lord I love You
And when you ask Him for forgiveness
This is what He'll say to you

I sent a message in the wind
When the birds sang their song
And when you went to sleep last night
I told the moon shine all night long
Just wanted you to talked to me
And I know it's been a while
And to answer the question
You are still my child

This verse in paticular:

I sent a message in the wind
When the birds sang their song
And when you went to sleep last night
I told the moon shine all night long
Just wanted you to talked to me
And I know it's been a while
And to answer the question
You are still my child


It brought tears to my eyes...that's all He wanted last night...all He wanted this morning...All He ever wants. Thank you Lord for reminding me.
Blessings
