DEFINITION OF A SOUL-MATE

"People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so out of control that you have to transform your life..." -Elizabeth Gilbert

IF A MAN WANTS YOU

If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away.

If he doesn’t want you, nothing can make him stay.

Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior.

Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.

Stop trying to change yourselves for a relationship that’s not meant to be.

Slower is better.

Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy.

If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve

then heck no, you can’t "be friends."

A friend wouldn’t mistreat a friend.

Don’t settle. If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is.

Don’t stay because you think "it will get better." You’ll be mad at yourself

a year later for staying when things are not better.

The only person you can control in a relationship is you.

Avoid men who’ve got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women.

He didn’t marry them when he got them pregnant,

Why would he treat you any differently?

Always have your own set o…

KISS by Prince

For years my parents couldn't understand my fascination with Prince; until they heard KISS. This is their favorite Prince song. My Mother continues to be a fan. Enjoy! :)

MY PRESIDENT IS BLACK!

Image
In March of 2003, President Bush declared war on Iraq. On December 14, 2011, President Barack Obama ended the war on Iraq. I know it's been a long and tedious process, but let's celebrate what our President has done. He ended a tragic war! No matter what your political views; we need to give credit where credit is due. Below is an article I found on the statistics concerning the war; the money spent, and the lives lost. Forget GOD bless America. GOD bless us ALL!


U.S. SPENDING IN IRAQ

Spent & Approved War-Spending - About $1 trillion of US taxpayers' funds spent or approved for spending through 2011.

Lost & Unaccounted for in Iraq - $9 billion of US taxpayers' money and $549.7 milion in spare parts shipped in 2004 to US contractors. Also, per ABC News, 190,000 guns, including 110,000 AK-47 rifles.

Lost and Reported Stolen - $6.6 billion of U.S. taxpayers' money earmarked for Iraq reconstruction, reported on June 14, 2011 by Special inspector general for …

BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
~Matthew 5:9



Blessed are the peacemakers - Those who strive to prevent contention, strife, and war; who use their influence to reconcile opposing parties, and to prevent lawsuits and hostilities in families and neighborhoods. Every man may do something of this; and no man is more like God than he who does it.

Being a child of divorce is not easy, but it’s never been my excuse. My Mother would never allow it. She always considered those who made excuses to be weak. She never made excuses for herself; so making excuses wasn’t even a consideration. As a little girl I lived with my Grandfather while my parents went through their divorce. It wasn’t that unusual for my Mother. She watched her own parents go through a painful divorce. Grandfather left Detroit after losing his grocery store and property. It was an even sadder occasion because my Grandmother was the reason the family lost the business. Even with that …

I’ve been struggling with what to do or how to celebrate my Grandfather’s life. I’m in his infamous pink house. If you didn’t know; pink was one of his favorite colors. Why not a pink house? He was a quiet and reserved man, but this is the same man who ran for political office at a time when a black man was told to sit down and know his place. He was a man’s man. Every color has meaning. When I look from a biblical standpoint I find that pink represents a passion for Christ; the Rose of Sharon, and GOD’s glory. In psychology the color has been known to modify erratic behavior because of the calming effect. It is known as a sign of comfort. The pink carnation means, “I will never forget you.” Now I see why my Grandfather became fixated on that color.

Time and time again I’ve heard friends and family express how he was a blessing to them. This house was a refuge for anyone who needed it. The little pink house was my house when my parents divorced and my Mother needed to know that her f…
