The Truth about Liberty & Justice & Freedom

Posted on

Once upon a time, Liberty & Justice & Freedom were not granted to all. Welcome to the truth of it. Keep reading…

The United States of America’s true Independence Day is today! June 19th, not July 4th. 241 years ago, those original 13 colonies demanded and declared their independence from British rule. July 4, 1776, this nation celebrated its freedom, however not all were free! June 19, 1865, almost 100 years later, slavery came to an end. My ancestors were not yet equal, but at least they were free! We’re still fighting that battle to equality. One thing I’ll stand on today and claim as equally mine is this hot mess of a nation. My lineage may run back to the inhumane injustices of slavery, the belly of slave ships that swallowed Mandingo Warriors whole, the blood drenched coast of Africa, the unforgiving jungle of my ancestors home continent. But truth be told, we are all many generations removed from some immigrant. Be it by choice or force. We’re here now. Not slave. Not nigger. Not negroe. Not ‘other’. Not black. Not African American………..American. Happy Juneteenth. #ThisNationsHistory #TheTruthFrees #TrueIndependenceDay #Juneteenth

I am and I am not my hair… I am.

Posted on

I am my hair. Often adorned and embellished, this external extension of me, this visual exterior show of me. Be it long, short or somewhere in between, there is no denying that I am my hair. Internal factors sometimes directly affect our hair. Those that employ some semblance of a healthy regimen (diet and lifestyle) are rewarded with vibrant, lustrous hair. Stress can literally wreak havoc on a head of hair! Causing dry, brittle hair and serious breakage. Hair loss is sometimes the result of side effects of medicines and aggressive  medical treatments (see hair loss and chemotherapy, http://www.healthline.com/health/chemotherapy#SideEffects3). Have you ever heard of alopecia (http://www.healthgrades.com/conditions/alopecia)? Is it safe to say that the presence or absence of a thing so seemingly simple as hair, can contribute to the overall build up or break down of ones’ personality? Is hair then an environmental factor? I did after all grow up without my father, but I been rocking this hair for 30+ years. Nevermind if the walls could talk. If our hair could talk, oh the tales each head of hair would tell! I believe that consciously and/or subconsciously, hair does affect our day to day lives. Another component which is me… My crown and glory. My strength. I am my hair.

“Every ex is like a dealer serving my favorite brand of drug. They know what I like & how I like it and each is all too willing to give me what I want! It may seem free, the parting of legs, but it comes with a heavy price to pay…”

Forgiveness Is A Stone

Posted on

I searched for it amongst those who have easily found it. And although subconsciously they stumbled upon it and present it with open hands to any willing to admire its beauty, we demand that they throw it away… “Toss it over the fence!” we say, with nary another look or thought. When I finally realized the significance of the very thing that has been naturally discovered by children & all too readily dismissed by adults, I set out in search of my own.

For fear that the playground had been rid of any overlooked, I made a beeline for the outskirts. I walked the perimeter of the playground. I scoured every square inch over the fence. I scanned frantically, but carefully and just as I was about to give up, I found one. A tad too big to fit snugly in one’s pocket, not to mention rough & jagged. But I knew better than to disregard it.

In my pocket it went. A weekend passed and I nearly forgot about it until my hands came in contact with the ugly truth of it. So rough & jagged. But it was there nonetheless, reminding me. A brand new search proved to be much more successful. I spotted it within seconds. Small and smooth. Pale in color. So unlike the ones that had been banned from the playground. The only trouble was, maneuvering my hand to fit through the chain link fence to retrieve it. I scraped my hand a little and upon closer inspection, the flaws of it are quite visible. But it’s okay! It doesn’t have to be perfect as long as I’m reminded every time I think of it nestled snugly in my pocket that forgiveness is a stone. {John 8:7; They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”}

Forgiveness is a mountain not realistically held in the palm of our hands. But something so seemingly unimportant as a stone, can have great significance. It is a reminder that forgiveness is not a choice, but a command. If we wish to be forgiven, we must first forgive. {Matthew 6:14-15; For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.}

Seek deep within the heart of Christ. That is where the seed of forgiveness can be found.

Carnal Sobriety, Day 3

Just what does it mean to have an addiction?

“Here I am thinking I’m semi perfect. No addiction wracking my body. Sadly, I’ve been misinformed. Although usually referring to drugs, the definition of addiction goes much deeper than that. An addiction is any compulsive dependency on a substance, thing and/or activity …”

“Every situation is unique. I’m almost opting to not date during this ‘carnal sobriety’. But the approval dependent, absolute control freak, loser magnet, sex craving addict in me is telling my body that this is not a good idea.”
