Quote of the Day

Those who believe in a higher power aren't elite, gifted, favored or privileged! In fact most are challenged and face more trials than imaginable! What they are is forgiven, loved, grace filled and this worlds greatest warriors!!

Road often traveled......

So there is a strip of downtown Birmingham that I've grown to be very fond of.....not for its beauty or desired community. No, it's actually one of the worst areas of the city. As fast as I have to travel down it, I want to be out to see that interstate sign again. You see it is the road that gets me from UAB hospital to the interstate back home.

The other day I was heading back down that same road, and a thought came over me. How many memories have down this route. Over the past five years many. Some that were so difficult not even the windshield wipers on high, could have helped me see from my tears anyway. So many travels of disappointment whether cancer struggles or infertility. Yet then so many of immense revelation and joy.....after cancer was cleared, Gods miracle divine intervention to have my son and yes again seeing a girl written across that ultrasound screen.

I thought the other day how much I had grown each trip in that same spot and also how much I've continued to struggle. There it dawned on me. No matter what the time looks like, never will it look the same. We travel down familiar roads each day. Whether it be on our way home from work, to the grocery store or back home to see friends and family. We always notice that something has changed. Things look different, seasons change and "change"being the constant factor that we will always know.

Life is just like these roads. Worn by routine, storms and journeys. There can always be improvements made, but the underneath always has a story to tell. So next time you are cruising down your familiar path make note of the beauty of today. Tomorrow will always have another story to tell........

Proud day as I can to boast about one of my greatest friends and college roomies first single released today on iTunes and already hitting the airways. I told her this morning that sometimes people only see where we are today! They have no clue our journey and hardship to get here! It takes work, determination and so beyond what outside beauty could tell! I love you sweet friend, that little white mustang would be so proud of you today:)

I am a person of class, integrity and grace. People are in awe of my resilience, faith and steadfastness for truth and honesty.  I will be an open book. I will use my experiences to change lives. I will always put faith and then family first.  I will love with the guide of growth. I will not be afraid to take chances.  I will listen. I will pray.  I will get to know Jesus. I will forgive and understand weakness.  I will live on earth as it is in heaven.  I will lead by example. I will love my body and be compassionate too it.  I will create a glowing aura that blinds passerbyers. I will focus on my gifts and utilize them to make an impact. I will let go of what I am not. I will be responsible and care for the things God has lent to me.  I will not be afraid to be different. I will profess my faith.  Love will be my guide.  I will listen to the Holy Spirit and let it guide me.  I will live in peace not fear.  I will live for the present.  I will preach to the devil daily.  I will be a spiritual warrior.
