Yea, you read that right. I’m new to Bikram (hot) Yoga, but I consider myself an official yogi. And when I practice, I practice in shorts and a sports bra. Yes, I have excess fat. I’m technically obese. My stomach is round and hangs down and I don’t care. I was the fat girl whoContinue reading “Why I Practice Yoga Shirtless”

Vote With the Spirit
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. (Galatians 5:16 ESV) I had someone give me a new way of understanding how to “walk in the Spirit” last week and it finally made it click for me. So I wanted to share it with you guys.Continue reading “Vote With the Spirit”
Not *JUST* One, Just… One
A friend of mine offered to give me tickets to a game before. She offered to give ME ticketS to a game. A couple years ago I won a contest. I sent in my application. People voted for me. After voting results came in I was given TWO passes to a festival. When I wasContinue reading “Not *JUST* One, Just… One”

She told a story of when the leaders of the church asked the people in the congregation what they needed.

“Luxury of Obliviousness”
When I was 17, I met a girl in one of my classes who was 19. She explained that as a result of that class she realized that she had never been seriously aware of the fact that she was White. She never thought about it. Why? Because her mother purposely taught her to beContinue reading ““Luxury of Obliviousness””
For a while I was waiting for my mourning to end so that my morning would come. Then I realized Morning had already come, but I was too busy mourning to enjoy it. Wake up outta your funk! It’s morning!

One of the subplots features a couple who can’t get pregnant and during all their infertility woes they find out the husband’s mother has cancer. I won’t tell their whole story, but I will spoil partContinue reading “It Was Never Even A Thought”
When I was 17, I was in the Michigan State University Gospel Choir and we had an engagement at the Kellogg Center on campus. In the vestibule T-shirts were being sold for $15. One of them said “ASK” and had the Ask, Seek, Knock scripture on it. Me being the smartie I can be atContinue reading “ASK”
You’re Not Ready
If you have a bottle of water in one hand and juice in the other, it’s kinda silly for me to ask if you’re thirsty and offer you more water. If you have an empty bag in one hand and an empty bucket in the other, it wouldn’t make sense for me to offer youContinue reading “You’re Not Ready”
Doesn’t Quite Fit. Don’t force it.
I hate when I take stuff out of its box and can never successfully get it back in there perfectly. It’s almost like it didn’t come in that box cuz I just cannot figure out where everything is supposed to go so that it’ll be smooth and compact like it was when I first gotContinue reading “Doesn’t Quite Fit. Don’t force it.”
