Proverbs 4:23

Above all else guard your HEART, for it is the wellspring LIFE.

Wednesday, June 9, 2010


Life is everything i breathe, the up's and downs. the good and bad. as a good friend of mine once describe me he is "peacock happy and lion proud" to know me. i am peacock happy and lion proud to have the wonderful opportunities which arise in my life. knowing that i am a strong young optimistic african american woman living in america only to help better the society. i pray and hope God bless me with all i need to continue in my success from school, work, family, friends. dreams are also apart of life, in addition i want to make my dreams reality. zuri peaces is on the roll, i pray and ask god for favor. only to broaden my horizons. to sum everything up, life is what you make it. you must dream big if you want big things. dream small...well what is the point of dreaming if you dream small for your life!

"sacrifice, patience, swallowing pride, focus, learning new habits, self analyzing, growth, directing energy, the unexamined life is worthless, tiring."

Falling for my friend
My intentions from the beginnings were honorable you see, All I wanted to be was your friend, to be in your company. As time passed my feelings transformed and like evolved into love, And now I kneel praying for forgiveness from the one up above.
I can't lose our friendship; it means more to me than life But selfishly I know this will cause a lot of pain and strife. I know it's a delusion but I am holding it close to my heart And that's where it will stay forever to ensure we will never be apart.
A day might arise when I must make a declaration of guilt This day we will be able to share all the memories we have built, Not knowing what the future holds or if this is even a probability That one day our love will stand tall without instability

The Beauty Of Friendship.

Friendship is born at the moment when one person says to another: "What! You Too? I thought I was the only one." -C.S Lewis

Friends. What is a true friend? What is a friend in general? I often think about the expression when one say "My Friend." A friend is someone who is truely sent by God, ordained and appointed for you. Someone who is able to hear and understand not only your hurts, and cries. But they are someone who understand your happiness and joy. They feel for you. They forgive and show compassion. Knowing the two are linked they build you up as you build them up. A friend is supportive and loyal. Trustworthy and knowledgable, showing sympathy and empathy. All these qualities is true defintion of "Friendship" a huge difference from associate.

Knowing when you have been blessed with true friends is a beautiful gift divinely touched by God. The beauty of a true friend is knowing that they are strong and able to do what need to be done. Embracing the mystery of true friendship and sharing it amongst each other is a gorgeous experience which last forever. Though you may have fall out's you always seem to make up. Love also plays a major role in friendship. LOVE! The word love conveys all! It shapes the lives and relationship.

However I just thank God for shaping me into the young woman I am. Being a friend to many. Showing them love, compassion, sympathy, and my light which shines so bright because of Jesus Christ! The beauty of friendship is a mir relfection of Christ. "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command." -John 15:13-14 Christ love is greater than all and he is our friend! What more can we ask for? Follow his footsteps (word of God) and you will know the "Beauty Of Friendship" which come from him.

"A faithful friend is a strong defense: And he that have found such a friend has found a treasure." -Ecclesiastes

Natural Disater: Haiti, Prayers & Donations.

Wylclef Jean a Native, musician, humanitarian of Haiti has a Relief Effort which focues on rebuilding the country and providing community service programs.The "Yele Organization" founded in 2005.

Hopefully all are aware of the sad tragedy which struck Haiti Jan 12, 2010: "The Massive Earthquake." This earthquake happens to be one of the worst earthquakes. Taking the lives of many and destroying the capitol. Our people of Haiti are left with nothing. No food, water, and are in desperate need of medical attention.
Haiti being of African decent speaking creole and french and the poorest country in the region (Western Hemisphere) many people live in poverty. Already lacking the neccessities one may need to survive.
Because of this horrible natural disaster I find it is in one's best interest to be a blessing and do what one may be able to do to have an impact on the people of Haiti. Many people look over situations just as this, and when it is not in the media no more one may think their struggle is over. Haiti has been struggling as a country for years, and sending troops over is not enough.

If one can have enough FAITH size of a mustard seed. Haiti can be free, and they can have HOPE again. So if you are not sure of any organizations and relief efforts, I have posted a couple on the blog.

I am praying and doing all I can and will be making donations to legitimate relief efforts. I ask and pray that God touches your heart and lead you in a way to help. Because this can be us here in America.
God is Love! -1 John 4:19

Beautiful, Wonderful, Brown Skin Children.

Yet SHE is Unsure.

I decided to entitle this post "Yet SHE is unsure" because I will be making an effort to focus on ones insecurities within themself.

Here I go...

Insecurites come from many things, maybe while growing up one was picked on or one wasn't given the opportunity to fully express themself therefore they dont know who they are. I can come up with many reasons. However She is unsure. Unsure because her she lives a good life, loving family, and friends who care much about her. However they don't know her deepest pain, deepest feelings which causes her to be unsure. Have you ever been sure yet you are unsure? There come a point in our life when we grow up..meet many people, run into many obstacles and sometimes we fall yet getting up. Yet at times when meeting people, they can be a brick wall..a brick wall blocking sight of who you really are. This brick wall stands in front of her, not recognizing her for the beautiful young woman she is. Yet the wall stands there and over looks her. Causing her to question herself. She begin to point out all her flaws she feels that are not perfect. She question herself as a young women. Rather than celebrating herself, flaws and all. She fail to realize God makes no mistakes. NO MISTAKES!!! Yet she is confident she is not in some areas of her life. Feeling as if she need confirmation of the wordld. Even though she is beautiful inside out, and have a heart of gold. Her insecurities makes her unsure. Unsure of the fact of herself being apealing to his eye. Forget his eye, does she know she is apealing to God eyes? Unsure of the fact of herself not knowing what fits her best. Her physical features become a misconception to her. Her brain and wits are still there, not gone. Her mind plays tricks, tells her things that are not true.

Yet SHE is unsure.

When one begin to embrace their own mystery and begin to capture life possiblilites all will begin to fall in place. The same with one who struggle with their insecurities. I know we all battle with something in our life, even if it's not a physical aspect, we all struggle! We all wonder who is looking, why their looking, what their thinking etc...We will never know. There will always be someone who is better, smarter, prettier, than you and I. Way of life, we are not perfect. Yet God created us in the image of Him. And when he created us, he knew very well knew how our physical features will be, our characteristics and so on...So why the insecurities? I know why. Insecurities come because we are unsure, they come because people in the world dont know how to accept one for who they are, what they look like. Some people just dont know true beauty. And if one is truely beautiful and they dont embrace it, it leaves them in a world of "unknowingness." Not knowing how to embrace yourself as an indvivdual. You as an indvivdual come with a lot from your race, background, politics...If one just embrace every fragment about their self and focus in on their life issues one may not struggle as bad. I know I am not perfect and I struggle with much, however I've taught myself to embrace my life mystery. I know my King, My father, My god set me free from trying to fit in the world that easily grabs holds and twists my/your identity. But I believe God can deliver me from the temptation to let others shape my identity and from my desire to please others around me. "I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; wonderful are your works and soul knows it well." -Psalm 139:14

Yet SHE is unsure.

She is unsure because she allow the world to grab hold of her identity. Speaking of SHE...I speak for all men and women. For all who are struggling. I pray: The King Help You and I find our identity in Him. Set us free. For we dont want to be molded any longer by man made idols and human values. We want you to fashion our character and make all a reflection of you.

Walk with your head held high chest out!

A little segment of my 2010!

2010 will hold what? A question I constantly ask myself. Looking back at 2009 all I can say is "Rejoice." Made it to see a new an exciting year. Hopefully! Apparently 2010 hold many blessings, mistakes, struggles, and obstacles just as 2009. New year yet a new day. Life goes on, one really can't say 2010 will be good straight through. I sometimes ponder on the my struggle I face. Because your struggle you face makes progress. Bettering me/you as a driven idivivual. That's if you are driven...My 2010 holds much, and I put all circumstances good and bad in my Father Hands!
