Worry Warts….don’t be one…it’s not cute! So, clearly, this post has nothing to do with actual warts…but aren’t you glad?!? Lol…who wants to read about warts? Let alone write about them. Mmmkay…background story….I was a worrier once. Yep…a worrier…I definitely don’t mean warrior! I used to worry about EVERYTHING. In fact, if I wasn’t thinking or worrying about something, I was afraid that I was forgetting something. I was your classic “worry wart”…and my case was ugly!
Today, I had a thought, so I posted it. The thought was, “Believe in YOU the way you believe in them.” I posted it, not just to get others thinking, but for myself. You see, I’m a supporter. I am REALLY GOOD at supporting people (I’ve got references). I’m good at sharing their posts, praying for them, being there for them, and at their events, and even volunteering to do stuff. I mean I am an amazing supporter (if I do say so myself). I’m also a pretty good encourager.
“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 Sooooo….I’ve seen a ton of memes that say something regarding coconut oil solving all problems…like the ones I’ve posted below….hence the title of this blog. LOL! Now, if all these were true, there would be a coconut oil shortage and a lot of grease stains EVERYWHERE! The news headline would say, “City in uproar as women pour coconut all over EVERYTHANG!!!” Lol. Uhhh….anyho
It’s summer time, folks! And what does everyone LOVE in the summer??? Yooouuuu guessed it…ICE CREAM!!! Now, I can’t really have regular ice cream (I’m lactose intolerant). In case you didn’t know (which you probably didn’t), my latest food obsession is Halo Top ice cream! It’s amazing because I can eat the ENTIRE pint and it’s under 400 calories AND there is protein in it, so it’s healthy; and it doesn’t make me feel like crap after I eat it. My favorite is the birthday cake
Heeeyyyyy y’all! So, I’ve had an amazing SONday! I’ve even had my ice cream (Halo Top, birthday cake) and I’m on my couch. Okay…here’s my story….. Soooo…I sing on the praise team and in the choir at my church (Christ Church Apostolic, Indianapolis, IN…..shameless plug) and today, our colors were navy blue and white. Well, guess who COMPLETELY forgot about our uniform….I’ll give you a moment to think on it………
If you guessed me, YOU ARE CORRECT! Tell ‘em what they’ve one Johnn
Hey y’all!!! A SUPER SATURDAY to ya!!! I pray that your day is off to an amazing start and continues to be great! If it isn’t, know that I’m praying that it gets better! And. Here’s. My. Story…… Two years ago, when I began my employment for the public school system, I had to get used to being called by my sir name. Let me tell you what I mean…..you see, during each of my work experiences, I’ve always been called Alecia or Miss Alecia (by my kiddos). Every name badge, note
Hey y’all! Happy Friday Eve!!!!!!! Okay…so, my mom is in town and she brought my bruder’s (yes, bruder) kiddos to visit. They fly from out west to visit us for the summer. My mumzie wanted to go hang out at a couple stores while the kiddos stayed at my house with me today……No problem! I’m a professional aunt…I have references. 😉 Anyhoo…they’ve ALL (3 of them…11, 7, 2) been up for about 2 hours now and they have been a band, sang, played hide n seek, and talked REALLY lo
“But God comandeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 Christ wanted you so much that He died, WILLINGLY, to save your life….BEFORE you had life. He pursues you and lets you know how much He loves you. He m Jesus won’t ever leave your side and He won’t turn His back on you. “…for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” (Hebrews 13:5) He ALWAYS listens to you…your problems, complaints, joys……ALL OF IT! “I wa
“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” Colossians 1:16-17 Okay…I’m sure you all are tired of me by now but I have something to tell you………. ALL things were created by God. Like….EVERYTHING! And I’m sitting here wondering how stuff will g
When you barbecue, most times, you prep the meat by seasoning it and letting it marinate. You are careful to get the fire just right and you watch it to be sure the food won’t burn. When baking a cake from scratch, you prepare by allowing the eggs and butter to sit out of the refrigerator until they are room temperature. You Alright…I’m not just trying to make you hungry (although I probably did myself in at 10:08 p.m.), but I’m trying to get you focused on preparation. Prep
Ideally, when we choose friends, it’s usually not on purpose….not as an adult anyway. I mean, I don’t really think that we look at each other like, “Oh yeah…that’s gonna be my friend….just watch!” Well, some may, but that’s a different blog. EHEMMMM….so…we join together in this friendship thinking that now we have someone to hang with…lunch with…movie with…talk with….and then, in some rare occasion, we become “besties”. Now, what makes a bestie??? Each person probably has th
The other day, I walked into the Starbucks where I was previously employed cause…you know… “Sometimes you wanna go, where everybody knows your name……” Uh…yeah…anyhoo…when I walked in, I saw my former manager putting up a display so I said “hey…how are you?”(whenever I go in during one of her shifts, we chat). She looks up and responds with, “Hello Alecia, how are you? Oh my gosh! You have lost weight! I mean, you look good but you have really lost weight.” I reply with, “real
I learned that, in order to be most effective, even if you are in a disagreeable situation, your attitude MUST be in check at ALL TIMES. And…well…I failed! I failed to check MY attitude…I failed MISERABLY. And, it’s really a bummer too. I was disappointed in myself, for hours afterward. I mean, down in the dumps disappointed in my attitude and my lack of positivity. I prayed…I even cried (no, I really did cry). Now, you gotta know me to understand how hard I am on mysel
I won’t sit here and claim that I get approached all the time or that every guy and his brother notices me. Nope…I’m not that one. But, I’ve had a few recent experiences that have caused me to worry about our young men. And this time, not in a life or death manner. No, this is more of a social disturbance. It disturbs me because, I guess, it’s acceptable. They don’t say “excuse me miss,” or “hello.” Instead, they yell out of car windows and stare at you. It’s kinda sa
