Verse of The Day : Oct. 4th

One out of many things that I like about the Bible app, is how they show your “streak” of how many days you’ve used their app. It’s actually a great method that’s helped me to get into the word even more. 

I always set countless reminders on my phone to read the word first thing when I wake up or during the middle of the day. This streak count is perfect for me. It actually gets my competitiveness going; making sure I do whatever it takes not to lose my streak lol. 😅 
Tonight I’m ending with the verse of the day. It comes from the book of Hebrews. It shines light on something that I consistently ask The Lord for help on. 

Compassion / True Agape (Godly Love). 

As humans, we only have so much energy to deal with people. 

Not to mention, sometimes it’s hard to love others especially when some of them “make your skin crawl”. Lol 

Side note: “skin crawling” comes from the flesh. 

No matter the case, I have to separate my spirit from the thoughts of my flesh. 😌 I find myself asking for this fruit of the Holy Spirit because I can use as much as I can get. 

Best thing about it all, Jesus has more than enough agape to go around. 

Simply by asking our sweet Savior, I notice such a swift refreshment in my spirit. Now, not only wanting to do good for others & love them… but actually walking it out. 💜

Have a good night everyone!!!! 

Do not neglect to do good, to contribute [to the needy of the church as an expression of fellowship], for such sacrifices are always pleasing to God.


My Love for Succulents!!! 🌵🌸

As my list of hobbies continue to grow by the day. A month ago… I discovered my love for succulents. If you don’t know, they are desert plants that grow at a slower pace and are not as “high maintenance” as other plants

I discovered them as I visited the Dallas Farmer’s Market. They were pretty cheap. Let me warn you, your money will certainly go into the products to upkeeep them. The cacti products are a lot harder to find compared to regular flower/plant items. 

I love learning how to grow and keep life flowing within something. I have 0 kids. I only have a dog and a turtle…. so having to take care of another life form is interesting for me. 

The newest desert baby (as I like to call ‘em) in my collection is my ruby red ball cacti aka moon catcus. She is gorgeous!!!! It is actually two cacti grafted into one. Which is more fascinating to me. Apparently these moon cacti’s can grow flowers during the summer/spring time. 

If you overwater them, they die. 
If you underwater them, they die. 
If you don’t provide nutrients for them in their soil, they die. 
If they don’t have too much sun, they die. 
If they have TOO much sun, they can become “sunburned” and die. 
So far, they haven’t DIED. So I must be doing okay so far right? Lol l!!!
I bought a specific type of soil and plant food them as well. 

Hopefully the next time I update you guys on their progress… they are still thriving and prospering!!!!! 🙂

If you have always wanted a unique plant that isn’t a flower or medicinal plant… try a cacti! They are great for gifts and various decoration around the house. 


Good Morning Readers,


It is the 2nd day of my birthday month. As I woke up this morning, I automatically start to walk out my daily routine of getting ready for work. I so happened to check my twitter account and notice there’s devastating coverage over a mass shooter injuring over 200 innocent people in Las Vegas while they attended a music festival.
My heart goes out to all of the people who are affected by this. I actually go to Las Vegas every year with my family &, I too, often attend music festivals…..
I cannot imagine how terrifying this could have been for them all. I didn’t intend to write a post today but this is heavily on my heart and I cannot shake it.
During this day, please send a prayer up for these people and their families. 
With the topic of gun control, I am surely caught in the middle.


Knowing that this world would start to plummet, I went ahead and got my concealed handgun license as potential protection. I believe it is important for women to be knowledgeable of how to handle a gun. Unfortunately, this world likes to target women and children … so I rather be “prepared” as much as I can.

I also feel like there needs to be deeper background checks when a gun is purchased to eliminate unstable people getting ahold of a fire arm. At the same time, the truth of the matter is…. “bad guys / bad people” will always have easy access to getting ahold of certain fire arms from the streets. A more thorough background screening could potentially eliminate a purchase for people who are harmlessly wanting to own a gun (like myself).
I am not sure….. but SOMETHING has to be in place. All in all, today I will be thinking about those who are now injured/deceased due to an reckless, insane JERK!
