You have absolutely no idea who is gonna come into your life. Eric Lolar at @lolarstrength has been great to me ever since I met him. I’m so glad God blessed me with the ability to help him out, but Eric has helped me MUCH MORE. #blessings#godschildren#brothersforlife
*Mommy Post* ✍🏾
Some days I question myself as a mother. “Am I doing this right?”
“Are they proud of me?”
“Do I make them happy?”
“What are they learning from me?”
“Who am I raising them to be?”
And then you wake up! And tell me
“Good morning!” Followed by kisses and I realize you’ve learned how to show love.
You tell me to “Have a good day at work?” And I realize that I’ve taught you how to encourage.
You walk with your brother to school, holding hands and give him a kiss before departing each other.
And I realize I’ve taught you what family means.
I come home to...”MOMMY!” and I realize that my presence alone brings you joy.
You put your shoes away neatly and fold your clothes.
When it’s time to eat you pray and wait for everyone to sit before eating.
You put away your plates and wash your hands.
Shower and dress yourself for bed.
Kiss me good night.
Say your good night prayer.
Tuck your brother in and sleep all through til the next morning to do it all over again.
And then it hits me I’ve raised not one but TWO extraordinary children to fit this very narrative. Though you are both different, you are one in the same. It’s as if you love, move and live from a single heart.
And there’s peace in the world again.
And I’m just overjoyed by the miracle of motherhood again.
And I remember that God chose me not for one but for two!
More importantly He chose me for you!
I love you my Sonshines 💕🌞
Thank You for making Love so easy. #BlackLove #BlackBoyJoy #MomOfBoys #RaisingMen #GodsChosen #GodsChildren #ForeverBrothers 🤜🏽🤛🏾 #LoveNeverFeltSoGood
Hello my name is_________
Samuel, “Heard by God”
My parents asked for me, and God granted their prayer 🙏🏼
I was welcomed to this world not too long ago and at the time I was able to communicate mostly by crying.
Then, my mom started putting sayings on my onesies to help her smile even when she felt like crying.
She’d write on my onesie funny sayings, Bible verses, positive words of encouragement, Spanglish things, I’m not even sure what it means, my name, I guess she really wants me to be friendly and introduce myself to anyone I encounter....
She even puts numbers on my shirts!
Do you all need help with counting?
Anyhow, we’re communicating much better now.
I think when I grow up, I’m going to put great things on my mommy’s shirts too.
And we can kiss, giggle and smile for awhile 👶🏽 What would you say on a onesie?
When you have a family member pass away. You have this hole in your heart and will miss them and the memories that you have cherished with them for all those years. When you get an abortion, you don’t “know” the child inside of you, but you still feel the same emptiness that you feel when a walking human being dies. Think about what you are doing before you murder and steal a life❤️

“Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.”
💇Today I went to my hair salon, sat down in the chair, and a sweet older lady was getting ready to leave with her husband after her hair style.
🤔Having no idea who I was, she stopped in front of me, looked me in the eyes, and said, “You are such a beautiful young lady.” My hair was a mess and once again, I was dressed in workout clothes. I responded with a heartfelt thank you. She continued, “I really do mean that, you are”.. with a big smile on her face as she was getting ready to walk out the door.
🦋I felt led to share this because the
Old me would have said, “Oh no I’m not,” and thought I’m so ugly.
Don’t we do this same thing to God?
😮We reject what He says —what His Word says— about us, and keep on accepting the lies and the torment; those hateful things about ourselves.
🌹Our whole life changes when we stop hating on ourselves and each other, and look to the Cross instead; bearing one another’s burdens, lifting each other up, and accepting the beauty that lies within. ✨What if we accepted the compliments and embraced them rather than rejecting the good things people say when they try to compliment and encourage us.
It’s not vanity, it’s about seeing what God sees when He looks at us with unveiled faces. It’s about accepting our position of boldness and beauty as His child— His Sons and Daughters— and walking in it.
🌸What if when we think something nice about someone, we actually tell them.. I always try to make a habit to do so because we never know what someone is facing that day. One statement of encouragement could change the course of a person’s whole day. #encouragement#liftupothers#Godschildren#looktothecross#jesussavesus#graceandmercyofgod#lifeslessonswithGod#hopeandlove#creatoroftheuniverse#beautyforashes

The Shepherd to Much-Afraid when she was questioning her worth...excerpt from “Hinds Feet on High Places” by Hannah Hurnard. Do you ever just stop and consider how God sees us? Not as our broken, unsure, insecure, anxious selves, but as complete, finished, saved, precious, loved children! He loves you. You are worthy. You are fair in His sight. You are a child of The Most High! #abide#hindsfeetonhighplaces#Godschildren#muchloved
"In light of all this, here’s what I want you to do. While I’m locked up here, a prisoner for the Master, I want you to get out there and walk—better yet, run!—on the road God called you to travel. I don’t want any of you sitting around on your hands. I don’t want anyone strolling off, down some path that goes nowhere. And mark that you do this with humility and discipline—not in fits and starts, but steadily, pouring yourselves out for each other in acts of love, alert at noticing differences and quick at mending fences."
In today’s day and age how often do you find yourself walking past strangers giving them no notice. I know for me I would walk past many people in which I myself would give them no notice as a result of my humanly flaws.
I find that even though I have been called to love and encourage those God has placed in my life, my mind can be so preoccupied on my current situations.
We have been called to live our lives for Christ, living with a heart to encourage, love and support those around us. Building the Kingdom of God one person at a time, ministering and leading by example as children of God.
Can I encourage you today, refocus your eyes on Christ and what you have been called to do. God loves you and will never leave you nor forsake you.
Don’t let your humanly ambitions overshadow your God spoken calling ✝️=💟
Yesterday we visited this sunflower field. The girls had a blast! The highlight of my day was meeting sweet SJ @scarlettjoy2015 . She walked up to me while we were waiting to use the restroom and said “ can she sit with me” it melted my heart. A mothers love shows though her children and I just want to thank this mama for raising such a genuine loving soul in such a cruel world. Swipe to see Miss SJ and be sure to give her a follow! Love has no color ! #GodsChildren
