PEACE: Waiting brings peace

Our lives are so demanding and we’re always in a rush to meet expectations so that outcomes are what we’ve planned. Sometimes the plan is derailed, which brings discomfort and anxiety. But can we build our muscle for unconditional patience? Can we release the control we think we have on the Universe? Taking time to […]

PEACE: You Good?

We are in the season of giving, but we can’t forget about ourselves. Every now and then we should stop and say, “Hey YOU!” Be the voice that reminds yourself how wonderful you are and to wake up your intention to take care of yourself. It could be a silent walk, going to get your […]

PEACE: Water: A Love Story!

Water, I love the way you make me feel. You quench my thirst with coolness that engulfs my body and clears obstructions from the passages that give me life. You fill me with refreshment when dryness tries to stop movement and growth. You nourish my physical being and give my locks their long silky dance. […]

PEACE: We face what comes

The emotional strength of a woman is God’s gift to the world. She holds the tide from threats and disasters. The storm comes when we least expect it, but that rumble within your heart will ignite your armor. Protection is not external. In all reality it is an internal manifestation of one’s will. Your personal […]

PEACE: Making peace with what you have

Have you ever really taken a “peace” assessment of the things that really make you feel relaxed and calm: when the worry of day-to-day issues are outside your door as you step into the sanctuary of your castle? The things that bring you affirmation of self should never be taken for granted. The space to […]

PEACE: Queendom

We can learn so much from those who have come before us: style, grace, character, activism, wisdom, and strength shown through silent tears. We should wear our crowns and walk with pride as everyday conscious acts. As we face adversity, our ancestral rods hold our backs upright as we fearlessly face down the storms on […]

PEACE: United WE RISE!

We are living in a day where there is so much division causing ongoing hostility, violence, and death. Those of us who are God fearing must ask the question: “What part am I playing in the consistent divide and the division within my own community?” We all can be honest with ourselves and speak the […]

PEACE: Reciprocity Overload

How often do you hear — or have someone imply — that “you owe me”? We are so conditioned to believe that we must repay others for the things we’ve received. The whole idea of “paying it forward” means that you too will be blessed. Even when we deprive ourselves of something, we expect a […]

PEACE: Exhale …

These are challenging times, and the trauma of the past year sometimes prompts us to rush back to norms we have grown accustomed to being part of our lives. Take a breath. Move in slower motion, and take time to reflect and think about your next step or the option to stay still. We all […]

PEACE: Stay in the moment

Life moves so fast and sometimes we are eager to keep up or race past it. When our stride moves at a fast pace, we leave something behind or forgotten in our souls. Those forgotten moments are precious for our peace, when time stands still and you can notice the springtime hummingbird buzzing at the […]
