#TWT – Spring

Plant

the seed

of your desire.

Pray

but work

until you tire.

Release

always

keeping the faith.

Hope springs eternal!

Yep, It’s Valentine’s Day!

Whether you woke up with some excitement for today or nothing but contempt for “Cupid”, the important thing is

YOU WOKE UP!


Even if you don’t have the love of a significant other or amity amongst your neighbors, always be mindful to

LOVE YOURSELF!


If it’s chocolate you crave, there may still be some on sale from Halloween. Treat yourself, even if someone else blessed you with milk chocolatey goodness because one thing for certain is

YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MUCH CHOCOLATE!!!


And whether you find yourself in the arms of Mr./Ms. Right or Mr./Ms. Right Now, remember

COVID DOESN’T TAKE HOLIDAY!


By default, we all inherited a village of bloggers we’ve bonded with over written word. Hopefully, my words reach all who need to receive them this Valentine’s Day:

THIS MAY BE THE ONE DAY YOU FEEL ALONE/LONELY BUT FOR SOME, THIS IS THE ONE DAY THEY FEEL LOVED.

The Devil Is Defeated

Heavy burdens beyond control

That’s the devil trying to steal

Kill and destroy, attack with zeal

Leaving a giant gaping hole

Wreaking havoc deep in your soul

Tiny pieces left to rebuild

To find a way you must be willed

Just spread your wings, take flight and soar

Light of your life shines bright once more

No dreams deferred or unfulfilled


“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
‭‭— John‬ ‭10:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Bravo, Queen!

My response to Wordless Wednesday inspired more that I couldn’t ignore. I wouldn’t rest knowing I simply posted a picture of Cicely Tyson without recognizing her beauty, tenacity, and brilliance.

Ms. Tyson was a woman extremely loved in a world of hateful people who tried to keep her from becoming her best self; a multi-award winning actress of great repute, overjoyed to witness the impact she had on the lives and careers of so many. She was widely criticized for her decision to don natural hair in films. Throughout her career, Ms. Tyson remained true to herself and persistent in her acceptance only of roles portraying positive black images. She deserved to be recognized, spoiled even, on the day she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016, and every day up to her departure from this planet. The deliciousness of an authentic life full of grace and favor was the only dish of revenge she served.

Cicely Tyson was the final side of my triangle of phenomenal woman that also included Maya Angelou and Nancy Wilson. It’s comforting to know they all received their flowers when the beauty of them could still be appreciated by all senses. Please enrich your life with the wisdom Cicely Tyson shared in her interview with Oprah Winfrey, recorded in 2012 but first aired on OWN on 2/06/2021. https://youtu.be/8S5jIQhUUfA
