However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him"--

Let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.-
1 John 3:18

For me and several of my close friends we concurred that this day it was evident that we witnessed an outpouring of God's love. It really was another opportunity to celebrate GOD’S goodness, live out my dreams and meet more book lovers searching out the isles for a their book(s) of choice, possibly a sports magazine, a gift book, an inspirational book, a favorite author or just hoping to stumble upon a new literary discovery. And God would have it that yours truly would be seated near the front door this Saturday afternoon, with a smile of course- urging the prospective customer to come and see what I believed could encourage them on their life’s journey!! I prayed that my devotional would be their great find pf the day! It’s a I can’t contain this new kind of energy/joy that causes me to stand, walk around the tables, hug the customers, laugh out loud, really loud and in celebration announce in a rather loud tone of voice “Yes, I am the author, let me share with you how my book was birthed and the intent behind the title: The Blessedness of Believing A Devotional Journey of Life’s Lessons and God’s Promises.” Surprisingly people indulge me. :-)
Here are some of the customer, well wishers and store Managers that added the devotional to their personal libraries. They have no idea how honored I feel by their support
It makes my heart leap when friends enter the front doors, moments after I arrive at the bookstore to celebrate God's faithfulness through the publication of my devotional and then they proceed to share with others about the life changing messages that are contained in the devotionals.

God has done it again shown His love and consideration for all of us. But also, I do believe that if you look closely it’s evident that I am a good example of how He’ll stretch us and allow us to survive personal storms and live to tell about it and marvel at the outcome. Like the sweet little baby coming through the door happily waving, smiling and running towards me caused me to giggle with sheer joy. She didn’t know me, but I sure was delighted with her enthusiasm to see me. I knew it was a divine confirmation and a beautiful gift from God to be assured that even in the most unlikely places of our lives- the love of God nurtures us, overtakes us, surprises us and blesses us as we embrace the newness of life.

Thank you Lord, for you love awaits us! Have a great day my friends.

Breakthroughs Do Come

May our Lord Jesus Christ and God our Father,
who loved us and in his special favor gave us everlasting comfort and good hope,
comfort your hearts and give you strength in every good thing you do and say.
2TH 2:16,17 (NLT)

So much is happening in our lives. I heard TD Jakes say this morning never in his entire life has he seen such dire economic times. We are all living with this reality of a tough time. The plunging stock market, our tight paychecks and absent retirement plans are resounding indicators that we can’t place our trust in chariots or men. There’s such an economic burden on families that it’s bursting the fabric of an already frayed institution. What is that you ask? Why it’s our precious families? The cost of living is sky rocketing, our kids are faced, no they are bombarded with such demonic messages with perverse undertones in videos, slick advertisements, and dare we not leave out the internet. Oh there’s good to be learned and appreciated in our techno savvy world, but daily we all face the challenge of staying afloat and holding on to vestiges of our humanity, upholding our sanctity for life, reverence for God and yes our sanity in really a very insane world.

I heard someone say: “But God!”

I thank God that Wall Street, nor the negativity that attempts to penetrate our airwaves, our lives and ultimately slips under our door ceils, can monolopolize our Hope.

As I zoomed down the highway I witnessed a stream of sunlight breaking through the gray puffy clouds. I knew that moment was for us. Hold on to your faith and remember that no matter the gray and dreary predictions that’s not the final authority/word. The Son of God JESUS and the SUN/the fruit of the spirit: (faith, joy, peace, love, [victory], [patience]) can penetrate our lives! The Son Of God is our protector; God’s word is our sword and shield.

As for God, his way is perfect. All the Lord's promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. For who is God except the Lord? Who but our God is a solid rock? God arms me with strength; he has made my way safe. He makes me as surefooted as a deer, leading me safely along the mountain heights. Psalm 18:30-33

I’d like to believe that this is another moment to stop and reflect on how faithful and sovereign our Lord and Savior is. There is an everlasting hope, a change agent a rock of Gibraltar which will anchor us, shore us up and beacon us to His green pastures and we can take heart that a breakthrough is eminent! Just you wait and see; the sun does surely shine!!!

Of course you know me by now? I just can't keep a good thing to myself. Instead of recreating the wheel with a new post, I simply inserted the photos that we enjoyed taking of the authors, book lovers, writers and the ODU Mascot ! Why I didn't capture the musicians, well you know? I was caught up in the atmosphere of meeting fellow commorades and did I ever enjoy it!! During the week I'll be sure to introduce you to several outstanding authors that I had the pleasure of meeting. As they say, I'll introduce to some and present to others those that also seemed to be enjoying this wonderful Sunday afternoon at Town Point Park. I am extremely grateful to have been apart of such a superb day!! Music and books what a novel idea! Can't wait till next year!
