Learning People in Your Circle

Goddess afternoon Royals. First give praise to the all High.

When I tell you learning things about people in your circle is like learning how to love them all over again. The question is can you learn to love someone once you have found out something that make you not want to know them at all. I am having a hard time trying to look this person in their face and continue to have the same love for them I once had or shall I say I do have. It is not the same for me because once someone have changed my opinion about them it is had to go back to the way things use to be.

I can see if someone else played a part in the changing of my opinion about a person but this isn’t the case. It is the person themself that have changed my mind, heart, and outlook on them. This is hard for me but in the same sense I know that I still have love for them just not the same kind of love. My war status has changed as well as my standing in their corner no matter what.

Judge me for I have judged another, but only by his standards and not by mind. For he is ashamed of himself as well as he should be but there is still love for him in me just not as strong as it once were.

Sending you all love and kisses. #GoddessLove

A Conversation Between Two College Students

A Conversation Between Two College Students

Goddess morning Royals. Giving praise and worship to the all High.

This is a passage from my book, “The Family Bond.” It is a encounter that could take place on the campus grounds between a “light skinned” and “dark skinned” student. This didn’t actually happen and it is a two part scenario so enjoy.

School Scenario: Two Colored Guys – One is Dark-skinned and stays to himself. The other Light-skinned and always with a group of followers not of color.

Dark skinned brother enters a room – “Good morning everyone.”

Light skinned brother – “And who you suppose to be?”

Dark skinned brother – “I’m a brother like you’re a brother, trying to make it in a dream, where everyone seems to want me to fail.  Who you want me to be?”

Light skinned brother – “Who you talking to?”

Dark skinned brother – “Oh, it’s not a debate my brother. It’s just, I want you to understand I come from almost the same places you came from. Just because I speak properly doesn’t mean I wasn’t raised in the hood.  It just means I was raised by people who cared how I pronounce and announce word and how I sound. That’s about it!  My color is the same as yours.  No, it’s not about color and no it’s not a race war, but a little something more!  Something that we should be doing, we should be Uniting instead of Fighting! We should be wanting more for each other.  I’m here just like you are here, to get an Education.  To walk through those doors, just like you walk through those doors.  I’m trying to better myself and make a way for my people, my young one, my children, the generation coming up behind me.  No, I’m not trying to display you, nor diss you. I’m not even trying to displace you.  All I’m trying to say, we are in the same place. That mean that your grades are just as good as mine grades.  Don’t down play me because I am here to fulfill a dream and you’re here to make a scene.  I’m not about that, I’m about another thing. I’m about trying to help the next, you down here trying to break a neck. Oh, My God, I feel my pressure getting high but why?  Because, I don’t feel like I should be the one that’s about to die.  I didn’t do anything to you!  Are you tired of seeing that?  The same thing on TV. Every time you turn around you see blacks killing blacks, I know that sounds whack.  But in reality, that’s what you are threatening me about.  How you going to take my life.  Yet in still you sit up here worried about the next white man and his life.  You are trying to be better than me.  I’m trying to be better than everybody.  Oh, not saying just you.  I’m trying to be better than him, him, and him.  I’m not trying to be that person sitting over here in the corner singing my “should’ve,” “could’ve,” “would’ve”.  I’m not trying to blame “society” for my down falls.  I’m not even trying to blame my parents for not being able to take care of me properly, but someone loved me because I am here.  Someone loved you because you’re here.  I don’t care if you fought the fight and loved yourself enough to get here.  I fought the fight and someone else loved me enough to get me here. All that really matter is that we are here! So, this way we can better ourselves.  Yeah, I know you want to be the tough man on campus.  I’m not even going to debate it.  Just because I am another brother on campus doesn’t mean I am here to be better than you in the fight race, I’m here to be better than everyone in the educational race.  That’s it!  My mindset and your mindset could be on the same page.  Just because my grades are higher than yours doesn’t mean I can’t get you up on that level.  Why I can’t pull my brother up, because that’s my whole means, the whole reason I am here, is to help better my society.  Help better my people. I’m not here to kill nobody, not here to degrade nobody.  I’m only here to help me. That’s what my loved ones sent me here for.  I’m saying you don’t have none, I’m not say no one cares.  That’s not what I am trying to say, so don’t read into this the wrong way.  I need you to understand. I’m just here trying to be a man, the same reason you are here.  I’m not here to show up nobody, nor raise nobody’s hopes pass where they are.  I’m not here to even the score.  Naw, that’s not what I am here for.  I am here to better me, because that’s who I know.  The only person I know. I don’t know you, but Hi! I would like to introduce myself.  I’m your brother from another mother. My name is “Love,” that’s me.  Oh, you don’t want to shake my hand? That’s fine! Still makes you a man.  It didn’t make you less than, just because you didn’t want to do one thing, introduce yourself to me.  See I already know who you are!  I always know who everyone is, everywhere I go. I make it my business to know who’s around me. I need to know what kind of danger my life is in, whether they are of color or not, because no one can be trusted.  You are proving that to me right now.  Our colors are the same.  You match me perfectly.  Don’t even know if you are related to me. All I know is every black is not black and every white is not white, every green is not green and every blue is not blue. Some are off white, eggshell white, cream but not all white, just representative of white. Some is midnight black, blue black, black but once again just a representative of black.  Some are greenish blue, and representative of green and blue.  Some browns are tan, khaki, beige and cocoa.  So, every color isn’t the same color and every heart isn’t the same heart.  Just like every person of color isn’t the same person of color.  So, what I need you to do is understand this, is that I am here to run the race and nothing more.  So, allow me to run the race and make it to where I am going, and I’ll stay out of your lane.  By the way my brother, you have a great day! PEACE

Don’t look at people for who you want them to be but for they really are. Give them time and they will show exactly who they are and if they then you have met who you are looking at, spending time with, and care for. Change people! this world sure can use a lot.

Sending you all love and kisses. #GoddessLove

Sunday Blessings

Goddess morning Royals.

First give all thanks and praise to the all high for giving me life and the ability to continue on in a stable state of mind.

Second, it is almost a new year and time for new chapters in everyone’s life. Don’t take it for granted that you are able to do more this year than last year by doing nothing at all.

Last, learn something new because knowledge is truly power. Also teach someone something new or what you have already learned. Each one teaches one and the world as we know it will be more aware of love, life, laughter and happiness. We all have the ability to learn something we didn’t already know and incorporate it into our lives whether on a daily basis or when needed.

Sending you all love and kisses. #GoddessLove

Prayer Request

Lord I come before you with troubling hearts of worry for love ones; friends of love ones; and so many more. We are in need of your mercy Lord for our love one’s suffer. Only you knows their pain we just know of our love for them because we have become accustom to their presence and their hearts. But you Lord you know so much more, you know what right for them we only know what we aren’t ready to accept and that death. So even though my prayer is for the sick, weary, and shut in, its for those who hearts will ache in their absence. I ask Lord that in you movement because you never move wrong you reach out and touch the hearts of those who are aching from worry for those love ones lost, gone home, bare holding on, and just getting started w/life. I ask that you cover the family and friends in the blood of Jesus and help them to remember you pain as well. Help them to understand you suffered a great lost as well and that their lost is no lesser than your but you will/walk w/them in their time of need. Not all will cross over some will make a recovery because it maybe their storm but not their time. So help weather the pain of all who is of your loving, merciful, wonderful, anointed powers and bless their hearts and spirits. Guide their footsteps, mind, body and soul away from selfish thoughts and ignorance. Place them in a better mind frame and space so they too can understand your direction. In Jesus name I pray, hear my prayer request, Amen!

Oh How Good the Lord has Been to Me!

Psalm 13:1-6 KJV

How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? Consider and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved. But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.

Oh He woke me up this morning and gave me strength to realize I didn’t need to hold on to the past to make the future look bright! He brought me from hurt and pain to comfort and understanding! He touched each and every last child of mine and allowed them to breathe another day, to live another day, to rejoice another day! I couldn’t ask for more, but he saw within Himself to give me more! He made a way when I thought I was at my end and He continue to bless me as we speak because the spirit in me is allowing me to share with you all. Oh you have no idea what He can do and what He has done for me and my family and we are and always will be eternally grateful to Him and for Him. We praise him all day and all night. We are even thankful when we think we should have and He doesn’t allow us to have, because we understand it is not ours or our season to have. Oh thank you Lord God for everything, in Jesus name, Amen!
