Wine Festival Good Times

I really enjoyed the the Town Point Virginia Wine Festival this past weekend. I had a chance to meet Senator Mark Warner and Mayor Paul Fraim. Speaking of Senator Mark Warner don't forget to exercise your right to vote on Tuesday November 4th. Great wine and good times! Theressa

Two Seniors!! Lawd What am I Going to Do!

Two Seniors!! Lawd What am I Going to Do!

When people would say to me enjoy your children, because they grow up so fast. I would think… shoot…they are not growing up fast enough. But now I get! Boy do I get it! Kristin is a senior at The College of William and Mary and will graduate in May 2015. Collin is a senior at Cape Henry Collegiate and will graduate in June 2015. Where has the time gone… my babies have grown up so fast. Of course I am very proud of them, but sometimes I wish for the days when they were little again. I guess it's just me having a hard time of letting go, but I must for all of us to grow. I send them out praying that God will continue to cover them with His favor and blessings. I also pray that God will grant them the desires of their hearts as they enter the next chapter of their lives. I guess I gotta get a life now huh? As I always tell Kristin and Collin….Don't let anyone define you, you define yourself. And lastly…. I always leave them with this…..Always put God first and He will take you to places that you never dreamed of. #proudmommie #theywillalwaysbemybabies

My Prayer Before Starting Work

My Prayer Before Starting Work
My heavenly Father, as I enter this work place, I bring your presence with me. I speak your peace, your grace, your mercy, and your perfect order into this office. I acknowledge your power over all that will be spoken, thought, decided, and done within these walls. Lord, I thank you for the gifts you have blessed me with. I commit to using them responsibly in your honor. Give me a fresh supply of strength to do my job.  Anoint my projects, ideas, and energy; so that even my smallest accomplishment may bring you glory. Lord when I am confused, guide me. When I am weary, energize me. When I am burned out, infuse me with the light of the Holy Spirit. May the work that I do and the way that I do it bring faith, joy and a smile to all I come in contact with today.   And oh Lord, when I leave this place, give me traveling mercy. Bless my family and home to be in the order as I left it. Lord I thank you for everything you’ve done, everything you’re doing and everything you’re going to do. In the name of Jesus I pray with much love and Thanksgiving…… Amen

I Live By The Four Agreements

The Four Agreements are:

1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.

2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

3. Don’t Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

Happy Birthday To Me!

Now that I have turned 47 years old, this is What I Know for Sure…..

I should have gotten that boob job ten years ago, because if these things get any longer I will be jumping rope with them.

The definition of Poise no longer means to me: to place or hold in a steady position. It now means something I have to wear to protect me when I laugh, sneeze or cough.

I really do not like people!

My th...ighs rub together so hard when I walk; I think that somebody is barbequing! Then I say to myself, Lawd Jezus it’s a Fire!

A glass of wine does the body good, but a bottle of wine does the body great!

Menopause has me sweating like I stole something, crying for no reason, gaining weight like I’m pregnant, mad cause I can’t remember one day from the next, sleeping in an ungodly fashion, waking up every morning with a TWA (Teenie Weenie Afro) and going bald errwhere!! I’m literally a hot mess!

I still love spending time with Kristin and Collin. I’m so thankful for them!

I have learned to forgive myself.

I believe in paying tithe

My favorite hymn is, “Oh How I Love Jesus.” I still cry every time hear it.

My teeth hurt! Moyock here I come!

I miss my mommie and my brother Ronnie

I want to spend the rest of my life helping children

I still believe in love. Now will I ever marry again well…..ain’t nobody got time for dat!

I want to go heaven

I am a loner

I have finally accepted that I will never get back to a size 5. I have embraced my size 10, but why is size 12 starring me in my face!

I want to live in Nice, France

Cussing is a stress reliever

I have one best friend and a possible

Sounds come out of me in the mornings that are not suitable for the human ear or nose

Church is good for my soul

I laugh more than I cry, eat more than I should, talk to myself and answer myself daily, sing off key, cuss every now and then, ask for forgiveness often, pray every day, and love God with all my heart, mind, body and soul

For all of you who know the words of prayer, pray my strength in the Lawd and you shall have my prayers

Midday Moment..."Collin"

 (5) Comments


MIdday Moment January 8, 2013

Theressa’s Midday Moment Tuesday January 8, 2013
This year let your faith lead you. Your faith can either lead you to your destiny or to defeat. It is all in what you believe. God requires us to have the faith the size of a mustard seed and with that faith God says that we can move a mountain. Now, the mustard seed is the smallest of all seeds upon the earth, yet after it is planted it grows up and becomes the greatest of all garden herbs. It puts out large branches so that the birds of the air are able to make nests and dwell in its shade. As small as the mustard seed is, it is one of the greatest herbs and it puts out large branches so that the birds can make their nest and have shade. So if the mustard seed does that to the ground and provides a home for the birds, what do you believe mustard seed faith can do for you?  Let me tell you what it can do for you…It can open doors no man can shut, it can make a way out of no way, it can make you the head and not the tail, it can make you the lender and not the borrower, mustard seed faith can give you peace in the midst of the storm, and it can give you the desires of your heart. Mustard seed faith that is what God requires you to have and with that you can move a mountain. Whatever the mountains are in your life today all is you need is mustard seed faith.  That’s your Midday Moment

Back to Blogging..... Hello Again

Well a lot has changed since the last time I blogged. And here it goes……. Kristin is in her second year of college. Collin is tenth grade and is doing great. My dog Meesha is still spoiled and mean as ever. And me……. Well I didn’t get married. Will I ever marry you may ask? Only the good Lawd knows. Some say, I did not marry because I am too mean, others say I did not marry because I am stuck in my ways, and the majority says, I did not get married, because I needed stronger medication!! I agree with all three!!!

Moving right along to my weight…... The last time we spoke I lost a great deal of weight. But  somehow the weight has made itself back onto my body in the form of fried chicken, pizza, wine, wine, wine, and oh yeah more wine. So I’m back to losing weight again. It’s nothing wrong with losing things, I have lost my mind and it’s been the greatest feeling ever!!! Hell I don’t even want my mind back!!  On a sad note, my brother Ronnie passed suddenly in March and I’m still grieving his death. My heart hurts as I write this. My assurance is… Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. Rest in Peace Ronnie I will see you on the other side. 

Things that are still the same….I still miss and want my mother more than you will ever know. I still love the hymns of the church and sing them daily at home of course. I still don’t like people. I still love hanging out with my children and giving back to my community. I still love God and believe that heaven is my final home. I still don’t like writing blogs but I have too, because my boss made it mandatory. So I’ll talk with you in the next blog and the blog after that, and the blog after that, and so on…. And so on… and so on….. Because I need my job……Blessings
