Hello Sunday

Happy Sunday!

Wish I could report that I’m feeling much better, but I would be lying. What I thought was a cold was actually the flu. Then, right when I thought it was over, I developed bronchitis.

Y’all, this coughing is the worst! At least now I can get two or three sentences out without coughing my lungs out– that’s if I remember to speak in a steady tone. Before I could barely speak. Never in my life have I been so sick. Not even sure how it happened.

On another note, in a few hours I’ll be with my mom! Haven’t seen her in a few weeks due to being sick. She’s finally out of the nursing facility (was discharged the day before Thanksgiving) and living with my sister. Don’t worry, safety precautions in full effect – masks, gloves, sanitizer, Lysol, etc. She’s been asking to see her dog since she was admitted to the hospital in August; PLUS, they discharged her without sending home some of her daily medications. Yeah.. not good. So I’m delivering those. Well, delivering the medication but bringing her dog/my dog back.

Guess I forgot to mention that I now have a dog. Will share that story another time. The last time she was in a car for more than 10 minutes was over seven years ago when my sister drove her cross country from California to Mississippi. Y’all, I pray that I handle her well – feeding, potty time, etc. This new doggie owner thing– because she’s only been with me three weeks (was with my brother)– has not been simple. So yeah, this is going to be quite the adventure!

Life…

Well, let me get ready to leave. It’s about 1.5 hour drive to my sister’s. Please keep me in your prayers.

Love Y’all!♥️

Wednesday Writings

Today’s blog is a single verse from the Bible that seems to be stuck in my head. Thought I’d share it with you. Have a blessed day!♥️ ~ Shaun

Psalm 34:1 (KJV)

I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

Do It Afraid

A few years ago, I shared this quote – “Fear is only temporary. Regret lasts forever.” I’m not sure if regret lasts forever; however, I do know fear is only temporary.

Your vision is clear. Don’t allow fear to stop you from fulfilling your purpose. Do it afraid!♥️ ~ Shaun

Wednesday Writings

Can’t believe it’s Wednesday, already! It’s a little after midnight where I am so I have decided to go ahead and write.

Life is full of highs and lows. Seems like as soon as you experience a high you need to start preparing for the low– the unexpected low.

Yesterday was a pretty sad day. I woke up to the news that one of the artists from the rap group Migos had passed. I’m not sure if it was my daughter waking me up in tears that made the news seem more devastating or the fact that he was so young. All I kept thinking was that could’ve been my son. He was only 28.

Then, I visited my mom in the hospital and she wasn’t having a good day. She thought she was going to be discharged only to find out everything had been delayed. She cried and screamed and nothing I said or did consoled her. It was a lot. Yeah.. yesterday was a lot.

I’m going to attempt to go back to sleep now. I pray that the rest of the day goes well. I pray that those who are hurting mentally, emotionally and physically experience peace and comfort. Lord, please help us. Amen

Hello Sunday

This morning I’m singing I Won’t Complain for myself and my parents. We’re all aging and life doesn’t look like it used to. However, God’s been so good to us, and all of our good days have definitely outweighed our bad. I know God’s got us! Amen

I Won’t Complain by Rev. Paul Jones
Lyrics by The Mezzo Agency, LLC

… I’ve had some good days
I’ve had some hills to climb
I’ve had some weary days
And some sleepless nights

… But when I look around
And I think things over
All of my good days
Outweigh my bad days
I won’t complain

… Sometimes the clouds are low
I can hardly see the road
I ask a question, Lord
Lord, why so much pain?
But he knows what’s best for me
Although my weary eyes
They can’t see
So I’ll just say thank you Lord
I won’t complain

… The Lord
Has been so good to me
He’s been good to me
More than this old world
Or you could ever be
He’s been so good
To me

… He dried all of my tears away
Turned my midnights into day
So I’ll just say thank you Lord
I’ve been lied on
But thank you Lord
I’ve been talked about
But thank you Lord
I’ve been misunderstood
But thank you Lord
You might be sick
Body reeking with pain
But thank you Lord
The bills are due
Don’t know where
The money coming from
But thank you Lord
Thank you Lord
Thank you Lord
I want
I want to thank God
God
God
God
Has been so good to me
He’s been good to me
More than this old world
Or you could ever be
He’s been so good
He’s been so good
He’s been so good
So good
So good
So good
So good
To me
He dried all of my tears away
Turned my midnight into day

Thanks for reading and singing along (smile). I pray you have a blessed week.
