Wednesday Writings

Y’all, I had some kind of day yesterday. I’m not going to go into details, but it ended with me verbally declaring over and over, “I will not be defeated! I AM a child of God.” By the end of the night, the things I was stressing about had disappeared. Well.. they hadn’t actually disappeared, they were definitely still there; however, I no longer felt overwhelmed.

HA! That was yesterday…

Honestly, I have no idea why I check my emails at 3:00 AM, but I do. Ugh. It’s definitely a habit I need to break. Well, this morning I opened my email and the very first one hit me like a ton of bricks. Whew! Unlike yesterday when I allowed things to get me all worked up, I immediately began declaring – again, verbally – that I AM a child of God and I WILL NOT be defeated!

Y’all, I truly believe words have more power when they’re spoken, when they’re released into the universe. Now.. this goes for negative words too. So, be careful of what you release.

Today, at this very moment, I am declaring —


Listen, if you’re also going through some things, please feel free to make the same declaration, verbally. Change it up however you like. Just make sure you get it out into the universe.

Well, there’s nothing I can do right now about that email so I’m going to publish this blog and go back to sleep. God’s got me.

Y’all have a blessed day.♥️



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!


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
