Never Settle

Have you ever settled because you were too anxious to wait? OR… because you believed that what you were offered was the best you could get? You know– “You better take what you can get.”

Nah! NEVER settle for less than what you desire. Believe me, you’re worth it and more!♥️ ~ 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.

What’s Your Definition of Love?

How do you define love? Is it patience, kindness and understanding?

How do you show it? How do you receive it?

Unfortunately, love isn’t black and white or one size fits all. How one person shows or receives love can be very different from the next.♥️

A few months ago I took the 5 Love Languages quiz– https://5lovelanguages.com. Took it twice and a similar quiz, and the results were the same. My primary love language is Quality Time followed by Words of Affirmation. If you haven’t taken the quiz, you really should. It’s pretty interesting.
