Just one week ago (tomorrow) Senator Barack Obama became the 45th President of the USA. I will never forget where I was when I heard the news. I was driving home rushing to see the announcement unford before heart raced a marathon that could have earned me a gold medal. However, as I got closer to my home...the world erupted and it had been declared Barack Obama would be our next President. I nearly fell out of the car to get in front of the televison. Though, his victory was told to me over the phone (thanks Melinda)...I had to see if for myself on televison. As I watched the world shout in glory, I cried like a baby and cried some more. As a black woman I cried for all my ancestors. Knowing the history of my people...I could not help but cry and shout Hallelujah!!!!! O HAPPY DAY! I thought about Harriet Tubman when she lead slaves through a secret passage way to freedom. My goodness...I could not be more proud! I feel like Barack will lead this country into a better place. By no means is he GOD; however, he has Joshua like qualities and for that I am thankful.

YES WE CAN & YES WE DID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I close with this great makes me cry and it will forever be a memory in my mind when I think back to November 4, 2008.

America, America
may God thy gold refine
Til all success be nobleness
And every gain devined.

Oh beautiful, for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple maountain majesties
Above the fruited plain

America, sweet America
You know, God done shed his grace on thee
He crowned thy good, in brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.

America, America,
God shed his grace on thee
My God he done shed his grace on thee
And you oughta love him for it,Cause he crowned thy good
with brotherhood,(From sea to shining Sea).

God BLESS!!!!

Biden and Palin's Debate

Many of you have fallen witness to the disturbing interviews of Gov. Sarah "can't answer anything" Palin. With tonight's debate on schedule, it is very important and essential that she answers every question with factorial material. I have to say though I enjoy the jokes about Gov. Palin; I seriously think she needs to prove herself strong, capable and ready for the VP seat. No more time lines. Put up or step aside. It is really that simple. We shall see!

Election 101

Many of you made it a point to watch the debate between Senator Barack Obama and Senator John McCain. Whether or not they answered some of your pressing questions and concerns…that is left up to you to decide. However, if you are anything like yours truly…I’m positive you didn’t get much answered within the hour provided. Heck, I do not believe the moderator asked all his questions due to the long-winded candidate that took over. So, when I came across this election guide in the October 2008 issue of Essence; I leaped for joy! This is a fundamental comparison chart and it gives you a deeper view of where both candidates stand on the issues that matter to you.

It is crucial that you know why you are voting. Yes, it is important that we cast our vote, but let us go beyond that small call of duty and develop knowledge of politics. You will be better for it.

I doubt if you would like to be interviewed and have to tell the interviewee “let me get back to you on that one”.

Keeping you in the know…

BTW...check out the chart @

The problem with some men...they know what to do to get a woman, but they don't know what to do to keep that woman.

So, I ask you intelligent sistas...What's up with some of these men? Before you proceed...I'm rambling a bit; however, i think you will be able to follow. Your two cents are welcome!

They constantly leave me puzzled, how about you? They are great creatures in the beginning. Seemingly, they are kind-hearted, respectful, caring, warm, sensitive, considerate, attentive, have a great sense of humor, and just plain ole nice (in the beginning that is). Would you agree or disagree? Seems to me that most engage in a number of relationships with women (some, at the same time - HA!). You would think they had this relationship and respect thing down to a science. Um...I guess not, because I don't know a brotha yet with the title M.D. following his name. Have you dated such a man? I didn't think so!

Where are these men that were raised by their mommas, you know the kind that were raised to love, respect and treat a woman right? I can't begin to believe that these same influential mommas told them "but BABY only LOVE and TREAT them right until you get what you want from them; then break their hearts". What do you think?

They...note when I use the term "they", of course, I don't mean all men. I'm simply getting tired of typing most men (its a tad bit redundant, if you ask me). Okay, moving right along...what was I saying...Oh yeah, I was saying...they don't act right after a few months. It's like a person at a new job...once they get off probation...they unbutton a few buttons, loosen up the tie, start taking their shoes off under their desk. You can act like you don't' know what I'm talking about, but you know its true. You probably got your shoes off, right now. LOL

No, seriously, aren't you tired of the ones (men) that play with your emotions, feelings and heart. Haven't we prayed to GOD (heck some of us FAST on a regular basis about this "mate" thing/desire) enough about the type of "good man" we would like. BUT, for some reason we keep meeting the knuckle-heads (KHs). Don't get me wrong, you may not currently be dealing with a KHs, but, let's be've had one, two, three, four, five (raise you had if your sure), six that were KHs. They treated you nice, or should I say they were on their best behavior and then after 3 months ...SOUND THE ALARM!!!! They flipped the script on you. Um...And to think that a few of us (SISTAS) have a 3-month sex (Joan from girlfriends...give him some) rule. Little do we know...they have a 3-month rule too...get what I want from her and I'm out! Hold that thought!!!!

OK, back track...IF not you, I have been praying about this "mate". No, I don't pray often but some times I try to remind GOD (as if he needs a constant reminder "Dear GOD, you remember what I prayed to you about 2 months ago, well, it's Summer time, and I prayed that he would show up some time in the Spring, I don't mine waiting, but do you think He'll show up by FALL?" laugh all you want, but I know good and very well that you've done that a few times. If not, just laugh at the thought. THERE AREN'T ANY don't play with people feelings.

Personally, I tell myself all the time "DON"T SETTLE", but somewhere way down low on the opposite side of the truth, righteous and faith...I'm telling myself...SELF, SHUT UP, WE WANT HIM NOW, so no he may not be all of what you been praying for, but GIRLFRIEND he is a man...and a man is what you need, so don't you worry your little self about his hang-ups, because it beats you being alone. But reality kicks in and I know that settling will only harm me in the long run.

But, could it be true...that some of us sub-consciously are going against what we truly know to be the truth? Goodness...I think we (a few of us) need to have a slumber party at a therapist's office because we all can't fit on one little sofa. Honestly, a few of us really need to realize that GOD has something mighty in store for us. The man that is longing to meet you & me (we aren't the only ones waiting)...He will greet us like no other man has ever done before. Confidence will be his cologne of choice and his speech will be impeccable. He'll walk with the grace of a stallion and His eyes will be locked with thankfulness. And, he'll understand...that GOD gave you to him as a gift and the same thing it took to meet you, talk to you, laugh with you, love you and PRAY with you, will be the same things that He will do to keep you, protect you, love you more, cherish you and provide for you. Then, and only then...will you notice the GS stamped on his back; which stands for "GOD's son".

From me to you!
Just a little hope in your day.

You Are Healed Because of the Blood of Jesus

You Are Healed Because of the Blood of Jesus
By Bishop Keith A. Butler

March 27

1 Peter 2:24 - Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. (KJV)

Witnessing in the earth is the blood of Jesus. It is a witness to your healing. Your body may be wracked with pain, but the blood speaks out, YOU ARE HEALED. Now receive your healing today.

Because we are in Christ, we can now live in right standing with God. He is working with us. His power goes in front of us. And the Bible said we are healed. If you were healed then you are healed. And if you are healed then you is healed. I know that is not proper English, but it gets the point across.

You are presently healed. So today, I want you to make this confession of faith: "I am healed from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet, because of the blood. And therefore I say my brain is healed and works perfectly. I am not having Alzheimer's when I get old. My brain will be sharp as it is now in the name of Jesus. I will praise God and be able to do everything I can do now when I am 105.

"My eyes, nose, and mouth are healed. My teeth, tongue and gums are healed in the name of Jesus. My neck is healed. My heart, liver and lungs are healed. My colon, my blood and my skin are healed. My bones and my feet are healed. The Bible said I am healed because of the blood. Therefore, I am healed and I am going to act like it.

"I am going to walk like it, talk like it, and go to bed and get up and praise God. This is another day that I am healed before God Almighty. And when sickness and disease try to come on my body that sickness cannot stand, because the blood was shed. Sickness and disease, get off me in the name of Jesus!"

That is living like you are in righteousness. That is living like the blood works. When a headache comes on, the first thing you do is put the gospel in your mouth and speak it, before reaching for a pain reliever. Healing was given to you as a right because of the blood.

Because of the blood, sickness and disease stops before it gets to you. Your family might have had five generations of cancer but it stops with you. They were not under the blood, but you are. They did not know how to stand, but you do. So take the Word of God and stand. As you stand, you will enter into a life of divine health in Christ Jesus.
