The Beginning: Just do it!

In the beginning was this word and it was sent to me from God. Threshold! Webster.com defines it as the door. The place or point of entering or beginning. The level, point or value above which something is true or will take place and below which it is not or will not. What a definition!

Before I received this word I was singing the song "Stand" by Donnie McClurkin and then "Renewed" by Sheri Jones- Moffet. These songs were encouraging to me as I struggled up the street with my two little girls. I wondered when my change was gonna come. Why things had stayed the same for so long and how could the stream of poverty be broken in our communities? That's when I began hear this word.

I began to dance in the street. Something I honesty have never spiritually done. Those that know me know I love to dance but this was different. It was a personal proclamation. I began to leap for joy.

Although my present circumstances and those of the people around me were the same, I felt victory instead of defeat. This was due to the word of God that simply said to me personally-Threshold! I include the World in this testimony of my blogs birth. We the world in all our diversity will break the personal struggles that have held us back individually by the door. What ever your door is or is not will be your decision to make.

Entering or beginning will determine your outcome. You may currently be midway through the breaking point. It's time to make a decision. It's your move. If you're royalty don't allow anyone to take your crown.

What is your threshold right now? What opportunity are you about to give up if you don't complete that next project? What can you do to start a program to solve a problem in your community? What leap of faith must you take to reach a higher level in your life? I encourage you to be positive and get to a point of value; The place or thing that will give you joy as I had dancing in the street.

This blog is a journey and such is life. We will keep things moving. We will travel together. We will meet new people, share ideas, and marvel at the opportunities that become available; All because we decided to make a move in a positive direction. Be blessed beautiful people of the world! Peace.

Let Us Teach As We March On!

I recently attended a black history celebration in which a woman on the program was singing Lift Every Voice and Sing. This song is the Black National Anthem. As an African American raised in a predominate black church I'd sing it with congregants during service, as an alum of an HBCU (Historically Black College) we'd sing the anthem at special events and as a member of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) which adopted it as the official song, I'm both humbled and proud to stand up in reverence of my ancestry. The lyrics request for a people to give high praise in continued faith and remembrance to past and present legacies of resilience. Be sure to view the words and related links below.
Yet at this event I was the only one standing. It was a teachable moment as I quickly nudged my eldest daughter to stand with me. I could hear someone whisper, ‘should we be standing?’ I didn’t turn around. I figured someone would tell them or they’d ju…

Day On Dreams!

Happy Blessed 2018! I'm elated that new year celebrations are followed by national commemorative events and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. Starting this weekend there will be many opportunities to lend a helping hand in our communities across the United States of America. This is a Day On to Serve! The Corporation for National and Community Service expects to engage nearly 1 million people in thousands of service projects in all 50 states. On this day, federal, state, and local
leaders will join citizens in honoring Dr. King's legacy through service projects addressing pressing
community needs.


In 1994, Congress designated MLK Day as the first and only federal holiday observed as a national day of
service, and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this national
effort. Americans may visit MLKDay.gov to find a service project for MLK Day or a year-round volunteer
opportunity in their own community. If you have not already …

Creation Is Life!

I see this page clear, white, new and I write. I'm creating! I first thought about it. I revisited why I began. I looked at my vision wall. I spoke of who I am and I did it. The rest of the story will be completed as I continue.

It is me. The words could not be written without my ideas, my experiences, my action. This is written revelation. The consistency I've needed has always been in me. So in continuing to encourage this action I do the work. I maintain the flow needed to see these black words fill the page with life through letters. Altogether creating for those after me to be inspired in purpose.

Expression has always been a blessing for me. Verbal shares, written thought, movement and dance. Being still in the garden, watching life in the company of my breath. Walking slowly in admiration for the beauty that grows from a seed. All senses glorifying the experience. I give God thanks for every activity of my limbs.

I close my eyes. I breathe in deep. I feel my heart beat…
