Growing on Purpose

Hello. So nice to communicate with you. Happy Holidays as well. I am so excited that I am now connecting with the right people, organizations and events to make things happen!

I'm officially a public relations specialist for my worship center. In the past I'd just do what needed to be done because it was necessary and the laborers were few. I did have qualifications though. Now that my area of specialization has been identified I am amazed. Many non-profit org admins wear many hats.

Though I love hats this one is just right for any occasion. While finding this area of efficiency I've also found areas in which I need to improve. - I am very grateful. I've believed that putting God first and good deeds would help my life's purpose as surely it has. I've known for years that writing and public speaking are areas I'd work in some form but it's now happening consistently.

I've even identified the networks and organizations that will help propel my career. I'm so excited to have now become familiar with beliefnet.com. You all know I wish you peace at the end of every blog entry. During this holiday season while looking up peace I discovered the blog of Norris from beliefnet.com and his entry on peace. I immediately shared it on FB and subscribed to their newsletter. It's so impressive. Great information sharing, inspiration and faith based. Hmmm sound familiar?

What I love is that the Co-founder, Steve Waldman is an accomplished Journalist and Entreprenuer. He was once the senior advisor to the ceo of the Corporation of National Service in the 90's! I read this with excitment. Love It! Truely my concentration in school was Journalism and I was a member of the Corporation for National Service in the 90's. Mr. Waldman actually left beliefnet.com in November to become a senior advisor the the chairman of the FCC. He will be serving in strategic planning focusing on Journalism and New Media.

Mr. Waldman is a man to know about at this time in my life. Certainly -l recognize his face from news shows but fully understand his excellent contribution to Journalism, faith and entreprenual implementation. I've said much. Are you growing in your purpose? Has your area of specialization been uncovered? Are you ready willing and able to accept the call? Are you networking in that area? Work to make a difference and you will possibly find your purpose. Be Blessed! 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…
