Victory is a small baptist church we were blessed to find two years ago. This weekend we attended the annual church picnic and I have to say it was an amazing way to welcome in the feel of spring. The weather was amazing. I am not sure there is any outside force that can still my spirit like the ocean. So much was happening I had a hard time getting my camera from one place to another. Tres and Jordan enjoyed playing chess and checkers with the teens. There was kick ball, volleyball, and dodge ball. Nat and Kobe had a blast playing with all the kids on the beach. We seen a family flying a kite next to our tables. I couldn’t remember the last time I had flew a kite. Why not? What an easy and cheap family activity. I made a mental tally to add that to the next family day. To my delight as the family was leaving they came up and asked if we would like to use the kite since they would not be back out to the beach for awhile. Yeah! We flew the kite, it was so exhilarating running to keep it up in the air. Standing in the sand, watching the sail boats go bye, hearing the laughs of my kids behind me…..priceless.
The History of Us

I wrote a story prompted by my writing group. It's about church, community and racism. Since I published it on my blog I have had so many people reach out with the same shared experience. It's been comforting. Then I found out there is a whole movement of people sharing their stories of leaving church spaces that refuse to respond to racism and injustice. Thank you @thewitnessbcc.

Too close? Just making sure ya'll see these curls. Had my favorite curly girl expert @torrensalicia cut the back of my hair (looser curl pattern) even with the tightly coiled girls at the top. Love the shape that was created. Ima release the desire of length for a fuller style. #curlygirlmethod #natural #innersence
Do not fear. Do not look at the seen but that unseen. Keep your eyes on things above. What is happening in the earth realm is not the end of the story. #kingdomminded #hopeishere #ihearthesoundofvictory #drybonesrattling #elevation
