We had a full house over the weekend. Our friends Jennifer and Kwame teach at a Christian School in the Bahamas. They brought 28 students over to the states and we were able to host a group in our home for the weekend. Teens from the Bahamas are exactly the same as the teens I have spent time with here. They giggle and laugh into the middle of the night at sleep overs. The boys rough house around and love to play video games. This particular group however can sing your socks off. They gave a spontaneous performance to the gait personal at 1:00 in the a.m. one night! We had a good time and great conversations while they were here and I look forward to their next visit.
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
