Jordan has never been a big birthday party kid. This year he had two of his good friends Christian and Jake come over and just hang out in the pool. They were water logged from being there all day and came out for food and drinks only. I took them to get snacks and each one of them came out with 2 Liter sodas, beef jerky and candy. Who can drink a 2 Liter of soda in one setting my themselves? Needless to say they were up all night. I can’t believe he is a high school freshman. He has changed so much over the years from my competitive, strong willed and quiet little boy to deep thinking and surprisingly conservative young man. One of my favorite memories of him is as a toddler he would walk around with a bat that weighed more than he did and two pacifiers in his mouth. He had this funny dance he would do and he would sing” I’m shaking my booty” lol. Luckily he has grown out of that. He is so serious that it is fun to remind myself of that silly little boy. Sometimes I have to remind him now that it is okay to still be silly. By the way, he doesn’t read my blog so no one mention that tid bit I included about his booty song. Happy Birthday to my J Mann.
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
