Our 4th of July parties have been getting bigger and bigger with each passing year. I suggested to Mo this year that instead of doing our own party we should rent a room near the beach and watch the cities fireworks while sitting on the sand with the breeze of the ocean keeping us cool. I love how beautiful the water reflects each burst of light. Plus, to be honest I wanted to be lazy and not have to clean or prepare for company. Well, you would have thought I told my husband we should cancel Christmas the way he responded to my request. I think I even caught a tear. LOL. The man LOVES blowing up fireworks. The bigger the box the better. Of course just as I suspected this years party was bigger than the last few years. As I watched the little hands all across my yard filled with sparklers I couldn’t help but feel extremely grateful for the abundance of friends and family I have been blessed to live life with. The memory of the bright eyes and happy face smiles of the neighborhood kidos made clean up duty that night a little easier to deal with. Happy Independence Day America! #fourthofjuly #fireworks #family
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
