#100PoundsOfExcuses: Introduction



Greetings!

BlogFam, I do not know what has gotten into me. I know that it has been way too long since I have written a series and now I feel deeply compelled to offer this new series, inviting you into my private struggle.  Not too long ago, a person very near and dear to my heart suggested that I allow you all to walk with me on my journey of physical transformation and weight release.  I have to be honest with you.  I did not want to.  I was way too embarrassed to open my mouth to speak about it even though people only needed to open their eyes to see it.

#NewBeginnings...

Greetings!
BlogFam,

Today is a day of new beginnings.

Honestly, I do not know where that came from.  I just woke up and those words were in my Spirit.

Today is a day of new beginnings.  It is not the first of the month and it is not the first day of the week.  Actually, it is the fourth of the month and it is Thursday.

Today is a day of new beginnings.  I am not quite sure what that means yet; however, as I reflect on the happenings in my own life over the last month especially the last few weeks, the last few days for that matter, well, I cannot help but to embrace this stirring in my own Spirit.

#TheSHIFT: DETERMINATION Toward Your Destination

Greetings!
BlogFam, this series is finally coming to a close but feel free to come back to it as often as you would like.  This is our final post in #TheSHIFT Series.  We have walked through: DESIRE, DELIBERATION, DECISION, DOCUMENTATION, and DECLARATION.  Today, we will conclude this series with a word on DETERMINATION.

Determination is defined as "firmness of purpose; resoluteness."  Its synonyms include words or phrases such as: willpower, strength of character, single-mindedness, courage and grit.

#TheSHIFT: DECLARATION - Tell Me About Your Words...

Greetings!
 
BlogFam, 
 
Words are powerful.
 
Words make people smile and cry.
 
Words make people lead and follow.
 
Words make people sit and stand.
 
Words make people love and hate.
 
Words are powerful.
 
People break up and make up because of words.  People meet up and hook up because of words.  People give up and help up because of words.  People rise up and speak up because of words.
 
Words are powerful.
 
Words are so powerful that the Proverbs declares that the words that are spoken by our tongue have the power of life and death, and "those who love it will eat its fruit.

My First Baptism

Greetings!
BlogFam - So much has happened since the last time I posted and I thank you for your patience and your prompts.  I have two more posts in #theSHIFT series and then we will move on.  However, this post is not one of them. LOL!  Today, I want to share with you a reflection on my first baptism.  YES, I said my FIRST baptism.

Let me testify.
YES, I have already been to the water.  I was baptized by my Father and godfather in the pool of Midway Church of Christ (Holiness) U.
