First Comes LOVE, Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes….

It has been a looooooong time!!! As ALWAYS, I hope all is Blessed and FAB with each of you! So much has taken place since my last post. By the title, I am certain you were able to put the puzzle together….God blessed me with the opportunity to experience pregnancy. What a surprise that was. I  My husband and I were definitely not expecting the news that a baby was on the way. Personally, I did not see that until YEARS down the road. That is definitely the price you pay when you have sex. lol

When I found out that I was pregnant, I definitely went through a state of denial and shock. Of course, I quickly had to get over it because there was no turning back. I was definitely going to be someone’s mother! At that very moment, reality set in that life would never be the same.

My pregnancy was a blessing. I could not have asked for a better pregnancy considering that pregnancy will never be free of discomfort. I never experienced morning sickness. During my pregnancy, I experienced sickness in the form of vomiting twice. The first time was after I had lunch that consisted of Spaghetti and a strawberry fanta. During that time, I was at work and had not informed anyone that I was with child. As I think back on that day, I laugh becuase I was praying, while trying to vomit quietly, that no one heard me releasing my lunch! The second time was after my husband and I ate at a Jamaican Restaurant. Man, I was so excited but the food definitely did not agree with me and the baby.

Another interesting experience was being able to eat ANYTHING I wanted. I never craved a certain food nor did smells affect me. In the last trimester, I suffered from pelvic pain. It hurt to walk and lie down. I could not turn over in the bed without my pelvic bones popping. It was so intense that my husband had to help me into the bed most of the time because I could barely lift my legs. :-(     Besides the obvious growing belly, I only dealt with slight discoloration of skin on my neck and lower body.

One thing that I did not live without during my pregnancy was BIO OIL or as my husband calls it, African Oil smh. As soon as I found out that I was with child, I began using it. I did not have one stretch mark! BIO OIL  can be found at your local Walmart or Drug store such as Walgreens. You will NOT regret this purchase!3c590ffd-df2c-499e-80ea-912c32b82871

 

 How was your pregnancy experience? What were your go to products?

All LOVE,

Muah!

What Makes God Smile

Hello Beautiful People!

Each day, we are faced with decisions that either turn us toward God or away from God. Of course, when we make decisions that bring us closer to God, He SMILES! If you were not aware, once upon a time, Noah was the only person who made God Smile. The Bible says, “Noah was a pleasure to the Lord.” (Genesis 6:8). If you look at it, because of Noah, you and I are alive today…Thank you, God and Noah! :-) From his life, we are able to see and understand the five acts of worship that make God Smile.

  1. God Smiles When We Love Him Supremely. The Bible tells us that for his entire life, “Noah consistently followed God’s will and enjoyed a close relationship with  Him.” (Genesis 6:9) This is what God wants most from us; a relationship!
  2. God Smiles When We Trust Him Completely. The second reason Noah pleased God was that he trusted God, even when it didn’t make sense. The Bible says, “By faith, Noah built a ship in the middle of dry land. He was warned about something he couldn’t see, and acted on what he was told…As a result, Noah became intimate with God.” (Hebrews 11:7) When God instructed Noah to build a giant ship that would save him and the animals, there were three problems that could have caused Noah to doubt. First, Noah had never seen rain, because prior to the Flood, God irrigated the earth from the ground up. Second, Noah lived hundreds of miles from the nearest ocean. Even if he could learn to build a ship, how would he get it to water? Third, there was the problem of rounding up all the animals and then caring for them. But Noah didn’t complain or make excuses. He trusted God completely, and that made God smile. Trusting God completely means having faith that he knows what is best for your life. It took Noah 120 years to build the ark. Yes, 120 YEARS. I am certain that he faced many discouraging days. With no sign of rain year after year, he was ruthlessly criticized as a “crazy man who thinks God speaks to him.”
  3. God Smiles When We Obey Him Wholeheartedly. Saving the animals from a worldwide flood required great attention to logistics and details. Everything had to be done just as God prescribed it. God didn’t say, “Build any old boat you’d like, Noah.” He gave very detailed instructions as to the size, shape, and materials of the ark as well as the different numbers of animals to be brought on Board. The Bible tells is Noah’s response: ” So Noah, did everything exactly as God had commanded him.” (Genesis 6:22) Noah obeyed God wholeheartedly. That means doing whatever God asks without reservation or hesitation. We should NOT procrastinate and say, “I’ll pray about it.” You do it without delay. God doesn’t owe you an explanation or reason for everything he asks you to do. Understanding can wait, but obedience can’t. Obedience unlocks understanding.
  4. God Smiles When We Praise and Thank Him Continually. The Bible tells us, “The steps of the godly are directed by the Lord. He delights in every detail their lives.” (Psalm 37:23) EVERY human activity, except sin, can be done for God’s pleasure if you do it with an attitude of praise. God especially enjoys watching you use the talents and abilities He has given you. The Bible says, “He has shaped each person in turn; now he watches everything we do.” (Psalm 33:15) You don’t bring glory to God by hiding your abilities or by trying to be someone else. You only bring him enjoyment by being you. Anytime you reject any part of yourself, you are rejecting God’s wisdom and sovereignty in creating you. God says, “You have no right to to argue with your creator. You are merely a clay pot shaped by a potter. The clay doesn’t ask, ‘Why did you make me this way?'” (Isaiah 45:9) There are no unspiritual abilities, just misued ones. Every act of enjoyment becomes an act of worship when you thank God for it. 

What God looks at is the attitude of your heart: Is pleasing him your deepest desire?
