Things to Pray For--#4

Yep. This is me.
I'm a lazy heffah. REAL LAZY.
Its a problem that trickles into everything; school, workout regime, cooking...
I've been known to lay in bed ALL DAY. Not eat, not do anything productive. Just loaf and sleep.
So, #4 on the list is to be a lil' less lazy. I've noticed that if I keep moving when I'm on task and stay out of my house, I can get stuff done. Gonna hafta parlay that into some kinda plan. Yeah. As soon as I get outta bed...LOL
HEY! Its still 2010! #BabySteps

Ask me (almost) anything

Things to Pray For--#3

Patience: the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on annoyance/anger in a negative way; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. Patience is the level of endurance one's character can take before negativity. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being steadfast. Or which you can wait for things. Antonyms include hastiness and impetuousness.

I hate waiting.
No, really.
I'm quick to curse someone out in my head, and tap my foot impatiently with folks on the road, folks waiting on me in a store or restaurant, or folks just in general taking too long to do something. I also have issa with waiting for the blessings I'm getting....I know. I have the AUDACITY to rush the Big Man Upstairs? Its bad.

So, today, as I'm trying to wait for Christmas Eve to become Christmas, I'm going to asked the Almighty to grant me a bit mo' patience. I know its a virtue that I'm VERY short on. So in the new year, and beyond, I need to get right with that.

Things to Pray For--#2

Hello folks!
I'm back...had to knock out those pesky law school finals. *Wipes forehead* WHEEW! Glad that's over. I'm now 1 semester down, 5 more to go!! *hits a dougie*

That brings me to my #2 thing to pray for in 2011 and beyond...I didn't forget!!!
I know that I would not have made it this far without GOD. I'm not gonna use this blog to try to convert folks, but I don't know how you can't KNOW that there is something greater than you acting in your life. I've gotten 2 degrees, moved to several states, met all types of people...I've never broken a bone, I've never been seriously injured...I can go on and on. And I Neva Woulda Made it Without Him. *cue Marvin Sapp*

Unfortunately, I don't thank GOD enough for what he does in my life. Its funny, I have no problem acknowledging my mother and the impact she has on my life. GOD is my heavenly father and I rarely remember to tell him thank you. SMDH.

2.) Give Him praise. Daily. Hourly. Pray over my food, attend church and pray in the morning and at night.

Anyone else find themselves forgetting say thank you to one that always has your back?

Things to Pray for in the New Year and Beyond--#1

I have a lot of things to be grateful for. I have been able to do what I've always said I wanted to do, and as some of my close friends have reminded me, it was brave to leave my life (and my disposable income) to do what I'm doing.
However, every year I live, I think its good to improve. So, here's my list of things to pray for in 2011 and beyond. These aren't frivolous material things, but rather traits and characteristics I think will help me be a better me in the New Year.

1.) Discipline--I've been fighting my wight as long as I can remember. The only time I've been able to lose weight was when I (A.) had a regime and (B.) didn't have to think about what I was doing. The thing is, I haven't had the discipline to get started and maintain. I'm on Weight Watchers, but I keep falling off the wagon. LOL So I need some divine intervention. I need the Good Lawd to put His hand in this task. I have a feeling it will help with other areas too.

Anyone else have this problem? Any advice on how to get started? Sharing is caring folks...:)
