One of my grandsons often asks me if I still love him whenever he feels he’s disappointed me. My natural tendency in the past was to withdraw from God when I felt I had disappointed Him. Even today, I have to remind myself to go to His Word for the Truth when my attitude stinks. It’s… Continue reading A Fresh Revelation of God’s Love Is Coming
One of my favorite songs by Donnie McClurkin, Stand, begins like this: What do you do when you’ve done all you can And it seems like it’s never enough? And what do you say when your friends turn away And you’re all alone, alone? Tell me, what do you give when you’ve given your all… Continue reading What Does It Mean to Stand?
“Not now, Nicholas! Pop-Pop’s sleeping.” My grandsons, Nicholas and Christian, are early risers. That can be dangerous, considering they enjoy beating on anything from sun-up to sun-down. Before they go to bed, I remind them they cannot come out of their room until it’s light outside. The last time they spent the night Nicholas started… Continue reading Our Time to Celebrate!
1972. What a banner year for my husband and me. Why? That’s the year Willie and I got married.

The worst part about the show was seeing people eat the worst things imaginable–spiders, roaches, crickets, maggots, etc. And all for the chance to win $50,000.00. The truth of the matter is our enemy, the devil, is a master of deception. His tactics are subtle… Continue reading Have You Ever Eaten a Maggot?
As many of you may know, I grew up in a house of twenty-one people–my grandmother, Mamie and Grandfather, Pop Pete; my father and mother and us seven children; my uncle George and Aunt Clara and their four children; my uncle Skip and his wife; and my older cousin Myrtle and her “husband.” Oh, did… Continue reading Have You Made Room for Him?
Who did you think about when you read today’s question? Perhaps a famous person like Bill Gates, or Oprah Winfrey; or a relative, like your mother or father, or spouse or child; or friend or acquaintance or co-worker; or you might be so bold as to say yourself. The possibilities are endless! On a… Continue reading Who Is the Most Generous Person You Know?
On April 4, 1968, I and 222 other students attending Bowie State University (College at the time) were taken into custody and carted off to the Anne Arundel County Detention Center, in Annapolis, MD, for refusing to leave the State Capitol building by 5:00 P.M., closing time. You see, we were protesting the poor… Continue reading I Was Arrested!
Recently I heard about a mirror you could buy which would make you look thinner than your actual size. While a few family members laughed about the possibility, I gave the idea some thought. Having noticed a few extra inches around my waistline recently, I began to think, Hmm…I think I’d like to try that… Continue reading Are You Facing Giants?
