Intercessory. Necessary.


Today I cried. Yes, I cried. "Different" tears.
As a matter of fact they weren't even for me.

I cried for a sister. I cried for a girl.
I cried for a mother with dreams deferred.

I cried for a girl who's trying to understand.
I cried for a mother who's holding her hand.

Did I mention that I cried? Yes Lord, but not for me.
As a matter of fact I cried. I cried for Tennessee.


I must mention that I didn't stop at crying. My tears turned into prayers. Prayers of intercession on behalf of a sister. Intercessory. Necessary. ~Lady Galloway

Time is a Wastin'

Girl, shut down that computer.
Honey, turn off that t.v..
Suga' put down that broom... that mop too.
Your family is calling you.

Your husband needs your support.
Your daughter wants your approval.
Your son needs your encouragement.
Your baby wants your kisses.
Girl, I said your family is calling you.

You wash dem dishes everyday.
You've swept that flo' a million times.
The t.v. is mindless. Humph, that computer too.
Your house maybe spotless, but your family is calling you.

Scripture Reference: Ephesians 5:15 -20; key verse: Ephesians 5:16

Yes, we're to be "keepers of the home" but not at our family's expense.

Spiritual Beauty (try these accessories)

A meek and quiet spirit.

He hath made everything beautiful in his time...

Take a second look... everything isn't always as it seems. Look again and again.
Be content with it. There is beauty in it. It's fitting for it's time. It's just as God intended. Nothing needs to be added or subtracted. It's done well!

Yes, you are...beautiful.

Scripture Reference: Ecclesiastes 3:11

Submission? Who are you talkin' to?

Hey you wives!! Are yawl submitting to your OWN husbands? Not for play-play, but for real? Are you submitting with a "happy heart"? In everything, big or small? Everything?! Do you nag, cry and manipulate to get your way? Tisk, tisk, tisk. Let's submit from the heart and cease to be self seeking. ~Shalom in the home~
