How Do I Deal With The Struggles of a Long-Distance Friendship

Originally posted on Sweet Honesty:

If you think for one minute that being a long- distance relationship is challenging, being in a long-distance friendship is very challenging, too. And this testimony that I am blogging is all about my first-time experience with an amazing friend, Miss Erika Harrison.

It all started on the seventh of November of this year when I so-happened to discover her on social media, Twitter, and I have added her as one of my followers on her soon-to-be husband’s Twitter fan page. I was greatly pleased when she mentioned the fan page that I’ve administered for a year and I was gracious enough to DM her from time to time to get to know her rather than doing the opposite. Even though I did not have Skype and Instagram, we have kept each other in contact with social medias like Twitter, Youtube, and Facebook, including phone calls and text messaging as…

God Does NOT Want Our Excuses, He Wants Our PROGRESSES

Originally posted on Sweet Honesty:

“Think about what God has done for you vs. What you have done for Him, and see who will come short.” That was the message that stayed on my mind for months and I find it to be a good thing because I need to remind myself on a daily bases when I am on the verge of making any excuses when it comes to doing what I do best to please and glorify God.

To really prove a point what that quote means, whenever I face anything that I think it’s not looking good, or something bad has happened, instead of blaming or questioning God about it, I stop and think for a minute. I mean, I can just hear HIM saying “After everything I have done for you, I did it for a reason because I am NOT the one who does things with an excuse! I didn’t…

QUESTION: Which Will YOU Choose?

You’ve heard this saying many times “Life is a test that I didn’t study for” and to add my meaning to the sentence, “Life is not just full of choices, it’s full of multiple choices.”  But when it comes to us REAL ladies, which will you choose?

It seems to me that the whole world is full of Bathsheebas. What I mean about that is there are too many men out there lusting after women based on their body parts. For example, the ladies that every men always lusting and rapping about are  Beyonce, The Kardashian Sisters, Halle Berry, Nia Long, and so forth. These are the examples of Bathsheebas. It doesn’t matter if these is ladies are beautiful based on the body figures. What does matter is how beautiful they are by they respect themselves. I figured that if you would start paying attention to the sizes of every…

A BEAUTIFUL Poem from God

Originally posted on Sweet Honesty:

My Daughter,
Take a look at yourself in the mirror, and tell me what you see,
You weren’t created in the beauty of the world, you were created in the Beautiful image of ME!
It was I who’ve made everything Beautiful at MY own time,
I’ve given you beauty of a gentle, quiet, which is precious in my sight;
Like my servant, King Solomon said, you are Beautiful and there is no flaw in you,
For you are a virtuous woman that’s more precious than any jewels and that no can compare to you.
Let’s be very clear, Beautiful means so much more than just hair and a pretty face,
It truly means that you’re unique and full my amazing grace;
Everything within you that go much deeper than the softness of your skin,
Are the things that make you Beautiful, both outside and within.
Get real acquainted with…

God-Size & God-Shape

There is more to it than paying attention to certain sizes and shapes. Of course, you have sizes and shapes such as: pint-size, king-size, queen-size, plus-size, pear-shape, hourglass-shape, even heart-shape etc. All that don’t matter but there’s one size and shape that everybody should be paying attention to is the size of God and the shape of God. Yes, that’s what I mean, God-size and God-shape.

To prove a point,
if God himself were small enough for us to understand, then He wouldn’t be big enough for us to worship. God gives us dreams a size too big so that we can grow in them. God has a bigger plan for us than we have for ourselves.That clearly explains how compassionate and great God is! He’s the type that never scold at us for asking too much but He only scold at us when ask Him too little, which is clearly why we all shouldn’t be telling God how big our problems are and start telling our problems how big our God is.

The truth is, sometimes when we get so overwhelmed, we forget how big God is. What’s amazing about God is that He is so big He can cover the whole world with His love, and so small He can curl up inside our hearts. HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD!!!

Everybody ought to know that the size of your waist does not determine how beautiful you are, it is the size of your heart that does. To really make it crystal clear, you have a God-Sized body, God-Sized dreams with a God-Shaped heart and a God-Shaped soul, and that let’s you know that there’s a REAL GOD in you!

Stuffed Corn & Black Bean Quesadillas

Stuffed Corn & Back Bean Quesadillas 1

This is one of those meatless recipes that you would never know (or care) is meatless! These are probably my favorite quesadillas ever, not joking. The combination of the beans and the cheese and the corn… seriously. I have come a long way from eating Taco Bell once every week ! It was just too easy to drive through and get an order of quesadillas and some soft taco supremes, you know?! But honestly, I didn’t know how much better Mexican food could be. So incredibly easy, too. If you want, allow the quesadillas to cool an extra ten minutes, slice into quarters instead, and you have a KICKING game day appetizer!Stuffed Corn & Black Bean Quesadillasadapted from Budget Bytes, serves 88 burrito sized tortillas15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed1 cup frozen corn, do not thaw1/2 red onion1/2 cup flat leaf parsley1 packet taco seasoning2 cups shredded cheddar cheesesour creamsalsashredded lettuceIn small food processor, chop parsley and red onion.
