    The Chicken? or The Egg?

    Genesis 1:1-26 (New International Version) Genesis 1 The Beginning 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was [a] formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day. 6 And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to…

    National Debt Contributors.

    Now this is a road less traveled when it comes to posting blog entries.   However, I just felt I had to document it today because It is a blatant travesty that 48 yr old adults are much less adept at handling financial matters than some 20 yr olds.   As you may well know, I work for a bank and along came a true test of patience today.    The former (48 yr old) calls in about her account being severely overdrawn due in part to several overdraft fees assessed on the account.   These fees are a result of gross negligence.  The woman started going overdrawn on 7/16/2010 and just never bothered…

    Spiritual Improvement Checklist II

    I guess this is something we should add to the  checklist:   Your First Name of: Meshia   Your name of Meshia has created a practical, responsible, stable nature, and you desire to direct the efforts of others rather than to take order or ask permission. You have a determined, self-reliant, capable nature and resent any interference, although in your desire to help you are inclined to become involved in the lives and decisions of other people. You like to make your own decisions and to be the master of your domain. You feel a limitation in your own expression when it is necessary to reach another through tact and…

    Pigs are flying

    That being the case, ladies what would you do if your man just acted like he didn’t’ give a f#@k?   If you’re talking to him about the status of your  relationship that he admittedly says he cherishes, and he falls asleep how would you handle that?  Do you flip the light switch?  Do you just take a mental hiatus?  Spend time with self?  Get the f%^k-em Dress on and do your Single ladies dance?   What is it that you do to take the edge off?  short of having an affair.  Sleeping with someone else isn’t gone make you feel better.  yes I know your shaking your head and saying “leave…

    This is me. A crazy eclectic opinionated smart mouth chica born in Jamaica, Raised in New York. Living –and so desperately trying to escape the ills of suburban living– in Connecticut. -Meshia   Maybe I’m no longer trying to escape the ills.  Ct is my safety net until the walls come tumbling down.    I’m still here trying to keep this house afloat when I’d much rather keep a room afloat or an apartment afloat.  My bro lives here with his son on a part time basis  and the tenants are moving out. We’re down to 2 now. but I’m just not in the mood to deal with the different personalities.  …

    Principalities and Powers

    I’ve been having this Internal Struggle for the past week or so. I want nothing more than to do what is right and pleasing in the sight of the Lord. But there is a struggle going on within me. I’d been perplexed all week wondering how to solve this issue and here it was the answer was right in front of me. This, in and of itself is proof that God knows our hearts and though sometimes we find ourselves inarticulate (as I have), he truly knows what is heavy on our minds. So this entire week Ephesians chapter 6 has been standing out to me. In my daily sojourn…

    What should I do differently?

    Every day lately, I’ve been wondering if I’m doing what’s right in the sight of the Lord. Sometimes he reveals to me a sign that I’m on the right path. On other occasions, it’s like i’m totally clueless. For me I guess what i’m looking to regain is that childlike faith I used to have. I mean I believe that God will answer my prayers don’t get me wrong. But I guess I tend to rush him. We all know that’s not right because he works in his own timing and though we might think he’s supposed to answer us immediately, his timing is usually perfect. I remember now that…

    Bridle my tongue let my words edify, let the words of my mouth be acceptable in Thy sight, take charge of my thoughts both day and night; order my steps in Your word, please order my steps in Your word.

    Make a Joyful Noise

    Here i was behind the steering wheel not realizing that I’d just experienced a tornado.    I decided to go to the zoo today and then to Borders in Milford to pick up a book. As I left the Beardsley Zoo I noticed the sky getting dark.  I assumed it was just a typical thunderstorm. A lil thunder,a lil lightening here n there. But when I got to exit 32 on I-95 going south, the scenery changed.  I tried to take the local routes because there was an accident and delay for abut 4 miles up to exit 27.   It took me an hour to get to work when it normally…

    My Daily Bread We tend to search for our happiness and comfort in everything but the Lord. Some resort to Alcohol. Some to Drugs. Some to any other man-made kind of addiction or ism they can find. I know because I’m guilty of it myself. What ails society is that we tend to look everywhere else for our cure-all. Everywhere but with God. What I came to find out was that, none of it compares to the feeling of peace and calm God gives you when you lay your burdens on him. It’s one of the most remarkable things about God. How he can immediately give you comfort to ease…
