Neicy’s In sight
Ok, so today I come home from a very long and tiring day at work to find this beautifully gift wrapped box sitting at my door. I get it inside to find that it was from none other than my Fabulous friend Mz.Priscilla Whicker whom I met here on Fab40 a few years ago. I was in total surprise because I wasn’t expecting anything from anyone, yesssss my birthday is this Friday, but I wasn’t looking for anything from anyone. Well once I got settled I was so excited to open the box to see what was inside and I tell you, she is sooooooooo much like me! She went through a lot of detailing to make my opening experience so special and soooooo much fun. I was so floored at how she took out the time just for me and to specially hand pick each item as she knew what I like. WOW!!!!!
Well as I read the instructions, and yes she had instructions for me to follow to a tee, because each gift was individually wrapped with a special saying, how darling was that! Ok so as I open each one step by step they get better and better, it’s like she has known me personally forever, and get this, we’ve NEVER even met! She has given me a total of 5 different birthday cards, why because they we‘re all so unique she wanted me to have them all. As I got closer to the end of opening my last gift, I got to one gift where the instructions said: “by now you‘re going to need this” and I did I opened it and it was a package of tissues with the wording God Bless You. I was so through the tears just flowed I was so filled with joy I couldn’t hold the tears back.
She is some special lady. She has given me more than anyone could ever give me for someone who has never met me and that is her love, trust, and friendship/sisterhood. This means more to me than you or she could ever know. My hubby is going to be just as surprised because he knows I’m always on Fab40 as well as writing to most of you from time to time. I am so grateful for you all those of you who have connected with me and stayed with me here as well as on Facebook, I love my friends here and I don’t say that just to be saying it I mean it.
I will upload the photos that I took once I get on my laptop, I did this on my iPad so I will post the pics later, Priscilla, I love you my sister/friend
Well I finally made it to the foot specialist, and it was more than my doctor said.....I have some tendon issues to the point of me may having to wear a cast :( who knew? I can’t even fathom the thought of how this came to be, he actually said my foot is caving in lol, never heard that before, but it is serious, so he sent me right over to Wrights-Fillipis to get fitted for a special brace which they had to order for me to try this method first. I tell you if it ain’t one thing it’s another. Well at least now I know. Well once they fit me with the brace correctly we’ll see how it helps.
Today 6/16/12 I met at the park a 17 yr old young man name Garrick Davies, I was drawn to him while I was helping Jadyn ride her bike. Once we got into the park he came over from his house and sat at the picnic table and we began to talk, he told me he had been in Army boot camp and that he and his unit was leaving in September for Afghanistan. He shared with me how troubled his life was not because of his up bringing, but because of the friends and choices in life he chose. He is the baby of 2 other siblings which are grown and out on their own he was the problem child. He shared with me how his parents were ready to kick him out on the street, and then he made a decision to let go and let God. He let his faith in God take over. This young man had me full with joyous tears as he shared with me how he knows there is a real true living God and how good God is, as he also said how can anyone think otherwise? He said one of the many reasons he knows there is a God is because of his changed life and his heart, and how he looked for those people whom he had wrong in the past to ask for forgiveness and make things right with them before God, and before he is deployed in September, again this is a 17 yr old black male. This young man spoke with such wisdom and clarity that I just wanted to shout and dance before the Lord in praise, because it blessed my spirit to be in his company for the mere 30 minutes that we chatted. It flet like I knew him for a life time. I guess it was the God in us both that made me feel that way.
I encouraged him to keep God 1st and foremost in his life and to keep sharing the goodness of the Lord with all those in whom he comes in contact with far and near, I shared my husbands testimony with him about his past, present and future to come how God has brought him from drugs, prison, homelessness, being a ruthless gangster, a womanizer, to a college graduate. He was in awe, but knew and stated it was God. Mr. Garrick has truly blessed me to have met him and his parents live in my neighborhood, I promise I will keep him in my prayers knowing he has dedicated his life to Christ as well as to our country to fight for our safety and well being God bless him, his unit and his family.
Shhhhh it’s 6am and I’m up alone except for my praise and worship team members ( the birds ) sitting quietly as my hubby and g-baby are sleeping, thinking about how blessed I am. I truly had a wonderful time w/ my Jadyn at the park yesterday, she is such a delightful kid to be around and is so smart. I thank Jehovah-God on a daily basis for my family and to let me be in good health to enjoy special times like that with my family.
We ran walked, talked laughed acted silly and just sat playing around all day. I have been her prime playmate since birth, and she knows it this is why she is so attached to me. She loves her mommy dearly but asked if she could live with me and her poppa? We have her spoiled, but in a good way, she is not a bad kid at all. Well today she wants to go back to the park, but I doubt that we will, but I will find something else for us to do before going to church tonight. I am also enjoying my little FITBIT pedometer it is truly an amazing little tracking device, it is helping me keep track of my steps, my sleep and my miles with so much more. It’s teaching me to discipline myself with this weight-loss challenge.
If it weren’t for the arthritis I feel I could walk even mor but the pain is so great in my ankle, but I’m still going to try and bear as much as I can. Tonight we who are in a skit for the My Sister’s Heart gathering are suppose to rehearse tonight after service, I hope everyone shows up. Well I’m going to continue to sit here and meditate, pray and enjoy my quiet time will I still have it, have a blessed day!
For as long as I can remember, I have always found myself either giving a listening ear, or giving wise counsel to so many people without even putting any thought in it. As far back as high-school I can remember my friends calling on me for my advice, opinions etc... Even to this very day many still call upon me for sound advice while knowing what they share with me would not be shared with others. As a matter of fact I still have two childhood friends who call upon me on a regular basis for advice on things their dealing with in their relationships.
Well I have been labeled by some as a mother-hen so to speak, because I’m always advising and I show love and compassion with it. Well I have been asking the Lord to move me in a new area of ministry, but I never knew what area to go into, so I stood still, while still attending my current church.
Many of you here know that I am a licensed Evangelist and have ministered in the pulpit as well as in prisons. But I felt God had something else for me to do. So I pondered over what and prayed about the direction I should go unto the Lord.
Well I felt led of the Holy Spirit to text my pastors letting them know I wanted to get busy within the ministry, but didn’t know where to serve, but was praying about it. Well the head pastor text me back saying that we needed to chat and that he’d call me, so today he and I spoke on the matter now without me even sharing my thoughts about counseling, he said the Lord told him that I need to be the one ministering and counseling the young single mothers who are struggling in the church with life and their children. I was so blew back because I knew this was God. My prayer was answered and it came through the pastor as conformation as to what I already knew.
So he and I will chat again Wednesday night after bible study, this is so ordained of God. Just the other day in service I was lead to pray with a young single mom with 2 kids and as I prayed the Holy Spirit led me and as I prayed she just seeped, became humbled as to what the Spirit was saying, so I know this is what I’m suppose to be doing. But not just because of that situation, I had felt the leading of God in this area for a very, long time but I didn’t heed til now, it’s time.
So I am humbled and I am getting into the birthing position so that God can birth a new thing in me so I can be used and be effective in my calling.
It’s been a minute since my last blog, but so much has been going on and I haven’t had a lot of time to spend here on Fab40, oh how I have missed this place. It is my peace and solitude. Well first let me say all is well just a few bumps and bruises here and there, but hey that’s life you pick yourself up dust yourself off and keep it movin! Well as you all know my hubby graduated a few weeks ago so proud of him and now he is preparing to go back to school for more, what a man lol. My job and all of its drama has quieted down some they fired a lot of the trouble makers and we have several new faces in the place so hopefully the others have learned their lessons and will comply with the rules of the establishment.
However I still am aware that I still have some hater's on board and still have to watch my back, but God is my protection. My grandbaby is doing awesomely well in school and is growing like a weed she will be turning 6 in August, she is so smart and I love her to pieces. Both my daughters are doing well with their business'es and my youngest is currently studying under my oldest for her cosmetology license. I have been working like a hebrew slave, but I shall "NOT" complain I'm grateful for having a job. I'm currently looking for a new home there are soooooo many beautiful homes in the area we're looking and in a great price range, oh the choices and the decisions to be made lol. I am still struggling to lose this weight, but am determined to do it, we have started a weight loss challenge at my job and guess who is on my team?? Pretty much the whole administration team with the exception of a few people oh boy lol, I feel like I'm under a looking glass now lol. No but this is going to be fun we also have to put in walking hours as well as did a weigh in this is going to be a blast the team who loses the most weight and puts in the most walking hours by July 31st is the winner.
I’m not sure of the prize yet but it s all in fun anyhow.
I’m trying to get a grip on some other things in life so much to do with little time to do it, church and being active in it, trying to get back to my book I’m writing and just being a wife, mom, nana and counselor to so many its just not enough time to do anything these days. I also would like to join another ministry at my church but not sure what area to go into right now I’m currently helping them out in the drama team area. I have taken a back seat to ministering in the pulpit since I came to this ministry trying to see how it is going to work out for me. I’ll move in that arena when God speaks to me concerning that.
I truly hope and pray we can find a new home and move as soon as the end of this year or the beginning of the next year I miss having my own space, my own yard, and decorating how I want.
Well gotta move on there is still lots for me to do until next time have a great day!
