How to show LOVE daily…

Continued with the “Love Theme” for the month of February, here is another quote, a biblical one.  Taken from the Holman Christian Study Bible.

1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

4 Love is patient, love is kind.

Love does not envy,

is not boastful, is not conceited,

5 does not act improperly,

is not selfish, is not provoked,

and does not keep records of wrongs.

6 Love finds no joy in unrighteousness

but rejoices in the truth.

7 It bears all things, believes all things,

hopes all things, endures all things.

8 Love never ends.

A Father’s Love

John 3:16- “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

LOVE is…

Love is soothing, 

Love is calm,

Love is what you want in the perfect storm.

Love is caring, 

Love is kind,

Love will give you peace of mind.

Love is painful, 

Love is true,

Love will make you do silly things out the blue.

Love is somber, 

Love is sweet,

Love will make the messiest person neat.

Love is caring, 

Love is true,

I am so glad that, I LOVE YOU!

LOVE is what it does!  Don’t just tell me, I want you to show me!

Happy Reading! I hope you enjoy!

Onesided LOVE!

How many times have you been in one of those relationships? You seem to be the one who gives into everything, gives up everything, yet you do not get anything in return. You are the one who makes concessions for the relationship.

You cannot go out with your friends but your partner is out with their friends. You tell them everywhere you are going but they don’t. You have a certain time to be in the house, but your partner doesn’t. You can’t have friends of the opposite sex, but your partner does!

Well instead of this being a one sided love, you are in a CONTROLLING RELATIONSHIP! Didn’t you see the warning signs! Hello!!!! Oh you thought it was cute at first, you’re in this new relationship and they  just want to spend time with you!

NO, THEY WANT TO CONTROL YOU! You are in an emotionally abusive relationship; an unhealthy, unhappy, and volatile relationship!


Compromise is needed in every relationship. There should be give and take. A person does not have to lose themselves in the relationship. Each of you are individuals who have come together to make the team work. Each one of you are an asset to the team!

If you are in any kind of abusive relationship, LEAVE! I know that is easier said than done, because for so many, you have no one to turn to. You may not be financially stable to just pack up and leave. Seek HELP before it gets WORSE!

Open Letter to the Side Chicks

Dear Side Chicks,

I just thought that I would write a letter to you all and ask what are you doing? Some of you are messing up the name. Now, I have to put out more because one of you have decided to ask for a relationship or want something more. Why, would you do that? You have to get in where you fit in.

I already know that many of you are not getting what you deserve, because he has to divide his time between so many of you, but I guess that’s fine with you. Oh, you thought that you were the only one. Nawl, boo? There are about 4 of you with a couple waiting in the wing

.baby momma

Yep, many of you know that we’re still married, not separated, but you don’t care because of the lies that he has told you. Some of you are older, some younger, some married, some in a “situationship”, some single, and etc. Some of you work, some don’t, some maybe in college working towards a degree, some not, and etc. Some I may have seen and been in contact with, some not. Some of y’all are just “friends”, the “friends” that I have never been introduced to. Some of y’all are friends of the family. Some of you are “baby mommas” who didn’t make it to the finish line.


Humph, one of y’all even picked him up from the airport when he took that business trip out of state and he stayed with you for a couple of days before coming home. He even stayed with some of you while we were separated, right under my nose, but it was fine. Trust me, I know. I wasn’t blind to any of it.

We’ve been together for over 20 years, so I know him. I know his habits, especially when they change or differ. Don’t think that I am a fool because I have stayed. Ask yourself this question, “Why hasn’t he left?” If I am so bad, why does he stay? He can leave at anytime and be with you all, but he didn’t want to. Maybe because I know all his secrets and he is afraid to go. Maybe it is because I have his heart. Maybe it is like the old saying goes, “IT’S CHEAPER TO KEEP HER.”


Well, he’s sick now and I need some of y’all to take him to his doctor’s appointments, pick up his medications, take him to his chemo treatments, his dialysis appointments, wipe up his vomit, cook for him, wash his clothes, while I go to work. Now, don’t all volunteer at once, you wanted him when he was well and with me, now that he is sick, I NEED for you all to step up to the plate. You all can do this, I know you can. Aren’t you ready to be #1?

Disclaimer:I searched google for the images.  Woman to Woman came from youtube.



A few months ago, I was talking to a coworker and she was telling me that her and her significant other had been together for a while, 3 years to be exact, and they had discussed getting married but nothing has happened yet.

I asked, “Is he ready?”

She replied, “Yes, he is ready, but I am the one who wants to wait.”

I said, “You have a great guy. Not too many black males are ready to settle down and start a life with the woman he loves.”

She said, “Yeah, he is my best friend. I love him to death and I would do anything for him, it’s just that I want to finish some goals that I have and I know that he will support me cause he has before, but I don’t want to be a burden.”

They both have good paying jobs, they are still young, and have their whole lives ahead of them.

I said, “Girl, if this young man is ready to marry you, then he knows and understands the responsibility that comes with being a husband. Do you realize how many women are waiting for this? Honey, a man knows within a year or two of dating or courtship if you are the one that he wants to spend the rest of his life with. It takes a year to get to know a person. I don’t think that you should rush but if you know that he’s the one that you want to spend the rest of your life with, then go ahead and get some premarital counseling.”

Listen to me offering advice, ha! I offer advice cause I know the mistakes that I have made.

Trust me, when I tell you a man knows if you are the one! It won’t take 7 years,  12 years, or 20 years for him to finally make the decision to be a man and make you his wife.



Happy Reading and Enjoy!  🙂

Courtship Over My Cookies

A Thomas Point of View

I read this post entitled “How Waiting for Sex is Worth the Wait” last month. The post gave suggestions about how long women should before having sex. It wasn’t designed to be definitive but I felt that it was missing one major guideline. Here are some of the suggestions:

It is different for everyone, some guidelines are:

  • When he has said he loves you
  • When you feel 100% sure he will want to still contact you
  • When he asked you to be exclusive
  • When you have met his friends and family
  • When you have been dating him at least 6 weeks

Did you notice that something was missing in the guidelines? How long you should wait before having sex? How about until you are married? Wait for marriage before having sex.

Why? Because we should ladies. So many of us are discounting ourselves with men who don’t recognize our full value…

Random: Grown Men

A Thomas Point of View

Grown men talk more than the text.

Grown men make time to court you.

Grown men pay for dates.

Grown men make plans.

Grown men share pieces of their soul with you willingly.

Grown men see the not so cute parts of you and still tell you that you’re awesome.

Grown men use their words sparingly and with purpose.

Grown men inspire your spirit.

Grown men encourage your growth.

Grown men calm the voices inside your head.

Grown men know when they’ve found a grown woman because they fit like the missing link in a puzzle.

Grown men.
