My dad has bees.🐝Today I went to his house and he showed me all of the honey he had gotten from the hives. He took the lid off of a 5 gallon bucket full of honey and on top of the honey there were 3 little bees, struggling. They were covered in sticky honey and drowning. I asked him if we could help them and he said he was sure they wouldn’t survive. Casualties of honey collection I suppose. I asked him again if we could at least get them out and kill them quickly, after all he was the one who taught me to put a suffering animal (or bug) out of its misery. He finally conceded and scooped the bees out of the bucket. He put them in an empty Chobani yogurt container and put the plastic container outside. Because he had disrupted the hive with the earlier honey 🍯 collection, there were bees flying all over outside. We put the 3 little bees in the container on a bench and left them to their fate. My dad called me out a little while later to show me what was happening. These three little bees were surrounded by all of their sisters (all of the bees are females) and they were cleaning the sticky nearly dead bees, helping them to get all of the honey off of their bodies. We came back a short time later and there was only one little bee left in the container. She was still being tended to by her sisters. When it was time for me to leave we checked one last time and all three of the bees had been cleaned off enough to fly away and the container was empty. Those three little bees lived because they were surrounded by family and friends who would not give up on them, family and friends who refused to let them drown in their own stickiness and resolved to help until the last little bee could be set free. Bee Sisters. Bee Peers. Bee Teammates. ❣️ We could all learn a thing or two from these bees. 🐝 🐝 🐝
I did not write this I should add, but love it. Bee kind always.

Dear Heavenly Father
Thank you oh thank you Lord. For what you have done with your son on Calvary’s cross for me and my readers. For all that believe and have faith and love you and your son. Your sons life on Calvary was not wasted. For so may not understand however I pray they do for I love you truly and know you’re coming right on time. For my Lord and Savior I thank you for setting your blood for me. For truly understanding and coming right on time. For knowing my storm my struggle my hardship my love for you your love for me is everlasting. My words my texts my messages may not totally be perfect however who was who is who will always be your son Jesus who died on Calvary for me and for this world. For he was perfect and sinless and truly blameless. But the world blamed him for all when all he did was come for this world to save us. The Lamb of God who takes away our sins. Yes father I thank you for all I thank you for everything in Jesus name I pray amen￼￼￼￼
Today as I have not written on my blog for a while, I do know that God has a plan for my life. I may not know what that plan is but, I will always trust in him. He tells us in his word, Matthew 6:33-34 ESV but seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Therefore, do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
with just that verse I know He has this. Do I wonder how I will make it? Somedays I do however, I need to remember I first and for most I am his child. He made me in his image. Here is that fact in his word Genesis 1:27,So God created mankind in his own image, in
the image of God he created them man and woman.
Can I share as I am writing this for you? I am writing this for myself. The journey of my life is not easy at all. I am sure as I document this to you. I am sure you are thinking your life is not easy as well.
I do not care what you have in this world if you have any Belief in the Lord. He will share with you. That in this world we will have troubles. But that promise is not all that he shares in telling us that fact. I will not give it my own spin let me share another fact from his word. That will seal that promise r troubles are real in this world, but he has us for sure. You can find this promise in. John, (16:33), it says –“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
As I read that scripter for myself, I do know that the peace I have is because he overcame the world. When he was on earth. I know he has my back. I hope as I do have real struggles and share them with you. You understand that I do know he is going to move mountains for his children. I can only share I am in this world so at times I do know it gets hard for all of us. That to believe in a God that you cannot see maybe hard for some of you. But my faith no matter how I feel is so much stronger. That I have seen so much change in my life in a blink of an eye helps me to keep on believing in my Lord.
As I have written for years my struggles have not gotten easier yet, but he is still bringing me through it all. Some of you may be asking how do you see that?
I as I have always shared, I wake up with thanksgiving. I have a roof over my head, I have food on the table, I need for no one to take care of me except for the Lord. I may want people in my life, so I am not physically alone however, I am not alone for my God has supplied all that I need each day. Even has given me somedays more than others. As I have loss my sight, he has provided me with ways to learn braille and other skills I need when no one else in the correct places has helped me.
You may be asking what that does last statement mean well if you have not listened to my last podcast. I share that my storm is getting larger, but God has a way of providing in many ways. I have been working with the state agency for a while now. I have made it clear the needs I do have; however, they do not know how to do their jobs I feel at this time. Which is incredibly sad for anyone with a disability? As I have shared with them, I need blind skills to help me go back to work they just cannot get there stuff together. Even sharing in some cases I believe they really are not wanting to help for the government does not care to help in the correct ways. I know this is a large statement for me to make however, I have not gotten any real help from them. All they want to do is give excuses. But when God is in control there is no way not to have mountains move with just a little try. I have gotten help from others within the Clubhouse APP> God has provided me to have the things I need by sharing my story on this app. It is not me at all. For I may be sharing my story however, God will get things done his way to show us that he can do anything when you just trust in him. My life is hard, and I see no way out somedays but as I stated in the beginning of this blog today. He will make a way. So, please stay in prayer for your struggles to be over come because he over came the world and gave us peace in doing so.
I do not know what tomorrow will bring but I trust in my Lord to take care of me. I pray you do too.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Today as I am writing this blog to the world. I pray they see that you are true and real. You do not promise anything that you cannot fulfill. It is just in your timing for your promises to come to pass for your children. I am so glad no matter my struggle I know you are going to provide for me. Yes, I at times worry where I should have no worry. Forgive me for that. I just ask for your hand over anyone that is not as strong as myself to see that you will come right on time for us. I know that my crying is real but at least I know I am crying out to you with Jesus on my side. I currently pray anyone that is having tears of fear that you wipe away them and give them the peace they need. I know my journey is real and it will be shared for your glory. Please I ask you to let my message go out to anyone that is hurting and needs to see that you are there for them. That as I hurt you are in the mist of it all. That my words of faith strengthen them with your son.
Thank you for all that you are going to do for me and your children in the days to come. That we need not to worry about tomorrow for you got it. It is in your timing.
In life we have so much to face it is hard for all of us at this time.
As the world is hurting and in so much pain. I know my God is working on my behalf.
I still hurt at times. Yes, I am just like anyone else. I am hurting but God. Knows my pain.
So today I just want to share a prayer with you all.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for letting me be able to be real with you. I know I do not know all that you are working on for me. however, I will trust in you. I will keep my faith in you. I know you know my pain. I know you hear my cries. I know you are going to come right on time. I will trust in you for all. Know matter how this world may give up on me. I know you have a greater plan for my life. I pray that as I am hurting so bad. The world understands that you did not give up on me or them. If someone is hurting today like me. I pray out to you for them. that they understand you really are working in their life. I know you have the best for all of your children. We just need to keep looking for you in every way and at every turn of our lives.
Thank you for just hearing my prayer. Thank you for loving be when no one seems to want to hear my cries.
In Jesus name Amen

While are enjoying all that I have to share with you. Why not bring along your favorite cup of coffee or beverage. How about bringing me one too. You may be asking me. How is this possible? By supporting me. Here are the avenues to do so.
In life we all have dreams of what or how we want our life to be like. We never want to believe that we may have a life changing event happen to us, where our life will get flipped upside down. Maybe even having our dreams crushed. Where it may have us believing that we may never see the dreams we have come to pass. Well Today I would like to share an amazing life changing story about a young man. Who has this type of story. I have the honor to invite him on my show and interview him. I am so thankful to him and God for trusting me with sharing his life story with the world.
Yes, at the age of 19 his world flips upside down. His dreams come to a crashing halt. Let me share with you. My new dear friend and brother in Christ is Luke Seibert. I would love for you to check out my pod cast. For this young mans amazing story. I could not put his story in to words. For it would not be told as it needs to be. Just by me sharing it on my blog. So, I invite you to have a listen to my latest podcast. To hear Luke’s ever changing life’s story. From Luke himself. I have to share as you will hear in this podcast episode. He shares so much with me about his life. That even while I am interviewing him. Luke keeps surprising me with it all. There are so many twists and turns on how he comes through it all.
If you do not have faith in the Lord or are questioning your faith. I want to share I would be surprised if after you hear Luke’s story. You do not say. OK God I cannot, not believe in you. I cannot doubt this is not your mighty hand at work.,
I want you in my life Lord. I have to share Luke even helps me in my vision loss. He is a man that teaches me a few things about being able to get through my blindness. So, as I share this interview with you all. I know God sent him my way just to help me in my loss of vision. Not only to be a story for the world to hear on my podcast.
Thank you for this interview with Luke. I pray that his story reaches far and wide. As you know all you can do for your children. No Matter the storms of life. I know you do not cause anything to really hurt us. Life on earth is hard because we live in a fallen world. I know as Luke dose too. That you are a good God. That as our lives may turn in ways we do not understand. You will always keep us in the palm of your hands. That no weapon will form against us. That as we live our lives. We need to just hold on to your word that you will get us through it all. The struggles may be hard, we truly are blessed. And as I have learned we are not alone. No matter the storms of life. Thank you always for letting me always have great fellowship on my podcast. To share with the world. I pray this interview it blesses others to know you as we do Lord.
In Jesus Name Amen

It is really early. However today I must write to you all. I need to share. The Devil will not have me believe the Lies of this world. Today as I am doing this podcast. Writing my journey story. The storm is getting hard. Yes, the struggles are real, but my God is bigger then the lies of this world. Let me share with you all. I think because I am now doing a podcast and sharing my story out. The storm is starting to really brew. I am watching from a distance. As I am also living out this struggle. As people are getting away with doing me wrong. They maybe climbing the latter. Let me first share I do not wish any hardship on anyone. NO not at all.
It is absolutely amazing how my life flipped upside down. In a million ways since I have come to Texas. Let me share my life has never been easy. No not in one way. As I have started to share with you all on my podcast. If you know me, you will know for sure this truth. For you have seen it play out as I have.
Nevertheless, as I do and will keep on doing for my whole life. I will share GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME! NO MATTER THE STORM!
Yes, that is a truth that I can hole on to for sure.
Let me now share with you. All of a sudden, every item that I spoke about in my podcast like the 72,000.00 debt, the court case for my EEOC claim is showing up. I am glad that it is coming to pass. What I mean by this is, they are and have been playing with my life for too long. By not wanting to speak with me. No, they really still do not want to speak with me. They just want to send me stuff. Saying that I am not correct or that I have no rights in my statements. I was even told by someone yesterday. I am having more issues because I worked there. They feel like I need to be held at a higher standard.
I get no answers to my questions. I cannot believe that one person could cause so much trouble for me. Then get away with it. They really are playing a game with me. It is not ok but as I do say it really is ok. That they are playing games with me. I always have shared during this process. I did not do anything to deserve this. However, if I am wrong in any way, I will do what is right. That God knows the truth of it all. He will always supply all that I need. I do wish people would really learn I am a God GIRL. What I mean is you can be mean to me. You can treat me bad. You can tell lies. However, even if I did do something wrong. I will sit down and make it right. Also, I know I will not let anyone walk over me. That God is going to get the glory for it all. The miss treatment in this let’s call it a debacle. Is so wrong but God will carry me through it all.
I cannot believe how some people get away with there lies. Again, nothing is going to bring me down for long. For I serve a God who I trust fully with my life.
Yes, I do!
I have walked away from so many things. That I knew were wrong. Where people would have said to me. Just stay. You cannot do it (leave that is). Pretty much telling me that I have to conform to the lies of this world. That my job or whatever is not correct is the only way to make it in this world.
Well, as I am sharing NO I will not lay down for the wrongs of this world. I serve a MIGHTY GOD!
If I do what is right and even if I am not right at times. As long as I do my best and not conform to the lies of the world. God will get me through this for sure.
He will do the same for you. Be truthful in all you do. It will work out in the end. I know this for sure. It is just sad that this has happen. I did all that I could. I DID MY JOB. I Gave then all they needed during this time. With the correct documents.
Now let me share I will sit at this table before my enemies. Yes, let me share God will set a table before my enemies. He will fight this battle for sure. If I am wrongly convicted. I will take my judgement and do my time. Whatever time is for me. Hence, let me share with you God will give me the strength to get through it. HE will help me get through it all. He will provide me the outlet to serve the judgement. He will get the glory at the end. I know I am not perfect. I have done all that I can. I have put this on the alter for the Lord. So, as I always share LET’S GO GOD! YOU TAKE THE WHEEL!
I pray if you are going through a storm of life you. Just grab on to Gods word. Do not let anyone tell you he is not there for you. That you just have to conform to the lies of this world.
If I am found guilty of the lies of the world it is ok. For if I can share with you God will show up and help you with it all.
If you feel you have nothing at this time. Let me share you do. It is the only thing you need. Sorry if you are not a believer in Christ. This may be hard for you to hold on to or believe.
BUT I have to share and yes it will be all in capital letters. For I am shouting it out to the world to hear.
MY GOD WILL MAKE A WAY IF HE HAS DONE IT BEFORE HE WILL DO IT AGAIN!
I will say it again.
MY GOD WILL MAKE A WAY IF HE HAS DONE IT BEFORE HE WILL DO IT AGAIN
Today as I am writing this of course I am playing praise and worship music.
As I do so many times. No matter what is going on.
