Counting it All Joy

It's hard to understand sometimes
Is there a master plan How do I make sense of everything I'm going through
But maybe it's not ours to knowSo we have to learn to let things goAnd simply try to make the most
Of every day and have the faith
That somehow we will find our way

Chorus 1

So count it all joy, all that you're going through
Even when you're feeling down
Count it all joy, each moments a gift to you
So turn it all around
And even in the darkest night
If you look hard enough
There's a trace of sunlight waiting there Yes waiting there for you


Been searching everywhere to find That rainbow in the air
Whenever I came close it just seemed to disappear I had to change my point of view
Start looking at myself I can't believe I never knew Everything that I need
Was right here yes inside of me

Chorus 1

Bridge I don't have to be afraid
From today I have the faith
That somehow I will find my way

Chorus 2 So count it all joy, all that I'm going through Even when I'm feeling down
Count it all joy, each moments a gift to you So turn it all around
And even in the darkest night If I look straight ahead
There's a trace of sunlight waiting there

Yes waiting there for me and you


(Count it All Joy by BeBe & CeCe Winans)


Have a great day!!

"But the miracle of life itself; why people live and die, why they hurt and get hurt is still a mystery. We want to know the reason, the secret, the answer at the back of the book… because the thought of our being all alone down here is just too much for us to bear. But at the end of the day, the fact that we show up for each other, in spite our differences, no matter what we believe, is reason enough to keep believing." (Dr. Bailey- Grey's Anatomy)




I'm thank ful for my friends...

the ones who I only see ever so often but when we hang out it's like there has been no time and space between our visits

the ones that I see everyday but each day I find out something new about them

the ones that call me when they haven't heard from me and just want to say hi

the ones that I can call when I see something funny on my way home and they get it...... and even they dont they still let me yap

the ones that laugh even when they dont because the expression on my face as I'm tellin it makes them laugh

the ones that go out of their way to help me when I dont even think I need help

the ones that have seen me laugh and cry all in a span of 15 minutes and still come running each time I need them

the ones that understand my many facial seizures (that's what hun calls my facial expressions lol)

the ones who understand just what I'm thinking when something occurs and I look over at them

the ones that know when it's ok to be hard on me......and when I dont need to hear I told you so

the ones that I share simple and complicated memories with....if we never talk again we'll always have stories....

the ones I've met via blogworld....some of you I talk to pretty darn often others once in a blue moon but best believe if I'm ever in your neck of the woods I will be banging at your front door :)

GUMBO

I just realized how much I love singing along to music LOL....it's taking everything in me not to sing to Tamia's So into you...and I mean I would be gettin into it now if I wasn't at work LOL

I got my new phone..WOOHOOO and I love it. I have to get use to the keyboard cause it's a lil diff from the V that I had but I love that I have the internet right at my fingertips literally and the text messages I send look like IM convo's...GO TREO 755p

Man I had a blast this past weekend. Although we didn't get into the avenue cause the line was too long the guys got to go to H2O while my sis, hun and I went to a bday party so it was all good.

I took my sis to get her nails done for her bday cause she's never had them done. Now my sis tends to be very quiet when it comes to what she wants and what not. So we're in the nail place and I told the lady just give her a manicure...I was getting a fill and a cut down which is $16 and hers would have been $12. The lady is like oh what about d'sign and you know they talk like that with that foreign accent lol and I'm like aight she like on 4 fingers I was like umm no bookie and my sis is just sittin there LOL. I said dont let that chinese or asian lady bully you (I still can't tell the difference lol) so my sis walks out with a french manicure with a design on two fingers (one on each hand) instead of $12 it was $22 LOL...i was like girl you better be glad it's your bday or you would have been short.

We headed to the mall and I got some earring...3 pair for $7 from clairs and you know that's unheard of LOL...I think the only reason they were so cheap was cause 2 of them were on sale and the girl assumed that last pair was too although it had no sticker on it I aint mad i got me some earrings....she gets a hoodie from papaya and we head home so me and hun can get some groceries.

Now me and hun have been doing weird lately...one min it's aight the next it's kinda weird....so I was going home to head to a bday party and he was going to a fight party....somethign was going on with my car so he was gonna drop me off but then he was like I dont know how long I'm gonna be at the fight party...his boy wasn't going so he couldn't ride with him...so we compromised....we both went to the bday party and we were going to leave when the main event came on.....well folks didnt answer their phone when we were trying to come through so we both went home and passed out....great.

I enjoyed my monday off did some laundry, cooked dinner and watched The Wire. I have no clue what the heck is going on with Marlo this season he is straight hood killin folks and what not that help him get him money right. I mean I get tryin to cut out the middle man but dang. I'm not gonna spoil it for folks who dont want the episode early on On Demand.....so you'll just have to wait till Sunday to watch it.

Today is Tuesday and I actually feel rather rested.....so hopefully today will be a good day. The boss that's been on vacation is back and while he was away I along with another attorney cleaned his office...ekkk I hate cleaning other folks stuff but oh well that's how the cookie crumbles when you work for someone else LOL....all I got to say is this wont be goin on for too long...time to move up and move out...great

Thankful for Life

LIFE IS...




Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.



By Mother Teresa

Ordinary Me

I love listening to pandora radio right now it's on the Toni Braxton commercial

I watched Juno, that movie was actually quite good and interesting....so see my tastes cover a wide variety I'm not just into Denzel movies

Hun is good, we're getting better. I guess talking helps more than not talking does...however it's still a lil weird at home sometimes

My sis is coming this weekend along with the rest of the gang..her birthday is monday so she's hanging out up here with me. I will probably make dinner on Fri night and then hang out bowling or something...I wanted to go ice skating I dont think she's ever done that before that would be fun...Hun probably wouldn't go LOL then again he told me to stop assuming...he would hate it but he'd go

I love Grey's last week's episode was THE BOMB and so was ER I'm mad chic was grillin Abby though like she aint' slept with every male that's walked in the hospital except for Frank at the front desk and Pratt and she might do them if she was too drunk to make a decision.

Medium my other favorite show started back up and I must say that I'm happy it's back on...I dont believe in that stuff too much but I love the crime aspect of it more so than the psychic part of it

Law and Order is another favorite and last week was great, this week will be even better

I saw that all the bloggers who work in DC should all meet up for lunch LOL......great on a friday so we can all be late or dont even go back to work...better yet we could do happy hour....email me if your down...great :)

Ok so I have 3 days to go till I get my new Treo and I am tooooooo excited when I say I will be at that store right after 9am I'm serious I'm gonna come to work, check email them walk 2 blocks to get my phone LOL

I got to spend the day on Sat with one of my homies from college who moved back to her home town. It's funny cause whenever she comes in town I have crap to do but something always seems to move out the way or get mysteriously cancelled so I can hang out with her..it was her bday on fri night

Went to a Sigma party for their founders day celebration in MD it was cool mad that I didn't read the email and print out the flyer cause I ended up paying $20..they better be glad I love them lol

Asked Hun for $20 the next day to go to lunch with my homie and he gave me some whole speech......talking about I need a credit card and what not...boo no I dont not right now Im just learning to do better about my money I still got crap to pay off...thanks but I feel him....but sometimes I think he treats me like a damn lil kid...give me the money or leave me alone LOL I can get it from someone else without all that lip LOL

Watched Lonely Hearts on Sun with Bruce Willis and Salma Hayek...it was good. If you haven't heard of the Lonely Heart killers look it up...very interesting. I'm a blockbuster girl in case you can't tell LOL I'm in there if not every weekend every other weekend.

Ready for Friday...enough said

Its been a long time

I shouldn't left you with a tag to read LOL ok ok that sucked but oh well. I'm feeling great cause I'm FINALLY getting a new phone...well not today but next week unless I can convince Hun to buy it this weekend (and that aint happenin) I am getting the new TREO 755p and I ammmm sooooo excited. My V (May she rest in peace) was dropped in my drink on new years eve and she aint' worked right since so I was back to using my LG6100 which has been discontinued and is a flip phone so I hate texting now on top of that one min it's fully charged the next min it's not. So with a lil motor mouth talking the Verizon rep changed my new every two date to today instead of Feb 19th...yea the 19th was not that far away but once you go QWERTY keyboard you dont wanna go back....so yea I'm a lil stoked...I've already been to the Treo website to look at what I can download and all that....it was a tight race between the TREO 755p and the XV6800 both of which are touch screen but the later has a hidden qwerty keyboard and no outside dialing pad which means to dial I would have to each touch the screen
(which by week one would be masked in grease lol or so dirty that I couldnt read it) or slide the screen up..which is aight but I dont know. I think the kicker was the fact that the treo displays text messages in conversation view instead of different texts.....I like that since I do text alot....anywho the post today is a TAG I haven't done one of these in a while so this should be fun.

Lately....

I've been rather MIA, it's not because I wanna be but more so because I just can't bring myself to write about what I'm feeling so today is more of a release and a whoooosaaa if you will for me to get over what I'm feeling...

I'm thankful...

for peace, especially the peace that comes with understanding

for friends, sistafriends and those who check up on me when they sense something in the midst

for love....the joy that comes with it, the tears that wash away doubt and understanding that you can love someone and not be with them

for being able to live in the moments of my life

for enjoying and learning from everything that comes my way

for just being able to smile....sometimes that's all it takes.


LEARN THE GREAT ART OF DOING THE BEST YOU CAN WHERE YOU ARE WITH WHAT YOU HAVE!!!!!

I'm rather blessed in the big sis arena....one in fact works across from the street from me now WOOHOOO (heyyy reesssiiieeee)...she listens and gives it to me staight no chaser, one calls me a baby even when I dont think I'm being one (jussy) and the other laughs, listens and enjoys the feelings of being in love with me (deep) and of course there are others but I talk to these ladies if not every day then at least once a week with the exception of one :)

I recieved this from one of them and decided to share it :) She's a rather smart lady I tell ya


It is the new year. 2008. 8 years into the new millennium. 2007 brought the end to some situations in some folks lives.

Some marriages ended. Some folks graduated. Marriages were began. Births, relationships. Some of us even saw death.As we say good bye to a year, we say hello to a year of infinite possibilities. I do mean infinite.

The opportunities are endless.It is my hope in this new year, that you walk in the bountifulness that God has orchestrated for your life. Your Destiny.Life is indeed what we make it. We can choose to be sad, we can choose to be down.

Or we can decide that what ever comes our way, we are going to walk with grace in the grace that abounds. Holding our heads up high and loving ourselves as God loves us. Not excepting the mediocre but demanding excellence. There are two scriptures that are embedded in my thoughts this year and I must share them with you.

The first is, "Faith without works is dead." James 2:17I know there are promises and things that you know are coming to you. I stand here to tell you that you have to activate your faith by working towards growth and believing actively by working. Saying God is going to do and believing by actions of faith that God is going to do is two different things. You have been praying for weight loss.

Get up and get on the tread mill. We have got to work in this year coming. Put that faith to action.The second Scripture is, Matthew 6:, "But, seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness;and all these things shall be added unto you."Let us not go into this year worrying about a thing. If we earnestly seek God this year concerning things, and then LEAVE THEM THERE, He will do what He said he would. God said, He would never leave us nor forsake us. This is your year.

My hope is that you walk in the prosperity of love, peace, grace, health, and abundance of God. Prosperity is not just about money, but being whole. Whole in God. He wants us to be Whole.This is my hope for you in this new yer. This will be a year of growth and peace for us all. Please know that you are all in my heart and I am praying for you.

I love you and know that you will walk in greatness. You are all destined to be great and prosper.You are all men of valor. You are all women grace and destiny.

Out with the OLD...in with the NEW

New Years was great

I wasn't Hun....we got into it

Am I upset...nope....do I care...nope....I'm content

He's beginning to remind me of someone I dont like and dont talk to anymore hmmm not a good sign

He made some valid points but he still has not apologized

I dont care if you think I am drunk you dont do that

Living is a lesson in itself

Living with someone is a lesson in itself

Just when I think things are ok....BAMN I get blindsided

I'm fine though

New Year..new things...new thoughts


That's all I can say


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
