Hey everyone,

Christmas is upon us and this is the time that those who don't usually give, give.  Many equate giving with material things but you can give a smile, a touch, a hug , a kind word, a listening ear, eye contact when conversing. Spending time with someone speaks volumes.
Let's not put ourselves in debt to buy something that might not be appreciated. Or to impress others when they don't really care.  Also give year around.
Flash that beautiful smile.  Say "Good morning, afternoon, evening or night." Don't look for a reply. Do your part.  Make a different.

I am going to Texas in the morning.  Looking forward to this mini vacation.  Coming back well rested and gearing to start the new year.  God has been so good to my family this year but there is more to come.

My sister in Texas is calling every day to keep me updated with the menu.  I will not leave my running shoes here. I am going to find a track somewhere in Texas.

God showed up!

Hey everyone,

My first book signing for  SMOOTHIES FOR THE SOUL! It took place at New Jerusalem First Missionary Baptist Church in Hollywood, Florida, MK Anderson, Pastor.
I fasted the day before because I needed to be in communication with God.  I needed Him to take over.  I prayed that when I open my mouth, He speaks.  He did.  He showed up and showed out. Many said that they laughed and cried.  To God Be The Glory!!

I am reading MY SONG OF PRAISE!  This is my signature poem.  Worship in poetry!
Being interviewed by my cousin Camille Jones, CEO and Founder of Hands2help!

 Attendees lining up to purchase SMOOTHIES FOR THE SOUL!  Only God!

 Signing with my special pen.  A gift from Minister Robinson, the Youth Minister of New Jerusalem!

Thanks to Pastor Anderson who suggested the title of this book,  SMOOTHIES FOR THE SOUL.  A title I loved and used. To Sylvester Ward Jr, author of Two Versions of the Truth and To Whom it May Concern, for all his help in making this happen and to all my friends and family for their love and support.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me,  I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,"  declares the Lord, "and will  bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all nations and places I have banished you," declared the Lord, "and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile." Jeremiah 29:11-14 NIV
