Miracle



Good Morning All!  I hope that everyone had a great weekend :) I did....I took my youngest daughter and my neice and nephew to the zoo since my oldest daughter was at a birthday party.  Then we went prom shopping.  My oldest daughter Tanaesha was invited to the prom with a boy she has known since kindergarten and he was in the first grade....They have had crushes on eachother since then but play the "flirting" game...So it was only fitting that he invited her of all people...His family and mine lived on the same street so we all know and love eachother very much!  His mom, sister (My daughters best friend) went shopping yesterday.  Her God Mother gave her a beautiful dress so we only had to shop for shoes, a shaw and accesories...And his mom paid for it all!  Tanaesha is almost like a daughter to her and doing this made her so excited.  She even offered to get her nails done the day of...I am going to be doing the hair and make up...Not sure if yall know but I did take 3 years of cosmetology but never got my license because after doing two girls hair, the last thing I want to do is hair :) 

Another thing, I started my writing class saturday...This class was God sent...This is EXACTLY what I needed to publish...Its a two month class, but he is going to push us to be the best writers we can become...and he is going to teach us how to make money from writing :)  He is not only a Pulitzer Prize winner, he is a columnist for the Miami Herald...Has been writing for longer than I have been on this earth :)  Therefore I am so grateful to learn from such a talented man...His work is simply amazing...

This poem was inspired by church service sunday and then confirmed on the radio on my way to work.  Right now I NEED a miracle to make it through...So I am going to step out and go get it :)  I posted the two lovely ladies (My lil cousins) because for one they were just in my email this morning but these are two miracle babies....My cousin and her husband were married 5 years and couldnt conceive after trying vigorously...And then she FINALLY got pregnant...Then a year later again :)  So meet Tessa and Terra....



Miracle

Miracles come true with faith and trust
When life leaves you in disgust

Step out and believe He will carry you
But taking that first step is what you have to do

No matter what it is you are in need of
Be assured in His love

Stop being fearful
And step out in your miracle

I too am a miracle baby. My mom had Toxemia and neither her nor me were supposed to make it and that might be why our bond is so strong and why I'm so big on faith. I love that u incorporate ur faith into ur poems. Good Read!

JStar said...

:) Thanks Sakhii

Aww Sheri-Oh so sweet comments...That makes writing all so worth it...

Yes Champ...God oversee's ALL odds and is just AMAZING...Thanks! The poems you have read, are the only ones I have EVER written on faith...The ones posted here were my first....I have only written love poems between a man and a woman...Now I am attempting to write about the greatest love of ALL...Gods...

I like your style of Motherhood. In Africa, Parents dont want to believe children can actually have crushes. It makes it a little difficult to keep tab as these kids tend to keep most of their relationship in secret. Although contemporary African Parents are beginning to learn. The child in the picture is really cute as well. I'm pleased to know you. Be around for a long long time. Cheers!

Thanks LordEmmanuel...I would rather know what my kids are up to than them doing it behind my back...I know all I did that my mother still has no clue about...I just want to be there for them and guide them properly...
