I try to convince myself that I am in control.
I try to say to myself that I dont need a break.
But about 3 days deep, I start to feel it.
I LOVE MY KIDS.
But sometimes a girl needs a break!!!
Anyway...thats why I havent written too much lately.
I've been having a mini-meltdown!!!
Pray for me.
In the meantime.....Read the posts below.
I had a better mind set.
Like I said, Pray for me.

I was up last night w/ the kids ...SICK . I turned on the TV and was brought back to real roots real FAST.
BOB MARLEY LIVE was one of the first concerts that I saw of Bob Marley and it touched me to the core.
It touched me at a time in my life when I was so lost and and I was searching for my own soul.
It was 1998...VILANO BEACH...my apartment.
I remember it like it was TODAY...
It was one of theose moments of CLARITY that CHANGED MY LIFE.
It was while watching this show that I realized that my life was in the depths of HELL...
It was while watching this show that I was INFUSED with the love of GOD...
I was while watching this that I realized that my life was soooooo far from where it was supposed to be...
It CHANGED MY LIFE!!!!
Almost from that EXACT MOMENT....I was SAVED.
Rastafari entered my life and I realized that life could be full of LIGHT.
It was in thes moments that I met CHRIST.
It was in these moments that I FINALLY realized that JAH was INSIDE of me...He was the light that was always there, waiting for me to bust thru MY 7 SEALS.
My eyes, ears, nose and mouth ....MY 7 seals..... BUSTED WIDE OPEN.
It was from these moments that my mind worked in a different way than it did before....I was now walking IN THE LIGHT.
I sit here and reflect on my life ...with tears streaming down my face.
Tears of Joy, thankfullness, happiness, love, light......
I thank God for this Journey...
I thank Jah for this LIFE.

Ezekiel is an amazing child...
He is just as beautiful on the inside as he is on the outside.
Tonight we were watching "Planet Earth" and all the sudden he turned to me and said ,
"Mom, I think when I get older I want to make things and have a store and when people can afford them they can buy them..and when they CAN'T...I'll just GIVE it to them."
I said, "Thats great ..You know that God appreciates those things when they come from your heart. What are you going to invent???"
Zeek said, " I have already thought of it. I am going to make a bus, but longer and fatter, so that families with lots of kids can use it."
At this point..I am TOTALLY FALLING in LOVE with this child who is growing up actually in front of me as we spoke.
He then follows me around the house and tells me all kinds of details about OTHER inventions he has ALREADY thought of!!!
Like...headphones that are somehow connected to a TV that shows your thoughts??????
(PLEASE God....Do NOT grant him the wisdom to make THIS....LOL)Sometimes I would be in trouble....
AMAZING....His Brain is EXPANDING as we speak!!!
Then- as usual I try and "sneak" in a lesson or activity...
I said, "Why don't we get you a poster and we'll write "ZEEKS INVENTIONS" on it and over time you can draw all the inventions you think of???"
I, of course, thought this was BRILLIANT and SNEAKY...
His response..."Uh...No, Maybe when I'm older."
Then he kept talking as if I had said NOTHING.
He saw thru my plan...He KNEW he would have to pick up a PENCIL!!!
What an AMAZING child that, GOD-WILLING, I am SURE will grow up to be an AMAZING MAN...

Life is such a JOURNEY...
If you haven seen EVAN ALMIGHTY....WATCH IT!!!
It is so funny.
And a teaching tool..WATCH IT WITH YOUR KIDS.
I NEVER thought that I would EVER let the kids watch a movie like this because of the fact that it takes GOD a little lightly...
But - I have learned to LIGHTEN UP in the past couple of years.
It is a great movie to watch WITH the kids because of the fact that there are alot of "stop-n-talk" moments..alot of explaining for my age kids age group.
Alot of talk about how this is just a movie....It is taken FROM a story in the bible.
NOT REAL...And there is the issue of GOD actually having a FACE.
Anyway..we laughed all the way thru it!!!!!
Makes you THINK about the ARK.....
