Sometimes the things we lack and yearn for, keeps us closer to the Father. We’re put in a place where we seek and desperately desire Him above all! I use to think it was so terrible to always be in catch-22 kinda position til I realized that if I never had these God sized voids I’d be prideful and STRAIGHT out of control! ….and we all know if you spin around acting crazy too long you will become dizzy and stumble! You can be humiliated or full of humility! It’s crazy they both start off the same in spelling! 😉
“Though the Lord is great, he cares for the humble, but he keeps his distance from the proud.” Psalms 138:6 NLT
“First pride, then the crash— the bigger the ego, the harder the fall. It’s better to live humbly among the poor than to live it up among the rich and famous.” Proverbs 16:18-19 MSG

TIME: a limited period or interval, as between two successive events: a long time. . . I was reminded today!! Use your time wisely #SpeakTruthGirl Things do come up, of course! You adjust and keep it moving! But for about a year and a half I’ve been consistent with keeping a calendar. Annnnnd it helps!! Now honestly I don’t always stick to it 😂🤣 but pressing task, ideas, and deadlines I try to be on it!!! There is a time for 🗣 EVERYTHANNNNNG!!! And it’s real life limited! Use wisdom and align accordingly! My prayer daily is just that I’m on His time and not my own!! . .
“For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace.” Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 NLT
Becoming a wife does NOT mean you’ve “arrived”! (Just in case the single eyes drifted this way! ….and that’s ok, 🤲🏽 WELCOME! ☺️😍)
It was fairly hard to write this, because just as a rose, there are so many layers/petals to our hearts and often times the inner and deeper parts of the rose petals carry bugs and fungus which isn’t always visible just by looking at it. 😌 There are also so many different kinds of Roses! And honestly can be fairly hard to grow and care for, yet when you do, they are loyal in blooming every year!
My grandfather was a master gardener; everything from cutting grass to starting seedlings! If it was outside, he could grow it. But his favorite was roses! He was a rose Connoisseur! He had rose bushes for days but there was one particular rose bush he gave more attention to…😌🌹
Walk with me…☺️
My grandfather breathed my grandmother! He loved all things Shirley A. McIntyre! So much that for years he stopped painting and doing what he loved to care for her when she fell ill with cancer twice! He nurtured and cared for her literally in sickness and in health! Right before my grandmother died paw paw planted a young rose bush. It had no buds or anything. And honestly Looked like a stick to us! 🤷🏽♀️ Anyways, It eventually bloomed of course and my granny slipped away in 2013….the flower of choice for her home going: yellow Roses! The rose bush he planted: yellow roses! 😍After she passed, he sorta through himself into everything he used to do before she fell sick; especially his art! He painted so many pictures in his last days! 🌹But year after year he cared for that yellow rose bush! He pruned it! Watered it intentionally! Just as he cared for his wife; he cared for this bush! That man brought roses in from that bush up until he literally passed away in 2019. That rose bush didn’t die until he did! (Wheeew! Fellas if you’re reading, I hope 🤞🏽 you caught that! Legacy lives if you choose to live!)
🗣Listen wives! We have to be verbal and articulate our needs. It’s okay to do that! We actually just may have to stop what we’re doing sometimes and remember ourselves! The Proverb 31 woman is a different kinda species! Lol! She is legit super woman! She is YOU! And because you are HER, you are a treasure! And treasures have high value and cared for.
Ask yourself this Valentine’s Day “What do I need?” And be honest! And don’t be afraid to ask the one that’s called to nurture you on this earth. You may just need to be held, an intentional date night, good conversation! Intimacy! You may need to get away from the kids! You jusssst may need 🍆💦! Whatever you need, ASK! 🤷🏽♀️ I know in my early years of marriage (which I’m still there 😂🤣) I would expect my husband to just know! “Why don’t you know what I need!? I’m right here! Look at me!” But the truth of the matter is; he isn’t God. He knows me for SURE! And sometimes I don’t have to tell him! 😍 But it’s ok that There are times that I do! It really is ladies! That doesn’t mean he’s ignoring you! It means you have to communicate! …and find out that he may need something too! 👀🤣😂
You are a rare beauty! And unlike the bloom, we CAN see everything you are….for the most part! But those inner petals that hold the deepest parts of you are hidden and only the gardener (your husband Bae) can have access to those intimate places and spaces, but you HAVE to be open just as roses! He in the ONLY one who is called to cultivate and care for your garden of roses!🌹
Prov 31:10-31 Prov 18:22
🌹Tag a wife that needs a reminder to communicate the hard things!
Single ladies! As Valentine’s Day approaches so many emotions begin to settle in and take root! Feelings and emotions you know for FACT God has healed you from! (Loneliness, rejection, lust, manipulation to name a few!) But because of the holiday they begin to rise and take root and flourish again like ugly weeds! ⏸ But Hol’up tho! It was pressed on my heart to remind you that You’re a ROSE BELOVED! And I need you to remember that you’re still in a BLOOMING season!
state of having the buds opened:
a flourishing, healthy condition; the time or period of greatest beauty, artistry, etc.:
a glow or flush on the cheek indicative of youth and health
In this moment I want you to hold on to your purity; in every sense of that word annnnnnnd I know you’ve heard that word all your single season 🙄 and it’s most likely connected to sex and that’s true; verrrrrry true…..PERIODT! But I also want you to connect it to your heart, spirit, and emotions as well! We talk about physical soul ties but emotional soul ties are JUST as toxic as the weeds that try to choke out the beautiful blooming flowers and roses in the garden; YOU!
Pick the weeds that try to choke out your garden boo; The ones keeping you from blooming! That’s keeps you from a healthy contentment while holding on to the hope (but content) of being a full rose (wife)!! Embrace this time Where God has you budding and in the SONSHINE directly on YOU! (You’re sooo spoiled! Baby Girl! 🥰) It’s giving you a glow that compares to no type of highlight and gives all the healthy nutrients (His Word)! You are legit in a time and period of your greatest beauty, and artistry! Because your vibrant mix of colors are still unknown! 😍 You’re in A time where your only concern should be how can you reflect Him with this gorgeous glow! Enjoy this process!
🌹Tag a single (single: not married; even in dating) lady that needs a reminder of her dopeness!
