A mother is “A Kept Woman”


I Am a ‘Kept ‘ Woman?
You see, there were a few times when I thought I would lose my mind,
But GOD kept me sane. (Isa. 26:3)
There were times when I thought I could go no longer,
But the LORD kept me moving. (Gen 28:15)
At times, I’ve wanted to lash out at those whom I felt had done me wrong,
But the LORD kept my mouth shut.. (Psa. 13)
Sometimes, I think the money just isn’t enough,
But GOD has helped me to keep the lights on, the water on, the car paid, the house paid, etc.., (Matt. 6:25 -34)
When I thought I would fall, HE kept me up.
When I thought I was weak, HE kept me strong! (I Pet. 5:7, Matt. 11:28-30)
I could go on and on and on, but I’m sure you hear me!
I’m blessed to be ‘kept ‘
Do you know a ‘kept ‘ woman?
If so pass it on to her to let her know she is ‘Kept ‘
I’m “Kept” by the Love and Grace of God !!!!


R&B DIvas is Coming to a TV Near You !!!

“R&B Divas” tells the current real-life story of five multi-talented, beautiful R&B stars – Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert, Syleena Johnson, Monifah Carter, and Keke Wyatt.  The docu-series captures the friends as they come together to record a charity album inspired by the late Whitney Houston. Resilient and dynamic, these R&B Divas not only continue to build their own lives and careers, but also pay their good fortune forward, helping others along the way. At the same time, they are all juggling myriad personal challenges, triumphs and responsibilities in addition to making music – including raising families. Through it all, these women have a genuine sisterhood. They love each other, argue with each other, and celebrate each other. One of the few constants in their lives is the strength of their friendship.

Beginning Monday, August 20 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, 9 p.m. CT with eight one-hour episodes, the beautiful and equally talented divas will give a personal glimpse into their private worlds as they lean on each other and offer candid revelations about their efforts to deal with major life challenges and transitions such as divorce, parenting issues, drugs, alcohol, physical abuse and more. They have pasts, they have futures…but most importantly, they have each other. The series is filmed primarily in Atlanta, with additional shooting in Washington, DC, New York and New Orleans. The series is produced for TV One by Thinkfactory Media, Executive Producers are Adam Reed, Adam Freeman, and Leslie Greif. Co-Executive Producers are Phil Thornton, Paul Coy Allen, Faith Evans and Nicci Gilbert. Executive In Charge of production for TV One is Jubba Seyyid.

You are a Survivor…

You can’t allow somebody else’s opinion, somebody else’s perception, somebody else’s understanding, somebody else’s life experiences, or somebody else’s prejudices to allow you to accept the definition that they have of you.!!

Let It Go

Here’s something we thought we would share with you because it’s very motivational in many areas of our lives.

Let it Go

By TD Jakes

There are people who can walk away from you.

And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk away from you: let them walk. I don’t want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. I mean hang up the phone.

When people can walk away from you let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left.

The Bible said that, they came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us. [1 John 2:19]

People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are not joined to you, you can’t make them stay. Let them go.

And it doesn’t mean that they are a bad person it just means that their part in the story is over. And you’ve got to know when people’s part in your story is over so that you don’t keep trying to raise the dead.

You’ve got to know when it’s dead.

You’ve got to know when it’s over. Let me tell you something. I’ve got the gift of good-bye. It’s the tenth spiritual gift, I believe in good-bye. It’s not that I’m hateful, it’s that I’m faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have He’ll give it to me. And if it takes too much sweat I don’t need it. Stop begging people to stay.

Let them go!!

If you are holding on to something that doesn’t belong to you and was never intended for your life, then you need to …..


If you are holding on to past hurts and pains …..


If someone can’t treat you right, love you back, and see your worth…..


If someone has angered you ………


If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge……


If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction……


If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents …..


If you have a bad attitude…….


If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better……


If you’re stuck in the past and God is trying to take you to a new level in Him……


If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship…….


If you keep trying to help someone who won’t even try to help themselves……


If you’re feeling depressed and stressed …….


If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling yourself
and God is saying “take your hands off of it,” then you need to……


Let the past be the past. Forget the former things.
GOD is doing a new thing for you!


Get Right or Get Left .. think about it, and then ….


“The Battle is the Lord’s!”
