36 days to 40 (5-19)

In 36 days I  will be 40 years old. Wow!!!!I realize that over the years I have cultivated my faith walk with Christ and my spirituality has flourished however my health received what was left over. After working hard and mentally and emotionally addressing the needs of the family, my physical health took a back seat. I realize that things have to change especially it I want to continue to operate at my highest and full potential.  The Doctor told me taking care of everyone else and not myself is not what God wants. She also said that you may not feel it but it can be alot going on in your body. I can say today, I finally hear her. It makes a lot of sense and I must achieve the necessary balance to thrive and be well mind, body, and spirit. I realize that if I don’t take care of this body, I won’t be around and it won’t be a home for my spirit on earth. I have to do better. I am determined to do better. And I will do better.

Gotta Take Care of This Temple

God gave it to me,

Gotta take care of this temple.

God entrusted me

To take care of this temple.

God desires me,

To take care of this temple.

This Temple ,This body

Which is the vessel that serves as a temporary house to the soul and spirit.

I must care for it and keep it holy,

I must be good to it and strive to keep it healthy.

I must nurture it and promote wellness.

God gave it to me,

God has entrusted me,

And God desires me,

To take care of my temple.💖

38 days to 40 5-17

For the past few months everyday,  I have been thinking about turning 40.

It is milestone that I have been anticipating.

It was just another day I was 20. The years go by.

Celebrating and embracing the day  I was born has always been important to me.

It’s not any other day.

It is my birthday.

I share a birthday with my sister,

So all my life it has always been our birthday.

I think I began to do heavy reflecting once the 30th birthday came.

That birthday was a reminder that my 20’s are behind me.

I was curious then of what my 30’s would be like.

Because my 20’s were welcoming motherhood at 21, 23, and 26.

So as I grew with my family, so did my ability to rediscover and define who I was.

And today as I stand in the threshold of my 40th Birthday,

I am ……

A Believer in Christ

A Wife

A Mother

A  Daughter

A Sister

A Counselor

A Friend

And a Dreamer.

I am not only these things nor am I limited to these things.

I am fearfully and wonderfully made. 💖
