Ms Crooked Halo











What are you currently feeling pressure to do that you don’t particularly enjoy?

If you know me at all, you know the answer to this one: Work.

I am the self-proclaimed Queen of Lazy.

If I can be bothered to do any self-proclaiming, that is…seems like a lot of work.

And for those of you who don’t know, it takes a lot more work to have a successful blog than simply justing writing the posts.

Finding a design that I could live with took months.

And blogging is just one of my jobs so…

Yeah, I loathe working.

But if I do not work, I do not eat.

So says the Bible or Hinney Penny or…someone please look that up for me…

I’m too lazy to do it myself.

{September 16, 2013}   God works at the DMV

I’m Legal!!!

Woot! Woot!!!

Not that I was driving on the low-low.

Ummmm, no, not me.

Ahem.

But now I’m legal.

After paying off over $500 of court fees.

And completing the $30 VASAP class  (yeah, I don’t even drink or smoke, no less use any other drugs but it was mandatory).

I finally borrowed a car and hitched myself up to the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles to take the written and driving test.

So there I am, quietly reviewing the driver’s manual, when my number is called unexpectedly fast.

Like 10 minutes fast!

Up to the counter I go.

Paperwork check.

Eye check.

Photo taken.

And then she searches the computer…

…and searches the computer…

…and searches the computer.

She then asks me if I had ever had a license in Virginia.

Yes, Virginia is the only place that I have ever held a license.

So back to searching she goes.

I patiently wait while she is searching quietly humming My God is Awesome.

And still she could not find where I am suppose to take the test.

Eventually, she asks me who told me that I was suppose to take a driving test.

“I just assumed,” I reply.

I vaguely remember some rule that if you haven’t held a license for longer than a year, than you have to take a test.

So back to searching she goes.

And back to humming I go.

Finally, she prints out a paper and tells me to initial and sign.

I do and prepare to sit down to study some more when she says the magic words:

“Your license will come in the mail in about 10 days. Have a nice day.”

I be all legal, y’all!

I be all LEGAL!!!

Thank you Department of Motor Vehicles VA!

Although I still get a little fidgety every time I see a cop.

Think I’ll ever shake those nerves?

Not that I was ever driving without a license.

Oh, no, not me…..

{August 14, 2012}   God works wonders in one week

I have a friend who has been struggling from homelessness for over two years.

Not the kind of homeliness that you are probably picturing…

Dirty with a shopping cart sleeping under a bridge.

No, this is the kind of homeliness that practically goes unnoticed in society.

One of a hard working mother who just cannot seem to save up enough to pay a deposit so she moves her and her kids from friend’s to friend’s house.

But on this faithful Sunday, our Pastor calls a prophecy.

He says that he doesn’t know who he is talking to but the person who has been struggling for two years and still has been faithful to God, that person’s season of hardship is over.

On that very Monday, she gets notice from her social worker that they can pay her first month’s rent and deposit.

That very day she calls landlords and finds one just down the street from me who is aware of and takes that type of payment.

By the evening, we have viewed the apartment and she has completed the application.

By that Tuesday evening, he has confirmed her income and approved her for the apartment.

By that Wednesday, social services has written a promissary note and she has keys!!!

For the first time in Years!!

But is God done?

Nope!

On Thursday, the water is on.

But there is a problem of an overdue electric bill.

And do you think that a $600 power bill can stop my God.

NOPE!

Because God put it on the heart of just one of the dozen of customer service workers at dom.com to turn on her power if she can pay just $200 of that bill.

And here’s the kicker…the power was on even before she made the payment.

Yep, on Thursday night, she and her three daughters spent their very first night in the comfort and security of their own home!!

On Saturday, with the help of an Explorer, Expedition, and a pickup truck, her furniture was moved in her new home and out of storage.

A new home in one week.

From one Sunday to the next, you went from homeless to being a tenant in good standing.

You can’t tell me there is no God and that my God ain’t good!!!

Y’all are just gonna have to forgive any grammatical or typographical errors in this post.

Robbery not allowed

I am just so steamed up that my mind is going faster than my fingers can type.

I do not live in the the best neighborhood to begin with.

Yet, I have lived here 10 years ad had nary a bit of trouble.

That is, until this summer.

It started out with my friend’s two daughters being jumped.

And by a group of girls, of only one that lives in the neighborhood.

And eventhough my friend called the police from this girl’s residence, the police have yet to do nothing…nada…bubkiss..

And then my teen son walked to see his girlfriend and got mugged!!!

I had never even heard of anyone getting mugged in this neighborhood before.

(And I think that he got mugged twice but just does not want to say anything because I tend to “over-react”.)

To add insult on top of injury, my kids were walking to the Child Life program on Saturday and they said that they were being followed by two grown men.

Oh-Hell-To-The-NO!!!!

I am not a fighter but if I catch anyone bothering my kids, somebody is is getting a butt whopping.

And you can call this premeditated all that you want.

I call it a mother f@cking warning!!!

I stand between my kids and trouble.

It is my God given duty to protect the offspring that the Lord has given me.

Til death…if necessary….

Even though my lease is not up yet, I have already started trolling for a new place to live.

A quiet street in a quiet neighborhood.

I even gave my landlord heads up yesterday so he can either find me something or kiss my derriere good bye.

My kids are good kids.

No trouble.

Excellent grades.

God loving.

My friend’s kids are also good kids.

I think that they are going after the good kids for some reason.

Maybe they are trying to swell the ranks of the neighborhood “gang”.

I don’t know.

This is just mere speculation on my part.

All I know is that John Law needs to step in now before it becomes som

ething more serious and hard to put down.

Funny thing is, my neighborhood is smack dab in the middle of two affluent neighborhoods so why wouldn’t they want to stop the trouble now before it travels across those invisible borders.

Meanwhile, I am doing two things.

I am rebuking and cancelling the plans of the devil on the life of my kids.

And I am preparing to haul butt to a safer neighborhood.

I am being so inspired by my friend.

No, she is not rich.

A happy woman

No, she is not famous.

But today, she has moved from living an impoverished life to a life with more substance.

She has a good source of income.

She found a good man.

She has moved out of public housing.

She is traveling.

She is living a wonderful life, in God and in the world.

In truth, the secret to her success is God.

And remember, the key is not to envy someone else’s good life but, instead, to be inspired by it.
