A day to really worship and show the LORD how much you love HIM

A day to accept the LORD’s supper to regenerate the faith and peace that you always carry in your soul

A day to thank the Mother, Father; LORD GOD for all your blessings this past week and for the week ahead

A day to pay tithes to let GOD know he is who provided

A day to thank our ancestors for all that they give

A day to give praise and thanks

A day to learn Sunday School education

A day to listen to gospel music and inspirational music

A day to celebrate the start of a new week

A day to prepare for the next five days

A day to take a long stroll after dinner 

A day to bake cookies, breads, and cakes

A day to walk three miles to get your workout schedule started

A day to get your coils retwisted so the hair can lock

A day to cook a large meal for yourself and/or your family and friends

A day to watch all the children do what you would have usually done

A day to spend time with your mate and make love

A day to soak in the bathtub with candles and incense

A day to tell someone that you love them

A day to know who you are and determine how you are standing

A day to love yourself

A day to finish up any lingering homework that needs completion

A day to study for the upcoming test in Life 101

A day to slow down and meditation on last week’s accomplishments

A day to make your long distance calls

A day to balance your checkbook

A day to go shopping in New York City’s Greenwich Village and Soho

A day to visit the museum

A day to hang out with a friend

A day to travel back home when out of state

A day to go to a jazz club for a glass of Mer-

lot and live entertainment

A day to catch up on pre-recorded soap operas that during the week there is not time to view

A day to catch that long overdue movie

A day to spring forward or fall back in time

A day to set aside for many preparations

A day before a holiday or rather an excuse not to work on Monday…PEACE!


An inspirational reflection 

As the spirits of your yesterday come creeping up behind you, attempting to knock on your shoulder, refrain and know that GOD has been doing a mightily good work in you.  You can handle the temptations by removing yourself from those folk and the sheer faith in yourself through prayer and discipline that you can be around and still say “no, thank you.” Don’t let the past interfere with your today, saints!

  Unfortunately, too many saints do just that — allow their past to dictate and move their lives.  Foremost, do what JESUS would do — forgive!  That there alone, saints, will free your life!  Open up your mind to more positive thoughts about yourself and others, clear up your visibility when you see others and yourself, and allow yourself to not let the spirits of yesterday to continually creep into your life today!  Ouch!   That can hurt and feel quite lonely.  Free your mind of your stuff and what you feel folk are doing to you, as you are your own enemy!  

Read Ephesians 4:31-32 and Philippians 4:6-7.  Make a difference today in your life, saints!   cj
