Tyler Perry is Expecting A Baby And The World Just Stopped Spinning!

I do not generally blog about celebrities. Frankly, there are enough other people who spend THEIR LIFE worrying about what celebrities do, what they eat, where they sleep, who they sleep with, etc. So I tend to stay out of the celebrity scandal genre. Further more I really DO NOT CARE about what celebrities do and who they do it with. I have a hard enough time maintaining my own life! So all of that said....
I recently read that Actor, Producer, Screen Writer Tyler Perry is expecting a baby. WOOHOO! Well God Bless him!
So let me tell you why this news is upsetting so many people.
Well people are saying that he should practice what he preaches. People are saying that if he is truly a man of God, as he says he should not be having a child out of wedlock. People are saying that his "ministry" talks about not having sex until you are married, and the comments or remarks go on and on. I read these and similar comments from a post of the article which was posted on Yolanda Adams morning show page. You can read the article for yourself HERE
So this is my issue... and mind you a lot of these comments are coming from Christians who are quoting scriptures saying how wrong he is. So my position is this... THAT IS NOT YOUR BUSINESS!
"WE" (and I use we as a general term), we are so caught up in the "celebrity" that we are overlooking the "man". Tyler Perry NEVER said he was a PASTOR, PREACHER, or Man of the cloth. He is NOT a gospel singer, nor does he work in or represent a church. Tyler Perry is an ACTOR, MOVIE PRODUCER, SCREEN WRITER, and maybe even a MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER. So what, he has been seen with preachers, so what he prayed for Bishop Jakes, SO WHAT!
People have put this man up on a pedestal, People have made him out to be something other than a human being, People have decided that because he talks about God in his movies and plays, and because he speaks truths sometimes, than he should be held to the standard of a preacher.
WOW! So have YOU ever prayed for someone? I have. Have YOU ever talked to someone about life and said words that really moved, changed, or impacted them? I have. Does THAT make you a preacher? NO! I am a regular, ordinary, everyday person. I sometimes curse, I sometimes drink wine, I listen to a wide variety of music, I even watch movies that sometimes contain sex, or immoral behaviors. BUT I also have a relationship with God. I pray, I read my bible, and I try to live my life in a way that God would be pleased (But there are times when I fall way short)!

My question is, why do you care so much abut Tyler Perry's private life??? It has absolutely nothing to do with you. Ultimately everything Mr. Perry does is between him and GOD. And when you say, "I'm NOT Judging him, I'm just stating the facts" you really are judging him.
Stop comparing celebrities to preachers, Stop putting people on pedestals and then getting mad if they fall off in your eyes.
GET YOUR OWN LIFE AND LIVE IT!
As for Mr. Perry, Congratulations & welcome to parenthood!


Moving On...

Need To Relax? Take A Moment...

Take the time to relax.
Do something for YOURSELF! Life is all consuming with work, school, church, family, spouse, charity, events, errands, and the list goes on and on. It is easy to get overwhelmed and loose yourself in the ACTIVITIES of your life.
Take a moment for yourself. It may not always be possible to go on vacation, or go out and relax, but there are little things that you can do for yourself.
A couple weekends ago I found myself home alone, no kids, no grand-kids, no paperwork to do, no school paper or homework to do, so it seemed like a good time to pop in one of my favorite movies [League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen], pull out the foot soak tub and sit back and enjoy some "ME TIME"!!




Take time for YOU! Love YOURSELF!

Aveeno Positively Radiant Tone Corrector - Review


A couple of weeks ago I received a product to test. And in all fairness it has taken me this long to do the review because I had to give the product time to work OR not work! so that I could give my true assessment of the product.








So the legal stuff... 
**I received Aveeno Positively Radiant Targeted Tone Corrector complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.  There was no monetary compensation and This review is my thoughts on the product.**


So I received this product a couple of weeks ago and have used it according to the instructions. The instructions are apply to dark spots or uneven tone areas in the AM and PM before your moisturizer. According to the packaging, the products' purpose is to help fade the look of dark spots and uneven tone. so for about 2 weeks twice a day I put this on before I moisturized. so here are my thoughts on #RadiantWithAVEENO 

So my opinions... The Good Stuff!
This product smells absolutely heavenly. The scent is very light and slightly botanical. It reminds you of happy memories that you can just almost remember but then they flutter away! The product contains soy complex as an active ingredient (for those who are into that sort of thing!) and it also contains Vitamin A. It is also SPF 30 for those sunny days!
The product was very light on my face. It was not thick or heavy. Actually the product is just shy of being runny. I have very weird skin sometimes and products do not often work well on my face, but the product did not make me itch or break out or have any adverse affects on my skin. My skin feels very soft after use, not dry or sticky.


But... The Not so Good Stuff!
I really wanted to love this product but sadly I could not. I just simply did not deliver on what it was supposed to do. After 2 weeks of using this product I have seen absolutely NO CHANGE to the tone of my skin. The darker spots are still dark, the uneven tone is still uneven, there has been no change. Well.. I can not say no change because my skin feels super soft LOL! But as a tone corrector this product FAILS! Sorry Aveeno, but this product did not deliver!
So on a scale of 1-10 I have to rate this product a 5 (the 5 is only because of fragrance and feel!).
You can buy this product at Target, Walmart, and other retailers.




BUT IT REALLY SMELLS GOOD!!!!

Blessings,
Regina

Do Christians Love Homosexuals? Does God?

The world is in turmoil and that is to be expected and was foretold. Interesting enough people are really not understanding the nature of the attacks. We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against the powers and principalities, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. We are to HATE the SIN, NOT the SINNER! But Christians seem to have a hard time separating the two. Some Christians seem to be fine with forsaking all homosexuals. Some Christians seem to be of the mind set that says, your sin, your death. What ever happened to Being the Example of Christ in the World? Whatever happened to being CHRIST LIKE? But to be fair many in an "alternative" lifestyle seem to be of the mindset of, You are either for me AND my Lifestyle or you are against me AND my Lifestyle. I have friends and family who live an alternative lifestyle and I love them all dearly and treat them the same as I treat everybody else. But yet by the world's standards I am classified as a "Homophobe"! Seriously?!?! Just because I do not agree with your lifestyle does NOT make me a Homophobe. The definition of a Homophobe is one who HATES or FEARS homosexuals. I neither HATE nor FEAR them. But I understand that the "agenda" is to create division, fear, and hatred, in order to justify or further your cause. I get that. What kills me is that many Christians fall into the trap. And many DO HATE & FEAR homosexuals and it causes them to react irrationally, irresponsibly, and stupidly.
I came across an article last week on Charismanews.com about two lesbians who wanted to buy wedding dresses but the Christian shop owners turned them away. You can read the article for yourself HERE. I remember the whole debate with the Christian bakery (that subsequently ended up going out of business), there was also a christian photographer who refused homosexuals service.
Everyone has their own opinion on the issue and that is fine.

Me, personally speaking, have a pretty unique perspective. If I open a business, I am doing so to operate in such a way that generates revenue. Plainly put I am in business to make money! Your money is not black, white, gay, or straight. It is money and can be used to buy a million bibles, I can donate it to hundreds of Christian causes, once I get the money I can buy what I want and support any causes that I choose to support. So YES, I will gladly take your money and sell you the finest, prettiest, fliest wedding dress in creation! And while in my Christian based shop, that You CHOSE to patronize, you will hear gospel/christian music, you will hear me say "PRAISE GOD" and I will ask you, "Do YOU Know Him"? BUT, I will also treat you with the respect I treat ALL my customers with. Why? Because ALL customers deserve respect for the simple fact that out of any other shop in the world you CHOSE to come in and buy from mine! Thank you! I appreciate your business!
I also understand that there are factions with agendas who will target christian owned businesses to stir the pot so to speak. To get attention and notoriety for their cause. To that I say, you do not have to take the bait, or attend every argument you are invited to! People with a negative agenda can only cause trouble where others feed into their negative nonsense! They are not out there arguing and screaming and fighting with themselves. They need willing participants. Do NOT be a willing participant! The only reason I am posting about this is because I read something in the comments on Facebook about the wedding shop that was so IGNORANT, and so ASININE to me that I had to blog about it. Some super smart, Christian woman said, "As a business owner they should be able to sell to whoever they want to and NOT sell to whoever they do not want to sell to"....
Yes, I will give you a minute to think about that line and digest it fully.....

So.... What she just said is if you do not want to sell to someone for whatever reason you should not have to. she even said they should post a sign say who they will not sell to! Wow, So then if you do not want to sell to Black people, White people, Gay people, Muslim people it should be perfectly okay since it is your store??? So obviously DISCRIMINATION and SEGREGATION mean absolutely NOTHING to you! Or maybe it is not even about RACE, GENDER, RELIGION, or even SEXUAL ORIENTATION, maybe it is about sin. So in your store you will not sell to sinners. Not ADULTERERS, FORNICATORS, LIARS, MURDERERS, THIEVES, etc. Uh, so who WILL you sell to?! Since ALL have sinned and come short of God's glory, you must not be trying to sell to ANYBODY!!

My point with this entire post is this... IF WE ARE CALLED TO BE THE EXAMPLE OF CHRIST'S LOVE IN AND TO THE WORLD HOW CAN YOU DO THAT ONLY INTERACTING WITH OTHERS WHO LOOK, ACT, AND THINK JUST LIKE YOU? 
Anytime someone comes into your place of business they should feel God's love. They should leave your establishment saying, WOW, That Christian lady was so nice to me, is that what God's love is like? As Christians we have to pick our battles OR be smarter in battle. Whatever happened to catching more with honey than with vinegar? Because I'm sure your screams about hate and sin and death are winning so many souls over to Christ... He should be proud...

*But hey this is only MY opinion, You keep right on doing whatever it is that you do!*
Ignorance Makes Me Itch....

Your Life Is NOT Your Own

The death of comedian Robin Williams, made me do some thinking about depression, and suicide. I have no clue and do not presume to understand what goes on in the minds of people other than myself. Sometimes I barely understand what goes on in my own mind. BUT, I do know that mental illness is real and so is depression. We see the commercials on television with the people looking sad, detached from others, and obviously depressed. However, depression is not always that obvious. Someone can go to work, school, or church everyday, perform the way they have been performing and yet still be depressed,
 stressed, anxious, lonely, despondent, and on the edge. When someone smiles at you, there is no way of really knowing what is going on behind that smile.
How often do you ask someone how they are doing and they say I'm Fine...
People can have hundreds or thousands of Facebook friends, Twitter followers, Instagram, or Pinterest friends and still be the loneliest person we know. Suicide is not just something that happens to other ethnicities, suicide can happen to anyone, any race, any gender, any age, and any economic status.
We need to PRAY for one another, LOVE one another, and genuinely be CONCERNED for one another.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of darkness, and against spiritual wickedness. Our enemy is strong and has a full arsenal of weapons with which to steal, kill, and destroy. One of the enemy's greatest tactics is to infiltrate our minds and fill it with wickedness, sickness, and depression. If the enemy can successfully infiltrate your mind, the rest of you will follow. What can get a person to honestly believe that his or her only option is SUICIDE? The ENEMY! The enemy gets in your mind and convinces you that NO ONE CARES, that NO ONE LOVES YOU, that you have NO OPTION but to end it all. That is ALL A LIE from the pit of HELL! There is ALWAYS another option, There is ALWAYS someone you can turn to because ABBA FATHER is ALWAYS here for you!
Jesus gave his life for YOU, It is selfish to TAKE A LIFE THAT IS NOT YOUR OWN! We belong to the FATHER! Our life is HIS, treat it accordingly!


Peace & Love
Regina

Smart Silk Pillow - Review



 Have you heard of SmartSilk Pillows or Covers? I had not until a call went out to test SmartSilk pillows. And since many of you know of my love for all things FREE I jumped on the chance to review these pillows.
First let me tell you ...
I received this complementary pillow from SmartSilk and FuelMyBlog to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review of the product. I was not monetarily compensated for this review. All opinions about the product are my own.

So first the SmartSilk details:
SmartSilk™ Bedding is:

  •   Naturally 100% hypo-allergic - does not trigger feather-related allergic reactions
  •   Rich with the protein sericin - the best choice for those with skin allergies
  •   Inhospitable to dust mites - a great relief to allergy sufferers
  •   Able to wick away excessive moisture - ideal for those affected by night sweats, or mild incontinence
  •   A fire retardant - ideal for crib bedding
  •   Resistant to mold & mildew and is one of the strongest natural fibers - durable, long lasting
  •   Light in weight and will not take on body odor - luxurious, soft, comfortable
  •   A temperature regulator - gives you warmth when it is cold and cools you down when warm
  •   Certified asthma & allergy friendly™ - confidence you can trust  

NOW! My Thoughts!
Okay so first of all this is a pillow filled with silk! It is extra soft and actually feels like the pillows in high-end hotels! The pillow comes in three sizes, Standard, Queen, and King.  It is a good choice if you have allergies or asthma! I like and dislike this pillow. I wanted to LOVE it but I did not! For me this pillow is TOO SOFT! I need a little bit of firmness under my head. This pillow molds to the shape of your head and seems to encase the head! While sleeping on my back the sides of the pillow actually come up on the sides and I almost felt like I was smothering. Maybe my head is too big and too heavy, but what ever the reason I did not like it! Maybe in the winter this will add extra warmth by the way you sink into it. On the plus side though the pillow actually had some noise cancelling properties! Not sure if that was intentional or just a by product but with your head buried in this pillow sounds are muffled!
So since I did not like the feel under my head I decided to switch positions! I have bad knees and sometimes when I sleep on my side my knees stiffen up and hurt.  So I decided to see what this pillow could do for my knees. I placed the pillow between my knees and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the pillow for my knees! I put the pillow between my knees and the softness cradled the knees perfectly. The pillow between the knees also helped with my back alignment! I woke up with NO knee pain and NO back pain! I also tried the pillow out under my knees while sleeping on my back... FABULOUS! I know that pregnant women sometimes have back and knee issues, I think this would be the perfect gift for pregnant women!
So I would say on a scale of 1-10, I give these SmartSilk Pillows a solid 8!

Happy Sleeping!

Everyday Uplifting You - Book Review

Title – EveryDay Uplifting You: Daily Encouragement for Your Soul 365 Days of Any Year 
Author - Valderine Newton-Knowles
Publisher – BookBaby
Date of publication – May 30, 2014
Number of pages – 62

*CWA Review Crew and the author Valderine Newton-Knowles have provided me with a complimentary copy of “EveryDay Uplifting You” to read in order to write my review. The opinions expressed are truthful, mine, and uncompensated.*

About The Author: Val has a  masters in theology and is currently a pastor at Jesus Christ Centered Ministries International in Nassau, Bahamas ( JCCMI). She lives in the Bahamas with her husband, Oshnal Aldo, and their daughter, Tiara Aaliyah. You can learn more about the author HERE, HERE, and HERE.

About The Book: What started out as a tool to bless and encourage an aunt quickly became an idea to bless as many people all over the world as possible. Everyday Uplifting you, is a book filled with daily nuggets to jump start your day. After watching an aunt broken due to the many obstacles she had been facing, Val decided to do something special for her and started writing nuggets for each day to show her aunt how much she is loved and remind her of the blessing that she is. The book is designed to bless, motivate, uplift and challenge you with powerful nuggets to empower you from the inside out.

My Thoughts: What an awesome book! The book is uplifting and Inspiring without being boring and self-serving! A lot of daily motivational books are more about the author and their life/trials then they are about uplifting others. But this book is refreshingly different. The book has daily, quick, one liners that make you smile and enhance the beauty of your day! The book is short enough that you can read it in one sitting, but the substance is clearly fitting of a daily inspirational book. The colors of the photos are FABULOUS, actually breath taking! The pictures have a euphoric quality that mixes very well with the daily encouraging words. The daily encouragement is short one or two lines however they can be used as the foundation of an in-depth study or devotional. The daily words are short enough that it does not take up much time but meaningful enough to Sustain you, Uplift you, and Motivate you! This is a good daily encourage to accompany a daily devotional.
This is a fabulous daily read and worthy of repeat reads!
On a scale of 1-10 I give this book a solid 9!
You can purchase a copy of this book from Amazon.

Blessings!
Regina

I Wish I Was Married...

For the first time in YEARS I can honestly say I wish I was married. As a matter of fact this may be the first time I can even recall saying that! I was married before... for 12 years! I divorced in 2001 and since my divorce I have never actually said I WISH I WAS MARRIED. I have maintained that if it be God's will than it will happen again with the right mate. So I carried on with my life and once I started back to school I was focused on SCHOOL! There was no time NOR the desire to date.
But in the past week I found myself saying, "I wish I was married to a strong man of God".
But the funny thing about that statement is that it was not even a self serving desire. I did not say it because I am yearning the love, companionship or sex that comes (or should come) with marriage. All those things are beautiful, in their time and place. No, I said I wish I was married because over the past week I had an encounter with two different young men that caused me to actually stop and utter that wish.  Both young men are in their late 20's - early 30's. And both young men are caught up in situations that are seriously frustrating, angering, and confusing them.
I pray for our young men because they are lacking in instruction, support, and mentoring. Pastors, preachers, ministers, et all can not lead congregations of hundreds or thousands and do one on one mentoring/instructing with these young men. Where are all the GODLY MEN willing to be that surrogate, be that mentor, be that instructor?? We need more "boots on the ground"! Everybody cannot be up on the stage/podium! We have real everyday young men, going through real everyday situations, and they need strong men of God to talk to, to guide them, to help them grow into strong men of God. Our young men have NO CLUE how to be Godly Husbands, Fathers, or Friends. They cannot fulfill their duties because they do not know how!
So this past week I found myself saying, "I WISH I WAS MARRIED, and I wish my husband could talk to this young man". My heart breaks for young men going through struggles, with no help, with no instruction, with no leadership or guidance. I can pray a mother's prayer for them but I cannot teach a man how to be a man, that is a MAN'S job. I have son's of my own and I pray for them daily. Because they do not have the benefit of an earthly, Godly father figure in their lives and I know they are lacking that instruction, and guidance.
Since the enemy's goal is to Steal, Kill, and Destroy, who do you think his target is?? The head of the household because once you remove the head the body dies. His other target is children because if he takes them out early they will never grow to see, and actualize their God given potential and destiny.
Do you not see the attack on our young men and children??? I need more seasoned, Godly, men to stand up and lead, instruct, be examples for our young men. I don't need another men's ministry to gather for breakfast, or go bowling, or go fishing, or go golfing. I don't need them to stand around in suits, shaking hands, saying "How you doing my brother". I need the men to work with our young men, pray for AND with our young men. I need them to be an EXAMPLE of what real GODLY MEN look and act like.

I Wish I Was Married, So That My Husband Could Talk To These Young Men...

Praying For Our Young Men,
Regina

Infused Water, My New Love!

My weight has always fluctuated but I have never been skinny or small. I also know that genetically my mother's side of the family is predispositioned to be heavy. This means I have to actively take steps to change some things physically. Generally when people see a heavy person they automatically jump to the conclusion that the person eats a lot of sweets, candy, or lots of fast foods. I do not eat a lot of either. I very rarely eat sweets, am not too fond of desserts, and I do not like chocolate. I hardly ever feast on fast foods because frankly who can afford it? Not me! I am what I call a CARBOHOLIC. Yes I made that up. I am a lover of starchy foods like pastas, rice, potatoes, but especially breads.
My love of starchy foods was I believe a combination of two factions. 1- being ancestral. My grandfather had rice and biscuits with EVERY dinner. No matter what else my grandmother cooked my grandfather always made small pot of rice, he always made fried chicken, and he always made biscuits. So the rice and bread thing, I think I can surely say I got from him. The second faction is economy. I have five children, so when they were growing up I was always conscious of having to feed this family. Rice, potatoes and pasta was always cheap. You could buy it in bulk and it would last us the month or however long I needed to stretch my dollars. It was always about making my little bit of money go as far as I could get it to go, so yes we ate LOTS of potatoes and rice!
When you fast forward some 20 odd years, and you realize the economy still sucks. Have you compared prices of foods that are good for  you to the foods that are not good for you? WOW!! Eating right is definitely not cheap. A 20lb bag of white rice will cost you about $9 but a 4 lb bag of brown rice will cost you ... $5!! I saw a bag of naval oranges in Sams Club for $9, so I kept on walking. But wheat pasta has definitely gotten cheaper so that is a good alternative to regular pasta.
So my focus now is small changes, starting with increasing my intake of water. I have never been a big water drinker, I think it is nasty! In the past I could only drink it with some lemon in it and in small doses! But I am now totally in love with INFUSED WATER! Infused water has various health benefits such as flushing you out, So I am infusing my water and detoxifying my body. The infused water is giving my body vitamins and minerals. It is a small change but it is a start. Different fruits have different benefits and adding the water is a plus. I bought 2 cases of 32 ounce jars (12 jars per case). so since 128 ounces are in a gallon, and my goal is to drink a gallon of water per day. That would mean drinking 4 - 32oz jars a day. I am now at about 3 jars a day! So I am getting there! That is also well over the recommended amount of water for daily intake! Since I am drinking so many jars of infused water, my intake of sweetened drinks (Kool aid) has decreased, so another win/win for me! My first batch of infused water contains lemons, limes, cucumbers, strawberries, and mint. I am doing some more today with mint, oranges, and lemons. Start where you ARE and MAKE SMALL CHANGES!
Changes in eating habits, increased water intake, and increased exercise are a great way to improve your health. I am not looking to be skinny, I am striving to IMPROVE ME!


Have an Awesomely Infused Day Lovelies!!
Regina

Esther Queen Of Persia - Book Review

Title – Esther Queen of Persia, A Courageous Woman For A Dangerous Time
Author – Jim Baumgardner
Publisher – Baumgardner Press
Date of publication – November, 2013
Number of pages – 304

* Jim Baumgardner and CWA Review provided me with a complimentary copy of “Esther Queen of Persia” to read in order to write my review.  The opinions expressed here are purely and truthfully my own and uncompensated*

About The Author: Jim Baumgardner
Born in Wichita, Kansas, Jim Baumgardner grew up in a Christian home. The author’s mother gave her life to the Lord in her late teens, and she brought his dad to Christ after they were married in 1939. April 30, 2013 marked Jim’s 56th year as a Christian. The author continues to reside in Wichita with his wife Linda. They have three children and nine grandchildren. All of the Jim’s books are primarily written for his grandchildren’s benefit. He also makes them available to all others who wish to read and enjoy the stories.
You can connect with Jim Baumgardner HERE, HERE, HERE, HEREand HERE.

About the Book:
Hadassah, a young, Jewish orphan, forced to enter the palace at Shushan, has had her world turned upside down by Ahasuerus, the despot King of Persia. Not only has Hegai, the custodian of women, changed her name, but everything about her life is now controlled by this eunuch. She must witness and experience the heathen excesses of the palace while awaiting her night with the king in his bedchamber. 
Why has God allowed this to happen?  Enter the 5th Century B.C. world of the vast Persian Empire where Hadassah becomes Queen Esther, and her life is forever changed through the providence of God.

MY THOUGHTS:
The story of Esther has always been one of my favorite!  So reading this book was neither a chore nor a stretch of the imagination for me.  The story of Esther is perhaps one of the most told but most ignored stories of the bible.  In the bible, the book of Esther is a fairly short book but sometimes people find bible reading slow and tedious. This book is a good supplement to the book of Esther because it gives you the story in a way that brings it alive! You are on the journey with young beautiful Hadassah who must experience life-changing encounters for a reason she does not KNOW or UNDERSTAND. Hadassah is taken by force from her home. But why?? To become one of the King's concubines? To become misused meat for the soldiers? What about her cousin Mordecai? What can he do? Was Hadassah being taken HIS fault?  Hadassah losses her name and is given a new one. Hadassah loses her dignity being touched, looked at and examined like a side of beef. BUT Will Hadassah lose her FAITH?So many question! This is a story of TRIUMPH, FAITH, FAVOR, and VICTORY.  I absolutely loved this book!
The author takes us on Hadassah’s journey from poor Jewish worker girl to Queen of Persia as we experience the trepidation, fear, and doubts with her. We witness young Hadassah BECOME Queen Esther of Persia. We witness the truth of God's plan and why Hadassah/Esther was the perfect person for that plan! What I really liked about the book was that the back contains scripture references for the chapters so people (like ME) who like to cross-reference stuff as they read can do so!

This is a good book for women’s groups and discussion groups.
The book is NOT slow, NOT boring, and NOT a burden to read. This is an EXCELLENT READ
On a scale of 1-10 I give this book a definite 9!
You can get a copy of this book HERE.

Happy Reading!
Blessings

Regina
