Some Inspiration for the Day

The question is not "How am I to find God?" but "How am I to let myself be found by him?" The question is not "How am I to know God?" but "How am I to let myself be known by God?" And, finally, the question is not "How am I to love God?" but "How am I to let myself be loved by God?" God is looking into the distance for me, trying to find me, and longing to bring me home.
--Henri J. M. Nouwen (1932-1996)

My Plea to Girls Everywhere

Little girls everywhere please stop listening to the lies of trifling/lame boys, they are no good for you, respect yourself, know that you are a gem, and pursue your dreams, not some lame boy's fantasy. Please, I urge you, don't get caught up in foolery.

Wake Up

Fonzworth Bentley's take on Black History Month, very much liking his take because it is a given that folks need to wake up and take the legacy of their forefathers seriously, living nonchalantly and in ignorance will never be the formula for success.

Blood Done Sign My Name

I'm going to see this movie (not just because my dream boo Nate Parker happens to be in it)...I just happened to be browsing for movies to see this weekend and I came across the trailer for the movie...a must see, it's based on a true story and a book was written by a history professor, Timothy Tyson. Here is a synopsis: "In 1970 Henry Marrow, a black Vietnam veteran, is murdered by a local white man, Robert Teel, and his sons. The Teels were acquitted by an all-white jury, which caused riots and arson in Oxford, N.C." 
I'll definitely have to read the book after I see the movie of course.
