What a weekend!!!

Today is another frantic Monday. I want to just crawl back into bed and remain there forever. Since I can't, let's get this day started.

My weekend was very eventful. Cool weather, great conversations and great sporting events. My son along with his best friend's teams won their football games.

Last weekend, I spoke briefly about what was going on with Bishop Eddie Long of New Birth Baptist Church in Lithonia, Georgia. If you haven't heard, "bing" him and you will definitely get caught up. Anywho, my pastor, Reverend William E. Flippin Sr., spoke briefly last week, but this week, had more to say and a lesson to teach. He spoke from Ephesians 5:15 and his topic was "Walk the walk and Talk the talk". It was so powerful. Bascially, he preached that if you are going to say something, mean what you say and back it up with your actions. How many of us do that on a daily basis??? Really??? Especially when it comes to dealing with people that are close to us. Rev. Flippin and Bishop Long are friends, and you can tell in his facial expressions and his sermon that he has been hurt by the allegations. Not only has he been hurt, but the media attention has hurt the reputation of black ministers and black churches. This is nothing new to the black churches, just been in the dark for so long. Enough about that....moving on.

I wrote on my Facebook page about the 18yr old Rutgers freshman that jumped to his death about his sexual encounter with another male was posted to the internet by his roommate and his friend. This week, there were several vigils in his honor. My heart goes out to his family, friends, and the entire campus of Rutgers University. My heart also goes out to the roommate and his friend. why?? because somewhere in their upbringing or their surroundings, something went terribly wrong and they need prayer. I have never understood why some people take pleasure in doing someone wrong or in someone's misery. It baffles my mind. It also shows me that we as a people have too much unused time on our hands. We have got to be more tolerant in the choices of others. We may not agree, nor understand, but is it really our business??? I say if it causes no hurt, harm or danger to myself or anyone else, let it be.

Last but not least, here's a why me folks question. I was suppose to ask a thought provoking question at the end of my weekly blogs, but forget. Oh well, here goes?

Why do I seem to attract men that truly believe they have it going on, when in actuality they don't? This is just in my opinion. I know what I want and relay this to the opposite sex. When they don't meet my standards, I politely move on. They on the other hand take offense. Why???? Just move on to someone else. It just wasn't for me. I was told in Atlanta there are 10 women for each man....move on to the other nine....please!!!! I would love to have your take on this, women and men

Why me folks??? Why not!!!!



  1. They take offense because they want to be the one to walk away first, duh.

  2. Great post! I am also heartbroken for that Rutger's student and his family. And you are aboslutely right, we need to pray for his roommate as well. I cannot imagine the guilt that he must be carrying.

    As far as your question goes - I have to agree with Sharon - they want to be the first to walk away. A lot of men are intimated by strong women - and you are that and so much more!
