Ayiti Cheri

Hey Loves! So today I am heading to Miami, and then in the morning, my brothers, and I are headed to our beloved Haiti. My eldest brother has been at least twice, while me and my other brother has never been. I am totally psyched out about the trip and I can't wait to share the tons of pictures that I plan on taking with you guys. So while I'm away stuffing my face with goat, chicken, and the likes of original Haitian food, stand by for some updates that I have been working on.

A prochen foi (until next time)

Your Name is Higher, Your Name is Greater {Worship}

So yesterday at church, the worship team ushered us in the presence of the Lord with  this song. The title is "Anchor" by Hillsong and it is on the Glorious Ruins (Live) Album. The lyrics are:

I have this hope 
As an anchor for my soul 
Through every storm 
I will hold to You 

With endless love 
All my fear is swept away 
In everything 
I will trust in You 

There is hope in the promise of the cross 
You gave everything to save the world you love 
And this hope is an anchor to my soul 
Our God will stand 

Unchanging One 
You who was and is to come 
Your promise sure 
You will not let go 

Repeat Chorus 

Your Name is higher 
Your Name is greater 
All my hope is in you

Your word unfailing 
Your promise unshaken 
All my hope is in you 

As we go about our day remember that our hope is in Jesus Christ. Not a job, not a friend, not a guy, not our parents, but Jesus. I know sometimes we get caught up in life and we feel like we have to take on all the stress and worries on our own, but know that God is our Anchor. He alone holds us grounded. No amount of sin, no amount of stress, no amount of worry can shake God. And as Christ as our foundation we too stand unshakable. 

Happy Monday,

I've been known to switch my hair up at the drop of a dime, literally. These are just a few hairstyles that I've had so far this year. Hair is hair, I've cut it, color it, weaved it , braided it, anything imaginable with it. Sometimes I feel like my hair is the only thing that I can control and plus I love the fact that I can change it. When you get a new hairstyle sometimes you feel like a new person. Like India Aire says "I am not my hair".

See you with the next style,

Life's a Beach

What better way to spend your Sunday then at the beach!!! Rest & Relaxation were a definite must this weekend. My co-worker invited me to the beach and of course I couldn't say no. It's the BEACH! I know, I know, some of you are wondering where in the heck do you find a beach in NYC. The Jacob Riis Park is located in Rockaway, NY and is a beautiful getaway from the city. It took us about an hour with 2 buses and a train. Not bad right?! 

I am happy that she invited me out, even tho I was ill prepared, but she was totally on it and we made it work! I'm already contemplating when our next trip will be. And this time, I'll prepared for anything! Below are a couple of pictures that I was able to capture of our Beach Day. Enjoy!

Spiritual Sanity {Fasting Day 20}


For the past 20 days I have embarked on a 40 day fast. This is my first time doing a 40 Day one on my own. I've done fast's before while I was in Texas collectively with my church, however this is my first one by myself. I am currently following the Agape Worship Center Prayer, Fasting and Devotion that I found online here. Wherever that they have specific pertaining to their church I just insert my church information along with theirs.

So on Monday night a friend and I visited Buddakan for dinner. This was my first time going and definitely not my last. A coworker of mine which also is a good friend with impeccable taste for the finer things in life suggested this to me long ago, however this is the first time we tried it. Looking on the outside you would not be able to imagine what the inside looked like. The menu is set up so that you are able to share with the whole table. Thank God it was only us two, so we were able to enjoy it a lot. It was indeed an awesome experience.
