There were so many blessings during the month of June….almost too numerous to count. I share these monthly blessings posts to not only remind myself of YHWH/God’s goodness; but also to encourage others to truly trust YHWH/God. In my May Blessings post, I shared a testimony about a conversation with YHWH/God; and how He had blessed me with help three days later. A day after that (which was June 1st), YHWH/God blessed me with more help. To say that I do NOT enjoy cooking is a DRASTIC understatement. In my heart, I wanted a chef to just cook dinner. It was the meal that I least looked forward to making each day. Again, during my conversation with the Most High, I didn’t complain; I recited Psalm 121:1 to Him; and thanked Him for being my helper. Not only did God send me a Chef; but one who could make Caribbean food (which is an anomaly in the area where I live). In my eyes, not only did YHWH/God bless me; but He also delivered me from having to cook dinner and lunch. The Chef makes so much food; that it has been more than enough for dinner and weekends. I just praise YHWH/God, because He’s interested in every detail of our lives; as well as truly gives us the desires of our hearts. He also gives us exceedingly beyond what we ask. I just praise and thank Him!
Another blessing during the month of June was home renovations. I was vacuuming the rug in my living room; and thought to myself: “This rug needs to be cleaned.” I then thought to myself: “This whole house needs an overhaul.” The very next day, my husband came home with a new living room set. He asked me my thoughts. I responded that I LOVED it! (My husband has great taste; so I totally trust Him to select things for our home). From there, we have been upgrading each room. We’re not done yet; but we’re well on our way.
The blessing in all of this is two-fold. YHWH/God takes care of me and my household, because of our covenant relationship. I rely on Him alone to provide for me. There’s no pressure on my husband to get things for me. YHWH/God will put things on His heart; and He does it. The second part of the blessing is that we are able to pay for everything in cash. Once our hearts took hold of the revelation of Romans 13:8, we made the quality decision to stay out of debt; and trust YHWH/God for everything.
Perhaps the greatest blessing of June is that one of the contractors working in our home gave his life to YHWH/God. On the day that it happened, my husband was upstairs witnessing to him; while I was downstairs praying for him. I just praise YHWH/God! One more treasure for Him.
There were so many more blessings; but I don’t want this post to get super long. Thank you for reading. Please share some of the ways YHWH/God has blessed you; and may He bless you even more. Have an excellent weekend!
This is a dream I had in January that I released as a prophetic word. Because of what we are seeing right now in the earth, I am reposting this word and I am crying out for, decreeing and declaring this unprecedented, accelerated demonstration and manifestation of the Lord’s justice in the earth. Prophetic Word […]

I don’t have many photos of just me. I’m rarely alone as a wife and unschooling mom of four. I chose this pic from one of our hikes last week; because I love my children and being in nature (when pesky insects have not yet come out).
I chose this pic because it’s just of me; and one of the things that I have enjoyed all of my life (fitness/exercise).
This pic was selected because my husband is a big part of who I am; and I just LOVE flying! There is something about looking at things from a higher perspective…both physically and spiritually.
I nominate the following ladies. Thank you for sharing your gift of encouragement through writing with so many of us. I look forward to seeing your post should you choose to participate.
It can be greatly disorienting to be in a storm, especially when key information on the storm is absent. Generally, we are able to prepare, endure and outlast a storm by knowing how strong it is and how long it will last. Absent of that intel, we are ripe for all sorts of panic and […]
This week’s declaration is based on Romans 8:37-39: I am more than a conqueror through God who loves me. Nothing can separate me from His love.
I’m a bit of a planner; so nearly every Sunday, I write out a meal plan for the week…actually three. My husband likes his chicken, seafood and turkey. My children eat VERY little meat; and I don’t eat any. It’s pretty easy to manage. I can usually make “side” dishes that everyone likes; but no one (except me) likes red quinoa and kale. It is SO very good to me! I mix together sauteed mushrooms and kale, red quinoa and chikpeas. It’s easy to make, takes little time, very filling and it’s delicious (to me)! On these nights, I will usually make chicken, rice, broccoli and yams for my husband; and black beans (which my children love), rice, yams and broccoli for my children. Are there any other moms out there, preparing multiple meals?
As always, have an EXCELLENT rest of your week and I’ll see you around the blog!

I sat upon my white rocking chair looking at the manicured gardens, swaying like a wave in the evening sun. A holy hush fell as the evening sunset was filtering through the mulberry tree and the butterfly bushes. Golden monarchs drifted in the heavenly evening light. The glory of God fell upon me in waves […]
Psalm 121:7-8 (TPT) – He will keep you from every form of evil or calamity as he continually watches over you. 8 You will be guarded by God Himself. You will be safe when you leave your home and safely you will return. He will protect you now, and he’ll protect you forevermore!
Thank you for knowing that I would sometimes feel fear;
And for assuring me that, You’d always be here.
What a relief is Psalm 121: 7- 8…
It says: You guard me Yourself! This makes me feel great!
