It Takes All Kinds Of People to Make This A Beautiful World

diversityMost of you know that I enjoy couponing. I really enjoy giving to others. But for the past year what I have learned about me is that I HATE hypocrites!
I get all kinds of thoughts coming across my Facebook feed. Most of it is well wishing something personal, some of it deals with cruelty to animals, but the bulk of it deals with racism in America. Let me return to the subject of me couponing.
When I started my money-saving journey I never knew the doors of understanding that would open because of a paradigm change. In the last year I’ve lost friends for various reasons and most of those friends claim to be extremely religious or extremely knowledgeable about sex, race, religion, politics, and all other things that goes along with living life. And as I began to coupon I found myself in a spiritual place I didn’t even know exist and was able to read the hearts of those that claimed to love me.
I found myself caring less of what the world thinks of me as a black person. I found myself caring less of how people viewed my beloved car that is missing a quarter of its front bumper, a broken pulled down latched that was done by a Walmart worker. I found that my opinion mattered despite the rejections of others. I found I could validate another person’s opinion even though I didn’t agree with their belief.  I found myself feeling more put off by folks forcing themselves in my life in one form or another. I found myself being inspired by the single good-looking younger than me caring about morals successful business owner man down the street. I found myself reflecting upon my marital vows and how I treat the guy that goes to work everyday and misses sleep because he must get his load to the buyer on time.  I began to really put thought to how he gives me his paycheck each week (should he make a check) and questioned if I could do the same. I found myself wondering how I was going to pay back all the student loans my youngest took out in his name to attend college. And for you folks that feel my youngest should pay his student loans, close your pie holes! Please!

As my son’s parent it’s my job to see that he gets the best start in life. And! Since I made such a mess of my life by making poor decisions when I was young and netted nothing financially to aid my children when it came to helping them enter into the world as successful adults, then my son’s student loan repayments became mines because his entry into adulthood debt free is my job as his parent.

But the thing I’ve learned from couponing is that it takes all kinds of people to make this a beautiful world.

The Prayers of Black Women: Lord My Friend Is Upset with You

Artist:  Henry Lee Battle

Artist: Henry Lee Battle

Heavenly Father:

Good morning!  Today is a new day and with every new day comes new mercy.  Thank you, Lord!

Today father I want to chat with you about my friend Joe and his struggles with your choices.

Father, my friend can’t understand why you won’t stop injustice.  He feels because he questions your existence and why you created humanity, he is going to hell.

Lord, I don’t need to tell you my following thought because you already know.  My friend is not the only one that feels disdain towards you; and the beauty of your deity is that you understand those feelings because you know their source.  Sadly, what so many people don’t understand is your redemption plan.

When your son died on the cross his death covered doubt and unsavory thoughts.  Therefore, my friend and those that feel as he will be given the same opportunity to live in Heaven as the next person; because in your eyes there are no little sins or no big sins, sin is sin.  And when sin is committed and the sinner ask for forgiveness all is forgiven.

So today Lord, I’m praying for those that hate you.  Lord give them a mind of spiritual clarity, hearts to believe in your existence, a mind to understanding there are many parts to your spiritual body, give them one on one time with you as you share and eat spiritual fruit with them, so, afterwards they can feel your presence in their lives.  In Jesus name I ask these things.  Amen

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us today our daily bread.  Forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.  Matthew 6:9 – 13

Kelly Osbourne Causes Outrage After Latino Gaffe On The View

I didn’t see this portion of the View but I get what she’s trying to say. Illegal immigrants are given the shittiest jobs and cleaning toilets are among them; and you certainly won’t find Donald Trump cleaning toilets not even his own. To me Kelly’s statement holds painful truth. And I’m sure people know that Latino’s do other jobs than clean toilets so what’s the problem?


Social media exploded in outrage after Fashion Police host Kelly Osbourne tried to defend Latinos from presidential candidate Donald Trump on Tuesday morning’s episode of The View, but ended up offending many of them instead.

“If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?” she responded when asked about what she thought about Trump’s controversial remarks on Mexican immigrants. The candidate previous said that Mexican immigrants are “bringing drugs, bringing crime,” and that “they’re rapists.”

The View co-host Rosie Perez jumped in as Osbourne stammered: “There’s more jobs than that in the country for Latinos, and Latinos are not the only people who clean toilets.”

Twitter quickly joined the conversation with a hashtag, #QueridaKellyOsbourne (Dear Kelly Osbourne).

My Husband Raped Me

Good morning! When I first saw the titled I asked “How can a man rape his wife?” So to answer my question I read the article. Her chilling account is very scary and begs the question “Why she didn’t leave when he started giving her non-prescribe medicine?”


My story starts like a lot of people’s stories. I had a whirlwind romance and married a man I put all my trust in. We had a happy marriage for a few years, and then we began to drift apart. Our lives were consumed by everyday events — children, school, work, sports — which meant we were a typical married couple working on raising a family and living a normal life.

Seven years into our marriage, I started having memory and fatigue issues. Strange things would happen to me and I couldn’t remember how. One night, I woke up with a dissolving pill in my mouth. I had no recollection of taking a pill and was very confused. Another night I woke up with my clothes off. That was strange, since I wear clothes when I sleep and could not remember taking them off. I began to worry that I…
