I am a Christian and I run a site for study and conversation.  I thought it would be nice to invite you all to the site.  Come check it out.  The Three AM.


Haters are going to hate…..

Day 14:  today is hard to say what I am thankful for.  I just learned that there are some states in the US asking to be removed as a part of this great country.  Now, I can pretend that this has nothing to do with the fact that Obama is a black man but the truth is much to hard to ignore.  We’ve had many Democratic Presidents in the past and never has anyone requested to be removed from the US.  I can understand hurt over losing the election but what I can no longer ignore is the out right hate that is being shown.  From what I can tell, it is not a majority in any one state but a group of people in more than a few states asking to be removed as a part of this country.  Here is what I could say I am thankful for:  For those asking to be removed you do understand you have a right to leave.  If having a black President upsets you this much and your hate for all people who are nonwhite pains you this deep, leave.  I am not sure where you will go in this world and not find nonwhite people but good luck with that.  So having said all this, I am thankful for freedom of choice.  Try to exercise your right to that choice, that my husband by the way is fighting for you to have, by leaving.  I love all my Republican friends and I trust that they are not among this group of haters.

As an Army Wife, I must say that these events really do hurt me.  Not just because I am black but because I really don’t understand hate.  It is the one emotions that my parents worked hard to keep out of my path.  Hate is like a cancer, it kills you inside out.



There are many things one can say about Fall. I love when I wake up in the morning and the air is crisp and clear.

I like sitting on my porch with a hot cup of coffee and watching the beauty in nature.




I took a few pictures while driving on Post yesterday.
I really live living Herr at Fort Benning. I’ve

met some reality great friends and life here is filled with things to do.

There are many things one could say about baking. For instance, when baking one of the greatest thing I love is the end products.

I love to see what I’ve created come out so well. It gives me such pleasure to watch others enjoying what I’ve created.

At the end of a long day at school I love to come home and bake. I’ve been working a lot on my decorating skills. They aren’t great yet, but I am getting better, hopefully soon I will make something that really looks great. I’ve even started selling some of my baked goods which is a big plus for our finance. I’m hoping to start a catering business one that will actually bring in some real income but for now, I just enjoy baking for the sake of baking. It relaxes me. What are some of your favorite things to bake? I would sure like to see some of your pictures. I will share mine as I create things, the good and the bad. Just don’t laugh too hard. Hahaha
The other day I made this carrot cake it came out really good on everyone enjoyed it.


As you can see my decorating skills leave something to be desired but the cake itself was really good super moist and I made it from scratch
