Calm Friday Night #2

Happy Sabbath, friends. Whether you’re a Christian or not, I say that also as a salutations. Time for a week’s reflection. I’m gonna to see if I post one of these every Friday evening. Hopefully I didn’t jinx myself by saying I would and I end up not doing it. 


On my day off from work, I mowed both our lawn and front lawn, so my dad would have less yard work to do. As I once mentioned, he has his own lawncare business. Originally, Dad started it for me so I had money to pay for college. We call it D&D Lawncare. D & D is short for Dave and Dad. 

I went to the gym in the morning like I said I’d keep  doing. Before I hit any of the exercise machines, I took the time to stretch. I’ve never done yoga, but I do think I did this one particular pose during my Taekwondo days. It’s called the Supta Virasana. Yes,I had to look that one up. 

I don’t know how in the world I was able to still do this. It baffled the crap out of me, as well as a couple of my social media followers, who saw the short video of me doing the pose. Did I walk away that day without aching pain? Of course not. The next day I felt a minor strain in my lower back. Nothing major. I’m all good now. I just gotta be more careful and not overdue things.

I listened to a 90’s song I hadn’t ever heard. The song was “Anything” by the music trio 3T, who are the sons of Tito Jackson of the music group The Jacksons. Also, no brainer, they are nephews of the late Michael Jackson, known to many as the King of Pop. What made me fall in love with this song was the three part harmony. You can truly hear it at the beginning of the song without the music accompaniment. I love singing acapella and think being able to sing without music shows how good of a singer you truly are. The beginning of the song goes something like this…

(Hopefully this video plays when you click on it) 
I reuploaded the Acapella app on my phone to do this. Now I know why I took it off in the first place-the hassle of getting the video just right, or right enough. Who has the time right? Well, clearly folks like me. 

I shared one of my old poems. A poem that many college students and alumni can relate to. I think we can all agree that starting your Monday morning off in school totally blows.


Nothing much- gym, work, reading blogs. 


I wrote yet another poem; one about the struggle of worklife. Also, it was free verse. Writing that poem brought me back to all those times in creative writing club when I was recommended by peers to get away from the rhyming, which eventually I did. I appreciate that not all poems have a rhyme, scheme, because sometimes I rack my brain  trying to think of words that sound the same. Occasionally, I even have to google good rhyming words. 


Early in the morning I put air in my tires. Be advised, the outside temperature tends to affect the pressure within them. Check them whenever you can,  and be sure to have your own air pump in your vehicle. 


I went to the optometrist and got my new pair of glasses. Before leaving with them, I had to have them adjusted twice. Oh the struggle of having a small head. Aside from being told I look good, the woman at the desk made me even happier by informing me that they’d cost less than what they thought. God is good. Of course I love them, which is all that matters, but what do you guys think? 

That was my week. Currently, I’m just chilling in bed in pajamas.  I’m going to listen to some music and see if I can do my Sabbath school lessons tonight or in the morning before church. Tomorrow is church communion, which I got to take part in as a deacon, so I should make sure I have something black and white, ironed and ready to wear. Let me know how your week went. Have a good night. 😊

I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.
