A Look Inside My Search

In a search for answers to the woes in my life, I found God. The truth that lies in knowing God for myself, placed me on a quest for peace. While on this journey, I have discovered that there are others seeking this truth also and that I can help. I have a Doctor of Ministry degree from Catholic Theological Union, not to rise above anyone, but to better serve everyone. I am on a journey towards peace, speaking truth that opens people up to God.

Jury Duty

As I sit in the jury assembly room determining just how I'm going to spend my time, I glance at the people around me. Truly the selection process gets a cross section of people.

God in all shapes, shades. What an amazing God.

May I use this time to quiet my mind and heart to hear God not only speak but lead and encourage me onward.

Sankofa 2011

I've been anticipating the writing of this topic for a week. I put it off cause I just can't stand typing with a broken finger. Now for those who know me, typing is difficult for me without a broken finger. LOL!

Anyway, looking back over 2011 I must shout Praises to God yet again for His GOODNESS!!
In January 2011 I was toiling over my thesis-project and didn't see the end in sight. We experienced Chicago shut down by a record snowfall which gave my thesis-project director all the time he needed to tell me what still needed to be done. Ugh! January also brought me onboard a project at work that had way too many downs.

February 2011 - OMG! I'm still writing. I can't believe there is still more to do. Prayer?? You mean beyond "Help me get this writing done! or Don't you see I'm working here?" My spiritual life was fading fast and into this my husband kept encouraging me to attend daily Mass at St. Ailbe. Wow the Holy Spirit is truly powerful.

March 2011 found me finishing my thesis-project and coming to realize how much I had missed people. For too long I had neglected friends and family and the Lenten Season afforded me the opportunity to put things in right order - God's order. By the time Easter had arrived I was ready to leave the tomb with Jesus. What was amazing is how easily we allow ourselves a tomb-like existence all while we are pretending to walk in resurrection-light. The family vacation to New York in April was revitalizing.

May 2011 - GRADUATION!!! CONGRATS dr. timone davis!! nuf said

June 2011 I taught at Xavier University of Louisiana in the Institute for Black Catholic Studies Program and embraced once again God's vocation for my life: Preach the Word God places on my heart. Teach the faith no matter what. Inspire young adults to grow in Jesus' love.

July 2011 - December 2011
My finger hurts with all this typing. Wanna know what happened? You'll have to contact me for more details. Know this: Through the pain, the loss, the sorrow, the disappointments, the ANGER!! GOD granted me joy, sunshine, Mercy and GRACE and I praise Her for giving me Himself so freely that I may grow in faith and courage.

Moving Towards Peace is ever so hard, but SOOOOOO worth it.
