I gotta tell Ya.. maybe WE haven't interacted..

But YOU have inspired ME, impacted me, in a positive Way.. for years!
Your city Garden stuff was beautiful FULL!🌱
I used to read Your blog & can't find it now.. how being a STRONG, empowered WOMAN, freaked people the heck OUT!

YOU are a Goddess. 💜 That is all.

...ok, so now, You are doing the Sacred Work of caring for Souls in hospice.
Please know how Beauty FULL & awwwsome YOU are.
Just freakin WOW 💖💖💖

& ear luvins & belly rubbins for the fur Buddy.
Awwwww!

Tomorrow is Juneteenth.

Tomorrow, on Galveston, the birthplace of Juneteenth, I will join the procession, from Reedy Chapel, the Mother Church of the AME in Texas. We will solemnly walk from Reedy, to the court house, where Buffalo Soldiers will read Article 3.
FREEDOM.
EQUALITY. FREEDOM.
Usually, there is a JOYFUL walk back to Reedy, & a Service of Spirituals & Gospel music, & shoutin', & Community, & Love, & HOPE, that the future holds great things. Singin' & dancin & shouting with JOY.
Then, we have a lil feast & visit & celebrate.

This year, for me & others, is different. 2 years & 2 days ago was the Charleston massacre. In the past 2 years, how many Black people executed without JUSTICE, by cops & civilians? How many trials not holding murderers to account?

This is the 1st post-Obama Juneteenth. He & his Family made us SO proud, so HOPE FULL.

We lost a Wonder FULL Friend & Teacher this past week. I went to her funeral yesterday, we celebrated her amazing LIFE. Sister Izola Collins had 87 years of rockin' this Earth! 💖
She wrote the book...
"ISLAND OF COLOR ..Where Juneteenth Started"

So, we'll march, & I won't be the only one in tears.

For more Juneteenth info, PBS (Houston) has a great series, "Juneteenth Jubilee".

If You feel so inclined, please send Prayers & goood vibes, 5:30pm, central time, to Galveston, to Texas, to ALL the World, without exception.

Aho

MyGod, MyGod, my God. Help us.

My Heart.

Thank You, please update when You can.
I have nothing to say. Too sad. Out of tears, it hurts to swallow.
Please, God. Blessings on us ALL.

Thanks for this! My 2 thoughts/2 cents

#1) Thank You for remembering single moms.
I was 1, & so was my mom.
#2) "Lord's Prayer".. Although I consider mySelf a Christian, I have strong pagan tendencies. I was once told I'm too "churchy for pagans, & too witchy for church". I'm ok with that.
Anyways, in my researchin years ago, I read an original translation of this prayer, from original Aramaic to Hebrew to English. It was amazing & BeautiFULL! Alot longer, very descriptive, & very little of it sounds like the common prayer we know. The original (as I remember) praised the glory of Nature, Earth & ALL planets & heavenly bodies, that ALL humans & living creatures are equal & related.
Mostly about Love, & compassion, & JOY.. NO fear.
It was beautiful, & I wept as I read it.

Wish I had a copy of it.
Thanks for sharing Your adventure! "Amennn"!
