to whatever God called you to. Be all in even if you don’t believe Him for it.
This month I am reading Becoming by Michelle Obama. I am struck by her determination to do things. I love the story about how she fought with her great aunt over piano lessons. Be so fired up for your cause that you are at the recital sitting on the piano bench in front of the audience before you realize you don’t know where middle C is.
As the BSF teaching leader reminded us last week, remember it is not about the achievement, it is about the journey. Be true to the journey.
The other book I read this month was Frederick Douglass Prophet of Freedom. He was another so determined in his cause that the journey was fascinating. He took the initiative to learn to read and write even though it was illegal. He didn’t want to miss anything.
That is the way we need to be. Be true to your journey.

Food is a lot of things to me. On this journey, I am learning something new. One of my favorite foods is tacos and I always fool around with the recipe to make them better. I have learned to make meatless tacos and love them. Not only that, my body loves them.
Here is the recipe.
I use Gardein Beefless Ground.
I brown it in a pan (because I southern I use bacon grease, but you really don’t need any oil to brown this)
Once it is brown, I let it sit on a paper towel to absorb the oil. I mix taco seasoning and water in the pan.
Then I pour meatless ground into the mixture. At this point, I also add fresh pico de gallo.
I let it simmer about 15 minutes so the flavors can mix. I warm tortillas in the oven.
Once the mixture is ready, I add it to the tortilla along with cheese and salsa. I enjoy this more than I imagined I would. And the thing that sold me was that I did not have heartburn like beef sometimes gives me. All of the pleasure and none of the pain.
This is for you. You need to hear this. Everything I have needed on this journey God has brought right on time.
Instead of sitting and worrying about my needs, I am preparing for His answers to my prayers. Instead of trying to figure something out, I am preparing for the promise He put in my heart.
Some of yall are on board while others of you are hanging out on the platform trying to see which way the wind is blowing. What I have learned is you can’t get on a train while it is moving.
Don’t let the doors shut on the opportunity in front of you. Trust the one who created it for you.
An African American woman moved home to take care of her dying mother giving up the opportunity to experience a world beyond segregation. Zoraida Hughes Williams finds that some things have changed about her hometown of Fort Worth, Texas while some have stayed the same, like Hell’s Half Acre, an area where saloons, prostitution and gambling runs wild. Like most of the residents, she wants to keep her head down and stay away from trouble, but it comes in the unlikely form of an Anglo Baptist preacher. He messes up everything and almost gets them killed.
Now is the time to plan those Family Christmas Photos. It is also a good time for Graduation Photos. Book your session now.
