It only took six months to come to pass! Let’s backtrack… In February 2021 (after procrastinating long enough ) I created a vision board. Daily, I declared (and still do) my affirmations, my desires and dreams through prayer,  chats with Abba, and a simple glance at the board. Now, let’s be real… We all know, this world has gone mad because of Rona and its long-lost sister Delta. Masks are being forced to wear…

If someone were to tell me I’d be doing all of these things and more, five years ago I would have looked at them and said, “You’ve lost your ever-loving mind.” I then would have eased in the phrase we all love, ” The devil is a lie” and mosied on my merry way.
