Cleanse my Soul & Renew my Spirit

Hey Divas, last week I mentioned how God was testing me. It’s by no mistake when this happens. Whew boy is he not only testing me but seriously pushing me to look at myself to grow. I swear this quarantine Pandemic Coronavirus of 2020 has shown me some ugly truths about myself and my past. I say ugly but I truly mean deep-rooted issues that I had no idea even existed. I am honestly happy that God is showing me these things because it allows me to change now before I allow these things to affect my marriage and future children.

I like to call this season a cleansing of the soul and a renewing of the spirit. Today’s meditation scripture comes from Pslams 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Have you ever heard your parents or a wise elder say be careful what you wish for… Well, I must say I had been praying this prayer and here I am now. God is truly working on me and I know I have a long way to go but during this time I have been finding myself praising and understanding more about myself and things that didn’t make sense before are now. I have learned that I have full control over my mind body and spirit. I choose to allow God to guide me through this thing we call life.

For that, I am pleased with the journey that I am on. Has God been cleansing your soul or renewing your spirit? I would love to know so let’s chat! Have a good Monday and stay focused.

Speaking of keeping it simple and light most of you know I love to eat. I eat just about anything… well there’s something on my list that I don’t enjoy, however, fruit is at the top of my list. So why not start your day off with a wonderful fruit smoothie. I love drinking smoothies in the morning 1 because they are light, tasty, healthy, and give me a boost of energy.

Pick Your Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup strawberries
  • 1/4 cup of banans
  • 1/4 cup pineapple
  • spinach – I just throw some in there
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk/soy milk vanilla flavored
  • 1/2 cup of ice
  • splash of apple juice or any type of fruit juice you like (optional)
  • 1/4 cup of frozen yogurt (optional)
  • Ice I like my smoothies sometimes chunky and the ice does the trick
  • You may add protein or fiber supplements if you like.

 

Blend It Up

You may use frozen or fresh fruit.  I like to use fresh as freezing fruits and vegetables sometimes the nutritional value is a loss. Now here’s the fun part put all your ingredients in the blender. Run your blender for a good minute to make sure everything is blended together. This recipe is for 1 serving double the servings to make more.

Maxi Dress Dreamin

I have been on the hunt for summer maxi dresses. Lately I haven’t seen any that I truly fell in love with. However you know my girl Eva Mendes (collection) – from New York and Company always comes through! Every since I did my closet clear out I only have a few maxi dresses in my wardrobe. Adding this beauty was a must.

Maxi dresses are like jumpsuits to me! Super classy easy outfit all in an instant. you can easily dress them up or down once again depending on the material. This dress is super light weight and I encourage you to wear a slip or shorts underneath as it’s a bit see-thru. There wasn’t  much for me to add to this dress as it speaks for itself.
