Happy Father’s Day ♡

On the third Sunday of June, people in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada celebrate Father’s Day. A day to show our appreciation for the fathers and father-like figures who are present in their lives.

A father’s job is to love, protect, discipline, empathize with, and provide open arms to his children. The men in our lives teach us strength, love, forgiveness, and friendship. And without our fathers’s love and guidance, many of us wouldn’t be who we are today. Today is a chance for us to thank our dads for every sacrifice that they made to give us the lives that they never had.

Today, I wrote an original poem named “Father of Mine” to celebrate this special day and thank fathers around the world. I hope you all love it as much as I did! ♡

You’ve been my rock, and kept me strong
Sacrificed a thousand times
You never left when I did wrong
It's hard to believe you're the father of mine 

Ever since my birth
Our bond was set in stone
Your voice is a reminder 
That I’ll never be alone

You’re not just my father
But you’re also my friend
Through thick and thin, both losses and wins
You’ve stayed true until the end

And even when you’re miles away
You’re still right by my side
The wisdom still resides in me
From my everlasting guide

I’ve wondered a thousand times
Does anyone have a father like mine?
But all I need to do
Is look at you
And I realize

You’re a one of a kind design

Once again, fathers are a blessing in our lives–both our earthly and Heavenly Father–and I thank God for not only His guidance, but for that of every single father that He has used to give us instruction, strength, and love. And I hope that everyone was able to show some love to their “father of mine” today.

Happy Father’s Day, and I will see you all next time! ♡

Observing Juneteenth: A Celebration of Freedom

Hello, beautiful people! I’m Q’Zion, and welcome or welcome back to my blog! ♡

As you all know, there are a bunch of holidays that many of us celebrate each year; Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Valentine’s, and New Year’s are just a few examples. And while those are all great, there is one holiday in particular that was recently made a national holiday due to a bill signed by Joe Biden, coming into effect on June of 2021. That holiday is Juneteenth. And today, I’m going to tell you all what it’s all about.

What is Juneteenth?

In short, Juneteenth–a combination of the words “June” and “nineteenth”–is a holiday celebrating the freedom of the last African slaves in the United States on June 19, 1865, over two years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Not only is it a mark of the end of slavery within our country, but also the freedom of African-Americans. This year, it just so happens to be shared with Father’s Day, which falls on the third Sunday of June.

Why should we celebrate it?

Even though Juneteenth is considered a national holiday, most Americans know little to nothing about it. This percentage includes some African-Americans, like myself. I believe Juneteenth is a holiday that should be observed and celebrated by American citizens of all nationalities and ethnic identities. Here are some reasons why.

1. We need to learn the good and bads of our nation’s history

While slavery was an unfourtunate element of the history of the United States, it is important that we know about what slaves went through before they were freed, their struggle to gain all of their natural rights, and the people who helped make African-American freedom a reality.

2. To help fight for equality

While Black Americans are now free from slavery, we are still constant victims of police brutality, discrimination due to the color of our skin or the way we dress our hair, higher chance of imprisonment, and higher employment rates. Our world has come a long way from its past, but racism is still a reality among some. Juneteenth gives us a chance to fight for equality for ALL human beings.

3. The freedom of slaves affects every American

As soon as the last African-American slaves were freed, it was a step forward to a more understanding, anti-racist, and fair country and world. Even after they gained their freedom, our black ancestors still struggled to gain all of their legal rights as American citizens. And many of us still struggle in today’s world. But with every peaceful protest, campaign, and usage of other personal platforms to spread awareness about Juneteenth, we can all work together to make our nation better than what it was decades ago.


Hopefully, this helped you all understand what Juneteenth is, as well as its importance. While the world isn’t perfect, we are making progress. And Juneteenth is a reminder that when we work together– in faith, perseverance, and love–there is no goal that our nation can’t achieve.

LET’S CHAT~Had you ever heard of Juneteenth before you read this post? If so, did you learn anything new about it today?

Thank you so much for joining me! I’ll see you next time! ♡

June 12 is a special day . . . here’s why

Anyone who reads my blog knows that I tend to use National (and Global) Days as inspiration. Not only do they address super interesting topics, but they are also amazing blog post ideas. Therefore, today I did my routinely check of June 12’s National Days, and there were so many interesting options that I didn’t know which one to choose.

Instead of making that utterly impossible decision, I decided to discuss three of the National Days for June 12 all in one blog post! I’ve got a lot of talking to do, so let’s just get this party started!

National Loving Day

Although we should love others and ourselves every day, National Loving Day is the perfect opportunity to put in an extra effort to help everyone around you feel loved. But to be more specific, this special holiday is catered to the celebration of interracial couples. The holiday was inspired by Mildred and Richard Loving (a black woman and white man) who got married in 1958. Less than 10 years later, they went to court in the case of Loving vs. Virginia, causing the Supreme Court to make it illegal for any state within the country to ban interracial marriages. This National Day is a reminder that love is a feeling that goes far beyond something as simple as race.

National Children’s Day

Honestly, being a kid is amazing. And although we can anticipate what it will be like to be adults, it’s important that we enjoy every single second of our childhood. National Children’s Day is not only a celebration of how children light up the world, but also to spread awareness about kids who have mental and physical illnesses. What I love about this National Day is that it gives kids a day of their own, and acknowledges that self care is an important practice regardless of how old you are.

Race Unity Day

Diversity in friendship circles in real life and the media is always heartwarming for me to see. I love seeing people of different races embrace each other’s differences–in fact, if there was more racial unity in this world, I think it would be a better place. Race Unity Day gives us an opportunity to educate ourselves on racism in our countries and world, how it has changed over the years, and what we can do to spread awareness for equal rights for all people regardless of their nationalities.


June 12 is a very special day due to its important meaning as it adresses diversity and the young people who make up over one fourth of the world’s population. I really enjoy looking at the National Day’s because they allow you to learn so much about what’s happening in the world, and the wonderful slices of life that deserve to be celebrated.

LET’S CHAT~Do you have a favorite National Day? If so, what is it?

Have a blessed day, y’all! See you laters! 💖

10 Father’s Day Gift Ideas for the Dad in Your Life

Many of us have a male role model in our lives who makes us laugh, remains present, provides for us, teaches us, and always has a listening ear: this my friends, is a father. There are so many dedicated dads out there that, just like their female counterparts, deserve to be celebrated.

Father’s Day is on June 19th . . . in other words, right around the corner. To show our dads how much we appreciate them, it’s time to start to think about what we should buy (or make) as their gift(s). To help you get started, here is a list filled with 10 thoughtful Father’s Day gift ideas for the father figure in your life.

1. Grill — A savory surprise for any dad who often cooks for those he loves is an upgraded grill. Think of it as a gift for your entire family; you’ll all get to enjoy the next family barbecue.

2. Deluxe Shaving Kit — Do you have a father who has been using cheap safety razers for as long as you can remember? Give your dad a cleaner look with a luxury kit that will allow him to shave in style.

3. Robot Vacuum — Stay-at home dads are on the rise these days. But just because some dads do the housework, doesn’t mean they like cleaning. A robot vacuum that sweeps the floors will serve as a very well deserved break.

4. Wallet — No one ever said that Father’s Day gifts had to be complicated. A leather wallet is an item that your dad can carry around during any outing; a constant reminder of your love and appreciation.

5. Slideshow Picture Presentation — A tear jerker of a Father’s Day gift is a video containing photos of you and your siblings with your dad, from the time you were babies up until now. In between, you could also show a sweet clip of you and each of your siblings sharing what you love about your father. This is a nice idea if you want to do something for your father that your entire family can enjoy.

6. A Book of Dad Jokes — Dads are the kings of corny dad jokes; they always know how to make us laugh, and maybe even embarrass us while doing it. In good fun, a book filled with a large supply of dad jokes are sure to put a smile on the face of any father who likes to make others laugh.

7. Wireless Charging Station — If your father works from home or in an office atmosphere, chances are he uses a lot of electronics. A portable charging station that doesn’t need a cord is a mess-free solution for charging his devices when he’s on the go or working at his desk.

8. Funny “Best Dad Ever” Mug — Maybe you have a father who drinks a cup of coffee every morning before work. A mug for the best dad ever–especially one that can make him laugh–will likely go to good use.

9. Cologne — Many men enjoy the feeling of smelling good, including fathers. A cologne with a fresh scent that fits your dad’s personality will be a good addition to his fragrance wardrobe.

10. Comfy Sneakers — Never have I met a dad who doesn’t appreciate a nice pair of sneakers. Shoes are a really nice way to add a versatile–yet comfortable–item to your father’s wardrobe. Perfect for every dedicated dad.


Fathers are truly a blessing from God; our Heavenly Father and the best dad there is. They are a huge influence in how we learn life lessons and how to be responsible, good people in this world. Here is a huge thank you to all the loving fathers out there who do everything they can to give their children the lives that they’ve never had. You are definitely appreciated!

Have a spectacular day or night everybody! Peace in! 💙

Happy Memorial Day 💙🇺🇸💙

On the last Monday of May every year, which is May 30th in 2022, people all across America are celebrating Memorial Day, when we honor the lives of American soldiers in the Navy, Army, Coast Guard, Air Force, and Marines for all the sacrifices they make every day, beginning in the moment they made the decision to serve our country.

Although my family doesn’t throw a huge party for this holiday—despite the fact that several family members of mine have served us–I firmly believe that Memorial Day is a holiday that deserves to be acknowledged; it gives us a chance to thank the people who leave their families for long periods of time to protect the people of the United States.

I’m quite sure that is a hard thing to do, especially being all the way across the world from home. Especially all while risking your life in wars, and sometimes loosing close friends in them. The nobility of every soldier deserves to be recognized.

Many families in America celebrate Memorial Day in a wide variety of ways. While some visit their loved ones at cemeteries, others join in at a local parade or have a family barbecue in celebration. I’m really curious, do you celebrate Memorial Day. If you observe the holiday, what do you do in order to celebrate?

I’m quite sure not all of you live in America, but it would be super cool if those of you who do have a family member who is or was an American soldier and celebrate Memorial Day would share how you observe the special day in the chat.

Once again, thank you to all American soldiers for your dedication and constant service to the people of our country. I pray that you have a peaceful, loving, happy, blessed day with those who you love, both today and many days to come. May God bless you all. ♡

Have a beautiful and blessed day everybody! See you next time! 💞🇺🇸💞

Happy Mother’s Day ~ 5/8/22

I wanted to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to you, your mothers, and anyone that you know who is a mother. Our mothers (and motherly figures) are some of the most special people in the world. Thank you to every woman who has nurtured, cared for, and lent their wisdom to another.

To celebrate Mother’s Day, I decided to hand-paint a gift for my Goodmommy (grandmother and motherly figure) who I am a greatly thankful for. I wanted to do something special, and give her a gift that I made myself. Considering that I’ve been painting very frequently most recently, I decided to make a painting that Goodmommy could hang up in her room to remember this Mother’s Day.

I thank God that I was able to finish this last minute. In the end, the painting ended up gorgeous, and the colors will look great inside of Goodmommy’s bedroom.

We plan on making this a Mother’s Day tradition in our home. This whole process was a super fun challenge; I’m excited to see the idea that God will give me next year.

Once again, Happy Mother’s Day everyone! I’ll see you next time! 🌹

5 Thoughtful Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day 💖

This Sunday is also known as Mother’s Day, where we celebrate the wonderful women whom God has blessed to deliver us into this world. No matter how old we are, our mothers are always an important part of our lives. They have given us their time through their nurturing kindness, everlasting wisdom, and love that lasts a lifetime.

So, on this special day of the year, it is important that we honor our mothers for their contributions in our lives, families, and communities. As a helping hand to everyone who has been contemplating what to do for their mothers this Mother’s Day, here are 5 thoughtful gift ideas that are sure to put a smile on her face.

Her Favorite Flowers

We can’t go wrong with a classic: a simple bouquet of our mom’s favorite flowers. Chances are, your mom has tossed around the flower or color of flowers that she likes the most. Not only are flowers beautiful with equally elegant aromas, but they can also show your mother that you pay attention to her comments and interests. A bouquet is a perfect way to show our moms how much we care.

A Gift Card

Most women have at least one favorite store or shop that they visit whenever they get some free time on their hands. Again, a good tip for gift giving is being attentive to little details such as this. A gift card is a cheap, simple, yet sweet way to treat your mother to a little something nice. After all they’ve done and bought for us on our special days, the least we can do is return the favor.

“Best Mom Ever” Mug

Does anyone here have a mom who loves a cup of Starbucks or home-made coffee in the mornings? If your response is “yes,” then a perfect gift for this Mother’s Day could be a quirky “Best Mom Ever” mug. A cup that our mothers can see and use daily serves as a constant reminder of our gratitude for every sacrifice that they’ve made for us.

Girls’ Spa Day

Most moms would love a day of relaxation. Therefore, what better way to meet that desire than by treating them to a nice spa day? Even if you don’t have the money to go out or you prefer to stay at home, you can easily whip up homemade face masks, a few robes, some cucumbers, and a nice dinner (with the help of a parent or guardian, of course.) No matter where the spa day takes place, your mom will surely enjoy it.

Sweet-smelling Perfume

Although every woman isn’t fond of the sweet scent of perfume, many (and I dare say most) are. If your mom happens to be a fan, then consider buying her a perfume of a scent that she enjoys. This is a great option for a gift, specifically if you are looking for something that will be long-lasting; a bottle of perfume could last your mother until next Mother’s Day!


Sure, materialistic gifts for Mother’s Day are always nice. However, we should never forget that the best gift our mothers could have for their special day is our time. Don’t feel pressured to get her something out of this world expensive; as long as she spends the day with her children, she will have a wonderful Mother’s Day, both this year, and every year to come. That’s something that no money could buy.

Thank you so much for reading, everybody! God bless you all! 💖

I got a gift for Easter…and I LOVE it!!! ♡

In my family, it is a tradition to get a gift basket (or other present) to celebrate Easter. And although it isn’t set in stone, Goodmommy is always so sweet to do something special for both of us to enjoy. Although I love spending Easter simply surrounded by family and friends while celebrating the Lord, I must admit that this was a really sweet surprise!

As soon as I saw this, I thought that it was so adorable. You can tell that Goodmommy truly knows me and my style–whenever we surprise one another with something, we are bound to love it.

This cute new kit comes with this HUGE ceramic rainbow that says “DREAM BIG” on top. I love to keep my room (and our house, in general) filled with positive and motivational messages, so that was a detail that I noticed and fell in love with immediately. There are a total of 6 small paint containers (although I must admit that it was a pretty good amount for the scale of the rainbow.) And to add some shiny finishing details are 4 gold stars and 29 diamond-like jewels.

Unlike most of these kits, I didn’t do many changes at all to the color scheme. All I did was tweak the pinks and the blue, and the rest was smooth sailing. Overall, the solid-color paints had amazing coverage. Although, considering that I did add some of my paints in the paint that came with the kit, I’m not sure how much I would’ve had left without them.

The glitter paint looks very translucent on the first coat, but with about 2 or 3 layers, the glitter actually sticks to the surface really well! This has got to be one of my favorite things that I’ve ever painted. The jewels make it feel so luxurious, too.

As you can see, my finished product looks almost exactly like the example on the box. Besides the color tweaks, I also switched the order of the colors of the rainbow and put the dark pink outside and the light pink on the top stripe instead of the other way around. Although they aren’t drastic differences, I think they were worth the extra effort.


Thank you all so much for going on this art journey with me! And never forget, the more you practice at anything that you want to achieve in life, the easier it will be and the more you’ll love it! As the rainbow says, “DREAM BIG!”

Have a beautiful and blessed day, everyone! Peace in! ✨

Happy Resurrection Day ♡

Thank God for a beautiful Resurrection Day! Me and Goodmommy, as well as some of our family, had a great time during praise and worship at today’s church service, this morning. All though we were tired from waking up so early, it is always a blessing to be in the House of the Lord with other followers of Christ.

Despite the fact that we are sinners, and we have all fell short of God’s Glory, He sent His one and only son to come on Earth and pay for our sins with the ultimate sacrificial love.

Although I didn’t write the poem the I will be sharing today (which is instead from an online article) it summed up what was in my heart perfectly. I hope you all enjoy it! 💛

He was bruised and brought healing!

He was pierced and eased pain!

He was persecuted and brought freedom!

He was dead and brought life!

He reigns and brings Peace!

The world can’t understand him,

The armies can’t defeat Him,

The schools can’t explain Him, and

The leaders can’t ignore Him.

Herod couldn’t kill Him,

The Pharisees couldn’t confuse Him, and

The grave couldn’t hold Him!

Nero couldn’t crush Him,

Hitler couldn’t silence Him,

Other religions can’t replace Him, and

The world can’t explain Him away!

He is light, love, longevity, and Lord.

He is Goodness, Kindness, Gentleness, and God.

He is Holy, Righteous, mighty, powerful

He is Jesus, the Sweetest most powerful Name that I know, and I L💛VE Him!


Have a beautiful and blessed Easter Sunday, everybody!

Remember that God is love, and regardless of what we do, His love for us will never falter; this is what He showed us when the Son of God, Jesus Christ, died, rose, and lived again. Then, now, and forever. 💐

Whom Shall I Fear? | A Christian Poem ~ Reblog

Hey, everyone! In honor of Good Friday–a day of remembrance and appreciation for what Jesus did for us–I will be reblogging a poem about the Prince of Peace today. The title that popped in my spirit was Whom Shall I Fear. It’s a poem based on Psalm 27:1, about how with Jesus, everything and anything is possible.

I hope that this poem will inspire you mightily. Enjoy! 

Whom shall I fear?

When You are the Lord of lords, and the King of kings

You are good and Your mercy endures

As your many angels sing



Whom shall I be afraid?

When You are my stronghold and my refuge

You’re always by my side

And I can’t deny that you always pick me up, at the oh-so-perfect time



Why shall I be wary?

When You are a promise keeper; You speak truth with your words

No love of any kind compares

To how Christ loves the church



Who am I to You, my Heavenly Father?

I’m the apple of your eye

A branch of the vine

You set me free and made me Your daughter



Who can come against me?

When You have won this battle

Before any hand can touch me

No matter where I travel



So, whom shall I fear?

When You are the leader of the world

The many boys and girls

And pure white pearls



Thank You, Jesus

I know this to be true

Because of who You are, there’s nothing to fear

Hence, my godly fear for You

Overall, I had a lot of fun writing this poem. What I love about poetry is how you can use words to paint a picture. It’s almost like a painting, but you decorate the canvas with your words instead of art supplies. Plus, any creative platform that allows me to talk about the goodness of God is one that I favor.

Thank you so much for reading! Have a beautiful day, and God bless you all!
