Wherever You Go, Sprinkle Love – Words of Wisdom #10

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV (New International Version)
4
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. …

If you’ve ever wondered what true love is, then this scripture sums it up completely. God is love, and He showed us how much He loves us when He sent His only Son to die for us and give us eternal life, so long as we confess with our mouth that He is God and believe in our hearts that He died for us and rose 3 days later. (Romans 10:9)

As followers of Jesus Christ, it is important that we continue to be evangelists for God by spreading His love. There are many different ways to spread God’s love to others. Whether you do something for a specific person, or a simple act towards a complete stranger, spreading the love of God is always a blessing that we should act upon in our everyday lives.

Here are a few simple ways to spread the Love of God:

  • Be proactive in loving like God — If you ever have trouble with this one, please write down the scripture at the top of this post. We are told to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. (Leviticus 19:18)
  • Do simple acts of kindness — The Love of God can be shown in many ways. Sometimes, all it takes is a little kindness.
  • Learn to forgive others — Forgiveness does not have to be for the other person. Nor does the person who hurt you have to remain in your life. When we forgive, we are making sure that we are right with God and that we maintain a spirit of love and a pure heart.
  • Be a cheerful giver — This one sort of speaks for itself. The Bible says that to be a cheerful giver, we must “sow bountifully” if we want to “receive bountifully.” In other words, we need to be willing to give freely and without hesitation in order for God to bless us abundantly. (2 Corinthians 9:6-7)
  • Pray for people — This can be tough, sometimes. Particularly when it comes to praying for your enemies. But the Bible says to love your neighbors and your enemies. (Matthew 5:43-48) Sometimes praying for people means asking God to help someone that you hold close to your heart (family, friends, etc.) Other times, it can mean that you are asking God to teach us how to forgive, and to help our enemies to see His glory.

5 Qualities I Value in a True Friend – Reblog

Author’s Note: What’s up, y’all. Today, I’m going to do a reblog of one of my favorite posts where I share 5 of the main qualities that I value in a friend. I hope you all enjoy! ~ Q’Zion ⭐

If you had to choose 5 words to describe each of your friends, what would they be? Afterwards, think about 5 things that you value in a good friend. How many qualities do your friends have in common with your list?

In our teenage years, it’s natural to desire to be popular and have a lot of friends. However, it may be shocking when we realize that there are only a few people who really have our best interests at heart. This doesn’t mean that anyone is perfect. It just means that it’s better to judge whether a person is your friend or not by how they treat you and who they are as a person, instead of how pretty or popular they are.

Today, I wanted to share 5 Qualities that I Value in a True Friend. If you would like, you can comment your values, either in a friend in general or the friends that you already have, down below!

  1. Loyalty

Although it’s a sad reality, there are a lot of people that will pretend to be your friend, and act like they don’t know you, the next day. I really appreciate a friend that sticks by my side, no matter what. Even though we might not always agree, I appreciate people who always have my back, despite the bumps in the road that we might face from time to time.

2. Honesty

Another thing that I love is when a person can admit their mistakes or feelings. I know that no one, except God, of course, is perfect. However, when we do make mistakes, it’s a good thing to apologize for what we did. Also, if a friend of mine feels a certain way about a situation, them explaining to me how they feel allows better communication, and therefore, a better relationship!

3. Humor

Do any of you have that friend that can make you smile, even when your day isn’t going as planned? If so, then you know how awesome of a feeling that is. Personally, being someone who loves to laugh, a friend who knows how to make me giggle, especially when I really need it, is a great friend in my book.

4. A kind heart

This is pretty practical, but I value a friend who is kind. This not only means that they are kind to me, but that they try their best to be kind to everyone around them. A person who can get along with a majority of people that they meet, and truly has a heart for people is a person that I truly respect and will likely get along with.

5. A cheerful attitude

Never have I liked to be around negativity. Therefore, having a friend that is optimistic and just about always in a good mood can make me feel good as well. Positivity is the absolute best policy!

I hope you all enjoyed my list of 5 Qualities that I Value in a True Friend. Remember, a good friend is not a perfect person, but a person who has a good heart and spirit. The inside is what matters most!

Have a wonderful day everyone! ✨

The Beauty of Jewelry

Exodus 35:22 NIV (New International Version)
All who were willing, men and women alike, came and brought gold jewelry of all kinds: brooches, earrings, rings and ornaments. They all presented their gold as a wave offering to the Lord.

Jewelry has many different purposes: a representation of our faith, our culture, our family history, our relationships, our sense of fashion, and the list goes on. In the Bible, it was even used as an offering to the Lord.

One of my favorite things about jewelry is that it doesn’t have to be super extravagant or flashy. Jewelry can be as simple as a chain or as elegant as a thick beaded necklace. Even the smallest piece can enhance an outfit by adding the small but sweet “cherry on top.”

Considering that Goodmommy has her own jewelry business, she is always super sweet when she shows me the jewelry that she’ll know that I’ll love (that’s just how well we know each other.) It’s amazing how even a small necklace or simple earrings can tie a whole outfit together and make even the most casual attire elevated with elegance. Plus, it’s another way of displaying our love for God, and as followers of Christ, it’s important that people can see the Lord in us as His examples. I have my own jewelry box in my room to keep everything organized.

This short-and-sweet post dedicated to National Jewel Day was a joy to write. Me and my family love jewelry for more reasons than one, and I thank God that we can use jewelry (in a tasteful manner) to give Him glory.

Question of the Day: Which type of accessory do you like the most (rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, etc.) Feel free to comment down below. (P.S. my personal favorite would be both necklaces and earrings :))

Thanks so much for reading! Have a beautiful and blessed day, everyone! 💎

7 Simple and Chic Valentine’s Day Decor Ideas

I really enjoyed writing yesterday’s post for some reason, and Valentine’s Day is getting closer by the second. I figured, why not keep the theme going?

Now, since I’ve already given you guys some ideas for how you can make your Valentine’s Day fun for the whole family, let’s now direct our attention to decorations. Valentines Day decor is romantic, sweet and playful. But the rich colors give off just the right amount of sophistication.

Here are 7 simple and chic ideas for how you can make your home flood with hearts–literally.

Also, BEWARE. Gorgeousness is coming up! :))

Festive Heart Throw Pillows

Real talk: throw cushions are perfect for any season, but heart-shaped pillows for Valentine’s Day are so elegant. Not to mention that they’re cheap and may go in any room that you please. No matter what type of chair you have, cushions can make any seating area more spectacular.

Flowers, Lots of Flowers

Flowers are a classic Valentine’s Day symbol that aren’t just good gifts, but also good decorations. In my home, we love to keep fresh flowers on our island, which we use as a dinner table. Their dainty and delicate appearance are sure to stand out in a vase, around your fireplace, or even on your front door. The possibilities are endless!

LED Neon Light Wall Decor

I am in LOVE with this. If you really want decorations that make a statement, especially in a creative space like a home office or your room, I highly recommend an LED light. They look fantabulous in red, their lifespans are long, and they’re great for ambiance.

DIY Heart Tree

To be honest, this might be even better than flowers! Anyone who is looking for a DIY activity is sure to love this one. All you need are some thin sticks or branches, which you are likely to find in your backyard. Then, cut out paper hearts, and glue them to the ends of the sticks. I really appreciate how this looks home made, but in a cute way.

And just in case Do-It-Yourself is not really your thing, you could always use a Christmas tree or mini-tree and add heart ornaments to it. We did so in our living room and it’s gorgeous! I’d definitely recommend.

Cinematic Light Box with A Sweet Saying

In case you aren’t familiar, Cinematic Light Boxes are little boxes with LED lights. What makes them unique is that they come with a set of letters that you can insert inside one of the 3 sections to create a message, which I believe is a great way to fill your home with loving words to set the mood. If you add some type of hanging decoration around it with a few rose petals, it’s sure to scream Happy Valentine’s Day.

Mini Heart-Shaped Candles

Candles are in style all year round. The rich aromas can fill any room with a sweet scent. But they are also extremely romantic, sophisticated, and lively: perfect for a Valentine’s Day dinner date.

Candy Display

One of the best parts of this holiday of love is the candy. A candy display full of Sweethearts, M&Ms, or maybe some baked goods that you made yourself are perfect for any family get together. And if there are lots of kiddos in your family, make sure you stock up. Otherwise, the candy will be cleared out in a snap!


All of these cute ideas are sure to make any home more Valentine’s Day ready. There’s nothing like decorating for the holidays, and February 14th is no exception! What did you think about these decor ideas? Do you and your family decorate for Valentine’s Day?

Have a beautiful and blessed day, everyone! ❤️

Think Before You Speak – Words of Wisdom #5

James 1:19 NIV (New International Version)
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,

In my lifetime, I’ve heard the words “be quick to listen and slow to speak” so many times, I can’t even count. And I’m grateful that I have, as in this short scripture lies a lot of wisdom that everyone should know and follow.

When some become angry–which in my case, isn’t often–it can be tempting to do or say something that they shouldn’t. All this is is the devil knocking on a door; trying to destroy a relationship, an opportunity, or the peace in our homes and hearts that he doesn’t want us to have. But just like any knock, it’s up to us to choose whether or not we will answer the door.

The Bible says “Refrain from anger” In other words, it is telling us to think before we act and speak out of that anger. God is slow to anger. And as followers of Christ, its important that we follow in His footsteps.

Now, keep in mind that its normal to be angry sometimes, specifically when we are wronged or deceived. While we should be slow to anger, being angry is not the only factor of this equation. It is also how we act even in our anger and how long we allow the anger to effect us.

Ephesians 4:26-27 NIV (New International Version)
26 “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold.

Okay, okay, so let’s wrap up this addition to Words of Wisdom with some key points:

We, followers of Christ should…

  • be quick to listen and slow to speak: we need to listen–and think–before we act.
  • refrain from anger: no matter what, we should be slow to become angry.
  • NOT sin in our anger: even when we may get angry, we must NOT sin.
  • NOT give the devil a foothold: just because he knocks doesn’t mean we have to answer. DON’T answer that door. Instead, we need to follow God’s path for us.
  • NOT let the sun go down while we are angry: this means we also need to learn to let go of our anger and learn to forgive.

Remember that it is a wonderful, and crucial, thing to ask God for help if you struggle with refraining from acting out of anger and being slow to speak but quick to listen. I find myself asking Him for wisdom, too. As long as we humble ourselves enough to admit that we need Him, and we obey His words, He is always able and willing to help us in all things that will give Him ALL of the glory.

Have a happy, healthy, beautiful and blessed day, y’all!

And remember, God is Love.

Happy Black History Month!

Guess what, y’all. Today is February 1st, also known as the very beginning of Black History Month. People in countries around the world celebrate the contributions of black brothers and sisters, as well as our allies, to help our nation progress into what it is today. Everyday is a part of our history. Everyday, new history is created that will last through generations.

Black History Month is simply when our history, heritage, and culture are acknowledged, not only as black people, but as American citizens and human beings.

This month isn’t just about self recognition, or the recognition of others. It’s also an opportunity for us to educate ourselves and learn about contributions to the world and our nation, as well as how we can participate in peaceful, modern movements such as Black Lives Matter. Black History Month is a time to give back to our communities and continue to take steps forward.

And the beauty of it all is you can take time to honor Black History no matter who you are. Anyone can make the choice to become educated, so that we may rise together and continue to make progress in the places that we call home.

What choice will you make today? ❤️💛💚
