well aint that a word…and that too…and.. thats pretty good too.

all day saturday ii was out with my mom and sisters. woke up at 7:30 to be at mva by 9. left there around 10:30 and went to the mall. seems like we were there for forever but we finally dropped Indi and the baby off at home and went to the grocery market to shop for easter dinner. after we put all the food in the house we went to the movies and didnt get back until about 10 that night. by the time we got back ii was beat. i had to get my stuff together for dance, help my sis do some stuff and then hopped face first in the bed by 11. the plan was to wake up at quater to 5 to wake up for sunrise service but a phone call around 12:30 threw a hex in that plan. line of the night…”SHE LIED!!” ok, ii think ii got that message loud and clear.
ii truely missed the sunrise service…maybe because ii didnt get back to sleep til after two…thanks so much alicia for waking me up in a panic… ii appreciate you. ii got there just in time for sunday school and we were on call to dance… message:: “you dont have to know what song is being played…just dance.” uumm, it took me a minute to get that word because it caused our dance to bomb completely, ii did get a good laugh in tho. but ii got it yesterday, just dance.
second service was cool. we knew the song we were dancing to and altho ii cant stand the song, the dance went smoothly besides the fact that they said Jesus five hundred and twenty seven times…what is up with that?? lol. but the word of that service… “ressurected” bishop was on point and ii promise that was the word ii needed to hear so ii went home pretty content.
we went home, ate dinner with the fam, laughed and enjoyed ourselves altogether. after everyone left my cousins whome ii havent seen in centuries came over. ii made them some plates and they sat and talked to us for a while. word…”ten hundred..” lol…it has no real meaning but now ii know not to say it lol. thanks Theodore, you’re brilliant!!
ii woke up yesterday morning to my nephew making noise in my living room. mommy cooked breakfast and ii was forever grateful lmao. we went to the mall so mommy could do some walking and let the baby run around like he owned the place and around 10:30 we were back in the house and ready for a nap. we all just sat around watching tv and ii just happened to check my myspace page…wowzers… two ppl sent me messages regarding language and ii think that ii got the word “dont allow what you say to contradict who you are..” ii guess sometimes we forget…
the next word came from my own lips… ii dont think ii thought about it before ii said it but after it came out ii gave it a lot of thought… this is what ii said to a really good friend “its not about that, its about being real, being true. not just to everyone else but to yourself. so yeah, ii am a liar cause ii was never true to me.” dont think ii have to really explain that.
ii got to my besties house and saw squirt and scooda and the awesome phrase of the hour was…”no more tisses!! please. ii love you but no more tisses!” lolzz… ii think ii got a lil too happy when ii saw them cause that really was a lot of kisses for both of them haha.
last and final word that ii received came around 8pm after a really funny dance practice… “sometimes you gotta deal with in the moment, talk it out, say how you feel and dont go to bed mad” and that, for some reason, was exactly what ii needed to hear. 

my fav holiday in front of easter…

Posted in Easter/Passion Week, easter?, Good Friday by Tanae' A. on March 21, 2008
ii heart easter…but ii heart good friday a lil more. but why?? ii always wonder why we celebrate easter more than we celebrate more than good friday but ii wont even get into that right now. to me, good friday is more special. its the day that He actually died to me. of course, easter is the day that He got up, its the day that His power was revealed but ii think ii appreciate His sacrifice a lil more than ii appreciate His power. every day that ii wake up ii am reminded that He sacrificed. He gave His life for me and if friday didnt exist ii would not be here and neither would sunday morning. ii guess its times like this that im kinda wishing ii was attending a good friday service rather than sitting helplessly in a cubicle at work. what can be greater than Jesus laying down His life for a lil someone like me?? every single thing that ii have ever done wrong in my life has been forgiven because He thought it not robbery to give His life. i’m just appreciating Him and His life right now…
ii am so grateful for the sacrifice that was made on my behalf and ii am also thankful for Him getting up out the grave.
Happy Ressurection Sunday Everyone… and remember that its not about the easter baskets, the eggs or the big pink bunny. its not even about the suits you’ll buy your sons or the lil frilly dresses that your daughters will hate you for in then years. its about JESUS and so many times we lose sight of that. so warm or cold, rain or sun, morning or night…keep your focus on Him cause when He died, His focus was on you.

a HOLY matrix, um matrimony…nope, just easter lol

it is only wednesday and ii am already crackin up over this weeks events. easter sunday is going to be hilarious. first off, ii know somebody is going to put their daughter in some white frilly dress with sling back white sandals and hair ribbons. and that same somebody is going to put that same daughter in some ugly thin shawl that is supposed to protect her from the tiny gusts of wind that come thru on easter morning. to that mother who is planning to torture that daughter, warning:: IT IS GOING TO BE FORTY SIX DEGREES ON EASTER!!! just thought she might want to know that before she sets herself up for failure. please put your children in COATS!!
and you would not believe that after two hours of sitting for two hours on monday trying to find a song to dance to, we picked some song that is ridic. seriously tho, this song got some wack beat in it so we was practicing and ii rocked off with this holy matrix move mixed with a tick and ii promised mo that i would do that on sunday morning. lmao. this is going to be funny but like India Arie said:: a promise is a promise haha.
ii am also deciding to renew my vows on easter sunday. somewhere along the line ii drew a line in the relationship that ii have created with Jesus. so that line will be erased somewhere around the spot where 5:45 slowly turns into 6am… translation, ii will be in church bright and early on sunday morning for sunrise service and ii know that there better be a mixed crowd on that parking lot when ii get there.
ii am showing up but ii will be dippin out to get a nap in before sunday school. ii am praying that someone brings in our early dismissal forms lmao. matter fact, im getting my own leave slips just in case she forgets. this should be funny, hey, we’re just being OBEDIENT…DuH.
and um, please Jesus allow a certain someone to get her hair did before she get up to dance on sunday morning because we all know that you dont want to rise and see that mess cause ii surely dont. we want to leave this Easter holy because we understand and appreciate the sacrifice that you made just you and I both know that someone should sacrifice a few dollars to get that weave done. Amen Jesus.

church folk say the darndest things lol

so, at the end of our very fun dance we were forced to do a half split. of course, ii did nothing close to a split but Mo and Kim did their’s completely… as ii was getting up off the floor this is what ii heard…
Nina~ “ii can do that”
HebHeb~ “you want me to help you up??”
lmao…me and Mo was cracking up cause ii know that no one but us two heard it and it was the funniest thing. then the other idiot of the day gets on the topin of lotion…oh em gee.
sean~ “i’m just ashy, like if ii was a slave they would’ve talked about me. since ii was born, ii was just ashy. my mother just coughed me out. seriously, she said ::cough:: and there ii was. just ashy. now look at me, im beautiful. beautiful and ashy. but ii put on my watery lotion and it helped.
ii promise we sat back there for twenty minutes listening to this man talk about how ashy he was. like, ii have never heard anyone clown theirselves so hard it was ridiculous… yes, the results of being an only child. lolzz.
oh, and ii figured ii would be nice and relay the message that bishop wanted us all in church t~shirts for easter and this is the response ii got from someone’s mother…lolzz.
someone’s mother~ “what?? who wearing t~shirts on easter?? it is easter sunday, my kids is putting on something nice. aint nobody wearing no t~shirts…ITS EASTER!!”
church folks, say the darndest things and ii lovezz it.

Easter?

Posted in back to the past, celebrations, church, clothes, community, easter?, events, family, issues, life by Tanae' A. on April 2, 2007

When I was little, “Easter” used to be the jump-off. It was the time that we got nice little pretty dresses and we got to get our hair done. Back then, to me, it was just a fashion show. I was so excited about the Easter Egg hunt that follow service and the pictures that we got to take. I was even sometimes excited about good friday because we got fish dinners after the LONG service. Once I got a little older, clothes weren’t really all that serious. I might get a new outfit or something but I wasnt as amused. I came to church and wasn’t really too excited about anything except what people had on. Around that time I would get excited cause all my family would come down and we would have dinner and just chill out. But, for the first time in forever I’m not feeling “easter” at all. When did resurrection sunday become known as “easter” and why?? It seems to me like society always covers up and tries to dismiss the true meaning of things. I’m not excited about “easter” because I’m so hyped up about resurrection sunday. I am soo grateful that Jesus died for me… he didn’t have to but he did it and that is the ultimate sacrifice…

So… what really is “easter”?? Just another day in society… the real holiday is Resurection Sunday…thats we should be celebrating.
