DO NOT EXPECT to be treated fairly in this life. People will say and do hurtful things to you, things that you don't deserve. When someone mistreats you, try to view it as an opportunity to grow in grace. See how quickly you can forgive the one who has wounded you. Don't be concerned about setting the record straight. Instead of obsessing about other peoples opinions of you, keep your focus on Me. Ultimately, it is MY view of you that counts.

As you concentrate on relating to Me, remember that I have clothed you in My righteousness and holiness. I see you attired in these radiant garments, which I bought to you with My blood. This also is not fair; it is pure gift. When others treat you unfairly, remember that My ways with you are much better than fair. My ways are Peace and Love, which I have poured out into your heart by My Spirit.

Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. - Colossians 3:13

I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness,as a bridgegroom adorns hisself like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with jewels - Isaiah 61:10

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding- Ephesians 1:7-8

And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into out hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.- Romans 5:5

From time to time, I'm going to share some of my music with you.  Today it is "God In Me" by Mary Mary.  If people only knew some of the things that comes along with the success that they think you have just from looking on the outside.

Thought I would share my Daily Devotion that I read today:

It says --  Come To Me when you are hurting, and I will soothe your pain. Come To Me when you are joyful, and I will share your joy, multiplying it many times over. I am All you need, just when you need it. Your deepest desires find fulfillment in Me alone.  This is the age of self-help. Bookstores abound with books about "taking care of number one," making oneself the center of all things. The main goal of these methodologies is to become self- sufficient and confident. You, however have been called to take a "road less traveled": Continual dependence on me. True confidence comes from knowing you are complete in My presence. Everything you need has its counterpart in Me.

"I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing." John 15:5

Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:4


Hello there!
Wow it is so great to stop and exhale! We have been going non-stop, but it has definitely been a great thing. We jump started the season off with meeting with the Mayor. He took time out of his busy schedule to congratulate last year team on our success, as well as welcome the new player to this years team and wish us all the best. It was truly a pleasure and an honor to be there with him.

From here the game began. We started out the season 2-0 in the Russian league. We played our first game against Spartak Noginsk. They are a very talent but different looking team this year. They put up a great fight against us, but we were able to prevail in the end and come out on top with a victory.

The following game in Russian league was against Dynamo Moscow, who had fellow American player Laura Harper on there team. We were so ready for this game, we came out of the blocks against these ladies. I was really proud of our team and how we responded to this challenge, because we know that this is a team that we will see later on and they will be much better. With that said this game put us at 2-0 in the Russian League and after the progressing season that I have just come off of; it is great to be right here right now. ( ahhhh the little things in life).

On yesterday, we had our first Euro-cup Game. This was the first of our new journey to try and repeat the championship; which we know will not be easy. And Botus the Turkih Team that we competed against was proof of it. Although we started out playing well, that team that had Former LSU Lady Tiger Quianna Chaney, Courtney Paris, and Christi Thomas on their team would not just go away easily. It was definitely a hard fought game by both teams. But I was definitely please to see how well my teammates and I are gelling together and we are still missing two big pieces to our puzzle in Ephipany Prince and Michelle Snow who will both be joining us very soon. Its scary to even think of how good of a team we can really be.

Again I am happy to be where I am right now, and the best thing about this is not only that I get to continue to play basketball; but I get to continue to grow and mature as a player, person, and a leader!!!!!

I will be in touch with you all very soon. There are more games ahead, more road trips, and best of all more fun!

Hello everyone, I am back off of hiatus. I have to tell you that my time resting was so good for me. Thanks for understanding.

I am currently back in Russia and yes it is time to get back to work. This is my second day her and I will say that through the jet lag and tiredness I am enjoying my teammates. Ill wait until the other Americans get her to speak to you about them. They will be arriving first thing next week. right now we are enjoying my teammate Bimba's birthday. We are at the bowling alley, and lets just say that basketball is definitely the sport that I was blessed with talent for. LOL. I'm not horribly bad but I won't say that I am amazing either.

It's all in good fun and I am having a blast. We'll be back in touch with you all very soon.
