Well today was the day that the lord saw fit to bring me into life!! =]Hello guys I know its been a while since I have blogged.Well today was the day that the lord saw fit to bring me into life!! =]&& I came here to reflect on my year being 18. As with every other high school senior we do the whole prom scene, the last homecoming, cheering on our football team, kicking it with our closest friends and most importantly graduation. If you are a summer baby like me turning 18 is a plus. My high school years were full of tears and laughs. Thankfully at times more laughs than tears. Now that I have completed my first year in college, I can truly say that high school was just stepping stone to get with the big dogs College. With every birthday I have I take some time reflect on all the good things and all the bad things. I ask myself how have I changed What did I do when I was a year younger, and why I wont do it because I am a year older With me getting older how can I help others who are younger than me? With everything that I do God is the forefront, and he leads me to where I need to be and where I am suppose to be in Christ. I like to go by this little quote that states With God before me, Who can be against me? While teenagers are grow up(like myself) and trying to figure out their identity. What person are we suppose be? What are we suppose to do with our lives after high school? My high school graduation experience was something When they call your name and you know you did all that you were suppose to be doing. And youve come this far. Its such an amazing experience. My high school experience was one that I will never forget. When they called my name It was a special time but it did not register that I was a senior until they said we would like to introduce the culver city class of 2008, and tears began to flow as I walked off that stage for the last time. I have no other way to explain I feel but all I could say at the time was thank you lord. Shays graduation was nothing but God. For that he deserves all the glory and praises! If you have graduated then you understand where I am coming from. But now that I have turned 19 I am expecting bigger and better things in my life and in my spiritual life. I am making moves towards my marks Spiritual and worldly! So you guys watch out here comes Lady Shay!!

Hey you guys. i was just sitting here thinking about what make up did i want to buy next! i haven't bought any MAC in a little while. I know that MAC came out with a line called "Style Warriors." I believe this would be appropriate because this line in my opinion was catered towards people of color =] Now if i want to get something from their line i will probably need to move swiftly before they sell out. LoL. I kept this blog short and sweet =]

"Seeing The Present For what it Is, The Past for what it was"
How many of you have been victims of holding on to the past. The past memories that don't brighten your day? How many girls hold on to that guy we thought we loved;But really we were just a sex object to them? How many guys are holding on to that girl we thought was the"one" but it turned out that she was just two timing you? Well this is where my topic comes in "Seeing The Present For what it Is, The Past for what it was. " I am also a victim of holding onto the past. Holding onto the one female who looked me a little to "crazy". That person who cut you in the lunch line? That one old person who gave you some "real" advice that hit home but you hardened your heart so you woouldn't recieve it? Holding on to the past memories of the girls who did you wrong in highschool. We have to see the past for what it was! I am a christian and this blog will pertain to the word of God and what he has to say. Im praying that i will be able to be used by God to minister to you. =]
The definition of present is; being, existing, or occurring at this time or now; current: the present ruler.
The defintion of past;gone by or elapsed in time: It was a bad time, but it's all past now.
I have been faced with so many obstacles in my life. There were times when honestly i felt like why does God even care about me. There are so many more people who deserves his love.
but Galatians 3:26-29 Children of the Most High God
26:For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27:For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28:There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.29:And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Those scriptures that we just read was reassurance for me, knowing no matter how the devil tried to get in my head I WAS ALWAYS WORTHY OF GOD'S EVERLASTING LOVE; AND SO ARE YOU! Everday i remind myself that jesus died on the cross for me! Just for me that in itself is a hallejuiah moment. Have you ever taken the time and just tell GOD thank you for waking me up, For giving me movement in my limbs. Letting my family be okay!! When was the last time we have done it.
If we already know that God is worthy to be praised then why can't we stop whatever were doing to say a quick prayer of thanks.
There were times in the past when I would do everything in my power to avoid people; Just so that i didn't have to see their face or remember the things that they have done to me. But when i fully committed my life to God; He changed my thoughts && my actions.
I'm so glad that i have a changed mind set of if they apologize or i apologize it's over its in the past, and im moving on. There's a quote"Life must be understood backwards; but... it must be lived forward. " We learn from our mistakes and we move on. We cant ontinue to be stuck in one spot because of what happened in the past. We were once on fire for God then we slacked off; Stopped going to church, not paying attention to the word. Then we have a change of heart and want to get back to the spot we was in God. We can't get to our destination focused on the part where we stopped"it's not where you start, it's where you finish" So im just encouraging you to get where you want to be in God! I promise that it won't be a easy path to take. Like my cousin lauren told me"Your on this path to christ, and people will be throwing curve balls at you, and if you keep your eye on the prize(God), you will get your reward of eternal life"."Life is a journey which paths we take, what we look back on, and what we look forward to is up to us. We determine our destination, what kind of road we will take to get there, and how happy we are when we get there.”

A Sunday rehearsal Chataira and Lady T sings unto thee o’lord. This is a song that we composed from scriptures from the bible (Psalms 25). The words are true because we are not ashamed. We’re not afraid to let people know that were a child of the most high God. This is a fun song to sing, it’s a different sound. But I found that the spirit can be ushered in singing this song. This song had me in tears in about 20 minutes of just repeating the words, singing the words unto the lord. I hope you guys enjoy this song, leave comments <3

This is a silver/gray black look that I put together. I was getting ready for a Thursday night church service. I was looking at this black and silver sweater I own. So this was the inspiration to my look. Also, I found a picture of Jennifer Hudson, and she has the same look. =] except she has false lashes and glitter on top of the shadow. It’s Beautiful
