The Celebration

Guess what today is?

It’s the day that I deemed #traveltuesday! So let’s talk.

Niagara Falls, NY | 2020

You know everyone doesn’t get the luxury to travel the world but it’s something the God has purposely etched into my heart. This past weekend I visited Niagara Falls, NY (because Canada doesn’t want us in thanks to CO- ViD19). But y’all I must say it was breathtaking.

We went for my sister and I’s birthday! She turned 30 and I turned 29. So we CELEBRATED!

You know celebrating birthday’s is a very important tradition that my family (especially my mother) loves to do. It has been a blessing to be passed down to me.

We ate good food, we went to an Escape Room, we talked, we laughed, we went in the jacuzzi, and we enjoyed each other’s company.

What does the word CELEBRATE mean?

Dictionary.com says to celebrate mean to make known publicly, to proclaim

God doesn’t forget the little details when CELEBRATING. For example, when Jesus was born He was celebrated by His family and those who came to witness the King’s arrival to the earth. He was given all different kinds of treasures and gifts. This was to make His presence “known publicly.”

When you celebrate others with a cheerful heart expect from God the unexpectant when it comes to you!

The Bible says “you reap what you sow”. That principle is applied everywhere in your life whether good or bad.

So y’all celebrate with somebody today, like my sister and I did.

The Journey

Bahia Principe Esmeralda | Punta Cana, DR

I must say that I love to take journeys and when I say journeys I mean the longer the timespan the more memories that are made, the more enjoyable the trip is. My family makes it a point to go on a journey at least once per year. Whether it be a flight to a resort, a Airbnb stay, a cruise, or a road trip we make time and we make a way as long as God sees fit.

I call myself an explorer. I love to see outside of where I am, to capture the beauty of other places, and to eat all different types of foods. But I ask myself what is a journey really about?

Dictionary.com explains the word to mean:

1. a traveling from one place to another, usually taking a rather long time; trip:

2. a distance, course, or area traveled or suitable for traveling:

The Thesaurus describes this word as adventure, exploration, expedition, travel, or progress.

See my family when we travel there is so many of us at any given time it can be between 4 – 16 with the children lol and there are laughs, tear good and bad, jokes, stories of different kinds, and just pure fun. Once a year we make it a point to go out of the country together on an adventure to makes memories that’ll last a lifetime. We’ve been to San Juan, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Grand Cayam Islands, Jamaica, Cuba, and Key West just to name a few. It is our way of bonding.

God has called us not just to work but to enjoy the fruits of our labor with those closest to us.

And trust me the journey is well worth it!

How do you bond with those you love?
