Truly Answering His Call

What is the call? The call has been described as, doing what is meant for you.

This could be a number of things!

Alhamdulilah I believe I'm being called to serve my community in various ways. My herbalist and aromatherapist training is to be used to serve others and alhamdulilah I believe homemaking is a calling that we must answer.

No, We can't hang up, disconnect and ignore the call. Its time to answer, reconnect, and act, with a renewed purpose.

He put us here, in our home. He blessed us with the children who we see every day, He gave us a spouse to help and love. And He knows what He is doing... He chose you to take care of these gifts and for this purpose, we should feel honor and appreciation SubhanAllah.

Answer the call!

You can truly begin to answer the call by telling yourself, you can do this! He gives you just what you need, He knows what you can handle. And as soon as you realize that you can handle it, the sooner you'll have a better handle of your home ;)
He has given us the tools to help us handle it. Organizing, cleaning, schedules etc... The resources are out there. You don't have to feel overwhelmed but you do have to feel in control of your homemaking blessings. Start slowly and seek out those tools to help you.

Realise that homemaking is more than cooking, and cleaning. Our purpose in this area is more than a hot meal. Its about healing, nurturing, and supporting. Healing the body with healthy foods, nurturing their hearts with joy and emotionally providing uplifting words to ease their troubles. Supporting them in their growth and development and gently directing them along the way. Homemaking goes beyond the laundry. Its about having blessings and taking care of them in the best ways.

Our Lord made no mistakes!

We sometimes say this phrase "I'm a stay at home mom." I never use this term anyone... I respond "I'm a service at home mom." He has placed me here and I provide a variety of services alhamdulilah!
He is great and He knows best! I ask Him to guide all my steps because service is no light work :)

When should you stop avoiding the call?
Right now! Pick up, put your heart in it, and recommit. Today, change how you view your homemaking and you will see changes. Its not always easy, but He is always there.

Surround yourself with women who are answering the call... Get that motivation and advice you need so you can better fulfill your purpose.

I'm blessed with very few women who help me in this area, and I'm so thankful for their advice alhamdulilah.

He is calling us ... To do this "job" and He wants us to do it in a way that He is pleased with, in a way that He is remembered, and with our hearts.

Ring... Ring...

The Passing Of A Prince

One month later...  If you would have told me, that I would be eventually blogging as a widow, I would have probably said that I couldn't imagine it!

Well here I am, writing as a widow. My husband (may Allah have mercy on him, and grant him jannah ameen ameen) passed away last month, December 20th, 2016, from complications from his condition.  My whole life changed and I am learning to heal and process this tremendous loss with our six children.

I met my husband in 2006 mashaAllah, and as I like to tell people, I started this adventure 10 yrs ago when I met a Prince from Kings County (Brooklyn NYC) married him, and became his princess alhamdulilah. When we first met, I felt like "wow this handsome guy, I cant believe he is even giving me the time of day." Lord knows I am thankful for all the time of our days, our road trips, and adventures.

I think of an old status message I shared on facebook
" I've dedicated ten years of my heart to this loveable adventurous g…

5 Ways To Love Your Husband MORE

I had to blow the dust off the blog tonight, as I only write when I am feeling inspired. SubhanAllah, tonight feels like a good night to share a few thoughts on the blog.
How can you, love your husband more?


1.) Speak words that will uplift his spirit. I remember when I would be feeling nervous, and anxious about some event, and my husband (may Allah have mercy on him, ameen) would say encouraging words, that made me feel like the most confident woman in the world. We have the ability to be that voice of encouragement in our mates lives. What mountains we cannot move, when our spouse speaks life into our being! Through out the day, speak to your mate in a way that will help them be better. 
2.) Put your love into action: Yes you can say "I love you" all day long, but adding to that by doing loving gestures, show and prove what we feel inside. Surprising our spouse by writing a love note, or sending a loving text, adds a little more joy to their days. In a world where there …

5 Ways To Love Yourself MORE

Yep, there I am, jumping on the trampoline in my sisters yard yesterday. As I told a friend, you can't help but smile on a trampoline. I couldn't jump and be angry, or feel sad at the same time. 
Alhamdulilah I felt like reaching for the sky, free, and alive. I haven't felt that way since my husband passed away last month (December 20th, 2016). Life has not been the same. Yesterday I decided to get some fresh air and I felt good. It was nice to step outside for a little bit.
My last post was written on loving your husband's more, which can also be applied to wives. Our time here isn't long, and in losing my husband, I am extra reminded to encourage wives to love their husbands more. That has always been part of my blog's goal, but God is telling me to remind women more, through my own experience.

But in loving your husbands more, do not forget yourself. You are important. Yes, some women need to be reminded that they are important. You have to take care of you…
