Inked Designs by Elayna

IMG_1078I may have mentioned once or twice ūüėÄ that my oldest daughter is a Graphic Designer and owns her own company.¬† Her company, Inked Designs, was at Washington Adventist University, displaying her art in honor of Black History Month!!

God has been so faithful! He entrusted Elayna, my miracle child, to me and now as a beautiful young woman, she is operating in her anointing. I declare and decree that all that are touched by her gift will sense the presence of the Holy Spirit!

Organizing Tip: Re-purpose Old Calendars

Today, we are going to talk a little about your collection of old calendars! ¬†In most, if not all cases, we have kept our old calendars for the pictures. ¬†So today, I’d like to suggest that instead of stashing them away in the desk drawers, in a box in the closet or in the plastic bin (amongst many others) in the basement….

Why not re-purpose them??

my oldest daughter is my miracle….

… BABY!!!!! ¬† ¬†Here is my story…. When we first got married, my husband wanted six (6) children, why I have no idea, maybe because he was one of five, I don’t know. ¬†But let me continue.

During the first three years of our marriage, I had three (3) miscarriages. ¬†Now don’t lose it, the Lord has allowed me to share my story. ¬†God always has a purpose for us in our pain, to not only help ourselves but to help others. ¬†But let me continue.

After waiting two years, you can just imagine how we felt when I found out that I was pregnant with my oldest daughter. ¬†But let’s fast forward to the miracle…. when it was time to deliver my baby, she was breech! ¬†After 7 months of supposed bed rest¬†(when I wasn’t going downtown to get a fried chicken dinner with collard greens & yams, oh wait…)¬†she was breech, so I had to have a cesarean. ¬†But guess what? ¬†… when they pulled her out, the umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck three times. ¬†Just think if I had delivered her naturally….

A MIRACLE!!!!!  

Another interesting thought…. if all babies had survived, we would have¬†6 children, but think about this, if we had already had 4, we may have messed up God’s plan and my daughter may not have arrived at her appointed time… ¬†at the time that God had ordained. ¬† WOW!

Now having entered the world healthy, my daughter has excelled in all facets of her life ever since.

  • In the 95 percentile on the child development chart. ¬†Her 6’8″ daddy may have had something to do with that.
  • She skipped the first grade, thus graduating from high school at 17 in the¬†Top 5% of her class.
  • Graduated college at 20, Magna Cum Laude
  • Now at 23, she has started her own Graphic Design Company, INKED DESIGNS.

Although throughout my life, most times I did not understand why things happened. ¬†Now looking back, I have always been truly blessed, even when I didn’t know it. ¬†God’s Favor….

My Miracle Baby… and an absolutely beautiful young lady!

E, I am so very proud of you!  Love, Mom
