Forget me not

Not one time have you been forgotten.
Never has He passed you by. 
He sees you. 
He knows you. 

I’m referring to Papa (God) obviously when I say “He” because He is the only one these truths can apply to. 

I feel like today someone needs to know this.. So I’m choosing to use my blog platform to be able to say that He hasn’t left. 
He is not paying more attention to someone else over you. 

In His word it says, “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands..” (‭Isaiah‬ ‭49‬:‭15-16‬) 

“I will NOT forget you!” 

You my dear, are still seen
You are still heard
You are still known
You are still HIS

If you’re dealing with shame because of something you did or didn’t do, get rid of it! Shame will block your ability to accept His unfailing love and these promises for you. 

It may seem like you’ve been abandoned by all the left and right happenings that’ve popped up recently, but don’t allow yourself to begin to walk by sight.. Walk by faith! 

He hasn’t abandoned you! 

“..For the Lord your God goes with you; He will not leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6) 
Forsake- abandon, leave behind, let alone, neglect, desert. 

He will not leave you nor forsake you. 

He promised this a long time ago.. And still His promise holds true. 
So tell your feelings of abandonment and feeling forgotten the truth of these promises and be free! 

How could He ever forget you
You’re the only you in His world..He WANTS you. The apple of His eye.. 

Cry out to Him if it’s hard. He will weep with you. 

I’ve been in a season where I didn’t “feel” Him or “hear” Him at all. But because of these truths, I knew He was there. I didn’t doubt that once. Was it uncomfortable? Sometimes, but I filled my spirit up with the promise that He’s been with me all along, and He will forever and always be right here

Breathe beautiful. Papa has you in His hands.. I keep hearing Him say, “You’re safe here with me..” 

You CAN trust this. You can trust Him. Hold on lovely, this story isn’t over yet. 

Papa I thank you for never forgetting us. The ones you so willingly sacrificed for, just so we would KNOW these truths and your love for us. You knew what you were getting into.. You knew we would one day deal with the thoughts of abandonment and question our faith and still you chose to do it. Thank you Papa! For trusting the greatness within us to grasp it. Although this side of heaven we may not fully get it all, I thank you for what we do get and what we will continue to receive until we meet you in our forever home. You’re everything. Thank you for never leaving.. I love you. In Jesus name, Amen. 

Loving you,

Comfort shmomfort

Comfort zones are comfortable. I know, it’s super profound right?

Why do we like them? Oh, cause they’re comfy. Most of the time, we women prefer the comfier things in life…such as: the type of mattress we sleep in, comfort foods (mmmm😋), our desire to not wear the heinous bra (but because of not wanting to let it all hangout we keep it on for the majority of our day🙈), or simply the love of lounge around clothes because in reality, being all dolled up hurts sometimes.

We are ABOUT that comfortable life.

But, a life lived comfortably, is no life at all. (I’m not sure if I just made that quote up myself or if I read it somewhere..hmm oh well, it’s good!😄)

The zone full of cushion, safety nets, and all the other reinforcements is of course unexposed to danger. Ultimately making life a piece of cake.

Where’s the risk? Where’s the FAITH? The trust we so claim to have in our Creator to be everything He said He’d be for us? It’s not there as long as comfort is.

Comfort is fear’s offspring.

The reason we stay there is because we are afraid to become “unprotected”, afraid to fall, afraid to get more responsibility (let’s keep it real), afraid the outside is really every bad scenario we have thought up, etc.

As women we tend to want the guarantee. Of course we want to “fly free”, but with the guarantee that we will actually stay in the air.

Well ladies, I have GREAT news for you… There IS a guarantee that should you decide to break out of that comfort zone… You will NOT die, but LIVE. You will NOT fall, you will RISE. You will NOT fail, you will PROSPER!

You: “No way?!”
Me: “WAY.” 👇

Psalm 118:17, “I will not die but live, and proclaim what The Lord has done.”

Psalm 37:24, “Though (s)he may stumble, (s)he will not fall, for The Lord upholds (her) with His hand.”

Psalm 46:5, “God is within HER, she will NOT fall.

Three outstanding Psalms that straight up destroy comfort zones. You’re welcome. 😉

You have the guarantee beautiful, so get rid of your parachute…keep your eyes open… Get that running start and SOAR off that ugly cliff of comfortsville and see what living really feels like.

Whatever you just got provoked to jump into -I’m praying it’s something along the lines of: truly trusting Papa, or risking it all to experience everything you’ve wanted to experience with Him by saying “YES” to Him…and not diving into a relationship lol this ain’t about no boys! 🙅- be all in. No plan B.

Heroines don’t react to the subtle, sweet, yet deceitful sounds of comfort.. They respond to the roar within them, “FLY!”

It’s your turn Ms. Brave… Live out your name. 💪

Papa, I pray every comfort zone gets demolished right now in the name of Jesus! That your peace would overtake the negative “what if” thoughts and your love would drive out fear. I pray the gold found in the psalm scriptures would shine bright in our spiritual vision so much so that it excites our natural one. Living with no plan b because we know you, is the best life ever. In the times of transition or trial in which comfort advertises itself as “fulfilling”, let your word and these ring aloud to remind us you have it all, beginning and end in your hand. You’re the greatest Papa, thank you for all you are for us, with us, and in us. In Jesus name, Amen.

Loving you,

Smiling’s my favorite

I’m sorta sad Thanksgiving came and left too soon..all that food made me have to unbutton my pants to breathe! (I’m serious girls, I think I gained about ten pounds but goodness those candied yams were worth it!! 😋) BUT now it’s onto CHRISTMAS! 😍

I have no idea why it can’t be all holly jolly every other season but there’s just something about this time of year that really puts the sparkle in our eyes. ✨

Anyway, one of my favorite things to do during this time is watch Christmas movies! Ugh I’m a sucker for them. I’ll watch em all. One that gets played often is ELF with Will Farrell. (He nailed it by the way. Greatest elf ever. I’ll watch it a hundred thousand times I don’t care it’ll still be awesome)

I just like to smile, smiling’s my favorite!” -Buddy the Elf
This quote has become part of my speech because well, it truly does provoke a smile. And It also reminds me how powerful it is to do so.

Smile. 😃

Ok now.. Smile BIG. 😁

Your smile is powerful!

I realize I have mentioned the power in laughing before in my post “she laughs” but it’s so important to smile as well.

It even talks about it in:
Proverbs 15:13 “A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.”

And

Proverbs 15:30 “A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones.”

A cheerful face or look = the presence of a smile. 😃

It’s funny because in the first verse it mentions that it starts from the inside first (a happy heart) and then produces the outside (cheerful face)

Then the second verse uses the reverse of it (outside effecting the inside)

So regardless which comes first that smile provokes your insides to be joyful! (Joyful insides I’m sure keep the doctor away.. Proverbs 17:22)

Ok wrapping it up…
My prescription for you:

•Take a smile break at least ten times a day.

•Make a list of things that bring that smile out.. And post pictures of those things up around you.. Or however you want to do it.

It may seem like the cliché post about being “happy go lucky” and you’re probably like “Whoop dee doo Tanisha this isn’t a big profound deal” (Seriously if you said that Im sad. Jk. 😄) but honestly we need it still. Daily.. (If we didn’t we’d all look like buddy the elf.)

Especially this time of year even though there’s Merriness galore, comparison tries to leak in and be a kill joy-Causing you to not smile where you’re at or with what you currently have-(But not on my watch!😉)

Now then beauty, keep your heart young with joy-put that smile on. You never know who’s going to be around who may need it more than you. 😊

Challenge: Give a smile to someone new every day as a countdown to the new year.. And don’t worry about the outcome.. Just do it to do it. Because smiling’s your favorite. 😁

Papa I pray you would bring the smiles out. The big smiles. The full teeth showing smiles. The bonafide, non forced smiles to release heaven into our daily tasks; and to create breakthrough in our own lives. Thank you for creating the smile, such a universal sign of happiness and ultimately love. Most of all thank you for your smile that permanently radiates over us. Love you Papa, in Jesus name Amen!

Loving you,
Tanisha Poni 💜

Ps. Don’t be giving that FLIRTY smile out girl.. Don’t get cray-hay-hayzyy!💁

Pss. Your smile is BEAUTIFUL. I don’t care if someone told you any different. They lied. So chuck that out and smile sweetie. 😘

Happily ever before

I just celebrated my first year anniversary with my husband yesterday (thank you, thank you😊) and during the celebration this blog topic hit me.

I was happy before I got married.
I had already been living in my fairytale before my vow exchange..

You see, before I said “Yes” to Joe (my husband), I said “Yes” to Jesus first. Yes to His unearned gift of LIFE and Yes ultimately to His love.

I never knew Joy, love, hope, peace, courage, strength, humility, confidence, romance, purpose, patience, etc.. Until Jesus.

Trust me ladies I’m not being “Corny Christian” this is the absolute truth in the best way I could describe it..

When you meet someone, initially your reaction is to get to know them right? Right. And then having gotten to know them you desire time, and more time. So you two spend time together. During that time you grow closer in intimacy-heart wise-and then a vulnerable moment arises.. An area he wasn’t allowed to see before but because of growing trust you gave him access.. And it only strengthened your relationship because he has now seen deeper into you. He then reveals a part of himself that you’ve never experienced and it’s so good that you realize you’re in love with him. Love. You’re discovering the ins and outs of one another and finally you decide to surrender your heart to him. Fully committing yourself to a lifetime of faithful, never shaken love. ::Cues bridal entrance music::

That’s EXACTLY how it went with Jesus.
I spent time with Him. Grew closer to Him. Got vulnerable with Him. Found myself in love with Him. Then made the commitment to never look back. To never leave Him. My whole heart was and still is His.

He presented creation around me in ways I never seen before like the butterfly kisses I blogged about previously.. This love story-Jesus loving me-was my fairytale. A TRUE fairytale.

Some of you may be uncomfortable reading this. Some may feel like I am being the corny Christian but that’s just something you’re going to have to get over because this is REAL LOVE.

LOVE always had a face before your “first love” in school, (or wherever you met him..) Before he was even born or thought of, Love had Jesus’ face. And He ALWAYS loved you.

Everything you’ve ever dreamed up in romance was first dreamed up by Him. (Yes.. Even that.)

I grabbed ahold of all this in my single season and held on tight to it. I dove deep. My single season wasn’t dreadful. It was amazing. Because of this, I allowed a LOT of growth to occur then; which has truly done wonders for my marriage. Had this not happened, I’m sure we would be working on a lot more independent issues than being able to focus on US as one.

So yes your “HAPPILY EVER..” starts now. If your mindset isn’t there, do everything you can to get it going. To be able to live happily ever before AND after is a definite blessing.

I’m going to give you a list of things I did in my single season to help jump start you in how to go about it:

I stayed away from romance movies. (You groan now but trust me it helps protect your mind from building up fantasies or expectations that are just not reality. Plus it only came with a stronger lonely feeling than it would without watching these. I LOVE love and romance so it was definitely something I had to grow strength in but it paid off.)

I also protected my ears from what songs I was listening to. (Ok I realize this is starting to look like a bunch of “don’ts” but I’ll get to the “do’s” after.- love songs also build up fantasies.. I mean come on falling in love at a coffee shop?? Sure it’s dreamy but unless your life is really REALLY out there it just doesn’t happen. I wasn’t a stickler about this I would know what I could handle and what I couldn’t and I would switch the song if I started to feel anything outside of secure in my singleness.-I really did like that song though hah-)

I put my phone away.. Deleted numbers that could be tempting. (Girl, you know you can’t use the excuse of, “I just don’t like unknown numbers and need to know who’s calling or texting so I can know what to answer or not..” URT! If you don’t like unknown numbers that’s even better! You won’t answer it anyway. Old flings or boyfriends creepin up even old thoughts of “good” moments can puppet your thumbs into sending the text or call that could be destructive. The mess is too messy to chance it. Trust me again.)

– I filled my spirit up with romance from The Word. (Here comes the “do’s.. Read Song of Solomon- all of it- and have fun dissecting it. I’m sure it’ll last as long as your single season because I’m still dissecting it in my marriage haha! But it truly helped me when I needed to be reassured in my beauty or felt the need for attention.. And this is the reassurance/attention that has no repercussion-it’s perfect.)

– I got my alone time in with Papa. (Enough said. Get with Him, the encounters you have are gold alone. The visions you see, the words of affirmation you hear.. Goodness it’s that good GOOD. Most definitely.)

I made sure my self talk was healthy and encouraging. (There’s power in a woman who radiates confidence and loves herself as she is. Obviously, as women it’s hard to get to a place such as this with the media all around; so I also didn’t look at magazines or was quick to look the other way with posters of altered beauty,etc-I still do this- but building consistency and faith in it gets you far.)

I started discovering ME. My likes, dislikes, things that made me come alive, passions, desires, dreams, wants..etc. (ladies…let’s be honest, men don’t know what women want because majority of the time WE don’t even know what we want! Hah. If we spent time discovering it instead of expecting a man to we would all be happier 😄)

I held onto my hope but I didn’t keep this particular hope my main screen. (Hope is GREAT to have. It’s powerful. But to constantly have the hope of having a significant other or a husband in my view, would’ve ruined my season so much so that I would’ve been paying more attention to the thoughts that hope now came with, and lost sight of building my NOW happily ever. Focusing on the “future hope” more than your “now hope” can be fatal-might cause you to have a desire to skip seasons- Have hope, just don’t let it become your main focus now.)

Phew! That was a mouthful wasn’t it?! Ok now that I can breathe again, I hope these helped you and encouraged you instead of provoking more groans. I honestly did all these. Some I still do in my marriage, but it so helped my perspective and joy in being single.

There were other things I did or didn’t do, but I think it was molded to myself personally.. So ask Papa for help in what to do or not do. The best thing you can be is willing, (only to Jesus in this time hah) to get rid of what you should get rid of to propel you into the woman you WANT to be before marriage, before a man period. Because last time I checked, God and God alone validated my greatness, my beauty, my success, etc. My husband would be a hot mess if I expected him to do that for me. It just isn’t his job.

Ok let’s pray,

Papa, thank you thank you thank you for single seasons. Thank you for every treasure and promise that is to be found along the process of it and for being who these beauties need you to be in this time. I pray that they would be sparked with joy even now, that their perspectives would shift, so their realities can be enjoyable now. I pray they would protect their hearts, eyes, ears and minds. Thank you for loving us more than we will ever be able to comprehend this side of heaven. I also pray you would sway with them in the best dance of their life right now. So they know how to dance in their future marriages. 😉 you’re such a great Papa, thank you. In Jesus name, amen.

I believe in you. I know it’s possible. So get excited! Happily ever before starts today 😊

It doesn’t hurt to ask

You know what’s funny..we roam around in our daily lives with certain areas where there’s trouble and struggle or maybe just a random want we have and we just continue to DEAL with it.

We pray about the big things like “thank you for today” and “I pray so and so gets healed” or “please protect my children” ..

All the other billion things that happen during our 24hrs (or wants) that pop up, go without mention because something tells us, “It’s not big enough to take to God” or “He has too many other things to take care of, why would He want to waste His time on that” 😑

The whole “God is good, all the time” statement may have been used a lot to where it can come off like another famous saying, but it is TRUE!

He is a GOOD Papa! He cares about you!

Let’s use “reality” for a second to drill this in..
How would it look if my father told me when I was little, “Mija, I love you very much.. But don’t come asking me for anything that isn’t an emergency need, or tell me about things unless you’re bleeding. Even then, put your own bandaid on it. I just don’t like to be bothered with your stuff, I have so much more to be worried about. Mmkay?

Uhh…it would look like a CPS case!

My father isn’t like that thank God, but I do know some of us haven’t had the opportunity to have a great dad. And maybe he didn’t do things you needed him to or he said things like that above.. And I’m sorry for that. I’m sorry you felt like you weren’t worthy enough of time or attention.
Honey, sometimes our daddies grow up with the same stuff missing as you did.. Because his own father didn’t give it to him. It’s like: if you needed five dollars, and I didn’t have five dollars, I couldn’t give you five dollars on account that I don’t have it. (Get it?)

It’s like that with our daddies (mommies too) they probably weren’t able to give you those certain things you needed (patience, hugs, words of encouragement, nurturing when we got boo-boos, etc.) because they didn’t receive it when they were little.. They simply don’t know how. 😕

The good news in all this is.. Our Heavenly Papa is NOT like that. Nor would He have ever said that too me. He isn’t neglecting, too busy, or unloving. You can’t even think about your good dad and times that by a billion to think that’s what Papa is like because He’s out of this world! Completely within His own category.. He loves differently!

Not only does He love you, He LIKES you too! That would hint to the fact that He also likes your voice.. Audible or not.. You’re ALWAYS on His radar.. And no one could ever flick you off it. 😉

I’m just saying, you don’t have to silence yourself in prayer and only talk about the “bigger” more “important” things in your life that you’d rather “bother the Lord” with.. He wants to give you the desires of your heart! (Yes..every one..andddd you never bother Him!)

For example:
The hard working wife/mother who labors long hours in the day to take care of her household and her family.. You go ahead.. And pray for those shoes girl! It’s not too little or too shallow to ask for.. You want them? Ask Papa for the money! You DESERVE it.

Nothing is too little.. He cares about every part of you. Because He delights in your existence-Psalm 37:23 (NLT)-Period.

(Of course not every desire is material,
But every desire IS worth communicating to Him..)

In Matthew 7:7 it says, “Ask, and it will be given to you seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”
It didn’t say, “Ask for only the important urgencies in your life, and it will be given to you…”

It just said, “ASK

Remember:
Wants are not needs. He isn’t limited or surviving paycheck to paycheck.. He is ABUNDANCE. Needs of course should be communicated, but your WANTS are important to Him too.

So what do you want?
What. do. you. W A N T?
(Sky is not the limit..to a limitless God)

Shush the discouraging thoughts trying to cover your mouth and just Ask. And have faith that He will give it to you. 😊

Papa I thank you for just how Great you are.. The fullness of your spirit and your generous heart. You loved us so much you GAVE.. I pray we would be more aware of that part of you and not to be timid in asking you for the things us as women desire.. Teach us how to pray and ask like a DAUGHTER.. Knowing you’re such a good good Papa. In Jesus Name, amen.

Loving you,

BEE Yourself

My favorite Disney movie is Aladdin.
(I will refrain from the urges of my love for Disney and get to the point of this fact drop..)

I got the title of this post from the scene where Aladdin is trying to impress Princess Jasmine, and Genie is a bee whispering things in his ear to say to her. When that doesn’t go well, Genie makes his inspiring exit with the quote, “..But remember, BEEE yourself.” This said scene also provoked my desire to write this piece..😊

Before I started this whole blog I was hesitant because I thought, “Tons of empowering lady blogs (hah sounds like lady bugs😄🐞) already exist… So why should I try to make one?

You’re probably like, “GASP! Tanisha has thoughts like this pop up?!” Uhhh..YEA GIRL! Lol I’m not an exception to that junk. It happens.. but I choke that lie out with the truth like so:

Yes, there may be tons of those lady blogs BUT! There is NO ONE that will blog like you..because you are the only you.”

And.. that’s all she wrote. (Obviously I’m going to write more but you know what I mean😉)

Ok back on topic.. I pursued writing this blog because I knew no one was going to write EXACTLY what I’m writing, in the way I’m choosing to write it. And just like every other woman composing a blog, I have something to say. I didn’t care if women had done it before, nor about how it was successfully done. Because, there is no other Tanisha Poni I am up against, it’s just ME.

Isn’t that incredible? I’m the only me, and YOU are the ONLY you this world will EVER see.

You are completely unique. I get bothered because that word should be given more credit, and carry weight. These days it’s become cliché or a nice “repost worthy” quote. (😑)

Oh, but it’s meaning!!

Unique /yōō’nēk/ (adj) : being the only one of its kind. Unlike anything else.

Some of the synonyms are: distinct, individual, special, idiosyncratic (cause big words are awesome every now and then 😄) unrepeatable, exclusive, etc.

Now that I’ve given the English lesson for the day,
Chew on it.

You ::insert your name here:: are a ONCE in a lifetime ::insert your name here too:: !

Even if you’re a twin, you are STILL you.

Darling, this world couldn’t grow to it’s potential without your touch. I mean, that is why you have a different finger print than everyone else.. because no one, can touch the world quite like you.
(D’aww I know, cheesy, but you smiled!)

In Matthew 10:30 it says,
But even the hairs of your head are all numbered.

I realize I could’ve quoted the famous scriptures about being fearfully and wonderfully made, or about being knit in your mother’s womb, but you girls could be like, “Well, EVERYONE was created like that.. So, it’s not distinct.” (😐)

BUT!

We are women. And we do know much about our lovely locks. As well as, knowing all of our hair textures, lengths, thickness, etc, etc. are NOT the same. Hence, my chosen scripture of proof in your uniqueness. 💁 BAM!

The hairs on your head are numbered. He even knows about the ones that fall out in the shower while rinsing the conditioner out, and then them being pinned on the shower wall to hopefully be wiped away right AFTER your shower. 😂 (Lol, seriously beauts.. You better clean that!)
And I’m sure those hairs were accounted for, before you even had hair to count..

Let me wrap it up:

1. Pursue YOU.

Wanna paint? Paint.
Wanna sing? Sing.
Wanna be a fashion designer? Design away.
Wanna be a nurse? Nurse it up.

Don’t disqualify yourself because of comparison to the Georgia O’Keeffe, Whitney Houston, Coco Chanel, and Florence Nightingale of the world.. (Obviously these women made history, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anymore room in the “women’s hall of fame!”) You were created to be beautiful like YOU, not beautiful like them.

2. Release YOU in this life. Stop worrying about what’s “in” or “out”, if so and so will still like you if you come out and say you really didn’t like what they liked, or what new detox everyone is doing and secretly whining through.. Just stop it! (I don’t care if people squirm in their skin because your differences are out of their comfort zone..) don’t copy anyone else’s “you” it’s not good enough.

3. Be You! Do You! Live You!

This world is waiting gem.. 😌

Loving you,

Chin up buttercup

Beauties, we have entered into my favorite season of the year.. FALL! 😍

ONE of my favorite things (because there are plenty) about this season is the CHANGE that takes place.. The leaves don’t just transform in color, they fall. And the trees become bare, to prepare for new blossoms and growth to take place.

To some, leafless trees are ugly or scary because they’ve lost their color (and are usually in scary movie scenes to add to their discredit😑), but to me they’re most intriguing because I’m passionate about transformation and the process in the trees’ endurance during the cold season.

(Ok this isn’t a tree hugging post I assure you but I’m not knocking the idea! 😄 )

You and I are given the same exact opportunity to be these autumn trees. We get to allow certain things to transform within us and things to fall off to leave a place for new things to take root. (Healthy and greater things of course)

The problem with all this greatness is that many times these transformations look like trials. They may not feel good, might make you rethink your faith and not appear to mean well, but the good news is.. they can be celebrated!

I feel as though some of you have been going through a “trying” season where things left and right keep giving you a 1,2 combination (that’s some boxing lingo for ya) and you feel as though you’ve either missed it and made a bad decision, you’re losing hope, your joy is sapped, and you could probably have a major crying outburst at any given moment.. Well this is for you:

CHIN UP BUTTERCUP!

Have a giggle time out.. And then marvel at this gem of a scripture,

“Dear brothers and SISTERS, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect (full grown) and complete (faultless), needing (lacking) nothing.” James 1:2-4

Did you read that?! This trying season is giving your endurance a chance to grow (just like leaves falling off the tree.. 🍃🍂) and the great promise in this truth is the fact that your endurance has potential to fully develop ANNNND you will be full grown needing NOTHING! 😍 That’s so encouraging! (So no more eating ice cream with a shovel, or chocolate for that matter unless it’s for fun of course😜)

Guess what? …

You’re EXACTLY where you need to be.
Trust Papa at His word, and take a moment to reflect
on all these left and right blows and allow yourself to put on Joy glasses to accept them as such.

Be honored beautiful one, He wants to take you deeper! 🙌

Let me wrap it up by praying for you,

Papa, I thank you for new seasons, new depth, and transformation. I thank you that in the so called troublesome times we get to have not only joy, but GREAT joy because it is propelling our spirit of endurance to grow and strengthen. Thank you for the clarity on being right where we are supposed to be and the peace that truth releases. I pray we would be full grown and lacking nothing at the end of it all, having enjoyed our process of blossoming with you. In Jesus’s name, Amen!

😊

Loving you,

Tanisha Poni 💜
