Hey Family!!!

I know its been a minute since I’ve written.. my numbers are popping off the chain… even when Cree is away. LOL I love that.

So much is happening so fast….  I have shared much about what’s been going on with me in the last 2 years in my private FACEBOOK group. Me moving to Atlanta, not getting the apartment I wanted or the job I interviewed for, coming back home to Detroit. Having to live with my daughter for 3 months, moving into an apartment that I didn’t want to move in, working a part time job barely making ends meet. Having spiders bite me, losing my job a day before Thanksgiving, going BACK to Walmart for 4 days, while they try to pay me $7.80.. so I quit. From my van being stolen out of my parking lot of my apartment, to applying for Medicaid and Food Stamps. I shared my story and my pain to a selected 103. Now God said its the turn a round… When I tell you… what GOD HAS DONE FOR MEEEEE… I WOULD GLADLY REDO THOSE LAST 2 YEARS OVER AGAIN TO BE HERE….. BECAUSE I HAVE LANDED THE JOB OF MY DREAMS/CAREER.. INTERVIEWED.. RETURN INTERVIEW.. AND ORIENTATION IS NEXT WEEK!!! I AM OVER JOYED.. THANK YOU JESUS.. THANK YOU LORD!!!! Then to top that off. They have done a complete make over of my building. New fitness center, brand new store, business area with many computers… and once your lease is up.. you HAVE  to move out into a brand new apartment. And guess what? My lease is up next month.. I’m so excited. Living in the heart of Downtown Detroit. Wow, wow.. Hahaha… and I told God.. I didn’t want to move here. LOL He knew what my future held. 

But what amazes me… is that someone can know all that you’ve BEEN through.. know the tears you’ve cried, the pain you suffered, the stories you told… and still they’re not AS happy as they can be for you.. Because they’re afraid that you may go higher than them. But you know what? I DON’T GIVE A DAYUM!!!! I’VE BEEN THROUGH TOO MUCH… TO LOOK OVER AT TWISTED FACES BECAUSE OF WHAT GOD IS DOING IN MY LIFE… QUIET -SILENT- PAUSES….Been looking over at people scared to fly.. I’m outta here. Lord.. I want ALL YOU HAVE FOR ME!!! ALL!



While you still have life …….From the Desk of Cree



Why is it that when someone has to go to court for an offense, they hire a lawyer to get them off…. but they say.. “Cant nobody JUDGE ME BUT GOD”? When THEY KNOW they’ill stand before a HUMAN/PERSON/SINNER = JUDGE… TO BE JUDGED?

But Jesus is saying I AM YOUR LAWYER… let me get you off before you GET IN FRONT OF THE HIGHEST JUDGE… GOD

Why people don’t have the desire to settle NOW and confess their wrongs .. WHILE THEY STILL HAVE LIFE?

You don’t have to admit it to the world…. ONLY TO HIM.

Out of My Comfort Zone Crees Blog Entry

2011-11-06 16-17-50.514
Sitting here thinking about my life. Who would have guessed it would be this way? No…… not that its bad. What I mean is……God knows me… so well…. LOL He knew if someone had asked me the end of 2012, would I have moved out of my 4 bedroom brick home for the life I have now? My answer would be NO. Never in a million years.
See…. that’s the beauty in God.
He knew that if I had a peek into my NOW future, that I would have stayed in my comfort zone. He knew it. He knew it. He knew it. He knew it. He knew it. He knew it.
I have “narrow down” my closet of friendships that does not fit me at this time in my life. I have realized that I have changed in my way of thinking, and looking at things. God is moving me forward and preparing me for something GREAT. I feel it. I know it. I’m being prepared for GREATNESS. I’ve been tried in every arena this last year and a half. If I think about it too hard.. I’ll either cry or FLEX my muscles. LOL God has really moved me COMPLETLY out of my comfort zone. I cannot go back to life as I once knew it. I can never get so comfortable that its hard to “move” again. I am officially on the move. I am no longer doing things LaCreasea’s way. I am no longer in charge. God has made that CLEAR to me. All I can do right now… is throw my hands up and surrender. And as “tired” as I am fighting…. I GLADLY SURRENDER.         *smiling*
For a woman such as myself… who has always been in charge… this is really… I MEAN REALLY a humble beginning. I have totally surrendered myself to the fact where I am blindfolded, walking with a cane, and God holding my right arm. I can’t even explain this like I want to… some will get it. God has shown me that everything I have asked for he gave to me. Jobs, homes, my one and only daughter, the best friends, the best parents, the best sisters and brother. I’ve never been without.
God has truly been good to me. I can never Thank him enough for sending someone special into my life. This person has told me time and time again these things that’s going on right now. Um um um… smh.. I didn’t get any of it then.  But I get it now. Still learning.
Be Blessed

Women & Relationships *2* Crees Blog Entry


I had to have been around 15 when I read this from the Bible.


2 Timothy 3:6

New King James Version (NKJV)

6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts,

I was horrified that one day this could be me. I remember thinking…. God please don’t let me seem gullible to a man where he comes into my life/home and make this Scripture true for ME. Still till this day… I believe with all my heart this is the reason why I NEVER let a man move in with me. Not only that but I never lived with him either. Its bad enough I’ve had my share of “clowns” without living together. And I will say this, women in these types of relationships are breaking up with these men….. after having their babies. That’s when low self esteem comes in, and the woe as me syndromes. Women we’ve got to pay more attention.

This can’t keep working. When it comes to these types of conversations and my friends come to me for advice. IM BRUTAL….. with LOVE. I am Zero Tolerance for this type of relationship behavior. MY advice to this women is this

  • find something about YOURSELF that you LOVE and ADMIRE

  • find out what it is that you like to do , that brings out your personality

I love and enjoy quiet time near The River. I have to make that kind of time for myself. Being near water for me brings a peace and calm…. I’ve never known. Make sure that you PUT THIS TIME ASIDE. It helps me to see life clearer, and the people that’s in it. What brings out my personality is… making small talk with strangers. I enjoy talking to people who are different than myself. They interest me, and I can always learn something new.

The more you get to know YOURSELF…. when “The One” does come along, he will appreciate you more for being YOUR OWN PERSON, not someone who needs HIM to come and “complete” you.

I know its hard being single…. but be a WOMAN who refuse to deal with any and everything, for the sake of “having a man”. And I noticed the SAME WOMEN.. who chose these types of men, are the first ones who will say…. my momma aint trying to help me, my friends aint there for me, don’t nobody care about how I get from A to B. Wont nobody come and pick me up. And I’ll say to them… YOU’RE REALLY MAD AT YOUR BOYFRIEND…because he’s not doing his job by providing a way for you to do those things…… HOW DARE YOU TURN THIS ON YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS!!! These type of women will blame all the names in their cell phones, before they’ll ADMIT… they made a wrong choice in their relationship.

Its okay to live alone, or with your children. Date a man for dear life if you have too. Stop be so submissive to the first man who tells you….. your hair is pretty. Know your own hair is pretty FIRST…. then let him put his AMEN with it. Compliments you’re hearing for the first time from a man… YOU MUST HAVE NEVER TOLD YOURSELF FIRST. So yes… of course it sounds good and special. Get to know YOU. A person is willing to help a single mother faster than they would a woman who has a NO GOOD MAN , sitting on her couch…… PLANT MANAGING A REMOTE CONTROL



Don’t wait around for other people to be happy for you. Any happiness you get you’ve got to make yourself. –Alice Walker

Life Lesson………….. Crees Blog Entry

2011-11-06 16-19-41.856
*Me driving in the video one Summer *  Without going into details.. For the last year and a half… I have been though a lot. Mainly with life changes nothing concerning my health, just life changing things to get me out of my comfort zone. My family is fine,  and my daughter. It was ME… who needed to learn the LIFE LESSON.
I see things from a different eye. I’m not as sensitive. I feel so strong and so BOSSED UP. Where ever God is taking me… I know for a fact… that I have to be a Strong Woman of God. I am so strong, and so not into the mess and small talk. I am really proud of myself. I am really strong.
I’m so sick of Whining Wimpy Women… attention needing to be on them Women. I’m not dealing with a lot of stuff no more. I’m just NOT!! I’m not putting ANY ENERGY TO ANYONE OR ANYTHING that takes me out of my square.
So……. with that said…… Thank you Jesus for where you are taking me. Thank you for the Life Lesson and the Experience. Its been a bumpy ride…. but you know ME…. I DON’T/WON’T GIVE UP. 🙂

Offended turned Correction………..Crees Blog Entry

skort dress

I remember when I first started going to my Church, Second Ebenezer. I would sit in the back because I was new and didn’t want to be seen or heard. I never imagined myself sitting in the front rows, to me it seemed as if you were there longer…. that was YOUR spot. At my Church you could “come as you are” and that was one of the main reasons for me joining at that time in my life. I didn’t have a wide selection of dress clothes, and the little I had, I could mix them up with dress pants, and jeans.


As time went on I became comfortable, and started sitting in the first 5 rows every Sunday. One day I wore a dressy skort. It was my favorite outfit. But one of the older ladies of the church came over to me and placed a lap scarf over my legs with a smile, and walked away. I WAS SO OFFENDED. Not to mention EMBARRASSED. In order for her to come over to place the scarf over MY leg, SHE must have felt that my skort was too short. Boy was I on fire in that service.


After service, I never mentioned it, I just went home. But it stayed on my mind. I couldn’t shake the feeling that she did that. I knew that if I called and told several of my friends what had happened, they would tell me that she was out of order, that she was wrong, that I shouldn’t go back there again, that I should have confronted her about it. But I’m not the type of person who will call my Sisters or Friends and say… “Let me tell you what this lady did to me “. I go to God… all the time. Because what I found out in doing that is…..friends will tell me what seem right to THEM. Maybe a few of them would ask to see the skort, and say…. yeah maybe that is too short. We tend to ask people just to hear “their opinion” when in reality, our mind is already made it that we were “offended”. There’s nothing else to be said, nothing to be discussed. I felt offended…. and that’s final.


It stayed on my MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIND…. yes it did. Every time I went to Church and saw that woman… it was on my mind. I never got an answer from God at that time when I felt that way. But he surely reminded me of it when it was my time to “get it”. As time went on ( been there for 20 years now) I started to build my wardrobe. For some reason I didn’t want to wear jeans any more. My mentality had changed in the way I dressed. I was very conscience of the way this woman of God carried herself. I cared about the way I dressed in the house of the Lord. I knew better, and I did better. I would see women coming in church with their cleavage showing, with short dresses and skirts. And I remember thinking…. wow.. people come to the house of the Lord…. any old kinda way. THEN, God bought back to MY remembrance, of when I was wearing my short skort…. I didn’t think it was too short. But as you leave the MILK… and start eating solid food… you see things totally different than you did before. God had answered my question. I had every reason to be offended… when I didn’t know any better. When I knew better, and dressed better, and respected the way I felt about myself….. I understood. That lady wasn’t trying to hurt my feelings or offend me ….. she helped me. I would never in my life wear that skort again. Never ever. It was so short. I wouldn’t even wear it outside. I’m not a person who care if someone likes my shoes or boots. My clothes or anything that I wear. BUT I DO CARE if someone says… your dress, skirt or skort is too short. As a woman of God.. that would be something , that I TAKE CARE OF ON THE SPOT … EVEN IF I FELT DIFFERENTLY. I don’t want men staring at me, or coming on to me because of the way I dress. I don’t want my breast hanging out, or cleavage showing. I don’t want my behind showing, and I want to be covered up.


What I learned in this Life Lesson that I’ll never forget is that… there are some things in the house of the Lord that YOU JUST DONT DO when you know better. IF……. you know better. Ask God to show you if you’re wrong about being “offended”. I was use to dressing the way ” I wanted” and felt that I was in the house of the Lord. I came to hear the word not to be judged. No one had any BUSINESS to correct the way I dressed.


Seasoned Christians know better. Babes in Christ….. will have to learn.

New Living Translation 1 Corinthians 3:2
I had to feed you with milk, not with solid food, because you weren’t ready for anything stronger. And you still aren’t ready,
