After dating for two and a half years, he finally popped the question and we are engaged!
But I have a question... Who should manage our finances?
Before we started dating I bought a house and he lives in an apartment. We are planning to move into my house and split the bills but he says that he should be in charge of managing our money because he is the man of the house. I think I agree but since we have been dating, I have noticed that he spends a lot of his money and doesn't always pay his bills on time. I'm a saver because my parents always told me to be prepared for a rainy day but he thinks that we should travel more and enjoy our money while we have it. That makes me a little uncomfortable but I don't want to create a problem in the relationship about money. I'm scared that he won't pay the bills on time and I don't want to mess up my credit.
A few weeks ago, my son and I attended a church lock-in and one of the Praise and Worship participants (Rod Jackson) gave me a copy of his CD, "Great Boldness". On the way home I put it in the CD player and it hasn't been ejected yet. My son loves the music because it has the same beats as a lot of the popular artists and I love it because the messaging is all about Christ. I know that there are other artists on the market with similar music but I love the fact that we know Rod and he is quickly becoming a family friend. He is more committed to his ministry of mentoring young boys than producing music. Music is something that he loves and uses as a tool to connect with a generation torn between the words of the world and the Word of God.
An Economic Empowerment Doctrine for African-Americans
In May, I began a series on the "Up 4 Discussion" blog site that will continue through the summer. Our topic... a response to the controversial "Lynch Letters". Although some may debate the validity of these letters, the effects within the African-American community are evident.
This series is meant to create a candid discussion about the state of the African-American community as a result of slavery. We can not go back and change the past however, it is imperative that we recognize the disproportionate economic status of our community and begin addressing real solutions.
Most of the time, I take the easy way out when making spaghetti but on the day of my son's graduation from kindergarten; he requested meatballs with his spaghetti. He could have asked for a million other things but meatballs... What kind of mom would I be not to oblige that request... This recipe has been lingering around for a while and I finally got to use it. He gave it two thumbs up so I hope you will enjoy it also.
