Spring Break 2016/ African American Guide to Savannah

African American Guide to Savannah

My daughter  and I are very passionate about our African American History. Savannah is the perfect city to explore our Southern African American Roots because Savannah is home to several Monuments and Tours dedicated to African American History.

One of my favorite Tours was the First African Baptist Church (Stop # 2 on the Old Town Savannah Trolley Tours).  Where we paid a small Tour Fee of $7.00 for adults ($6.00 for Students)  . If you watch The Real House Wives of Atlanta this is the church on a past Season that the ladies visited and Portia Stewart questioned was a real live train ran under the church LOL and SMH!  This church was the very first church built by and established by Slaves in the United States of America.  This church played a very important part in the ” Underground Railroad, as they would provide a safe haven for slaves looking to get to the river to head north and obtain there freedom!  Our Guides walk you through the church showing you the original pews built by the slaves,  allowing you to see the floors that the slaves hid under and used to crawled their way to freedom, and giving you the history of the churches founders and Pastors. This church was also home to the very first Credit Union for African American Parishioners and became the home to many Civil Rights Meetings.  The Church still holds regular Sunday Services at 9am and 10am. The churches current Pastor is Thurmond Neil Tillman.  I highly recommend this tour.  It left my daughter in I in tears.  BTW:  They no longer allow pictures in the inside of the Church due to past Visitors taking pictures and selling them on post cards

31 Promises to Speak Over Your Life! (Day 1 Declaration)

Hey Dolls and Divas!

My great Friend Tarrah, who I consider a Sister recently advised me about a book that she read called ” I Declare” by Joel Osteen.  Since I trust Tarrah with my whole heart and Soul, I decided to purchase the book and read it for myself.  Wow!  I am so very glad that I did!  I would advise everyone to go out and get this book!  I am already on Day 7 but every Soul Search Sunday I will share with you a Declaration…starting with Day 1…..Starting today!

So this book has an introduction before the Day 1 Declaration, which had some very powerful and important points here are just a few of my Favorites:

I will declare, “I’m blessed.  I’m strong. I’m healthy. This will be a great year.”  When you do that, you are blessing your future.

You give life to your faith by what you say. All through the day we should go around saying, “I have the favor of God.  I can do all things through Christ. I am blessed. I’m strong.  I’m healthy.” When you do that you just blessed your life.

Instead of speaking Negativity in and over your life, when you wake up in the morning say out loud ” This is going to be a great day. I’m Excited about my future. Something good is about to happen to me.”

Even when things don’t look to be going your way, speak Victory in your life! ” I know when one door closes God will open up another door.  What was meant for my harm, God will use to my advantage. I’m not only coming out, I will come out better off than I was before.  I’m blessed. I’m healthy, I’m strong. I’m valuable. I’m talented. I have a bright future.”

Sick in your body? Speak good health over your life! “I am getting better and better, every day in every way. I’m improving. My health is coming back.”

Speak who You are in God!  Every morning say ” Good morning you beautiful thing.  (or) Good morning you handsome thing.  Good morning, you blessed prosperous, successful, strong, talented, creative, confident, secure, disciplined, focused, highly favored child of the Most God” Get it in the inside!  Speak faith over your future!

A few scriptures that the book referenced were: Joel 3:10….Proverbs 6:2….Proverbs 18:21(the power of life and death are in the tongue)

I Declare

Hello world!

Welcome to Atlanta Go 2 Rose!

I’m Rose!  Most of my Friends refer to me as the GO TO GIRL!  Why is that?  You might ask.  Well here goes….

I Have always been a Girl with Champagne Taste. However, being a Single Mother with real life bills and situations causes my budget to usually float somewhere between tap water and Pink Moscato. Therefore, I am a very crafty Target Shopping Frugalista who also loves All things Neiman Marcus!!

I am a self proclaimed Greedy Girlso I love to try different / unique foods,  Which means that, you can find me anywhere from the Sundial in Atlanta to Ms. Willie Mae’s Scotch House in New Orleans! BTW I love concocting quick and easy recipes and you are more than welcome to be my GuineaPig  Girl.  I would love for you to try them out, love them, and share them with the world!

I love to travel and  I love even more to share my fun with Family and Friends. And don’t worry I’m always giving tips on where to stay and what to do!

I am super nosy or as I like to say “Know-See” and my Daughter  always refers to me as the friend of the Famous friend, because I always know someone who knows some Celebrity…So I know a little Celebrity Gossip  -wink,wink-

I am so grateful to be able to share my journeys, my travels, and my life with you.  Hope you enjoy the ride and pick up a few beauty tips on the way!!!

MAY GOD BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY!
