Wayside Baptist Church 70th Anniversary

Calling for Art Supplies! Calling for Art Supplies! Wayside Baptist Church is having its 70th Anniversary in August. Yours truly is heading up the Art Show Committee.

This Art Show will Celebrate the Creativity of our Children. Therefore I’m seeking Art Supplies for children who range from 3 to 11 years old. We will be constructing drawings sketches, dioramas and Swag Bags. My goal is to also have a Raffle so our efforts will be self supported. And of course our kids need snacks. Must feed those youthful Creative minds.

Wayside Baptist Church does so much for the Brooklyn Community in terms of Free Food Giveaways on Wednesdays in conjunction with St. John’s Bread & Life. Wayside also distributes Free clothing on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Wayside Baptist Church


I’ve been attending Wayside Baptist Church off and on for about four years.  I always enjoyed the service and felt at home with friendly people and great teaching.

Now that I’m Retired I was ready to make a more permanent connection so during Altar Call I went up to join Wayside. More than just joining. I am now part of the Wayside Baptist Church family. As a single person with only my brother Stephen whom I only see a few times a year I need to be part of support system. 

By joining Wayside Baptist Church and attending Sunday services on a regular basis and Bible Study this will help me in my battle against depression, anxiety and panic attacks. 

I made up my mind that I could either sit at home and wallow in sadness, depression and negative thoughts or I could get up off my butt Sunday morning, eat breakfast, take my shower and walk the few blocks to the church. 

Better to be in the House of the Lord than to be home overthinking and projecting into the future.  I was brought up and raised in the Baptist Church so pretty much wherever I have lived whether Queens or Brooklyn that’s where I felt most comfortable.  When Pastor Hamatheite made the Altar Call I literally ran to the front.  That’s how much I need healing and Restoration in my Life.  I was Welcomed with open arms.  Stephen has me but as a Caregiver, as a Single Woman I need someone, somewhere I can go. 

Retiring was only part of the answer.  I realized that I can’t do this on my own.  I’m not strong.  So I Rededicate my Life to Jesus.

God knew this was the Sunday for me.  When one of the church secretaries had written down my name to introduce me Pastor Hamatheite knew me from my Twitter feed. Specifically my photo tweets of Wayside Baptist church.

Truly Lord I Need you Now. I Need you now Lord Right Away. Lord I need you to Restore Me.  Lord Jesus I Need the Victory.




I Look to You Lord!

Next Sunday begins my New Members Classes and I’m really excited to begin!

Sylvester vs. The Palm Fronds


Sylvester vs. The Palm Fronds

Happy and Blessed Palm Sunday







I don’t think that the Palm fronds are winning!  For 13 Years on every Palm Sunday this is what Sylvester does to my Palm Fronds! I have no idea why he gets so excited about Palm Sunday or rather the Palm Fronds!



I Wonder if Jesus had kitties attacking the Palm Fronds as he entered Jerusalem?  Hopefully those Biblical cats were more respectful of Jesus than Sylvester!  On the other hand I’m sure that Jesus gets loads of laughs as he watches Sylvester pounce on the Palm Fronds!  Crazy Cat!























Matthew 21:1-11 New International Version (NIV)

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King

21 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.”

This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:

“Say to Daughter Zion,
    ‘See, your king comes to you,
gentle and riding on a donkey,
    and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”[a]

The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,

“Hosanna[b] to the Son of David!”

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”[c]

“Hosanna[d] in the highest heaven!”

10 When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”

11 The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”

What is your favorite outdoor activity?

Walking and taking photos.

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?

Since I can no longer drive my only choice is to be a passenger

If you could have three wishes granted for you alone, what would they be?
