I attended my first ever, Vision Board Social, on 12/29, hosted by none other than A'Keta Vasser. The event actually happened to be her first as a host, but you would have never known it. Upon arriving at the house, it was decorated in purple and silver (the colors signified royalty) and handwritten inspirational quotes. Just looking at the set-up upon entering the door let me know that the Holy Spirit was already present.
Meshia Davis (a dear friend of A'Keta) is the one that actually helped bring A'Keta's vision together. I continually let the woman know that her vision board should start and end with putting together events for others because she is a natural at it.
The event started with introductions, prayer, testimonies, and instructions on creating a vision board for yourself. Now I just want to say that in doing this...I had to think long and hard about what I would even put on this vision board. I mean, I know the things that God has spoken concerning my life, but I just had no idea how I could grab a bunch of magazines and find what I needed to express that. Yet once we got started it just came together.
As A'Keta began to tell us what made her decide to have this social, things really began to come together about what I hoped to see manifest in 2013. See for me, I know that God has his timing for everything, so I don't want to get ahead of Him, I simply want to make sure I do my part. Take a glimpse at my vision board.
The first thing I put on my vision board was: "It's worth the wait." I really believe that! I am one that has taken the time to really study the bible concerning marriage, sex before marriage (the consequences), and just understanding what God created when He created marriage. It's meaning, and all the aspects of it. So as you can see on my vision board, a lot of the things cater to that.
I met quite a few people at the event, one was a young lady name Dominique Davis. After sharing her very powerful testimony, Dominique told us about the organizations she has created/part of...like Models for Jesus Christ, and Thrifty Threads. Be sure to click the link for more info on her organizations. At the young age of 26, just seeing her so hungry for God, it's just amazing.
I also met a young lady by the name of Jaspin Smith. Now listening to her just shed so much light on how as women we can not only we be judgemental (with assumptions) but also, we must take the time to get to know one another. A lot of time when we see beautiful women, we just assume they have no problems in the world..(ie..Halle Berry), but we never take the time to see what they may truly be going through. Well this young lady has taken the time to use her gift in a great and positive way, by creating #TheBeautyMovement. This movement caters to helping young people reach their full potential. To give them the opportunity to look with in and see the greatness that lies within. Check out these nice t-shirts she's using as a promotional tool to get the word out. Jaspin is currently putting her website together...so stay tuned on how to get one of these fabulous tee's. And please take a moment to talk to a young person today to see what's really going on in their heart.
All in all, this was one of the best experiences I have had. To be around all of these women of God, with a clear cut vision for their lives that simply goes along with the word God has spoken over their lives. I can't wait till we do this again, so we can all rejoice over the things that have manifested.
