Showers of Blessings

*cue the choir y’all* There shall be showers of blessing: This is the promise of love; There shall be seasons refreshing, Sent from the Savior above. Refrain Showers of blessing, Showers of blessing we need: Mercy drops round us are falling, But for the showers we plead. There shall be showers of blessing, Precious reviving again; Over the hills and the valleys, Sound of abundance of rain. Refrain There shall be showers of blessing; Send them upon us, O Lord; Grant to us now a refreshing, Come, and now honor Thy Word. Refrain There shall be showers of blessing: Oh, that today they might fall, Now as to God we’re confessing, Now as on Jesus we call! Refrain There shall be showers of blessing, If we but trust and obey; There shall be seasons refreshing, If we let God have His way. Refrain

Good day all! I found myself singing this song a couple days ago. I may not attend church regularly…um, ahem…I may not attend church at all but I was raised a Seventh Day Adventist and I was at church every Saturday from 9:15am, home for lunch and back for AY (Adventist Youth)/evening services till sundown. I was feeling immensely blessed the moment this song came over me. I was at work and the thoughts that were racing through my mind had me on a gratitude high. The feeling almost knocked me right over. After running to Nikole’s desk and sharing my high I sat in my seat shaking my head and smiling at what I knew but had temporarily forgotten. Let me tell you what happened. It’s not a long story so I won’t be long, I promise. As you all know Ryan is my right and left hands and feet man. He helped me create this beautiful site and he created my lovely business site (www.shysenergyhealingcorner.com). When I say help I mean I provide the info and he does all the work and I sit on the phone and say yay or nay. LOL! Anyway I was thinking I need a logo for my little mini business that I know will bloom and boom in the years to come. I was in love with the one on my business card that was a template from Vista Print and I couldn’t find it anywhere. I mentioned my plight and couple hours later Ryan found something similar (the colors were interchanged). I was so excited! It wasn’t copyrighted so we used it for the time being. Then I decided I wanted a T-shirt with my company name on it so folks know I mean business. Well, when I called to get the T-shirt made they informed me that although it’s not copyrighted and several other sites use it I can’t use it on a T-shirt. I got the T-shirt with just the company’s name (Shy’s Energy Healing Corner) and my next phone call was to Ryan. He agreed to help me come up with my own logo. He asked if I had any ideas and I told him I’m obsessed with the heart of the other logo so something like that. Then I remember there’s an artist at my job so I went to him and explained energy work and he gave me a quick drawing of hands and of little thingamajigs that would represent energy. I then told Ryan about the hands and it left my mind. Days later he sent me an image and I was AMAZED! We went through the process of editing which took some time and then last week a feeling of dissatisfaction came over me. I liked the image but suddenly I didn’t. How can I tell Ryan that I no longer liked it? No joke, as soon as I thought that I got a text with a completely different image from Ryan. It was so simple and nice. Sometimes simplicity is best. Well I really liked the heart from before and we tweaked it some to what it is now. This man has worked on this when my mind isn’t even on it. I mean I’m not going to call him daily and ask what’s up. I trust him and I’m always nicely surprised. He has worked so hard on it that I told him I want it copyrighted and that I won’t reveal it until then. I hit him up and asked him if he wanted to go ahead and do it or should I. He said I should. Then I don’t know why, but I got confused. I messaged him and asked if I should register it under my name or his. His response was what had me singing the gospel. He said: “You are registering it to you hun…Yes I created it but I created it for you.” Flatline! Such simple words but with so much magnitude. I blinked several times after reading it. I never thought of it as mines. I was so overcome with surprise, joy and thanksgiving! I couldn’t believe it. Those simple word made my day and then it hit me…. Showerssssssss of blessing, showers of blessings we need. Mercy drops round us are falling, but for the showers we plead. At this given time there’s no way I can afford to pay the price that Ryan or anyone of his caliber charges for his/their services. I remember that in December my Munchkin (nephew) started staying with me and staying turned into living (WOOT WOOT) and then in February I became financially responsible for my father. That’s a lot of expense on my salary and my savings account that was looking fluffy from tax time is almost depleted. Guess what? Neither I nor my nephew or dad in Jamaica has gone a day without eating and I thank God for that. Every time I peep my savings and I say Lord have mercy, it hasn’t emptied. Each time I call my dad and say hey daddy you can go pick up the money and I hear the gratitude in his voice it warms my heart. He’ll say, “Tank you dunn dunn tank you, Gawd go bless you, you hear, Gawd go bless you.’ I would say okay daddy, love you and talk to you later and then I do something bad. I’ll shrug off his words of blessings and then say something like, bless me? Hmph, well tell God to hit a sister up with some dough! Bad Shaniquea bad! In that moment when Ryan wrote those words I was nicely reminded of what I already knew but given my current situation I forgot. Blessings comes in different forms. When I calculate how much I have sent to my dad from February to now it wouldn’t equate to how much it would’ve cost me to get these two websites and logo going. So when those moments when I check my savings account and it’s not $0 those are the “mercy drops” that’s falling around me. When I have two beautiful sites and a logo handed to me, those are the “SHOWERS OF BLESSING.” I wanted to take this time out to remind you all that I’m sure a good bit of you reading this would like mo’ money in your pockets but sit back and review the incomings of non-monetary things that has come into your life recently and try putting a price tag on it and tell me, could you have afforded it? These blessings may not appear in the manner in which we may want but “there SHALL be showers of blessings, if we but trust and obey; there shall be seasons refreshing, if we let God [the Universe, Allah, Whomever you believe in] have His way.” ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Below is my logo which Ryan and I have worked on. I just had to have him included when I registered the logo so I paid the extra money (my goodness, did they really have to charge extra to add someone’s name?! I can’t stand the government sometimes) to have him listed as an author. *drum roll please* Ladies and gentlemen I unveil to you my logo for Shy’s Energy Healing Corner!!!! *gun fyah RAH RAHHH RAHH WOOT WOOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!* (See below my banner with logo) This logo sums me up. I’m a proud Black woman and I use my hands to heal, whether it be Reiki, body work, or writing. Green is the color associated with healers. The heart represents how in love I am with healing and my love for folks. The leaf represents my love for nature which is the best pharmaceutical drug there is and gold is for Divine light. Thank you so much Ryan for all that you have done. I know you say I’ve done a lot for you but I’m too humble and thick headed to see it. I’m glad that I mean a lot to you. It’s been a true blessing meeting you on Wally’s music chat room those years ago. From the tips of my toenails to the crown of my head, I thank you! *cheetah grin* Much love folks! Thanks for taking the time to read this. Love youuuuuuuuuuu! P.S: Go on over to my business site and check it out if you haven’t done so already.
