God's LOVE 
The Birth
Alpha and Omega 
Eternity // No Beginning nor End = CIRCLE 

To move all the way around
Completing a cycle and starting again = CIRCLE 


A Group [of people] = CIRCLE 


From the time I could read, I was delegated the task to participate in the announcements, responsive reading, and/or share the 'Thought for Today' at my church on "youth sunday(s)."  I would always look forward to sharing the "Thought for Today," as it encouraged self reflection and action towards personal growth through thought provoking material via poetry & spoken word; historical stories both biblical and cultural; drama; dance, etc...

When I was in highschool, after attending Bible Study/Prayer Meeting on wednesday nights, I would walk to the Coatesville Cultural Society (a theatre company that provided a gathering place for cultural arts through drama, dance, music, and poetry with hopes of healing and strengthening the community) to participate in "Writer's Forum", a circle of individuals who shared innermost thoughts/experiences/observations through thought provoking words of expression.


A Vision received from the Lord 

At the age of 15, the Lord began to place in me a vision that has continued to grow. He has equipped me throughout the years for the vision that was received for a community facility, "The LAMP".

It is my desire to fulfill the vision of creating an atmosphere for the community that provides services for the needs and desires of ALL who enter the doors.  A space for refuge from crisis and the happenings of daily life.  A community counseling center/cafe providing expressive art therapies (poetry/art/dance/drama), individual counseling, group counseling, family counseling while meeting needs holistically - body/mind/spirit; to promote a healthy and safe environment in self and in the community, while encouraging unity amongst  cultural divides.

The LAMP "...A Light Unto My Path” 

                       = CIRCLED 
 Welcome to Circled!

 A place where (different than the Blog) I share a few of my  social posts for a bird's eye view into my daily life as well  as #thoughtsfortoday, to encourage self-reflections and  action towards personal growth through written words of  expression! 



                                    Enjoy - Engage - Share! 








                                                                            Habakkuk 2:3 (NKJV)
                                                                   "For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
                                                                 But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
                                                                 Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will                                                                        surely come, It will not tarry."

Psalm 91... 

Last night I was given the assignment to pray over you as you transitioned into your eternal resting place. It was an honor, knowing that I was being prepared for this moment for 2yrs now, this 'strength' everyone says I had was nothing but the Lord! 
10pm last nite to 5am this morning will never fully be explained with words, however there is no doubt that you are present with the Lord. 
🙏🏽
                  Rest in Peace Richard L. Stokes

Listen!! If I haven't stressed it enough allow me to
say it again...TRUST HIM and be obedient EVEN in
the midst of the unknown -- last November
something fell through and I cried (and cried) and
said "How Lord? When?!" the voice of the Lord said "Just because you do not see in the natural what I'm doing in the spiritual, does not mean I'm not moving. Trust Me Jessica" - and I have literally continued to receive glimpses and pieces of the promise(s) since then --- BUT TODAY!!!!! All I can do is Praise Him!
I know this is vague - but it's worth so much more
than a status/post - I will share more soon but 'The Lamp' is no longer a "vision"; no longer a conversation piece; it is here!

The first time every parent stares at a screen waiting to see and hear a strong heart is before the baby arrives, as a sign of life and a healthy pregnancy. You never think that you'll have to be concerned for your child's heart again, still praising God for signs of life.

[Posted by Mclean Bible Women's Ministry]

• MBC Women Spotlight • Meet Jessica, our Wednesday Night Study Table Leader Coordinator!
“I believe that women's ministry allows us to foster a community - a sisterhood - while nurturing the ability to grow spiritually as individuals as we go on a journey together to go deeper into the word, inspire transparency, and encourage & intercede for one another.”

She also recently published a women's study devotional Simply Redeemed, which was birthed out of pure obedience.
“I had no idea ALL that the Lord was planning to do when I was instructed to create a women's community Bible study. (I am in awe daily!) He is truly able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we can ask or think, and it is all for His glory!“ #MBCWomen 




Great things are happening!

Same pair 👖from size 12 to 8! 
Why am I posting this...

Recently several girlfriends have asked "Jessica, how did you do it?" Are you still nursing (no stopped over 6mos ago) Are you working out (no I really don't even know where to start lol) what is it?? 

My sis Kelly Diane said back in January "the Lord has an assignment over your life, don't let your body ware out before your assignment is over" 

That encouraged me that as I operate as a wife/mommy/ministry/business, I have to be the healthiest me - for me it started in the kitchen. You all know I enjoy food and express my love through the sharing of food so I incorporate healthier options/cut out sugary drinks (I'd rather a bomb dessert)/and cut back on the snacking (and snacking on my kid's portions...moms you know how that goes). 

I didn't do it for the scale, but seeing the change in my dress size has encouraged me. You got This!

Speaking from the experiences of no epidural/c-section

When you're in labor for so long and your body begins to react naturally attempting to push..the baby is right there..crowning..but you have to wait until the Dr says it's time to push or you will cause damage and potential harm to both you and the baby...although you know your body is saying push, you have to wait! Everything in you is moving to position the baby as the Dr stands by - ensuring the safest, healthiest delivery
And then...you hear those words.."okay, take a deep breath and PUSH" receiving the permission to finally deliver what was being birthed in you.

This is my season of #LaborandDelivery 

I've gone through the labor pains, my body is shaking, the baby has crowned, I've already began to push! - the Delivery is coming!!!

It's not about "haters" it's really about the Lord exposing the character of others.

When you know your prayers are being answered....
Caleb, Blaire and I are shopping at wegmans for an order and sat down to have lunch.

An older woman who was having lunch at another table approached me and said

"you are the most pleasant mom I have witnessed in a long time"

Immediately I responded with many thanks.

She shared that she has 4 of her own and 3 grands and that

"[my] demeanor with them and theirs showed that they are truly happy and you are a wonderful mother."

This came 2nd to another woman in the store who shared that she has 5 girls and that she can see that Caleb and Blaire are "truly happy."

So what was my prayer...when I was pregnant with Blaire, I and my husband consistently prayed for my patience with our little ones!!!

All I can say is, "The Fruit of Obedience is Abundant" - read this message posted from a beautiful young moment I met visiting from Indonesia 
#simplyredeemed #MBC

#Repost @keziahildetamar 
・・・
A couple days ago, I went to a church with my aunt for some volunteer night just because I had nothing to do that day. We decided to sit in the second row up front. All of a sudden, a woman came up to me and asked if the seat next to me was taken. I said no, go ahead. We didn't talk that much as I listened to a preach, but we did talk.
..
When the preacher was about to close the service with prayer, she whispered me "After this, I wanted to talk to Dale first then I want to give you something. Is that ok?" I was a little bit shocked, because we just met and she wanted to give me something?
..
After the service was done, she told me that the "something" was on her car so she asked was that ok for me to go with her. Well, to be frank, I was very scared because WE JUST MET and she wanted me to go to her car, but I thought "why not?"
..
After arriving in her car, she finally revealed what would she give me. Turned out, she is an author who just released her book. She told me that earlier at the service, she was about to text her husband saying that she know no one there and wanted to just go home. But some voice in her heart said NO and told her to sit at the front. She decided to sit next to me and the same voice moved her to give me her book.
..
The book somehow also related to what I've been struggling for this past a year and it surely strengthen me. Thank you Jessica! @simplyredeemedt335 I know this all just God's plan that we finally bumped to each other. See you soon, dear

I was blessed this weekend in many ways, one including this man - pastor Wayne Wyatt of @loudounbible. He poured into my marriage & ministry in several ways.

My sister Carol sent this to me a few days ago and I have read it through tear filled eyes a trillion times 😢 😢 😢 😭 😭 

This is a reminder that...

1. when the Lord says "move," trusting Him requires obedience 

2. We serve a supernatural God who through Him, "Nothing Is Impossible!" 

3. All things that He births through us is for HIS glory! (watch my most recent video on YouTube from mother's day 2017) 

4. I have the most beautiful, loving, and supportive people in my life. Those who express the value of love UNconditionally.

"To Hell with you"...

So many people say "I'll pray for you" ... but have you ever considered 'who' they are praying to?

OR those who say they'll pray, but don't truly trust and believe that the Lord is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore - so their prayers are without faith?

OR 

those who say "to Hell with you" - do they truly know what that means?

I have heard a conversation that involved me with that phrase used, "to Hell with her" and with the same mind tell me that they are praying for me --- no thank you!

Is this too #real for you?
This "supermom" has had an all too real day today... maybe it's the rain And the fact that I have had the #tribe out all day trying to both entertain while running business errands •

maybe it's the fact that they have all missed their naps, so the day just got real for them too. •

OR that an even exchange at Target just went horribly wrong due to a very tired yet very accommodating me, 3 screaming/nagging/tired little ones, and an associate who cast blame on their mistake but thankfully the manager handled it.
I'm still a G...I cried in the car tho  😂

On my 15th birthday I went on tour with #TheDelfonics (my uncle played with them at the time). We traveled from Philly to VA and the show was rained out - that day I received the best version of the Happy Birthday song ever! 

#LaLaLaLaLaLaLaLaMeansILoveYou

Why share this?

At the age of 12 I stole a box of mail ordered cd's from my aunt and once I got them home my mom knew something had to be behind the lies that I gave (The Delfonics' cd was included).

Not only did I get in trouble, but I had to see my aunt everyday who believed she could no longer trust me around her belongings.

There are so many hurting right amongst you...you may see them everyday at work, on social media, in your homes, or even in the mirror! 
PRAY..LOVE..HELP
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
My heart is hurting, too many are taking their own lives...if you notice the signs please help or find someone who can!
...and YES, prayer is necessary because it's time to acknowledge that spiritual battles are real too!

From the beginning of this year I have had the privilege to worship with various ministries ranging in styles of worship, denomination, culture, and size - from intimate setting to seating capacity including thousands... 

I am privileged and honored to be on this journey with my husband that allows us to be ministered to while ministering to others, seeing the church as One body and experiencing the Lord in new ways! 

I am excited for what is ahead!!

Lord today I declare that I am no longer just talking about 'The Lamp'  - now that You have given me the vision in its entirity after 16 years it is time to move forward!! I have declared that I will have a building/running business in 2 years!! This year I am claiming and trusting that You will provide the financial ability to file and receive my 501c3 and that You will continue to move me according to Your vision to be all that I have visioned and more!
Lord these things I praise You in advance for, in Jesus' name Amen.

As you thank the Lord for the ultimate sacrifice, reflect also that the greatest sacrifice was not the physical torture yet the darkness of sin in which He exclaimed "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani!" 

Repeat the following and allow it to truly resonate with your spirit 

"Jesus suffered the wrath of God for the atonement of our sins, and for that He experienced anguish in the spirit that is beyond description or imagination."

As an encouragement to someone who may need to hear this ---

everytime I have a moment of "How Lord?!" or "When??" He reminds me of the very thing that He gave to me back in November, "Just because you cannot see in the natural what I'm doing in the spiritual does not mean I'm not moving"

I was literally just sitting here thinking and praying on a few "how Lord" and "when(s)" and in that moment that I stopped worrying and began to pray - I received confirmation on one situation and a request from someone regarding the other!

I leave you with this - in the midst of doing what you are called to do and what you've been chosen to fulfill - TRUST Him!
"And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart" - Galatians 6:9
"He will do exceedingly and abundantly above all that you can ask or think" - Ephesians 3:20

#Tears... 
Today is our #7thAnniversary! Many tears from watching this video clip - memory of "Dad" [David Jemmott Sr.] who married us and had such an irreplaceable role in our lives; memory of walking down the aisle to #makemewhole by @amellarrieux [the lyrics are my exact feelings towards you David Jemmott ]; memory of the 400 friends and family who witnessed and joined us in prayer; and the various bonds that were strengthened and renewed on that day. 
But specifically tears of joy and praise that as we celebrate '7' (number of completeness and perfection) that it is no coincidence that this 7th year of marriage has been the BEST year thus far.

We have grown as individuals, as parents, as worshippers, as lovers, as friends, as ONE!

A group of women in PA that was formed to journey through #SimplyRedeemed has completed the study tonight! They are so filled and excited from what they have received over the course of 6wks and have decided to stay together as a group for further studies!!!

I cannot wait to meet with them for the first time for a Q/A and just hear how the Lord moved in each of their lives personally!! (Thank you Lord for the glimpses!!!) This is ALL for His Glory! Simply Redeemed T335​

#onthisday 1yr ago will forever be a memory that I hold dear in my heart... it was on this night that as we completed wk4 through the #SimplyRedeemed#Biblestudy (which btw became the book!), that I surprised the ladies of the original group with a#footwashing that all of us participated in as symbols of #humility & #love. We shared laughs, fears, and a few prideful moments that nite. But what makes it that much more special was that on that night...I went into labor (and yes, we all prayed that she would come  😁) and on tomorrow we will intimately celebrate #babygirl and her #1stbday!  💖 🙏 🙌

I see progress! I see goals reached! 
There were times in my life that I didn't always know if/what would be the next meal, so I took pride in always having a fridge/freezer stocked...which led to food wasted. 
So now - along with our grocery budget, I plan (projected meals...I enjoy going on a whim) to decrease the amount of food that is wasted timeafter time.

#lettinggoofstrongholds • It has taken me 12yrs to come back to this location, where I (and a few friends) were once followed through the parking lot then pulled over by 5 patrol cars - frisked, accused of theft, and accused for "being high on 'laced' weed"  😐 - I was in contact with various civic leaders/lawyers and nothing was settled..so I held on to feelings of public shame/emotional abuse/anger and rejection in ways that I did not realize..but today, that has been #released. #nolongerbound #letgo

#TBT Circa 91' - I still remember this day as vividly as the current...every color/every cut, she had...but this was the one that was in every picture I drew for the next 5 yrs; I remember holding her hand and running my 6yo fingers across her rings (more specifically the one shaped like a hand) hoping one day she would give it to me; I watched her effortlessly paint on her #redlipstickwith a tiny brush and wondered how it always looked like her lips were just naturally that color (I drank plenty of #redkoolaid to achieve the look); I watched how she smiled for the camera, though there was so much more to be said behind the lens of her eyes... she didn't teach me to make #lemonadewith lemons, instead she made #suntea. // #mom #throwbackthursday #beautyishername #souldeep #olivejuice

The proof is in the evidence of His word. You don't always have to speak when you think you need to.He will be your protector because He will use you in situations later. In those moments that you feel you need to prove a point, don't speak, allow the Lord to work on your behalf.

******* 

"Life with Scleroderma has been painful but blessing. I have successfully change my life from being hopeless to cheerful and positive. Made many friends, met excellent doctors, Blessed and touched by His Holiness Dalai Lama, Met many musicians whose music worked better then all those Opioids. Went from Oxygen Cylinder to No cylinder. Wheelchair to walking, soon running. Met lawmakers.
Now I take Miss Jolene to park by myself everyday when she demand, "I want to go to playground and cycle and Stutty" before she used to bring my oxygen cannula and help me climb stairs. Once I had to tell her, "she cannot go to park coz mummy is in Oxygen and cannot take stairs". She was just two.
Thank you Donor. And now I think I know who you are. If you are the one who I think you are, I will make sure , I take your two Babies to playground too and treat them like mine. Coz you are still living inside me.
Love to you in Heaven"

#BirthdayPost "...let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them;
4 For the Lord your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you." Deuteronomy 20:3-4 // Having the opportunity to finally attend a game on Sunday and it being the season's championship, was more than exciting. Down a man and still not as many in number or size as their opponents, who adorned official uniforms; plays in their sleeves; and arrogance = #intimidation. Before the game started I began to pray..."Lord allow them to not play defeated! Give them #victory on the field. I speak victory that they WILL win this game!" 
It was an exciting and nerve wrecking game...they played with so much heart..and when it seemed impossible with only 2 seconds left (as I stood on the sideline repeating "Victory, Jesus!") the#RecordBreakers #WON the #chapionshipgame!!!! So to my husband #HAPPYBIRTHDAY!!!!

Happy Birthday to #thesweetestthing I've ever known --- You asked me, "Why is it that you understand me better than others and sometimes myself?" 
It's because I was formed in your womb - created from you as part of you. You once held the beat of two hearts as God chose you to create life/birth life/nurture and manage life - ME! So how is it a wonder that I understand you?
I know you because I was made from you but more so because God saw fit to allow you to see how much He loves you at a time when you wondered what LOVE really is, by gifting you the ability to birth love itself - His creation.
I know you because I've witnessed you grow from a 20yo girl to a (uhum) 52yo woman. You've shared your life stories with me in order for me to grow/learn/appreciate/celebrate your experiences - and I thank you. 
Why is it that I know you better than others/yourself? - Because I have been gifted the ability to see beauty, celebrate purpose, and acknowledge the divinity of God's creation when it's difficult for others to see/honor. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you Mom - a woman who always gives of herself and deserves a celebrated life!

I am so thankful that after watching "Miracles from Heaven" our oldest son asked me to pray as he led stating "God I believe!" -

Tonight my husband and I led our son into a prayer of salvation after having a detailed conversation with him regarding WHO Jesus is; WHAT sin is; WHY Jesus died on the cross; and his understanding/acceptance/belief in all of that 

I am so blessed to witness this and in awe that 3 very different stories; 3 very different souls all confessed that Jesus is Lord at the same age! (Daddy - Mommy - Jordan - age 5) 8/23/16

"And then there were 3..." Another surprise from the husband...this is the 6th story from our life's timeline that Austin Light has told using his amazing illustrations! Jordan Alexander, Caleb Jeremiah, & Blaire Isabella
As a child I have always had a heart for people...it's a gift passed on through my family...it's the reason why I am frequently humbled and honored when individuals from my past and current share that my kindness and interaction(s) with them impacted their lives.  
‪#‎sharetheloveofChrist‬

Today, my heart is broken..My last few trips home I have witnessed the very negative effects of laced drugs gone horribly wrong on a young lady who was once vibrant and full of laughter...she is now unrecognizable at first sight physically/mentally/socially. 

It put a new perspective on the memories of individuals we use to run away from as kids for sport...

Those of you who know 'her'..see 'her'..and/or experience interaction or the passing by of others like 'her'...don't point, don't laugh, don't taunt, and don't ignore...love on her and pray for her healing.

I've made choices in my life to ensure that my children will Lord willing not have to experience the pain of losing multiple friends/loved ones to gun violence, as I have...only to be introduced to a "new fear" (frequented) amongst our land. 

While I have had my own experiences of injustice, nothing compares to the more than frequent headlines of a life deferred/threatened due to [fill in the blank of any excuse given] . So many lives are being taken/threatened during every day activities... working with an autistic client while in the community; traffic stop; wearing a hoodie; playing music too loud; selling CDs; selling cigarettes; protecting others....Guess what, I've done all of those things...does my life matter?

Let me start by saying thank you all for your previous and continuous prayers...they are not in vain...although difficult to see your child in pain and in the hospital for several days, i have honestly had a God given peace about it this entire time...the Lord prepared me that Caleb was going to get sick a week before he did (there is nothing the enemy can 'plan' without the Lord's knowledge) ... and of course when he does get sick it was severe enough for hospitalization and yet one with "no traceable reason" ...
so with your prayers and our authority to speak healing over our children david and i both have prayed over and laid hands on caleb...so as i currently sit in the dr office during his followup..it came as no surprise that the dr was surprised by the fact that he "so rarely" had all of the "classic signs" of kawasaki disease and followed by saying "its almost like voodoo" this man doesn't even realize he is absolutely correct, in this case we are dealing with something spiritual! This is not the first time that the enemy has attempted to cause distraction and fear through physical/medical attacks over me and my family. Yet, he has NO AUTHORITY in my home, in my marriage, over my children.

Ephesians 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places

2 Corinthians 10:3-4
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.

Isaiah 54:17
No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.

"Train up a child in the way they should go..."//Proverbs 22:6// I know it's late..but this week is full of late nite's while Jordan is attending VBS. I received a message from his teacher last nite through two individuals acknowledging his gift of prayer...I'm in awe every nite when we pray, the purity and honesty in his prayers truly brings me to tears, and tonite as I cried of course he and David laughed (but it's ok, lol).
