He’s not finished with me yet…

What is my purpose on this earth?
I’ve been struggling with this question for many years, and even more over the last 3 and a half yrs. I’ve taken to studying God’s word daily in an effort to better understand His teachings and instructions but I am still unsure what His plans are for my life.

This morning my daily devotional text message was from Romans chapter 8 and it read as follows:

Romans: 8.
28. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
30. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
31. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32. He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
38. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Bible Offline

Though I’m still studying the book of Numbers, seeing this passage from Romans has given me a bit of hope especially as it comes in the beginning of a brand new year! Perhaps it was meant to remind me that I need to keep working on my faith for at times it may be weak. Perhaps it was meant to remind me that even if I don’t know what God has planned for me, unlike when He promised the children of Israel the ‘Land of Milk and Honey’, I still need to believe that whatever it is it will be something good — something beyond my wildest dreams.

So today I feel blessed to be reminded that God is up to ‘something’ and all I have to do is trust Him and wait for His wonderful surprise.

My year seems off to a wonderful start and I pray that yours is too.

Best wishes to you all…

Hugs,
A.

On Cloud Nine

You make me smile
You make me sing
You make me dance
You make me happy
You make me fly
I’m on cloud nine!

Don’t take your blessings for granted…

Today I have much to be thankful for, but for now, I will only list 3 to keep this short:

1. Life:
I’m grateful to be fairly healthy and active and that I’m in a culture of great opportunity, free speech, freedom to love whomever I choose and not have that decision made for me.

2. Love:
I’m blessed to have a huge heart so full of love and that I’m not afraid to share such an amazing treasure with others. My little family fills me with joy everyday which extents to those around me as well as to all of you.

3.This blog:
I feel so fortunate to have this medium through which I can voice my thoughts and feelings and for the wonderful connections I’m making with all of you along the way. I love it here!

Feel free to pause for moment to thank God for something. We have so much to be grateful for, and it’s unfortunate that we often take those things for granted.

Hugs to you all and best wishes for a wonderful day! ☺ 🌷

Finding strength in friendship…

img_0785-33

image

In the silence
When I can’t hear your voice
I try to imagine the direction
I should look to find you.

I’m not great
With such spacial orientations.
North,  South,  East, West?
They all seem to leave me puzzled.

But somehow, without fail,
I seem to find your heart
Because you are searching
For mine too.

Your soul reaches over
The many obstacles
Which others find daunting
And it finds mine.

I keep thinking
One day your eyes
Would dig too deep
And see unsightly parts of me,

And just like that
Your soul would finally stop
Searching for mine
And disappear into the shadows.

So I try to think of reasons
You shouldn’t look so closely,
But you’re not the superficial type
You live for depth, you’re not afraid.

You don’t mind getting messy
And it amazes me
That you aren’t deterred
By the state of my garden.

You’re willing to help me
Till the stubborn soil
To soften and mulch,
To plant new seeds of love.

Like the seasons
My Spring will soon come.
And hopefully,  those seeds
Will bloom into something wonderful.

So I hope you’ll stick around
To bear witness to your handiwork,
To see how much I’ve grown
Because of you.

Song

A journey into my past…

If you could travel back in time, what would you tell your younger self?

I’ve pondered that question many times over the years, and I always come back to the one thing I regret — not believing in myself when I was a young mother. I let the voices of my elders lead me down a path that I now know was the wrong one for me, and if I had the chance to do it all again, that’s the only thing I’d change. It’s true that our experiences shape us. Our characters are formed through our trials, errors and victories. I know also, that my one regret has imprinted my being and it now shapes my perspective on life and parenting.

So, if I could talk to my younger self, I’d tell her to be brave, to have faith in herself, to trust her instincts, to keep close to God and watch Him work wonders in her life. And, without saying anything else, I’d just hug her for I know it’s one of the things she never got enough of.

What would you tell your younger self if you had the chance?

Sing to me Julio!

Hello beautiful people!

I’m grateful to have made it to another day and I hope you are too. ☺

My thoughts have been a little scattered lately. Many major changes are in progress, but I always enjoy connecting with you lovely folks out there in blog land. It’s a nice change of pace from all the chaos in my head. All the sweet sentiments, humor and intelligence, I discover on a daily basis certainly keeps me occupied and stimulated in a positive way. Thank you all for being a part of my world, you are all appreciated!

I’m chillin’ with Julio today. Too busy to look up the meaning of his lyrics as I’m being twirled on the dance floor by a handsome gentleman to this amazing song (I wish!). Hope it takes you to a happy place too, enjoy! 🌷

Surf’s Up | Summer Fun…

Hi guys,

Woke up today with a song in my head but when I tried to find it I couldn’t. Seems my ‘wonky brain’ has successfully paired the song in my head with the wrong artist. I’m gonna need my blog partner B, the music genius, to help me sort this one out!

Anyway, in my search, I came across a Sugar Ray song I’d never heard before which reminded me of the peace and relief which came ‘after the rain’ — a huge thunderstorm that came through our area a couple days ago.

It’s been sweltering here in NYC for a bit and we definitely needed that rain to take the edge off. Feels great now! So have a listen to my new music discovery, perhaps it too will help take the edge off for you.

Happy Summer, stay cool and have a great day everyone!🌷

Hugs,
A.

Hogs and Cigarettes

Lyrics

1st verse:
The hog is his ‘lady’,
He stares at her with loving eyes.
She sits there waiting for his company,
Wanting him to take her for a ride.

2nd verse:
In his eyes she’s beautiful,
She’s the best girl he’s ever had.
And when he’s with her he’s in heaven
Just his ‘lady’ and the open road.

Chorus:
But at night she cries,
But at night she cries,
Because he leaves her all alone outside
And has a cigarette, keeping him warm inside.

3rd verse:
When morning comes she happy,
She can’t wait to see his smiling face.
She feels his touch on her body,
Her engine revs as her fuel fills her veins.

4th verse:
Then he climbs on board his ‘lady’,
Ready to share the miles hand-in-hand,
And as they race along the highway,
She’s wishing this day never ends.

Chorus:
Because at night she cries,
Because at night she cries,
He keeps leaving her all alone outside,
And has a cigarette, keeping him warm inside.

Bridge:
In a perfect world she’s all he needs.
In a perfect world their life is sweet.
In a perfect world he never leaves.
He never leaves.

Chorus:
But at night she cries,
But at night she cries,
Because he leaves her all alone outside,
And has a cigarette, keeping him warm inside.

Chorus:
But at night she cries,
But at night she cries,
Because he leaves her all alone outside,
And has a cigarette, keeping him warm inside.

The space in between

image

In between sleep and wake
I find a place that’s strangely familiar.
I dream of real life
While real life feels like a dream.
Is this my reality
Or am I dreaming?
