I had an amazing visit with a dear friend this past week. You may remember me discussing my ex roommate-turned friend-turned lifelong sister, Lianna. At one point, we were even co workers when God used her to send me my very first bookkeeping client! Talk about a divine connection! I thoroughly enjoyed her visit because… Continue reading A Measure of Success
In my early 30s, a sudden shift happened in the dry season that had lasted over 10 years of my nonexistent dating life. My heart cried out to God and He heard me. I asked God to move and He did. The floodgates opened, and y’all, it was literally raining men 😂🌧💃🏾. This new experience of hearing God say “yes” (with boundaries) is so opposite of hearing Him say “no” for so long that the sudden onslaught of attention and interest still has not been the easiest to navigate. In fact, I’ve had plenty of pitfalls, tear-stained nights and burdensome conversations. That being said, I also have had SO MUCH FUN.
I reflected back on the last 20 years, which were far from horrible. I felt that most of my greatest experiences were actually happening now, in my 30s. I realized that, though life has been far from easy, the experiences and opportunities I’ve had are probably very unique from many outside of my community, and academic acquaintances.
This weekend I put the pedal to the metal. Literally. My BFF planned to celebrate her b day in style and I planned to be there. Even in my planning I couldn’t have foreseen the significance of my presence. There have been so many shifts in my life in regards to my relationships in this… Continue reading Here’s to the Future!
This morning I awoke from a dream. That’s pretty common for me, I dream often. And I dream weird stuff often so sometimes I don’t know if it’s from God or from something I ate. But this dream stuck with me and usually that means it’s from God. In the dream there was a boy… Continue reading Standing in the Gap
Last week I found myself either lounging on a white sandy beach, snorkeling under the clear blue water, kayaking with a dear friend, eating fresh salmon on the deck of the Norwegian Sky for breakfast or strolling in the Botanical Gardens. Last week I found myself doing things I’ve never done before. Things I’ve dreamed… Continue reading FuN in tHe sUN
Saturday evening I was wandering aimlessly as my day’s plans had changed and I suddenly found myself with too much time on my hands (I know, I know, poor me). I was trying not to give in to temptation so prior to the cinema starting I made a last ditch effort and texted a friend… Continue reading Marriage at Its Finest
1 Corinthians 7:32 But I want you to be without care. He who is unmarried cares for the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord. But he who is married cares about the things of the world, how he may please his wife. There is a difference between a wife and a virgin. The… Continue reading Tis’ Better to be Single…Right?
She’s like a sister to me. Her brother is like a brother to me. Her family is like family to me. When we have conflict it’s like a huge space in my life that can’t be filled. When we were younger we had full out arguments. Now, seasoned with some maturity, we have conflict. It’s… Continue reading A Conflict of Sorts
