16: Most People Don't Know This But......

Today's Prompt:  "Most people don't know this but..."





I struggle with letting people in my life. I like to protect myself from hurt and disappointments

It takes awhile for me to get to know other people. Please don't take my quietness as me not wanting to get to know you.

I struggle throughout school. I was told that I would never make it to college, majoring in social work. But I have made the deans list and was a A student in my social work classes. I also have a Masters Social Work. 

I do not like watermelon. I know most people do but I do not like the taste of watermelon.

Since moving to Philly, I am afraid of the dark. I am not sure why.

I played the piano and clarinet in middle and high school.

I really want to travel to Rome one day.

I love Photography but I do not like it when people take pictures of me without my permission. 

I can read Spanish and understand Spanish when spoken but I cannot carry a long conversation in Spanish. 




What about you? What are some things people do not know about you?

14: Why I blog?

Todays Prompt:  When did you start blogging and why?





I started to blog in the year 2005. I remember being in my High School library when I made the decision to blog. There was a lot of things going on in my life. I was dealing with depression, loneliness and being teased. I was a "new" Christian and starting to know God by going to church, praying  and reading the Bible. Over the years, my reasons for blogging have changed. At first, I just wanted a place to write out my thoughts and write about God and prayers.  I want my blog to be about God, life, prayers and journaling. I have grown a lot since my first blog post and in a way I think, blogging has shown my journey and growth in Christ Jesus. I hope this blog will be a place people are shown the love of God and can be encourage to keep following Christ.

13: Your current relationship status.

Today's Prompt: Your current relationship status. If dating/married, give us a glimpse of your story! If single, share about this special season.

Single Girl....


I can remember time and time, people asking me "why are you single?" or "do you have a boyfriend?" That question use to bother me but it does not now. I have accepted that I am single and I probably will be single for awhile. Being single is good and a blessing.

I found this time of singleness a blessing and a time I should use wisely. I have been using this time to involve myself in church and life group. Right now I am learning to be content where I am in my life. I am learning to live one day at a time, instead of trying to speed up time or always wondering what someone is doing. 

I wrote this quote in my journal on 4.19.2014. 

I do solemnly resolve to embrace my current season of life and will maximize my time in it. I will resist the urge to hurry through or circumvent any portion of my journey but will live with a spirit of contentment. 

 The Resolution for Women By Priscilla Shirer


This quote describe where I am in my singleness. I would love to be in the ministry of marriage but I am content. I just want to daily seek God and get closer to him. I will continue to pray for the opportunity and privilege to be in ministry of marriage, but I am happy to be single.
