Today is my dad’s birthday, and though I can’t wish him happy birthday face to face I am just grateful to God for the time we spent together. I miss him and I can still remember the day I’d gotten the news that my dad had passed away. He was the one that took me places and taught me how to ride a bike. I can remember when I was eight years old, when I kiss him while he was in a casket at church. I remember how much it hurt to know my dad would no longer be on this earth. I can remember the nights I would pray to God that he would tell my dad that I love him. All I can say now is that I love you dad and I thank God for you

Please forgive me of every sin that I have done, Lord I thank you for everything that you have done for me. You have given me life and change me and I am grateful. I know you did not have to save me but you did. Lord I thank you for helping me in high school, and even in college. You have provided the money for my school tuition and I am truly grateful. Lord please help to continue to pay for college. I don't want to stress about the lack of money, so I am resting in my Savior who is my best friend and Provider.

It is so easy to pick up a book and read stories about falling in love. It is so easy to fantasize about falling in love with the perfect person. And hard for most people to wait, and that leaves most people blind to the fact that they have just awaked certain yearnings too early. And the results of thoes romantic books and even movies lead to temptation and trouble, people will start finding themselves battling with thoughts. For me I use to read love stories and watch romantic movies, thinking of the perfect guy for me. I wanted to feel the way the girls felt in the movies and books. I know I am not alone, because every girl wants to be loved but with some guidance as to what these books and movies can do (awaked love too early) I had to pull myself away from these things. I see the importance in guarding my heart and waiting for my husband. I don’t want to give away myself to any guy that is not mine. I don’t want to fantasize being with a guy that God did not intend for me to be with. I learned that physical purity and emotional purity is very important and I should be saving that for my husband. Even if God does not call me to be married I still must have my heart guarded. But if God does call me to be a married woman, I want to wait and let God write my love story in stand of rushing into love too soon.

I have been so busy with studying for finals and now that that is over I am at home trying to settle in and get things here at home that need to be done. I have a chance to get my job back and make some money for the school. I pray that this summer the Lord will help me in paying for my tuition. I can’t believe that the first semester in college went by so fast and I have learned a lot this semester that I will carry on to the next semester. I will more productive in every class and make sure that everything that I do is with my heart and done correctly. My prayer for this summer would be that everything that I do would glorify the name of the Lord and that I would use my time wisely. I really don’t want this summer to go by and have not done anything. I plan on writing essays every week for scholarships and I pray that I will receive some money from these scholarships. Pray that all will be well with this summer. In June I will be 20 years old and I am excited and scared because I will be an adult and I don’t know if I am ready for this journey of life. But I know as long as I put God first everything will be okay. I Pray that I will be made and transform into the woman of God He has called me to be.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there and I want to thank you all for being the wonderful mothers that you are. I thank God for you all. I thank God for giving me a lovely mother that has been there for me and my brothers and sisters. This mother’s day, my brother, sister and I made my mom some Eggplant and Chickpea Tagine, Spicy Potatoes, and Cherry Coconut Munchies. It was funny making the food for our mom because after all she deserves to be treated well on her day.
