  • 2020 and 10 Years Time

    Coming into 2020 I spent a lot of time reflecting on the last 10 years of my life. I remembered that when I was 18 years old I had my life planned out. I would meet my future husband, I would be married by 23, I would have my own home, I would have my first child by 25 (of which I would have 3), and I would have the career of my choosing (which at the time (18) was a writer, although in high school I had wanted to be a voice actor and later a chef). However in the last ten years I have achieved none of that. I am as single as it gets, I do not have my own home (I live at home with my parents), I have no children, I am not a professional writer/author (I also never became a chef or got into voice acting)

    I guess in comparison of what I had expected to be as opposed to what is, it appears as though I failed. That however is far from the truth. In ten years I worked retail which opened the door for me to become a csr/mtm of a bank, I became an Aunt and have shared so many fun times with my now 10 year old niece, I started a women’s ministry page called Woman of God (in which I have written many articles) I’ve had opportunities to travel to places like New York to see a Broadway show and Radio City Music Hall for a concert, Seattle Washington for Comic Con as well as go to Longwood Gardens, I’ve met a lot of people (including Tom Hiddleston, Adam Young, Charlie Cox, and Hunter Hayes), I’ve tried new things such as archery and axe throwing, I learned that I could make the people closest to me laugh by doing impressions of movie characters, and I could make great memories with family cooking dinners. In 10 years I didn’t achieve the things I thought I would have when I was 18 years old, instead my life thus far has turned out completely different than I expected it would by 28. But in that I achieved dreams I didn’t know existed and I grew as a person and because of that I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I guess it’s true in the words of John Lennon “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”

  • God Speaks Through The Little Things (Accompanying Song Flashlight By: Hunter Hayes)

    Everyday God speaks to me not only by speaking to my heart but through the little things that so often go unnoticed. It makes me so happy to know that I am loved by God. God loves us so much that He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. God cares about every second of everyday of our lives. God is a God of detail, everyday He speaks to us through the small things, it’s like recieving little love letters from God throughout the day. We just need to take the time to notice them. God has taught me this in the past year and I’ve found that if we take each day one at a time trusting that God will guide us to where He wants us and pay attention to the small things He uses to speak to us it makes everyday a blessing.
