When I first moved down to the south, I was absolutely terrified to be leaving my hometown. Coincidentally, it was the same town where I exhausted the subject of “I never want to live here when I am older.” I was in disbelief with my thoughts and they became a reality. I was in the south, unaware of the atmosphere and the people.
I actively searched for various churches and fell in love with the appearance of this church. I hesitated at first due to the size of the church, but then realized I should go anyway. Thanks to my resistance of so called “fear” this is how I met my best friend.
Happy Mother’s Day! Picture above is where I doodled on a piece of paper this evening. I am so blessed to have my mother on my side and be there for me when I need it! 🙂 My mother is so wonderful and loved by so many! God is so good.
Good evening! There are moments I am so grateful for amazing people in my life. Especially those I can talk to whenever I am able to. These amazing people in my life deserves to be applauded and they deserve many warm, long and tight hugs. 🙂

I’m going to share this little note which I wrote almost a year ago.
Today I am thankful for my beautiful sister. A week ago from today she passed away suddenly and I am deeply saddened by her absence, but I am very happy knowing her presence is in the arms of our Lord, our Heavenly Father. She is no longer chained with sin and tribulation.
This dear friend of mine.. Oh how richly blessed to look back and see how God works through me and my so called schedule in life. How easily he fits people in like a glove when you need it. Every Saturday morning I committed myself to attend a women’s Bible study and be surrounded in a room filled with beautiful ladies who are wise, genuine, raw, beautiful, have such insight and perspective.
First of all, here are a few Bible verses to exclaim how richly blessed I truly am…
Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. |Psalm 100:4-5|
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! |Psalm 52:2|
Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! |Psalm 106:1|
I’m also thankful for being able to go to church and praise the Lord’s glorious name, my amazing family, dearest friends, a roof over my head, food on my plate, a job where I use my gifts to help those who have autism and other developmental delays, a car that works, technology/social media where I can stay in touch to those who live miles away, and so many other things I cannot think of right now.
“I hope you find someone who is brave enough to enter your storm, and respects you enough to love the size of your waves. I hope you find someone who will relish the calm you can have, and who is eager to set sail on the expanse of your mind. I hope you find someone that can’t escape the love they have for you, because now they have you in their very blood, always reminding them that you are the only sea worth exploring.”
Happy Sunday! Remember this: you are so loved, so worthy and there will always be someone who cares deeply about you. Don’t allow sadness spoil your livelihood. Allow joy to come into your heart because you are whole in every way imaginable! Can’t you see it?
