Hi, Good Morning ya’ll, how are you doing today?
Well me, I am just fine. This year has started out a little rough and challenging; especially in three areas; finances; miscarriages and first trimester blues; but even though things are still a bit challenging now; I see my life turning around like I knew it would and it feels wonderful.
My mother and little sister Tatyanna (10 yrs old) arrived here safely, Sunday at about minutes to 2 a.m; July 26th, now we have a full apartment; I can’t tell you how much I am glad to see them; how grateful I am they are here and I want them to have the best experience of their lives; well until another best experience of their lives come along. So far so good; she (my mom) has only been here two days and those days already have felt so full and rewarding.
In the last two weeks; things have really began to turn around for us financially; I mean we still have a lot of catching up to do but jobs are coming; God is providing; our fridge and cupboards are full; in the last two weeks; I have received physical and spiritual blessings that I that I have been praying for, for so long; I am eternally grateful to my Heavenly Daddy; it really makes me want to fight to improve myself, strengthen and improve my attitude, especially during the tough times, so much more. I want to be the woman he designed me to be; I want to bless and praise God for blessing me; not only with the physical items; but with the wonderful, loving, kind hearted people in my life; awesome siblings; the greatest husband a woman can ask for; the most beautiful and sweetest mother a girl can be blessed with; the smartest, prettiest, most athletic, confident, talented daughter in the world; a wonderfully active baby boy in my tummy, who is staying healthy for mommy, a loving Church-family and so, so much more. Thank you God; Thank you, Jesus.
From conversations I have been having with my mother lately; about my life and even things she can see for herself without me pointing it out; I realize how favored my life is and always have been; despite; financial and anxiety troubles. Did you know that I have hardly had to buy a single thing for my baby girl since I have moved to America? Do you know I have free medical care and my daughter will receive free schooling in September? Did you know I have hardly shop for my own food for the last two years; and believe it or not I have sort of complained about that. Did you know that my God (hopefully your God too) is an awesome God? I certainly do.
I often wonder why God has found favor on my life; is it because of my kindness and generosity towards others; is it because of the tithes we have paid whenever we received a payment of some sort; is it my prays, the prays of others or my mother’s prays over my life for all my life (like I am doing for Kytara and Kenei now); is it our service to our church; is it God’s grace or is it because we accepted him as Lord and Savior; I think it is all those things and maybe so much more. I know one thing; it’s not just because I am good looking (smile). Once again; thank you; God Almighty.
Today is my dad’s 52nd birthday (another blessing) and tomorrow is my sister Arriel’s 16th birthday (another blessing). I hope I can in some way make both those birthdays special; for my dad; a phone call and my sister, so much more.
Please pray; my family and I have a great summer; we handle the heat well; we receive all or many of the desires of our hearts; happy birthdays; enjoyable and successful Vacation Bible School, final youth meeting until September (Friday, July 31st), trip to a theme park (Aug 15th) with the Church, baby shower and more. Share with me your prayer request and I’ll pray for you too.
