Hi there! 💛 I hope you’re having a beautiful day. 🙂 I have decided to begin writing mini reviews of books again. Sharing why I enjoyed the books I’ve finished reading is an encouragement to me to keep reading, which is a good thing, since I have bookshelves full of books!
When I think, I think too much.
Things and situations, trials and circumstances …
They stay on my mind for far too long.
I’ll take something simple that I should hope for the best in …
But I analyze it instead.
Hi there! ❤ I hope you’re having a beautiful day. 🙂 We’re four days into my decision to blog every day of this month, haha, and so far, it’s going well!
I’ve been wanting to share a post like this for a while, and I decided that it was time to do it this October. I hope that you enjoy!
Hi there! ❤ If you’re seeing this post pop up in your Reader, then I am certain that you’re completely surprised! For lack of a better introduction … I’m back!!!
I Thought I Was Done
Two months ago, I shared a post that told everyone who came across it that I was finished with this blog. It made me so sad to post, but I also knew that it was the right thing to do – the Lord confirmed it in my heart.
I spent these last several weeks believing it was a permanent decision … for the most part.
It brought me peace to say that I was done, and limiting my interactions with others online was what I needed. However, while I may have been “okay” to be done with a blog that I had previously adored, it was in an act of surrender to the Lord’s will that I went through with it.
Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful Sunday. ❤ It has been quite a while since I wrote a post on my language-learning journey, which means that this is the first time in a long time that the ‘Spanish’ category on my blog has been added to, haha!
In the year and a half that I’ve been seriously teaching myself Central American Spanish through the wonderful app that is Memrise, I have occasionally taken long, unplanned breaks. This has assisted me not only in continuing to love the language, but also in my dedication toward learning it.
Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful Monday. ❤ This past Saturday, I planned out all the post ideas I’d love to share throughout this whole upcoming week. I’m excited to write them and post them – they’re going to be awesome!
To start off this epic bout of productivity (haha), I brought an uncompleted post idea I’ve wanted to write for a while out of my phone’s notes. I’m very happy to get to share the completed version with you today. ❤ Enjoy!
Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ The idea for this post came to me yesterday while exploring the Bible app on my phone. I came across a verse that has been both a comfort and a hindrance in my walk with the Lord over the years. The verse I’m talking about is Psalm 37:4, where the psalmist tells us that when we delight ourselves in the Lord, He will give us the desires of our heart.
I’d like to talk about this verse because it’s one of those promises of the Lord that can be easily misunderstood. Not quite getting the context can lead one to believe that when we pray for something fervently, and then still don’t get it, it’s tempting to think that this Bible verse is a lie.
I’m here to reassure you that it’s not.
Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ❤ This morning, I was thinking about what post I’d like to write and share today, and within moments, I knew in my heart that this was the one!
I love adding to post series I’ve been keeping up with for a while, and the last post I shared on this topic was last September, where I celebrated blogging / Guatemala-dreaming for eight months! (Check out that post here.) Today’s milestone is quite a bigger one, and I’m so grateful to be able to say that these combined passions are still very relevant in my life. Thank you so much for reading – I hope you enjoy!
