A Glimpse of Mi Vida...

It started with a missions trip to Camden, where my life and perspective were changed and where this blog began. Life has been a roller coaster filled with its ups and downs and I'm excited for the adventure and discovering what God has in store, even though I really dislike roller coasters... I am a Lady in Waiting...

Best of 2011

Joining Shanda at A Pause of the Path I am highlighting  my "best" blog...

Being a new writer and discovering that I love it after taking a several year hiatus from blogging... in May I was encouraged by the lovely Jackie and Shanda to join them in doing an alphabet blog where each day we would post pertaining to a letter in the alphabet. What started out as a great way to keep me writing, busyness got the best of me and what was suppose to be a 26 day adventure stretched out to almost three months. I am proud of the results however.

So below in an except from my blog titled, "Ll = Lady and Love Letters".

"Last year, amidst tears and worship songs in my car past 10pm at night in my driveway, I broke it. I broke my alabaster box at His feet. I took my alabaster box filled with my body, soul, dreams…everything… I entrusted all those things to Him. With Jesus as my Lord, I can joyfully walk on the path that God has for me. The Lord is so worthy of that honor of me giving my all to him. It must be ALL or NOTHING.

I have played the game of giving God things halfheartedly and my life and heart were only half-filled with His love and desires. That never worked, so I must give Him my all, my everything, and do “nothing” but allow God to work.


I have discovered Christ is my Bridegroom. I gain fullness in Him, not in a MAN. My days are filled with HIM, not a him. My time is filled with conversations of Him, thoughts of Him, and the desires of His heart and what He wants for me. He has made me into a woman of diligence as well
."

With that blog I had over 300 pageviews... my best ever considering this blog has primarily just been for me and my adventures...
Thanks for the support and keep on reading.
Happy Blogging and a Happy New Year!!!

Jenn,

Nice to meet you! Thanks for stopping by my blogpost "Smoldering Brown Eyes and a Neck that Smells of Toothpaste." I'm so glad you saw Jesus in it!

Thank you for your blog repost here of the Lady and Loveletters. Whew, the breaking of the alabaster jar at Jesus' feet, pouring out all our dreams and fears and hopes is a powerful image, for married, single, or widowed people. Thanks.

So, tell me about Peru! What's the story behind that photo? And what did you ever write using a Q? :)
