Thank You

It's May.

I've been blogging for four years now. Wow! Who would have imagined such a thing? I have to admit that although I'm in Law Enforcement, I am really a shy person. A voice was something I never had ( or used rather) but writing and journaling has always been like breathing for me. I have over thirty or so journals to prove it. Lol

My life has not only transformed dramatically since, but has exceeded any and all expectations that I may have had in a ginormous and public way. Just to name a few:
I am saved and I am single
I am celibate and I am worthy
I have surrendered and I am trusting
My four legged best friend went to doggie heaven
I have quit being a slave to overtime
I moved to the beach and cry still...
I am mentoring and volunteering
I am on my way to publishing my 2nd book
I simply love, love, love my Church
I am so over the thyroid thing and living healthier
I look and feel absolutely fabulous :)
I am going to Alaska for my 48th birthday
I am retiring in 3 years completely debt free
And sins are forgiven

His grace has surely covered me in all areas-spiritually, physically and emotionally. And I would like to personally thank YOU for coming along...supporting, encouraging and uplifting me. We were not meant to travel this journey alone.

Surely I am not the "girl" you met in May of 2008. He promised to supply all my needs and I BELIEVE Him. Truly I tell you, my spirit is free. With Him, all things are new.

Love for a great day!

Miz, I truly appreciate your visits, comments and the similar roads we've traveled. I just love how God has brought people into my life that I would not have normally met.

Peace and many blessings to you.
With love,

I've admiring your usage of ginormous in a sentence. Lol.

I feel you on the level of growth since posting one's first blog. Isn't it something how we all reflect upon our writings and notice the great distance between the first and last?

Not to sound nosy, but why do you cry when it's clear that you're in a good place in your life?

Sweet friend, they are tears of joy and gratitude. To walk along the shore everyday and to bask in the sun-gifts and night's sky is so amazing to me. And my goodness, a full blown rainbow across the bay...priceless.

My heart be still.

Love for a great day!

BTW ... You don't know this, but I can cry on commercials. Lol

Hi there Carey, you've redecorated again and I can't find the comment section. Lol

Or my mom's cooking is so good, I'm falling asleep. She cooked for me. :)

Really appreciate you thinking of me today!

Ms Myriam, my son and I were just reminiscing...we spent a week there last October. It's beautiful here also. Love you and looking forward to a newborn photo and a hug.

Sent with lots of love,

Myriam said...

Happy Monday!
Just finished my reading Prov. 2 and this song was in my mind a lot

Baby is scheduled to make his arrival next Tuesday (May 22) and you will definitely get a pic and a virtual hug.
Thank you so much for the prayers and know that you are loved dearly.
Have a blessed day!

Don said...

Thank you for clarifying FSB. I can't possibly imagine you shedding tears of sorrow.

Hello Butterfly...

I am honored you have invited me to share your journey of life... You are correct you aren't the person from 2008... you have moved to be the person God created... opening your life to others sharing God's mercies, grace and love... you have inspired me to pick up the pen and share MY love for our father...on this journey of life... Love Angie

Myriam said...

Hello there-
Here you go:
can't wait to see it.

Many thanks for the prayers as the day draws near. If you sitll have the same phone #....will send you a pic of baby Ethan.

God bless and can't wait for us to meet one day.
Yours truly

Angie, I love you with deep gratitude in all that you've shown me. God reunited us at the perfect season in our lives. He is who He says He is.

Myriam, I'm so looking forward to coming to NYC to see you and your extended family. God had blessed you in a big way and I'm blessed to have been there for a part of your journey. I remember the emails we shared years ago. And wow, look at us now!

Don, you're so right. It's been quite some time since I've shedded tears of sorrow.

Love to all for stopping by,
Warm hugs all around :)
