  1. “Success is not a race, we are blessed in different ways at different times”

    I love this. I am currently at that point in my life where it seems like everyone around me is getting successful and seems that I am still stuck trying to figure out what my life purpose is. I trust God’s timing to show me signs of why I am really here.


    1. I can relate. I am 46 and no where where I would like to be but then again, I am thankful that I am not where I was and I am trusting God to move me from here to where he wants me to be. Yes indeed we are blessed in different ways and at different times and someone’s blessing is not mine, so I don’t compare myself to others. Thanks for stopping by and reading my post😘


  2. I really enjoy this. Most of them are what I live by. I am a survivor of domestic violence, and for years I was living in the dark but I have learnt the true meaning of forgiveness.


  3. I cannot live without God in my life and alone time is very important! Those two stuck out to me. Am building my relationship with God everyday and I feel so much more at peace lately. And I always need alone time ..otherwise I would go crazy! lol


    1. I know, right? I don’t even want to imagine my life without God. I don’t think it’s even possible. Life only makes sense with God
