I’m glad, you came first

I remember praying for love, and then you, four beautiful souls, came into my life. I realized that God had answered my prayers in unexpected ways, teaching me how to love in new and different ways. Our relationship has grown deeper and more intimate over time, and I have learned so much from our conversations, both shallow and deep. I am constantly amazed by how you navigate difficult seasons and strive to grow in your faith. I am so proud of you all and feel grateful to have you in my life. You are all angels in disguise - Thea, Rina, Mhegan, and Quisha. You have no idea how much of an impact you have made on my life, and I am grateful for each and every one of you.

Thea is here!

Whenever I heard you speaking and it made me realize that you have grown up into a mature lady. Keep your faith strong as there are many exciting things ahead in your life. We may have moments of disappointment with each other, but let's not forget the reason we are here - it is because of Him. Remember to seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you as well. (Matthew 6:33)

Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, and I am also excited for more dates to come.

Ah, this genuine love, too late to realized.

We lose heart, in part, because teaching is a daily exercise in vulnerability. And this profession- my purpose breaks me and heals me.
