To my journal buddies,

It's kinda weird to have new friends out there but isn't it amazing that journals connect us? Indeed, God passes us to one another. I knew some of your stories whenever you share your comments and whenever you send me a message and I realized we're in this together. Perhaps, we just have different pens but we have the same Author. We might be living in different plots, others are in the climax part of their story, while some are in the rising action, maybe others are resolving conflicts, and perhaps some are still meeting new characters, while others are finding the setting of their story, and perhaps few are already in the last page of their story.

I just hope and pray that you find comfort, peace, and safe space here. We're all under construction- we can't skip mistakes, failings, and fears at times but may we all be reminded that God can still use our stories. I know I do have many things to learn and unlearn in this life but you never know how much it means to me whenever you read my journals and the fact that you've been saving money just to purchase my book and include it to your necessities. I do appreciate all of you but may you always seek Him first and read His Word because it all comes from my quiet moments with Him. I know He will also reveal Himself to you when you seek Him like treasure hidden in a field, like a merchant in a search of fine pearls, and like a net that was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind. Seek Him first.

The new season is unfolding and new path is uncovered. Thank you for allowing these journals to take up space in your souls, into your lives- my journal buddies out there. Warm hugs!

See you soon everyone!

Your journal buddy,

Trust the Great Author, so let's just embrace our femininity and this season of waiting and praying.

I hate Mondays

When burn out hits you, it's easier to complain than to be grateful.

Learn to play

I realized I need to stop first before playing, I need to enter His presence, quiet my soul and let Him fill me.

Stepping out in Faith

Inhaling His grace and savoring the beauty of life. And I pray that my journals will transcend into the spaces that need them the most.
