The Storm

An ominous storm had been lurking, building until it had grown stronger. Our family has certainly weathered some difficult ones, but maybe not like this one. Shock is still emanating after revelations of recent news. We are devastated and full of anguish…disappointment. It has never been this bad. Our family is unraveling at its seams. There is anger and many of us are filled with anguish.

Daniel & Anny’s Wedding (at Crossline Community Church)
My kid cousin Daniel finally got married! I’m so happy for him. He found a great girl in Anny. A beautiful wedding ceremony. It was also great to see a lot of the family I’ve missed for some time. A very happy moment for our family and it was sorely needed right now as we are all going through some turmoil and family drama right now.

OCTOBER HOTTIE OF THE MONTH: Gwen Stefani

I cannot believe it is already the first day of Fall. Time seems to move much faster as I get older. Perhaps I feel this way because there is still so much I am waiting for, so much more to accomplish. 

Things are some of the things I either wanted to do but did not get the opportunity or things I enjoyed in summers past. Time seems so fleeting. 

I think I’ve narrowed it down thanks to my favorite Tumblr blog right now, All things Europe. Whenever I embark on my first trip to Europe, I hope the following will be my must visit destinations in the Old World.

Rejection & Despair

Feeling so rejected right now. I certainly am dejected and lost. What is clear is that I do not know what the Lord’s plans are for me in this life. All I know is that I have to go through so much rejection, failure and disappointment along its way. It’s been really hard. It would be hard for anyone. I need things to move along. Feel it is long overdue. Only subtle breakthoughs. Just does not seem to happen for me.
