what it's all about

I am on a journey -like you, I'm sure. A personal journey, a spiritual journey. A journey about passions, growth, and living. I don't have a good memory, but I value my experiences. It's very strange when you realize that you are being shaped constantly, but ultimately only remember some of the reasons why you are the person you're becoming. I find that when things resonate within me, writing about them helps me to better develop my opinions about them, and to remember them. Sometimes, it's the simple act of looking back and reminding myself where I've been that is all I need to move forward with confidence. That's why I write. Thank you for joining me.

I have not been feeling my hair lately.

This mess on top of my head is just not doing anything for me. Doesn't look like locs, doesn't look like curls. It just sits there, a plump, frizzy mess.

I will retwist this week sometime, and hopefully it will make me feel a bit better about it. I am trying to reduce the cost of the regular salon maintenance my stre-e-etching out the time between visits, so hopefully I find my own maintainence routine works for me. 

On a separate, happy note, our offer on a new house was accepted! The permits are being ordered, design options being decided on, and building should begin in about a month! We also found tenants to rent our current house for the next two years!

Can I just tell you that we were really not sure if/how any of this was going to come together. Plus, my husband's engine blew. We prayed hard, and God came through for us! I guess the things we wanted, He wanted for us. The offer was accepted, tenants found, and car fixed all within 48 hours! I give Him all the praise. I am excited to see what He has in store for us on that side of town, and how we can use our new home to further His will. Our new tenants don't go to a church, and I hope we can be a positive influence on them for the small amount of time that we are in contact with them.

See, ending with that was a good idea. I already feel better. :)

  1. Congrats on all the good news, and it's awesome to know I have another sister in Christ. I love your blog, btw. And I like your hair! I know what it's like to get fed up with your natural hair. I'm feeling kind of blaise about mine right now. :-)
