Whip Maaah Hair

After months of staring at my dull, dry, and flat hair, I finally got a haircut… AHHH! What a relief! 
Thank God the stylist knew what she was doing! We all have our experiences with incompetent stylists! Like you show them how short you want it, they cut even more. WHAT THE! Or they cut your hair using the wrong technique or they cut it unevenly! What's worse is if he/ she is the senior stylist! Ack gets me all riled up.
Anyhoo. . .

...got a tad crazy as my sister (ahem, photo credit goes to her) took pictures of me...
She said, get in front of the fan! WAHA...

Fun Free Saturday! (Cont.)

So I took pictures of my sissy and Ms. Tabitha because I’m good like that (plus their outfits looked cute together... The colors and all) LOL…
Trying my best here, pals. Support me, would ya?
{{ahhhhhh... feelin like a pro}}

Pray for Japan

Quite frankly, I haven't been mindful of what's going on in Japan because I don't get to watch the news (or TV) anymore... and I've been caught up with my own little issues that are TEENY TINY compared to what others are going through.

Let's continue to pray.

Idols of Bling

"In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as he saw fit."  Judges 18:6

The Book of Judges records a dark period of about three hundred years of the Israelites. The cycle of sinning, deliverance, and repentance is prominent throughout the entire book because of how the Israelites repeatedly rebelled against God, but He would intervene by raising up judges or elders to save the nation from the hands of their enemies. Once the judge dies, the people would return to their evil ways by turning to idols and worshipping their false gods.

In chapter 17, Micah and his mother had good intentions of worshipping God, but it was not in accordance to the Lord’s teachings. They fashioned their consecrated silver into an idol and hired a Levite whose duties were only to be performed in the tabernacle. But because the Levite conceded to his offer, Micah interpreted this as God’s favor upon his life because he worshipped Him through the idols.

Often times we have good intentions but the way we do things is not in accordance to God’s will for us. For instance, sometimes we think that piling up on our ministries is the right thing to do because we are serving God yet we take our other responsibilities such school or work for granted. We do things that we think is right in the eyes of the Lord, but in reality God is not pleased.

It is essential for us to grow in knowledge of God’s word in order for us to understand and truly know how we should live our lives as Christians and how to make godly choices. By spending time reading the Bible, we will be able to strengthen our convictions and know what is true in Gods eyes.

Mr. Tom-Toms.

Last Saturday, I brought these sparkly bad boys home! I am very pleased with it because they’re like paper and they’re super comfortable! It’s like floating on air with sparkles! Plus, I love the idea of giving back to the community in Argentina. I admire Mr. Tom for starting the One for One Movement. Can you imagine getting your first pair of shoes? I can’t. Life for me is too blessed, but unfortunately the more you have, the more you want. LIFE is never content enough (hence why I bought these shoes in the first place ---sigh) But anyway, since I kind of ruined the mood of being joyful about it and now feeling slightly guilty, the lesson I can learn from this experience is to be thankful for every bit of blessing I have. You just have to.
