Recap: the year that was 2010

I would like to say thank you to all you who have visited my wittle baby blog and commented and made me laugh and smile! I must say that i am quite lucky in that respect! My heart flutters with delight as I think about you all!! Love and blessings!  

Now onto the recap of the year that was 2010, I would like to say that this has been a really wonderful year. but that wouldn’t entirely be the truth, it would be better characterized as a rather hard year. No doubt there were plenty of  joyous moments and shocking moments and heart wrenching moments. and though the me in me who places more onus on the bad than the good. there was a lot of good; I would like to say that I learned A LOT about God, learned A LOT about myself, learned A LOT about choice, hope, truth, love, dreams and pushing pass the difficult to see the miracle.

These are some of the Things I Have Learned This year:

  • God is bigger than you can imagine. kinder than you give him credit for. and closer than you realize. 
  • Helping other people helps me.
  • we all encounter jerks, a** holes, bozos and etc…don’t let those ones ruin you for all the rest! ;)
  • “she opens her mouth in wisdom And on her tongue is the law of kindness.” [proverbs 31:26]  this is who i want to be!
  • courage doesn’t mean you’re not afraid.
  • do something that makes you come alive. if you dont remember what that is. start with lunch or dinner with your besties. and they’ll remind you.
  • Thinking that life is greener on the other side is stupid. my lawn is just fine. in fact its actually beautiful upon closer inspection.
  • saying you’re a christian and actually being one are two distinct categories. one costs nothing and the other costs you everything.
  • with God, one door close and 3 open. believe that!
  • Assuming is stifling. truth is freeing.
  • seeing your world as glass half full is always the better choice.
  • Money does not make anyone happy. but having money sure does make life a lot more manageable.
  • learn to be resourceful
  • Regret , Wishful thinking, Fantasy, Shame, Guilt, Defeat, Negativity, Bitterness, Unforgiveness, Jealousy, Anger, Self pity are all curable diseases. but left unchecked, uncrossed [ not a word i made it up. means not submitted at the foot of the cross, and unrepented of will kill you.
  • “deal with those thoughts, habits, attitudes and behaviors that have been holding you back so that you can step into the promises of God for your life and the purpose for which you were created” – christine caine
  • take off the glasses, unbutton your shirt, get out of the box and Let God be all he is and wants to be in your life. I’m sure he will dazzle you! he’s quite amazing that way!
  • he’s really not that into you but there is someone who is kinder and finer and awesomer and funnier and sexier and more adjectives…who is. believe that! :)
  • growing and moving forward really is the best revenge.
  • dont just talk about it. be about it.
  • being your own person isn’t overrated.
  • My dreams aren’t made real until they’re HIS.
  • Keeping this blog supports my personal development.
  • Trying to look good limits my life. Trying to be beautiful mmmm now thats the fruit of life!
  • Worrying solves nothing.
  • Get a Life. your own life. all the people you admire have one.
  • “how can i love my neighbor as myself, if I don’t love myself?” -christa black
  • Complaining is silly. Either act or forget.
  • Everybody thinks they are right.
  • no one ever said it would be easy just that the view would be worth the climb.
  • There is a very thin line between being funny and rude and being “real” and mean. choose wisely.
  • its okay to believe in happily ever after and prince charming. just keep in mind that some assembly and elbow grease is required.
  • be fierce. be fabulous. be a nerd. be silent. be adventurous. be inquisitive. be beautiful. be courageous. be kind. be outrageous. be funny. be a sister. be a friend. be a lover. be a lady. give yourself room to be all you are.
  • acknowledge your feelings but dont stay there.
  • to believe is to begin

So 2010, its been real. Adios sucka!!

oh ms. palermo

Olivia Palermo, who i often referenced on this blog here, here and here, is drum roll please not only staring in her own reality show BUT launching a clothing line. whaaat? am i the only one excited to see what she comes up with? if she designs as well as she styles herself, it should be a pretty excellent collection.

p.s. as much as people hated your character in the city, it seems you’re the only one making moves after the show. interesting.

who you belong to

HE is by Priscilla Shirer.

when you feel like you can’t handle the task at hand and you ask yourself, “girl, who’s your daddy?”. because i remember when Jerry said that to me and i got a good look at him. i felt secure, i felt taken care of not because of me but because of who i belonged to. and what if you got a good look at your God, remembering who he is and that you belong to him. listen, i think until the Lord stops me from taking platforms and ministering to women, I will say this until the day that I die. reminding myself as I do when i am quietly alone and i look myself in the mirror and say “girl, who is your daddy”. you know what i tell myself. i’ll say girl:

He is the first and the last. the beginning and the end. he’s the keeper of creation and the creator of all. He’s the architect of the universe and the manager of all time. He always was, always is and always will be. unmoved, unchanged, undefeated and never undone. He was bruised but brought healing. He was peirced but eased pain. He was persecuted but brought freedom. He was dead and brings life. He was risen to bring power and He reigns to bring peace. The world can’t understand him. Armies can’t defeat him. Schools can’t explain him and Leaders they can’t ignore him. Herod couldn’t kill him. Nero couldnt crush him. the new age can not replace him and oprah cant explain him away. she can’t. she can’t do it.

You remind yourself that He is Light, He is Love, He is Longevity and He is the Lord. He is goodness and kindness and faithfulness and He is God. He is holy and righteous and powerful and pure. His ways are right. His word eternal. His will unchanging and his mind is on us. He’s our savior, our guide, our peace, our joy , our comfort, our Lord and he rules our lives.

I serve him because his bond is love, his yolk is easy, his burden is light and his goal for us is abundant life. I follow him because he is the wisdom of the wise, the power of the powerful, the ancient of days, the ruler of rulers, the leader of all leaders. His goal is a relationship with me. He’ll never leave you, never forsake you, never mislead you, never forget you, never overlook you and never cancel your appointment in his appointment book. NEVER. when you fall, he will lift you up. when you fail, he’ll forgive you. when you’re weak, he’s strong. when you’re lost, he’s your way. when you’re afraid, he’s your courage. when you stumble, he will steady you. when you’re hurt, he’s going to heal you. when you’re broken, he will mend you. when you’re blind, he will lead you. when you’re hungry, he will feed you. when you face trails, he’s with you. when i face persecution, he sheilds me. when i face problems, he will comfort me. when I face loss, he will provide for me. and when we face death, he will carry us all home to meet him. HE IS EVERYTHING. for everybody, everywhere, everytime and in every way. He is your God. and that sisters is who you belong to.
