The Day I Quit Quoting Verses

I can’t say I am a very religious person. I don’t read my bible as much as I should. I don’t go to church as often as needed or as I used to. At some point in my life, I started a blog called Pondered Thoughts. It is a place where I shared my thoughts…

Women Empowering Women

“Us women, need to see our worth without the approval of anyone. Our worth is not measurable by the clothes we wear, the shape of our body, how beautiful we are or what others think of us. Know your worth and the rest of the world will.” If I asked you right now, how much…

Not Everyone’s Cup of Tea

Be your own kind of beautiful… When I was younger, I worried a lot about what others thought of me. I got upset easily on their opinions, more so if it’s something that is not true, and yes something that I don’t agree with. It took me a whole forty-eight years to change that outlook…

May Flowers

Can you believe it’s May already?!? I was able to explore a new place yesterday and I am so happy for the chance to do that. Very much needed. Being able to photograph nature always has that “feel good” effect on me. Here are just some of the photos I took yesterday. Hope you enjoy!…

Of Rains, Blooms and Sun{Rises}

“When it rains, it pours. Then comes the blooms. And the best part about it, after every storm, the sun rises. And so are you.” It’s been a soaking – rainy days here in the Carolinas the past few days. To say that it’s a welcome sight to see the sun shining again is an…

Forty Plus Eight

“Each birthday, I count not the years but the blessings given, lessons learned, tears and laughter in between and people who stayed within.” Eight days ago, I celebrated my birthday in solitude. It’s been two years now, I think, since I had my birthday set in private on a social media platform. This year, I…

What’s in your Treasure Chest?

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21 We define treasures as a quantity of valued objects or items. Anything of extraordinary amount; priceless. Does it only involve only precious jewelries, heirlooms, expensive cars, branded clothes, big houses, Louis Vuitton purses? Degrees or honorable titles perhaps? If that is the…

When Jesus Takes The Wheel

I thought I knew who I was. And I’m pretty sure I have things figured out. But then, I took a wrong turn and realized I needed Him to figure out who I am. I think letting Jesus take full control of our lives is the easiest thing we could do, right? I mean, all…

Truth Hurts

Truth hurts. Failure to speak the truth harms the soul. Speaking for the tuth, though painful, frees the spirit. My last full post was dated December 30, 2017. The post that I made after that, I mentioned about having a hard time expressing my emotions. I’ve realized that this is far from the truth. I…

Wintry Air

Above is just one of the many winter photos I collected for the past two years. I know it’s been a while since my last post. I am having a difficult time right now expressing my emotions. I do have  a lot to share and tell but not finding the right words and emotions to…
