It’s All In The Details

We have had the privilege of visiting the Library of Congress last Saturday and the details from the outside of the building, all the way to the interior design, is just outstanding! Can you imagine how much work went into completing such meticulous designs? Which makes me wonder, how much work does God set aside…

Riding Through Life

Nothing is ever too late. I never learned how to bike. My brothers didn’t get their first bike until they were in high school. I tried learning. But then, I was told that biking can take away a girl’s virginity and you know how important that was back then? So I quit. That.. and my…

The Day I Finally Grew Up

“I always thought I was a grown-up. It turned out, being a grown-up requires more than my thoughts that I am one…” I wish I could tell you exactly when that was….or what brought about the change. One day, I just woke up feeling like a different person. It’s that change that kind of slaps…

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…

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.

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…

New Kind of Brave

“When I am afraid, I put my trust in You.” Psalm 56:3 Have you ever heard of “word prompt”? It is where you have a certain word for the new year. I have never done it nor even tried. Tonight, as I was browsing online, I saw a post about it. And I clicked on…

Christmas I Remember

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger….. Growing up, I remember our Christmases were not festive and elaborate. We didn’t get a tree,…
