I love confetti! While coming up for the new signature for the blog (which you’ll see shortly), I got led to use confetti, and I was very pleased with the outcome (although it may be subject to change in the future). I bless God for the new signature.

May God’s peace and grace be upon you in 2020. 💙

A thankful blog! 🆕

Image result for gif salut

Hello WP fam! I trust that you’re getting ready for 2020 and I pray that it’ll be a blessing for you. I am currently working on a new blog and it’s quite a work in progress as it is with opening a new blog. Coming up with the name this time around was easy for the blog is going to be base on thankfulness, so I ended up naming it Gratitude is an Attitude.

The goal is to journal thankfulness every day in 2020. 😁

Here is the link to what the blog is about and how it came about:

Being thankful throughout

Here is the link to the blog itself:

I hope that you’ll join me for a year of thanksgiving in 2020. 💙

Coffee Tuesday! ☕

The next step in this journey.

Salut! And welcome back to this little space on the internet. 

2019, huh? I had so many plans for the blog but in the end, many of them were not to be. Now, I look ahead to see where blogging will take me in 2020.

The journey continues?

God has plans for this blog, so yes, the journey is going to continue. I’ve already sketched ideas for certain topics and in doing so, I got a chance to improve my graphics game. Thank You, God! Creativity comes from the Creator after all and I enjoy discovering new ways to create things.

A few blog plans thus far:

Bible studies, monthly scriptures…

Studying the Bible is not a pastime, it’s a habit and the more time I spend in the Word, the more I learn or discover. We’ve only studied Genesis thus far on LPM, but I do plan on posting study notes from Exodus when the time is right. As for the weekly scriptures, they’ll now become monthly from January.

…and a devotional?

I’ve always wanted to feature a devotional monthly study on the blog and it looks like I’ll be getting an opportunity soon. I’ve prayed about it and the study was already revealed to me so bless God for this. I’ll reveal the Book which God led me to when the time is right. It’s not going to be anytime soon, though.

New/revamp categories 

Image result for gif tom cruise reading a book

The categories are something I tend to mention during these kinds of wrap up. It’s most likely that some of these categories would be renamed and some might be dropped. One such category is French Friday which is most likely to be renamed. And yes, there are a few new categories on its way which will be revealed in due time. Also, me dearest, if you’re reading this, I plan to start doing book reviews again. 😁

366 days of gratitude?

Image result for gif thankful

Ruth over on plantedbylivingwater is currently doing 365 days of thanks and it’s a wonderful reminder to be grateful. I’ll love to participate as well, but I’m not sure how it’s going to work out as yet. However, I am seriously considering opening a blog just for this sole purpose, so I can journal 366 things to be grateful for in 2020. 

Posting schedule

Where it concerns randomly posted topics, nothing has changed. However, I got led to create a blogging planner for the first time since I’ve started blogging. I’ve never had the need for one before, but God has many things planned for this blog in 2020 so most likely I’ll be using the planner to schedule posts. 

Here’s to 2020!

Coffee Tuesday! ☕

A little blog update.

Salut! And welcome back to this little space on the internet. 

An Update

I haven’t been active as I should posting new material and reading your blogs lately for I’ve been busy with so many things. To be honest, I’ve thought about closing the blog many times, but God still wants me to carry on His online ministry so I’ll be here a while longer just not as active as before.  

Claiming La Petit/e Muse?

I must have told this story a few times on the blog, but when I first registered the name of the blog, it was supposed to be La Petite Muse. However, WP said that the name was already taken. I really wanted the “petite” to be a part of the title even if it meant using the masculine form which is “petit” which can also mean petty, insignificant or minor. Anyway, to make a long story short, I recently checked to see if La Petite Muse was available as I’ve been changing the logo and designs from “petit” to the rightful feminine form of “petite”. It’s still unavailable, but I’ll be going with the rightful form of “petite” from now where it concerns signatures and designs.

And that’s the tea. Er, I mean, story.

Stories and book reviews

I want to start doing book reviews again, but there’s a problem: I have not been reading lately. I also want to start posting the stories I promised (a few months back), but I put that on the back burner until perhaps next year be it the will of God.

More categories?

When will I stop coming up with new categories?! I spoke about future new categories in the last blog update, but at the moment, I don’t have any plans to fully introduce them just yet. And I’m yet to write about that Maracas trip.

Experimenting with siggies

Due to not having enough time to sit and create the designs I want at the moment, I went with this for one of the current signatures:

Although I like the dancing cat and the butterflies, I feel as if the color scheme is all wrong. I plan to design a proper signature soon, but when the time is right.

Only time will tell if this blog will eventually be a thing of the past, but at the moment, I’ll continue what the Lord has in store for me. I apologize for this boring update, but it had to be done.

Thank you, Yvette! 💙

Image result for gif yvette

Yvette over on priorhouse.blog took the time to remind me of a recurring problem with my blog: the link was not showing up for a while now – since last month or so – and I paid no real attention to it. Silly me! Yesterday, she reminded me yet again that although my comment was showing up, the link back to my blog was still not working which resulted in the blog not showing up in her Reader.

So, it was time to get down to fix the persisting problem.

Image result for gif fix

At first, I Googled the possible reason behind the problem and I was told it was Gravatar and perhaps the image was poorly rated or something like that. Anyway, to make a long story short, after going around in circles, I eventually consulted the Director of this blog (God) and the Holy Spirit guided me, showing me that the problem was STARING me in the eye all along.

And just like that, the problem was fixed and the link back to the blog was working; thank You, God! I should have consulted God first. Despite yesterday being hectic, I have no excuse as to why I didn’t speak to God first. Had I done so, I wouldn’t have run around in circles for two hours or so!

And thank you, Yvette, for reminding me of the problem for you encouraged me to resolve this issue once and for all.

Midnight thoughts: vacation 🌙

Related image

I’m actually on vacation – have been since last week and I’m unplugged from everything work, that when I return, this is going to be my default expression…

Image result for gif i have no memory of this place

It’s been pretty restful and eye-opening thus far, as God has been revealing new things to me. I couldn’t have asked for a better vacay! Thank You, God!

Please note that most of these midnight posts are meaningless. My train of thought can be pretty random or distracting, and I just thought that it’ll be fun to share some.

Now, it’s time to catch some z’s! Night, world.

Ohhhh is adorable ♥○♥

Midnight thoughts about blogging 🌙

Related image

I love blogging, but lately, it’s hard to keep up with not only your blog but also this one. I took breaks in between from late last year until now and also tried new categories (just to keep motivated), but it feels as if blogging is going to come to an end for me soon. Don’t get me wrong, I love reading your blogs and I am super excited for some of the new categories to be featured, but I feel as if it’s time to move on. I’ll eventually know when it’s time to stop and say goodbye.

I now take this opportunity to thank you for all your support and patience. May God continue to bless you.

Une petite pause ✋

*Ponders* According to how fast I say the word ‘hiatus’ it kind of sounds like ‘hi haters’. 🤔 Or maybe it’s just me? 

Related image

😆😂

Anyways, mesdames et messieurs, this is to inform you that I’ll be missing in action for a week or three. Yes, you heard right. I am taking a break away from blogging although it seems like I’ve just returned. But it’s only for a short while. I don’t have anything scheduled except Scripture of the Week.

So, you know what I’m going to do: take my jacket off…

Image result for gif tom cruise is daddy

…and relax. Actually, I won’t be relaxing. I have a lot of things that I need to do including projects, therefore, this break is actually going to be beneficial in getting those things out of the way. Also, I need to spend some alone time with God so it’s going to be a reflective, self-examine and cleansing period for me.

Image result for gif michael jackson look at yourself

I’m going to miss you, but we’ll reconcile soon. I know the last time I said this (last December) and I ended up returning later than the planned date (April instead of January).

May God bless you. 💙
