I’m leaving bitterness
Behind this time
I’m cleaning out my mind
There is no space
For the regrets
I will remember to forget
Whoa! 2018 is almost on its way out the door, but I am grateful for all the waking moments, whether they were hard or easy. I am utmost thankful to God, my Rock, and my Anchor, for breath and strength every morning. And…
It’s pouring BUCKETS outside, streets are flooded and traffic is already piling up. It’s going to be hard to get home despite living nearby. Despite the gloomy outlook, I’m sitting at my desk reminiscing when I’ll go outside in the rain and dance.
Anyways, today’s reminder is to enjoy life. Sometimes we have to slow down and take a break (from the internet, TV, blogging, etc) and learn to appreciate what we were given. Nurture your well-being, pick up a new hobby, treat yourself to a “staycation”…
Adventure is out there so go on one. Explore new places, meet new people (if you like meeting people), create life lasting memories and celebrate your happy days.
You’ll find that there won’t be any time to grumble when you’re having the time of your life for you’ll be smiling throughout.
56 means adventure for this guy!
Be grateful that you’re alive to see yet another day and go enjoy life. Leisure and adventure are out there.

Miss Maggie nominated me for the Awesome Blogger Award and who am I to say no? It’s in honor of her birthday and I love her and her blog. Happy early birthday, girl (remember to leave a slice of cake for me)!

My answers to the questions that Maggie asked:
1. What impact do you want to have on the world?
I want to be known as a faithful servant of God. I am here to do His work and to help spread the message of His wonderful love.
2. What is your vision for your blog in the next six months? (future posts, design, etc)
I am looking for a new theme, but nothing seems to grab my attention at the moment, so I’ll see if something appeals to me in the next few months. I’m going to continue my daily posting of scriptures, Sabbath topics of a spiritual nature, book reviews incoming and the 365 Days of Writing challenge. And, yeah, there’ll be more of the world’s greatest movie star as I mentioned in my Amazing April post. I’m also working on some fun topics! 🙂
3. Where is somewhere you would love to go?
*sighs* The City of Love.
4. What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you?
People have done a lot of nice things for me, whether it’s lending me an ear, taking me out, or simply just sharing their love.
5. If you could witness any event of the past, present, or future, what would it be?
The return of the true King of Kings! ❤
6. What is a skill you’d like to learn? Why?
Quite a few actually. I used to draw, but I’ve lost interest over the years, so perhaps, drawing so, I can draw my own characters. Oh, and flying! I’ve always wanted my own helicopter for some
7. What are you most grateful for?
The fact that I’m alive and able to breathe. Thanks go to the Most High!
8. If you had the opportunity to get a message across to a large group of people, what would your message be?
To accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior before it’s too late.
9. Which activities make you lose track of time?
Reading, blogging, and YouTube (yes, I’m a victim of YouTube… I’m learning French there and it’s been quite helpful!)
10. What is the difference between being alive and truly living?
If you’re existing, you’re alive. As for truly living, it’s more than breathing. It’s about breaking comfort zones and being spontaneous with Jesus by your side.
Well, this was fun and I enjoyed the questions! Thanks again, Maggie. Nominees? I consider it open, so have fun!
