Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Happy Thursday to you!

When you think of the corruption and injustice that pervades our world, a grateful heart is vital! Certainly, you cannot believe that you are surviving in this life without God. If you are arrogant enough to believe that you are self-made, you’re in a dangerous position. For downfall is the fate of the proud. The truth is this life provides no security. Security can only be found in God. There’s nothing better than having God’s presence in your daily life to instruct, guide, and protect you. For this reason, I never let a week pass without sharing a weekly gratitude list. I’ve enjoyed years and years of God’s faithfulness; thus, the least I can do is acknowledge Him publicly via this awesome platform. Below is my gratitude list for the week. My only request is that you participate in this life-changing exercise. In the comment section, share [at least] one thing you are grateful for this week. There are many people that will be encouraged and empowered as they read our lists. So don’t be timid, join in!

Romans 2:4 Or do you despise the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience? Do you not realize that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?
