Hi.

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

Happy Friday to you!

This week has been a wonderful manifestation of God’s faithfulness. Consequently, there is no way I could let the day end without expressing gratitude. In 2014, I lost two relatives within the span of one month. By the end of the year, I was unemployed. If you are an avid reader of this website (or subscriber to my YouTube channel), you were able to see how I journeyed through one of the most challenging seasons of my life. Every day was far from a piece of cake. However, I learned so much about God and His love for me in that season. Therefore, I will forever appreciate every challenge that 2014 presented to me.

Today, I am employed and still able to interact with you via wonderful online platforms. In addition, you all continue to support via the purchase of my t-shirts and poetry book. Ultimately, God is so amazing! He always goes above and beyond to demonstrate the depth of His love. As a result, I will continue to share these weekly gratitude lists no matter how busy life gets. I want to encourage someone who is going through a time of sorrow and grief. I want to uplift those who are weary and ready to give up.

There’s no time for giving up! There’s only time to trust God and lean on the support of those who truly love you. I am one of them. The following list are things that I am grateful for this week. I encourage you to leave a comment stating at least one reason you are grateful today. Remember: God will never leave you nor forsake you. He’s with you in every circumstance. With your limited strength, continue to give God thanks. He will honor your sacrifice of thanksgiving in ways that you cannot imagine.

Psalm 68:5 A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy habitation. 6 God sets the solitary in families; He brings out those who are bound into prosperity; but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, The God of our salvation! Selah 20 Our God is the God of salvation; and to GOD the Lord belong escapes from death.
