If we expected all things to happen on our timing, our lives would be a hot mess…that I know for sure. How? Well, I’ve had plenty of “ah-ha” moments in my life when I think back to a situation where things did not go according to plan and thought life was over as I knew it until something bigger and better came along…looking back, thankful and saying “well look at God!!!”. So when things don’t go as planned, don’t fret, just sit back and watch God work His wonders in your life. Your “ah-ha” moment is coming. His time is always the right time. That’s what I call perfect timing!
“The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation. I am the LORD; in its time I will do this swiftly.”

Happy Sunday! ❤️xo
God has blessed you with a very special gift inside and it’s up to you to discover what it is and bring it to life. It’s a gift that is unique to you. It may be similar to what others are doing but when you learn how to use it and apply it in life, your special touch to make it grow is what makes it unique to you. So whatever it is that you feel you’re talented at, whatever your passion or drive, nurture it and bring it out, explore your options on how to make it grow and watch God work his magic in your life. Always remember that your blessings are yours alone so if God blessed you with it, He will see you through it!

Happy Sunday! ❤️xo
Today, I simply want to take a moment to reflect on my past experiences and thank God for what He has done for me. I also thank God for what He is currently doing in my life.
Although it’s very important to live in the moment, it’s also great to plan ahead and envision your future. Picture it big & bright and filled with dreams coming true. It always starts with a vision and I thank God for that vision.
What’s your vision for 2016 and beyond?
Happy Sunday! ❤️xo
Have you ever wondered about those past moments where things happened a certain way not knowing why at the time only to realize sometime later that it was for your own benefit…well that is God taking control everytime. How amazing it is to know that He has your back. You may be going through a tough situation right now but God will see you through if you let Him and trust in Him. He wants you to have that “ooohhh, I get it now” moment so this may be where God has you right now but the plans He has for you are far greater than you can ever imagine. Someday you will understand.
Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” (John 13:7 NIV)
Happy Sunday! ❤️xo
Thank you God for your everlasting love! Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice! You are the reason for this season! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
(John 3:16 NIV)
Happy Good Friday!❤️xo
Happy New Year everyone!
As we embark in this New Year, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for a wonderful 2014 and I look forward to sharing an amazing 2015 with you. Thank you for your continued love & support. I appreciate you and wish you the very best for 2015. May you (we) create precious new memories filled with love, happiness, success and dreams fulfilled (all in good health).
Dear God, thank you for your unconditional love, for my amazing family, for my wonderful man, for my loved ones, for my health, for my home, for my career, for my experiences, trials & tribulations, for all of you and for all of my blessings. Thank you for everything!
What are you thankful for?
Thank you God for all of your blessings, your unconditional love, your everlasting presence and your favour. You bless me more than I deserve and I’m forever grateful. I can’t thank you enough for all you have done for me in life but I will continue to say it for the rest of my days…Thank You!
I read this quote by Jillian Michaels and thought: Yeh…why not me!? I couldn’t agree with this more. We are so quick to criticize ourselves over any and everything, instead we should be our own cheerleader/supporter. We often think that we are not deserving of all things that are good but we are. We easily doubt ourselves but we should know that we can do anything we set our minds (and hearts) to. We expect the worst outcome in situations but we have the power to change our mindset to think otherwise.
Don’t let your blessings pass you by. Don’t pass off any more opportunities thinking you’re not ready because you are. Don’t block what God wants for you because it’s meant for you! Go after what your heart desires. Follow your dreams! Ask yourself “Why not me?!”.
Why feel resentment or envy because of someone else’s success or advantage? Especially when you don’t know what that someone has been through to get to where they are. You have not gone through their struggle, pain, heartache or experienced what they have. Their blessings are their own and they probably wouldn’t fit you anyway. It’s ok to appreciate their blessings and use it as motivation to work towards your own but know that you will have to go through your personal journey to get there. Remember that what God has for you is for you alone! Believe that your blessings are on it’s way.
For all of those times where I was blessed with an unexpected surprise…whether it was receiving great news during trying times, finding the best bargain when funds were low or for having something great happen when it seemed impossible, unimaginable or even unbelievable…I say thank you God because I know that was You! 🙏
There may be times when we compare our situation to others but one important factor to remember is that we don’t know what the other person has gone through to get to where they are. Their blessings are for them and your blessings are for you. Don’t cheat yourself from receiving what’s faithfully yours.
Keep this in mind…”Your journey is not my journey and my journey is not yours”.
