God’s Creation

While I know myself as a creation of God, I am also obligated to realize and remember that everyone else and everything else are also God’s creation. – Maya Angelou

Thank you Lovely Lady for allowing your life to be an extension of God’s Love. Our prayers and condolences to your friends, family and the world you changed with your presence and voice. You are loved and missed by many.

Here’s My Penny, Blogging 101: Assignment 3

Good Day Ladies & Gents,
I would like to share with you what caused me to blog. At 36.5 years of age I watched my friend, Dennis, take on his 8 months to 30 years Challenge. He discussed what his challenge would entail and what he expected to accomplish.

That’s when the cogs started to turn… I would celebrate my 40 months to 40 years with a 40 to 40 Journey Yes, I know that it was 3.7 years yet it would be epic (I had no clue how.. yet it would be). I sat down and began to think of the areas I needed to work on, better habits I needed to foster and what type of party I would throw for myself at the end (in my head April 1st, my birthday, is a National Holiday). During this self chat I realized a blog would be the perfect to share my Journey.

Then nerves stopped me…. then indecisiveness gripped me… then I needed a website forced me… my friends suggested I blog about my baking and crafting. They helped me realize WordPress would give me the best of both worlds. So here I am. Trying my hand at something new and enjoying the journey.

I am not sure what the next 3 years will yield yet I promise to Blog about it.

35 Months to 40,
Jimella

What A Difference Relationships Make

I was beyond concerned as my Birthday, April 1st, approached. With the recent loss of my grandmother I lost my Pre-Birthday weekend hangout partner and first bestie. I was not sure how I would handle missing out on our time together. I tried not to dwell on it and just let the weekend happen…

That’s when three lovely ladies stepped in… Tawny, Ana, and Mrs. Chris filled an empty space, March 29th, with love, laughter, shopping and fun on a rainy day.

I am overjoyed and want to thank these Lovely Ladies for allowing God to use them to bring happiness to my day… Fostering relationships built on love and mutual respect are necessary in all our lives.
