Work in Progress

As human beings, we are all  works in progress and it is okay to be a work in progress because we are not meant to be perfect. We are meant to have flaws, and as such we need to understand that flaws are not dealbreakers for the Lord because he loves us unconditionally and supports […]

Paths and Directions

We all have our own individual paths we are on in life, and though each path is different depending on the person, every path has something in common: the journey. What we might not realize is that the journey we take down our path to get to our ultimate destination is long and winding with […]

thankfulness and more

We are human beings, and as human beings we all have habits that we fall into. One of these habits is not showing that we are thankful for the people and things that God has blessed us with. We are not bad people if we don’t show thankfulness, it is just a sign that we are […]

A view on judging others

1 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the […]

Blessed

As humans, we have a tendency to take the things we are blessed with for granted, in more ways than one. It doesn’t mean that there is something wrong with us, or that we are bad people. We are all guilty of this and most of the time we get so caught up in our […]

This time it’s different.

I’ve thought a lot about how things have changed in the seemingly short span of a year. A lot of changes have happened and I didn’t know what the future held, especially because at this time last year I was visiting BU for transition day and learning very quickly that things were going to be […]

Reflections,etc.

The holidays are  a time to reflect on what we have and look forward with hope at the future, the year we have ahead of us. Christmas itself has become a very commercialized holiday, with advertisements and commercials for the hottest toys, technology, etc. We get so caught up sometimes during the holidays in finding the […]

at this point and more.

My roommate Lindsey is one of my closest friends and I love her dearly, but when she came back from being home all weekend, she was singing songs and not just any song, Christmas carols. I for one am someone who starts listening to Christmas music on November 1, so while I had been listening […]

Transitions

When I made the decision a few years ago to go to school in Boston instead of somewhere close to home, I knew that it would be a transition, and I knew there would be challenges. Growing up my mom would tell me to be prepared as life has more transitions than I might think. I […]

Family matters and more.

I was born into a family that one could say was “blended”. I have three siblings, all from my father’s previous marriages, and my mother had a built a reputation for being talented in two areas: cooking and interior decorating. My oldest sister, Shannon is a librarian; my middle sister Katie is a stay at […]
