My First Follower!

Wow, I am super excited about my first follower.  She is a divine inspiration to me.  Her blog is entitled "The Joy of the LORD is my Strength."  "Joy" is my word for the year.  How perfect is that?

I started this blog with the original intent of embracing my singleness and sharing my opinions and thoughts on what true love should look like.  It kind of morphed into an everyday journal with sporadic entries about different times in my life.  One of the common themes was time and not having enough of it.

I attempted to turn my blog into a place to share daily anecdotes under clever titles such as MAD Mondays and WOW God Wednesdays.  I have the best of intentions but seem to never follow through.  I am consistly inconsistent-a work in progress.

I am just grateful that there are people in this great big world that just may like what I have to say.  It is crazy to think that I started this blog to embrace my singleness and share my opinions on love.  It's been nearly three years, and I am just now learning to surrender and embrace my singleness and learn about love from God's perspective.

No, I didn't do anything stupid.  I just didn't give God my everything.  I am still learning the benefit of sweet surrender to an Almighty, loving God. I held back my desires from God and tried to fulfill them in other places such as online websites, friends, food.  Anything that would fill the void of lonliness and longing for my future mate.

I think I will attempt to bring this blog back to it's original purpose with God as my helper and see what happens.  As of right now, I am currently in a Sunday School class for Single women Seeking God's Best.  This is supposed to be future husband specific, but it is so much more than that.  It is a place where we can embrace our singleness and become beautiful women of God.  We must be what God wants us to be before we can even be ready for a husband.

In the past few years and most recent months, I have been learning how to be friends with guys and discovering so much about myself in the process.  I am attempting to live in the moment and not plan the future.  I have discovered many things about emotions and just how powerful those things can be.

One thing that stuck out from Sunday School this week was "become the person you want to attract." If you are into being fit and healthy you are most likely going to want someone that values that as well.  If you are a person of faith, you will probably seek the same.  If  you seek a rich, millionaire and are not yourself a millionare, you better either get busy or reevalute your ideals on money.

I am so happy I discovered my first follower.  I will do my best to be a bit more consistent on bringing you more information I gather on this blessed season of life called singleness.  According to Paul, it is a blessed time.  Check out I Corinthians 7:34-35.
