Yes I know, I haven’t written a blog in a while. So much has been going on and honestly, time was of the essence. Not only is my time valuable, so is yours. I figured if the quality of my writing was going to be less than my best, it wouldn’t be worth your time reading. However, I AM BACK! Hopefully it wasn’t too bad for you during this time off the “journey with Dani”. I am sure you have planned a few things for the duration of the year or moreso, for the beginning of Fall.
Me: Classes start on Monday and I am taking three this semester: African American Studies, Non Profit Organizations, and Business Policies. *Pray For Me*
You: Are you taking any classes? If so, what are you taking? If you don’t mind me asking, where do you attend school? Post your comments below…
Let’s Chat: If you are new to following me, WELCOME! For those of you returning, as always, I thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for your support! To my new friends, I started school back in 2015 after almost eight years of being out. God has blessed me with employment for a University. I take advantage of all the wonderful benefits including an education. Each semester I take a few classes working towards my bachelors degree. Proud to announce: I am a junior, a few credits shy of being a senior ! “Won’t God Do It?” I met with my advisor this summer and we discuss the classes remaining, let us just say that the end is near! ♥
Friends, I really do appreciate you reading these blogs. I started writing a long time and told myself no matter how many subscribers I obtain-this is my passion. I will always write as if thousands were reading. If more opportunity comes of this, so be it, but if not-God is still good! I use my blogs to express things I deal with. You might as well say it’s therapy for me. Plus, how awesome it even in the midst of God dealing with me, (revealing my story), my blogs manage to help someone else? Every time I become discouraged about what isn’t going right in my life, God sends someone to remind me how blessed I am (how it could always be worst). Sometimes he even uses someone to bless me!
Testimony: On yesterday, I had been dealing with a lot, including my short comings. I was talking to with a friend about how hard it was for me to see so many problems I could not offer a solution to. She gave some good advice, but also blessed me with lunch. Now that may seem small to you, but at that moment, that was everything to me. My friend could have just listened to me vent, but she reached out. She let me share with her my inner thoughts, blessed me with lunch, and provided some wisdom/encouragement to help me keep going. I always pray to God for those who go out of their way to bless me, that he blesses them even more. You see, I know the season I am in. Therefore, every seed sown into my life whether it’s financially, a word of encouragement, a hug, lunch, an outfit, a ride, whatever, I DO NOT TAKE IT LIGHTLY. There was a time I had so much more to give, but right now I simply live on grace and mercy from God my father. I embrace the generosity of close family and friends. Everyone doesn’t have to know the details of your story, but for those you feel comfortable sharing it with-remember to be sincere and God will do the rest.
I can not wait until I am in a better place. Don’t get me wrong, I still give now when I can or I’m led to (even when I don’t have it-I never want to be disobedient or miss an opportunity to bless others). In my quiet time, I write down those who stuck by my side. Not to keep tabs on blessings, but to remember individuals who DID NOT HAVE TO, BUT DID. I never want to forget the love and support shown to me throughout these “trying” years. TO MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS, you know who you are, THANK YOU! It feels good to be back.
Much love to everyone reading this…..until next time
