The Face Of Thirty-Three

I'm not where I expected to be at 33. Many pieces of my life are in limbo. Many of the accomplishments I had envisioned at this point are still left unchecked. I've experienced struggle and adversity as we all do at certain times in our lives. But on this birthday, I choose joy. I choose to trust God's unraveling plan of beauty in my life. And while today looked different than what I had pictured in mind, I'm embracing it...because I know today was a perfect day in the eyes of God, and that my life was created with a bigger purpose than I could ever possibly imagine. So...with this smile, I give all thanks to my Maker. Thank You for my life, the hardship, the beauty, my family and friends, for inspiration, and hope, and all of the amazing opportunities that will continue to unveil themselves to me...all to glorify Your name.

Labor Day Birthday shopping with my lovely mom today.  So grateful for her love, support, encouragement, and guidance.

Love to all I have encountered on this journey of life. Each of you has touched my heart and made me better, stronger, wiser, and more loving. Thank you!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares The Lord, "plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11)
