Just got back from the mall where Mitzil and I spent a good two hours looking for the perfect dress for this Saturday’s Art Exhibit at DC. Alas, I could not find the dress that could make my heart beat faster. I’ve started looking for this full-skirted, bustier 1950s style of dress that I could wear with a black bolero since last December to no avail. Instead, I found what I wanted in a Wedding website here in the internet tonight. 😉 I’ve until tomorrow evening to find that elusive dress. Maybe I’ll find that in my ever dependable and surprising downtown store. *wink!*
It’s a blessing how real, covenant friends allow you to let your hair down and just be. I am reminded of the line from Proverbs “there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” Thank God He connected Mitzil to Happy and me not just spiritually but by affinity now.
Dream BIG. What dream did God give you?
While I was pondering on the previous post about Rebecca St. James getting engaged at 33, I could not help but think about the many dreams I have that I’ve been praying for. One big dream I have is to see this nation change. Second, is I’ll say this out loud now ‘coz God’s teaching me to be real with myself these days: I want to marry that person whom I can fulfill God’s purposes in our generation together. So this simply means that our purposes would have to be aligned.
Like my prayer for my personal life, I’ve always asked God that my life would bring honor to Him even in my mistakes and weaknesses. Likewise, I want Him to be glorified by every decision and choice I make.
Third, I pray that this country’s educational system would be revolutionized. That a new generation of teachers who know God would rise up. And that the public schools and its students would see new school buildings, a wide array (array jud!) of instructional materials and more classrooms and more classrooms! Imagine that!
