What I Learned in April

    1. Hi Ciara! Thanks for sharing your post! I loved reading it, and I relate to so much of it. It especially resonated with you saying, “I like things to happen on my time as I have planned & God has shown me constantly my timing isn’t always correct.” That seems to be the story of my life lately, and it was so encouraging to be reminded never to stop dreaming. I wish you all the best with your dreams & future! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Marissa! I love hearing when you relate to something. It’s comforting to know I’m not alone- which is funny, since we’re talking about being independent 😉


  1. I can definitely relate to the part about not wanting to rely on other people. That’s a fault I’m trying to overcome.

    Yes, brains are funny things. I find songs and books especially have a way of moving you back in time to a certain place and a certain frame of mind (but maybe that’s just because I spend far too much time on both. 😀 ).

    But metaphors are life! (Or rather, life is metaphor. 😉 ).

    “Don’t despise small beginnings” is very good writing advice. When I write, I keep losing faith in myself, thinking that whatever I do now is as good as it’s going to get. I definitely needed to be reminded that nothing starts out realizing its full potential.

    1. Hanna, I’m sorry I’m replying so late! Thank you for your kind words.
      Songs and books are such powerful memory boosters! You can never really spend too much time on either 😉
      I hadn’t thought of “Don’t despise small beginnings” as writing advice, but it really does fit. I’m so glad you mentioned it, because I needed to be reminded of that tonight! The way you phrased it, “Nothing starts out realizing its full potential,” is positively quotable. I love that!
      Thanks for always being such an encouragement. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you taking the time to leave me a comment & share your thoughts. ❤


  2. So Blessed to have come across your words today!! “Don’t despise small beginnings. Even mighty redwood trees sprout from tiny seeds, buried in dirt.” Don’t ya just love it, when the same verse appears in our path…several times in a short period?! A friend and I were chatting a few hours ago, at length about this very verse in Zechariah! Blessed Word!!

  3. Oh dear, Sarah. I got Captain America too . . . Does this mean we have to end our friendship now? I mean, I like having things in common with you and all, but seriously. I don’t share well.
