Trying to stay calm

I have been blessed to work at my church's summer program with kids this year. Lately I have been feeling extremely down and exhausted. I feel like I'm not experienced enough to take care of them and I just want to give up. I think in those times I often forget to depend on God. I think in those times, I truly I have to humble myself to understand that God is my source of strength. 

I really enjoy those moments when these kids are so calm, all they want to do is talk to you. That makes me smile so much because I feel like I am doing something in these kid's lives. 

But there are times when they are CRAZY. I have to raise my voice, something I really hate doing. These are the times when I feel like God is pushing me out of my comfort zone and to grow as a person. 

Five more weeks with these kiddos, hopefully I'll make it out alive. With God, I'm pretty sure I can!

Taking a Detour

So, lets just tell the truth. I have neglected this blog for a bit over a year now and I think that it is time for a change. I want to start something new, something with purpose. My love for photography and documentation has pushed me to create something that I will treasure. I want to start writing in this blog about how God is working in my life. The good, the bad, sad, joyful, and also some of the worst moments. I want to share this with the world because I truly believe that God is working in my life and others. I want to  show my readers that life has purpose in God, I want to share  about my life in photos and descriptions. Don't worry, I'll put in some fashion and fun too! I just want my readers to know that I care and that this is something that will be fun and meaningful too. From this day forward I plan to post one or more photos and describe how God is working in my life.  

Let's start with a jewel, my two older sisters and I. I am extremely thankful to have been blessed with amazing sisters that are there to teach me and help me. Sometimes, tension can arise but I know that because of Gods's love, we still love each other. 

I truly look forward to embarking this journey of blogging. I will learn things and I might receive some criticism or negative views but this blog is for God's glory. 
Thanks for reading, more to come:D
