Happy "Single" Holidays...


Holidays as special as they are can often exacerbate feelings of loneliness.  How often between now and Christmas will we turn on the television and see commercials about a man getting his woman a gift from Zales or Lexus. How often will we see advertisements suggesting that we should purchase the new Elmo toy for our son's and daughter's? 

In spite of what the media portrays there are scores of single women who will be celebrating & enjoying this holiday season without spouses or children.

Honestly I am a bit disappointed that I will be spending yet another holiday without him. But what am I to do; sit at home and sulk? That won't be happening. I will enjoy this Christmas season surrounded by love and God's blessings.

I know there is someone reading this who is upset that another year has passed and he/she is still single. I know that you are feeling hopeless and frustrated that God hasn't changed your situation. Embrace those feelings but also remain faithful that the Creator of the Universe is determined to give you the desires of your heart. It's not easy but we can get through it together :-) 

Don't despair, Don't lose hope...Your man is closer than you think!

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4

Random Thought: Giving Thanks!

  
Thanksgiving provides us with an opportunity to acknowledge those things that we are grateful for. I would like to take this moment to let each and every one of you, my readers, know just how much I appreciate you. I can write and create videos until I'm blue in the face but without you it would be a waste. I pray this blog is as encouraging to you as it is to me.

Thank You For Taking This Journey With Me & Have a Happy Holiday!

Confidently Single: Fairytales...

In the final installment of the Confidently Single Series I am calling on my readers to consider the question "What Fairytale Notions Are You Holding Onto?"

As children we were overwhelmed with images of women being rescued by Prince Charming. Perhaps these fairytales have had an effect on our perceptions and expectations of men. Check out the video and let me know what you think.

Random Thought: Sex...


This weeks RT was sparked by a discussion on the Not-so-Patiently Waiting... Facebook Page. One of the members is practicing Abstinence and was asking for tips/encouraging stories on how to stay strong. Most members noted that keeping busy and prayer were the keys to staying Abstinent. The only words of encouragement I had for her were "God Speed & Good Luck".

For the past year and 3 months I have abstained from sex and it has been one of the toughest experiences of my life. Abstinence is nothing new to me. I practiced it in College as well. One would think that I would've gotten used to it by now. But I haven't. Actually, it sucks!

Growing up in church I was taught that it is wrong to have premarital sex. One of the scriptures used to justify this is "But if they cannot exercise self-control, they should marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion." 1 Corinthians 7:9

The scripture makes perfect sense right? If I lack self-control in that area I should get married. But then the question becomes whom should I marry. Should I have married one of the men who loved me but weren't a good fit for me? Should I marry one of the guys standing on the corner outside my building? I'm told it is better to marry then to burn with passion. Oh if it were that simple.

My Prayer:
Father I want to do those things that are pleasing to you. If it pleases you that I be married instead of burning with passion (because I'm hot enough to MELT) please send my husband. I need him. Thank You & Amen!

Remember Dolls Your Man is Closer Than You Think...  :-)

Random Thought: I'm Not Good Enough For You

I listened quietly as my then boyfriend declared once again "I'm not good enough for you. You're a beautiful woman who has everything going for you and I...". He went on to finish this statement with a list of shortcomings related to his looks, financial standing, etc. No matter how hard I tried I couldn't convince this man that he was good enough for me. Eventually, I realized that he wasn't.

If a guy tells you he's not good enough for you, believe him. He's probably telling the truth.




Ladies, Your Man is Closer Than You Think!
