What’s Most Important?

Always remember, no matter how bad some things are, they could always be worst and no matter how good things are, there is always room for things to get better. Better is always around the corner.

You are one of the best, because there are so many great things about you, that if you get caught up on focusing on one thing, you might miss what’s most important. ~You. ~ Anonymous

Declare what you Desire

Paralyzed by the love we found, he likes the way I love. I’m stepping way out of my comfort zone now, Lord keep carrying me down this road. Protection means to set boundaries. Be patient and be bold. Declare what you desire! Let your intentions be known. #thepoetryjournal

I opened the door to love and I was amazed at what I could find. You would not believe my story if I told you how this all began from my very first time on this island.

But don’t think for a second it’s been all peaches and cream, from a fantasy unfolding to a reality untold. This has not been easy.

Things can be going good, but when the flames go out we find a way to ignite them again. Isn’t that what love is about? To keep finding your way in and out?

Just as you can see the clear blue skies, the trees taller than you could ever climb. The sand and shore for miles and miles. This is Faith because I never thought I could have this. Never imagined that I could deserve this. If I would have waited to depend on him, I would not be here writing this.

If you want something and you have the desire to make it happen, declare what you desire. There’s many ways to go about getting what you want, but the route I took was truly a faith walk. I had fear, but I also had love. The Lord’s love for us allowed this to happen. I have not done this on my own.

This romantic abode sits right on the shore in Uvero Alto in the Dominican Republic. It is elevated above a gift shop so when the sun rises, it’s something you don’t want to miss. It’s stocked with essentials like milk, juice, eggs, bread, cereal, coffee, fruit, and more. There is Wi-fi, even a portable wi-fi if you decide to go out on the beach, now that’s a plus.

It has two electric burners, a panini grill and a microwave. I was just in my own little heaven. It really felt like home. When I woke up in the middle of the night and I saw the view of the moon shining very bright along the ocean, I knew that God was with me. I can’t thank him enough for his protection and his grace that abounds much more. The host for this Air BnB deserves a 10 for superb service, accommodations, cleanliness and great communication throughout my entire stay!

I want to return one day to this cozy place and explore love all over again with a rendezvous face to face.

Holy Week

I have the privilege to partake in the presence of the Holy Spirit daily, but during certain times of the year, there’s a special time set aside for worship, adoration, giving thanks, repentance, protection, and praise. We get the opportunity to go around this room and write down our thoughts and we pour out what’s in our minds and what’s on our hearts; not only for ourselves, but for those who are suffering, persecuted and or lost. I do not take this time for granted. I’m very grateful. I’m humble. An awesome place to be. Thank you.

God’s Glory

Lord, it’s because of you I am able to bask in your glory.

Thank you.

I saw God’s Glory!

I have worked more than twenty years from retail shops to hardware stores, and non profit organizations; earning a decent paycheck to take care of my family.

I have always dreamed of going places far away to learn more about other cultures. Fulfilling my inner being to be better, set good examples and to give back to the people in my circle.

I don't have money to show for my return on my investment, but what I have learned from travel is just priceless.

The ability to embrace other people and their circumstances, whether it's being better off financially or being less fortunate, this is a lesson in itself that has changed my life.

I can't stop loving because someone has less than what I have; this only encourages me to work harder to find a way to touch and encourage people to dream bigger than their current situations.

Old San Juan taught me the importance of preserving life's history. To build on what you have, little by little, piece by piece, brick by brick, dollar by dollar, and heart to heart. The fruit of your ancestors hard labor should not go unnoticed.

When I walked through Old San Juan, I could see the smiles, the good times, the music, the hard labor, the family bonds, the authentic food, the hills, the brick roads, the sea, and most importantly I could see me!

Lord, you blessed me to see Old San Juan, not only did I see your Glory, I also had fun. What did I do to deserve this? I'm so grateful.

Love ❤️,
Raquél
