Authenticity

This is where the magic happens.

I took this photo walking upon Juanillo Beach and the breeze was so cool that evening I wanted to turn around and run back to my taxi, but I stayed because I love the beaches in the Dominican Republic and I know that each moment I spend there it brings me life.

Some random man photo bombed my picture!

Just me in my element. Lord, you just keep loving me, even if I feel I don’t deserve it. I want to make this right. This feels right at home for me. This is authenticity!

por el amor tan grande que nos tenenos te pido que juntemos nuestras vida en matrimonio

My Top 10!

Traveling does not always require a full itinerary. You can still have fun relaxing.

Top Ten ways to relax if you’re on Vacation

1. Schedule a full body scrub massage

2. Sleep in late

3. Attend a yoga session

4. Drink hot tea or coffee

5. Sit out on the beach for every sunrise and sunset

6. Cook dinner

7. Read a romance novel

8. Visit the Zoo or the local park

9. Volunteer to help the children or the elderly

10. Shake heavily and pop the cork open on a bottle of champagne and let it spill all over you in the shower

Pick any three of these and you’ve got your relaxation for your vacation.

The Trio of Rings

Available on Amazon, this book “The Love Experience,” is my personal memoir about traveling overseas to the República Dominicana 🇩🇴

Falling in love ~ losing control and just having fun through it all. I miss that slice of paradise. This journey has not stopped me yet!

For the mysterious reasons unbeknownst to us, it was about three years ago when we were Crossing Paths, heaven placed a Teardrop of joy on our destiny giving us a Shimmering Wish for the unity of this fantasy. #theloveexperience #travel #fantasy #romance #thepoetryjournal #pandora

I found these rings and each ring has a name.

1. Crossing Paths

2. Teardrop

3. Shimmering Wish

Each one is symbolic ~ a Trio of Rings for 3 years in this relationship.

Crossing the Paths of Life ~ 6 February 2015

Bring HIM honor and glory

Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him. This is my rule in all the churches. 1 Corinthians 7:17 ESV

I was taught that we have direct access to the Trinity. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. It is the newness of our spirit that can bring honor and glory when we give up our own desires of the flesh to a higher calling on our lives.

But on the other hand, I was also taught that God gave us free will to choose for ourselves how we want to live our lives and to live pursuing our own goals and aspirations.

Lord is this the life you chose for me or am I pursuing my own goals and aspirations?

At what point do you really choose the life God has for you?

Do you continue on your own path of righteousness or do you fully surrender unto the Lord Almighty?

Lord I want to bring you honor in the way that I live and glory in how I use my unique talents. Make your calling clear to me so that I can fulfill it. ~ Amen

Be Sill and Know Daily Devotional

Thanks Ché

True Story

The Poetry Journal wants to connect with you to identify the insecurities in your relationships. Fear, self-doubt, or jealousy. These feelings can occur. We all may experience some level of vulnerability when we choose to love, but you can work through them to achieve your level of confidence.

My book, “The Love Experience” is based on a love affair overseas and I write about identifying the many insecurities I faced and how they affect us psychologically. This Love Experience is based on a true story and is now available on Amazon.com. You can click here to buy your paperback

My Henna Artist @domsol has her copy!

My sister’s friend read her copy on vacation in St. Lucia.

My hair stylist just gave birth to her beautiful new born baby girl and she also has her copy.

This is a blessing to see my work in the hands of the ones I love. I know that I have more work to do to continue to reach you! Thank you Lord for my destiny. God is Glorious all the time.

We Are for Each Other

Chapter Seven ~ (edited) Although his love was not perfect, I realized that neither was mine. I believed there was a victory in being so vulnerable, after I had gone through a major loss, but I made a conscious effort on being confident and decided to love again. We have more work to do, but I knew one day he would come for me and it would be true that he was the one. I discovered that the perfect gift he had to give to me was his heart.
