Just a quick update on the Color and Theme Project… First I gotta be really honest here… I’m not as excited as I was before… oh well… but I’m doing it anyways…
Tomorrow it starts with the color purple and guilty suggested by my dear follower: http://incidentallearner.wordpress.com/ Thank you!
Here is the deal… I’m going on a road trip to Florida tomorrow and I will staying there till Saturday. I was thinking that I could come up with some “rules” just in case if I can’t resist to post a picture of the sunrise or the sunset… So, I came up with the “waive photos” and that means that throughout the project I have 10 photos that I can waive and just post something else that is not related with the color of the week. Remember that it is an 9 week project…
The themes are based on a study by Dr. David Jeremiah called “Slaying the Giants” and the verses will help us overcome those giants…
Despite my lack of excitement I think this will be a great project and a great way for us to learn how to overcome certain situations…
Also, feel free to participate with the project just as Jeremy is going to!
Be with us!
Another month is already over… is going by so fast that I wish I could slow down time…
I never thought that I would be revealing my feelings through God’s creation… This project has been such a blessing in my life… How did I live without it???
April was a good month… Despite some things that I went through, God showed me His faithfulness more than anything… His faithfulness to all of you who follow or see the blog…
God loves you so much… Stick with Him and with us as I keep on my searching for Him…
“We keep looking to the Lord our God for his mercy, just as servants keep their eyes on their master, as a slave girl watches her mistress for the slightest signal.” Psalms 123:2
(You know those days that you just want to cry but tears won’t come out? When you can’t describe what you are feeling? Today was one of those days for me… I just had to get out and stop everything I was doing and look for God… I found this place, I sat down and all I could say was “Lord have mercy…” And I’ll keep looking for it…)
“Remember me, Lord, when you show favor to your people; come near and rescue me.” Psalms 106:4
“Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” 2 Corinthians 5:17
(There is always a place for a second chance…)
“Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice.” Psalms 51:8
(When I read this verse last night, I knew exactly where to go this morning… It says: “Let me hear joy” and I just knew I had to go back there and hear the birds freely singing… It is the same place of this post Lonely Bench back in January 23th but a different perspective… God is been so merciful to me these past days and I feel I’m getting to that place I once was…)
“You hear my voice in the morning; at sunrise I offer my prayer and wait for your answer.” Psalms 5:3

“O God, you are my God, and I long for you. My whole being desires you; like a dry, worn-out, and waterless land, my soul is thirsty for you.” Psalms 63:1
(I never thought that this blog would be such a reflection of what I’m going through… This is exactly how I feel… like a dry land… It has been chaotic since last Friday when we decided to go to NY and I got to confess that it has been hard to connect with God like before… But yet, He still amazes me… He is so faithful and because of that He somehow is keeping me going to bless you… One thing that I can not stop asking Him is to bless whoever views the blog… just because I do feel so dry inside… But I’m not giving up… I’m searching for Him… and I know that He is allowing me to continue because of you… Stay with me…)
“In spite of many daydreams, pointless actions, and empty words, you should still fear God.” Ecclesiastes 5:7
