As little as one month ago, I was scrambling to find a place to call home. It got down to the wire people, meaning I was down to one week and zero prospects. I began contemplating leaving the State, and plenty of other nonsense.
I began to pray fervently, asking God specifically for what I wanted in a dwelling, I then proceeded to hand this heavy burden over to Him to carry. I’m simply not built for heavy lifting, besides, He says we are to do both…cast our burdens on Him and simply ask for what we want. “You have not because you ask not. ” No, God’s not a genie, however, when our will lines up with His will for us…It is done!
Home sweet home… I received ALL I asked of Him and then some. I am so very blessed💗
Today I was going to blog about the top 5 beauty items which have changed my skin profoundly. However, as I looked out my bedroom window to see the skies were grey and puddles had formed on the sill, my heart leaped a bit. I hadn’t realized it had rained and was now drizzling…I love when it rains in Los Angeles. I love the sound of it, the smell in the air after, walking in it while listening to my iPod, the fact my car gets washed, after much procrastination on my part, to actually drive it to the carwash, lol. Not surprisingly, I decided to ditch any semblance of work. Although blogging is hardly work for me, I made the executive decision to postpone the top 5 beauty items which have changed my skin so profoundly until tomorrow;)
As quickly as the thought came, I grabbed a sweater and coat, donned my favourite, cold weather hat which is a bit quirky with the squirrels and all, (nonetheless, this Eugenia Kim has served me well over the last 5 years), powered up the iPod and took to the streets of LA where it rarely rains. The first song that played was one I haven’t heard in years, it brought back memories of such good times…remember this one by The Roots?
I love when it rains in Los Angeles…

I spotted this quote on the page of fellow blogger, Sinem Karisir. Just a little food for thought, I’m just saying…
