Part of the reason that I started this blog was because I feel a unexplicable need in my heart and soul to write--it satisfies something within myself and gives me a sense of satisfaction and happiness that I cannot find otherwise. I have felt this way since I was little, and I think perhaps I will feel this way even when I am old. I have had journals for as long as I can remember, and this blog serves as another journal for me (just a more public one). Thank you for not laughing and critiquing my words!!

I have been thinking a lot about signs lately. Spiritual signs, that is! It's amazing what you see when you really open your eyes. I think that God is sending me signs, telling me that he is hearing me and walking with me everyday. I believe I am in the right place in my life for this to happen. I don't think that my 16 year old self, my 21 year old self, or even my 25 year old self was ready to walk down any kind of spiritual path, and now here I am, on the brink of 30 that I feel that I am in the perfect place to seek, to listen and to see.

So what kind of signs have I seen in my life? Well, first, the book "The Secret". This book has shown me the limitless possibilities of the universe (more importantly, GOD), and that I how I act, think and feel has a direct impact on what comes into my life. Secondly, Joel Osteen and his book "Daily Readings from Your Best Life Now". This book has made me see that GOD wants me to be happy, and that he has great plans for my life! Third, I stumbled upon Angie Smith's blog (Bring the Rain) when I was at a really low point in my life (my miscarriage), and I can't tell you how this has changed my outlook on all the bad things that have happened to me over the years. Finally, I have found some songs that have made me cry, and made me smile --"Bring the Rain" by Mercy Me and "Glory" by Selah (I first heard these on Angie's blog). GOD has brought these books, blogs and songs into my life because he knew that it is what I needed. I feel that this is truly GOD sending me signs that he is working in my life and that he hears me, even when I don't have the strength to speak outloud.
