I heart….

– sleeping on sheets fresh out of the laundry

– starting a good book

– the cold side of the pillow

– seeing minnie yawn

– waking up to realize i have more time to sleep

– a cool shower after a long, hot, and sticky day

– someone telling me a secret. just me.

– the first step after taking off high heels at the end of the day

– instant friendships

– waking up and remembering a vivid dream

– not wearing eye makeup and being able to rub my eyes

 

life. is. good.

during the last few weeks, i vowed to take advantage of my free time + my life in the city to explore my surroundings.

first stop, central park with minnie & The Kiterunner (albeit, only 20 minutes..) then, chelsea container store.. then, upper east container store.. then, the MET (mcqueen 2.5 hr wait avoided thanks to bori&jouna), Nobu…..and container store again.

next, the financial district/ground zero

firefighters of 9/11 sought refuge and rest at st. paul's chapel

went to the 9/11 memorial and stopped by St. Paul’s Chapel. Was brought to tears reading and being reminded of the horrendous event that occured 10 years ago. I sat in the Chapel and began to pray to God for those people who have died on that day and for their loved ones whose lives had been changed forever… but didn’t know what to pray for. looked up and saw:

He said to pray for peace.

 

grabbed some lunch with the beautiful jennipur and got to see a bit of her world at work. God is so good in his provisions 🙂 🙂

we said goodbye and i continued my self guided tour of our city’s financial district. ever get lost and not care? it’s great feeling. would have been better if i wasn’t wearing my rainboots. i blame Mr.KOm, aka Mr.ALWAYSNEEDTOBEPREPARED who insisted it will continue to rain throughout the day irregardless of weather reports that only said 30% chance.

walked down to battery park and swooped back up and found myself at south street seaport….

… just in time for my tired feet finally telling me that they’ve had enough. sorry south street seaport, maybe next time.

we took a stroll through the city today with Minnie. Minnie must have produced more than 100 smiles through the city of new york in a span of about 2 hours! it’s amazing how the simple sight of a dog can make peoples’ faces light up with a smile. she really doesn’t even have to be doing anything at all.. we were waiting outside for about 10 minutes for Mr. KOm to get something from the supermarket, some cooed, some ahhed, and every passerby stared intently at the little creature with a smile plastered across their face.

i saw the most sensitive side of new york today. the most random people would stop us on the street and on the subway dying to know more about Minnie.

what kind of dog is she? how old is she? does she poop on your stuff?

how easy is it to open people up to be vulnerable and sensitive? all you really have to do is stick a dog under your arm and people will be dying to know more, see more, ask more… how wonderful would it be if people reacted in the SAME EXACT way to a bible tucked under my arm or a cross on my neck?

God showed me today that even the angriest of new yorkers have the capacity to be vulnerable to complete strangers and buckle in weakness at the simple sight of a furry animal. How much more powerful would God work in the lives of these exact people once they know that they are loved by the almighty Creator? wowzers.

PM’s sermon 2 weeks ago convicted me to memorize bible verses every week. I was excited to start this new routine and decided to make PM’s Monday devotional the focus for the whole week. The following Monday, PM just happened to forget to click send on his email. Coincidence? I think not. The enemy will try anything he can to discourage us and divert us from the Lord’s plan.

I didn’t remember my new resolution until Thursday during the Ephesian’s bible study when I came across these verses in Ephesians 5:

 8 You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light

9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)

10 and find out what pleases the Lord.

How can I possibly please God when I don’t know God? It is my goal to get to know Him so that I will get to know what pleases Him.
