May the peace of Christ be with you!

It’s been two months of absence and there was without a day that I did not think of going back and writing back to my blog and to get in touch with my readers once again. I remember each one of readers during those days.

What have I been up to? I got a new job and this job changed my entire writing time and had no time to sit as I embarked on my new job and a part of that reason was spending an essential time to get to know new people in my life both in the workplace and personal.

At this point of time, I am shifting the path of my career and I hope to share the few steps I have taken on my next blog. This shift of career is also a decision to support my plans so I could have an ample time to write.

Today, I would like to share another journal entry which I thought is a way of sharing my heart sincerely and wholeheartedly.At that point of writing, I was very far from who I am today. Through the course of 12 years, the Lord allowed and helped, guided, strengthened me to gather flowers for Him and He still do until today.

On my next blog, “Lessons from the tall, dark and good-looking single straight guy”

Let there be peace in your heart today.

Dear Father God (my beautiful Creator)

You did not create a waste out of me.

I will wait until the fulfillment of your promise. I will trust Your divine providence.

Father God, I renew my commitment to bring flowers to You, to bring you glory. (I visited the Adoration Chapel earlier and found it strange that there were no flowers. Until I heard in my heart that I will bring flowers. )

Save me, Father God. Give me the grace, to bring You glory to Your throne… Forever.

I saw my cellphone and it could be a powerful weapon. May you always remind me that when I allow myself to be used by You, I become potent and powerful.

Gratefully Yours,
Benia (PICC grounds)

Dear Journal,

In the quietness of working alone tonight, I finished the book of Steve Harvey. I remembered significant men that I dated. Gosh. Here are my learnings. Thanks, Steve Harvey!

1. Act like a man. Speak like a lady. Extra care for their ego. (Ok. Fine.)

2. Get some standards. They respect it. (I have a long list which one to drop, then?) [Scribbles.]
(A man who can marry in the Catholic church who loves and honors the Lord and loves and honors me completely. He must love me first.)

[Scribbles and tons of smileys.]

3. Let them know what you don’t want. (I will lessen this as I have promised the Lord. Be open that no one is perfect and that includes me, )

[Scribbles and tons of smileys.]

4. “We need to talk” scares them

(So, I will rephrase with “Can we just talk? Meaning I will do the talking and you will do the listening)

[Series of smileys]
5. Your time is your reward to them.

6. REWARD THEM IF THEY ARE WORTHY.

7. Ask them what they think about family, children when being asked to have a date.

8. Go back to number one.

After going through those points, it came to mind that those misses were a saving grace from damaging relationships.

Thank you Lord for men 1, 2 and 3 and thank you for Your protection. I truly am grateful.

Dear Journal,

In the quietness of working alone tonight, I finished the book of Steve Harvey. I remembered men that I dated. Gosh, enough of misses. Here are my learnings. Thanks, Steve Harvey!

1. Act like a man. Speak like a lady. Extra care for their ego. (I wonder how to tell them “You are wrong”?)

2. Get some standards. They respect it. (I have a long list which one to drop, then?) [Scribbles.]
(A man who can marry in the church who loves and honors the Lord and loves and honors me completely. He must love me first.)

3. Let them know what you don’t want. (I will lessen this, Lord, as I have promised You. Be open that no one is perfect and that includes me,)

4. “We need to talk” scares them (So, rephrased with “Can we just talk? Meaning I will do the talking and you will do the listening)

[Laughing faces. Scribbles.]

5. Your time is your reward to them.
6. REWARD THEM IF THEY ARE WORTHY.

7. Ask them what they think about family, children when being asked to have a date.

8. Go back to number one.

After going through those points, I really think that the Lord has really saved me from damaging relationships by those “misses”. Thank you Lord for man 1, 2 and 3 and thank you for Your protection.
