Today is the anniversary of my baptism, and I'm ecstatic! I mean, whoa! I've been a child of God for 19 years, now! I am so thankful to be in covenant with God, and though I know I fail, at times, though I stumble and fall, God never gives up on me! He is a God of second chances, and I praise Him for that! Yay-rah! I am so blessed to be able to walk with Him! May the Lord bless and keep all of you, this day. May He smile upon you and be gracious to you. May He look upon you with favor and give you peace. :D Praise be to God!

I found this poem on the purity forums. I kind of liked the concept.

I Am A Married Woman
Author unknown

I’m a married woman,
Most folks just don’t know it.
My body is my husband’s.
I don’t rightly own it.

No one else
Has any claim on me.
I am my husband’s—
Don’t touch his property.

Treat me like a married woman,
‘Cause that’s just what I am, you see.
God has a husband picked out for me,
And I am waiting for him, faithfully.

So think of me as a sister—
Don’t look at me lustfully.
I’m not a means for thrills.
I’m a married woman, you see.

I am not a toy to make you feel good,
I’m not a decoration for your arm
To make you look good,
I’m not yours to love or harm.

People talk about “free sex”
But there’s no such thing with me.
Sex with me comes at a high price:
Lifelong marriage and fidelity.

I’ll be your friend and sister
But nothing more.
My husband is the one
I am waiting for.

To be his and only his,
‘Til death do us part.
I am committed to him
With my body, mind, and heart.

So treat me like you would
If my husband was at hand.
Look at me with purity—
I am a married woman.

I may have a boyfriend, but it still applies to me

Saved & Single
- Author Unknown

What makes you think that just because I am
an Attractive woman of Godly intelligence
That I'm incomplete without a mate?
Who told you that Without a man
Something's missing From my life?
And if so, What would that be?

I love myself
And more importantly
I love the Lord
He told me that when I delight in Him,
He will
give me the desires of my heart
I have everything I need according to His riches in glory.

Now, how's a man going to get to know me
When he doesn't even know who he is in the Lord
See my Father told me I'm above a ruby's worth
And a gem does not seek
It is sought

I'm single and that's all right with me

it's not that I oppose relationships
It's that I detest co-dependency
As a woman
I know it is not my role
To chase after any man

Esther 2:14
reads That I am to wait on my king and when he's delighted in me. He will call me by my name.

My Lord does not intend for me to be needy or desperate.
I am to be Cherished, Relished, Valued, and Honored,
It's not my job to convince him
Or Convict him of that,
My mate will already know it
And consistently show it
And he will stay on his knees daily
Not just to adore me
But to praise the Lord for
The virtuous woman he has found
So, when you see me by myself
I'm not alone
I know what I have coming to me

I'm single and saved, and right now that's all I need to be!

New Year! Goodbye Apologies!

I told you all I had made a lot of apologies, lately. It is true. I have made a lot of mistakes in the past. I could list them all off, but I feel that it's not necessary. I mean, I have been forgiven for them, and I don't want to dwell on the past offenses that have been forgiven me. I mean, it's not that I'm proud of them or that I'm glad I did anything, but honestly, why dwell on something that's been removed from me? It's a new year, and a new beginning. As I watched the new day dawn, a new year come over the horizon, I was struck with how magnificent our Lord truly is. It is so comforting, so amazing to have a God who is willing to give you so many chances. I spent an hour and a half sitting there reveling in my blessings. The Lord has blessed me with the opportunity to live here as a part of his beautiful creation. His creation is so magnificently made, and surely he hasn't spared me of being a part of the glorious beauty that he has crafted. His strength and forgiveness are beyond my wildest dreams. My only prayer is that I might use my actions to show Him my gratitude and love.
