Forgiveness Day

Forgiveness should be done throughout the whole year, but celebrating today’s holiday is a good way to start fresh. It’s important to forgive others and even sometimes yourself for past mistakes. “The most important thing that I learned in growing up is that forgiveness is something that, when you do it, you free yourself to move on.” – Tyler Perry

Book of the Month

I’ve decided to replace Movie of the Month with Book of the Month to reflect what I’m currently reading. My goal is to read 40 books this year. So far I’ve read 16 so almost halfway there!

This month’s book is The Set-Apart Woman by Leslie Ludy.

Summary: In The Set-Apart Woman, women of all ages will be encouraged to stay grounded in Jesus amid the many distractions and temptations of their daily lives. Biblical truths will help readers understand what it means to live the consecrated life, set apart for God’s purposes. Readers will apply these truths to practical areas of struggle that women face on a daily basis, such as sinful attitudes and patterns and other hindrances to our souls.

Usually I don’t read non-fiction, but this was a birthday gift from one of my friends. I’ve been procrastinating on reading it because most of my books are from the library and have to be sent back by a certain date or else I’d get fined.

Since I’m currently in chapter 3, I decided to get an opinion from one of my other friends who’s read this book. Here’s what she had to say: “It’s very spiritual and a great book for young woman. It gave me the desire to have a closer relationship with God.”

Rating: 8/10

The Sims Mobile

One of the apps I play on a regular basics these days is The Sims Mobile. It’s so much better than The Sims Freeplay in my opinion. (But nothing will replace The Sims Social in my heart.) I never really got into it because the graphics didn’t look nice and you have a whole town of Sims to control instead of the 1-4 in Mobile. Below is some of my house.

To My Mother

by Edgar Allan Poe

Because I feel that, in the Heavens above,
The angels, whispering to one another,
Can find, among their burning terms of love,
None so devotional as that of “Mother,”
Therefore by that dear name I long have called you—
You who are more than mother unto me,
And fill my heart of hearts, where Death installed you
In setting my Virginia’s spirit free
My mother—my own mother, who died early,
Was but the mother of myself; but you
Are mother to the one I loved so dearly,
And thus are dearer than the mother I knew
By that infinity with which my wife
Was dearer to my soul than its soul-life.
