Ask me anything   What I know, what I feel, what I like, what I'm learning and where I wish to visit--you can find here. My life is currently in the midst of being transformed by God through his grace and love. I'm Jennifer.

"God is shaping us, even in our doubts.

That’s what God does though, He takes us to the brink until we are shattered, then He picks us up and rebuilds us. It is a sweet breaking, one that leaves us more dependent than ever, but more loved and cherished than we thought.

I am learning to praise God, even when He is silent; what a blessing it is."

Maybe I need to start coming to terms with the fact that some situations aren’t going to work no matter how much I hope or want them to work out.

I’m becoming so engrossed in the present and forget to pause and look at the big picture and how this fits. Why am I trying to still dig through these shattered pieces? I’m thinking there’s still something there beyond what already exists. Sometimes I don’t know when to relent, which can be both a good and bad thing. I don’t know why I try to find the good in things sometimes because it ends up hurting me more than if I just left it alone.

Some things are just not meant to be and the hardest part for me, I’m learning, is accepting that reality.

Currently lying on my couch and thinking about how this point last year was so different than right now. I remember more than I should or need to.

Life is weird to me.

Good luck finding a quality girl that meets your criteria and doing what you consider to be important to a basis in a relationship. I’m relieved nothing of substance ever came from this except for me knowing guys like you exist and for me, when I have kids, to make it a point to teach my daughter to watch out for guys like you and my son to treat girls with respect without expectation. As for you, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to reconsider your priorities in a relationship either.

But thanks for the lessons.

My alcohol tolerance is a little too high, which stuns but worries me at the same time.

"Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions."
