You are beautiful!
In my image I made you
from the dust of earth.
May you prosper, child!
Seek Me first in your life and
you will have treasures…

Your pictures are fantastic, Grace…(a bit gruesome with some of the spiders, however)…hehe!
Thank you! 🙂 ♥ LOL, gotta keep people on their toes by occasionally including them! XD
See how you are! You like a bit of “banter” in your life, despite being shy. I’ll bet you can stand on your own two feet pretty well when you have to… 🙂
Haha, you’re right; I do like a bit of “banter” in my life. 😊 Aww, thanks. 🙂 ♥ blushes
Sure, people with some “smarts” between their ears form opinions because they are always thinking about the things of life. Also the creative ones…they ponder everything! They need outlets to express ideas…
Pondering about the things of life is is a great pastime. 🙂 LOL, yes; I know if I didn’t get some of what is inside my head out, my brain might explode. XD
That is so true for all of us. Care to share what kinds of things you are pondering? What to do with your life in general? Job? School? Romance? Personal beliefs? etc…or maybe other things?
“Questions, question, questions – how dull life would be without them!” (Quote from a computer game, but it’s still true! 😂)
Yes, what to do with my life in general is up there. Because I have a hard time talking to people I don’t know (off-line XD ) I wonder how I will do many things, like have a job, or go to church. God is slowly leading me to conquering the anxiety though, I think.
Personal beliefs is definitely one of them. I wasn’t pondering it much before but in your email… “Hey, in your next email, why don’t you tell me what you believe about God and Jesus.” I went completely blank, and that worried me a lot. What if someone wanting to know more about Jesus asked that and I went blank? It would be a missed opportunity that could have serious repercussions. This is not something to go blank on. 😳 I’m so glad you asked though, so it could be addressed!
I’m not too worried about romance right now; I feel like I’m not ready for it yet. At this point, I really want to concentrate on Jesus; and if He leads me to someone, that would be great, but if not, I’m fine with that too. 🙂
When I was in my mid to late teens, I was a very shy person. But for some reason, I just started to break out of it. I think I liked some young lady and knew she’d never go for a shy guy, so I just started to talk…even make jokes or have something funny to say. I eventually grew right out of the shy thing…and I know you will too. Just don’t worry about how you sound to others, or if they will like you or not. It is hard to do at first, but keep trying to join in conversations. If you go to the right church, they will not be so judgmental. They will do what they can to help you come out of your “shell.” Hold your head up and address your shyness when you go out to places. Answer these questions in your mind about your life and look for opportunities to break free of the “quiet Grace!” Let God help, but don’t expect that He’ll do it all for you. You need to put in the work yourself.
“Questions, questions, questions, within them lie answers…and knowledge!”
That’s really encouraging. 😊 Thank you! ♥
But it’s so safe inside my shell! (I feel like a turtle when I say that. 😂) Seriously though, I will try. 🙂 It’s funny how I’m not shy with people I know, it’s just the people I don’t know.
Yes, I’m willing to do the work! 🙂
Indeed! 😀 Questions lead to answers and knowledge!
That’s the way to go, Grace. A new world will awaken within you if you can beat the shyness cycle! It’s good that you don’t have that problem with people you know. And lots of people are shy or nervous around strangers. But break through those things and you’ll have a new confidence. After all, what’s not to like about you, Grace! Reach out…explore!!
😀 I look forward to seeing that new world!
Aww. blushes Thanks! 🙂 I’ll stick my head out of my turtle shell and try to explore. 🙂
