Happy New Year!

Hello Blog!  Long time no…type?!  Have I used that before?  Well, it doesn’t matter.  Life has kept me busy, and things have happened and sadly my blog has been the one thing I put on the bottom of my list to do and usually don’t have time to.  I have so many ideas for posts too (yeah yeah, I’ve said that before!), so it’s been hard not having time to post my ideas.  But!  I am working on a “schedule” where I’ll write out my ideas, choose one, and post it weekly or bi-weekly.  And most likely randomly post when I have thoughts to share.

So, how is the new year treating you?  Good I hope!  It’s January 20th!  Although I can’t say it has necessarily gone by quickly, it is a little strange how it’s the 20th already and I haven’t started anything, changed anything, done anything different, etc etc etc…why has it been so hard for me to manage my time?!  *sigh*

Here are my main “resolutions”:

  1. Have a time of prayer and bible reading every day.
  2. Start exercising more consistently.
  3. Be open to opportunities and trying new things.
  4. Get my room situated and peaceful.
  5. Wait, be content, and trust God to lead me through my life.  But do stuff that I love while waiting (if that makes sense).

When I write out goals or resolutions I use to be very hard on myself about accomplishing them and I usually never would accomplish anything.  But nowadays I set a few things to accomplish at my own pace; although I do try to push myself because lately, especially, I have been SO lazy and , like I mentioned before, managing my time horribly.  Anyway!

It is a new year…memories come and go, new ones are made, you decide to start over or start for the first, and live in the moment, or at least try to.  Looking back at the year that flew by SO fast it really wasn’t even funny, here are some things I have learned:

  1. Communication is very important.  Really and truly.  Not only actually communicating with people, but the way and the circumstances of communicating are important!  There were multiple times last year that I communicated “wrong” or not at all and it didn’t end well.  It’s so important!
  2. Trusting God.  That may sound silly or elementary, but it’s something, if I may be so bold, that is not very easy for everyone, including me!  Here’s what I learned; who created the world?  God.  Who loves us more then anything that He sent is Son to die for our sins and give us the gift Salvation?  God.  Who knows our whole life before we are even born?  God.  So WHO is going to be in the “future”, the unknown, preparing the way for us?  GOD!  So do we need to be afraid?  No!  Do we need to trust Him 100% and then some?  YES!  So lets do just that!
  3. It’s okay to think and try to figure things out.  Don’t isolate yourself 24/7, don’t be afraid to share your thoughts with someone else, and don’t feel like you’ve wasted time spending it on getting to know yourself by thinking and being idle for a little while.
  4. People don’t care.  I mean this in the way of being self conscious or embarrassed about something.  Just do the things you want to do and you love to do and never allow someone else’s assumed or supposed opinion stop you!  Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”.  Live it.  Be confident.  Don’t care about people’s negative opinions.
  5. Time (seems to) passes fast!  I believe that God is in control of all time, therefore there is always enough time, but visually for us we have time mapped out in 24 hour days, 7 days a week, and we usually try to micromanage every, single, second…it’s overwhelming and stressful and MAN I just want to give my time to God!  Father, allow me to use my time wisely, for Your will, to be open and willing to do and go where You are leading me.  Thank you for everything.  I trust you, Lord, with my life.  In Jesus’ name, Amen!

So, no matter what happens, no matter where He leads you, no matter what decisions you make, no matter how a story ends, God is so gracious, merciful, loving, caring, healing, powerful, strong, mighty, and awesome, that we have nothing to fear and I want to encourage you, as well as myself, to keep going.  Just keep on going no matter what life throws your way.  Keep going.  And with your eyes on Jesus, I can very assuredly guarantee you will be blessed, provided for, protected, and loved every step of the way.

God bless you, and thank you so much for stopping by whether you’ve been here before or not!  It means a lot.  Have an amazing rest of this week.  Stay warm and safe!

Jennafifi just might be getting a makeover soon, and I am going to set up my posting schedule so I can get this blog back up and running!  It’s a new year and I’m excited about it!  Bye for now!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015!

Happy New Year Everybody!  I am really looking forward to this new year and this new month.  It’s so nice to think of January as a clean slate or fresh start, you know?  Just getting your mind in the right place and taking a deep breath before taking the next step(s) forward.

I pray that this year will be full of new experiences, opportunities and God’s blessing and provision.  Thank you all who have supported my blog, although the past year was a Jennafifi dud, haha, lets see what 2015 will bring.

God bless and have a wonderful day and a great weekend!!

Oh!  I put together this photo collage/video of some pictures I took throughout the year.  I took a lot of pictures, but I there’s only about 60 something in this video AND the music is some that I recorded myself, so please watch, share and let me know what you think!  It’s a bit rough, but it’s a start.  Thank you!

Much love,

Jenny~

Christmas time is here!  Thanksgiving is gone, lots of birthdays have passed, lots are coming, and lots of time has past especially since I have last posted, and life in general is just passing.  On that note…

Dear Jennafifi, I’m alive!  I can’t say we’ve had a great year of blogging because I really haven’t at all this year, but that’s ok.  There are so many posts that I started and a lot of things I wanted to share, but when I had time to do it I guess I wanted to do something else more.  I’ve missed blogging this year though!

So, it’s Christmas Eve!  Wow!  Why has this year seemed to zoom by faster then anything?!  I usually can’t remember last Christmas by the time it comes around again, but I remember Christmas 2013 pretty clearly!  Everything I’ve been involved with, every event, every person, etc, has all just phased me and then swoosh, it’s gone hardly leaving a mark to remember.  Can anyone relate?  I hardly remember anything I’ve done this year because it has just cruised on by.

I feel like the past few times I’ve posted it has been more serious or just me trying to organize my crazy thoughts.  There is just so much on my mind and at the same time I don’t really think about anything!  Makes no sense.  Anyway.  I won’t go on and on about my thoughts, sorry guys.

Santa Claus is coming tonight, oh my gosh!  Santa has already come to Korea to see our dear family there!  It’s Christmas morning in Korea as I type this.  It has been so busy in my life lately.  I have been so exhausted since this summer; I feel like I could use a good hibernation.  I can’t believe, truly, that it’s Christmas and that the Miller’s have been across the sea for five months!

Well, I know I haven’t been on here in a while and this post was pretty short, but I have things to do before the morning and a Skype meeting with the Korean folks to attend to, so may your day be merry and bright, and may all your Christmases be red, green, and white!  Merry Christmas, much love and I might as well say Happy New Year!  Crazy…

God Bless!
