Friday's Reflection

Based on the poll I created on my sidebar, I have found that 58% of you would like to see more personal posts. So this year, I will post "Friday's Reflection" in which I will recapture and reflect on my past week.

Feel free to participate! I am hoping that this will be a way to not only share a glimpse of my life with you, but to get to know more of you as well.

Here's how you can participate:
  • Post a "Friday's Reflection" on your blog on Fridays
  • Include the picture below
  • Link back to my blog
  • Paste your post's link in the comments below, and I will be sure to add it to this post!
  • Use any of the questions I have below, or come up with your own! =) 

This Week...

This week's scripture:

If we claim that we experience a shared life with him
and continue to stumble around in the dark,
we’re obviously lying through our teeth—
we’re not living what we claim.
~1 John 1:7

This week's quote:

How disappointing would it be get to heaven 
and find out God created life to be enjoyed 
while all we did was worry?
~Donald Miller

  1. Loved this =D I think I might do it next week since I don't have time today =/

    1. Thanks! No problem. Let me know when it's posted! =D

  2. Oh, your cousins are adorable! And there is going to be a sequel to Purple Moon? Eek! How exciting! Got to tell you, Tessa, I am really enjoying Purple Moon right now. Kudos to you for writing in the first person. I personally don't like to write in the first person since you can't describe the other persons emotions as well but you have done an excellent job! Maybe I should try again.Oh, and I might just think about doing a Fridays reflection on my blog sometime.


    1. I'm so glad to hear that you're enjoying it! For some reason, I prefer to write in first person over third. It helps me get inside my protagonist's head and see the world from her eyes. It's more difficult to do that when I write in third, although it's definitely not impossible. =)

      Let me know when your Friday's Reflection is up! I'd love to take a look.

      God bless!


Thanks for stopping by my blog!
