~ So hehe I wanted to write post this on wordpress and just share what I’m thankful for. I wrote this done during Back to School Con (on Saturday) before School started this semester for many reasons. I was reminded of how faithful god has been and continue to be in my life. This is a reminder each day and time when It feels like he isn’t present or when its so hard.  Anyway thanks for readingXD
