I'm so fascinated with the way I look in pictures. What is that about? I can sit for hours on end, fiddling around with my Twitter page, just staring at my avatar. I found myself doing this tonight, as soon as I changed my picture. This cannot be healthy.

I had the same problem with Facebook... or, on Facebook I should say. Imagine countless photo albums upon albums instead. That was before I deactivated my Facebook account though [go figure?]

Here's my recent photo. Taken in November, the day I got my new [DKNY] frames:


black and white

I really don't know what this is about. I don't even post many pictures on my blog for this very reason. I'm only the face behind the Spirit. God is in control of me.

And, sometimes I resent myself for being so absorbed in my beauty... [insert goofy laugh here]. I thank God for it, my attributes and all-- I wouldn't change it for the world.

I just pray sincerely that I do not become any less humble. It's pretty serious. I've considered, and have actually replaced my default pictures and avatars with images like a cross, a flower, or something similar... [you've seen those avatars too!] I love looking at myself, and that's the problem; but for many it's not! [??] It's all about personal conviction [see Book of Romans 12].

There's a scripture:
James 1:22-27, NKJV
22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.
26 If anyone among youb]" [b] thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless.

It is as if I may have somehow "forgotten" what I look like, since I have a tendency to stare at my photos for so long. So strange. There's a scripture for everything.

LORD, help us to be humble in Your sight. To be lowly in heart, spirit, thought and action. Meek in our [Your] ways and seeking Your face always for repentance. Lift us up in Your sight, according to Your will.

I Peter 5:6-11, NKJV
6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
8 Be sober, be vigilant; becausec]" [c] your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. 10 But mayd]" [d] the God of all grace, who called use]" [e] to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 11 To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

This is my blog and it's an account of my life, my pursuits, love and devotion to a HOLY and righteous God in Heaven. I desire not to see anyone stumble, beloved. BE in Christ. Let us examine our ways.
2 Corinthians 13:5
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

In Christ,

@ 11:01 p.m. Searched "the thoughts of man" on would you believe this is the single scripture it turned up? ... "The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity." Psalm 94:11.


  1. Hey darlin',

    This is a great post. Thank you for your humility. You are so beautiful, and you should praise YHWH for that, for sure. It's funny that you wrote this because I have recently found myself so focused on... myself. I am grateful for your post because it brought upon much needed convictions. The Father is doing something, I know this... I just hope that I will listen and obey.

    May YHWH bless you.

    There is something I am trying to master, and that is: loving my neighbor as myself - and I'm struggling with the self... what is too much attention to self? What is too little? There is so much to learn in this walk, but I praise the Father for being patient and always teaching His children. :)

    Blessings girl,
