Today I decided to take time to pray and fast again. This time thankfully Minnie my cat behaved much better than she did yesterday so I was able to focus better however my heart was still very heavy. I spent a lot of time crying out to God where I just repented before Him and asked Him to strip away everything that is not of Him in my life.

I do apologize to you that I cannot share any details on my blog but I do need your prayers at this time because it is an emotionally difficult time for me and I feel like it is a real spiritual battle. Thanks for your prayers.

In the afternoon I spoke to my friend Kim on Skype about what’s going on. She encouraged me a lot but she also gave me a lot of advice too. I am so glad that we were able to talk because she gave me a lot of insight and challenged me a lot. She had a lot of wisdom in what she told me and so I took time to journal down her advice of what she gave me.

This is some of the advice that she gave me:

–   I have to stop speaking out of my emotions to people but I have to start filtering what          I’m going to say to people and to who exactly I say it to.

–   Before I say anything I need to stop and ask the Holy Spirit to guide me in what He              wants me to say. To pray and ask for His wisdom.

–   I need to ask God to help me have a more joyful attitude and not be a person that brings      any negatively to people including any complaining (even in the stressful times).

In the evening I posted a new photo album on my facebook page when the children at the Sabolciu gypsy village got their brand new flip flops and swimsuits! I would like to thank everyone for being a part of this project which was a combined project. Thank-you so much for making it possible for these precious children to have something to wear on their feet and also something for them to wear when they go swimming! If you have facebook and we’re friends please check out the pictures and enjoy!
