Trials and Tribulations

Wow! I am ever amazed at this life that we live. Although different from person to person, no one is short of their own personal struggles and the circumstances that leave us worn out and weary. Why is life so hard? Why is it so much harder for some than it is for others?

In the midst of the storm, I pray strong prayers and I praise God for it all because I know He is in control and there is nothing that I cannot handle. Although I know this to be true, I have to continue to remind myself as my patience for the craziness wears thin and tears emerge out of no where occasionally.

Dear Lord, keep us and protect us as we live our lives in this crazy world where evil knocks on our door daily.

Laser Tattoo Removal Update #4

Hello there. I wanted to do a quick laser tattoo removal update. It has been six weeks since my first laser treatment. I was actually supposed to go for my second treatment today but for various reasons I rescheduled it for next month. I must say that I am really happy right now with how this tattoo removal process is coming along. In my last update, I told you that my skin was whitish in certain areas after the skin peeled off. There was a small fear that I would lose the brown pigmentation in my skin permanently but I no longer have that concern. The areas that were whitish in color are now back skin tone almost completely. The skin around the tattoo had turned a dark brown almost blackish color and that has faded to almost skin tone as well. So as of right now, no scarring, no discoloration that seems to be permanent, no problems. I really wish I could go for my second treatment today but I could not so I will update you all again after my second treatment.

God is Faithful

I am the type of person that goes out of my way to look for ways to make people’s lives a little better. Literally. If I can help you, I will without hesitation. I think that is the secret of life --- go out of your way to genuinely love and care for others. Imagine what kind of world we would live in if everyone did this. 

Unfortunately, recently I have been shown that there is evil in this world and that people don’t care. That people don’t have a conscience and they make decisions based on their own selfish wants. I’ve thought about changing who I am because the more positive energy I put out into the world, the more I get ran over and abused. But I won’t change. I am hurting, deep to my core. I am confused because I am sure this is not how things are supposed to be.
I still have faith in good but lately that faith has been tested. I still have faith in God and NOTHING will change that. I rest assured that no evil is greater than my Father. No weapon formed against me shall prosper. No enemy shall win while I am under the protection of the only One who is worthy of praise and worship. I am a little depressed right now but I am leaning on my Lord and he is carrying me through. I choose to praise God through the good and bad. God is faithful. Praise His Name.
