This is a poem/letter written out to my niece. She hasn't had the easiest life. She has grown up in a broken home and is still struggling to understand life. So, I wrote this to encourage her along the way. Jasmin, I love you!
I always try to be poetic when describing myself. And though it is easy for me to write a poem about my feelings, I tend to freeze when describing who I am. Yet, I still know I am a confident woman; who knows who I am and in Whom my identity lies.
I have dreams that I know will become realities because many of my dreams God has promised me. I want to see the world changed, leave a legacy, get married, have children, publish a book, travel to places I have yet to see, live in a foreign country for a few years, be a missionary... the list goes on and on.
I also have many fears but I am learning to hand them over. I am learning to believe that God has not given me a spirit of fear but of power, love and self-discipline (2Timothy 1:7). And that God is love and love casts out all fear (1 John 4:18).
I enjoy pearls (even the fake ones), polka dots, saddle shoes... lighthouses and other nautical things... photography, poetry, music, crafts and reading... serving God and serving others...
