This Month’s Picks: April 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz This month has been a whirlwind. A fulfillment of many things awaited. I can say that things did not happen the way I anticipated, but better; and not by my doing, but God in His infinite mercy orchestrates amazing things in our lives. I am so blessed. God has acted in my…

Reflections Before Bedtime #22

By: Gabriela Yareliz My random thoughts of the night: Life surprises us in the wildest ways. We make plans, God laughs (that kind of thing). Sometimes, dreaming big can cost you, literally, but then faith comes through to repay all debts. Maybe, when we think we are lost, if we look close enough, we realize that…

Reflections Before Bedtime #21

By: Gabriela Yareliz Several random thoughts: When Aladdin asked Jasmin, “Do you trust me?” That was a deep question…You should only take risks and go on magic carpet rides with someone you would say ‘yes’ to.

Monday Inspiration: April 20, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz This weekend: I went to a beach in Long Island by impulsively stepping into a van that looks like an Access-a-Ride (totally unplanned trip); made it to the beach, but it was too cold to stand outside; got stuck in crazy traffic on a bridge as we were making our way back into Manhattan; a girl…

One Step At A Time

By: Gabriela Yareliz The problem is we always want the best and most worthy things to come fast. But they don’t come fast; they never do, nor should they. No matter how life seems to break you, even still, it is preparing you for where God wants to take you.
