The Next Chapter: February

New Month. The Journey Continues

Today signifies the beginning of a new chapter. Still the same journey however we are taking another step forward and stepping into the “month of love.” February has never been a great month for me because so many bad memories are attached to this month. However, with my change in attitude, I would like to define this month on my own terms and allow God to take the lead even now. I am so excited about this new month, especially to see what it has in store for me.
It’s a leap year and we get to propose ladies. Exciting? Well, I don’t know. Anyhow, this is as per Irish tradition of course which is believed to would have begun after St. Bridget complained to St. Patrick about women having to wait long for a man to propose. Well, it very much still is the case even today. Women wait impatiently for the man to propose and some even go to the extent of going to extremes to get that ring. Anyway, since it’s a leap year, this is your chance to propose. You have a whole 28 days to plan everything and on the 29th pop the question. Interesting stuff hey. Well, it is what it is. If it is indeed what you want, then why not.
The journey continues and NO I won’t be proposing to anyone! However, I will continue to build my relationship with God and do that which He has purposed me to do. I will allow Him to order my steps and the only love I will be celebrating this month is His and I am entirely content with that fact. I expressed my view on love on one article I published earlier on in January and through that part of my journey as well as reflecting back on past relationships, I learned that you can only receive that which you exude. If you love and accept yourself first, then the next person will offer you the same. I begin this month with 1 Corinthians 13 inscribed in my heart which is the perfect definition of what love is meant to be.
So, February I welcome you in faith and receive you with love. I know that you will be good to me and Lord thank you for being with me through this journey. I receive your blessings wholeheartedly so. Let’s take everything that will come our way in stride friends and journey on! Have a great month!
Grounded in Faith
