The Unchanging God – Words of Wisdom #16

Numbers 23:19 - New International Version (NIV)
God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?

Every morning, me and my Goodmommy say a prayer. Today, one of the things that I said was “Thank you (God) that you are not like man. Because if you were, we wouldn’t be here.”

I find it miraculous that even though we as people may change, the world may change, and seasons may change, God remains the same. He keeps every promise that me makes. He does exactly what He says He is going to do. He loves us regardless of how much we fall short of His glory. Even in all the darkness of the world, which is constantly in construction–economically, politically, socially, religiously, and in entertainment–God is an everlasting light that never falters through it all.

What a friend we have in God.

All in all, it is crucial that we as followers of Christ acknowledge and show gratitude that God isn’t like us. He could’ve executed all of human kind when He flooded the Earth, but He didn’t. He could make promises and then not go through with them, but He doesn’t. He could have called me home this morning, but He didn’t.

The reason why God is the unchanging God has nothing to do with us, besides his unconditional love for us. We have done nothing to cause this; if anything, we are undeserving of His unconditional love. Regardless, He gives it to us anyway. And that is a trait that we should all be thankful for. Thank you, Jesus!

Have a beautiful and blessed day everybody! See you later! ✨

5 Thoughtful Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day 💖

This Sunday is also known as Mother’s Day, where we celebrate the wonderful women whom God has blessed to deliver us into this world. No matter how old we are, our mothers are always an important part of our lives. They have given us their time through their nurturing kindness, everlasting wisdom, and love that lasts a lifetime.

So, on this special day of the year, it is important that we honor our mothers for their contributions in our lives, families, and communities. As a helping hand to everyone who has been contemplating what to do for their mothers this Mother’s Day, here are 5 thoughtful gift ideas that are sure to put a smile on her face.

Her Favorite Flowers

We can’t go wrong with a classic: a simple bouquet of our mom’s favorite flowers. Chances are, your mom has tossed around the flower or color of flowers that she likes the most. Not only are flowers beautiful with equally elegant aromas, but they can also show your mother that you pay attention to her comments and interests. A bouquet is a perfect way to show our moms how much we care.

A Gift Card

Most women have at least one favorite store or shop that they visit whenever they get some free time on their hands. Again, a good tip for gift giving is being attentive to little details such as this. A gift card is a cheap, simple, yet sweet way to treat your mother to a little something nice. After all they’ve done and bought for us on our special days, the least we can do is return the favor.

“Best Mom Ever” Mug

Does anyone here have a mom who loves a cup of Starbucks or home-made coffee in the mornings? If your response is “yes,” then a perfect gift for this Mother’s Day could be a quirky “Best Mom Ever” mug. A cup that our mothers can see and use daily serves as a constant reminder of our gratitude for every sacrifice that they’ve made for us.

Girls’ Spa Day

Most moms would love a day of relaxation. Therefore, what better way to meet that desire than by treating them to a nice spa day? Even if you don’t have the money to go out or you prefer to stay at home, you can easily whip up homemade face masks, a few robes, some cucumbers, and a nice dinner (with the help of a parent or guardian, of course.) No matter where the spa day takes place, your mom will surely enjoy it.

Sweet-smelling Perfume

Although every woman isn’t fond of the sweet scent of perfume, many (and I dare say most) are. If your mom happens to be a fan, then consider buying her a perfume of a scent that she enjoys. This is a great option for a gift, specifically if you are looking for something that will be long-lasting; a bottle of perfume could last your mother until next Mother’s Day!


Sure, materialistic gifts for Mother’s Day are always nice. However, we should never forget that the best gift our mothers could have for their special day is our time. Don’t feel pressured to get her something out of this world expensive; as long as she spends the day with her children, she will have a wonderful Mother’s Day, both this year, and every year to come. That’s something that no money could buy.

Thank you so much for reading, everybody! God bless you all! 💖

5 Qualities that I Value in a Teacher | Teacher Appreciation Week 💜

After COVID-19 hit, I think more people started to recognize the importance of teachers. Monday, May 2 – Friday, May 6 is Teacher Appreciation Week, which gives us the opportunity to contribute to all of those who are teaching and/or have taught us throughout our years of education.

Teaching has got to be one of the most important jobs in the world. So, as a thank you to every dedicated teacher around the world, I will be sharing 5 of the qualities that I value in a teacher, from the point of view of a soon-to-be high school freshman. Let’s get started!

1. Dedication to teaching (and learning along the way)

I am a strong believer than anyone who works should be dedicated to their job. Teachers who truly want to see their students reach the best of their potential and do everything in their power to help every child have success deserve a solute. In addition, I love it when teachers can acknowledge that although they are educated, there are still things that they can learn along the way, whether that is technology or learning strategies; no matter how good we are at something, there is always room to grow.

2. Strong communication

Relationships in general need a good sense of communication to be beneficial for both people. I feel seen when I have a teacher who is willing to make sure that I truly understand the topics that we are reviewing. Knowing that you can approach your teacher when you need their help is a big relief, as it shows me that they care about my growth and success as their student.

3. Patience, with a love to teach

I understand that some students can be A LOT to handle at some points, especially those who have frequent visits to the principal’s office. That being said, a teacher who is able to “handle the heat” in a calm and professional manner is likely a really good educator. This trait really shows me that the teacher can think about the best way to handle a situation in a timely manner. Along with this, I feel as though a teacher who isn’t easily angered is also able to show their empathy and genuine wish for the well-being of their students, another great quality for a teacher to have.

4. Preparation

One of my largest pet peeves (when it comes to education) is when a teacher isn’t prepared. This probably has something to do with the fact that I’m an early bird, but my opinion still stands. Although I don’t think this is the ONLY good quality of a good teacher (by far), I appreciate when a teacher is organized, and keeps good time management. Although everything doesn’t always go as planned, the ability to stay on the schedule is a very admirable trait to have in an educator.

5. Fun, interactive classes

Last, but definitely not least, I STRONGLY value when a teacher has fun classes. Sure, watching a video presentation and taking some notes will get the job done, but the lessons where visuals, audio, and hands-on activities are combined tend to be the most effective (not to mention the most fun.) I think that if every teacher knew how to make their classes enjoyable, then many more kids and teenagers would enjoy learning. That’s why I give a tip of the hat to every teacher who makes sure they are reaching all types of learners.


Teachers are an extremely important part of our society. Think about it: our teachers are with us almost as much as we are with our parents or guardians. They take a huge part in raising children to be educated and responsible adults once they enter the real world. This is exactly why every good teacher in the world deserves the utmost gratitude. They are truly a blessing from the Lord.

Thanks to all of my dedicated, wonderful teachers (from the present and the past), who have taught me things to last a lifetime.

LET’S CHAT~ What 5 qualities do YOU value most in a teacher? Feel welcome to comment down below.

In all honesty, when it comes to every trait that makes a good teacher, I believe that I only scratched the surface, with this list. I can even think of a few other good qualities, at the top of my head. Oh, well. There’s always next year. (Hint, hint 😋✨😉)

Have a beautiful and blessed day, everybody! May God bless you all and I’ll “see” you next time!✨

My Role Model (and why we all need one) ♡

Almost everyone has (or has had) a role model during their formative years. Many adults will recall a person who they looked up to and helped them become the person they are to this day. Our role models are the people who help form us into responsible adults and help prepare us for the real world. That’s exactly why every kid and teenager needs a good role model in their life.

Now, some of you may wonder who my role models are. Although Jesus himself is the role model for all of us, and the generations who will follow, I believe that God always puts at least 1 person in our lives to be a second role model. For me, that person is Goodmommy, my grandmother and guardian who I love very dearly.

What I love about Goodmommy so much is that she is a Godly woman. Throughout her life, her joys and trials were God’s way of teaching her, not only so she can be knowledgeable, but also that she may pass on the wisdom that God has given her by instilling it in me. That is why I am so thankful to Him for placing this role model in my life: He knew exactly who I needed to be my example. 💖 Thank you, Jesus! 💖

Goodmommy is and will always be one of my best friends (right after Jesus and myself.) Not only do we do everything together, but she is always a joy to be around. There are very few instances that we are together without filling the room with laughter. No matter what, even with our very rare disagreements, we always come back together again, apologize, and continue in love. Every day is a day of love, joy, and laughter.

Role models can come in many forms. While some look up to their parents or grandparents, others may see an older sibling or a friend as their role model. Just keep in mind that even though we all have positive role models, there is a such thing as a negative role model, too. In everything, make sure that the people you surround yourself with are willing to invest in you to be the best person that you can be.

The people that will stay by your side (through your joys AND your trials) are people worth keeping around. Thank them for being your role models; we never know when our last chance to do so will be.

LET’S CHAT~Who is your role model? What’s an important lesson that you’ve learned from them?

Thank you so much for joining me today! God bless you all and I’ll “see” you next time! ✨

God blesses us so we can be a blessing – Words of Wisdom #13

Philippians 2:3-4 New International Version (NIV)
3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

Try to think of all the things in life to be thankful for….the truth is, there’s probably too many to count. And thank God for it.

Every second, minute, hour and day on this Earth is a blessing from the Lord. But the thing is, it’s one thing to be blessed, and it’s another to use your blessings to bless others.

How can we spread God’s love if we do things hoping for a selfish outcome? In order to be His examples as His children, we should be on the lookout for how we can invest in others, just like God has invested (and continues to invest) in us.

God may show us something or put something in our lives not only so that we may be blessed, but so that we may use it for His glory by doing something kind in the interests of others.

Keep in mind that blessing people is different from letting others take advantage of you. While giving is always a blessing from the Lord, the truth is that there can be people who we may encounter in life who might try to take advantage of our kindness. And if you ever encounter that type of person, always know that its okay to distance yourself from them, if needed. You don’t need to try to be friends with everyone in order to be respectful and kind towards them.

That being said, if you have extra food, why not give it to people who need it? If you have a day(s) on your calendar that are empty, why not take the opportunity to volunteer? If you feel really good today, why not show a smile? And if we can pray for our friends, why not pray for our enemies?

Genesis 12:2-3 New International Version (NIV)
2 I will make you into a great nation,
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
3 I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.

Being a blessing can come in many forms– a smile, a prayer, a hug, or even a few words of encouragement can do the trick. Even when you can’t do something big, do something small. It’s little things that add up.

The more God blesses us, the more we can be a blessing. So who has God placed in YOUR spirit to be a blessing to today?

World Autism Awareness Day | How to Support the Cause 💙

April is National Autism Awareness Month, Every April 2, also dubbed World Autism Awareness Day, is for autism organizations around the world, as well as people with autism and their supporters to come together in the stride of giving people with autism, also known as Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), an opportunity to reach their entire potential in political, economic and social platforms.

Considering that about 1 in 54 people under the age of 21 are diagnosed with autism every year in the United States (at least, according to various online sources) it’s very easy to say that autism is very common. The amount of diagnoses seem to have risen every decade. As a result, many people, including myself, have 1 or more family member(s) or friend(s) that has autism.

Because autism affects many children (and people, in general) around the world, it’s important that we do our best to support people with autism and their stride to make a difference in the communities. But, how exactly do we become aware, understand, accept, and support the cause for equality? That is where I come in.

Disclaimer~Let me say that I cannot speak from the point of view of a person in the autism spectrum. Every person, with or without autism, is different, so if you are in the spectrum, an advocate, or simply someone wanting to learn more about the subject, feel free to add any feedback in the comments to add onto to what I say and/or express your thoughts on other ways to support autism acceptance. Thanks! ♡

Back to my main subject: here are a few ways to support the cause! Enjoy!

1.) Address a Person with Autism with Respect — Most of the time, it is generally standard to refer to someone who has autism as a “person with autism” rather than an “autistic person,” if a situation where you are introducing them comes into play. While the two phrases may seem like the same thing to some, putting the word “person” before the word “autism” is acknowledging the person or people as individuals and human beings before the fact that they are in the autistic spectrum. However, you may want to ask the person with autism what they prefer to be referred to, and go based on that, as the answer can vary depending on the individual.

2.) Befriend or Spend Time with a Person in the Autism Spectrum — Try spending time with a person who has autism. Sometimes, it takes hands-on experience of being with a person to be able to understand them and how they think on another level. Showing support towards someone who is affected by autism can be a great way to spread awareness to your community and be an advocate towards the cause of celebrating differences.

3.) Educate Yourself — It can be a little tough to support a cause when you aren’t even completely aware of what autism is, how it affects people, and what you can do to help. All it takes is a little internet research to set you in motion to being a better example and advocate in your community.

4.) Donate to Charitable (and Reliable) Autism Organizations — This one may be a little obvious, but its always a great idea to support a good cause of any kind by donating to organizations that pour back into their communities. If you’d like to find some autism organizations, click HERE to view a list.

5.) Wear Blue — Blue is the “official” color to celebrate autism awareness and spreading the word in our communities. Therefore, another nice way to show your support is wearing the color blue throughout April. You can even post a selfie of yourself wearing blue and include the tag #LightitUpBlue to put a stamp on the statement that you will be making through the color.

Thank you all so much for reading some tips for how to celebrate World Autism Awareness Day as well as Autism Awareness Month. This post was really rewarding to write~it makes me happy to use my love for writing to spread awareness of messages of equality and unity.

Autism is not a disability in any shape or form. It is just another beautiful way to see the world.

Have a beautiful and blessed day, everybody! 💙

An open letter to my younger self…

Dear younger self,

First of all, let me say that I love you, and I know what you’re facing: I was you. While I’m not that much older than you, and I still have much to learn, I hope that you will read these words with an open heart. God has given me lots of wisdom, and like you I am learning every day. I still have things that I need to do and I still have imperfections. But through it all, God has always been there for us, and He always will be. This is the advice that I have for you.

Just be you. I know that you may look in the mirror and see imperfections. But God says that you’re beautiful, inside and out. Even with your flaws, you are the apple of His eye. Don’t ever look in the mirror and wish you looked like someone you’re not. From now on, when you look at your reflection, say “If God says that I’m beautiful, then I think so, too.” The more you say it, the more you’ll believe it. Just shine. Be the the light in the darkness that God chose you to be.

It’s okay to have just a couple friends, because sometimes “friends” can be the same people who will try to take advantage of you in your highs and abandon you in your lows. However, through it all, God is your friend. You are your friend. Goodmommy is your friend. And you might even meet one or two more friends along the way~but don’t rush it. For the Bible says that a friend will stick closer than a brother. And considering that we have a great little brother already, I know that can be pretty hard to beat, LOL.

Keeping the peace is more important than being right. I know that you’re a perfectionist. I am, too. Naturally, we want everything to be perfect all the time. Sometimes, we might think that something isn’t fair or that someone owes us an apology. We might think it in our heads. But a rule to always remember is avoid speaking everything that pops up in your brain. Every thought isn’t meant to be spoken. And if you ever need guidance, pray about it. God will tell you what to do. He’s good like that.

Don’t compare yourself to people. There will be times where you may look at someone else and think that they’ve got everything together. They may always have the biggest smile on their face. They may be popular. They may be pretty. They may be rich in money and jewels. But never forget that sometimes only God knows what’s happening beneath the surface. Rich in money is far from the same thing as rich in peace, joy, and love.

Stop worrying about what other people think about you. What do YOU think about you? What do the people who love you for who you are think about you? And most importantly, what does GOD think about you? What does He call you in His Word? These are the voices that you should listen to. The rest is nothing but background noise.

Let God fight your battle. Life might not be easy in every moment. You may need to make important decisions, and sometimes you might not know what to do. If and when these moments come, be still and listen. Let God fight for you, because He’s already won this battle. Some of the trials that we face are simply a test, where God is asking us “Will you keep your faith in Me?” In everything, God is able. And in His timing, the perfect timing, every season will pass. And with each season, God will make you stronger in Him.

With lots of love,

– Your future, teenage self ♡

If you could say anything to your younger self, what would it be? Feel free to share your thoughts in the chat. I’m super excited to hear from you!

Thank you all so much for reading! Have a beautiful and blessed day, everyone! God bless you all! ♡

Wherever You Go, Sprinkle Love – Words of Wisdom #10

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV (New International Version)
4
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. …

If you’ve ever wondered what true love is, then this scripture sums it up completely. God is love, and He showed us how much He loves us when He sent His only Son to die for us and give us eternal life, so long as we confess with our mouth that He is God and believe in our hearts that He died for us and rose 3 days later. (Romans 10:9)

As followers of Jesus Christ, it is important that we continue to be evangelists for God by spreading His love. There are many different ways to spread God’s love to others. Whether you do something for a specific person, or a simple act towards a complete stranger, spreading the love of God is always a blessing that we should act upon in our everyday lives.

Here are a few simple ways to spread the Love of God:

  • Be proactive in loving like God — If you ever have trouble with this one, please write down the scripture at the top of this post. We are told to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. (Leviticus 19:18)
  • Do simple acts of kindness — The Love of God can be shown in many ways. Sometimes, all it takes is a little kindness.
  • Learn to forgive others — Forgiveness does not have to be for the other person. Nor does the person who hurt you have to remain in your life. When we forgive, we are making sure that we are right with God and that we maintain a spirit of love and a pure heart.
  • Be a cheerful giver — This one sort of speaks for itself. The Bible says that to be a cheerful giver, we must “sow bountifully” if we want to “receive bountifully.” In other words, we need to be willing to give freely and without hesitation in order for God to bless us abundantly. (2 Corinthians 9:6-7)
  • Pray for people — This can be tough, sometimes. Particularly when it comes to praying for your enemies. But the Bible says to love your neighbors and your enemies. (Matthew 5:43-48) Sometimes praying for people means asking God to help someone that you hold close to your heart (family, friends, etc.) Other times, it can mean that you are asking God to teach us how to forgive, and to help our enemies to see His glory.

Words of Wisdom is probably one of my favorite (if not THE favorite) series on my blog, and I hope you enjoyed this new episode. Thank you so much for reading about sprinkling love.

5 Qualities I Value in a True Friend – Reblog

Author’s Note: What’s up, y’all. Today, I’m going to do a reblog of one of my favorite posts where I share 5 of the main qualities that I value in a friend. I hope you all enjoy! ~ Q’Zion ⭐

If you had to choose 5 words to describe each of your friends, what would they be? Afterwards, think about 5 things that you value in a good friend. How many qualities do your friends have in common with your list?

In our teenage years, it’s natural to desire to be popular and have a lot of friends. However, it may be shocking when we realize that there are only a few people who really have our best interests at heart. This doesn’t mean that anyone is perfect. It just means that it’s better to judge whether a person is your friend or not by how they treat you and who they are as a person, instead of how pretty or popular they are.

Today, I wanted to share 5 Qualities that I Value in a True Friend. If you would like, you can comment your values, either in a friend in general or the friends that you already have, down below!

  1. Loyalty

Although it’s a sad reality, there are a lot of people that will pretend to be your friend, and act like they don’t know you, the next day. I really appreciate a friend that sticks by my side, no matter what. Even though we might not always agree, I appreciate people who always have my back, despite the bumps in the road that we might face from time to time.

2. Honesty

Another thing that I love is when a person can admit their mistakes or feelings. I know that no one, except God, of course, is perfect. However, when we do make mistakes, it’s a good thing to apologize for what we did. Also, if a friend of mine feels a certain way about a situation, them explaining to me how they feel allows better communication, and therefore, a better relationship!

3. Humor

Do any of you have that friend that can make you smile, even when your day isn’t going as planned? If so, then you know how awesome of a feeling that is. Personally, being someone who loves to laugh, a friend who knows how to make me giggle, especially when I really need it, is a great friend in my book.

4. A kind heart

This is pretty practical, but I value a friend who is kind. This not only means that they are kind to me, but that they try their best to be kind to everyone around them. A person who can get along with a majority of people that they meet, and truly has a heart for people is a person that I truly respect and will likely get along with.

5. A cheerful attitude

Never have I liked to be around negativity. Therefore, having a friend that is optimistic and just about always in a good mood can make me feel good as well. Positivity is the absolute best policy!

I hope you all enjoyed my list of 5 Qualities that I Value in a True Friend. Remember, a good friend is not a perfect person, but a person who has a good heart and spirit. The inside is what matters most!

Have a wonderful day everyone! ✨

A warm smile is an act of kindness

There’s nothing like a nice, warm smile that can completely change the tone of someone’s day.

Smiling is a simple way to spread joy, sometimes without even knowing it. And it doesn’t require any money or commitment; you don’t even need to know a person to smile at them.

At times, it’s the simplest things that can make the biggest differences in how we live, act, and think. One smile can make someone else smile, and their smile can make another person smile. It’s a chain reaction spreads a positive result; a message of hope for the future. It doesn’t need to be big or fancy. It costs absolutely nothing in cash to brighten someone’s day with a grin.

Let me tell you a true story about a man who jumped from the Golden Gate Bridge. During investigations, officers found a note that said: “I’m going to walk to the bridge. If one person smiles at me, I will not jump.”

A smile can be all it takes to completely change someone’s life. And guess what, knowing that will make you feel good, too.

It never hurts to smile! In fact, here are just a few reasons why we should SMILE every day. ☺️

Smiling helps us stay positive — When we show off our pearly whites, it helps us to focus on the positive side of any situation. It’s tough to be sad when we have a smile on our face. It automatically decreases stress hormones and releases a chemical called endorphins to make us feel happier.

Smiling is contagious — One of the best parts of a smile is that it’s contagious–when we see a bright grin, we can’t help but replicate the smile on our own face.

Smiling is good for our hearts — Just like laughing, smiling is known to reduce our chances of contracting heart disease. It also helps us remain stress-free, which reduces the amount of strain on our bodies. Smiling is good for the soul, mind, and body.

Smiling is a friendly gesture — A smile is like a magnet; it attracts people to you. Not only does smiling help display our friendly personalities, but studies have shown that it also makes us look more attractive. It’s only natural to assume that someone has a nice personality when they’re smiling.

It costs absolutely nothing to smile — I think this one seriously speaks more for itself. Smiling is a free and kind thing to do. There’s no reason not to smile. If anything, it costs more not to smile than to do so. We have absolutely nothing to loose with a grin–it feels so good!


All in all, it really never hurts to smile. In fact, it does quite the opposite for us and those around us. Why stand by and wait for someone else to smile? Sure, smiles are small–but small things can be powerful.

Let’s be the ones to make a difference, today. Comment #smile in the chat to spread some love.

Have a beautiful and blessed day! Peace in! 💖
