June 1, 2010 I published the last issue (at least for a while) of Girl Talk my teen girl magazine. Since this blog was originally designed for the purpose of publishing weekly devotions for the magazine and later the magazine itself I decided to create another blog that isn’t connected to Girl Talk.

I’ll probably still publish book reviews or other items here now and again but you’ll more often find me at Trusting Him with Today. I hope you’ll stop by

My Personal Holiday

Today is my personal holiday. "How is it that I have a personal holiday?" Well, that's how I refer to the day of my birth. I love birthdays even though the number of them that I've celebrated are higher than most women would want to admit to I still love them. The only person I know who loves birthdays almost as much as I do is one of my brothers Pastor Wendal McIntosh. I still think I have him beat though.

My birthday is all about me. Does that sound selfish? I'll explain. I look at it as my special day. Sometimes I share it with family and friends and sometimes I just enjoy the day by myself. No one has to do anything spectacular or give me a present for me to be happy (not that I don't love them :)) I'm simply grateful that God allowed me to see the beginning of a new year for me.

I have a tradition on my birthday, I don't go to bed until after 12:00am no matter how sleepy I am. I always want to enjoy every moment of my day. Today however, I find myself wishing the day would go a little faster. The reason? Today is Election Day in the Bahamas and I want to see who won. But at the same time I don't want it to go so quickly because it'll be another year before my personal holiday comes around again. However, maybe my brother Wendal will allow me to share his own with him tomorrow lol, I doubt it.
