unspeakable J O Y

I returned from the grocery store about an hour ago and as I was about to dive into the rest of my night: cleaning, laundry, planning the week, give with JOY, etc. But I realized that I felt a little heavy. Not heavy like I ate five cookies last night because I did, but that's besides the point; I felt heavy in the sense that I really didn't feel like myself.

It was an amazing weekend surrounded by amazing friends and time with the husband, but I realized that I didn't make quiet time a priority. I didn't start my weekend mornings with quiet prayer and time in the Word -- Y I K E S!

So, I write this post tonight as a journal entry in a promise to myself to keep my blog about my R E A L life. To share with you my joys, sorrows, the good and the bad! Tonight, I wanted to express my weakness and selfishness in "my time" vs. intentional time with my God who makes me strong - right now I feel weak! But the more time I sit outside on my balcony with the Word and my prayers, the more I begin to feel that unspeakable J O Y  that He promises! Spending time in His Word is necessary daily.

Goodnight and here's to a week starting on the right foot!

with joy,
Aneta Nina


  1. I love this! Blogging about real life is so hard sometimes, but I find that it's also when I connect with others and find myself falling in love more with God. Can't wait to see what you blog about next!

    p.s. LOVE that photo + text. Such a good reminder. :)

    1. Thanks for the encouragement Kiki! :)
