International Women’s Day

 

Recently, last year to be exact, I heard about this holiday, which is surprising because it began in 1909. Incredibly, it is celebrated all over the world!

This past Saturday, I was blessed to see a vision that I’ve had for years come to fruition. The vision was to see  women of diverse nationalities at a tea party, enjoying one another’s company. I am so thankful to be a part of a multicultural church, who believed in that vision too.

Our speaker on Saturday, Karen Harmon, www.karenharmon360.com, shared with us some poignant aspect of being a woman, especially a Christian woman. One of the pieces I’d like to highlight is a prayer that women will begin to see each other as sisters and not as threats, that we won’t be so quick to judge another woman who is not like us, and that we will celebrate one another in all of differences and uniqueness.

I’m thankful for all the diverse women God has allowed me to meet at my church, in the community, and on the blogosphere.

Happy International Women’s day to all the beautiful women, who are unafraid to chase their dreams, no matter how big they are, and in spite of the many times she was told, it can’t be done!

-Your moment is now,

Neglect Not Today

I wrote this post for "The Journey Unveiled" blog in 2012. It is mind-blowing how life has changed since then! Everything I was waiting for when I wrote this has come to fruition. Yet, the message still resonates with me even today.

Neglect Not Today

by Ebby Lane

My stomach curled in knots when Destiny asked me to blog about something I’m learning in my journey. My mind went bananas because there is just so much. Should I write about struggles I’ve endured lately? I have received wisdom about keeping certain things sacred? Or maybe I should write about how God is pushing me to take more chances and not be driven by possible failure (failure is a state my mind). Ugg, the endless possibilities. However, all of these lessons are gradually changing my attitude toward life.

The most weighted lesson is God teaching me to NOT NEGLECT TODAY

I’ll be 27 this year; I can choose to dwell on the empty ring finger that WAS NOT apart of my five-year plan, the empty nest, my wall devoid of the degree I was supposed to obtain three years ago OR I can choose today.

Why waste today depressed over something that hasn’t happened, YET?

Also, I’m a master of the five-year plan every year lol. I’m obsessed with knowing what will happen next and normally, I’m without fail. However, lately, my intuition is shielded.  The curveballs are abundant to the point I’ve seized attempting to decipher them, which was God’s plan all along. He is teaching me to trust Him with the unknown, “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen but what is unseen” (2 Corinthians 4:18). It’s a challenge.

Nonetheless, everyone has something to be thankful for RIGHT NOW.

When I forget, I remind myself to reflect on the prayers God answered. In addition, remember six months ago, I was not where I am today. In fact, I was praying to be here.

Living for today is easier said than done, but it’s not about perfection.

Sigh.

May we strive to unveil the beauty in between the reflections of yesterday and the dream come trues of tomorrow.
