Surviving Your Serengeti, Stephen Swanepoel

 This is a self-help book aimed at businesses and individuals.  The author tells a story of a safari that a couple wins and how meeting up with an old friend with lots of words of wisdom changes their lives. 

I felt the story was forced and not believable.  I could visualize the savanna and the animals so the writing wasn’t bad, but I did not really get what they were going for.  As a self-help book I think this one fell flat, maybe a bit more explanation on each animal and maybe a blending of each would have helped.   

Although this is a short book it took me some time to be able to finish it, I found it hard to stay into the story. This book was almost written as you would write a children's book. I do however think the basic points were good for your business but the delivery should have been better. The book is short and that might help more people pick it up to read, but I think the author needed more time and space to get his point across.  But then again maybe I'm the only one that feels this way.

Happy Birthday to ME!!!

As I reflect on my 32 birthday there are several things that I can say I have learned...
1. If you think you have your life planned out...think again it is God's plan not yours!
2. Don't sweat the small stuff..there is plenty of big stuff around the corner so save your energy.
3. Choose who you surround yourself with wisely...people will either lift you up or push you down, some are in our lives for a season, a reason, or a lifetime.
4. PRAY Always! When things are good, when things are bad and when things are in-between!
5. Forgive and move on...hate will only poison your spirit and effects you more than it does someone else so don't give them that control. Live and learn then MOVE on!!!
AND something that I was reminded of today
6. Even when you least expect it God reminds you how LOVED you are!

After all the heart ache and commotion that has gone on this last week I was not expecting to have a good birthday. Once again my expectations ran low. Today turned out to be AMAZING...I received many many  Birthday wishes on phone and in person. I am very cup runneth over with love! I enjoyed a very good lunch thanks to one of my Best friends Jenn. 

The following was my Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today:
If you will allow it, I will remove the pressure that creates stress. I would have you move with Me in the same way that the eagle effortlessly soars on the thermals, doing what it was created to do. I would have you to yield to the moving of My Spirit with the joy and ease of doing what you have been created for. It is only when you give in to anxiety and operate under the burden of worry that you lose your joy and peace. I will relieve you if you will completely put your trust in Me, says the Lord. Let Me lift you up.
Psalms 86:4 Rejoice the soul of Your servant, for to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

I also interviewed for a job I was did not previously know about and it went AWESOME!!! I enjoyed a free dinner at Wally's with my hubby. Received a cheerful chorus of Happy Birthday at the pool and then spent the rest of the night with the kiddos.
So I can honestly say this was a Great day!  
Thank You Lord for reminding me that I am special...that I am loved...that I am thought of and that I am valued!!!
