My Name is Inthe…I want to be an Investor.

Happy New Year!!

I am so happy to be in this new year, happy and healthy surrounded by all my loved ones. For a little while, I have dedicated each year to something I wanted to improve in my life. Last year I decided to spent my year as a “architect” building my matrimonial home. Looking for "squeaky floors” and “leaky faucets” and working my hardest through grace to improve it. Praise God, it was a year of fulfillment, building and a reminder that although a good marriage requires hard work but it is possible for those who are willing to work it.



This year, I am seeking something different…Invest! 2014 finds me wanting something that will transcend my marriage and flow out my home into the real world. I want to invest and build deeper more intimate friendships with the people in my life. We live in such a fantasy world. There are people with 10000 friends and followers on different social media forums but do not put 1/10 of that investment into the real life friendships they do have.  I want to give more of myself and change flimsy friendships existing on “life support” to thriving fulfilling channels through which I can channel God’s love through.



This year, I am going to stop asking why women feel drawn to me, opening up about their deepest secrets and just take advantage of this blessing to sow comfort, peace, love and  encouragement into their lives. To be intimate, one has to be intentional. I am cutting out the shallow and time consuming non-important things and re-directing that time into investing and digging deeper.

Let’s do this…

Happy New Year to you too. I know some people have an "open face," but for you it might be your personality. Okay, let me stop speculating. :-)

Whatever it is, I hope you do what you've resolved to do and that we'll hear some of the stories that'll certainly follow.
