Nine Facts

by fitforthesoul in ,


Happy First Day of Autumn everyone!  Yayyyy it has finally arrived, though it still seems like summer here in L.A.  I have to say that as silly as it may sound, I feel betrayed by the weather whenever I hear from you that it’s beginning to feel like Fall where you live. Hehe. So there are a few factoids that are worth mentioning... Smile  Granted, they are pretty random but sometimes random is good right?  And besides, I really need to adopt the idea of writing shorter posts unlike the last one, and start being more of a list kind of person.  I’ve never been one to make lists, so here goes nothing something!

Fact #1

Oatmeal with spices of all sorts like cinnamon and allspice and apple pieces result in a really delicious breakfast. Try adding egg whites to the mixture and you end up with the fluffiest and creamiest bowl of oats ever. Oh, and I took the liberty to top it with crumbles of the hazelnut cappuccino bread for an extra punch of flavor.

Fact #2

A warmed up corn tortilla with melting gouda cheese and hummus is perfection.  Seriously.  Give it a try.

Fact #3

I must be kind of crazy to not have tried Panda Puffs until now!  It’s so crispy, perfectly sweet, cute (yes, cereal pellets can be cute) and the ingredient list is pretty decent.

Fact #4

Sometimes a good house-cleaning session gives me a great workout, especially if vacuuming and the Shark are involved.  The Shark, by the way, is probably one of the best things we could have asked for in our wedding registry. Smile

Fact #5

God is so good!  Last night I went to church with my parents and there was a missions conference going on.  “Coincidentally”, because I don’t really believe in coincidences, we sat right next to an Argentinean missionary couple.  It was awesome as we chatted in Spanish about all the wonderful things God is doing.  And then, we heard a testimony of a missionary who serves in North Korea.  He has a great vision to see North Korea’s barriers crumbling to the ground and to see people know the love of Christ.

Fact #6

YOU ARE SO LOVED…God is so in love with you even when you don’t feel like He even knows your name.  In our darkest of times, He is closer than we could ever imagine.  “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” –Psalm 34:18

Fact #7

Take note of these wise words!  I saw this earlier on Brittany’s post:

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” –Winston Churchill

Fact #8

Lately my interest in photography and the sweet joy that it brings into my daily life has been gradually increasing.  All the way from the props, the lighting, and the creativity that goes into it is really exciting!

Fact #9

I finally went in for a hair trim and thinning with a set of highlights.
