The Jessica Diaries: What I’ve Learned About Love Over The Years

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV

The way I view and experience love has changed so much over the years. It almost feels like the older I get, the more close I get to the actual meaning of love.

When it comes to romantic relationships, I’ve gotten it wrong so many times because I was focused more on the individual than the love that should have been being exchanged between us. In other relationships, such as those with my family, I didn’t realize the depths and showings of love that have been there all the time.

Some of these lessons were learned from my constantly evolving relationship with God and others were learned once I started to change myself. I’m sharing those lessons today on the blog.

Check them out below!

7 Things To Complain About Instead Of Beyonce’s Pregnancy Announcement

You know you’re everything you think you are as and when you can break the Internet at any time, without any warning.

Beyonce has already done it once and she just did it again with the announcement that she and her husband, Jay-Z, are expecting two new additions to their family.

I’m particularly excited because there were so many babies conceived in 2016 and one-by-one everyone is making their announcement. It’s such a blessing to add to your family, to create life and I cannot wait for my little one to be born in just eight short weeks! It makes me so happy to see other women who are also carrying life because I know, to a certain extent, how they feel and it makes me even happier in return.

What a time to be alive! Continue Reading
