It is exactly six days to my birthday and I got an early birthday present; I stumbled upon a flash drive I lost some weeks ago. I had so many pictures saved in them and it hurt a bit when I could not find it earlier. My only consolation was that the pictures were not of great quality anyway so it was no big deal. However, The real fact is that all pictures are loaded with memories which cannot be replaced or recaptured and I prayed and hoped that I would find the flash drive someday. I kept looking in corners and crevices whenever I cleaned around the house and I never really stopped looking. Well, I did find it a few days ago; it dropped right out of a book when I was looking through the drawers in my bedside night table.
These particular pictures were taken during my first trimester and I just started showing. It was a rainy and cloudy day and I was on my way to the hair salon to get my hair washed. I was putting on a pink top underneath a black blazer over a pair of pants made from African fabric. I remember feeling very girly because it was a huge dose of pink. Come to think of it, pink is a color that is trending this fall.
Now that I found my pictures, I'm going to put them in blog posts for each day of my birthday "count down." So, this is day six! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend.

The lesson to be learned is to keep on seeking and never to give up when following your dreams and most importantly, to always seek God each day in all our pursuits. Do you know that there are so many verses in the bible that talk about seeking? One of my favorite verses is;
7"Ask,"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8"For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
