Hello, beautiful people, it's Peytona! Happy Saturday! How are you doing? I'm doing really well. God has been so good to me. I feel very blessed. It's raining here in Maryland. What's the weather like where you live? Post in the comments!
I didn't sleep too well last night. I woke up at 5 in the morning, fretting about my campaign on Kickstarter. I really want to be fully funded. I'm praying that I'll exceed $6,000 and reach my stretch goal of $15,097. That would be so sweet! I'd have enough money to make two albums instead of one. That would be cool.
Shameless plug: Please check out my campaign if you haven't already and pledge. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/peytona432/peyton-leonards-first-album?ref=user_menu
Okay, I'm done. For today. I dunno about next Tuesday. Lol.
Did you go shopping for Black Friday? I didn't. I'm broke. If you did go, how was it? Did you find what you were looking for? Post in the comments!
My Saturday's going really well. I had breakfast with one of my spiritual aunties and we practiced "Pie Jesu." We're doing the duet tomorrow for church. I'm also singing "Silent Night." I'm excited. I love singing classically when I have the opportunity. I've always wanted to sing "Pie Jesu" with my auntie. She trained me growing up in classical singing. She's an amazing opera singer. I'm so honored to have her in my life. Do you have someone like this in your life that you look up to? Post in the comments!
It's so cold here. I'm sitting in my purple robe as I type. It's keeping me warm. Dad was down in Florida for Thanksgiving visiting his side of the family. Lucky duck. He said it was in the 80's down there. I'm so jealous. I need that kind of weather in my life. What kind of weather do you like? Hot or cold? Since having Lyme disease and all that implies, I'm more inclined to warmer weather, but I do like snuggling up in blankets when it's cold. I dunno. I guess I could go both ways, but I prefer warm weather. It's easier on my joints.
Shifting gears a bit, I just finished up this plan on the YouVersion bible app about growing in your intimacy with God. It was super encouraging. I'm also reading Hebrews right now. It's been good thus far. I feel like God's really been blessing my intimacy with Him. That's something I want to grow in as the new year comes in. I've been working on praying more and fasting once a month. I've been asking God to bless the work of my hands and help me find favors in His eyes and the eyes of man. What have you been reading in your times with God? What have you been praying about? Post in the comments if you need prayer. I'd be happy to pray for you. I care about you. <3
I might stop here and work on visualizing my successes. That's something I've been trying to get more consistent with. Pray for me. Pray for my campaign as well. Thanks so much for your support and for reading my blog posts every week. It means a lot to me. Enjoy your Saturday and I'll see you for another excerpt on Tuesday!
Bye! <3 xoxo
