I was back in D.C. this past weekend! It was great to catch up with friends and see familiar places. It’s funny though: even though I only moved 2 months ago, New York is starting to feel like home! That being said, I would have gladly stayed in D.C. a little bit longer. They were having some amazing spring weather over there! I was super jealous.
Anyway, Zaynab took these photos of me on Saturday when we met up for lunch at La Tasca. I had gone to church at Restoration Praise Center that morning, which was my home church when I lived in the DMV. In full disclosure, I was raised in the Adventist church, and there are teachings that I both agree and disagree with. I’m at a point in my life where I’m assessing my beliefs and figuring out what God wants from me. I haven’t liked any of the Adventist churches I’ve attended in NYC, and I’m not tying myself to attending only Adventist churches either. I’m sincerely praying about it and asking the Lord to lead. I want to feel connected to my church and be really involved in ministry. I’m ready to grow spiritually and approach my faith like an adult, and I think a good church can really help me do that.
