About Me

18th October 2017 I am going to have a break from swapping for a little bit. I have multiple sclerosis and I am not very well at all at the moment. I have been having to rely on my boyfriend to take my stuff to the post as I can't go there myself. I'll be back as soon as I feel a bit better!


Hi. My name's Amanda and I live on the Isle of Wight, UK I'm 28 years old and live with my partner Matty and our two rats Da Vinci and Odin. I'm a vegan and love all animals especially rats! My favourite wild animal are macaques. I love bright colours and although it's a cliche, I love pink, especially fuschia pink.

Favorite Crafts

I absolutely love crafts! At the moment I'm doing quite a bit of card making to send to my penpals. I love knitting, my favourite thing to knit is socks. I've knitted a lot of garments in the past but I'm enjoying smaller projects and I find there is something quite relaxing about knitting round in circles! I'm also weaving on my zoom loom which is super fun! I also do a lot of colouring which I find is very relaxing.

Favorite Television

I don't watch that much regular TV but I'm totally addicted to documentaries. I love history, science, nature and travel documentaries. I guess I just really like learning new things! I do watch Walking Dead (I'm catching up with season 7 now!) and Game of Thrones and Big Bang Theory which are brilliant

Favorite Music

My favourite genre is Indie Folk with bands such Monsters and Men, Mumford and Sons, Bear's Den. I also like Coheed and Cambri, Gaslight Anthem, Biffy Clyro I quite like acoustic acts too. It just depends how I'm feeling!

Postcards

I love scenes of where you live, famous people, history, art, religious buildings, religious

Please no masks, clowns or babies

Goodies

I'm vegan so please nothing containing milk or eggs or animal products like gelatine.

I love dark chocolate, marzipan, nakd bars I don't like chewy sweets like haribo, licorice

I love crafts so any crafty goodies are welcome including stickers, pens, post it notes, pretty paper, embelliments, ephemera, washi tape, acrylic or rubber stamp

Other things I like: bookmarks, jewellery, hair clips, bracelets,

CSG ~ Fruit of the Spirit, #7 Gentleness

Gentleness

as defined in the Bible: An expression of compassion, seen in God’s dealings with the frail and weak, and expected of believers in their dealings with others.

Dictionary definition:

  1. the quality of being kind, tender, or mild-mannered.

  2. softness of action or effect; lightness.

What does gentleness mean to me?

As it says above, to be a gentle person you must also be a strong person. You must be kind and careful to others especially people who might be frightened for whatever reason. They need to gain your trust and that in itself means that you must have the strength to convince them to trust you. When you show Jesus's love, gentleness and kindness anything's possible.

The gentleness of a Christian:

  1. It is learned.
  2. It is godly.
  3. God expects it.
  4. It isn't easy.
  5. Sometimes it comes with great difficulty and through special circumstances.

Kinds of gentleness:

  1. A gentle spirit acknowledges the truth of what is being felt and how to respond to it.

  2. Gentle people make and embrace the time and space between something happening and when to respond to it.

  3. A gentle spirit is acknowledging and allowingyourself to care about things.

  4. A gentle spirit will find reasons that ignite a positive motivation.

  5. Gentle spirits embrace their ability to choose instead of reacting.

  6. Cultivating empathy and an understanding that the world doesn't revolve around their perception of reality is a habit of the gentle spirit.

  7. Gentle spirited people observe the world. They observe themselves, other people and situations they experience. The more control you have, the more space you have to choose to be gentle.

Meaning of scripture to me:

My gentleness is always evident to all. I live my life always being compassionate to others. I show kindness whenever possible even in the worst of situations. Even when someone does something to make me angry I try my best to respond in the kindest possible way.

I hope you were encouraged by my comments. I pray that your life is also filled with gentleness. God Bless You!

Blessings,

Yvonne
