“Instead of butterflies in my stomach, I have moths.” - me two months ago. Me now: “I feel as light as a feather and as free as a bird!” This is what good boyfriends can do for a girl. Praise the Lord!
I want love to be my legacy.
You. I need you.
I want to unleash the power of prayer and I aim to ask for your help. My brother, Walker, has to come up with $4,500 (a fine for traffic violations that have accumulated over several years) by his court date next month. He lives in Chicago, on his own, and he works as a waiter. He lives hand to mouth for the most part because it’s hard to make it as a server. If he doesn’t have the...
"It is finished."
I watched The Passion of the Christ tonight and I was fully hit with the first thing every Christian is taught: Jesus died for me. Not only that, He suffered unbearable amounts of pain and ridicule for me. I let the horrific visuals of the scenes play out before me, giving me chills and watery eyes. I watched intently as my Savior showed greater strength than any man ever could and He bore my sins...

I think we strive for perfection because we were made in God’s image and He is perfect. But we forget we cannot achieve perfection because we have been corrupted by sin.
Do desires come from your mind or your heart?

Desperately, helplessly, longingly, I cried; Quietly, patiently, lovingly, God replied. I pled and I wept for a clue to my fate … And the Master so gently said, “Wait.” “Wait? you say wait?” my indignant reply. “Lord, I need answers, I need to know why! Is your hand shortened? Or have you not heard? By faith I have asked, and I’m claiming your Word. “My future and all to which I relate ...

You are who you are for a reason. You’re part of an intricate plan. You’re a precious and perfect unique design, Called God’s special woman or man. You look like you look for a reason. Our God made no mistake. He knit you together within the womb. You’re just what He wanted to make. The parents you had were the ones He chose, And no matter how you may feel, They were...

I’ve started a 40 day challenge for finding God’s purpose for my life. I’m beyond extremely excited for it! But what if I don’t like God’s purpose for me? I want to travel and be a mother and be loved. But what if that isn’t meant to be in God’s cosmic plan? But then I realize, I will still love others and be loved, even if I don’t have children. And...
Just finished reading Tuesdays With Morrie for the second time in my life and I’m having a major thought storm. If you haven’t read this book, read it. It’s so enlightening.
We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how...– Thich Nhat Hanh (via sorakeem)
Finally watched The Breakfast Club and the world makes so much more sense now! Where has this movie been all my life?
San Cisco is my new favorite band.
Go check them out! :D Especially their songs: Awkward, Wild Things, Metaphors, Rocket Ship, Stella, Beach, Golden Revolver and No Friends!
no school + homework done + cancelled debate tournament = finally watching the breakfast club + mending the sleeves on my dress + making my old worn out toms totally rad So basically today is a great day. :D

I think I’ve successfully pulled my first all nighter. It’s basically 6 AM and I’m finally done with my research paper and I’m ready to go take a nap before school. This was a terrible experience I am not eager to repeat anytime soon.
Procrastinating like a pro.
I’m writing a research paper that’s due at 8:30 AM. I have an alarm set on my phone to go off every 30 minutes to make sure I’m awake until this thing is finished, I’m on my third paragraph of a minimum of eight paragraphs and I still have three not-so-short short stories to read and analyze. My topic is Nathaniel Hawthorne and his use of dark themes to convey man’s...
A little something I wrote a while back..
If I was an architect, I’d make time for you If I was a magician, I’d make your problems disappear. If I was a painter, I’d paint a picture of hope for you. If I was your Savior, I’d save you from yourself. But sadly I am none of these… I’m a lover, not a fighter, but I’ll fight for love. But in the end, darling, I’ve given up on you and found...
Whoever said chivalry was dead, lied.
Maybe I don’t see chivalrous acts from every guy, every single day, but I do see it enough to know it still exists. And that makes my heart glad.
A few of my questions for Heaven
I don’t understand the universe. I don’t understand how God just was before time; before the world, before heaven and hell. I don’t understand how God can be everywhere at once. I don’t understand how God can know my thoughts before I do and why He doesn’t change them. I don’t understand how God knows what is going to happen, but at the same time he knows...
I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does...– Maya Angelou (via wendesgray)

Age is such a funny thing.
There’s so much difference between 8 and 18. One is a child, the other an adult; living in separate worlds. But there’s not much difference between 80 and 90; they’re both just old, living in the same arthritis centered world. The concept of age fascinates me.
sinandserotonin: the world is heavy but your bones (just a cubic inch) can hold 19,000 lbs ounce for ounce they are stronger than steel atom for atom you are more precious than diamond and stars have died so that you may live you need to remember these things when you say that you are weak and worthless
cityofbadass: Do you ever wonder about how an author would describe you in a novel? Not only your appearance but the way you talk and laugh and hold yourself and all the expressions on your face?
The worst thing ever is when you have an awesome idea for a new blog name and someone already has it. What makes it even worse is when that blog only has two posts from last March. -_______-
