The months have passed, Both short and slow, Since we last saw your face. We’ve heard it said, So many times, “He’s in a better place.” It’s true, I know, And joy is there, To know you’re finally home. But deep inside, We still will cry, Because we miss you so. We’ve learned so much, We’ve felt so much, We never wanted to. But we hold fast, To sovereign plans, That we believe...
"am I really beautiful?"
I’ve noticed post after post on tumblrs far and near that proclaim the message of, “you’re beautiful just because you are you.” We all know the philosophy and the truth that each person was made perfectly, and that it doesn’t matter what other people think. “Be yourself because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”...
How to be silent together, a sweetness even greater than talking.– Les Miserables, pg. 832
Loving almost takes the place of thinking. Love is an ardent forgetting of the rest. So try asking passion to be logical. There is no more of an absolute logical sequence in the human heart that there is a perfect geometric figure in celestial mechanics. ~Les Miserables, pg. 830
“This is how he posed the problem of his life: to work as little as possible at material work in order to work as much as possible at intangible work; in other words, to give a few hours to real life and to pour the rest into infinity.” ~Les Miserables, pg. 566

I don’t think it would really be possible to write adequately about my sister here. Today marks the anniversary of when she entered all of our lives (though I can’t remember it at all!). Sure, sometimes she can be a bit of a grump. ;) But the vast majority of the time she is smiling, singing, humming, laughing, and shining a light in our home. I often step back and think about all...
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.– Shakespeare
The brevity of a delicate snowflake serves as a reminder of the eternality of our beautiful God.
God will look to every soul like its first love because He is its first love.– C.S. Lewis
give me jesus
give me Jesus, give me Jesus, You can have all this world, just give me Jesus… But do I live that way? Do I live like I would rather have Jesus than the everyday things around me? Or does my investment of time show the opposite? in the morning, when I rise, in the morning, when I rise, in the morning, when I rise, give me Jesus… But what if God was trying to tell me, “I...

Thou art worthy of an adoration greater than my dull heart can yield.– Valley of Vision, Journeying On
Is there some problem in your life to solve, Some passage seeming full of mystery? God knows, who brings the hidden things to light. He keeps the key. Is there some door closed by the Father’s hand, Which widely opened you had hoped to see? Trust God and wait - for when He shuts the door, He keeps the key. Is there some earnest prayer unanswered yet, Or answered not as you had thought...
