The Best Part
Pretty sure that reading these books as a child heavily influenced my Platonic Ideal of a perfect man. || #mcm #professorbhaer #littlewomen

Ness and I used to fight all the time. We were jealous of each other and insecure of others gifts and talents. There was a time where we screamed that the other was beautiful. Momma always told me that one day we would be best friends. I didn’t believe her. I thought there was no way we of all people could be best friends. Today I count her as my greatest friend. My kindred spirit. My precious sister. I miss her so much and I love her even more. She encourages me every day with her joy, compassion, and zeal for life. Momma was right. And I am so incredibly thankful that she was. || #sisters #sistas #dollface

"Get excited about the little things. About wearing a new outfit for the first time. About Sunday brunches with your best friends. About the new cute guy in your class. About finding an extra dollar in your pocket. About anything that even remotely makes you happy because as you grow up, passions fade and enthusiasm gets mistaken for foolishness. So don’t let the grey world stop you from shining."- note to self. (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
“They saw the works of the Lord, his wonderful deeds in the deep” (Psalm 107:24, NIV)
The scripture says is Psalm 107:23, “They that go down to the sea and do business in deep waters, they will see the wonders of God.” Friend, you and I were created to do business in deep waters. In other words, we’re not supposed to have little dreams or little plans. We are supposed to have big dreams. We are supposed to go out into the deep things God has for us.
But understand, when you’re out there in the deep waters, you can’t touch the ground. You can’t see the shoreline, and at times, it can get a little rocky. You may not always see how things are going to work out. But, the scripture tells us that deep calls to deep. In other words, God is the one who has called you to the deep waters. He is with you, and He knows there are deep things on the inside of you. Remember, in deep waters, you are not alone. God is with you, and He’s causing those deep things inside of you to come forth.
If you feel like you are out in the deep today, if you feel like you are overwhelmed, remember, you are in the right place and God is with you. You will see His wonderful deeds in the deep, and you will fulfill the plan He has in store for you.
"- T.B. LaBerge // It’s 2:12am and I’m No Poet (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
I’m glad Your last boyfriend had such a short vocabulary, because I’ve been studying how to describe beauty for my whole life, been training myself to serve and love. I’ve been constructing myself to show You the true value that You hold, that I think stars are made from Your smile, that the sun rises just so we can be together.
I’m glad Your boyfriend didn’t have the courage that I do, that I’d fight the years to be with You, knowing that it will end with me growing old by Your side.
I’m glad Your boyfriend didn’t see You through the same lens I do, for you are 20/20 and it’s getting stronger everyday.
But I’m sad, because You had to have a boyfriend who didn’t love You like You should be loved. Because to me, You’re not just a pretty little flower, You’re the whole world in spring, and I’m in love with this season."
