Jesus is really amazing. Constantly being reminded of how much bigger He is than my sin, trials, situations, everything.

maybe it IS too late to be making a sandwich, but I got off tumblr for about an hour, and worked on my paper, so yeah i deserve it.

"That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong."

cuddling is probably one of the most passionate forms of love there is because you just feel so safe and close to the person and it feels like all your worries go away and it’s one of the greatest feelings in the world

Everyone should read and understand this.

You’ll find that it’s hard to continue hating someone if you started praying for them every day.

Try it, it’s true.

Anonymous asked: Is it wrong to check out a girl physical's attributes? Speaking for myself, I don't undress women with my eyes when I check them out but I do feel the urge to look. Do girls like being appreciated as long as we're not creeps about it?


Well there is a huge difference between being admired and being lusted after.  It would be ignorant and dumb to expect the world to pretend to be blind, because we are not, we have eyes for a reason.  And when God made man, lemme give you the tip mate, some of them came HOT off the block!!

I don’t think there is anything wrong with being able to look at a woman and think she is gorgeous, what you do with those thoughts is obviously where the issues step in.  If me looking gorgeous makes you think lustful thoughts and you are thinking of all kind of creepy stuff while looking at me, I would prefer you to rather then NOT look at me. 

But if me being gorgeous makes you look at me and think there is an intelligent, strong woman that knows how to pull of a sweet outfit and her makeup game is strong and she is looking FINE today, then you are more than welcome to look.

Its about whether your looks degrade and dehumanize a person or uplift them.  If your looks comes with catcalls and obscenities, then son your better move on, quickly. 

We have to take ownership of our thoughts and how it influences our decisions and the way we treat people. 

Rule of thumb for looking with appreciation and admiration if and when in doubt if your looks could be seen as creepy:

A honest overall glance is acceptable if you are going to look.  Don’t stare at the boobies and never go back for seconds.

love love

this gif of buff chris evans having to pretend like he can’t do a push-up is so important to me. 



What I need is some flowers in one hand, coffee in the other, and people who are willing to take stupid, pointless, breathtaking adventures with me.
