Theodore Roosevelt (via observando)
… Who is made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions; who acknowledges the strength of others.
Mother Teresa (via observando)
How do I love thee? Truly, love can send hearts racing, or break a spirit for the eventual betterment. Love is not always grand, but it should always seek to place others’ needs above one’s own.
"Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others." (Philippians 2:3, 4 ESV)
I hope to never make someone weep over me, never to be the cause of pain, heartbreak, loss, betrayal. I am so broken! So at odds with my being, with the pain I have inflicted. It hurts more knowing others have suffered, than if I were to be on the receiving end.
God, you are good! You are sovereign. I am small, sinful, often confused and emotional. Help me make the right decisions; help me love those around me, to nurture and develop instead of breaking and tearing down. God, help! I am here. I will listen.
Eyelids flickering, shapes shifting. Blinking pictures.
It was all a dream… Wasn’t it? That can’t have happened to… Me?
I’m tired. So much I have to hold in, that I can’t mustn’t shouldn’t talk about. People would kill to be where I am, but little do they know how it can rip you apart inside.
I’m waking up now. It has to be a dream. Or I’ll make it one.
I am not an alcoholic. I just get *hic* happy when I am gifted very delicious wine when all I was after was a picture for my records. Love this family!!! Amazing food and the best fudge cake last night.
