it was so rad to be able to take a flight and see seattle as a whole.

something about seeing everything, so big and beautiful, makes me thankful to serve a God so much bigger than it all.

I’m quite find of this flower, though i’m not entirely sure why.
i feel as if though it holds the answers within itself, the secret to trusting God’s provision and the beauty that comes with.

today, I had a random urge to eat crepes. so I decided to make myself crepes.
I am now eating said crepes, and they taste quite good indeed.

my dear future children, (for my future self so i don’t forget)

I will teach you about God from day one, of His love, forgiveness, mercy and grace, of His truth, justice and holiness; and of the Gospel

I will always listen to you

I will be willing to listen to you and consider what you are saying, that you might be right and I might be wrong

I will admit when Iโ€™m wrong

I will help you memorize verses from a young age

I will read the bible with you

I want to be your closest confidant

I will be first and foremost your mother and your good friend a close second

I will tell you about me and my life growing up

I will give you my stuff from my childhood to be yoursย 

I will be really weird, Iโ€™m sorry (not sorry)

I will be honest

I will teach you to respect me and your father

I will teach you to obey

I will give you adorable names

I will take lots of pictures and keep a record of important events and cute little things

I will read you fairy tales and cultivate your imagination

I will not let technology get in the way of our now

I will teach you to cook, sew, and make a bed

I will teach you manners

I will teach you to respect your elders and authorities

I will sing and dance with you

I will care about what you care about

I will teach you what good music is

I will take you to the concerts of your favorite bands

I will make you take piano lessons, but make sure you have a nice teacher

I will teach you to work hard

I will do arts and crafts with you

I will let you have double sleepovers

I will care more about your inside beauty than your outside pretty, โ€œprettyโ€ is entirely unimportant and altogether irrelevant

I will, however, dress you with great style

I will encourage you to try new things, but not force you to continue too long with them if you donโ€™t like them

I will never lecture you right when you get up or get home from something

I will teach you the importance of family

I will celebrate with you

I will cry with you

I will protect you

I will let you make your own mistakes and be there to help you learn from them

I will comfort you

I will let you be alive

I will not label you or put you in a box

I will be there

"all in all it was a never-to-be-forgotten summer—one of those summers which seldom come into any life, but leave a to heritage of beautiful memories in their going— one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful people, and delightful doing, come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world"

I guess they’re just trying to be nice and empathetic but it annoys the heck out of me when some people say they “know how I feel”
like, no. unless you are going through the exact situation in this context, you really have no idea.
