"Maybe it’s just in America, but it seems that if you’re passionate about something, it freaks people out. You’re considered bizarre or eccentric. To me, it just means you know who you are."
It is hard to speak
when love floods
it is easy others say,
when love floods the heart
but I say, it is better not
to speak at all,
for my words always fall
never reaching in
far enough to touch
my heart and never reaching
out far enough
to touch his,
I know I’ve only been in college for three weeks or so but it’s going so fast and I have so much more processing I want to do and so little time to do it. If we could just slow it down a little bit that would be nice.
The sweetest engagement. These two are two of the most sincere, compassionate, tender, genuine & peaceful people I know. | photos by shannon leith
you're going to Biola?
Yes, I currently attend Biola University and I LOVE IT HERE
my floor went to get donuts. we love each other. and we love donuts. // leaving a legacy of love(ing donuts)
what do you look like when the Light shapes your shadow? // finding new places at Biola with lovely new people.
Yesterday when I was doing my reading for my foundations of Christian thought class I learned that before the creation of the world and because of the Trinity there existed love and communication. Love and communication have always been. Why do we have so much trouble with those two things? Why do we come up with excuses to not love others? Why do we come up with excuses to not talk to each other? It’s so easy, really. But we hide. That we have become good at, hiding. And in hiding we bring ourselves into a lose-lose situation. Not only are we unable to give when hiding, but we too miss out. We miss out on the core parts of who God is. We miss out on what it means to be known and what it means to know someone else. And I mean really know them. God has a lot to offer us once we refuse to hide. He has a whole world of goodness to show us and a whole garden of challenges with which He’ll grow us. He’s ready for us.
I wish every person everywhere could have been in class with me today // this is us, completely, deeply broken. the Lord holds us. as we enter into relationships with other people we come alongside their rough edges. // my prayer is that we’d try to handle everyone’s rough edges with softer hands.
such a radiant daughter of the Lord. love and miss this beauty pie.
