1. The beauty behind the roses.
    The flowers and I both agree we wouldn’t be the beautiful things we have grown to become had it not been for this loving man and his amazing wife, my grandparents.


  2. "For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.

    So collapse.
    This is not your destruction.

    This is your birth."

  3. I have hurt people in the past, I have been crushed before and then turned around and done it to someone else.

    I’m so worried that it will happen again, how many times must we see such ugliness before we begin to experience beauty in our lives.  He is sweet and kind and has been a friend for a while now.  I have no idea what will come from it, but for some reason I’m hesitant.  The words of former relationships echoing in my head, and have I been healed enough to try again?

    And I left you there wondering if you had been loved at all.

  9. Do you love San Fransico?

    Well there is this place called Restoration Initiatives in the Tenderloin district run by YWAM SF, dedicated to helping the ever growing homeless population of the city.  They have a lot of useful things for the homeless, such as showers, haircuts, public restrooms, and other things designed to engage the community and connect with them. 

    They are a great ministry with God’s heart behind all of it, and are in need of support. They have a fundraiser going on at the moment called Restore Dignity. If you want to know more I suggest you click this link <here> and even if you are not in a good place to give financially, you can still bless the organization through prayer and sharing about this with others. 

    Anyways, this organization is close to my heart and that’s all I have to say.

    Welp, big gulps huh? See ya later!
