“I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.”—~William Penn (via justbesplendid) (via fairlightday)
“The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes. If you foolishly ignore beauty, you will soon find yourself without it. Your life will be impoverished. But if you invest in beauty, it will remain with you all the days of your life.”—Frank Lloyd Wright (via lovelygreenlight) (via readmysmile) (via jacyann)
I do know that waiting on God requires the willingness to bear uncertainty, to carry within oneself the unanswered question, lifting the heart to God about it whenever it intrudes upon one’s thoughts.
Truly my heart waits silently for God; my deliverance comes from Him, in truth He is my rock of deliverance, my tower of strength, so that I stand unshaken. Trust always in God, my people, pour out your hearts before Him;
God is our shelter.
A roof over our heads.
A warm coat.
Shelter from fear. Shelter from attack- from onslaughts of doubt that God would take care of everything if I would simply trust Him- what if I didn’t. Waiting silently is the hardest thing of all. But the things that we feel the most deeply about we ought to learn to be silent about, at least until we have talked them over thoroughly with God.”
“Windows and doors are flung wide as summer seeps into the house. We sit on the back stoop as the sun fades. Stars come out, our feet amongst the cool grass, the air like a warm blanket. Galaxies shift and grow. Quiet words hang in the air, unrushed.”—(via cowgirlblues) (via michelleums)
