There are days when I can’t wait to go to bed because I know His mercies are new every morning, and I feel like I’ve almost run out.M.C. Ecclesiastes 12: Reconciliation (via mountainmusing)
God is in love with you; He is in love with your individuality, it’s His perfect masterpiece.(via maddyeline)
[W]e live in interwoven networks of terminally casual relationships. We live with the delusion that we know one another, but we really don’t. We call our easygoing, self-protective, and often theologically platitudinous conversations ‘fellowship,’ but they seldom ever reach the threshold of true fellowship. We know cold demographic details about one another (married or single, type of job, number of kids, general location of housing, etc.), but we know little about the struggle of faith that is waged every day behind well-maintained personal boundaries.Vaughan Roberts, True Friendship (via earthstranger)
This Catechism was not written to please you. It will not make life easy for you, because it demands of you a new life.Pope Benedict XVI, Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church (via wearefearfullyandwonderfullymade)
Love too fast can prove falser than love too slow.Shakespeare describing the superiority of the slow burn since 1597 (via ohmypreciousgirl)
It’s a very powerful thing when someone sees you as the person you wish you were.Veronica Mars (via wordsthat-speak)
