A Standard of Grace

There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart

When I turn around, he cups my face in his hands and he kisses me so deeply that I don’t know who is breathing for [whom], but his mouth and tongue taste like warm honey. I don’t know how long it lasts, but when I let go of him, I miss it already.

She was laughing even as we kissed and kissed again.There is no better taste than this: someone else’s laughter in your mouth.

Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music — the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.

"Say to my soul, ‘Rise up my love, my fair one, and come away.’ Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wandered for so long."

oh child of suffering, be patient. God has not passed you over in His providence. He who is the feeder of sparrows will also furnish you with what you need. take up the arms of faith against a sea of trouble. there is one who cares for you. His eye is fixed on you, His heart beats with pity for your woe, and His omnipotent hand will bring you the needed help. the darkest cloud will scatter itself in showers of mercy. the blackest gloom will give place to the morning. He, if you are one of His family, will bind up your wounds and heal your broken heart.

There’s a beauty in being rejected, misunderstood, unseen, and unsupported by people. It teaches you to relay on God for everything…

I spent years measuring myself to on-fire believers, and I’m simply just not one of them. My faith burns slower, more methodical, seated in the back, plagued with questions, desperate in prayer, trusting those rare moments when Christ is fully visible.

Sometimes I wish I was 29 with my life figured out & sometimes I wish I was 5 with my whole life ahead of me and not a care in the world
