It is a truth universally acknowledged…that I was born into the wrong century.
"Boys are gross."
-There were two adorable boys in Sunday School today; they come from great families and, really, are such little gentlemen-
Me: (to my little cousin Sammie) Hey, Sam, Luke's pretty cute. He's your age, right?
Sam: **rolls eyes** Gross, Kelsey.
Me: Really? Huh. Oh wait, what about Dakota? He's in 6th grade, so he'd work for you, right?
Sam: **exasperated** Kelsey, no. No, no, no. Not ever.
Me: Oh, come on, Sam. Just give it 4 years. I won't be wrong about this. (turning to Gabbie, her sister) Gab, you can have Luke, and Sam can have Dakota. It'll be perfect.
Gab: (looks me straight in the eyes, completely serious) I'm becoming a nun.
-It was all I could do not to burst out laughing at that. ... But I'm not wrong about this. They'll see, they'll see.-

Lumic: I will bring peace to the world. Everlasting peace - and unity - and uniformity. The Doctor: And imagination? What about that? The one thing that lead you here. Imagination - you’re killing it, dead! Lumic: What is your name? The Doctor: I’m the Doctor. Lumic: A redundant title. Doctors need not exist. Cybermen never sicken. The Doctor: (stepping forwards in his enthusiasm)...

The life of a nursing major.....
My friend posted this as her status on facebook, and I just had to share it, because it’s so, so true. S/S [signs and symptoms] that this nursing student is physically dependent on sleep: 1) My first thought when I wake up is when can I go back to sleep 2) I day dream about my next nap 3) In fact, I feel a release of dopamine in my brain when I think about sleep 4) My...

The Unheeded Secret
The great enemy to the Lord Jesus Christ in the present day is the conception of practical work that has not come from the New Testament, but from the Systems of the world in which endless energy and activities are insisted upon, but no private life with God. The emphasis is put on the wrong thing. Jesus said, “The kingdom of God cometh not with observation, for lo the kingdom of God...
The Local Church
The local church is the hope of the world? No. As a matter of fact God no longer dwells here I don’t believe Joy is a possibility Our lives are better lived in community and We are called to love each other radically The truth is The church is on the brink of extinction I refuse to believe that We are part of a story larger than our own and We have been changed to bring change ...
I don’t draw anymore. I don’t even sketch. I used to a lot. There’d be smudges of pencil on my knuckles and sides of my hands, under my fingernails. My sketchbook would be filled with artistic musings….. How could I neglected for so long something that used to bring me such joy? Yet, the sad thing is, I’m not even sure when I’ll next have the chance to sit...
On "Finding Beauty"
I’ve said it a lot lately. But I suppose it doesn’t hurt to say it again. This life we live is beautiful. It’s actually quite gorgeous, really. Especially at this time of year, when the trees begin to ignite with vibrant colors, and the crisp air brings roses to people’s cheeks and twinkles to their eyes. Autumn is the hybrid between the warmth and carefree attitude of...
This just super makes me laugh. →
I am exceedingly, uncomprehendingly, remarkably, extraordinarily blessed. I really cannot understand why Jesus would so shower me blessings. It blows my mind. I have a wonderful mother and a loving father, I go to a gorgeous school with an exceptional, highly esteemed nursing program. I have breathtaking friends. The Lord is placing me into some really cool ministry opportunities, and everyday...
Thirteen Love Lessons for Men
1. You were made to furiously pursue a woman. Stop waiting for your odds to get better. Just go for it and give it all you’ve got. #single-folks #married-folks 2. Once you’ve pursued her and won her over, keep pursuing. She’s not a trophy. We stop pursuing when Jesus stops pursuing us. 3. Don’t give your kids the liberty to ever say “I never saw dad cry”. ...
