Dear Friend



Dear Friend,

Take a breath. Hold it. 

Hear that beat...that steady, underlying pounding?

It's life.

Blood, cells, hope. All running wild through your veins and through your arteries and through your heart. It's life. 

You're alive.

Go back.

You've got a past. We've all got a past. Things we regret. But flash forward again, and you're lovely.

Things have changed since then. And yet you are still lovely. 

Our summers of change are draining into our silver mornings. It's okay. 

It's okay.

You're alive. 

Tomorrow will be a new day. The sun will come up slowly, as it always does. And the world will wake up all at once, cold and crisp. 

It's okay. 

There's life in you yet. 

Love,
   Me


"Let us fall into the hands of the Lord, for his mercy is great." (2 Samuel 24:14a)

  10. Am i a late comment-er on this post? I think so...Oh well.
    Congrats on 100 posts, girly! That's literally so freakin' awesome <3
    I love your posts, and I can actually narrow it down to one main reason: You bring out the beautifulness in everyday life in your posts, and make one feel alive again. And another thing is that you mention God someway or another in most of your posts, and to me that is just like....AMAZING.
    I would follow again in a heartbeat, I really would.
