nobody told me



they spend all of their time teaching us how to understand. how to read, to write, to fall in love and to fall out of love. they spend all of their time teaching us how. not why. there is no story of grace here. this is all survival.

nobody sat down, held my cold hands in theirs, and told me how to believe in things.

perhaps that is something one must learn. perhaps that is why i must walk to the Jordan alone. perhaps that is why the pilgrimage must be made to Zion. and so my Jesus leaves, and the blindness falls from this disciple's eyes, and i see.

now i know. this is a story of grace i cannot survive. 

i'm realizing here, that this is about believing in things.

why did nobody tell me before?

                / because you were going to learn, and it was going to be magnificent. ♥ xx


p.s. sissy got a new lens and we had too much fun trying it out! how do you darlings feel about a back -to-school post? ♥

  2. Holy mackerel. (so first off bloglovin' has been having problems with me so excuse me while i creep on a whole bunch of old posts to catch up). And second, this light. The smiles. The all american flawless beauty.
    the thing about some things is that they cannot be taught.
