For those who feel like no one listens because they’re “too young”

“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.“ 1 Timothy 4:12.

These words were written by Paul to Timothy. Timothy was a very young leader in the church at Ephesus. Just like we constantly are told by those older than us, Timothy had his fair share of “What do you know? You’re young and inexperienced.” Paul saw this. What did he do? He encouraged Timothy to continue doing what he was doing. He encouraged Timothy to be an example to everyone.

When it comes to God, your age doesn’t matter. He has great plans for you and wants to see you accomplish great things. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re too young. Be an example to everyone. Show them God’s love.

These words got me through some tough times at the end of my time at the church I grew up in. These words still help me today. Because, no matter how old I get, someone is older and thinks they know better than I do (Which is sometimes the case. I’m not going to overlook wise counsel. I just don’t want to hear things like “You’re just a kid. You have no clue what you’re doing.”).

Just remember that there’s a difference between wise counsel from those who have experienced what you’re going through and not listening to you because of your age and/or inexperience. Soak up the wisdom of those who have come before you like a sponge. Wisdom and experience are important. But don’t listen to those who wish to discount you and what you’re doing because of your age. 

You are important. You matter. God loves you. Unlike people, God looks at your heart (1 Samuel 16:7). It is God we should aim to please, not others. If you show God to others through your speech, love, life, etc., He will see what you’re doing and reward you (Colossians 3:23-24).

I’ll repeat it because I know I need to hear it as well:
- You are important.
- You matter.
- God loves you.

Angsty relationship asks, Raydan and Kenna: 3, 7, 11, 12, 23, 25, 35

3. which one has more insecurities? over what?
Raydan. Deep down he worries about his past and thinks about where he began and he can’t believe that he’s King. He wonders if he’s equipped for this kind of life, a street rat from Lykos becoming King, and worries about a life in the public eye after spending so much time in the shadows.
7. would they hate-fuck if they were mad at one another? if they had a falling out?
Not their style. They actually try to keep disagreements out of their bedroom. In the period (before they were married) where they were unsure of their relationship, they put a temporary stop on their sexual relationship.
11. what’s their favorite pass time when they’re upset?
Kenna likes to practice her sword fighting or go for a ride or play with Fenris. Something outdoors and physical. Raydan likes to retreat to the shadows and a good book.
12. who do they confide in when shit hits the fan (besides each other)?
Other than Kenna, Annelyse is Raydan’s only real confident, though as he and Adder repair their relationship, he has become closer to her. Kenna has Dom, of course, and Val.
23. who’s more jealous?
Kenna. She knows Raydan loves her and would never be unfaithful to her, but sometimes she can’t help but be annoyed by the way other woman drool all over him.
25. what’s the one deal breaker for either of them (lack of communication, fear of commitment, etc)?
True betrayal. Kenna remembers the horrible nights when she thought Raydan had turned on her and she knows she could never survive going through that again. Raydan isn’t sure what his deal breaker is, both because he feels that he could forgive Kenna almost anything and because he has full faith in her honor and character.
35. do they have any regrets (regarding the other, or just in general)?
They both have many regrets because you don’t survive a war without regrets. On a personal level, they both regret that it took them so long to voice their feelings for each other.

手包みおやつ 月の温 雨音展示室にて
.
☆ 期間中の月・火・水曜日と、一部日曜日は、お休みです。
(営業日など 詳しくは HPにてご確認くださいませ)
.
.
冷たい雨が降っていた 立春の翌日。丘の浜辺にたたずむ小屋を、優しい手を持つひとが訪れてくださいました。
.
ああ この方も、手から何か ものを紡ぎ出すひとなんだろうなあということが じんわりと伝わってくるまなざしで、わたしの手を通して生まれたものたちを ひとつひとつ丁寧に眺めてくださっている姿と 流れてゆく静かな時間とが、寒い寒い小屋の中に、ほのかな光を残してゆきます。
.
「蒸しぱんを作っています」という言葉が そのひとからこぼれたとき、わたしのあたまの中で記憶が繋がり、扉の鍵を開けるような音が 微かに聴こえたのは、あの小屋が こっそり魔法をかけていてくれたからなのかもしれません。
.
.
明日の新月から 次の新月を過ぎた頃まで、三重県四日市市にある 「手包みおやつ 月の温」さんにて、小さな展示をさせていただきます。丘で閉めた扉が、こんな素敵な場所へとつながっているとは、これっぽっちも想像していませんでした。このへんてこなかけらたちが連れ出してくれる旅は、もしかしたら まだ始まったばかりなのかしら。そんなふうに 気持ちをふわり、自由にさせてくれた風に乗って、少し東へ旅をします。まきさん ご縁の糸を託してくださり ありがとうございます。
.
そして期間中の 8/13(日)の朝は、丘で出逢った 穏やかですこやかな光・ゆみやんさんに、月の温さんのすぐそばにある桜堤にて、原っぱヨーガをしていただけることになりました。月の温さんには どんな風が吹いているんだろうかと、雨上がり 桜が舞い散る中 初めて訪れたその日に、わたしが去って30分もしないうちに、ゆみやんが お母さんと一緒に訪れていたそうです。ゆみやんにとってもご縁の深い場所であるらしく、同じ風に吹かれ 深く深く呼吸できる日が待ち遠しいです。ゆみやん いつもありがとう。
.
すべて一点ものの作品は、期間中 波が寄せてはかえすように 流れ着いてゆきます。わたしの在店予定日は 7/23・8/12・8/13・8/26です。耳飾りの目標は100個だったのに、まだ半分を過ぎたばかり。。耳飾りではないものも含めて、少しずつ紡いでゆけたらと思っています。旅人にとっての 小さなお守りとなるようなものを。
.
みなさま どうぞよろしくお願い致します。

7. what was your life like last year?

Ha. Kinda shit, same as every year.

12. what is something you want right now?

Sleep.

22. description of crush.

Oh lord, you’re not really gonna make me do this one are you? Also, which one? Hmmm… let’s see I’ll just pick one. Taller than me, male, blue eyes, blond hair, kind and sweet on the outside with a darker streak inside. Good sense of humor and too smart for me. Too good for me in general… yeah. That’s TMI already. XP

23. fear(s)

Death, oddly enough. Spiders. Poverty and homelessness.

25. role model

Oh come now, that should be obvious. For the uninformed, it’s Mr. Cat.

1, 4, 7, 12, 23 (:

1. Your current favorite song

I’ve got plenty! But I have to pick just one, so let it be “The Dreams of Children” by The Jam. Honestly it’s such a jam, no pun intended.

4. A song that you’re embarrassed to like

AFRICA BY TOTO AND TOO SHY BY KAJAGOOGOO!! THEY ARE CURSED BUT WE ALL SECRETLY LIKE THEM

Actually probably “Gorgeous” by Gene Loves Jezebel. It’s kinda cheesy but it resonates with me in a way.

7. A song from a genre you don’t usually listen to

“Telegraph Road” by Dire Straits. Not really my cup of tea but magnificent nonetheless.

12. A song that reminds you of someone you hate

I don’t really hate anyone :) except for Bob Geldof probably, so here’s a song of his: “Like Clockwork” by The Boomtown Rats (actually they are a tolerable band and I like their music but definitely not their asshat of a lead singer).

23. A song from the soundtrack of your favorite video game/movie/TV show

The insanely beautiful “Claudia’s Allegro Agitato” by Elliot Goldenthal from “Interview with the Vampire”, one of the best movies I’ve seen in my life.

Thank you so much for asking me! 💖

My immediate family all live in the same house, though my dad’s currently deployed. My extended family live all over the east coast from New Jersey to Florida.

12. What are you wearing right now?

50. What were you doing at 12AM last night?
Watching One Punch Man clips on YouTube 😂

Ok little backstory so, me @ceeblathers and @ghostkitten69 were playing with the idea that Lewis after coming back, still has some anger issues, and Vivi was trying to help him out. She tried some magic and things went wonky and Lewis ended up acting intoxicated in some way.

So sorta kinda drug reference to weed, but not really. (aside from a story about a coworker that inspired part of this story.) But its not really accurate to that. Its more of a mix of drunk and high.



[5/6/2015 11:31:28 PM] Ecto: oh man i just had a thought. cause earlier i was talking about vivi using crystal magic to help calm lewis. cause some crystals are supposed to have calming properties. but what if she overdoes it and lewis ends up the ghostly equivalent to stoned
[5/6/2015 11:34:05 PM] Ecto: and he just is kinda staring off into space, and asking arthur really weird questions
[5/6/2015 11:35:05 PM] Cee: omfg
[5/6/2015 11:35:24 PM] Cee: “arthur… what…. what do you think horses think about"
[5/6/2015 11:35:32 PM] Ecto: omg
[5/6/2015 11:35:35 PM] Cee: “VI WHAT DID YOU DO “
[5/6/2015 11:36:21 PM] Ecto: “arthur, do you every wonder if plates get sad when one breaks?”
[5/6/2015 11:36:29 PM] Ecto: “lewis….what…even”
[5/6/2015 11:36:44 PM] Cee: he just starts sobbing
[5/6/2015 11:36:49 PM] Cee: “they’d never know"

I'm SO happy you want to write drabbles, because I'm dying for another Marcel/Harry&Louis-story (because I know you also love Marcel). I'll give you some numbers, but you could write literally anything with Marcel and I would love it! Here it goes: 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, 23, 29, 33, 35, 39, 50. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU <3

Okay I decided to do #4 for this, since you listed 50, which was author’s choice.  Sorry for being selfish, I hope it turned out okay! MARCEL FOREVER!!

4. “Do you…well, I mean — I could give you a massage?”

This was the third consecutive night that Louis and Marcel had stayed late at work together.  Louis was used to staying until 5:30 or 6:00 every once in a while, but with their software conversion project going live at the end of the week, they’d been stuck in Marcel’s stuffy office until 7:00 or 8:00 at night lately, powering through dinner as they worked out bugs and ironed out last minute details.  It looked like tonight they’d be staying even later than ever.    

Louis sighed.  He’d run out to get sandwiches for dinner, and he felt a pinch of concern as he stood in the doorway, watching Marcel work.  Marcel was hunched over his computer with a deeply furrowed brow, his heavily gelled hair breaking free of its forced taming and falling into his face.  Every few minutes he’d rub at his back and neck, wincing, but getting right back to typing and scrolling.    

He needs to fix that chair. Louis thought, shaking his head in frustration.  He knows he needs better lumbar support.
