“That’s the one thing Auburn and Auburn people have always instinctively known and should never forget.  We don’t need Matt Hayes or Mel Kiper or Craig James or Rece Davis or ESPN or FoxSports or Brent Musberger or Kirk Herbstriet to validate us.

We are Auburn. That’s all that matters, not what somebody on the outside thinks or doesn’t think.

We are not defined or limited by the perceptions of others.  We don’t need a T-shirt from Wal Mart boasting about things that never were to boost our ego.  We don’t use our battle cry as a taunt to prop up our self-esteem. Our sense of worth isn’t determined by the number of stickers and flags we can put on our car.

We are who we are. We are what we are. We do what we do. And we’re damn proud of it.”

The more I think about the trees and how it’ll be a LONG time before I can roll Toomer’s again, the more I get depressed.

Lydia twirled a strand of her auburn hair around a slender finger while reading a book next to stiles at their lunch table. Once she finished the page, she looked up and directed a question to him. "Do you believe the nonsense of love in books could ever be a real thing in our kind of life?"


“I think it could be.” Stiles replied, nodding his head. “If the two right people meet each other in our kind a life, yeah I think it could be a real thing. It just depends on the two people.”

@blondexter I can’t believe you’re gone and you’re not coming back. I remember when I was a freshman in high school and you were a junior and we dated. We never got to see each other considering you lived 5 hours from me. I still remember the song we had “Perfect Two” by: Auburn. Gosh I miss you and I will see you again. I love you Evan. RIP

I AM Auburn

I am Auburn.

I am the 30-year old couple coming back to campus for the first time with both little ones in tow. One wears her first blue and orange cheerleader outfit; the other wears #34 even though he is too young to understand why.

I am the 50-year old man who hoped no one saw tears in his eyes when the eagle circled the field. I was too choked even to say ‘War Eagle’. For a moment, I felt foolish and then I didn’t care. God, I love this place.

I am the 60 year old woman meeting her freshman granddaughter who is now the 3rd generation of AU students in our family. Despite my age, I’d strap it on Saturday and hit someone if it weren’t for my gender and this blasted arthritis.

I am Auburn and I have always believed I was different. You can see it when you look up into the stands. My orange is not the same as Tennessee’s and my blue is not that of Florida. But the differences go much deeper than my colors. Read my creed. What other school has one? I genuinely believe in these things. To be a real Auburn man or woman speaks of character, not of geography. All are welcome to walk though my gates, not just the wealthy or the elite.

anonymous asked:

Sienna, Ivory, Auburn?

Sienna: Do you believe in love at first sight?

I believe in something at first sight. But I don’t believe that one should mistake the plucking strings of a past, future, or potential connection for ‘Love.’ Lust perhaps, longing even, but not love. Love has to be carefully grown and fed on patience and trust. It’s too frail to bloom instantly.

Ivory: What’s your religion?

Motions to this blog.
From another ask on my main;
In the shortest terms I can manage, I believe all living things to be Gods, the reason for incarnating probably varies, to learn or just for fun or etc. It’s all kind of hazy and hard to explain, a little pointless even, but there you have it.

Autotheistic Polytheism is a good way to put it.

Auburn: Favourite band/singer?

Sleeping at last!
But I’m also very fond of Andrew Bird, Fleet Foxes & a few others!

Christian Universalism

Gloria Patri, Revised Prayerbook, 1903

In 1903 the following profession was published in the

Gloria Patri

, Revised Prayerbook. It contains the Five Principles of Faith and was approved by the General Convention.

“I believe in God, the Father Almighty and Universal;
     and in Jesus Christ his Son, the true teacher, example, and Savior of the world.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the quickener and comforter of men.

I believe in the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as a revelation of righteousness, truth and love.

I believe in the Holy Church Universal;
     in the communion of saints;
     in the certainty of punishment for transgression;
     in the forgiveness of sins;
     in the life immortal;
     in the final triumph of goodness and mercy;
     and in the union and harmony, at last, of all souls with God.”
