an even greater love

In the end it’s all about Jesus, do not let hate or fear blind you from the love that is eternal. Look to Christ, it is only when we see the storm around us that we begin to sink, just keep your gaze on Jesus.

The hope of heaven is far greater than the reality of earth, learn to trust God even when your heart is troubled. His love is greater and it will never fail.

Cultural Bit: Christmas in Japan is a rather unique experience. It’s extremely recent that Christmas even be celebrated on a national level in Japan, but has been going on long enough for some unique traditions to take hold.

In most of the world, Christmas is a time for reflection on peace and acts of charity, both to loved ones and the less fortunate. However, in much of Asia, Christmas is treated as a romantic holiday on par with (if not exceeding) Valentine’s Day or White Day.

Christmas Eve/Day are considered prime date nights and, if you’ve been dating for a while, there’s an even greater expectation to propose. Reservations for fancy restaurants and love hotels are typically booked solid until well after New Year’s. Christmas songs, another holiday tradition to recently take off, tend to focus on romantic ballads over joyful nostalgia.

Another quirk is the tradition of eating KFC for Christmas dinner. This tradition started in the 80′s, a time when very few Japanese celebrated Christmas in any capacity. For unknown reasons, KFC decided to change that and launched a huge ad campaign mostly targeting women and teen girls. This campaign was so successful that it effectively started Christmas in Japan as we know it today.

To this day, lines wrapped around every available KFC are a common sight as early as 2 weeks before Christmas, and people often have to call ahead to reserve buckets. Assuming the Colonel’s sold out of original recipe, chicken karaage is also an acceptable substitute.

Little things in Zelda I love:
  • the way ww link’s hair flies back when he runs
  • that face tp link makes when he meets ooccoo and ooccoo jr. the first time
  • the fact that ss link smiles when he holds remlits
  • oot link sneezing and shivering in the ice cavern 
  • tp zelda–a princess–bows to tp link–a ranch hand from a small village

Sometimes it’s hard for me
To formulate sentences;
I shake between syllables and
Trip with every pause.

You give me no chance
To be faulty– you demand
My mind to be clear;
My love is strict
And delirious.

He gave me a choice
Between staying and going–
I grasped him right
And sang our demons to sleep;
That night was warm
And full of buildings.

My Brooklyn
Is not yours, for
It is greater

And I
Love you more
All the time (even
Before I knew

Please Help Me

Alright folks,

so shit hit the fan today, i hate having to do this but
For the past 2 ½ months, i’ve been dealing with a lot of physical and mental illnesses that are literally prohibiting me from getting a job. i’ve been in the hospital multiple times in the past month and i’ll have a surgery coming up in november to find out the severity of my ulcer in my stomach. blood puke and such is minimal as of late but it’s still there and it prevents me from gaining weight, which really sucks for someone as tall as me. my family finally got insurance but we’re still struggling to pay for my medication as well as my tuition. 
To make things EVEN greater for me, today I have lost 150$ plus worth of ID and Transportation fees (which is my metro pass that is bought monthly to get me from home to school) as well as my house keys. My family really doesn’t have the money to replace a lot of these things and we really struggle to pay for medication and my tuition..etc.

PLEASE DON’T FEEL OBLIGATED TO BUT it would be so amazing if y’all could help me out by donating to my paypal

if all my followers donated a dollar i would have enough to pay for my tuition for 3-4 years! which is amazing!

if y’all can’t donate thats totally okay but PLEASE spread the word for me, i really need you help.

thank you so much!


When you come home to me, your hand will touch my face, and banish any trace of gray. Soon, a love will rise anew, even greater than the joy I felt just missing you. (x) - (for @lemonyandbeatrice)

Watched 4.12 again and after 6.01 it's even more heartbreaking. Especially THE KISS. They've evolved so much since then. It's bleaker, yes, but their bond got even stronger, the intimacy greater and the love even deeper. Carrie wanted the kiss so badly, she seemed absolutely lost in the moment and in him. Now, being even more in love and knowing what she has in him and how he felt/feels about her, I can't even imagine the scale of emotions when they kiss again. I hope they will do it justice..

Exactly, Anon. I mean, it has now been 3 years since The Kiss by the show’s timeline, and when you remember how hopeful they were in that moment and then think about everything that has happened since, it is absolutely heartbreaking. But, like you say, their bond is even stronger now. 

And I’m sure they’ll do justice to The Kiss 2.0 ;)

“He wasn`t as tough as they all thought, and she knew it.” “Happily ever after?please.” 

I hope you like it @highchu, sorry if it`s a little bit short. 

She looked at him as he stood with his back facing her, and pondered upon the events the had let the dark haired man into his life. She was, of course, aware that he was no man. He was a god, as he so loved to remind her. But she knew something that no other did. He was capable of showing great kindness, and even greater love. He wasn`t as tough as they thought, and she knew it. He was a broken man. 

“This is a silly story.” he said as he turned around, a worn copy of Cinderella in his hands. “No true story ends with eternal love.” She tilted her head and looked at him, trying to read him. Read his emotions, and impossible task she might add. “So you don`t believe in them?” He looked at her with a look of utter incredulousness. “Happily ever after? Please.” He said, and rolled his eyes. “Don`t tell me you do?” He took her silence for a yes, and shook his head. “but why? it makes no sense.” She pulled him so that he was lying down next to her. Leaning over him slightly, she brushed his pale cheek with her hand. “But it does my love. You shall see.” She said, and pressed her lips to his.

I was tagged by @kindlykarlirose​ and @walden-west​ to list ten good things that happened in 2016 (could be about you, the world, your friend, etc. as long as they are positive things) then tag 10 friends, so here ya go!

  1. I turned 20 which signified a whole new milestone and decade of my life.
  2. I finished my Sophomore year at UW-Madison, so I’m officially halfway done with undergrad.
  3. I studied abroad in Rome (and crossed off like 5 bucket list items in one trip).
  4. I became a Certified Nursing Assistant and have really taken monumental steps towards my future goals.
  5. The kids I nanny and I went on even more adventures and my love for them grew even greater.
  6. I let the world know about my eating disorder and the response was nothing but positive support and love, even when I thought the worst of myself.
  7. I went to a sunflower farm and my soul was filled with the beauty and brightness.
  8. My friends and I went on a roadtrip to the U.P. and kayaked through the Sea Caves.
  9. I met so many great people who have changed my life beyond words (I also may have a crush on one of them…ooops (it’s hopeless though…))
  10. God has continued to show me that this life is something spectacular (which has led me to really lean into Him and trust that His plan is even more incredible than my own).

I’m gonna tag @ornornorkorlor, @fearfullyyandwonderfullymade, @deltasfinest, @starbucksanddaydreams, @relentlessandimperfect, @sunday-morningg, @themindof-nadia, @bibleandcoffee, @foreverinlovewithlovee, and @skylinesandstarlights!

You know, this place we live in, it’s interesting. Every day, if you’re lucky enough, you wake up to the same sun rising somewhere far away, what seems like the other side of the world. Sometimes it shines brighter, some times it brings warmth and happiness, and sometimes it’s hiding behind the clouds. And yet, you know it’s there.

But there comes a time when it needs to go, needs to be replaced by something even greater, it depends. The moon and the stars, oh how I love the night sky, filled with thousands of shining dreams, and that lonely object, that once in a while charges it’s shape. Something about the night time is just so fascinating, you know? At times, you can see a falling star, or, as I like to think, an angel coming to this planet Earth we call our home. Sometimes, when the rain is pouring down on you, there’s this one little light that guides you home.

You know, I once had a sun. I held it in my hands and got burnt. It’s beauty, warmth, brightness, - it didn’t make me happy.

But then I found you, my moon. Just like the moon, you can change your shape, but I know, that behind it, behind the darkness, behind the night sheet, you’re still you. Dark circles underneath your eyes, creases on your forehead, freckles you seem to hate, - every time I look into those beautiful eyes of yours I see you. I see the moon and the stars in your eyes, I see the way it brings a smile to your face.

I love the nights when it’s just you and me, starting into what seems like nowhere. But to you, it’s everything.

And maybe, just maybe, the next time you look into my eyes, you’ll see that you are my everything.

Because that’s another place you can find the moon and the stars.

Hello love <3 Sirius x Pandora "It might have been love, if we'd had more time. I wanted it to be love."

“It might have been love, if we’d had more time. I wanted it to be love.”  Sirius rubbed the back of his neck as he forced the words out of himself, his eyes on the ground.

Pandora smiled softly, even though she had tears in her eyes.  “Our love belongs to others, Sirius,” she said.  He looked up and searched her pale blue eyes as she brushed her hand along his cheek.  “You have a love far greater than you can even imagine waiting for you.”

Send me a ship and a sentence and I’ll write the next five

Thank you, Ash darling!
