prayer sunshine

i was testing on my side account to see if this screen recorder would make things lag and i unintentionally caught the most horrible moment anyone that plays sif can relate to :^)

The Past is the region of sobs, the Future is the realm of
song. In the one crouches Memory, clad in sackcloth and ashes, mumbling penitential prayer; in the sunshine of the other Hope flies with a free wing, beckoning to temples of success and bowers of ease. Yet the Past is the Future of yesterday, the Future is the Past of to-morrow. They are one—the knowledge and the dream.
—  Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary

Sisters and brothers, I ask for protection and prayers for this fine furry brother.

Brayden is a therepy dog to my dear friend. We just got word today that he has Lyme disease. This sister of mine previously lost her service dog to blood cancer. She had only hours to say goodbye. I do not wish this fate on her again. His tests come back on Monday, the 19th. We pray that he will only need antibiotics, and that it has not spread to his kidneys. Please, even if you only light a candle for him, I will be eternally grateful. Thank-you.

The Prophet (ﷺ) would come home to ‘Aishah (رضي الله عنها) after a long day and she would embrace him and recite poetry to him just to calm him.

She would say,

“I have a sun and the horizon has a sun, But my sun is better than the sun of the sky, because the sun of the sky comes out after Fajr, but my sun comes out after ‘Isha.”

[When Desire Takes Over, pg. 57]

What the poem means is that the sun in the sky only shines during the day, but the radiance and light of the Prophet (ﷺ) is a 24 hour light and shines bright all the time.

These words made the Prophet (ﷺ) happy and it’s because of gestures like this that ‘Aishah (رضي الله عنها) remained his favourite wife.

The relationship the Prophet (ﷺ) had with ‘Aishah (رضي الله عنها) was so cute 😩 it’s things like this that you read and you just long for that companion.

May Allah grant us all a righteous spouse and make them the coolness and comfort to our eyes. Allahumma ameen.

Weather Report

Monday Black Hole warning. No big deal, just the standard weekly warning that someone will be devoured by the earth. Memorial services will commence immediately as usual.
Tuesday Wind. Panic. Run. Hide. Lock your doors. If the wind howls, knocks, speaks, or touches you… you will be in the prayers of our town.
Wednesday Sunshine all day. It will be confusing and awkward, and we’ll try to ignore it.
Thursday Darkness. Ah, sweet, familiar, dark skies and swirling glow clouds above.

So many prayers and positive vibes going out for this beautiful and brave, sweet little tomorrow. Her strength continues to amaze me. Please take a few moments to send up some prayers and positive, glittery sunshine vibes whenever you can tomorrow. Let’s show KHLO and her family the power of this Swift community to come together for one of our own. YOU ARE LOVED, KHLO. #STAYFEARLESSKHLOE
