the best of today and tomorrow

Time often feels like an enemy because it seems to work against us. We look back over the years and wonder where they’ve gone. We look back over the weeks and months and get frustrated with ourselves because of the progress that we haven’t made. But when we find ourselves feeling this way, we must remind ourselves of this: Isn’t time in God’s hands? Doesn’t He hold our yesterday, today, and tomorrow in His mighty hands? Yes, the clock may be ticking in this physical world, but that doesn’t mean that the best of our days are behind us. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t enough time for God to make things beautiful in the future, and also in this present moment. His timing is perfect, and though it can be hard to grasp this when the days and years seem to fade into one another, continue to hold onto this:

He has made everything beautiful in its time. - Ecclesiastes 3:11

When it comes to His timing, everything is going to fall into place. And He doesn’t need our timelines and deadlines to do a miraculous work in our lives. So as you wait, don’t spend your life waiting around doing nothing. Spend your time living, loving, and serving. God is already making things happen in your life today. Become so invested in serving and embracing the opportunities God has placed in your life that you’re no longer thinking about what you don’t have all the time. Get to the point where you can scroll past something on social media that you desire to have and you no longer feel empty because you don’t have it. Get to the point where you’re so excited about what God is doing today that you don’t even have time to worry about next year right now. Get to the point where you’ve gained this kind of perspective: “I know God has me in this moment and this season for a reason. So I’m going to make the most of it. Not worried if I’m missing out or if my time is almost up. Time is in His hands, and through Jesus, I will make the most of it everyday.”

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE! Luca is now home from surgery. They did a spay, mass removal, and tail amputation. They took a lot off her tail which means her tail was a lot worse than we thought, both myself and the vets. They did xrays to see if the cancer had spread and if so, where and she is officially cancer free!

We do, however, have to do a few follow up visits, so she’s not out of the woods yet. There’s still a chance something could happen during the healing process that could require emergency attention.


I spoke with the investigating officer today about her and her case, I brought my vet bills, pictures, screen shots of conversations, and they will be making contact by tomorrow afternoon with the people that did this to my baby.


As I said, we’re not out of the woods yet. Please continue to share her gofundme, we still need help covering some costs for her. We want to make sure she gets the best care and treatment possible. So please don’t give up on us.

Another Man’s Treasure

A/N: This is a completed five-part mini-series because @alrightpetal and I have this thing about making Harry super vulnerable and flawed. So here you go.

// Another Man’s Treasure // Mind on a Mission // Take the Lead // Worth the Pain // Wings of Butterflies


…I’m gonna show you tonight! I’m alright! I’m just fine! And you’re a tool so, so what?

You belted your heart out up on stage, pumping your fist in the air to empower your words even further. It was a good thing you knew all the words, too, because your mates had bought you so many drinks your vision was crossed and blurred you couldn’t have read the lyrics to an unfamiliar song. Then you would have just been a blubbering fool butchering a karaoke performance. And that would have been embarrassing.

Singing yourself blue in the face—and drinking yourself into oblivion—served as the perfect outlet for your aching heart. Hours earlier, you’d been dumped. Or more accurately, replaced.

It’d been a week since you’d heard from your long-term boyfriend, and while you knew he was on holiday with his mates—a holiday you hadn’t been invited on—it was still odd that you hadn’t heard from him at all. Not even a text to let you know that he’d made it to Amsterdam. You didn’t expect too much communication; you trusted him to treat you right, but, silly you, you thought your boyfriend might actually miss you and want to say hi.

Last night after seven and a half days of nothing, you completely lost it and called him forty-seven times in a row. And not a single one was answered. So you rang your closest friends and they came over, laptops and tablets in hand, and intense cyber-stalking commenced.

It only took thirty-four minutes for your good mate Lindsey to unearth a damning post on Insta that your boyfriend was tagged in by a girl you kind of knew. The picture itself wasn’t awful; honestly you couldn’t make out much besides silhouettes and drinks. Even the caption wasn’t much; all it said was, “this guy” with a random slew of emojis. But the funny thing was, when you tried to search for it yourself, nothing came up. Meaning you were blocked. You weren’t meant to see this picture.

Twenty-two minutes of super-sleuthing was enough time for your oldest friend Ashley to find every social media account the girl had, and then eventually uncover her phone number.

In thirteen minutes you had a text drafted to her that was so long it was broken into five different parts when you hit send.

And one minute and fifty-four seconds is all the time your boyfriend—well ex-boyfriend—allowed you to speak to him today before he told you he was coming back tomorrow and there’d be no need for you to come see him. Tomorrow or ever again.

So your mates did what they knew best. They took you out, got you absolutely smashed, and then got you up on stage to pour your heart out. Somewhere in between I Will Survive and Total Eclipse of the Heart, you got a bit weepy and ended up calling your brother from the toilet. It took you awhile to realize you weren’t actually sobbing to him but his voicemail, and as soon as you did you pulled yourself back together and headed out for another drink and a rousing rendition of Since U Been Gone.

The few other patrons in the pub were hardly paying attention to your drunken warbling on stage, only breaking from their conversations when your mates would cheer at the end of each song, some of them even offering half-hearted claps. If they were annoyed, they certainly didn’t let on. Most likely, they pitied you; for Christ sake, you pitied you.

When your song ended, you finished the rest of your drink and began flipping through the songbook. Liberation was surging through you and you wanted a song to match your mood; something to serve as a proper fuck you to the twat you’d wasted the last few years of your young life on.

The book closed on your fingers, and you stumbled back in surprise. Were books automated now too?! You still weren’t over the automated tills at Tesco, would you now have to get used to robotic books closing on you when they’d had enough?!

“[Y/N].”

You looked up, your blurred vision slowly coming into focus as you swayed on the spot. A robotic book didn’t close itself on you, a person had closed it. Which was rather rude of them.

[Y/N],” he repeated. Finally he came into view and you cocked your head in confusion.

“Hazza?” you slurred, taking a step closer to get a better look. You nearly toppled off the stage, but Harry was quick to grab you by the waist and steady you before easing you down.

Happy #SyndullaSunday with an eversoslightly different photo!

hey everyone it’s dani

i don’t know how else to put this. today james was found passed away in his home. i have spoken to his family and they don’t know what happened. an autopsy will be started tomorrow but they might not know anything for up to two months.

i don’t know what else to possibly say. i’m sure many of you knew how amazing of a person james was. he struggled, but he always remained strong and did his best to keep others happy and smiling. he really appreciated all of you for the things you did for him; helping donate water or help paying for his bills to keep his home. he wouldn’t have been around on this website so long if it weren’t for all of you.

if you’d like to extend any messages to his family to express your sympathies or share any stories, please message him here and i’ll do my best to pass them on.

thank you all so much

and to james, i really love you. i’ll really miss you. rest in peace.

Length: 4.8k

Summary: Jung Hoseok was once the sweetheart of the school, the dance captain whom every girl, including you, can’t help but fall head over heels for. But like the force of the ever-glowing sun, everything that rises must also set. A year of inactivity later and he’s now the school’s resident bad boy. You’re a firm believer of allowing the past be the past, and yet you can’t help but wonder where the risen sun has gone into hiding—because perhaps its shadows have out-shined its own radiance.
