My thank you to witches

For anybody who ever think that overall witches are bad people...consider this.. It was a witch who first discovered me and what i was doing. It was a witch who encouraged me to try selling my wares for the pagan community. It was a witch who first showed me that there were people who actually DID everything they said they would do. It was witches who welcomed me to my first event with the pagan community and it was a warm welcome. Witches welcomed me and invited me to other events and other places because they wanted me to continue to do what I was doing for others. Witches realized i had a quality product and never talked negative about it. Witches offered hugs instead of avoidance when i showed up somewhere. Witches answered any question I ever had about what they did and how they did it and never had an issue answering. Witches showed me that there are two sides to a story and not just one side and you should always listen to the other side before coming to a decision. It was a witch who told me about other events going on and introduced me to pagan pride day. It was because of witches that I met the person who told me i could do wire wrapped stone jewelry, had it not been for that I may not be doing it today. Witches specifically asked for me when I came to an event to see if i was there. Witches offered me help if I lost my way and ever got lost going anywhere. It was a witch who gifted me a tent for the events I had been going to because they didn't want to see me bake in the sun anymore. Witches have supported me in the beginning and they still do today. Witches have improved my life beyond any other experience I could have had. Witches have shown me love from when we first met when others I have known for years haven't so much as picked up the phone to even call me. So i know a lot of what I have now is due to the fact that a witch cared, a witch believed in me, a witch saw the good in me and a witch knew that I could make a difference to someone. So, the next time you have a problem with a witch think twice. I know that many others have supported me since I started this and I truly thank you all but never, ever in your life overlook the importance of witches. They are people too. And great ones. Thank you for helping me become somebody. No matter what your path or what you practice, eternal thanks to you all from the bottom of my heart. Stonemage

💐 In The Name Of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

💌 It is possible to fall in love with your husband

Even if he's not very tall, wealthy or handsome,

When his heart, faith and persona caught your attention,

And through your bond with him, you've learned many life lessons.

~•~

Despite his acne, scars and any disfigurement,

And though he's not as muscular as other buff men,

It's feasible to stay loyal to your dear husband

When his efforts make him worthy of your affection.

~•~

Although he lacks six-pack abs or impressive talents,

Become mesmerized by how he's tough and hardworking,

Dedicated to winning, caring towards loved ones,

Funny, kind, understanding, and charming with children.

~•~

A loving spouse, in spite of his outward appearance,

Can be so captivating if he shines from within,

With trust in Allah, striving to be a good Muslim,

And supporting his family with halal income.

~•~

Who cares if your man doesn't look like K-Pop icons,

Or if his vigor doesn't match giants and lions.

So long as his commitment attracts sweet sentiments,

And loving him brings you near Allah, he's a blessing.

~•~

He's a keeper. He deserves you. At least he's trying.

Know he's doing his best. if only you could see him

When he's on duty, when he misses you, when driving,

And when he softly mentions your name while he's praying.

~•~

Remember he's human, not an ATM machine.

He's not your servant either. Support him like a team

Serving Allah together to fulfill all your dreams,

To reach Jannah, glad you didn't quit so you both win.

~•~

📖 Abu Huraira RadhiAllahu 'anhu narrated: Allah's noble Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, "If I were to order anyone to prostrate to another, I would have ordered a wife to prostrate before her husband."

Grade: Hasan (Fair) according to At-Tirmidhi

Ali Al-Qari said, "That she prostrates to her husband is due to the number of his rights over her and her difficulty in maintaining gratitude for them. This rhetorical point conveys the obligation of the wife to obey her husband in his rights. Indeed, prostration is not lawful to anyone other than Allah."

"In the shallow pools of self reflection there are shadows but in it's depth there is a darkness that can't be lit by mortal hands, only a soul could light that path to self understanding.."

When we begin to understand ourselves, we begin to see us for who we really are and that is not who we thought we were at all.. and that is what causes most of our pain in growing past it, cause we try to hang on to the lie that was us and be ignorant of the truth. That we love ourselves.. it's so easy to be mad at life and it's hard to let go, but do that and you will find untold amounts of happiness - eUë

The family is wonderful, but unless we understand the family in the context of the triune God who is magnifying and manifesting His glory in the world and painting the picture of it through this union that we call the family, then we are selling it short and we are not seeing it for what it really is and we are limiting our capacity to enjoy it and our capacity to glorify God through it as well.
