The Swing by Robert Louis Stevenson

How do you like to go up in a swing,
   Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
   Ever a child can do!


Raw Moments

These are moments that are not filtered or processed; they are everyday images.

-doing homework
-mowing the lawn
-grabbing breakfast
-reading in bed

My life is full of sorrow, hurt, and struggles, but filled with the joy and love Jesus brings. There are moments of struggle and moments of pure joy and laughter. This is life for me as it really is. We argue; Jesus gives us mercy and patience. Tears of sorrow run down our cheek; Jesus comforts us. We make mistakes; Jesus helps us learn and push through. Our bodies and souls are weak; Jesus gives us strength.

i think, ‘life is an extraordinary and mysterious thing and God has chosen me to live in this life’
