Then Peter came to Him and asked, “Lord, how often should I forgive someone who sins against me? Seven times?”
“No, not seven times,” Jesus replied, “but seventy times seven!”
or that we could survive on things we love to do - not career stuff but our quirky talents we love to do most when no one is around, like singing in the shower or being excellent at sliding across hardwood in socks
Everyone should give a second of there time to reblog this. Instead of reblog girls in crops tops. Just shows raw love.

SOMEONE TAKE ME BACK TO UGANDA RIGHT NOW PLEASE
I have to confess that I love a good love story (& also that I love the idea of love). I especially admire stories of courting where friendships blossom and it’s all just so beautiful. I hoped for my personal love story to be alike to that. But recently I have come across stories where there is love on fire. Now I’m not sure which kind of love I would like to receive in my future.
I have always known that there are different types of love and even that people feel love in so very different ways. But some of the books that I have had the joy of stepping into have drawn a picture of comfortable love, where love blossoms from friendship and it is safe and lovely, as well as love that burns with passion and seems almost alive all on its own.
I believed that I would want safe and comfortable love, but when you realize that there’s the safe choice that will appease you and the radical choice that is a risk but fulfills you, how can you choose to settle??
It is of my opinion that any portrayal of romantic love can be flipped back tumour relationship with God. Why should I settle for this lukewarm relationship and love that most people settle for within Christianity, when I could burn bright like a star. Some may argue that those that burn bright do not burn for as long, but I would rather shine for the world to see, both spiritually and romantically, than to fade into the background of comfort and safety.
We were never designed to be comfortable and I know most humans strive to reach true comfort in their lifetime, but I have always wanted to step out and burn bright.
I’m so excited I’m like shaking with anticipation..!
I just applied to potentially my dream job. Meaning that it could be fantastic but I don’t know if I’ll get it so I’m a little hesitant to get too excited over it if it doesn’t work out..
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me pray for this, just like take 2 seconds to say “Sup God? Katie is really excited for this kinesiology job & it could be great & I just pray that you would make your path for her known for this upcoming year & equip her for whatever job you bless her with. (But this job would be super stellar, so please?) K, thanks ! LOVE YOUUU”
thanks guys - you’re the best. I could be a kinesiologist this fall. I could be a part of a health care team
MEEEE - A PART OF A HEATH CARE TEAM !!!!!!
It just warms my Canadian heart that I can go hug a snowman any time during the year - thanks Beardmore, ON !
I am old & wise & have learned to put few things on facebook and I wish I could say that I used my common sense to come to that conclusion, but in reality, I learned it the hard way.
And it is breaking my heart to see so many little teenagers learning it the hard way, too. My facebook account is strictly used now to stay in touch with family & friends who I don’t get to see on a regular basis & to post hilarious pictures on my friends walls. I learned the hard way not to post any personal info on that site, though..
IF I CAN GIVE YOU ONE PIECE OF ADVICE (that I wish I could give all the little youngin’s on my facebook who I met & mentored & now want to slap them upside the head with this): just don’t put up stuff that’s going to hurt when you take it down.
Prime example: relationship status. I can honestly say that after putting a few relationships up & then taking them down off that site, nothing rubs salt in the wounds like disconnecting something so public from someone who once meant a lot. I used to stress out for hours, sometimes days about changing that because I don’t want 300 friends offering me sympathy for something I couldn’t wrap my head around.
So yea, it weighs heavy on my hearts to see so much attention seeking through social media sites, so please do me & you a favour & keep your private vulnerable things private from all of the public until you in your heart are capable of dealing with all those feels
