life snippets // some funny, some serious

Ok I'm not kidding this actually happened, DL is a kid from my school...Isaiah is my brother *headdesks*
One day in study hall...

DL: So you live in the country right?
Isaiah: Yeah
DL: So what's your water source?
Isaiah: Oh, we have a well
DL: So do you have to get buckets of water in the morning?
Me: *groans disgustedly*
Isaiah: Seriously? No!

For a star to be born
There is one thing that must happen
A gaseous nebula must collapse

So when you  c o l l  a  p  s  e 
when you c r u m b l  e
It's not your destruction

It's your birth

Where there is fear lies a lack of love; and when circumstances prevent love then the only way to overcome fear is to work hard in trusting God and in listening to the song he put in those things around you

-
As the rythmic rocking of my arms slow down the the swing of Frank Sinatra and my mind sways away with the frolicking jazz beats to the rolling lyrics of love songs. My eyes drift to the basket of laundry by the chaise and the soft yellow nursery light bounces off the darkness that peeks out the blinds and the warm bundle of a baby girl lets her tired eyes droop.

The toys by the window smile placidly and I gently drop down into the nursery chair and the baby girl in my arms sucks sweetly on her thumb, her doll like features carved soft by the dwindling light.

Between the syncopations of the oriental and the old
Lies dissonance
Sweet dissonance, sweet tirednesss
So many stories untold
So many dreams left unfinished
Tomorrow Perhaps?

(D is one of my best friends)

"D finished Les Miserables and he cried at the end ACTUALLY cried abshdjkz MY LIFE IS COMPLETE, I literally feel like my favorite books/music/movies are like my children and when someone loves and accepts them like I do those people are pretty surely gonna stay AHH you do not understand how good and happy I felt at that moment...I know I'm slightly crazy 😂"

(written as I sat by the fire with my family, we were all laughing and talking...my little bro was teaching my grandpa english and it was hilarious)

God Please keep moments this sweet, hilarious, so packed full of memories & feelings and spontaneous hugs and seeing your mother look younger by your grandmother, filled with flavors and tokens of the past, full of the ringing vibe that signals a new chapter, full of stories fit to go down in books...life is never perfect but it is good <3 Thank God <3

{ do you guys like this?  IT COULD TOTALLY BE MY EP ALBUM COVER SOMEDAY...I MEAN LOOK >> THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN}






What do you all think? Of these entries, goals and my mock album cover? :) I'm so sad to be gone from the blogosphere again, my computer is going through some tech issues (it's dead) and thank goodness I had this spare post planned or I would not be here at all. How are you all doing? <3

 And this is his command: 
to believe in the name of his Son, 
Jesus Christ, and to love one another 
as he commanded us.
