20years old and young in heart. Learning to become the woman God intends me to be. Walking in the grace of Him daily. "I must decrease, so that He may increase" John 3:30.

Sometimes you are brave and courageous and stressed out and falling apart all at the same time. 

These things are not mutually exclusive.

ineffable
[in-ef-uh-buhl]

(adjective) In the list of one of the most 100 beautiful words in the English language, ineffable’s beauty lies in its flowing sound and meaning. Ineffable describes the sentiment of being unable to express something in words because it is too extreme to communicate; words cannot possibly do justice at this particular moment.  (via splitterherzen)

Love is absolute, it holds nothing back, it speaks, lives, grows, and pours out; To love, you must be willing to surrender your protection, wants, passions, and ultimately, your life. This is why it hurts so much when love is not returned, and this is why you are transformed when you love Christ.

—T.B. LaBerge // Go Now (via tblaberge)

It always struck me in years after how bizarre it was, how two people could look at one another with such tenderness and complete love, and how quickly that could dissolve into nothing but bitterness.

I hate surface conversations. I want people to be real when they talk and not just tell me what they think I want to hear. I don’t want tension, I want real.

One of the most satisfying experiences I know is just fully to appreciate an individual in the same way I appreciate a sunset. When I look at a sunset … I don’t find myself saying, “Soften the orange a little on the right hand corner, and put a bit more purple in the cloud color” … I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch it with awe as it unfolds. It is this receptive, open attitude which is necessary to truly perceive something as it is.

I like to think that we’ll find each other in a place that is unfamiliar, but we’ll be okay, because you and I will find memories within our smiles; a life time to be had in the depths of our dancing eyes.

We once learned to breathe, eat, walk, laugh, love, and live; now we’re learning to heal.

—T.B. LaBerge // Unwritten Letters to You (via tblaberge)

When my words fail, may my silence be a melody that speaks volumes into your soul.
