this is mine.

I wish I could remove your skin, and bones so that our souls could meet and dance and laugh together. That is the closeness I have so desired.

How volatile and untrustworthy memory is. How naive we are to depend on such a fragile, temperamental mechanism to keep our most important records straight.

—Jonathan Carroll / Bathing the Lion (via browndresswithwhitedots)

I woke up wanting
your lips on mine.
I woke up wanting
your arms around my waist.
I woke up wanting
our hands laced together.
I woke up wanting
to gaze in your eyes.
I woke up wanting you.

—Want.  (via deadtate)

Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say “My tooth is aching” than to say “My heart is broken”.

He tells us in a thousand ways that His will is our peace, His choices for us will lead to fulfillment and joy, the way of transgressors is hard. Do you supposed that we could find a better way than His? … Here is the opportunity offered. Be patient. Wait on the Lord for whatever He appoints, wait quietly, wait trustingly. He holds every minute of every hour of every day of every week of every month of every year in His hands. Thank Him in advance for what the future holds, for He is already there.
