I am so thankful that I have a joy that the world can not rob me of; I have a treasure that the world can not take from me; I have something that is not in the power of man or devil to deprive me of, and that is the joy of the Lord.
Funny how 11pm drives home bring out all of your random deep fears, of darkness and failure and the brevity of life and of not loving enough or never finding someone to love (or never being the one found).
But it’s also funny, or just really, really good, how 11am can bring all sorts of positive possibilities and light and happy thoughts. Daylight sometimes makes all the difference. And all is well again.
Ah, this is the kindest thing I’ve read in a while. I want to visit South Africa someday! Tumblr is really cool in the way that I have come in contact with Christians all over the world. Truly amazing. Thank you so much :) Have a blessed day!
To laugh is to risk appearing a fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out to another is to risk involvement.
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss.
To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To hope is to risk pain.
To try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
