Reblogging this because HEY LOOK A BUNCH OF WOMEN HAVE DIFFERENT HIPS and we don’t have the same anatomy every time HOW BOUT DAT SHIT
Beautiful how we’re all made of the same part, yet we’re all different.
Square hips represents woot
I love this. So many different shapes of beautiful.
If you find this post running through your dash, please take a moment to pray for me. This feels like drowning.
Old piece - "Running Into Time."
Just discovered this Facebook note I wrote over two years ago. The memories rush back like the strongest of floods.
Anything I put before my God is an idol.
Anything I want with all my heart is an idol.
Anything I can’t stop thinking of is an idol.
Anything that I give all my love is an idol.

A Swedish toy retailer is arming children with the ability to question outdated gender role, says Sarah Ditum.
She says their catalogue “is full of advertising designed to confound every gender prejudice. Behold: a girl … with a Nerf gun! A boy … holding a doll! A girl … in a blue T-shirt! Eat it, patriarchy.”
ha I feel like a lame-o, I was looking at the photos for a minute or two and kept wondering what they were supposed to be about. don’t see what this has to do with patriarchy per se, but eh.
"A fearful Christian will run away from God when they commit a habitual sin to avoid the punishment that must be soon to follow. A thankful Christian clings to God not knowing or caring if they’ve been rejected. A fearful Christian is focused on themselves and keeping their own butt out of trouble, a thankful Christian is focused on God, on His grace, His love, His amazing patience, His goodness, and believe me, that Christian is devoted."
"For a moment, sitting there in above the city, I imagined life outside narcissism. I wondered how beautiful it might be to think of others as more important than myself. I wondered at how peaceful it might be not to be pestered by that childish voice that wants for pleasures and attention. I wondered what it would be like not to live in a house of mirrors, evereywhere I go being reminded of myself."
"What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person."
oh my goodness.
“There is a sense in which the human soul has caved in on itself and is now held captive by a fixation with its own states and conditions and concerns. The soul has become parasitic on itself, feeding on its needs and cravings by excessive introspection and elaborate attempts to elevate its sense of self-worth. Your soul was never meant for this. You were designed for something better. You were built for the contemplation of something infinitely more complex, something incomparably more fascinating than your own “self.” You were created for the joyful contemplation of God.”
"When people ask, ‘You go to church? You’re a Christian?’ — what most people really mean is, ‘So you’re a good church kid? You don’t curse or smoke or drink or kick old ladies?’ And most of us answer, ‘Yeah, I’m trying.’ Except going to church doesn’t make us good, nor is church a special place for good people. The word Christian has become this loaded label that now means what we do instead of who we are. We’re adopted by a gracious good heavenly Father; we don’t ‘try’ to be His because He’s already called us to Him. The Real-Life Christian says, ‘I’m honestly just a broken mess who met Jesus and he is blowing me up.’ So when people ask about church, we can say, ‘I don’t know what you mean by that, but all I know is there’s nothing good in me except God in me, and everything bad in me, God is working on that."
