Shelly, I’m tearing up at 15. That’s lovely. And 11? I thought I was the only person who loved that feeling of lift off! :) Love these.

Oh I love it, Heddy, the plane ride while going somewhere is often one of the best parts!  I love when big planes take off, especially.  As for number 15, that’s my mantra for life.  My mom was a wise woman.

liddym2113 mentioned you in a post “15 Things That Make Me Happy”

…WONDERFUL whowhatsitwhich!!!!! I’m tagging meeshiefeet, littleshelly0619 , ithinkurawesome, illusianation, subversivegrrl,…

Okay, let’s see….

1)  The love of my children, seeing how smart, gorgeous, and individual they are.

2)  Coffee.  Lots and lots of coffee.

3)  Being able to look up life problems in my Life Application Bible and finding peace and wisdom there.

4)  Facebook chat with my wife and all my other peeps.  It’s become a beloved habit.  Oh, and texting, too!  I love it when my phone goes off

5)  Cooking, when a homemade dish comes out really well, and seeing the satisfied smiles on people’s faces, knowing I put them there.

6)  Standing at the edge of the ocean early in the morning or late in the evening, feeling the peacefulness of God’s mighty creation.  I don’t get to do this nearly enough.  

7)  Watching my kids while they are sleeping and getting secret kisses on the forehead, cheeks and nose.  The back of the hand or the tips of the toes are nice, too.  :)

8)  Memories of my loved ones who have passed on, especially when something happens to remind me of them. 

9)  Hairdos, massages and pedicures.  Again, does NOT happen nearly enough. 

10)  Good music, any kind, but usually older is better, to me. 

11)  Travelling by plane.  The feeling after takeoff and the plane begins it’s ascent.  Then looking out the window at the clouds or the world below.  It’s like a new and exciting adventure.  

12)  Feeling truly understood or accepted, without judgement.  It’s a miracle in itself.

13)  My friends who I’ve made since my coming to Tumblr.  You are all such a blessing, you have no idea. 

14)  Caryl, Reedus, McReedus, and all that those imply.  The fic and the fellowship.  Fangirling and shipping happiness and not seeing the bad stuff.  Spoilers!

15)  Knowing that although life can be crappy, that there is something that my mom told me that has never, ever failed me.  ”God may not show up when you want Him to, but He’s always on time.”    

Not tagging anyone because I don’t want to leave anyone out, but if you are reading this now, consider yourself tagged.  Only if you want to, lol, but I would love reading more about everyone here.

Ok. Think I have my outfit for the Zombie Bash planned out. Hopefully I can pull this off. I’ll be wearing this as part of the costume. Stay tuned!

I think my wife is going to be a hot little steampunk wench.  Yes, yes, I do…

The most hardcore handshake of all time. 
And that’s why books are never going to die. It’s impossible. It’s the only time we really go into the mind of a stranger, and we find our common humanity doing this. So the book doesn’t only belong to the writer, it belongs to the reader as well, and then together you make it what it is. Paul Auster (via wordpainting)

Has anyone else lost their xkit?  I mean, it just……vanished?  

And no, I’m not crazy.  At least not in that way.

Q: Theology Thursday: I find myself feeling a lot of guilt when I pray and ask God for help with personal things. It feels like I'm making a request to a fairy godmother rather than seeking guidance from my Father. There are so many things happening in the world today, that asking for guidance or direction in things like my career or my family life seems... selfish. Thoughts?

phoenixwrites:

Our God is a personal God.  While I think it is important to pray for people and places in turmoil, like Iraq or St. Louis, don’t make the mistake of devaluing yourself.  You are priceless to God and our God is a relational God.  He wants to hear everything—your worries, your concerns, your struggles, and your blessings.  The nice thing about an infinite God is that there is enough of Him to help you find direction in your life and help the children in Gaza or the protesters in St. Louis.

C.S. Lewis has a fantastic book on prayer called “Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer”.  He wrote, “It is no use to ask God with factitious earnestness for A when our whole mind is in reality filled with the desire for B. We must lay before Him what is in us, not what ought to be in us.”  I love that—we must lay before him what is in us, not what ought to be in us.  God wants us, not who we think we should be.  

Sometimes I have a bad habit of what I call “grocery listing”—basically listing off issues in my life that I want God to fix—and that was it.  Now there’s nothing wrong with asking him for help.  Remember, prayer is a conversation and half of a conversation is listening.  I would recommend trying a listening prayer.  Basically quieting your soul, focusing on the stillness, silencing all words in your head—and listening.  Listening to whatever God puts on your heart.  This takes practice, trust me—I don’t do it as often as I should because it’s very challenging to shut off all the voices in your head.  I’d recommend researching meditation or yoga—these are great ways to incorporate listening prayer at the bare basics.

God wants us in our joys and sorrows, He wants all of us to fulfill our whole potential, to be the incredible people He created us to be.  Never think that because someone else has it worse off than you do, that God doesn’t care about you.  

Yes, God does care about *all* areas of our lives, even the little things.  And thanks, phoenixwrites for reminding me how to get back into “listening prayer.”
