The Breakfast Club
“And these children that you spit on as they try to change their worlds; are immune to your consultations, they’re quite aware of what they’re going through.” -David Bowie
Perhaps the most challenging and intense passages...
Matthew 19:21 (NLT) “If you want to be perfect, go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” — This is a call on so many of our lives, to give away everything for Christ’s sake and to live, breathe, and survive in His presence. It is honestly better than anything and everything on this...
trail: 10 Simple ways to get Happy. →
jarrodis: 1. Practice mindfulness. Be in the moment. Instead of worrying about your checkup tomorrow while you have dinner with your family, focus on the here and now — the food, the company, the conversation. 2. Laugh out loud. Just anticipating a happy, funny event can raise levels of…

People stopped caring; they didn’t try to get me out anymore. They just left me there. I realized I needed more. More than just surviving, more than just existing…I have...
Thinking about creating another blog.
I have so many ideas and creations, I want to compile them all on a separate blog because all of these thinkings I’ve been having have one thing in common: Coffee….and Crocheting! So here I go! Tirzah
I’m done with people who don’t give a crap about me. I have so many people who love me an care about me…so why should I care what these other people think? Goodbye Woodsedge. It was fun, but I’m not going to learn from you any longer. Goodbye old friends, when you call me up wanting friendship again, then we’ll talk. I’m done being hurt by you. Thank you, and...
I love you. You are legitimately the most amazing person I’ve ever met. It brings me the utmost of joy to help you, love you, serve you and keep you. I want you to know that you are always on my mind. Even if I haven’t seen you in a week or talked to you all day, I’m always wondering what you’re up to. Anyway, please sleep well, dream well and be well my dear. I’m...
Best thing I've read on tumblr.
Professor : You are a Christian, aren’t you, son?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor: So, you believe in GOD?
Student : Absolutely, sir.
Professor : Is GOD good?
Student : Sure.
Professor: Is GOD all powerful?
Student : Yes.
Professor: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn’t. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?
(Student was silent.)
Professor: You can’t answer, can you ? Let’s start again, young fella. Is GOD good?
Student : Yes.
Professor: Is satan good?
Student : No.
Professor: Where does satan come from?
Student : From … GOD …
Professor: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Student : Yes.
Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?
Student : Yes
Professor: So who created evil ?
(Student did not answer.)
Professor: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor: So, who created them ?
(Student had no answer.)
Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son, have you ever seen GOD?
Student : No, sir.
Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?
Student : No , sir.
Professor: Have you ever felt your GOD, tasted your GOD, smell your GOD? Have you ever had any sensory perception of GOD for that matter?
Student : No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.
Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?
Student : Yes.
Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student : Nothing. I only have my faith.
Professor: Yes, faith. And that is the problem Science has.
Student : Professor, is there such a thing as heat?
Student : And is there such a thing as cold?
Student : No, sir. There isn’t.
(The lecture theatre became very quiet with this turn of events.)
Student : Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.
(There was pin-drop silence in the lecture theater.)
Student : What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?
Student : You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light. But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it is, were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?
Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man?
Student : Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.
Professor: Flawed ? Can you explain how?
Student : Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good GOD and a bad GOD. You are viewing the concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
Professor: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.
Student : Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The Professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going.)
Student : Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor. Are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?
(The class was in uproar.)
Student : Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?
(The class broke out into laughter.)
Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?
(The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable.)
Professor: I guess you’ll have to take them on faith, son.
Student : That is it sir… Exactly ! The link between man and GOD is FAITH. That is all that keeps things alive and moving.
That student was Albert Einstein.

lightfromawave: Funny how I’ve moved into a love for someone so strong that the phrase, “I think about you all the time,” has slowly morphed into something that feels like an inner conversation between me and him - “Of course.. of course my thoughts circle around you all the time. You’re like the stones in my…
The more I stay awake the more I realize...
I am a completely blessed human being. I have the best family, the bestest of friends, the most amazing love of my life, and a God who looks out for me. I know I’m all over the place, and sometimes I don’t even know what I’m doing. I just hope that by some crazy chance, I’ll be in the place that God wants me, with people that I love surrounding me. I want others to be that...
Sometimes I wonder why God took you away from me, and if I will actually see you in Heaven. I don’t want to put belief or religion into this, because I don’t actually know. But I begged God for your salvation. I prayed earnestly that He would take you into His Kingdom because no matter what our religious differences were, you were a freaking star. You showed His love to everyone that...
