Sister Love.

“My sisters were the coolest people I knew, and still are. I have always aspired to be like them and know what they know. My sisters were the color and noise in my black-and-white world-how I pitied my friends who had brothers. Boys seemed incredibly tedious and dim compared to my sisters, who were always a rush of energy and excitement, buzzing over all the books, records, jokes, rumors and ideas we were discovering together. I grew up thriving on the commotion of their noise, whether they were laughing or singing. I always loved being lost in that noise.” Robert Sheffield


Unashamed Intimacy.

"We desire unashamed physical, spiritual, and emotional intimacy, because it mirrors Christ's love for us - We are broken, but He still loves us. " -Wes Simmons

My campus minister said this to us on a monday night group meeting last semester and it is something that has stuck with me ever since.  He continued on by saying, "Don't require a man to be Jesus for you, because he can't and he won't, which will only leave you disappointed."  So often I find myself reading books or watching movies and seeing relationships working.  Couples my age finding love and getting married.  And I want that so badly.  And the reason I want that, is because it is what I was made for.  I was made to be loved and to love in return.  It is the very fiber of who we are.  We are creatures that crave love.  And we look for it in money, jobs, sex, and relationships.  Love that doesn't exist in those things, at least not in it's purest form, which is how we need it.  No, the only way we can find love like that is in and through Christ. 


So guess what, I'm home!  I have finished my sophomore year of college and I am officially half way done with college.  So, since I am home, I have more time on my hands.  At least hopefully anyway.  Which means I will hopefully be updating mindless muses a little bit more frequently.  I have a ton of recipes and DIY projects that I want to try out, and they should end up on here, so keep your eyes peeled.   Right now though, I'm relaxing and obsessed with Lost, so give me some time.  :)
