There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near…when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.
“Don’t surrender your loneliness
Let it cut more deep.
Let it ferment and season you
As few human
Or divine ingredients can.
Something missing in my heart tonight
Has made my eyes so soft,
My need of God
clear.”—Shams al-Din Hafiz (via autumnfringes)
“To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.”—Gilbert K Chesterton (via kissedbysadness) (via notamutedoll)
Today, I taught my nephew to roar like a dinosaur. My family went to a nice restaurant for lunch and he and I had a dinosaur fight for an hour while the waitstaff and other diners laughed and took pictures. I'm 20, he's 7 months. He won. MLIA.
