He loved her, he loved her, and until he’d loved her she had never minded being alone.
— Truman Capote (via dira)
Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart.
Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so.
One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow,
or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want,
more than all the world, your return.
— Mary Jean Iron
Keep your mind continually turned toward God
so that your every work and all your activities,
physical and mental, may be prayers.
Take one step at a time, every step under Divine warrant and direction. Ever plan for yourself in simple dependence on God. It is nothing less than self-idolatry to conceive that we can carry on even the ordinary matters of the day without his counsel. He loves to be consulted. – Charles Bridge
