"You will burn and you will burn out; you will be healed and come back again."
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov (via resolutewoman)
"True friendship resists time, distance and silence."
Isabel Allende (via cageofstars)
The people God put in your life are not there by accident. God put you with them on purpose. Don’t take them for granted.
"Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all – look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love." — Zooey Deschanel
7 Characteristics of a Godly Woman
By Joyce Meyer
A godly woman desires to receive a vision from God that will give her a glimpse into her future.
A godly woman has courage to be herself in all situations. She never compromises her godly values and teachings to fit in with her surroundings. She is faithful to God at all times.
A godly woman’s strength is demonstrated during times of difficult tests. When things in life seem heavy to bear or people don’t understand how she can maintain joy and peace in God, she confesses that the “joy of the Lord is my strength”.
A godly woman is bold in her approach to fulfilling the will of God in her life. She is not offensive as to hurt others feelings but she is not afraid to do or go where God commands her to go. Her boldness rises when others may have a draw back spirit or are afraid of what others may think of them.
A godly woman is convinced that God cannot fail. She seeks Him and goes to Him in every situation in her life because she believes without a doubt that God is on her side, she has victory in every area of her life and that the schemes of the devil will not prosper.
A Godly woman trusts in God’s word. Through prayer she is sure that God is always involved in her affairs.
A Godly woman must understand and know her purpose from God. She has spent time in prayer and studying God’s word to know what God has deemed for her corporately and individually.Join me on facebook @
I am still far from being a Godly woman. :(
"Pain is a by-product of life. That’s the truth. Life sometimes sucks. That’s true for everyone. But if you don’t face the pain and the suck, you don’t ever get the other things either. Laughter. Joy. Love. Pain passes, but those things are worth fighting for. Worth dying for."
Vignette by Jim Butcher (via navillusnyylamme)
"You have to protect yourself from sadness. Sadness is very close to hate. Let me tell you this. This is the thing I learned. If you take in somene else’s poison- thinking you can cure them by sharing it- you will instead store it within you."
Michael Ondaatje, Caravaggio speaking to Hana in The English Patient (pg. 45)
"Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place."
Kurt Vonnegut (via daxxxx)
