My skirt's turned up but I don't care...

As spoken by Shu, in the prayer room.

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?"

"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Matthew 6:25-34

God desires to lead, to guide and to grow.
Don't worry, Hannah, You worry too much.

Just live, love and be, in Him.

So much.
Lets make this work.

I'm glad to be alive

Take advantage of the sunshine
There's no telling when the rain comes in.

Remind me that there are things I cannot control

Stand and face me, just incase you
Miss a chance now to embrace me
Keep on walking, holding hands now
Let's enjoy this dark and rainy night

That doesn't warrent despair, or an abdication of responsibility,

With you right by my side
Together the strain
And the wind and the rain
And the heartache and pain
Cos it's all just a waste of time

But rather, no wiser option then to kick back , relax and enjoy the taste.

How Beautiful.

"the tender eyes,
That choose to forgive and never despise"

Lord, make me pure and holy, ever dependent on you, and reliant on your grace.

-edit. Thursday. 6.05pm-

'No matter how scared I am, I know I'm safe tonight.'

Bah. Am I?

Land me like dynamite, please.

Deep breath. I can do this.


Hurts a lot.

It sits around and sees the other schools of thought yelling from behind each indivdual lense.
Then she peers carefully, and understands that she's behind her own lense.

No one can say that they know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
But one can always endeavour to understand.

Beautiful one.

I can't hack into your account. So i'm putting this up here.

I was in the WC in Regent college when it struck me: You have been singularly supportive of me. Since TKGS, it seems that with me, you have always been concerned about my well-being and happiness. Who I dated, what they did to me and who they were always incited either shared glee or ferocious protectivness. Yeah totally. I'll hold your hand. Chem class or no.

Bright are the stars that shine.

I don't have much to say. But silences and distance really don't matter.

"My face in thine eye, thine in mine appears,
And true plain hearts do in the faces rest"
The Good-morrow ~ Donne

Lord, capture me, and draw me in.

Today I re-learnt the virture of here and now, of catching the moment and savouring the sensation. I focused on being alive, on being frustrated with my term paper and allowing myself to fade into beer and pasta. I was sensitive to my needs and had a good 8 hour rest at night. and I intend on having another 8 tonight. I am interested with my area of study and am engaged with it personally, absorbing it into my life and being. I am breaking my walls and building relationships, being safe while being vulnerable, being loved and loving. I danced this evening, into endless blue eyes that reflected the ablilty to surmount the impossible. I surmounted the impossible. We went on a journey today.

"We'll need hope, and faith, and the goodness of grace.
We'll need you to let us go our way"
Go ~ Plumb

Lord, be here in the center of my life. Move powerfully through my being and spread out to the world around me. Inward, upward, outward. Bless my relationships and the work of my hands, that people would know that You are Lord. Let me rest in you. Amen.
