Favorite Quote:
Every dream has a tomorrow, and every tomorrow has a dream.

Every morning when I wake up from a nightmare,

is when I feel more grateful than ever

about how blessed I am. 

And it’s when I am more than sure,

God indeed cares for us, 

much more than we could ever imagine.


He is there in the first beam of sunlight that came through my curtains;

He is there among the pleasant chirps of birds in early summer; 

He is there in the fresh smell of dirt after a night of heavy rain.

I take a deep breath and embrace the world with my open arms,

and I feel God’s hug.

Every evening when I’m in my prayers,

I talk to God,

about my anxiety and fear

that I my grades might drop after a quiz

or that I might lose the ones I love someday.

I close my eyes and breathe deeply again,

I tell myself that He’ll answer in his unique way —

silent but strong.

I then open my eyes

and discover

that He is there listening carefully

in the sweet smell of freshly baked cookies,

and in the flames burning vibrantly in the fireplace on a snowy winter evening.

My chaotic heart is finally able to calm

in God’s guaranteed love.

Trust God, and always let him know about your worries as well as your gratefulness, because he is there listening, and he'll answer.
