"hard hard hard hard days. and everything is so good and everything is just changing and i know so much wonderful is ahead." Thankful for reminders like this through people I haven’t even met on some internet site. I could very much use prayers for peace and wisdom and the ability to rest in Christ’s presence because Micah and I broke up and it’s v complicated and Christ has been reminding me that I am His beloved the past few weeks and I think that prepared me a lot but I’m still not ready for things to be different in the way he wants them to be.
I will kiss you like forgiveness. You
will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms
will bandage and we will press promises
between us like flowers in a book.
I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat
on your skin. I will write novels to the scar
of your nose. I will write a dictionary
of all the words I have used trying
to describe the way it feels to have finally,
finally found you.
And I will not be afraid
of your scars.
I know sometimes
it’s still hard to let me see you
in all your cracked perfection,
but please know:
whether it’s the days you burn
more brilliant than the sun
or the nights you collapse into my lap
your body broken into a thousand questions,
you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
I will love you when you are a still day.
I will love you when you are a hurricane. Clementine von Radics, “Mouthful of Forevers” (via petrichour)
Loving sacrificially is hard.
if your boyfriend is your best friend, you’re doing it right.
if your boyfriend is your only friend, you’re doing it wrong.
