i'll be alright, just not tonight.
Music is good.
If you have built castles in the air,
your work need not be lost; that is where they should be.
Now put the foundations under them.
We talk a lot in Social Psychology about the difference between "opposites attract" and "birds of a feather flock together" when it comes to romance and attraction. Research shows that we tend to like those most similar to us. But when it really comes down to it, I think perhaps what we need is the person who can balance us.
"What I need to survive is not Gale's fire, kindled with rage and hatred. I have plenty of fire myself. What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again. And only Peeta can give me that."
"When a girl covers herself up, she reveals more of herself to us, because you reveal to us that there's more to you girls than just your bodies."
For out of the overflow of his mouth his heart speaks. Luke 6:45I need words because they are the concrete manifestation of feelings, thoughts, and actions. In words lie the secret to intangible motives, ideas, and desires. The ability to communicate through written and spoken words is perhaps the major advantage of the human race- and it is something not to be taken lightly. I believe that we have this gift because we need it. Because, as humans, we need to understand things on multiple levels. Words allow us to convey not just the imperfection that is our actions, but the pure intent behind what we do. With words, we are able to explain just what someone means to us, even when we fall short in our ability to show them perfectly. It is said that words mean nothing if they aren't tied to actions. And for me, actions mean very little without the reassuring words that accompany and explain them. Because unless you give me a good reason not to, I believe words.
The Lord giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint..."waiting on the Lord" is a special invitation to become an active, consecrated disciple of Christ. It isn't to sit back passively and just wait on your hands. I was moved to make changes in my daily pattern so I could "wait" with much more intense spiritual initiative.Over the course of the evening I had the opportunity to serve a number of individuals in various ways. It was amazing how wonderful it felt to help others, even though I'm fairly certain I benefited infinitely more.
