happy easter yall

everywhere we look, it's all crazy, it's all false, it's all a dream, it's alright

spring is among us and it's a great thing. i am super excited for the warmer weather and the beauty that comes with it. sadly this easter doesn't seem any different than other easters but i know one thing is constant and that is that God is love and love is real; He showed His love by sending His son, Jesus, to die for each one of us. i am thankful for this love that i am receiving on a daily basis, even though i do not deserve it. there are many things i do not understand or fathom and one is why God loves us even though we repeatedly sin; i am thankful for this unconditional love and only through His grace will i even come close to overcoming it. "in everywhere we look, in everywhere we look, Allah, Allah, Allah"

i pray that everyday i show God's love to others and i hope to be continually used as a vessel. in the darkness a light shines and that light is God. i hope to shine that light in the dark. enjoy this song by mewithoutYou. it is something that we need to be daily reminded of.

*last note: one of my only real memories that stands out during easter is when my mom would go around the house saying: "He is risen. He is risen indeed." etc. i know she'll be doing the same tomorrow just somewhere else, somewhere a lot cooler than here.

peace & patience please.
