when the weight drops off

my photo + please don’t pin
have you ever
just felt
and then stepped
and felt the wind
and suddenly
the weight
it’s flying
flying away
and you just
God lets us soar on wings like eagles.
feeling free,

loud minds + saying opposites

made by moi + please don’t pin
“how are you?”
i feel like i’m falling apart.
“what’s been going on?”
“nothing much.”
“everything ok?”
“everything’s great.”
everything’s horrible.

sometimes people
have the loudest minds
say one thing
and mean the opposite
they just don’t feel safe
telling what’s really
going on

you’re safe with God. talk to Him.

travel:(v.) make a journey, typically of some length or abroad.
take a globe
close your eyes
reach out
and pick a place
“let’s go
you ready?”

i stared out the window, a smile on my face, excitement in my mind, and hope in my heart. my mom leaned over the edge of the car’s seat, her face slightly perplexed.

“you know, we might not be able to get it today.”

i smiled. “that’s okay.”

“alright, but i just don’t want you to get your hopes too high.”

“i know we might not get it today,” i told her, “i know it might not be there, or something might happen, or we might not have room in the car. but i can always hope.”

she smiled at me. “yes - you can always hope.”
