“And now I’m looking at you,” he said, “and you’re asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has. I never dared give much of myself to anyone before, but since the first time I saw you, I have belonged to you completely.” —

This is the sweetest thing I’ve ever read.
“If you really want to get to know someone, or if you want to get to know them better, nothing takes the place of a good old-fashioned coffee date, awkward silences, bad jokes, annoying habits and physical chemistry. Relationships were never meant to be neat but that, I think, is what makes them beautiful.” —Isa Garcia (via followandreblog)
“Forgiveness is not a one-time event. You don’t just lob the F-bomb and then back away, as if you’ll never have to deal with it ever again. If the gospel is important to you, if you want to be free, if you want intimacy with Jesus, if you don’t want anything that happened to you to have power over you, then you must forgive as many times as it takes. Seventy times seven. EVERY DAY. Four o’ clock. Five o’ clock. You might have to release them multiple times.” —Isa Garcia’s Message this week (from Ptr. Steven Furtick)
