Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany’s (via erraticintrovert)
Never gets old
‘Gods at War’ is a very intellectual and eye-opening book. Kyle Idleman addresses what he says is not an issue, but the issue. He argues that we, in this modern day society, face some of the largest forms of idolatry yet. We think that idolatry is strictly an old testament issue but today we face the gods of sex, entertainment, money, power, etc. God is not in a hierarchy to compete against these other gods. He takes precedence, he is I Am.
I love his analogies, his real-life examples, his comical footnotes, and the barcodes for songs that you can scan easily on your iPhone and take a listen to. His insights are beautiful. They cause an uncomfortable discrepancy that I need in my life to realize that all the symptoms of what I do really stem from my heart and which god is winning. I would recommend this book and indeed have recommended it to others because it was an amazing read!
I received a free copy of this book from BookSneeze in exchange for my honest review of the book.
The longest embrace, time stands still to watch us too. Because together, we are beautiful, pale and freckled, brave and intrigued, curious and adventurous. You make me feel at home.

John Steinbeck, Winter of Our Discontent (via girlwithoutwings)
We all carry these things inside that no one else can see.
They hold us down like anchors. They drown us out at sea.
All on you. And it’s days like these I truly believe I’m not capable of loving at all.
I was holding you tightly, we were sprawled out on my princess bedspread, eating snacks and catching up on our latest TV series. Not a care in the world. Then I thought about it, I thought about the possibility that I might not hold you like that again. I thought about not being able to be lazy with you, run for a sundae, and make bets with our Skipbo deck. I thought about it all ending, up in the air, with you so far away. I thought about not seeing you again, not loving you again. Not like that. Then I shrugged it off, it seemed an impossibility.
Look at me now.
