It’s easy to take the people closest to us for granted and assume they know how we feel about them. You might think, “Oh, I don’t need to say anything. They know how I love them.” Or, “She knows I think she is beautiful…He knows I think he’s great.” But they are the ones who need your affirmation the most! A blessing is not a blessing until it is spoken.
"If you expect the world to be fair with you because you are fair, you’re fooling yourself. That’s like expecting the lion not to eat you because you didn’t eat him."(via thecolorgrapher)
"It’s not just that you do the things that God forbids. The saddest part about it is that you chose those things over God."Francis Chan, When Sin Looks More Enjoyable Than God (via littlethingsaboutgod)
