Shoot for the moon-if you miss, you still fall among the stars. Nilgiri mountains 

i looked up at the big, big starry sky
one simple silent night
underneath a canopy of glitter 
i breathed a prayer.
a simple silent prayer
that was meant for the only One 
i gazed in awe at the bright moon
one constant, shining moon
and this sensation of awe crept upon me 
i thought about it. 



if i, a mere mortal, could be loved by a everlasting Creator
what chances and amazing things could happen if i would choose them
instead of dwelling on the past
to focus on the future 
to believe in myself
instead of having a negative attitude
to know that only small minds talk about people
to see the silver lining in each overbearing cloud 
instead of downing myself for everyone else
to choose to be happy when things go wrong
to enjoy my life, whatever may happen
instead of living in a fear of what others may think
to know that i wasn't created to be average 
to believe that i am a daughter of the one true King.

and then i thought, why not?

  5. Ah, we are all princesses in God's Kingdom. Sometimes I find that hard to believe because I'm not exactly what one would call "princess material" but at least we are loved.

  7. That F. Scott Fitzgerald quote is lovely because we can be whoever we want to be. Only small minds talk about people, and I need to remember that.

    "what chances and amazing things could happen if i would choose them
    instead of dwelling on the past
    to focus on the future"
