hi jasmine! lol
how was your week? do you like to read for fun? if so, any suggestions? and you are a Christian right?
Hello! My week has been great. Pretty hectic with school and everything, but it was nice. I do enjoy reading, I don’t have much time for it, but I know almost anything by Jodi Picoult is amazing! Yes, I am Christian. I dont like being labeled by my religion but rather by my relationship with God. <3 How about you? :D
I never understood the whole point of dating. I understand when two people truly like and care about eachother and want to be together, dating is fine. But others just go around dating people they dont even know, like, or care about. They do it just for the sake of it, and their relationships only last a few weeks if they’re lucky. If people know it’s not going to last, why do they date? I dont like dating, its a hobby.
I’ve never had a boyfriend.
I get so much crap from people trying to convince to me get a boyfriend, from people bugging me to date their friends, etc.
Everyone always asks me why I won’t date anyone..so I just really want to write down all my reasons that have been piling up.
Well, to begin: I dont just date random people. im waiting for someone i actually care about and like enough, and so far, i havent found anyone. but im not searching, or waiting, when the time comes, everything will fall into place. theres no rush. I dont like anyone right now and im not gonna force myself to just so that I can say i have a boyfriend (who i dont even like). I dont date for the heck of it. Im not gonna make myself like someone, when that person comes along who i actually really like for who he is, then ill do something about it. but i believe God has my life planned out, and when he wants that right guy to come into my life, he will. besides, just dating a bunch of guys in high school who you have no feelings for, in my opinion, is pointless and a waste of time.
I think im weird for never really liking anyone. I may thinks guys are cute, funny, and all the other characteristics girls want, but there is no one i’ve ever really wanted to be with.
I always hear of girls who want a guy so badly, and when they get him, they stop. I always thought that was kind of selfish, until I started doing it. Not really trying to get a guy, just whenever I find out someone likes me, I distance myself. I completely reject them, which I hate doing but I just cant get myself to like them. I want the feelings to come naturally.
A major part of it I think as well, is that.. I’m afraid of getting hurt. Now that its been so long and i’ve never had a boyfriend, a wall has formed around my heart, blocking out anyone who tries to get in. So if i have the slightest feeling that a relationship won’t last, I wont give it a try. It’s like i’ve convinced myself that I need incessant reassurance that everything will be okay. People say you have to date around to find out what you want, but i’m not sure if I believe that. I’m so confused. Im afraid if I allow someone to come into my heart, I’ll fall in love, to face that only in the end, they take my heart and shread it into pieces. I don’t want to get hurt.
Well, im not just going to sit here and complain about all of the things I have to do, because we all have stuff to do, and if we all complained, what kind of world would we be living in? We all have hardships, and complaining is no solution. Instead, I want to reach out to all of you reading this and let you know that instead of being sad about life, school, and all the stressful things that come along with them, be positive.
Wake up tomorrow morning and just hop out of bed in the best mood ever! Have the biggest smile on your face! Be thankful for having another day to live, instead of hitting your snooze button a million times and dreading every moment of school, make it beautiful. People dont take all the wonderful things into consideration. We should be thankful for the privilege of getting an education, being healthy, having food on the table, clothing to wear, people who love us.. Be thankful for everything. <3
I know we all have our bad days. But instead of hating them, why don’t we make the best of them? It’s the little things that make me happy, like making people smile, packing my favorite snack, blasting the music on the way to school, dressing comfy, etc. These just get me into the greatest mood.
So lets turn those frowns upside down. heehee. :D
Well, I got to go do some homework now. lol. Then working at halloween fun night later! My friends and I are dressing up as nerds. (:
I hope everyone is having a great day. God bless you all!
She jumped up as soon as she saw the surgeon come out of the operating room. She said: 'How is my little boy? Is he going to be all right? When can I see him?' The surgeon said, 'I'm sorry. We did all we could, but your boy didn't make it.' Sally said, 'Why do little children get cancer? Doesn't God care any more? Where were you, God, when my son needed you?' The surgeon asked, 'Would you like some time alone with your son? One of the nurses will be out in a few minutes, before he's transported to the university.' Sally asked the nurse to stay with her while she said good bye to son. She ran her fingers lovingly through his thick red curly hair. 'Would you like a lock of his hair?' the nurse asked. Sally nodded yes. The nurse cut a lock of the boy's hair, put it in a plastic bag and handed it to Sally. The mother said, 'It was Jimmy's idea to donate his body to the University for Study. He said it might help somebody else. 'I said no at first, but Jimmy said, 'Mom, I won't be using it after I die. Maybe it will help some other little boy spend one more day with his Mom.' She went on, 'My Jimmy had a heart of gold. Always thinking of someone else. Always wanting to help others if he could.' Sally walked out of Children's Mercy Hospital for the last time, after spending most of the last six months there. She put the bag with Jimmy's belongings on the seat beside her in the car. The drive home was difficult. It was even harder to enter the empty house. She carried Jimmy's belongings, and the plastic bag with the lock of his hair to her son's room. She started placing the model cars and other personal things back in his room exactly where he had always kept them She lay down across his bed and, hugging his pillow, cried herself to sleep. It was around midnight when Sally awoke. Lying beside her on the bed was a folded letter. The letter said: 'Dear Mom, I know you're going to miss me; but don't think that I will ever forget you, or stop loving you, just 'cause I'm not around to say 'I Love You'. I will always love you, Mom, even more with each day.. Someday we will see each other again. Until then, if you want to adopt a little boy so you won't be so lonely, that's okay with me. He can have my room and old stuff to play with. But, if you decide to get a girl instead, she probably wouldn't like the same things us boys do. You'll have to buy her dolls and stuff girls like, you know. Don't be sad thinking about me. This really is a neat place. Grandma and Grandpa met me as soon as I got here and showed me around some, but it will take a long time to see everything. The angels are so cool. I love to watch them fly. And, you know what? Jesus doesn't look like any of his pictures. Yet, when I saw Him, I knew it was Him. Jesus himself took me to see GOD! And guess what, Mom? I got to sit on God's knee and talk to Him, like I was somebody important. That's when I told Him that I wanted to write you a letter, to tell you good bye and everything. But I already knew that wasn't allowed. Well, you know what Mom? God handed me some paper and His own perso nal pen to write you this letter I think Gabriel is the name of the angel who is going to drop this letter off to you. God said for me to give you the answer to one of the questions you asked Him 'where was He when I needed him?' 'God said He was in the same place with me, as when His son Jesus was on the cross. He was right there, as He always is with all His children. Oh, by the way, Mom, no one else can see what I've written except you. To everyone else this is just a blank piece of paper. Isn't that cool? I have to give God His pen back now He needs it to write some more names in the Book of Life. Tonight I get to sit at the table with Jesus for supper. I'm sure the food will be great. Oh, I almost forgot to tell you. I don't hurt anymore the cancer is all gone.. I'm glad because I couldn't stand that pain anymore and God couldn't stand to see me hurt so much, either. That's when He sent The Angel of Mercy to come get me. The Angel said I was a Special Delivery! How about that? Signed with Love from God, Jesus & Me. (Let's see Satan stop this one.) Take 60 seconds and repost this, within the hour, you will have caused a multitude of believers to pray to God for each other. Then sit back and feel the Holy Spirit work in your life for doing what you know God loves 'When you're down to nothing, God is up to something.'
Hello :) I just wanted to thank you for reading and for finding me worthy of following. It's so flattering and I just wanted to go ahead and introduce myself and let you know that I do go through and actually care about my followers. Thank you for relating to me as well. We may just know each other better than most people in our real lives know us just from that one post. Even though, for me, it's not about the followers or about how many notes I get, it's all about being myself and through my words, while I help myself, also helping others.
I'm Gracie btw! I just wanted to introduce myself because I feel it's the right thing to do. <3 Hope all is well! Do not hesitate to send a message my way shall you ever need anything! And I'm sorry about the wait. I usually do so right away but everything has been so hectic lately.
Hi! :) I’m Jasmine! Thank you for taking the time to write that, its so wonderful of you. Of course you’re worthy of following, your blog is so amazing and inspiring. I love that we can relate to eachother and that we can all truly express ourselves and get to know one another as well. I hope you’re doing great as well, and don’t be sorry! <3
You are beautiful. Even when you feel ugly or depressed or guilty or ashamed, there is an inner spark in you which is light. This light is your beauty. This light is your reflection of God. You are a child of God, thus you are beautiful.
“Jesus never talked to a prostitute because he didn’t see a prostitute. He just saw a child of God he was madly in love with. When we have new eyes, we can look into the eyes of those we don’t even like and see the One we love. We can see God’s image in everyone we encounter. As Henri Nouwen puts it, ‘In the face of the oppressed I recognize my own face, and in the hands of the oppressor I recognize my own hands. Their flesh is my flesh, their blood is my blood, their pain is my pain, their smile is my smile.’ We are made of the same dust. We cry the same tears. No one is beyond redemption. And we are free to imagine a revolution that sets both the oppressed and the oppressors free.”—(via changingperspective)
Girls are always waiting around waiting for the perfect guy, going around just generalizing all guys as jerks who have one thing in mind. Well yeah a lot of guys may be like that, but they really can’t help it. But there are also a lot of wonderful guys out there, and I hate when girls get these amazing guys and then treat them like they don’t mean anything. They always say they deserve better, but the truth is, those boys deserve way better. Guys have feelings just like girls. I know i’m not a guy or anything, lol, and trust me I generalized and at a time just never thought guys were good enough or worth it and all they did was break our hearts, but now i’ve realized otherwise. If you take the time to talk to a guy one on one and discuss feelings, you’ll see that once guys really love a girl, she becomes their everything and its no game to play with love.
Music is seriously my life! Its my inspiration and it helps me through so much. I love that in any point in life, there is a song that we can all relate to.

Please listen to some. (:

I am a pacifist. I am completely against any type of violence. I never understood the reason for war, and if someone could explain it to me, i’m willing to listen. In my opinion, war is a waste of time, money, and most importantly, lives. War is a battle for land which God has blessed us with to share and live upon peacefully and lovingly. Just because people may disagree on a topic, it doesn’t give them the right to drag the innocent people of their countries into it. Why can’t we just talk it out and reach a ground of agreement?
I had to write a paragraph in english today about one thing that you wouldnt mind going to jail for if it means proving your point and standing up for what you believe. This is what I chose.
