life more abundantly

Hello, my name is Claire. I am an eighteen year old introverted artist of sorts. Alive and well only by the grace of God. Ever so loved.

Okay, I’m really bad at letting this go, but I’m doing it.

I WILL BE OFF OF SOCIAL MEDIA FOR AN INDEFINITE PERIOD OF TIME.

I may pop back on occasionally, but in general, I am leaving Tumblr for a while. I love y’all, and I am always here if you need me! (thischickclaire@gmail.com) Thank you for being understanding and fantastic! :)

For your romantic cruise this evening, we will be dimming the cabin lights. However, if you would like some additional reading light, there is one above you. Be careful to push the right button. If you push the wrong one, you will be ejected. Now let’s get this Boeing going!

—the hilarious stewardess on one of my flights yesterday

Listening to French music while studying Latin vocabulary. I just noticed the irony.

I got home late last night and found that my mama made my favorite muffins and one of my favorite meals just for me. Isn’t that the sweetest?! She was already sleeping by then, and she got up early for work, so I get to see her this afternoon. I’m very excited.

[Posting a bit later] Flying into the sunset leaving my best friend behind in Mississippi. Hate goodbyes, love flying.

‘… I do not seek to escape death.’ — Acts 25:11
These words of Paul ought to remain true for all Christians. Our object on this earth and in this life is not to create a home here, but to draw through the Spirit as many as we might, that they might be saved from their sins as well.
When faced with death we ought not to shrink in fear, but to accept whatever fate our Lord has for us. He will not allow us to leave this land before our time. Let us therefore concentrate on the task at hand, and fear not for death, who comes only at the Lord’s bidding.

We gotta start teaching our daughters to be somebodies instead of somebody’s.
