The burden I carry the tattoo beneath this one was mentally insane. One point in my life I really thought you were the one, but it was because of our fate we didn’t tied the knot. You left me in pain and with a permanent scar in my life. Every tattoo removal session when the laser burns through my skin I thought of you. Every time I looked in the mirror and see your initial it reminded of us. Through all this I don’t blame you, but myself because I never want you to be the reason we didn’t work out. During the darkest time in my life I created a new future, new life and new me. Suicide was always on my mind, however because of one word HOPE. It kept me living, moving on, going forward. I had so much hope whether it was good or bad it kept me from suiciding. Hope for a better future, life and most importantly love. Today I have this tattoo replace the old one. A meaning of life. Kev cia siab. #love#life#suicide#motivation#hope#hmongtattoo#pray

The word that comes to me with this piece is hope. A very simple and delicate piece with clean lines. The lines/pattern came to me in the moment.. Intuitively created, spirit inspired art. Each piece is unique, hand made and lovingly created. Because my creations are hand made they are imperfectly perfect.
Each piece is created and imbued with a vibration & vision of love, peace, happiness and harmony. Some pieces are also imbued with the vibration of abundance and health. Each piece is unique and has its own energy signature. Some pieces also come with an intuitive message.
The will of the wearer always predominates over any energy imbued within the pieces.
To clean simply wipe over with a soft damp cloth ( or soft dry cloth ). Most of the pieces are varnished, resined or housed in glass to protect from wear and tear. The pieces are splash proof, however I would say they are not waterproof. Do not shower or swim in them.
I had the thought as I was posting this that the word “altitude” just requires one letter switch! I took this Saturday from the peak of a small mountain we hiked. The desert is SO beautiful to me!
As I travel back home today, I’m reminded to be patient. With full flights, everyone hovers anxiously waiting for their zone to be called. We all have to fight for the same overhead space to avoid waiting at baggage claim when you just want to get home. There are a lot of things about travel that are inconvenient. Just remember today that everyone is human and so are you. Bend a little even at the moments where your patience has run thin. If you show grace and kindness to others, it will come back to you. Fill the day with LATITUDE.
“Edep Ya Hu”
Tasavvuf literatüründe “Edeb ya hu” ifadesi edebin önemini vurgulamak ve muhatabı edebe çağırmak için kullanılan bir deyimdir. Edep insanı utanılacak durumlardan koruyan sağlam bir irade ve vicdan duygusudur. Edep, zahir ve batın terbiyesi sayesinde kişinin kendisini bilmesi, haddi aşmamasıdır. Edebin bir zahirî olanı bir de batınî olanı vardır. Zahirî olanı, ameli riya ve münafıklıktan korumaktır; batınî olanı ise, kalplerdeki şehvet, itiraz ve irade zaafı gibi olumsuzlukları temizlemektir. Mevlana, insan olmanın yolunun edepten geçtiğini belirtir. Mesnevi’sinde şöyle der: “Ey Müslüman! Edep nedir, dersen, bil ki edep, edepsizlerin her işine ve kabalıklarına tahammüldür.” Ona göre varlık âleminde insan ve şeytandan başka her şey, edebe riayet etmekte ve kâinatın düzeni bu sayede devam etmektedir.
Dear @julesfalkhunter , here is this months postcard, on the theme of travel. This is a photograph of a photograph from 2010. I traveled overseas for the first time, went on my own across Europe and was able to hang out with my friend Mary in Paris and Berlin. At the time she was living in Dublin, but came across to Europe for a few extended weekends. I met an amazing man in New York, who I corresponded with since. And of course, I was younger and thinner. Mary is now living back here after living in Dublin for five years and things are blossoming with the New York man. He is coming over here to visit soon! I guess it is true that you never know where your travels may lead you to. Looking forward to your postcard and then us starting our year long theme of seasons! Xxx matthew.
“I told her baby run away from me cuz ill probably break your heart and I don’t really wanna start right now. ‘Cause I done fixed way too women, the relationship be ending and the crazy fucking parts like “how?” I done took care of all their children and the ones that said they didn’t then at least i always taught em how to smile and now I’m the only one thats needing healing because I’m numb to all my feelings always thought they be the ones to stick around. My head is in a fog my knees are in the dirt i always question god why me for all the hurt? He told me cuz I’m strong thats the furthest thing from wrong and I’m giving y’all the game guess I’m needed on this earth. I aint really want the fame or the chains just to change how they living cuz my queens aint believe in they worth. and my kings doing worse. theres a liquor store right up on the corner grab a 40 when they leaving out from church. and that won’t be the first. We used to pick seeds out of cotton best believe aint no seeds in this weed thats dispersed then the cops come and seize all our work now we back out to robbing rent needs on the first. Imma breathe til it hurts. The devil can’t kill me motherfucker i done gave up everything to the sleeves on my shirt imma ease into peace but don’t feed me no percs.” #dmvmac#dmv#mac#Lyrical#rapper#dc#dcrap#md#mdrap#bars#flow#underground#hiphop#beats#producers#lyricist#poet#poem#moco#rap#rapper#respect#pain#stugglerap#real#Hope#instarap#freestyle#RhythmandFlows
Not a very good photo the lil buggers wouldn’t stop moving!! These are my two babies who will be with me in January! I’ve named one of them shadow but can’t think of a name for the other! Their both boys! ❤️ I’ve been so lonely so I think it will be good company for me! I came home to my flat and was like “I’m so excited to tell..” them I realised I had no one to tell about the kittens. I have no one 😞 #cat#kitten#love#hope#recovery#depression#depressed#alone
Such an emotional & moving experience. To have walked near the sight where Jesus was Crusified, beaten & Humiliated . ALL FOR LOVE ❤ FOR YOU AND I. Death could not over take him . On the 3rd day he was risen just as scripture says. .
John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
I have nothing to lose if I choose to follow and Believe in him because his word is GOOD . ETERNITY TO GAIN 👸
But if I choose to not believe I dont want to imagine what eternity has for me after death . If life on earth is hard and evil I can't fathom what lies after death for those that want nothing to do with the creator.
Everything in life has a Consequence 🙏
Have ur consequences made you a happier & Joyful person lately? Are you satisfied with what life u have chosen. Are you Full or do you feel empty ? .
But he said to me,
"MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR YOU ,FOR MY POWER IS MADE PERFECT IN WEAKNESS "
2nd Corinthian 12:9 .
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
PHILIPPIANS 4:6 .
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
MATHEW 11:28-30 .
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
Tomorrow isn't Granted 🙏
Who else battles with a failure type mindset with themselves?I used to let this mindset keep me so down in the past.I’ve always been so quick to disqualify myself. I still struggle with this mindset,but now I don’t let it keep me down and stuck like it used to because I’ve found a new hope in God.But this mindset,when you let it overcome you..when you are quick to quit..it can cause you to never come into a life that God has for you.I was battling this mindset again hard the other day..to the point God lead me back to read my own stuff to remind me He is bigger. So I felt it appropriate to reshare .If you are someone who struggles with this like me...This is for you ❤️ :Getting back up used to be such a huge struggle for me in the past..After a fall,I would just cry to God and be like “what’s the point? I go after you so hard just to fall so hard over and over again.”I felt so hopeless at times...Like a lost cause.I don’t know about y’all,but when I fall I feel like I fall HARD.The best picture I can paint of how I feel when I fall....Think of a toddler walking hand in hand with their dad.Then that moment they pull away from their dad to step in a different direction other than where he is leading them.. they fall face first on the concrete.. Messy, bloody, scraped up face and all.. LOL THAT’S ME and God. That’s really how I feel about it.And spiritually, that’s pretty much what happens. . And when you fall,the devil sneaks in to overwhelm you with shame,humiliation,insecurities, hopelessness,remorse to try to keep you down.He wants you too ashamed to get back up.He wants you to feel like getting back up and trying to walk the right path is hopeless for you.But let me tell you.. the only reason we don’t make it to our blessings and come into the life God has for us is IF WE STAY DOWN.No matter how many times you fall,if you keep getting back up to head in the right direction you STILL MAKE IT TO THE OTHER SIDE..Whenever you fall,instead of staying down call out to God for help and reach up!Take His hand and let Him help you up.Let Him lead you.No matter how far you’ve fallen DON’T GIVE UP!You can still come into the life God has for you. just GET BACK UP! #hope
I don’t know about you, but it seems like when I’m going through something big in my life, I always seem to get the same message over and over in different forms... anywhere from our sermon at church, to my devotions, song lyrics, or something someone says to me. I love how consistent the Lord is in reminding me of His truth and love in my life, and the constant reminder that He is the one that is ultimately in control over my life. ❤️
I know that I’m not the only one going through something, so I hope that if you’re in a place of uncertainty, fear, hopelessness, sickness, anxiety, etc... that you can find that hope, find the joy despite the pain, remember His love and know that there is nothing too great for Him to conquer. 💕
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:2-4
Nome da "pintura": Corpos ao léu .
"A vida é um entregar o corpo ao tempo
Acabamos sendo então a própria morte em vida
Me sinto morte agora.
às vezes escolho esse lado
E deixo ele tomar minha percepção
Se me sinto vida
Deixo a palavra tomar a ideia da morte
Aí que encontro Deus
E é aí que encontro o infinito
E a junção das coisas que parecem opostas
e coexistem bem.
a morte não é uma porta
parece mais um buraco de agulha
A morte sou eu virando raio através de um buraco de agulha
Sem novela mexicana
Talvez eu vire só memória
Na cabeça das pessoas
E ainda que essa memória do mundo seja varrida por uma amnésia
talvez pedras ainda se lembrem das minhas passadas
Ou quem sabe o rodo dá pia
Quem sabe o rodo da pia e a pia se lembrem de mim"
