Friendship Series #2: Forever Is No Such Thing
During my growing up years, there was a specific term I used for a particular kind of friend that I had in certain seasons of my life. However, there was this nagging doubt in the back of my mind every time I used it that – someday – It would cease to be tr...

Thank you for sharing your heart in this post, Jas. xx :) I know that in my 20 years I have 'gone through' more friends I care to count... but learning this: "_we can be reassured that if we are striving to live a life that honours God, and are in obedience to what His will is for us, He will bless every encounter and every friendship with some good, even if it takes us until eternity to see exactly what it was_"
although hard, frustrating, painful (to the point of recognizing it in a broken engagement), makes every friendship worth it. When Jesus is the Ultimate Friend, our expectations we have in friends whilst on earth, will not extend past seeing those friendships as temporary blessings that you can invest into (and hopefully learn from, depending on the basis of the friendship). Of course this stands differently in a marriage relationship, in which that relationship is for life.

It's up! The first part of my intrepid friendship series is now live on the blog. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I look at some Christians and can't understand the way they treat people... And when I question them, I get insulted. The rest of their image can seem so godly, but when I wear the wrong end of the stick, I question... I wonder, do I do the same; do I treat people disrespectfully and unkindly? If I do, I hope my siblings in Christ are bold enough to tell me so in love... #wonderingifImseeingthings

I have to wonder if there aren't religious bots out there posing as end times doom and gloom maniacs with heretical philosophy on the internet. Surely some of these people can't be real.

"You can't have real friends if no one knows who you really are."
"It's the people who aren't afraid to be real and talk about real stuff, and actually open up to people and be honest about who they are."
Nailed it, guys. Actually goes along with a lot of things I've been thinking about lately, and a blog article I wrote recently. Really enjoyed this, thankyou so much for sharing. :)

#Jasmines30DayMusicChallenge , Day 01 - Your favourite song.

I have many favourite songs, but if I had to pick one song to listen to for the rest of my life, it'd probably be this one.

God . people . music . words . life . laughter .
Hi there. I am a Christian homeschool grad passionately following Christ through this thing they call life. I am the somewhat eccentric eldest of seven kids in an amazing family that lives on 15 acres of Australian turf in the country. My loves are that of people, music, and words. I believe God finished everything at the cross, and it is now up to us to live out of that completed work: in victory, health, provision, and the gifts of the Spirit. 

"So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility esteem others higher than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others." - Phil. 2:1-4

You've been invited to a fancy ball but the only thing you have to wear is an orange woolly jumper. What shoes do you wear? 

I would wear no shoes, because I would have traded them all in for a fancier dress that was long enough to cover my bare feet!
