For The Girls Without A Group Or Clique

One time I called my mom in tears as I blurted out these words: "I'M LIKE A GALLON OF MILK WITH AN EXPIRATION DATE!"

After a sweet chuckle on the other line and a few minutes of sobbing, I was able to explain my discouragement with friendships.

I felt like as soon as I'd get close to a friend, we'd grow apart. Or she'd find other, cooler, more fun friends and suddenly vibes were weird and I couldn't figure out if something was wrong with me or if I did something to screw up another friendship. I'd look online and see pictures of cliques and feel even more isolated.

I'd go to parties, beebop to the music and watch groups of girls take selfies. Or I'd be asked to take a picture of them only to see it on Facebook the next day WITHOUT a photo cred.

Ugh. Rude, right?

Okay, I'm being dramatic now, but I have a point.

There have been times in my life that I'd try to bend and contort myself in whatever way just to fit into a group. And it never really seemed to work.

So if you are struggling to feel like you belong or if you're having trouble with female friendships, I just want to remind you that God didn't design you the way He did just for you to bend and contort His design to fit into some group or clique it wasn't designed to be a part of. And you're not weird or strange and there's nothing wrong with you if you grow apart from women you care about for awhile.

Because you know what? All things are redeemable. And at the end of the day, He delivers who you need, right when you need them, to stand by your side. Some of the girls I thought I'd grown apart from years ago were the same girls that threw on a blush dress and served me wholeheartedly on my wedding day. And often, those aren't friendships you can fake. They're disorganized and crazy and a little bit messy --- but they're real. And they take time to build.

Find Jordan on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

So keep on keepin' on. Because the moment you realize that God has given you the greatest Friend in His Son, you'll see that you're NOT a gallon of milk, but a gal loved by the Messiah. And you'll find that no good thing ever really does expire.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
