7 Reasons To Go To Paris With Your Best Friend Over A Boy

Paris, one of the most romantic cities in the world has always been at the top of my bucket list. For spring break this year I decided to go to Paris with one of my best friends. Let's be real guys romantic vacations with your significant other come with certain pressures and expectations. Going on trips with your best friends only entails that you will have a wild time even if you get lost in the streets of Paris. In my opinion, the best way to explore a city is to run around with your best friend, possibly making a fool of yourself but still looking good while doing it.

1. Her Suitcase Is Your Suitcase Too

When you to go to a place like Paris you have to leave half your suitcase empty for shopping. So if you forgot a shirt for going out she probably has one. You can't steal your boyfriend's shirt to go out in but you can steal your best friends.

2. They Will Actually Tell You What You Look Good In

There's no need to be nice when it's with your best friend. If something doesn't look good it just doesn't look good. She will always give you her honest opinion. So you don't end up buying leather pants 3 pants sizes too small...

3. They Know Your Angles

No more asking your boyfriend or strangers to take pictures for you and receiving blurry of hideous photos. Your best friend should know your angles and you know theirs. So don't be shy.. strike a pose.

4. Just Because Your Not With a Boy Doesn't Mean You Cant Have a Romantic Vaca

No, it's not weird if you go on a wine tour and your the only pair that isn't a couple there. Drink your wine and eat your cheese in front of the Eiffel Tower. Go to a romantic candlelit dinner with wine and laugh at all the awkward couples around you. If people don't mistake you for a couple you are simply doing the trip wrong.

5. She Actually Wants To Shop With You

Im sure we have all walked into a clothing store and seen the corner for boyfriends, husbands or children. Yes, this is the corner where the uninterested members of the party go to sit as the others shop. As I'm sure to use heard Paris is the fashion capital of the world and shopping should be a priority... right up there with eating. Your best friend will spend hours shopping with you no complaints.

6. You'll Always Have Someone To Get Drunk at Every Meal With

As they say its never too early to start and it's five o'clock somewhere. Your best friend would never judge you for starting the day off right with mimosas and ending it with wine and maybe a couple shots to tequila.. but who's counting. What's a vacation without a bender through the streets of Paris?

7. You Can Eat Your Way Through Paris Without Caring About The Food Baby That Comes After

Whats a vacation to Europe without some bread, croissants and delicious pastries? If you don't go up a pant size by the end of the week did you even go on vacation? Go to Paris with your best friend who will encourage you to eat that last piece of bread even though you have never been fuller in your life. When in Paris.. am I right?

8. You Don't Have to Share Your Food

There's that moment during a meal when you are really enjoying your food it's so good that you start to think about how it will soon be over because your plate is starting to clear. At that moment you see your boyfriend's fork lean onto your plate and take some of your food.

You can't yell at him because you know he would let you have some of his but you just not want it. Go to Paris with your best friend and you can order as much food as you want with no expectation of sharing.. on either end.

The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
