You Are A Valuable Spec Of Dust

We are so, so small, but we are so, so loved.

You Are A Valuable Spec Of Dust

The diameter of the universe is ninety-two billion light years. One light year is almost six trillion miles. To put these numbers in perspective, the earth's diameter is less than eight thousand miles in diameter. There's also speculation that multiple universes exist. If you're a visual person, take a look at this picture.

Every minute detail of everything in this universe is incredibly intricate and diverse. Did you know that there are over sixty thousand species of trees? I couldn't picture that many different types of trees if I tried! But the Lord had a plan and the Lord wanted beauty on this Earth. Think of all the things that go unnoticed in God's masterpiece. The sunsets and the oceans get all the credit (and rightfully so). From the aroma of flowers to the nutrients of the plants to the dew on the morning grass, every detail was taken into consideration.

The fact that the universe is immensely ginormous and almost unfathomably large is not intended to demean your importance at all. Think about it. The same Lord who created this entire realm that we live in created those tiny features on you. From the creases that your eyes make when you smile to that random birthmark to the freckles on your face, the creator of all things made you that unique and special. He knitted you in your mother's womb, breathed air into your lungs, and delicately created you in his perfect image.

So, the next time you take a walk outside, observe the little details. Remember the plan the Lord has for every creature, big or small. Matthew 6:26 says, "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?" You are loved, cared for, sought out, and provided for. You are one of a kind.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
