belles & bows

Southern born and southern bred in the land of Zelda and Tallulah. Fond of rocking chairs and front porches, sweet tea and magnolias, sunsets and sunrises, honey-soaked accents and southern hospitality. Caught somewhere between a love for small towns and an equal love for the Big City. Saved by an unfailing, amazing grace. Trying to share my love for each of these, one day at a time.

Don’t wage your Christian struggle with sermons and arguments, but with true love. When we argue, others react. When we love people, they are moved and we win them over. When we love we think that we offer something to others, but in reality we are the first to benefit.

—St. Porphyrios (via yesdarlingido)

Christ calls us to follow him regardless of the cost. He never promised that it would be easy. But ultimately, I have chosen Christ not because he takes my pain away but because he gives me strength to cope with that pain.
