Anonymous asked: I'm obsessed with how perfect your answer was, but helloooo sass haha!
Anonymous asked: So uh... you posted an ellen video. Not that that means anything, does that mean you like gay people?
You’re right, that video must have meant nothing…to you. Because it was obviously about having a healthy lifestyle and a positive body image amidst the ridiculous pressure to be accepted by the shallow portion of society that thinks a human being is only worth what they weigh.
So, uh… not that sharing that video meant anything, let me address whether I “like gay people.” I guess I feel the same way towards gay people as I do cats—I like the ones that are nice to me, and I’m not so fond of the ones that are mean to me. But if you’d like me to take it a step further, let’s talk about the fact that I love homosexuals. I love people regardless of their sexual orientation, and let me clarify that whether I like or dislike them still has nothing to do with their sexual preference, but with their character. So, if you’d like to generalize a huge population—the answer is yes, I generally do like gay people as they are generally kind to me because I don’t excommunicate them like this idiotic CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch does towards women over a size 10. Case closed.
Ellen’s response to the ‘Abercrombi& Fitch’ statement.
You’ll need coffee shops and sunsets and road trips. Airplanes and passports and new songs and old songs, but people more than anything else. You will need other people and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living breathing screaming invitation to believe better things.

(if you’re seeing this on your dash, it’s part two and the first one can be found on my page.)
The verse is Psalm 90:12
“So teach us to number our days, that we may get a heart of wisdom.”
P.S. Sorry for the noise of my blinker. I guess I had to turn a lot haha.

So… hey. I think I’d like to share something. Sometimes when I drive, the Lord puts a verse on my heart and I talk out loud about it until I gain insight about its truth and in a sense, I preach to myself. There’s this verse—John 16:13 that says, “The Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth,” and I feel the weight of that verse when I speak aloud about the word and discuss the gospel with myself. My wicked heart is so starving of truth, yet at the same time, the truth is within me. Christ dwells in my heart and within my soul dwells his very Spirit, so when you combine that with my love for communicating, I wind up talking to myself. I was listening to one I recorded back in the fall and it really spoke to me so I think I’m going to share it in hopes that it will mean something to some of you as well. Plus, you can laugh at me when you hear my southern accent and you can laugh with me at the parts where I get intense haha.
The grace of God means something like: Here is your life. You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn’t have been complete without you. Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid. I am with you. Nothing can ever separate us. It’s for you I created the universe. I love you. There’s only one catch. Like any other gift, the gift of grace can be yours only if you’ll reach out and take it. Maybe being able to reach out and take it is a gift too.
You just don’t know how much I needed this. Not just vague fast bits of niceness, but genuine care and encouragement—that of course, I do not deserve, but receive with true gratitude. I’ll never get over the strange community of loving believers I have surrounding me on Tumblr, and this is the most special example I have to show. To everyone who extends kindness to me and takes the time to love me with their time and words, thank you. I cherish every word and thank God for the support I’ve been shown.
