Anonymous said: As a Christian woman, have you ever thought to go out and actually help other people? I mean, sitting around waiting for a husband sounds fun and all but is that really going to make you a better person/christian or change the world in a positive way? I'm saying this because your self righteousness is absolutely cringe worthy. Writing on a blog about your beliefs and sitting in a building on Sundays worshipping God is just surface Christianity. And hey, maybe if you get out there and volunteer

First of all, this paragraph has all the implications that you actually know me. In which case I would hope to receive this kind of message without anonymity, but alright.
I’m not self righteous; I’ve been given grace so…yeah, I don’t need that. I don’t think I’m perfect by any means and I certainly have made plenty of mistakes and have plenty of shortcomings.

"Writing on a blog about your beliefs" …1 I think maybe 2% of my posts have anything to do with my "beliefs" and 2 it’s my blog, it can say whatever I want it to; no one is forcing you or anyone else to read it.

"Sitting in a building on Sundays worshipping God is just surface Christianity" …I’m actually hitting my palm to my face. I worship God more than just on Sundays (oh and I’m standing not sitting).

And about helping others, volunteering and “making the world a better place”…I’d like to know who you are to make such assumptions about my life because you quite obviously don’t know enough. I don’t want to justify myself to an anonymous poster via tumblr, but I do what I can to be a light.

"Sitting around waiting for a husband" is a good point too though. Maybe you’d still cringe if you actually knew me, but you obviously don’t. I think we’re all probably pretty cringe-worthy in some way or another.

Leave my “blog” alone. I hardly use it for anything anyways. Get real and contact me without a facade if you have such profound things to say to me.

I hope to have land someday where I can build a one room cabin to just chill. No baño.

i think you’ll have a good thing when you’re ready for one. and if you’re never ready, you can’t expect to have a good thing. and if you blame your lack of a good thing on your un-readiness, you should think about getting ready. good things don’t wait around; you have to go get them usually. sometimes obtaining a good thing means you have to sacrifice something else to get it. sometimes you have to change something about yourself before you can have something good. sometimes you walk away from a good thing because you don’t understand just how good it really is. if you don’t think you deserve good things, think again; everyone deserves good things. grace. mercy. selah.
