This is Jackie, 19. Livin and lovin life! I like to blog nature, innovation, design, vintage, romance, positivity, femininity, and writing. I am part Parisian, part mountaineer, and I'm a big fan of the color blue and puns. My favorite mood is when everything is suddenly, quietly beautiful. have fun browsing :)
Not with a doubtful but a sure consciousness, O Lord, do I love Thee. Thou didst strike on my heart with Thy word and I loved Thee…. But what do I love when I love Thee? Not the beauty of bodies nor the loveliness of seasons, nor the radiance of the light around us, so gladsome to our eyes, nor the sweet melodies of songs of every kind, nor the fragrance of flowers and ointments and spices, nor manna and honey, nor limbs delectable for fleshly embraces. I do not love these things when I love my God.
And yet I love a light and a voice and a fragrance and a food and an embrace when I love my God, who is a light, a voice, a fragrance, a food, and an embrace to my inner man…. This it is that I love when I love my God.
