I always joke that my name is “French Anne” because of the “Le” part
I looked up the origin of my name. Turns out it actually is French.
Comparing yourself to others is an act of violence against your authentic self.Iyanla Vanzant (via faz-sonhar)
"Here’s the deal: over the years, I’ve heard too many women say men are dogs, all guys cheat, never trust a man, boys are dumb, etc. Quite frankly, I am sick of hearing it, and I get so mad each time I hear a sister say that. But, how can I blame them if the last three guys they dated were cheaters or hurt them?
Guys, if you’re going to be a dog, date one. Otherwise, get your act together. Because of some foolish guys who have no desire to be holy and who are all about pleasing themselves, there is a large group of men and women who are being robbed of their vocation. Listen up bro: don’t mess it up for everyone else, and don’t mess it up for yourself.
Let me tell you something about myself: I was a player, and as a result, many of the girls I dated in the past don’t know the Lord. In fact, some ended up in abusive relationships, and others are afraid to share their feelings with any guy, whether it be a priest or their fathers. Because of the choices I’ve made, I have literally pulled souls away from the love of God, His love poured out on the cross for us all. That is the biggest crime a man can commit. Don’t be mistaken, I’ve repented, I’ve gone to confession, and I’ve even called each and every one of those girls to apologize. However, my actions in the past still have a negative effect. Because of my actions, these girls may still be unable to trust any man, including God the Father. I have a wife, a daughter, nieces, a sister, and a sister-in-law. I have a whole bunch of cousins and female friends, all who I love dearly, and it would kill me to see them hurt in this way.
Men, it’s time to man up! Before you date just for fun or try to be a player, remember that that girl is someone’s sister, niece, cousin, or daughter, and she could possibly be a future wife and mother. Most importantly, she is a daughter of God. So gentlemen, let’s commit to actually being gentlemen. Before you date someone, make the decision to treat her with the honor and respect she deserves.”
Certain people are in our lives for certain times for certain reasons. Not everyone is meant to be a lifelong friend; otherwise those lifelong friendships wouldn’t be so special.Courtney Kissinger
Praise God for the monthly “female pains.”
Most people focus on the struggles, and overlook the joy of this situation. They’re reminders that we are capable of bearing life! =) We get to participate in the miracle of creation, the process of love becoming flesh.
It’s okay. Eventually, they all remember its value and worth - once they look into the eyes of their newborn.
Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam!
