The stars must think us mad! Because, we who were created in the image of the Creator, feel so alone. Do we not know that a star has never felt the warmth of another star? Yet, they continue to shine because they long to bring glory to God. All of creation looks at us, and they see how loved we are by the Creator, and they must wonder “Why do these souls feel so alone, when they have Him who is everything?”
Let us never forget that Christ came down in the form of man, because He chose to love us above all, because we were the ones who God made in His image, and said “They are very good.” and now that Christ died for us, God looks at us and calls us “beloved.”
When we give Jesus our absolute best—our time, talent and resources, it is truly an act of worship. We are saying with our actions, “God, You mean more to me than anything. Because You are so awesome, I want to give You everything that I am.” It pleases Him when we come to Him with this attitude. When we draw near to Him with an open and humble heart, He draws near to us. Remember to always give Him your best and watch Him open doors of blessing in every area of your life!
Hey look, Liam hoodies are now available in the store (after 85 years because I’m really behind in pretty much everything!)
Now try and win one because I feel bad for making everyone wait forever for these. I’m sorry I’m trash.
Also to note: I’m going to be at Dragon*Con this weekend onto Monday so I’m not going to be around much to field questions about this particular giveaway run. Also, it’s going to run a little bit longer than usual for that reason. Please be patient with me :(

Life can be magical when you have a clear set of personal rules to live by. Here are my top 10 picks for living a happy, abundant life. (I hope they inspire you to create your own set of rules for living life to its fullest.)
Life Rule #1: Look for the good side of everything
Whether it’s your partner, your brother, your pet, your home or work, try placing the majority of your attention on the things you really love and appreciate, rather than looking for the things you find tiresome or irritating.
Life Rule #2: Do what you love and love what you do.
Try, as much as possible, to live a life that is not tethered too tightly to the actions and opinions of others. Do what you love and love what you do.
Life Rule#3: Appreciate Where You Are Right Now
As you work your way toward your ultimate goals and dreams, make an intentional effort to recognize that where you stand in the present moment is as much a gift as where you are going. Every day, look for at least one thing about your life RIGHT NOW that satisfies you.
Life Rule #4: Have Some Fun
Laugh, dance, do something silly. Watch a funny movie, go for a swim, have lobster for dinner. Whatever you consider fun, pick something, and Just Do It.
Life Rule #5: Say What You Need to Say
Don’t hold back…if you want to say, “I love you,” say it. If you need to say, “You hurt me,” say that too.
Life Rule #6: Surround Yourself With People You Love
Make a list of the people who make you feel safe, inspired, happy, and motivated. Keep them close and let them know, on a regular basis, how much they mean to you.
Life Rule #7: Forget About The Money (If just for a little while)
Sure, money makes the world go ‘round, BUT if everything you do is monetarily based, you’re destined to miss a lot of life on the way to your “riches.” Make a habit of doing at least one thing every day that doesn’t cost you a penny or make you a dime.
Life Rule #8: Focus on what is not temporary
Contrary to popular belief, life is not about struggle, conflict and endurance. Often, simply deciding that you will look the other way, turn the other cheek, or smile and say “no problem,” can spell the difference between misery and happiness. It’s always your choice.
Life Rule #9: Think about the needs of others
Neither everything is about us, you have to decide be consumed by the needs of others too.
Life Rule #10: Put God above all else
God is our base. Your word, your love and your mighty hand can do everything. Our faith moves mountains and in his way and only in his way we will find happiness.
