Agape Life

Pennsylvania beauty

"Agape doesn't love somebody because they're worthy.
Agape makes them worthy by the strength and power of its love.
Agape doesn't love somebody because they're beautiful.
Agape loves in such a way that it makes them beautiful."
Rob Bell

With that quote in mind, I'd like to say a few things. First, I love that my God has the ability to make me beautiful without having anything to do with my physical appearance. I love that lately, I've come to understand and accept myself on a lot of different levels. The concept of being comfortable in my own skin is attainable. I like who I am and who I am becoming.

Along with that, I also have understood how to think more of others. The fact that I think more highly of myself has enabled me to have a deeper rooted love for humanity. I want so much for others to understand they have value.

Unconditional love, Agape, is amazing. It's really remarkable that this love has no boundaries. It has no agenda. It does not love because of anything. I want to live this way. I want to create and give and have relationships and have no strings attached. This kind of love is authentic. Life is way too short to not live this way.

Nathan's Birthday (better late than never)

My wonderful husband's birthday was about a month ago... I know, I'm not the best on timing when it comes to blogging. None the less, here it is!

Turning 21 is pretty great, except when your significant other can't do anything with you... I feel so lame not being able to go out with Nathan. He will enjoy my birthday much more, that way we can both celebrate! Here are some picture of Nathan's birthday celebration...

Happy Birthday Miss Taylor!

I made these shoes and dress for a friend of ours this past week. I must say, the gifts I make are not only for the people I give them to, but also for me! I LOVE creating things and I LOVE knowing others enjoy them. It's just a beautiful thing! Not to mention, this child I gave this adorable outfit to is going to look fabulous in it! She is SO stinkin' adorable in every way! Happy first birthday Taylor!
