hello chile!

Chile is amazing.
I can´t explain why I love hearing a different language, like spanish, being spoken all the time. It makes me so happy. The different sayings, the spanish slang, its such a welcomed change.
So there´s the change in language that I love and there´s also the amazing hot weather that is completely welcomed as well. But what I´ve been enjoying the most is going out and talking with my cousin Walter. The last time I came we were all about 13-14 so were shy little kids, but now that we´re grown up it feels like this bond is being formed. I´ve lived my whole life with my family far away, unlike many people who have their family fairly close to Vancouver so getting to know my cousin and actually feeling like family makes me feel all warm inside for lack of a better way of explaining it. I can´t wait to start getting to know my other cousins better as well, I just haven´t seen them yet but its bound to happen.
We´re about to head out for lunch now with my aunt, my cousin and Walter. LATER.

No sigas a un amor que te hizo sufrir, un amor que un día se olvidó de ti y lo peor, un amor que un día se fue de ti. No confíes en alguien que te dijo 'te lo juro', 'que lloró', y luego te reemplazó sin ningún dolor.

> > Recuerda: 'quien se fue sin ser echado, vuelve sin ser llamado!

Translation: Don't follow a love that made you suffer, a love that one day forgot about you and worse, a love that one day left you. Don't trust in someone who said " I swear" and later replaced you easily.

Remember, he who is made to leave, comes back without being called.

there are no words <3

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew* you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."
- Jer 1:5
There are no words to express the love I have for this new little human being. When I hear her cry, my heart cries, because she's just so small and helpless, the desire to do something, anything, so comfort her pure little heart, is overwhelming.

Thankfully, she doesnt cry very often. Only when she needs something and not even then. She full out poohed and didnt cry. The only way we knew is because it went through her blanket, LOL! She fusses a little when she's moved. She scrunches her face and makes little tiny noises, as though she were preparing to let out one big cry...but then, she either goes back to sleep, or just keeps looking around. AMAZING.

I always want to be holding her.

I've gotten so use to picking her up and placing her down, its awesome.

AND HER SKIN! So soft!!

I can't believe that something so small, something I can hold using one arm, will over time grow into someone as big as me. I'd like to see someone hold me with one arm! Its an amazing, beautiful process that I'm so thankful I get to be a part of.

Christina: There's a club. A dead dads club and you cant be in it until you're in it. You could try to understand, you sympathize, but until you feel that dad died when i was nine. George, I'm really sorry you had to join the club.

George: I-I, don't know how to exist in world where my dad doesn't.

Christina: Yeah... that never really changes...

Rom 6:10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.

2Cr 1:9 Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.

2Cr 2:16 To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life. And who is equal to such a task?

Remember where you're going
remember where you're from

Remember theres a battle here
whos will is to be won

When the sun does not feel like shinning

and the rain is all you see

Remember there are those who will help you off your knees.

Tomorrow feels so far away

a second turned to years
Locked in a room thats slowly

being filled with all my fears

Hold me now, dont let me go, dont let me slip away
remember that you're needed here in every single way.

I haven't written a poem in so long and lately I've just been listening to def poetry jam and then reading some others people poems made me miss it.

But really, I was just trying to express myself in a way I havent for awhile.

hopeless romantic pt 2

I was re-reading a book I have and I found a line I absolutely loved.

" 'They took Henry Percy from Anne,'I said. 'And she was as much married as us.'
'He was a young lad,' William said. 'No man comes between me and mine.' "
