To My Future Husband:
tomyfuturespouse: I can’t wait to see what God has planned for us. You know who you are.
Does God exist? (you have to read this!)
A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed. As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about so many things and various subjects. They eventually touched on the subject of God.
Barber: I don't believe that God exists.
Customer: Why do you say that?
Barber: Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn’t exist. Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain. I can’t imagine a loving God who would allow all of these things.
The customer thought for a moment, but didn’t respond because he didn’t want to start an argument. The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop. Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard. The customer turned back and entered the barber shop again.
Customer: You know what? Barbers don't exist.
Barber: How can you say that? I am here. I am a barber, and I just worked on you!
Customer: No! Barbers don’t exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside.
Barber: Ah, but barbers DO exist! That’s what happens when people do not come to me.
Customer: Exactly! That’s the point! God, too, DOES exist! That’s what happens when people do not go to Him and don’t look to Him for help. That’s why there’s so much pain and suffering in the world.
Why lust, when you can love? →
ubicaritas: Think of your beloved. Think of the person you have felt most attracted to. Oftentimes, we don’t explore our feelings enough. We brush over them, simply grasping for the superficial. When asked about why you feel so strongly for the person you feel most attracted to, quick, sugar-coated answers…
I just had my audition for Ave Maria University today. I really, really want to go to school here. As horrifying as it will be, I think this would make my spiritual growth develop by leaps and bounds. Any prayers would be greatly appreciated. Also, usually when people go around humming it drives me nuts. But my roommate here has one of the most beautiful voices I’ve ever heard. I really...
ubicaritas: We can all live without sex, but we cannot live without love. As my priest likes to say, “People never die from lack of sex, but they die from lack of intimacy all the time.”

ubicaritas: If you can see them at Eucharistic Adoration with you, chances are that’s a good indicator
God's last name is not damn it.
This is lame, but you love me. →
