les chiens

These little dogs remind me of a little song we used to sing as children in church:

"Jesus loves the little children,
all the children of the world:
red and yellow, black and white
-they are precious in His sight:
Jesus loves the little children of the world!"

Despite what the devil tells us through the popular value system of the world, we are not all supposed to be alike.  Jesus loves you.  Be who the Lord made you to be and never again compare yourself to anybody else.

Love, Jade

By Fear or By Love

I was once told that one's behavior is motivated either by fear or by love.  
I think there is truth in that.

Friendship is a sheltering tree.

-Samuel Taylor Coleridge


The exact goal of a bully is to manipulate you into feeling intimidated so that they can get what they want out of you. 
Do not help them to achieve this goal. 
No one controls your emotions but you. 
Eleanor Roosevelt wrote that no one can make you feel inferior without you giving them the permission to do so.  Don't do so.

A great deal of sanity is gained
when one stops trying to make sense
out of nonsensical behavior.

-illustration from:  "Songs from Alice in wonderland and Through the looking-glass" (1921) Lewis Carroll, Lucy Etheldred Broadwood, and Charles Folkard


When someone is condescending towards you,
it is their mistake in thinking
that their assessment of you is in any way
who you are.

Tonight, I am grateful for:

-every person who has defended the rights and freedoms that I enjoy as a citizen of the United States. If any veteran reads this: Thank you, thank you, thank you.

-my good friend Nikolas P. gifting me 3 wonderful dark chocolate bars from a chocolate shop he visited in Noe Valley in San Francisco. One bar is fruity, one is earthy, and one is astringent and one of the most bizarre tastes I've ever experienced.

-food, food, food; for having much good food to eat. Thank You, God.

"Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends." -John 15:13


I am grateful for:

-meeting my new therapist yesterday. We seem like a potentially good team...

-the little wooden incense holder (possibly from India) that I found in a box of junk near the freebox area yesterday morning. I have been eyeing some similarly shaped ceramic ones that I've no business spending money on...

-the beauty that I personally find in patterned fabrics juxtaposed against one another; in an ensemble of clothing, in an interior...
