KINDRED SPIRITS

Ive always been familiar with the term "Kindred spirits" as im sure most you have as well, but its only been more recently that I've actually began to think about what that phrase really means. 
kin·dred spir·it
ˈkindrid ˈspirit/
noun
plural noun: kindred spirits

There are moments in everyone's life I think when they realize what a kindred spirit is and how much we need them.& honestly NOTHING can take the place of them.

for me my kindred spirits are my cousins. 
 in case you haven't noticed I am very close with them. I practically do everything with them (and when i mean them i mean like 10 different cousins cause i come from a huge fam & have like 70 cousins. so when i say cousins i don't mean like 2 or three people) haha just want on such a long ramble but oh well....  
So heres the thing i used to think that you needed tonsssss of friends& stuff but throughout my teen years I've kind of learned that it doesn't matter how many or few friends you have. Honestly i would rather have JUST ONE real friend than lots of acquaintances.
cause that one real friend is your kindred Spirit. they get you. they are YOUR SOUL FRIENDS the ones you stay up into the wee hours of the morning talking about the most random things, they see you at your worst & still love you, 

What being A Kindred Spirits means to me.

 laughing with me & not being afraid to be weird or silly with me in public.

 Caring for you, going out of their way to make you feel loved or special.

•Praying with you! this is an important one for me. I have some wonderful memories of deep heartfelt prayers with them & honestly its one of the most beautiful

going on adventures with you.. (like to crazy places such as Africa) 

• sticking with you through the rough times. Obviously friendships aren't always perfect, we all go through rough patches & hard times. BUT a steadfast and true friend is there for the long haul. come rain or sun.

• being yourself. being able to say all the random and odd things that pop into your head


  there are SO many personality types in the world & i'm always amazed at how sometimes you and your pall are like legit total opposites  but there's this AMAZING bond between the two of you & like you see all these strengths that you may not have yourself, in your friend which is really cool. And im just like WOW God you are so amazing cause He knew that our friendship needed the different personalities to balance each other out & create a fantastic kindred spiritness. 

SO don't worry to much if you and your friend are opposites, its probably a good thing XD

So today i want to remember just how important and wonderful the people in my life are & what a blessing they are to me. Also i don't want to take for granted their friendships & the love & grace they have showed to me.

Thoughts on this topic?? How do you relate to your kindred spirit friends? Are you opposite or alike + favorite friendship song

SITTING, WAITING, HOPING , LOVING 





I SIT, AND I WAIT, AND I HOPE, AND I LOVE.

 or at least i try to. Jesus never threw himself at us Jesus whispers "come" in hopes we will listen. He doesnt try to make us. He doesn't push us. but He simply says my love is here and you are welcome to it. 
 its no secret my love for Jesus runs deep but its not always that way. 
I HAVE  HARD TIMES
we all do, some worse than others. so how do you reach those people? how do you reach someone who is so far away from the truth? sometimes i think theres no way i can, which leads to a lack of love. 
does that make sense? that when i dont think there is any way i can help this person understand Jesus its almost like i forget to love. which is so twisted and messed up. in these times i ask Jesus to awaken my heart. because there is so much more i know i can be if i just tell our heart to wake up. were called to love like Jesus, can we do that? 
when Jesus said come, i'm here, i love you he didn't try to persuade us to follow his example, he simply set the example and said its here if you want it. that's how i hope to be.
 i hope one day i can love like this. like Jesus. i don't want to believe someone cant find Jesus, because if i can fall deeper and deeper into Jesus every single day, why cant someone else. through this journey of finding who i am and who i want to be I've learned something, this way, this path to Jesus we talk about finding, if you believe its real and its true you will never find it. i have confidence that i can be the one to show someone the truth but i know in doing that i have to absolutely believe in it. so, ill sit and ill wait, ill hope and ill love

THOUGHTS ON TOPIC?
ANYONE ELSE GET WHERE IM COMING FROM LOL
ALSO GUYYYYSSSSS ITS LIKE SPRING AND IM TOTALLY HAPPY ABOUT THAT

THE BOOKS READ





ALL THINGS NEW
 BY LYNN AUSTIN 
Description 
fiction/historical/christian 
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It's the end of the Civil War, and Josephine, her now widowed Mother, Eugenia, and her sister return to their plantation in Virginia. But life is different now. Many of the women are now widowed. But the biggest change in the South is that the slaves who made life on the plantation so easy were now "free"....but where would they go & how could they survive without no education or experience outside the direction of their Master? Lizzie and her husband Otis decided to stay & serve Eugenia's family but Eugenia had to learn a different set of rules. This book is a good history lesson of life right after the War and the attitude changes that had to take place in order for there to be Reconstruction.

This is my second time reading this book. I have so much love for Lynn Austin. Her books are very historically accurate and depict the time period quite well! its always a pleasure to read one of her books. XD soooo if your looking for a book to buy........


FAVE THING ABOUT APRIL + HAS IT BEEN COLD OR WARM WHERE YOU LIVE.
