"We sat alongside each other without speaking for a while. He’s the type of person you can do that with. It wasn’t an embarrassing silence, just a comfortable one. As if we both respected each other’s private thoughts."

If he doesn’t fall on his knees in prayer,
he shouldn’t have the chance to fall to one knee with a ring."

I want to cure mental illness and in Jesus name, I will.

I want to build a blanket fort within their minds
and cover every thought in golden fairy lights.
I want to light a trail of paper lanterns to eliminate
every patch of darkness and every space of fear.
I want to plaster the walls in pages of the bible
and paint colorful patterns all over the ceiling.
I want there to be mirrors that only reflect
how they are made in Gods perfect image.
I want there to be swords of the spirit
to slay every negative thought and post-it notes
stuck in random places as a reminder that self harm
is not the way to destroy the enemies plans of destruction.
I want to blast psalms, hymns and spiritual songs
so loud that it echoes all around in every room.
I want to build a church in there
and I want everyday to be Sunday.
I want to write love is patient and love is kind,
in pink and yellow chalk upon the ground.

I want to invite angels to make themselves at home,
pop the jug on for a cuppa and have a sleepover;
so that person never feels alone or afraid in their thoughts.
I want to have an army of guardian angels all around
evenly camped out in white dome tents in a circle,
protecting from anything negative that wants to creep in.
I want to build a campfire in the center and have angels
singing praises to God while strumming acoustic guitars.
I want there to be angels dancing through the streets,
sprinkling glitter and confetti of joy all through the valley.
I want there to be giggles of laughter utterly contagious.
I want there to be glorious sunshine in neon yellow and
showers of rain, creating rainbows of ‘red and yellow
and pink and green, orange and purple and blue’
just like the song they taught me at kindergarten.
I want it to be light and dreamy and filled with peace.

I want there to be glasses full of happy juice
and plates full of spiritually nourishing food.
I want their to be butterflies fluttering all around,
for they are like a caterpillar destined for more.
I want there to be fruits of the spirit growing on trees
and I want to plant gardens of beautiful flowers
and water the seeds and see them flourish.
I want there to be lots and lots of daisy patches,
so the angels can make daisy chains and link them
around each others wrists, like friendship bracelets
and lots of rose gardens, so that everyone gets a rose
on valentines day. I want their every thought to be like
a big teddy bear cuddle, a warm embrace of love.
I want to create heaven within the minds of those
who don’t feel anything or feel everything at once.

For every prayer that I pray and every encouraging word
that I write and confess, I am little bit by bit, removing all
of the old furniture from their mind and filling it with all of
the above. My positivity and compassion, my unconditional
love towards another and my whole heart-ed care, is going to
rip out the old floorboards and carpets and strip down the old
wallpaper and give it an Extreme Makeover Mind Edition.

I want to cure mental illness and in Jesus name, I will.

"Today, I’d like to remind you to take everything one step at a time. Display an authentic iteration of yourself proudly and gracefully to the world, and then, do not worry. Whatever is meant to be, will be, at it’s good and appointed time. Release control, pain, and anger. Allow life to happen, let God be God, and lastly, enjoy the ride."
