i like to think that hogwarts has a really strong wi-fi signal, but like the stair cases, it keeps moving around. just muggleborns, chillin on their laptops all suddenly stand up together, dash madly to a different corner of the school, and sit down wordlessly like some kind of mind hive flock of pigeons while the purebloods are just so confused

v. important question: should I dress up as undercover CA:TWS Natasha Romanoff, a Ravenclaw student, or Dana Scully for this Halloween? (I’m most of a foot too tall for Scully…)

Spiritual friendship is eagerly helping one another know, serve, love, and resemble God in deeper and deeper ways.

Very often (nearly always, I’m afraid) when I come to church my feelings are uppermost in my mind. This is natural. We are human, we are “selves,” and it takes no effort at all to feel. But worship is not feeling. Worship is not an experience. Worship is an act, and this takes discipline. We are to worship “in spirit and in truth.” Never mind about the feelings. We are to worship in spite of them. Finding myself scattered in all directions and in need of corralling like so many skittish calves, I kneel before the service begins and ask to be delivered from a vague preoccupation with myself and my own concerns and to be turned, during this short hour, to God.

my favourite relationships ★ simon and river (firefly)

i got a few letters at first but then i didn’t hear for months. finally i got a letter that made no sense. she talked about things that never happened, jokes that we never.. it was code. it just said… “they’re hurting us. get me out.
