Exactly what I needed to hear…thanks for Your provision as ever, Lord.
On this Father’s Day I want to honour and give due praise to a man who has taught me so much over the years:
The importance of being able to laugh at yourself, of having time for others and a willingness to help wherever possible. The necessity of loving who you are and sticking to what you believe, not to mention an incomprehensibly vast wealth of “Dad jokes”…
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, the lesson that nickname-ing your son ‘Spud’ and, when questioned, telling him it’s because he’s got “a head like a potato” is a sign of true love that is widely misunderstood…particularly by the child in question!
I love you, Dad.
A dear Tumblr friend is actually staying in my town for a few days, so we’re going to hang out (for the first time in ever) and she’ll see what an utter dork I am.
Yay for such lovely opportunities!
Ahhhhhh thanks so much - I was just sat here thinking to myself “I’m already like a stick insect; but what I would reaaaaaaally love is to lose so much weight that I become airbourne in the gentlest breeze and find myself being carted all over the world”.
Thank you for your message, that is so thoughtful of you - it’s encouraging to know that people sometimes notice a lack of presence as much as presence itself!
I have been fairly tied up, yes; work and other commitments mainly, with the odd battle thrown in. I hope to make a more meaningful contribution to the Tumblr world soon…other people start disappearing, haha!
But no, in all seriousness, it doesn’t bother me if people unfollow because I’m not glued to this site 24/7 - the social politics of Tumblr has never held me captive.. I do hope to have time for more substantial posts though.
Anyway, thanks again for enquiring! I hope you are being blessed and growing!
Bring on the social mayhem!

Find me if you dare…and let the adventure begin!
Say hi! You can find me here -
I won’t bite…unless you specifically request and/or are made of pizza.
I am currently killing a few hours in London before my train back home, but thank you nonetheless, benevolent blind citizen of Earth.
I apologise; apparently I imagined the word “shared” entirely!
Firstly, allow me to humbly suggest that perhaps you can spend time talking this over with God, particularly if you feel ashamed of him. It can be hard when faced with someone’s past to remember our basic call to love as Christ did, but pursuit of that attitude needs to be a priority.
With regards to actually ending it, be honest but sensitive. He deserves the truth but also your understanding and support in prayer if nothing else. After all, the kiss you shared may have complicated things but it takes two people to make it happen (which I’m assuming from your use of “shared”).
Yourself or others may disagree, but these are my thoughts, so I hope it can be of help; if not, I pray you find a solution that will bring peaceful resolution for you both!
I will try my best to be of help - fire away! :)
It pains me to see it rife even in the Church - too many of us waste our words on trivial talk, arguments, and belittling those around us in order to better our own mood; as if our verbal scorn somehow levels the playing field and elevates us to previously unattainable levels of righteousness.
Lord, grant me the wisdom to employ my words for the construction and encouragement of all whom I encounter, instead of tearing them down.
What on earth am I even doing with my life?
If you have a spare moment and could shoot up a prayer for me I would be oh so grateful.
I’m an orchestration of over-thought tonight.
Thank You that You bring perfect peace, Father.
Stronger than mountains,
Deeper than oceans,
Reaches to me.
I did almost nothing productive yesterday besides play guitar, go to rehearsals, play Minecraft and snapchat (snapshaunski7) people…
Yesterday was a good day.
