O Sacred Head

O Sacred Head surrounded
By crown of piercing thorn!
O bleeding Head, so wounded, 
Reviled and put to scorn! 
Death’s pallid hue comes o’er Thee, 
The glow of life decays, 
Yet angel hosts adore Thee 
And tremble as they gaze. 

I see Thy strength and vigor 
All fading in the strife, 
And death, with cruel vigor, 
Bereaving Thee of life; 
O agony and dying! 
O love to sinners free! 
Jesus, all grace supplying, 
O turn Thy face on me! 

In this Thy bitter Passion, 
Good Shepherd, think of me, 
With Thy most sweet compassion, 
Unworthy though I be; 
Beneath Thy Cross abiding,
‘Forever would I rest, 
In Thy dear love confiding, 
And wilth Thy presence blest. 

———Saint Bernard of Clairvaux [1090-1153]

how comforting it is to know that when i am overwhelmed, God is not. when i am confused, he is clear and calm. when all my prayers are, “hey. i don’t even know what to pray so i’m just going to sit here with you for a while,” he is near.

that’s enough.

i think aggressively practicing self love is important, no matter where you are in life

if you’re single, you ought to dedicate time to finding out who you are and loving yourself

and if you’re in a relationship, you ought to dedicate time to finding out who you are and loving yourself

We remember Robin Williams, who was kind enough to let Josh share the comedy stage with him on The Crazy Ones. Simon Roberts, you’re one of a kind. (x, x)

  • i find it pretty fucking inconsiderate that my grandchildren haven’t used time travel to visit me.
  • and frankly, i’m a bit offended.
  • AM I NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU GRANDCHILDREN? 
  • WELL FUCK YOU 
  • MAYBE I WON’T EVEN HAVE KIDS AND YOU WON’T EXIST 
  • HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT

what if we have tho

what if we just didn’t know they were our grandkids

what if your best friend has to constantly remind themselves not to call you grandma/grandpa

Actors like Clint Eastwood have a kind of dynamic lethargy; they appear to do nothing, and they do everything.  They reduce everything to an absolute minimum.  For instance, he had perhaps a four-line speech, and he reduced it to four words.
