ivans05 We often don't see the value of our lives until we decide to give a portion of our lives to someone else.

ivans05 Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ, the Saviour is born
Christ, the Saviour is born

Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Merry Christmas my friends!

ivans05 Identity From an early age I searched for my own identity. As a young adult in college I sought my identity through academics and extracurricular activities. (My identity was never intended to mirror a degree or a wealth generating career.) In summary all my efforts only left me empty. Now I come to understand if you don't know your creator you won't know the sole purpose of your existence. #humbled #inchrist #noedit 1mon

ivans05 This is my friend D and we both met at College. I don't remember how our paths crossed but all I know is our paths continue to crisscross. Whenever we connect we just pick up from where we left off, not skipping a beat. Here is a toast to good friends.#thankful 2mon

ivans05 Be still and silent this morning.
I woke up early this morning and read the latest news, combed through the bible and reflected in yesterday. Then I began to wonder what I should post.
We often want to fill silence with speech and thoughts. We want to be busy bodies but all for what purpose? Let stillness and silence be an opportunity for God to speak to you. You are truly and deeply loved.

ivans05 If you're broke and jobless and feel like you have nothing else to give to those around you.
I grew up poor and was ashamed of it. I remembered a time when love was almost an equivalent to Swahili, I didn't understand it, it made me feel uncomfortable, but I also had a deep desired to be loved. As an adult I desire to grow in a richness centered in love. It is impossible to understand true love without growing in a deeper relationship with the author of Love. Nobody has ever said I want to be poor in Love.

ivans05 Today was a good day. I am thankful for all my interactions. I had the opportunity to meet new faces, solidify old relationships, and develop new friendships.
We are made to be relational which means some relationships can't dive deep due to the fear that is attached to transparent relationships. Without transparent relationships we can find ourselves in a mess; all alone. Today my heart broke on so many levels, not because I was hurt but because I hurt for the broken. I'm looking forward to the day when there is no more sorrow and no more pain. Until that day comes; 1 Peter‬ ‭4‬:‭8‬.

ivans05 Happy Birthday to this stunning leader, Sean. For the longest time I called him David but everyone else called him Sean. (I know, very confusing.) He always seeking to become better at everything he does and sets realistic and attainable goals; he will eat and breath his current goals and ambitions. Sean desires to hike all of the #PCT. He is a great leader who loves God, his wife, and community. Seek him out and give him a hug and tell David Sean Haworth he is loved. @davidseanhaworth 2mon
