stalnaka This kid & I will be saying goodbye to all social media until October 1, starting tomorrow. Recently, I've evaluated the amount of time I invest in all my social networks & I began to think of all the pros/cons. I love Instagram. I must admit, I'm an addict & because of that I've developed self-image issues. I've compared myself to other to often & envied the glorified insta lives of so many others. So I think it's time for to step back & take some time away. It will be a detox month spending more time with those I love most & more time with Jesus. So until October 1, this is farewell! 3w

stalnaka sweet summertime, you've been a roller coaster but i'm sitting here with this lovely view reminding myself that : people can always be forgiven, wounds can always be mended, & you can always have a happy ending if you find something worth fighting for. 2mon

stalnaka Flying is one of my favorite things. You can look down & see the diversity of nature & the veins of cities that look so quiet from 20,000 feet. It reminds you that everyone has a story. Everyone is living a life, just as you are. People are suffering from the same heartbreak as you. People are feeling the same joy as you. You aren't alone in your feelings. You aren't the first to feel them and you definitely aren't the last. Yes, that might humble you by coming to that realization, but it's liberating as well. People suffer, but things get better. We are all living proof. The world looks easy from the sky. It looks quiet & it puts into perspective how simple it all it. When you touch down you're drawn from your fantasy and tossed into reality. Remember the freedom you felt when you were flying. Remember the connection your felt with the rest of the world. You aren't alone. You'll never be alone. As I say this, my favorite quotation comes to mind... "Courage, dear heart." (C.S. Lewis) Engrave that upon your heart. The world is beautiful. We are all just people trying to find our place in the world. It's going to be ok. 2mon

stalnaka "If you went on a mission trip & came back not being able to post any cliché pictures, would you still go?" I post pictures not to boast the fact that I went out of the country to love on souls that need Christ in their lives & to work with weary hands. I don't post them to show that I went to an impoverished nation & held babies all day... I do it solely to show that these people: these men, women, & children impact me. They give me so much more than I could EVER give them. We may give them tangible things, like a new outhouse, a new pre-school, a new church building... But they, they fed me spiritually & mentally. They taught me more than I could ever teach them & for that I am forever grateful. 2mon
