the beauty of grace



I'm Toni, 23, UK. I am Roman Catholic and proud of it :) but that doesn't mean I think Mary is God or worship saints - I love God with all my heart and He is first and foremost. Nothing in this life is a coincidence, God has a plan - trust Him. I am partial to the odd owl, and some Harry Potter.
Ask a question? or just say hi! :)

Sorry I’ve not posted in a while. I’ve been focusing on this! (And I’ve been working a lot.) I’ve lost 2 stone in 8 weeks and I’ve developed muscles I’ve never had before :)

Why is the Nobel Prize in Literature almost always given to a novelist, never a scientist? Why should we prefer our literature to be about things that didn’t happen? Wouldn’t, say, Steven Pinker be a good candidate for the literature prize?

Richard Dawkins in this interview [New York Times]

Why should we prefer our food to be made out of things that aren’t computers. Isn’t it about time we began eating computers? Why can’t more dogs talk? And of the dogs that do talk, why are so many of them fictional? Shouldn’t, say, Steven Pinker’s dog begin talking? Throw off the yoke of superstition.

Furthermore, why can’t I have a car that has wheels that roll sideways? And why can’t Iron Man beat Goku? What if, say, Steven Pinker designed Tony Stark’s armor? What if I could fly? What if teeth were made of pineapples? Makes you think.

Reblog if you do too. Just to prove that it is more normal than what people actually think.

The truth is that the more intimately you know someone, the more clearly you’ll see their flaws. That’s just the way it is. This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendships don’t last. You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they’re out of money or under pressure or hungry, for goodness’ sake. Love is something different. Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart. Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.

friendly reminder that giving smokers shit is the same as fat shaming (◡‿◡✿)

friendly reminder that second-hand smoking damages the people around you by making them inhale carbon monoxide and carcinogenic chemical compounds linked to diseases such as lung cancer and childhood leukaemia and can cause pregnant women to lose their baby whereas second-hand eating isn’t even a thing (◡‿◡✿)

crusadermaximus:

UK parliament voted no to war in Syria, the first no vote on military action since 1782 (according to Drudge).

Let me be clear: This is the first war in the last 120 years where the mainstream media has been unable to whip the public into a war frenzy. The powers that be are terrified by this and…

…why does my brain like to punish me occasionally? I compulsively look at and find things/people that really upset me.

simplylaurel: What has happened???

Thanks to my amazing and generous sister, I am getting my teeth fixed. Properly. I’m going to a private, cosmetic dentist and I’ll be able to smile properly :)

(Going to my own dentist tomorrow for some good old pain)
