Reasons to Live While the World Burns…

Sunrises. Memories you have yet to make. People you have yet to meet. Vinyl records. Laughing with loved ones. Movie marathons. Random kindness. Forehead kisses. Exchanging smiles with a stranger when you accidentally discover beauty together. Art. The feeling of falling and floating in love. Stopping to smell the roses on a neighbor’s rose bush. Grilled cheeseburgers. Hugs that linger. Cheesesteaks. Skinny dipping. That moment when you see someone you love after not seeing them for an extended length of time. Driving in the summer with the windows down. Philosophical conversations. Mushrooms. Sunsets. Apple pie. That first sip of coffee in the morning. Crossword puzzles. The moon in all its phases. Breakfast dates. Autumn leaves. Christmas lights. Holding hands with your lover. Crab cakes. Libraries. The adoration of a child. Books. Peanut butter. Book stores. Walks in the rain. Waterfalls. Stargazing. Singing along to your favorite songs. Ice cream. Museums. Baseball games. Listening to the birds sing good morning and good night. Dancing in the kitchen. Nachos. Puppies. Listening to your favorite voice speaking. Long lost friends. Long conversations. Motorcycle rides. Knowledge you have yet to earn. Fuzzy blankets. Hoodies. Bonfires. Yoga. Cafes. Hot chocolate on a cold winter’s night. A glass of chocolate milk after a run. Chocolate in general. Key lime pie. Handwritten letters. Apple cider. Cheese. Radar love. Rainbow sprinkles. Bubbles. Kisses. Having your hair played with. Cooking with your siblings or your best friends. New shoes. Nail polish. Red lipstick. Wine. Pink clouds. The art of baking. Porches. Poetry. Discovering new things you don’t yet realize are your favorite.

      Jesus was a great man who did many great things, but I disagree with your point, and probably religion, too. With that being said, it is okay that we disagree, and you can love and hold onto whatever beliefs you wish. Orange is actually my favorite color, but I’m not a fan of orange lipstick. Haha! We do need better management.
