Fasciated daisy — Fasciated stems are produced due to abnormal activity in the growing tip of the plant.  Often an abnormal number of flowers are produced on affected stems. Normal branches may arise from fasciated stems. Fasciation is unpredictable and is usually limited to a single stem. It seldom recurs the following year.

taraleigh1717 asked: Can you tell us about yours and Nick's praying for each other? Do you pray together every time you're with each other or just when one of you asks

Hey so by “us” I figure you meant this question as a public one, so I’ll just publish it :)

We don’t pray every time we’re with each other. And there’s never been a time we had to ask, either. We kind of just go with our spirit and pray together when we feel led. More often, he approaches me with a reason, with something to pray over me about, and he just does. 
We feel free enough to just simply approach one another in that way. We’ve only prayed with one another in church settings, and once on the phone, he asked if he could pray. 
But we openly talk about the Lord and speak encouragement over one another on a daily basis in our everyday conversation, which absolutely brings spiritual fellowship between us too.

Hey number #one plz don’t be mean

also, I never said that. I just said I (just me!!) don’t think debating on the internet with people, especially other believers for the world to watch on the sidelines, is a wise decision. Especially if you’re a pastor. It doesn’t look like love to me. Let’s be real would Jesus have done any of that?

I’m only reblogging this and stating my opinion here to simply offer the question of the other side, in consideration, because I adore Emily more than a lot of people in this world :)<3

Em! I actually disagree with you (it’s a first I think?) and I mean the reason I do, is because Jesus stood up for the people who faced oppression. He was unwavering in His love for them and for equality for them (we see this in His respect and protection of women, a very oppressed group at that time, and for the sick, cast out of the cities to live in isolation). 
So I think that is love. Stating the truth firmly and unwaveringly, making sure peoples’ eyes are open to injustice that they may never experience or fully understand.

HOWEVER, I’m with you in that we should not go around picking fights or instigating arguments. I don’t know if this is about M.Chandler, guessing it is? But I don’t think he was trying to pick fights, just really get people to think and consider that their little bubble isn’t all there is to this world. 
Could he have been more polite in some ways? Probably. But you can tell he just has a deep conviction about it.

So instead of seeing this as him being harsh or rude to people who still harbor racist mindsets, I see it as him bringing an issue to light and therefore standing up for brothers and sisters in Christ who face a struggle we don’t see or understand.

I’m so glad he spoke up about it on his social media platforms, which is the biggest platform he has. Should he have engaged people whose minds are clearly closed? Mmmm, maybe no, but it definitely doesn’t bother me that he did.

THAT’S MY TWO CENTS, I love and respect Emily eternally as a personal friend and wise girl who has spoken hella advice to me. 
I have nothing but love for you.

I love you Hope!!! I agree with everything you said. You’re so right. I’m happy that he’s standing up for oppression and I do fully believe that’s what we’re called to do. I’m standing with him and everything he said. It’s just the fact that he was being impolite that made me think “ehhh… shouldn’t have gone that far” because if I sin against my brothers and sisters in the process of standing for oppression, it is just as wrong as the sin OF oppression

Wow I don’t usually talk about political things it’s so icky I just love you Hope thank you for replying and giving your wisdom! 

^^^ v true v true. If we’re not showing love, even in the midst of disagreement, something is wrong. Yes.

It’s always great adventuring with Stephanie, her meek appearance has no correlation to her courageous spirit. I’m so thankful for the people I’ve met through tumblr. The internet is a great place. (at Detroit Riverfront)

She’s so wonderful

she’s honestly one of the best people I know.
