16 years of loyalty
720 matches of badassery
34 years of unintelligible dialogue
Captain, father, waiting to be knighted

Are we bringing this back??
In April 1989, 96 people went to watch a football match and never came home. They went there to see their beloved Liverpool — and, today, a quarter of a century later, before one of the club’s biggest games ever, those fans were honored beautifully.
Afterward, led by their captain, Steven Gerrard — the paragon of loyalty in a sporting era that often rewards money-grabbing and title hunger far more than fidelity to a cause — they won the game, 3-2, and set themselves up for their first league title since 1990.
When the game finished, Gerrard had tears in his eyes — and while some of those were no doubt down to a mixture of relief, exhaustion, and the thrill of victory — a lot of them were down to something more.
Gerrard’s cousin, Jon-Paul Gilhooley, died at the stadium in 1989 when he was only 10. While most of the time we can freely admit that sports are just sports — and the narratives we spin are irrationally inflated to feed our obsession with a game — sometimes they are something way more important than that.
Sometimes, sports say a lot about life and help us heal wounds that we once thought never could even begin to heal — and today was one of those times. #JFT96 [Posted by Zack]
So this guy volunteers at the Olympics. He figures maybe he’ll get to see some amazing athletes doing athletic things. And then the fastest man alive gives him a fist bump.
Look at all that happy.
this is still my favourite thing on the internet
I still love this
Who’s outscored Torres this season?
My part I of a two part series on Pope Francis and why I think he rocks! There has been a backlash against religiosity lately with all that is going on in the world and folks like him definitely help restore your faith!
I’m agnostic bordering on atheist and this man warms my heart. He is what we should all strive to be.
Agnostic yet going down the list i’m liking this pope more and more.
Jesus is the friend of people who are willing to admit that they have problems. If we understand that we have issues, if we recognize that we have stuff we cannot conquer, then Jesus is near to us.
You don’t have to be good to be Jesus’s friend. You just have to be honest.Judah Smith (via heartbeatofatwentysomething)
Come what may, I won’t abandon you or leave you behind. Cause love is a loyalty sworn not a burning for a moment. Come what may, I will be standing right here by your side. I won’t run, even when the weight of the storm getting worse and there’s no end in sight.The Weight, Thrice (via kvtes)
Once again I find myself having not really posted in a while. It’s like I reach a stage with things where I just don’t have input anymore. Facebook is much the same, I rarely write a status unless I need something or have great news to tell. I want to be able to interact more with what’s around me. Not just be a passive observer, but actively engaging in the communities that in involved with.
Sometimes I feel that it’s a similar situation with my relationship with God. Sometimes. It can feel like I’ve received all of this grace and redemption and mercy but I’m not always sure what I’m giving back. Again, it seems to me to be the case that my life is not actively engaging in this relationship with Christ that I find myself in.
It’s funny how much you need those people that watch how you live life. Their viewpoint, as an outsider, can be so important because they can see things that you can’t see from the inside. Obviously God has the best viewpoint of all, but when it feels like you aren’t talking to him for whatever reason, that’s when it’s most important to have those people who tell you that you seem to have most things under control. It can give you that little bit of strength to move on to the next burden that you know isn’t under control, even if others think it is.
Remember that life is about community. Interacting with those around you on a level where you can develop a relationship with them. Most importantly with God, he who is the most glorious example of community, relationship with him is the most important community that we can develop.
