I follow you because we have so much in common. Actually "I'm Dillon. 17 years old. Books, coffee, Jesus, Nikon."
Everything, except my name is Yasmine. And I have a Canon :(
But yeah, hahah, your blog is so real, I relate to it all the time. So thank you for that :)
Haha! So true. I just found a Canon AE-1 in our garage, so that’s a plus.
i followed you because i was told you were one of the apparently rare male christian tumblr people. and i'm so glad i did follow you because you're a really good christian influence on my wall :) thanks :)
How did you find me? Through whom? And thank you for the kind words! You’re all so lovely.
I follow[ed] you because you're an authentic Christian blogger. Not like other Christian blogs who just reblog photos with cheesy quotes or sayings that don't have anything to do with Christ. I feel so BLESSED to have found other teens who know what it's really about.
and,and, to continue our 'chat', what kind of books do you like to read?(:
Thank you so, so much for your kind words. That truly does mean a lot to me. God is the only reason I can do anything—and I’ve actually always wanted to make a ranting post about how Christian blogs should actually be Christian.
That being said, I love all sorts of books. I have some favorite young adult books, like The Book Thief, and some favorite classics, like East of Eden, and the standards, like Harry Potter.
Hey Dillon, Well I think you are a rather interesting human being. You are certainly way more conservative than me in your politics but so are most people! But doesn't make you any less fun to follow. :)
God bless you as well, sister. I don’t know if I’ve ever noticed the difference in our politics, but I suppose that simply means it isn’t too terrible of a division!
I think I realized tonight that I'm actually a pretty boring person.
Curtis was a trooper through it all, creating most of the conversations. Thankfully, we made Belgian waffles, which made everything better, and I may have almost hit his cow with one of those aforementioned arrows.
Oh, and I have his brother’s watch on my wrist. I forgot to give that back.
Dillon, although I do understand how people could take what you said in a negative way, I definitely understand what you mean.
I have so many, TOO many friends, who focus so much on the need of a significant other that it consumes their minds and emotions entirely. There is no room left to focus on God and their relationship with Him.
Of course, you already know this, but still. Not many people have voiced this and it was good to know someone else noticed this too.
Just pray for them
Thank you so much. I have so much difficulty in having to support my friends while condemning their actions.
Hey(: I'd love to get to know you. A lot of the posts you reblog, the other Christian blogs I follow reblog, so I see them over and over again and it all blurs into one stream and I don't pick apart the individual people posting them unless I have ask-conversations with them. Haha. But anyway, lovely to see you're a nikon, and I checked out your flickr stream. Looks pretty cool, &I added it to my favorites bar. I also love books and coffee and Jesus soo....there's no reason we shouldn't be friends! (I do send long messages though, if this scares you I apologize) :D
I love getting to know people, and I’m glad we can have this little chat. I am a very happy Nikon user and it makes me incredibly happy to know you are a Nikon user as well. We must unite, you know.
Long messages do not bother me in the slightest. Life is a series of communications, and so we must learn to embrace the entwining language of our brethren.
