The most peaceful place

My heart only feels peace when I lay my head down towards You
I can’t stop even if I wanted too
Because right here and now I’m safe
Before I raise up again and ask for Your forgiveness
Even though I know I can never say enough
Know that everything I do, I do for You

The hijab

Skjermbilde 2017-03-22 kl. 15.24.18

A cloth you put around your hair, draped down your chest. A garment worn by women. A religious sign – a sign that shows the world that you are muslim. A sign of oppression for some. But for me it’s a sign of freedom.

A conscious choice I make every day because I refuse to be seen as a sexual object for people to look at. I choose who I want to show my beauty to. And through my modesty you are forced to only see my heart and mind. Because that’s what I choose to share.

Some days I find myself wrapping my veil over and over again, never being satisfied. Feeling a resistance and thinking it would be easier to tuck away my scarfs in the back of the closet, but then I would be like everyone else. What I strive for is not in this world but beyond what I can see. And I finally choose to show the world I’m muslim.

Waiting

I must say I’m quite nervous. For the unknown, the family we are about to become. Here I am, sitting, waiting, day in and day out. Waiting for you. I never thought you would come so soon but as we plan so does a greater power, and He is the best of planners. So when things get a little bit too hard or nerve-racking I think about that it’s all in the hands of my Creator. This gives me a sense of peace and ease. This is how it’s meant to be and I can’t wait for our next chapter to begin.

The life we live

I’ve waited so long for the days to turn longer, the leaves on the trees to turn green and the weather warm. Now I’ve got it all and trying so hard to enjoy the longer days, the green trees and the warm breeze. But I can’t help but to think that all that I’ve got now is going to fade and I’m lost standing left with short days, dying trees and cold winds.

Days turn into night and darkness into light. We fade away to the emptiness and stay till we’re next to nothing again.

The days turn shorter and the nights longer. We don’t change because we know something better is coming. The comfort is straining us, killing us one by one. We forget how to live and think we’ll die in peace. As if we’ve done everything our life has set up to offer us. At the times of need we looked away and didn’t take a chance.

Now we’re next to nothing and our lives have gone by without us blinking twice. We regret and wish we could turn it all back. To start over and take the chances we got when they knocked at our door. We lie our heads to rest every night wishing we could go back but in the end we go to sleep and remember that this was all just a dream.

Guest post

Hello everyone out there!

This is a guest post from a good friend of the owner of this blog.
I’m just going to write a few things about Elizabeth from her best friends view.

1.Elizabeth is very kind and good. She listens to problems and keeps secrets. She is one of the few people I always can trust.
2.Elisabeth is also very good at everything she wants to be good at: School, fashion, hair, make up, economy, health, fitness.. and so much more.
3.Elizabeth is also a smart girl who is able to reflect and think. She doesn’t judge and have many different (strange, funny and good) friends.

There are so many things about Elizabeth that are admirable & she’s one of the people I look up too.

I love my girl so much and I don’t know what I would do without her.
