Nothing like cruising the empty mountain roads for sunrise. The fact that you can effortlessly pick up a @car2go Mercedes CLA for a quick trip or overnight adventure is just awesome to me.

Okay I don't know about you, but summer seems to be the time for comparison and contentment issues to rise up in our hearts.
I've seen SO many pictures on Instagram and Facebook of engagements or weddings, baby announcements, Europe summer trip posts, pictures of people's new life at college, and beach bodies that are wayyyy better than mine. It's so exhausting, taking all of this in, and then fighting the comparison that comes with it.
But here's one thing I want to point out - all of the life that these squares contain is real and not. It gives us a tiny glimpse into people's lives. Sometimes the good and the bad, but it's never all of it. I think social media gets a bad rap because we try so hard to not be jealous of someone else's highlight real, that we forget to be happy for them. Praise God for what He's doing in their life. And just down right celebrate.
And maybe your heart has been so hurt by the rejection, exclusion, or comparison that social media brings, and you just need to take a break. That's okay too. We weren't built for having to view everyone's best moments and not acknowledge the mundane or the darker parts.
Maybe you're in that season of life; you've just graduated, just gotten engaged, bought a house, had a baby, and life is just so sweet for you. THAT IS ALSO OKAY. Don't let social media or jealous people fool you into thinking that you shouldn't enjoy every second of the mountaintop. Jesus came so we could have abundant life. LIVE in that, don't feel guilty for it.
This is my rant to say that life is so much more than a screen, and whenever your heart is at Jesus is right there with you. Walking along side you, in whatever season you're in. Don't get swept up in comparison, guilt, or shame for your place in life. He's got a purpose for it, we've just gotta trust Him.

Woman's Wide World of Sex: Untangling, Uncovering and Shining
Sexuality is mysterious territory. We know it holds the keys to power, to mystery, to connection, to our unconscious and to our happiness, but many of us feel like we don't have that key. .

"You're an adventure I want to take. You're walking on a tightrope when I'm afraid of heights. You're the smell after it rains, and the depth of the ocean when I am afraid of its vastness - - - but everything else, you are the one thing that makes sense."
