Imagine looking at a beautiful valley, rising before you. It is surrounded by mountains that blanket the landscape with a magnificent patchwork of all hues of green imaginable, and the clouds hang so low the horizon is shrouded in mist. An everso slightly chilly drizzle of rain gently taps at your head, over and over, countless times. You look at the narrow path consisting of rocks and sand leading up. And as you follow it it takes you up the mountains passing numerous little streams and waterfalls that gradually increase in size, and become more and more raw and untouched. The flowers, and the rocky cliffs and slopes upon which they grow surround you, the water of the pools clear as glass, and holding every shade of blue, green and teal imaginable. As you stand there amidst that green, misty valley, looking out over the magnificense that is unfolding slowly before your eyes, you wish you could stay forever... That was what it felt like for me, but pictures and words do it no justice, the beautiful Faery Pools in Scotland ❤
I offered some rosequartz beads to the Fae and my dad and I actually drank some water from the falls. (it's not a bad thing to do as long as the water is running and not still)
Words cannot describe my love for this place, it's so beautiful and serene... More proof that magick is inevitably bound to this country. 🌠

A beautiful Loch in Scotland...🌊 Waking up to this was pure bliss!
I'm only back for a little over a week, but I miss it now already. *dreamy sigh* I must go again, somewhere in the near future. *puts on determined warrior face while looking at the sunset with a wind-machine-effect going* Who is with me? 💪
// HER REALITY //
The #iPhone, @amazon, @netflix, @spotify, @youtube, @uber, @tesla and @instagram existed well before she took her first breath. For Emma, The Bible has always been an app and the company (@oculus now @facebook) that made those goggles was started before she could say the letters V or R. She asks #Alexa or #okgoogle to listen to music, hear the temp to decide what to wear or turn off the lights. She doesn’t understand how television or radio works and won’t have a use for it, she’ll likely never drive a car and will probably have 95% of what she buys delivered to her (most likely within hours of ordering it). She’ll probably travel more, not less because of VR when she sees more of this #beautiful world. With all of this incredible access to information and people comes a tremendous responsibility to filter for truth, set appropriate boundaries, use the tools and tech in a way that honors God and to keep her identity centered on who God created her to be. She’ll own that responsibility one day and it likely won’t be easy. Today, however, it falls on me...and it’s still not easy. That’s my reality.
I know there are many parents facing this same reality. Do you have any wisdom, tips, resources or advice you could share?
