May God bless the woman deep within me, the woman I'm trying to be. May He mend where my heart is broken & fill every empty space. May God erase the fears of my past, to create in me a brighter future. May He make me slow to anger & quick to forgive.
Gravensteen Castle, Ghent, Belgium was built in 1180 by count Philip of Alsace and was modeled after the crusaders castles that Philip of Alsace encountered while he participated in the second crusade.
The castle -- He didn't know whether to fear, or embrace the sunlight. How rare it shown, and yet, how brightly it lit the shadows. When things are in darkness, secrets can be kept. But light had a strange way of unearthing even the darkest truths.
