Mustard seeds


 This was my favorite bible verse when I was younger:

"I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
Matthew 17:20

Because, being a SW fan, I automatically assumed that being a really good Christian enabled you to use telekinesis to pick up mountains and move them. Never mind that Jesus never did that. Every time I prayed to "grow in faith" I imagined myself rearranging the face of the earth. I tried moving the mountain near my house almost every day. 

When I got a little older, my Sunday school teacher said it was metaphorical for obstacles in life.
Oh.
I always thought that you wouldn't need to fix problems in life if you could move mountains and other similarly large landmarks.

Getting bad grades in school? Crush school with the Himalayas. Kid picking on you? Squish him with the Empire State Building. If it takes too long to get to someplace, move all the mountains and houses in the way, and put them back after you walk through.

I think life would be easier if we could move the darn actual mountains.

  1. Boy, moving real mountains would make life easier. But With Jesus as you're Savior, you can move metaphorical mountains in your life. With Jesus' help, of course. Matthew 19:26
    But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

  2. So true. I always wanted to move mountains.
    Gee, when I posted about Her Universe on LS (A Lightsaber and a Script for the uninitiated), all I got was a little thing on HU's FB page. You get comments from the higher ups. Lucky. :P
    At least I don't have to hide under my bed. LOL!

  3. Hey, great post! BTW My face was like this when I saw the comments from the higher up from HU: 8O LOL I'm just kidding.

    I actually feel bad about saying that maybe Ashley didn't come up with the idea for HU which he says was, in fact, her idea.... Oops. It was just a thought...

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.


Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.



I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…

Anime, Fruits Basket, and Crushes on Fictional Characters

from left to right: Kyo, Shigure(top), Tohru(holding cat), and Yuki.

I recently started watching my first anime EVER, Fruits Basket(フルーツバスケットFurūtsu Basuketto?).
Here is the summary:
After the death of her mother, young Tohru Honda has been secretly living on her own in a tent. Her life changes forever when she stumbles upon the secret of the Sohma family, whose land she has been living on. They are afflicted by a Hereditary Cursethat changes some members of the family into animals of the Eastern Zodiac when they are hugged by someone of the opposite sex that is not also a Zodiac member.
Now living with three of the Sohma family, every day is an adventure for sweet Tohru, as she gets to know all of the very different family members better, in both common and bizarre situations. But, the Sohma family curse is certainly no laughing matter...it also holds horrible cruelty and heartbreak. Despite this, the members of the Sohma family find a new peace thanks to the presence of Tohr…

the hunger games pre-movie post

Mostly a bunch of gifs/pics/vids in tribute(haha, see what i did there? Tribute?) to the ginourmous Hunger Games fandom. I criticize it all the time, but hey, the series is good XD.

And besides, the new Dance Moms episode is taking forever to load.

I've been preparing for the movie by watching an appropriate amount of behind the scenes, interview, and released clip vids as well as parodies. And can I just say Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson might be my two new favorite celebrities. I've seen Josh Hutcherson in two movies before, Bridge to Terabithia and RV.I still can't believe it's the same guy. He's so funny XD
