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...

  5. PS. Guys, the "higher ups" as you call them, have a blog. This is the link to Daniel Wallace's blog. I asked him some questions on his most recent post, and he responded. Check it out

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO



































love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Similarities:
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

Howl's Moving Castle book analysis

“I feel ill. I'm going to bed, where I may die.”
― Howl, upon having a cold. I've decided to call them "book analysis" because they're not really reviews that tell you how much I liked the book, rather,  me taking the book apart and looking at different aspects of it for my own entertainment. Read on. Also, read Howl's Moving Castle.







This is the original cover of Howl's Moving Castle and I have got to say it is the UGLIEST thing I have ever seen. I like the new one much better.

Ahem.


First of all, I should point out that Howl's Moving Castle is a children's book. However, I like to hold all books I read to the same standard, after all, they're written by adults.

I had biased expectations of Howl's Moving Castle from the start, because I kept hearing from several sources how amazing, how fantastic, how hilarious and how romantic the book was, and hearing the perfectly gorgeous soundtrack by Joe Hizazi(something or other.)

Howl's Movi…
