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.
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...

  4. Dan Wallace commented TWICE.
    I feel so famous.

  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

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…

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
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…
