Do you feel called to ministry?

STOP.

and take a look at my new blog design! Isn't it beautiful? Thank you Qui! <3 I love Qui. And look at my gorgeous new signature!








(I'm putting it at the top of my post so you can see it better.)


Anyways.

When we think about what we want our careers to be, a lot of my friends tell me they feel called to be a missionary or a pastor or somebody who works in the church.

It just feels right to lead worship, to teach kids about the bible, to hand out food to people who don't have any. A lot of people feel something click inside when they go on mission trips and help out in church.

It's because we're wired that way. Every single one of us has a inner desire to serve and to worship and to help others. It's how God made us.

So if you feel an urge to be in ministry, keep in mind that we're all called to "missionaries"! We can pursue regular careers and still be a missionary to others in our field.

I think I might like to be a scientist. Or work at a publishing house.

  1. Wow! I absolutely adore the new layout! I really like the green.

    I always thought it would be great to be a missionary...

  2. I actually have felt called by God Himself to be a missionary... I know I have so much to learn before that could ever happen. I just know He's called me to one day do so. ;)

  3. I am like Ley, (or as we know her, Leia..lol).

    I feel a burden for the Arab people, for some reason. I don't think God is calling me to GO to Pakistan, or anything, but to do something.

    But of course, I can be a missionary doing anything. Even writing. Which is a huge bonus! :-D

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…

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…
