Profound Thought of the Day
You know what I miss? Baptisms. I was just thinking tonight how long it’s been since I’ve been to or seen one. I realize there aren’t a lot of newcomers, or new Christians at our church (which is another point altogether), but I feel like it’s a vital step in a person’s life of faith and I realized tonight I don’t even know how our church views baptism. ...

fistfuls of honey: SO YOU WANT TO WRITE A FANTASY: →
missturdle: How exciting! Fantasy is so fun! You can do anything you want to your universe, because it’s fantasy - which is really great, because you’ve always wanted cats to talk and everyone else to share your distaste of squash.

Today’s lesson: Climbing Stairs Put on earphones. If you haven’t some sort of mobile music device, get one. (How do you live??) Turn on epic adventure music. This can be anything exciting, daring, or the pump-up-the-volume type. Movie/video game soundtracks or rock-and-roll anthems are recommended.

I’m taking four classes, which isn’t a terrible load. German is going to be the hardest, I think… SO. MUCH. VOCAB. And I can’t pronounce anything worth—...
