What will heaven be like? – The Good Place Spoiler Alert

I think that until we really realize what life is like without God, this almost literally Godforsaken earth we've advocated for since the beginning of time, it would be impossible for us to truly understand that an eternity of perfect communion with God and each other is the only antidote to this aching pain we have deep within us. Once we get to heaven and our sinful, selfish blinders are removed, I don't think we'd have eternity any other way.

My Dream (not Starring any millionaires)

Why, hello there. I’m really getting tired of these vivid dreams. I think last night I just had too much on my mind.

Soul Suckers Incorporated

Though the movie and the book had more differences than similarities, there were positive points along with negatives in each. In the story plot as a whole, I liked the fact that Six was portrayed as a strong, courageous, independent woman who could thrive on her own and pack a punch. She wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty or risk her life to save her planet and ours. The story showed the value of making decisions carefully, especially if something very important is riding on what you choose to do. As a science fiction fan, I appreciate those concepts mixed in with interplanetary war.

My Dream (starring John Krasinski)

Last night was pretty trippy. In my dream, our house was also a mall or something, completely open concept. No privacy in the bathroom, and our sofa facing the breezeway where John Krasinski was using my BBQ. But we will get to that.

Just Ella by Margaret Peterson Haddix

...if she had simply accepted what they told her, she would have never realized how wrong they were. Ella’s only true friends at the palace were a servant girl and the sick tutor’s son who replaced him. What’s more, Prince Charming wasn’t that charming after all—he had only wanted to marry her for her beauty! Now that Ella had found out what the Royals and palace life were really like, she knew she couldn’t go on the way she was.

Hades by Alexandra Adornetto

Even though [Arakiel's] virtuous displays are few and far between, they occur enough to make Lucifer wonder whether his brother has gone soft. Lucifer only intended to start a war, not a silly romance between an angel and a demon. He orders Bethany to be burned at the stake in front of an audience of demons and lost souls, but not even hellfire can destroy the young angel.

A Study in Grit

My dreams and Sonny’s dreams are a little unheard of and a little odd to the people around us, dreams you would have to experience to believe are worthwhile. Sometimes I don’t believe in myself and the benefits of my goal, and sometimes it is hard to see where I am going. Like the climber hugging the face of the rocky, deadly mountain, I am not in a position to see the top, my goal. I only have my imagination to feel the success, and to design my path to reach it. When things happen that I do not expect, the challenge of absorbing the problem and shaping my life around it stretches my imagination and the abilities of my mind. Whatever stands in our path helps to shape who we are and prepare us for whatever happens next.

Winter in Verona

“There is still red in your lips and in your cheeks. Death has not yet turned them pale…Ah, dear Juliet, why are you still so beautiful?” He doesn’t stop to wonder at how she died, is only plagued with insanity that she is dead.
