Sunday’s Scripture Verse

​Deuteronomy 3:22

Ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you. (KJV) 

I really like this verse and one of the reasons is because it’s from Deuteronomy, and not one of the popular or commonly read books like Luke or John. I feel like that makes it more special, somehow. I hope you like it too. 

Have a good Sunday!

Sunday’s Scripture Verse

​James 1: 12

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. (KJV) 

Ephesians 6: 13

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. (KJV) 

Todaaay, guess whaaaat, you get two verses instead of one! To make up for last week when I didn’t do this post. Hope your Sunday is good, y’all.

Friday’s Favorite Character: The Hobbit Edition

​Far over the Misty Mountains cold / To dungeons deep and caverns old / We must away, ere break of day / To claim our long-forgotten gold / Misty Mountains by J.R.R. Tolkien 

Favorite Character: Bilbo Baggins

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort. 

The Hobbit, chapter 1: An Unexpected Party 

Bilbo Baggins was the introvert who totally did not want to go on an adventure but he did go on an adventure and was still an introvert afterwards. In fact he was such an introvert that he used a cursed object to turn invisible just so he wouldn’t have to talk to people and I relate to that. He’s also short and gets annoyed when dwarves people eat all his food and wreck his house. 

Bilbo Baggins Quote: 

“Look, I know you doubt me. I know you always have. And you’re right, I often think of Bag-End. I miss my books. And my armchair and my garden. See, that’s where I belong. That’s home. And that’s why I came back. Because . . . you don’t have one. A home. It was taken from you. But I will help you take it back if I can.”

Look, I know you doubt me.
I know you always have.
And you're right, I often think of Bag-end.
I miss my books.
And my armchair and my garden.
See, that's where I belong.
That's home.
And that's why I came back. Because...
...you don't have one. A home.
It was taken from you.
But I will help you take it back if I can.

I Love You 3000 

July 26th 2019 is the three month anniversary of Avengers Endgame’s release. That being so, I thought I’d talk about it a little bit. I assume most of you have seen Endgame or aren’t Marvel fans at all. If you are a fan and haven’t seen it yet then turn right around because there will be spoilers ahead.

Avengers Endgame is an awesome movie and I enjoyed it so much. There were so many iconic references to the previous movies which made it special, like the past 11 years has been leading up just to this. It made the MCU a full circle, and it was also the last movie with a Stan Lee cameo we’ll ever have, so it’s definitely the end of an era. It had some of the best moments we’ve ever seen in the MCU, like oH my wORd when Steve caught Mjolnir! My whole theater clapped and cheered, and I think I gasped. I still play that bit over in my head, and still get a little thrill in my stomach every time. If you are a fan, this movie is meant to shake you. I mean literally. You’ll have chills.

Saddest Best Endgame Moments:

“Yes! Still worthy!”

“See you in a minute.”

“Let me go. It’s okay.”

“Yes! I knew it!”

“On your left.”

“Avengers . . . Assemble.”

“Oh this is nice.”

“And I . . . am . . . Ironman.”

“We won, Mr. Stark. We won.”

“We’re gonna be okay.”

“Cheeseburgers.”

“I love you 3000.”

While Endgame had some of the greatest moments the MCU has ever seen, it still came with disappointments. Especially if you’re a fan and you’ve spent the year since Infinity War reading theories and hoping against hope about what might have been and it ended up not happening.

Disappointment one: Loki. They didn’t revive him and I am still upset about it. I was seriously counting on him to be alive in Endgame and help the others with their plan to save the world. To finally be the hero he died as in Infinity War, but noooooo, Loki didn’t show himself in 2023, even though Marvel had the perfect opportunity to bring him in and they wasted it. There was really no reason for Loki to stay dead, none at all. He’s “died” and come back twice already, and always had a trick up his sleeve and been 12 steps ahead of everyone else. I still believe he’s alive, a big purple grape saying “No resurrections this time” isn’t going to make me doubt the God of Mischief. I just wish my mischievous greasy boy could have been there for his brother in Endgame, which brings me to my next subject.

Thor, one of my favorites; I don’t know whether to be more upset about the way they destroyed his character in Endgame, or about what happened to him because it was actually pretty accurate. He obviously has depression and PTSD from everything he’s been through (no lie, this guy literally lost everything in like the space of one day, and right after that had to fight Thanos and failed to kill him before he Snapped so he’s got the guilt from that) but people just laughed every time he came on screen, like he was the joke or something. Which was horrible and felt wrong to me because depression and PTSD are real problems and can happen to anyone. They didn’t have to make him into the fat joke. I still stan Thor, but I just really miss the happy, positive Thor we got in Ragnarok and I wish we had him back again, with his brother safe and sound. Someone get me Taika Waititi’s number I’m calling him to come fix this.

Avengers Endgame is really the messiest Marvel movie ever, your mood changes 1747648 times and most of the time you have no idea what’s going on. It also completely screwed up the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe now we’ve got like 2957374856 alternate timelines, 2012 Steve knows that Bucky is alive, 2012 Loki disappeared with the Tesseract, 2023 Thor stole 2014 Thor’s Mjolnir, 2023 Natasha died on Vormir in 2014 but is technically still alive on Earth in 2014, 2023 Rocket took the Aether from Jane on Asgard so that makes the rest of Thor The Dark World completely pointless, and I won’t even mention Steve going back in time and marrying Peggy which destroys all the closure they had in the CA movies, basically Endgame threw everything that happened in the previous 21 movies out the window. Wow, Avengers Endgame really is that movie I loved and hated.

I literally still cry have feels about this movie and Tony Stark and Natasha Romanoff and how the original six Avengers will never be together again. I’m torn between wishing the MCU had actually ended with Endgame (personally I feel like with Stan Lee gone the MCU won’t be the same and they shouldn’t even try to top what they’ve already done), and being glad there will be more movies to possibly bring back Loki and make up for what Endgame didn’t do. I guess I only have one thing left to say and that’s . . .

Thank you, Robert Downey Jr.

Thank you, Chris Evans

Thank you, Scarlett Johansson

Thank you, Chris Hemsworth

Thank you, Mark Ruffalo

Thank you, Jeremy Renner

Thank you Ironman, Captain America, Black Widow, Thor, Hulk, and Hawkeye.

And a huge shoutout and thank you to Tina at God’s Kid Speaks https://godskidspeaks.com/ for giving me this nomination! She’s an awesome blogger and one of my best followers and supporters. Totally follow her if you haven’t already.

This is my first time doing an award so I hope I do it right. If I don’t you can all hit me. 

The Barnabas Award is presented in recognition of the encouragement and inspiration a blogger brings to their readers. 

How This Award Works:

Thank the person who nominated you, and share their blog. Think of five bloggers that encourage and inspire you and nominate them. List five things about yourself and answer the questions. Lastly, ask your nominees five questions. Why five? Because it is the number that signifies grace.

Five Things About Myself: 

1) I can totally sing.

2) I can’t close my left eye separately from my right.

3) Adult coloring books stress me out.

4) I’m good at math (that doesn’t mean I like it).

Questions For Me

If you could meet any person face to face, who’s either dead or alive (other than Jesus) who would it be and why?

My mom, Mr. Byrd, and a Malaysian pastor.

World peace but I’m only low-key passionate about it. Almost everyone wants world peace, right?
