Path of the Gods (Sentiero degli Dei), Italy’s Amalfi Coast

This 5-mile path hugs the coastal cliffs above the Mediterranean, linking the hilltop town of Agerola with Nocelle, and is an absolute must-do hike!

We hiked from Positano to Nocelle (1700 steps up!) and then followed the lower section of the path to Colle Sera, before turning around and following the upper section of the path back. Both sections are along the cliffside and insanely beautiful! I especially loved being on the upper path and looking down on the lower one along the cliff. We descended through Montepertuso back to Positano for a round trip hike of about 12 miles. The steps (up and down!) certainly got to our legs, but the views were totally worth the effort.

Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. - Galatians 5:25

It’s a hard calling. Once we know Him as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, it seems like temptations and tribulations are the only thing in our path. But God did not promise an easy life, troubles are expected. But how we deal with them defines our relationship with God.

Worldly ways are to be left behind and forgotten. You’re not that same person anymore. You’re made new, righteous and most importantly, His. It will be hard, but with God on your side, it will become bearable.

Be just as committed to God as He is to you. Grow in Him, learn from Him and seek Him. From a burden, life will become a blessing.

there are gods you’ll see on a warm summer day, when the sun is close and ripe, and the air smells like flowers in full bloom, and like young wine goes to your head

there are gods you’ll see when the snowy night has covered the world in a deep dark shroud and your soul is bare against the judgement of the stars

there are gods you’ll see when you look into the eyes of a stranger and catch a glimpse of a long forgotten lover, overflowing with promises of many sleepless nights

there are gods you’ll see when your heart boils with anger and your spirit fills with wicked desires, as red as blood and as blood sweet

there are gods you’ll see when the pain tears you like thorns and nettles, and there are gods you’ll see when loneliness burdens you like a heavy unwanted crown

there are gods you’ll see in songs, in the beating of the drums and of the hearts, in the shimmer of a mountain stream and the depth of the sea, gods of wolf’s howl and of the forest

there are gods you’ll see many times on your path, and there are gods you’ll see only once in your lifetime, gods you’ll be happy to see and those you’d rather forget

there are gods you’ll see in the dreams

gods you’ll see in the smoke

gods you’ll see in the mirror


whatever you do, don’t look at them too long.

Who Gives a Shit About Glass? Only the Spiteful Man Will Pass!

(So there the party stood at the first of a series of challenges, “walking the path of god”. An old man tells us we must each choose to walk through one of six 30 ft. hallways, each of which is littered with a cruel, cruel truckload of pointy crap: Shards of glass, caltrops, bright red hot bolts, razor blades, sharpened bamboo, and ankle-deep acid. So we were forced to pick our poison.)

Dwarf Skald: (immediately) “I’ll take the red hot bolts.”

Aasimar Summoner: “I’d probably be cheating if I flew over the acid?” (Which is why, even though she didn’t touch the acid, she felt the pain anyway.)

Human-Who-Thinks-He’s-a-Dragon Paladin: “I will walk the path of bamboo!”

Human Fighter: “Seriously, why is there a bamboo path? What, are we in Vietnam?”

(The comparison became more accurate when the GM revealed the bamboo was covered in something toxic as well.)

Human Rogue: “…Fuck it, I’ll take the broken glass; If John McClane can do it, I can fucking do it.”

Fighter: “Nice, the Die Hard way… So did you go yet, or were you waiting until everyone else did it first?”

Rogue: “I mean, basically, yeah.”

Fighter: “Huh, and here I thought you wanted to be a cool treasure hunter. Indiana Jones? More like Indiana Pussy.”

Rogue: “Okay, you know what? I RUN through the hall of broken glass before you even start with your dinky caltrops, just to SPITE YOU!”

(Made it through with only 3 hit points. It was worth it.)

This is a book about witches, about bonfires and theatres after closing. This is a book about red leather journals, Irish demons, and how spells have consequences. This is a book about lost things, broken things, hidden things.

This is a story of girls who kiss girls, a story of running under moonlight, a story of summer storms. This is a story of iron and salt, a story of darkness under trees, and winding paths that lead god knows where.

This is a book about Southern skies, stunted twisted trees, sacrificial girls in white dresses, preachers and their captive audience, and towns where brother has turned against brother. This is a story of hangings and drownings and bloodletting, a story of a town who tried to grow closer to god but forgot about the devil.

This is a story about how there is more to life than we know, and how there might just be magic in every crack and fold.

Yes, this is a book about magic. Magic that is all blood, and sacrifice, and consequence. Magic that cares not for your name or who you are, but will burn you up on the way to brighter things.

This, is The Fairytale Of Sawyer Blue.

whaA/N: wow, uh. it’s been almost 5 months since i updated this story… please forgive me, i have made it longer than all the other parts for you all……. please don’t kill me over the ending also no worries, this isn’t the last part

summary: Following Peter to confirm your suspicions has some unforeseen consequences.

pairing: peter parker x reader

01 | 02 | 03 | 04 | 05 


You’d laid in your bed, awake until two hours before you had to get up for school, and thought about Spider-Man and Peter.

They had to be the same person. They just had to be.

There were three main reasons why you were convinced that Peter Parker was Spider-Man.

The path to God isn’t exclusive for ‘perfect’ people to walk on. It’s for the broken, the depraved, the lowly, the lost, the ones feeling empty, the ones rundown by life, the ones seeking meaning, the ones seeking hope, the ones seeking redemption. It’s for everyone. You’re not meant to become perfect and then tread the path to God. The path to God is waiting for you to begin your journey on it in whatever state you are because it is on that path that you will become a better you. So don’t lose heart. Don’t get comfortable in the dark thinking that you can’t get to God. He’s already with you, listening to you, providing for you, protecting you. So close. Closer than you think, closer than your jugular. If only you gain the courage to walk to Him, He’ll rush towards you. But you must take the first step. You must ignite your love for Him and you’ll find Him. You will find Him. You will find Him. I promise. He promised.

If you’re reading this, God is allowing your heart to beat, He is allowing air to flow through your lungs, there is blood running through your veins, and you were able to open up two wonderful gifts I call eyes to witness a new day. You still have the activity of your limbs to move around, you have your senses to enjoy all that God has made. That in itself should push you to make a joyful noise.

David wrote in the Book of Psalm, “Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name,“ (Psalms‬ ‭103:1‬ , KJV‬‬). We should always bless the Lord. Whether during times of happiness or during our times of sadness. God is so good to us daily. He has never failed us.

We should bless Him for our lives, health, and strength. We should bless Him, because His mercies are new each day. We should bless Him because He protects us from danger seen and unseen. He provides for us and sends us resources.

We should bless Him, because His love is never ending and though we fail Him daily, He is still full of compassion. We disappoint Him daily, but He still blesses us over and over again. Many times we become distracted and wander down the wrong path, but He is there to take our hand to lead us back down the right path.

We must learn to bless God at all times, because all of the time, He is blessing us.

Come on and bless the Lord with me today!

Every year, thousands of people repent of their sins, but none of these ever regrets his decision. Many repent concerning time misspent and opportunities neglected. But no one has ever declared that he repents of repenting, and turning towards God. No one was ever sorry that he served the Lord. No man ever said, at the end of his days, “I have read my Bible too much, I have thought of God too much, I have prayed too much, I have been too careful about my soul”. Rather, a Christian will say, “Had I my life again, I would walk more closely with God. The way of Christ may have its cross, but it is a pleasant and peaceful path.

Let repentance towards God and faith towards the Lord Jesus Christ be the great pillars of our religion. May we, while we repent, believe; and while we believe, repent. May these be uppermost in the creed of our souls.

J. C. Ryle - Repentance

I’ve been playing a bunch of Darkest Dungeon (coming up on finishing year 2 of my first campaign; I’ve cleared all bosses in the Ruins and Weald and am making a path to the Swine God and the Alluring Siren in the Warrens and Cove, respectively; I just got the final Prophet tonight), and reading what people say about “optimal” D&D5 play

Specifically, a thing that they’re saying is that the only hit point that matters is your last, so healing anyone who isn’t down is a waste, as is any heal that is not done with a bonus action when a bonus action will do (to recover more than your last hit point, spend hit dice)

In Darkest Dungeon, that’s sort-of true too; a character with 1 HP and a character with full HP are equally effective, and equally at no risk of being one-shotted. But DD adds the mechanic that a character who has ever been to 0 HP that adventure takes a wide-ranging, if minor, penalty. The mortality debuff hurts just enough that you’ll feel it in every way, but it doesn’t make a character useless at anything

That little thing means that, except in the boss fights that make it impossible to keep people off death’s door (I’m thinking the Prophet, with his “rocks fall, these two people take a large amount of damage” ability, and the Hag, with her cauldron, in particular), you want to avoid having your adventurers even touch death’s door, even if you can pull them off before they die (which isn’t guaranteed, given the randomness in the turn order)

I wonder what new tactics would develop for D&D5 if a change like that were made (-1 to any roll you add an ability modifier to after you’ve been at 0 HP until you get a long rest, maybe)

When the path you’re on proves to have more sharp, uncertain turns and more uphill hikes than you were expecting, keep treading. Keep the faith. This is the path God put you on and the paths that He creates do not have dead ends. The paths that He creates will always lead you in the right direction.

With every mile, it may seem that the journey just keeps getting longer and longer, but it’s not how long you’ve been here that makes all of this matters. What makes it matter is the One Who is laying down the path, stone by stone, and keeping your feet steady the entire way.

You may not have access to the blueprints of this path, but you do have His Word. You do have the opportunity to trust Him when He says that He already has everything mapped out for you. Have faith that He is not going to lead you down a path that leads to destruction. Have faith that the wait itself produces the strength required to get where He is taking you. You won’t get there without the required preparation. You won’t get there without completely and wholly relying on Him to take you where you’re supposed to be, when you’re supposed to be there.

Yes, there will be days when it seems that the things you’re longing for are incredibly far away, but you have to find peace that God is incredibly close, with the blueprints to your future in His hand, and everything will always go according to His Will, exactly as He has planned.

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. - Psalm 119:105

“No, absolutely not” you shouted as you stood up, grabbing your empty glass.


 

“Oh come on, why not?” Seokjin whined, kicking his feet a little like a toddler having a tantrum.


 

“Because I don’t need you to set me up, I’m perfectly capable of finding someone myself” you replied as you walked away from the group.


 

“I promise he’s a nice guy” Seokjin shouted as you headed inside, you made your way through to the kitchen ignoring the people around you, as they did you. They weren’t there for you, most of them were celebrities that just wanted to unwind and enjoy themselves in the private walls that bts’ dorm provided for them.


 

As soon as you entered the kitchen, one guy in particular caught your eye, his slack frame that was leaning against the wall noticeably perked up as soon as you entered. You smirked to yourself before grabbing your bottle and refilling your glass, you had seen him somewhere before, you racked your brain but couldn’t place where.
