This was the most marvelous game I ever played. Dorado Defense, one kid on my team had been going on about his “Noob team” (which was great btw) for a while now, spewing insults, you know acting like he came right from a call of duty session.
I suggested he chill. He suggested I drink bleach.
I could have muted him. I could have blocked him. I could have sent a report. But as the lone Mercy, there was only one thing that I would do.
Take him off heals of course.
I healed everyone else. Sometimes I’d stand next to him when he was at critical health and healed the person at full health by his side.
Halfway through the game he started begging.
I’ve gained twenty years to my life from the frantic “MERRCY PLZZZ” that I got.
I had half a mind to make him beg for my forgiveness, but I was busy keeping the rest of the team alive.
On Memorial Day 2017, I would like to celebrate by looking back at our very first fallen veterans. In the 1860s, Revolutionary War veterans were beginning to disappear for good. Wanting to capture their photographs one last time for history to remember, one photographer set out to photograph the very last survivors he could find alive. This tiny set of 7-8 pictures is all that we have left of this remarkable generation. Some of these men were there at the battles of Lexington and Concord, one was a drummer boy for General Washington himself, and others fought and suffered injuries for their service; all of this nearly 240 years ago! Please reblog to share these little seen photographs because I honestly think Americans need and deserve to see their history with their own eyes in order to even begin to comprehend how real it was.
Not everyone is going to see your worth and potential. Even when you see their’s, and even when you pour time and energy into being the absolute best you can be, there will still be people who look past you or take you for granted. Whether you’ve dealt with this romantically, with friends, your job, or even in ministry, this hurts. However, God is faithful in providing us with Biblically rooted hope for this hurt:
In Samuel 16:1-13, even though God wanted David to be appointed as a king by Samuel, David was nowhere close to being Samuel’s first choice. Samuel was certain that one of David’s brothers was the one God wanted. However, God stepped in, and in a final turn of events, David, who was not even in consideration for being chosen as king, was brought in to his father Jesse’s house and was appointed as king over everyone else.
Had it not been for the Lord, David would have never gotten that position. Even though Samuel eventually saw David was the one who God wanted to be appointed as King, God was the One who anointed Him and made it possible.
Remember this when it comes to romantic relationships, friendships, work opportunities, ministry opportunities, and anything else you desire to have. God never forgets to give you what was meant for you. You may be overlooked by man, but you will never be overlooked by Him. So keep on doing what you do for Him, knowing that He is always faithful in honoring those who do, regardless of how long it takes for others to see your worth.

Summary: It was like he forgot you existed, he forgot who you were and what you were to him. He had built up his walls once again, and this time you couldn’t break them down.
“Oh..I see.” you said softly, trailing off as Taehyung sighed on the other end.
“I’m sorry noona, I know it’s been forever since you’ve seen him…has he not visited home?” he asked.
You let out a humorless chuckle, as you replied,“ I’d be surprised if he even remembered where I lived.”
“Oh noona, I’m sure it’s not like that! It’s just with the comeback coming soon, he’s just been stressed out a lot lately you know?” Taehyung reasoned.
“I guess so Taehyung-ah…It’s okay, I understand…Just let him know I called at least, okay?” you asked him.
“I will noona…I’ll also knock some sense into him, okay?!” he said, causing you to laugh a little at the boy.
“Thanks Taehyung-ah…” you trailed off as you said your goodbyes and ended the call, slumping against your couch that’s been empty of Yoongi and his cuddles for almost 3 weeks now.
That’s right, for almost a month it was as if Yoongi, your boyfriend, had fallen of the face of the planet. You’d call him and he’d rarely pick up while his texts were always short and ended with ’Im busy, text you laters’“.
You were tired of it honestly, missing him and his warm embraces, his gummy smiles which were always directed at you and the way he would murmur the sweetest of words into your ear as you drifted asleep in his arms every night.
But for the last month, it was anything but that and you felt yourself breaking apart slowly.
It scared you how dependent you were of him, how much you relied on him and how much you needed him.
And the fact that it didn’t seem like he felt the same scared you even more.
