I find it hard to digest mysteries/crime thrillers in which the detective obviously has superpowers, but the show pretends they don’t. ‘Observation’ and 'reasoning’ and 'intelligence’ are great, but when the detective’s powers are so overblown that the explanations are clearly afterthoughts… I’ve already lost interest.
If you can’t make the detective’s reasoning actually logical, just make them a damn psychic with zoom-and-enhance eyeballs.
Beloved, banish the thought that you have to be good enough before you will come to Him. It will never happen. You can’t be ‘good enough’ without the One who has made you good, who has justified you, and who has freed you from sin. Enjoy Jesus Christ right now– listen to songs about His love, just tell Him everything honestly, remind yourself of His goodness. He does not condemn you.
God is Good! God’s Promises are never wavering. No matter how bad it looks, or impossible or unlikely it seems to come. It will. God is way too powerful to just back out on His Promises. Stop giving into fear of failure. Start leaning on God’s Strength and not your own. It is by God’s Grace and Strength you are saved and helped, not yours. Fear God, Love God more, put everything inside and outside in His Hands and invite Him into your everyday life.
Contraltos are the lowest female singers commonly heard. Unlike their male counterparts (the basses), however, roles for altos are a bit more common, especially in rock musicals. In more traditional pieces, altos are frequently middle-aged leading women, though some of those are mezzos as well. The only role demographic altos have a firm hold over is for women over sixty - which in most shows means grandmothers. In the rare case that there is a female villain in a show, she will probably be an alto.
“You know, I get it,” Neil said. “Being raised as a superstar must be really, really difficult for you. Always a commodity, never a human being, not a single person in your family thinking you’re worth a damn off the court—yeah, sounds rough. Kevin and I talk about your intricate and endless daddy issues all the time. I know it’s not entirely your fault that you are mentally unbalanced and infected with these delusions of grandeur, and I know you’re physically incapable of holding a decent conversation with anyone like every other normal human being can, but I don’t think any of us should have to put up with this much of your bullshit. Pity only gets you so many concessions, and you used yours up about six insults ago. So please, please, just shut the fuck up and leave us alone.”
