"You like him, don't you?" Aaron chuckled, patting Mark on the back.

Mark buried his face into his hands. “Is it that obvious?”

“Sorry to say it is,” Aaron grinned. “You’ve been staring at our dear Irishman as if he’s the sun and you don’t see anything else in the world.”

Across the field, the two friends watched the other two friends, Jack and Felix, haphazardly try to hit a ball between them. It basically consisted of Jack tossing a baseball at Felix, and Felix swinging to hit it with a bat, and failing. Every now and again they switched roles, but Jack was just as bad at hitting it as Felix was.

“He’s just so…” Mark mumbled, watching as Felix swung so hard he actually managed to trip, and Jack laughing his ass off. “Great. Wonderful. I can’t…explain it.” 

“These sort of things rarely have an explanation,” Aaron replied. “I must say, it’s unexpected. But pleasant. You and Jack…wouldn’t that be something?”

Mark flushed, trying not to think too much on the thought of them being a thing. Sure, he had an insanely large crush on him, but it wasn’t as though it was reciprocated, was it? He said as much. “He doesn’t even like me back.”

Aaron gave him a knowing sort of grin, yet Mark couldn’t suss out what he was getting at as he said cryptically, “Maybe, but who can say?”

At that moment, Jack looked over and called out, “Mark! Get over here and take Felix’s place! He sucks so much ass right now!”

“You suck ass too!”

Mark chuckled at the banter, and called back, “Coming!”

Aaron urged him on and Mark walked across the field, meeting Jack’s gaze. The Irishman gave him a toothy smile, and the feeling it gave him was enough to send his heart racing.

Quran 71:10-12 (Prophet Nuh Quote)

فَقُلْتُ اسْتَغْفِرُوا رَبَّكُمْ إِنَّهُ كَانَ غَفَّارًا (10) يُرْسِلِ السَّمَاءَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِدْرَارًا (11) وَيُمْدِدْكُمْ بِأَمْوَالٍ وَبَنِينَ وَيَجْعَلْ لَكُمْ جَنَّاتٍ وَيَجْعَلْ لَكُمْ أَنْهَارًا (12)

and I said: “‘Ask your Sustainer to forgive you your sins - for, verily, He is all-forgiving! He will shower upon you heavenly blessings abundant, and will aid you with worldly goods and children, and will bestow upon you gardens, and bestow upon you running waters.

oh my god can you please tell us about the last time sophia's daddy met one of uncle geno's girlfriends? please please please?

okay, so this happened right before the beginning of training camp this season.

Sophia loves September. Loves it. Not just because it’s her birthday either, but because September means that summer is over and it’s time to come back to Pittsburgh. It means she gets to see all her friends and family, and most importantly of all, it means she gets to see her uncle Geno.

It feels like it’s been especially long since she’s seen him this year.

Even Daddy is excited about seeing Uncle Geno again. Sophia overheard him say so. He’s been on the phone with Uncle Flower a lot, talking about how this year is the year he’s going to tell Uncle Geno how he feels.

Sophia’s not sure exactly what that means or why Daddy would want to tell Uncle Geno how he’s feeling (unless he’s feeling sad. Then she gets it; Uncle Geno gives the best hugs when she’s feeling sad), but Daddy seems happy, so she is too.

“That sounds like an easy life. No wonder your friend called you a princess.” Bellamy looked over her shoulder and Clarke turned her head to the side to see Murphy saluting her with his drink.

It seemed she hadn’t been the only one to hear his comment.

She was about to give Bellamy a talk down about how no, Alpha station or not, she hadn’t been privileged at all (because nothing screamed elite like getting thrown into prison and having your dad floated for treason) when something else caught her attention.

“Wait,” she frowned and caught Bellamy’s amused gaze. “You know what a princess means?”

It was the wrong thing to say.

At once his expression closed off and the humor in his eyes got replaced by anger. Chills ran down Clarke’s neck as she watched him sneer and the friendly banter got forgotten. His whole body was strung tight like a bow ready to snap and snap he did.

“I may not have grown up in a castle among the clouds, but that doesn’t mean I’m stupid, princess.”

Bellamy went to push his chair back, but Clarke gripped his arm and held tight.

“Would you fucking stop doing this?” She narrowed her eyes and glared, her anger rising in response to his.

Why is the weapon
more important than the wound?
Why examine it for clues
to its clockwork motivation?

when the wound
needs your attention
when the wound
has not begun
to heal

Why do we
continually, almost absentmindedly
poke and prod the wound
reveling in it’s infection
it’s oozing pus and pain
then berate the wound
for its inability
to close?

Important Daily Reminders:
  • If we follow Christ, we are commanded to love people - no matter who they are.
    “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:34-35)
  • None of us are perfect.
    “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
  • Before you judge others, remember you’ve made mistakes too.
    “And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?” (Matthew 7:3)
  • Despite our sins and mistakes, Jesus came to save each and every person.
    “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
  • Forgiveness and new life is available if we ask.
    “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)
  • Nothing can separate us from God’s love.
    “For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)
  • God is with us in our trials.
    “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)

Terrorism and Islam :

  1. Who started the 1st world war? Not Muslims.
  2. Who started the 2nd world war?  Not Muslims.
  3. Who killed about 20 millions of Aborigines in Australia?  Not Muslims.
  4. Who sent the nuclear bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki?  Not Muslims.
  5. Who killed than 100 millions of Indians in South America?  Not Muslims.  
  6. Who killed more than 50 milions of Indians in North America?  Not Muslims.
  7. Who took about 180 millions of African people as slaves and 88% of them died and were thrown in Atlantic Ocean?  Not Muslims.

Muslim is not a terrorist :

  1. When America takes 1 million lives in Iraq for oil? Not terrorism?
  2. When Serbs rape Muslims women in Kosovo / Bosnia? Not terrorism?
  3. When Russians killed 200.000 Chechens in bombings? Not terrorism?

  5. When American drones kill entire family in Afghanistan / Pakistan? Not terrorism?
  6. When Israel killed 10.000 Lebanese civilians due to 2 missing soldiers?Not terrorism?

First of all, you have to define terrorism properly.

“Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors.” (Surah Al - Maidah verse 32)
