When filming Fred’s death, everyone was crying tears as their fake son, brother, friend died. But as Oliver (George) looked down at his own real brother and real best friend, he started choking on his sobs as he feared, ‘What if this was real?. After the director called cut, and James (Fred) sat up, Oliver threw his arms around him and cried into James’ shoulder. Everyone stepped away to give them a moment. Through the sobs, however, everyone was able to catch a simple “I love you, James!” James puts his arm around Oliver and squeezed him in a hug, “Good God, man. I’m not really dead! But I love you too.” Oliver sniffled, “I know…I just thought…what if you were?” James stayed quiet for a few moments, before tears fell from his eyes too, imagining what that must feel like. In that moment, the two brothers were never closer. ” I love you, Oliver,” James cried, hugging Oliver tightly to him. ” I love you too, James,” Oliver whimpered back, returning his tight embrace.
Convo With Mom About My Work Out
- Mom: Son, you need to stop working out.
- Me: What? Why? I'm slowly reaching my goals. I got 20 to 30 lbs left to go.
- Mom: But your legs...(Looks at my legs)
- Me: What about them? (Look at my own legs)
- Mom: They're getting veiny.
- Me: So?
- Mom: It's like your vein is going to rupture. It's like painting a target and letting someone who wants to hurt you know where to cut you with a knife.
- Me: Then hopefully my legs are strong enough to help me run away quickly before all that!
- Mom: ...
- Me: -____-
Suicide rates for veterans are high. Doctors have used a “hope box,” a physical shoe box filled with messages or objects to remind a person why it’s important to live. Now, it comes in an app. (via U.S. Military Tackles High Rate of Suicides With an App)
As the powers of darkness and light continue their fight,
You, my dear, brother, have surrendered your might.
Choosing to succumb to the monster within because of spite,
You have lost your sight.
The anger you hold is the enemy’s delight.
It rots away your soul like a tragic blight.
But our King is just and forgiving and right
All He wants is for you and Him to reunite
For He welcomes you back to His Kingdom, you, the beloved knight.
Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, “I find no pleasure in them”—
When she’s gone from the body she’ll be present with the Lord. Her body will be raised, so much Glory is in store. He is her reward…
My article in INHERITANCE magazine is dedicated to my sister, Rode, whose life was cut short at the age of 15. Although I grieved for my sister, God has restored my joy. He has blessed me with brothers in Mikey, Gabriel, and Bronson, forever changing my definition of “family.”
