Little Giants and power

Loneliness had gripped me. In two years, five of my roommates were married, not to mention countless other friends, and I was tired of being left behind. At times I hurt so badly I would fall on my knees and beg God through tears to take my pain away. What I didn’t know then, was that God was using that pain to bring me to the sweetest love affair of my life, but it wasn’t by bringing me a man to fall in love with; it was by making me more like the Man who already loved me.
Sometimes, the thing we want most is the very thing we can’t have… because God wants to give us something infinitely better.
He wants to give us Himself.
He wants to be the thing we want most of all.

My favorite memory is being cast, because i had been auditioning for another part, the Limo Driver (I think) and there was a mixup, he wanted me to play this OTHER role of a Hong Kong film director - and the role had a very heavy accent, and I went in and auditioned, and said - and this is early in my career - I went in and auditioned, but I quietly thought to myself “I don’t want to do this role in a kid’s comedy, with an accent, because I don’t want young people laughing at an accent inadvertently.” I know they weren’t intending to make fun of the accent, but I didn’t want to risk it.
So I was offered the role after the audition and I politely declined, and they asked why, and I told them. And I heard word that the director said “Well, we’ll get rid of the accent then. Come in and we’ll develop a different character.” So I went back in with Shawn Levy, and we developed a new take on the character, he pitched it to the studio, and so I had no business doing anything at that point in my career, but he and I are friends - I bumped into him recently, and for him he says it was his first feature, and it was really awesome from HIS perspective that it was a good reminder that actors need to feel invested and the importance of collaboration, but for ME it was important that someone understood where I was coming from politically as far as representation of Asian-Americans."

In a recent re-launch of the Amazing Spider-Man series, she was introduced as a classmate of Peter Parker’s.
Like Parker, her life is transformed when a radioactive spider bites her and grants her superpowers.
Unlike her famous counterpart, she’s an Asian-American woman, making her one of the few heroes of color — let alone female heroes of color — in the entire Marvel universe.
This is especially remarkable in light of recent news: Moon, otherwise know as Silk, will be given her own comic series starting in 2015.

I’m 27 years old and I’ve never had a boyfriend. I’ve only dated once but that didn’t go so well. I’ve prayed and I’ve prayed and I’ve asked God for my significant other but honestly sometimes I feel as if God doesn’t hear me. Which then causes my heart turmoil especially…
For all my sisters and brothers who have been despairing: You are significant without a significant other.Source: jspark3000
