God's Not DeadHello everyone!! I hope you're all having an awesome day! I just watched the movie God's Not Dead, and it was wonderful. I recommend it if you're looking for something to watch, you can get the DVD from Netflix.

Now I am not going to attempt and address every possible scenario out there, I simply want to ask you something based on my own experiences. Stop using this saying, please. I will explain why I ask this. Now I realize there are some Christians that come off as strong, and even demanding. And there are plenty of nasty people that parade around as Christians, I've met a few. But most of us are not being mean, nasty, or belittling when we attempt to guide you to Jesus. Far from it actually.

A Dark Horse Dreaming- PrologueThe nightmare started out simply enough. Hallon found himself in a dark place empty of any light, sounds, smells, or objects. The darkness was stifling and it pressed against him as though the air was made of dense cotton. Immediately, he knew where he was. He was in a nightmare.More Like This
The darkness suddenly tore down its middle like a great seam being undone. Blindingly colorless light immediately gushed from the opening and his eyes smarted, watering at their edges.
No, not again.
The light bled out until there was no darkness. Everything suddenly felt blaring and obnoxious and a longing for returning to the quiet blackness rubbed his insides sore.
Please, not again!
A mysterious, gray-purple shape formed from where the darkness had been cut. At first it was small, just a shimmering disturbance in the light. But then it began to grow. It grew at an alarming rate. Hallon felt his heart begin to beat faster and faster.
No. No. Stay away from me!
His voice was lost in the light. The shape grew
