'I love weird quirky girls!' What weird girls... - 8 Real Photographs That Prove Hell Exists on Earth A wise and sagely woman once posited that heaven is a place on a Earth.

“Stuff No One Told Me” fun illustrations There are several things in life that you already know and have learned but you seem to forget it because no one tells and reminds you of them. Illustrator Alex from Barcelona has introduced these type of statements by making cute and funny illustrations. You will probably agree with a lot of them. Speaking of illustrations, another artist has used them to try to express how “the perfect world” could be. An illustration is a displayed visualization form presented as a drawing, painting, photograph or other work of art that is created to elucidate or dictate sensual information (such as a story, poem or newspaper article) by providing a visual representation graphically.

Scraps From the Table Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering terribly from demon-possession.” Jesus did not answer a word. One of Jesus’ rare excursions into Gentile territory took place near Tyre, a city which is now in Lebanon. When people are afflicted with persistent illness, they often try anything to get rid of it. So in many cases when desperate people come to Jesus for help, He makes them examine their motives: in effect, He asks them, “Do you really believe that I can do this, or am I just another copper bracelet?” So Jesus asks the Canaanite woman if it is really proper for a Jewish rabbi to give Jewish things to a gentile; in other words, is it proper to take the children’s food and give it to the dogs? So Jesus cast the demon out of her daughter. Note in passing that it is the petitioner, not the sick person, who needs to have faith.
