Your Name is White
Your name tells people that you have good intentions and a pure heart. You try to always speak the truth.
You are happy to step back and let other people shine. You don't seek attention or acclaim.
People see you as someone who is generous and ethical. You can be counted on to do the right thing.
You are bright and clear headed. You can offer a fresh perspective, especially when other people are in a rut.

After losing his wife and daughter in a car accident, a distraught Nathaniel approaches the church for comfort, seeking the statue that is said to heal emotional distress. When the angel embodied in the statue feels the depth of Nathaniel’s pain, he makes the unusual decision to assume human form and comfort the grieving widower. But soon the angel must decide between returning to the statue to comfort others and retaining his humanity for the hope of love.
DAYS passed, and Nathaniel carried on as best he could after burying his wife and child. In the times when he felt the deepest despair, his heart was lightened by a happy memory. Sometimes a comforting presence filled the air, as if a guardian angel was watching out for him. It was during those moments that he thought of the handsome, dark-haired stranger with the kind eyes that seemed to see inside his very soul.
For all the shortness of their meeting, Nathaniel was enraptured with the being who had saved him. On the nights when he lay in bed unable to sleep, he tried to remember how the young man had come to be with him that night. All he could remember was looking up into placid eyes and the feeling of being safe. He couldn’t remember how he’d gotten home, though he assumed he’d walked, but he remembered that he’d awoken from a terrible nightmare with the man at his side. Some of the pieces just didn’t fit, and if he dwelt upon them too long, his head began to reel.
Days turned into weeks, which quickly turned into months, and Nathaniel’s hopes of seeing his savior angel again diminished until all that was left was a dull throbbing ache in his soul.

I have mixed, but primarily negative feelings towards human cloning. If you've seen the movie The Island, you'll understand. I cannot fathom making a clone of myself so that organs and whatnot could be harvested when my original ones failed. That seems so diabolical to me. I have no problem with stem cell research when taken from placental cells (or whatever it is they consider using instead of fetuses now), because I have a chronic disease that I think stem cell research would benefit. But I really can see no logical or justifiable need to create a duplicate of myself that was not biologically grown inside of my own mother as my true twin at the time of my conception.
RE: Catch a Falling Star
Review by Emily83176
Review by Elisa-Rolle
One of my friends thought that this second review might upset me because it wasn't a 'glowing' recommendation. I can't disagree with the reviewers comments though, because Catch a Falling Star was meant to come across as something you would find showing on the Hallmark Channel. (For those of you who might not know what that station is, basically they show sappy mushy love stories that leave you with tears in your eyes.) It's a feel-good Christmas story, nothing more. Her remark that Cris is naive is dead on. How many fresh college graduates do you know that aren't naive? I know I was when I was in my early/mid-twenties.
So no, I have no hard feelings to the reviewers, Kasha. ;-) *hugs*
