* As my chapter in Hong Kong draws to a close, there has been countless bittersweet moments and endless memories that I still can’t believe it’s happening. The journey has been the toughest one yet but God’s grace and provision has sustained me through it. Even though I’ve been in the wilderness for so long, He’s taking me out of it, bringing me into the new land as He’s promised. I’m honestly feeling a mixture of terrified, scared, nervous and anxious but also excited and at peace for what’s yet to come. It’s the scariest thing ever to move my whole life in Hong Kong to a place where I’ve longed to be for the longest time since I graduated university there. There are so many uncertainties that I can’t even begin to comprehend but I’m trusting God so much with my life. I trust His provision, guidance and His loving goodness and kindness that He is the great I AM. So here’s to taking a leap of faith and stepping into the unknown. Here’s to going the new season, new adventures and going back home. ✈️🇬🇧 P.S. This pic was taken on the plane coming back from England to HK last summer! Talk about reverse full circle 😂 and as a “Naomi-esque” thing to do: here’s a sunset 🌅 xxxx
Welcome #creeps to an evening edition of #flatlinetvmythandmurdermonday. We've talked before about the #eeriness of urban legends, #spookystories designed to teach a lesson or just generally #scare a person. One usually doesn't take into account that most legends, #myths and #scarystories are based in truth. This isn't to say that all stories a person hears is true. But tonight, I have a couple tales, you'd wish weren't true...
The creepy story “The Hills Have Eyes” was loosely based off historical records in the #UnitedKingdom . There are two different families that lived in caves in the hills of the U.K. The most famous being #SawneyBeane who bore 8 sons and 6 daughters, with a great number of grandchildren. The documents say that the family killed more than 1,000 people in the 16th century. The people were killed and used for food. The other family was run by a man called Christie Cleek. In times of hardship, he took to the hills and would survive off of unsuspecting travelers.
Another well known legend stops in various towns across the country. A popular attraction, the carnival fun-house will always stop you dead in your tracks. But pay close attention to the decor... that mummy is not just an #urbanlegend . In #spookyhouses there is always the allure of the #mummies or #scarycorpses . Elmer McCurdy, an outlaw was allegedly mummified by a malicious person whom he owed a debt, and promptly sold to a fun-house. The actual details of his death are fuzzy because no one wants to admit to killing him. However, they have said that he was shot. He was discovered in 1976 by the “Six Million Dollar Man”, starring Lee Majors, set crew while setting up at the haunted house at the Nu-Pike Amusement Park in Long Beach, Calif.
