Journeys, Spiritual, Virtual, and Physical

Then Jesus went from village to village, teaching the people. And he called his twelve disciples together and began sending them out two by two, giving them authority to cast out evil[c] spirits. He told them to take nothing for their journey except a walking stick—no food, no traveler’s bag, no money.
~Mark 6:6b-8

My sister left for a college tour of England, Scotland, and Ireland, which is twelve days long in all.  I couldn't go because I didn't have the money and I still had school to do.  The day after she left was my birthday, the first birthday I had without her. :(
But I will have my own journey, putting down my burdens at the feet of Jesus, and letting him take care of me.  I know he has something wonderful for me.  I think it is joy, but I had to let go of the burdens before I could hear him.
I am sleeping in my sister's room while she is gone, and it is peaceful, almost as if she is here.  The reason for me sleeping in her room is because I am painting my room to make it look like Ireland, the Emerald Isle.  My birthstone is an emerald, so that makes the dream to go to Ireland even more important.  It is like I am destined to go there one day.  My father once went to Europe, so it isn't impossible.  I may go there with me family one day, once I finish me books and edit them and self-publish them.  That way I will bring them along with me to give away.  This will show that I'm not writing for the money, but to touch people with another world.  That would be so cool if the very first place the books were sold was in Ireland.  
Anyway.  There is this one game called Journey that looked epic.  It is a ps3 game(sadly I don't have one) and is only a download game.  You have to download it from online.
But it begins in a beautiful desert, smooth sand everywhere, and someone who is beginning a journey.  No words, no violence.  Just a journey to the top of a beautiful mountain.  People have cried as they finish it.  The soundtrack is amazing.  The ending is worth it.
The game only takes up to seven or eight hours to finish, they say.   
I wrote eleven pages straight in the third/second book of my series.  I haven't found the perfect name for it yet.  Chosen Royals, royal Chosen, Royal Fairies, Royal Faerie Chronicles(ooh, that's cool), something.  Ink drop Chronicles.  Royal Faerie Tales.  I don't know.  The Fading Stories... no.  Greenvine Manuscripts, no.  I'm trying to find a name that sounds good in an American accent so that it doesn't have to be said in an English accent in order for it to sound cool.
Royal Flyers, Royal Revelations... I'm just brainstorming now.
If you have any ideas, just post below! 
God bless you on your Journey. :)
