Bullying

Bullying

I heard a story once about a girl who was bullied because of facial scars and deformities. She would always look down on herself for not being beautiful in others’ eyes and never wanted anyone to leave her out. She was picked on but she stayed strong in her faith and was able to stand righteous. She stood up to the bullies and eventually they backed down. Eventually she learned how you are always beautiful in God’s eyes, and how you can always stand tall in the face of the devil. [more]

I jumped two feet in the air as the alarm bell blared. It was 3rd period; Library aid and therefore it was unusual for me to hear an annoying, ear rattling, UNNECESSARILY LOUD, fire bell SHATTERING MY EARDRUMS!

The librarian came out and guided the students in the room who didn’t know where to go; outside and onto the track; our position for fire drills. [more]

I ran around the room grabbing at everything that looked interesting. I just drank a full cup of coffee and I could not calm down. I was so energized I put on my running shoes and started a run.

I started walking as I trudged back to the house. [more]

Blooming in the Hurricane

Blooming in the Hurricane

In 1900, a hurricane hit Galveston Texas, wiping out one-sixth of the entire population. Because of that, the city built a sea wall in case it ever happened again. Well, it was a good idea because in 2000 another hurricane struck the town, but after each one, everything grew back. All the plants, trees, and even most of the population. [more]

Running into God

Running into God

As I walked down the aisle, I spotted my friend in the checkout lane. When I started to walk over she saw me. We exchanged greetings and talked. I did not even know she was in town. Apparently, she was attending a conference I was also going to the next day. [more]
