I stared at the math problem with confusion. I knew we learned how to solve it but I was so tired I had forgotten everything. I had tried three different systems and none had matched with the possible multiple choice answers. Then I remembered how to do it. I picked my pencil back up and started writing. It didn’t take long for me to complete the problem and make sure it was correct. I turned in the quiz and walked out of class on my way to lunch.
With quivering movements, I put my pencil to the page and begin the first stroke. I continued until the piece is almost complete. Then I began the shading; under the eye, the neckline, then finally the hair. The paper transformed from a blank page with a single stroke into a piece of art. Our first stroke is our first breath. Each breath we take adds to our piece of art. Just imagine, a hallway filled with incomplete canvases. Some are nearly blank while others are almost complete.
Sometimes the smallest thing can grow into something magnificent. When we are willing to grow, we can teach others how to plant seeds for God. All it takes is one to turn into a million. ~ Bryce Bengtson
Pop music is everywhere; that’s what makes it pop. Pop is an interesting music genre with people on both sides of the fence and few people left teetering on the edge of the fence. I personally love pop music if not the words in them. What would happen around us if we infiltrated pop culture and flooded it with praise songs and worship that honor God and offer hope?
