The Love I Feel For God

Hey, Everyone! Have you ever found the English language lacking before? Like it just wasn’t deep enough for what you were talking about? As I was trying to describe how I felt about God, I found the word “love” wasn’t enough. It was incomplete. So I decided to specify—with poetry, of course!

A New Chapter

Hey, Folks! How are you? You’ll have to pardon this scatter-brained post – we’ve been painting maniacs for the last couple weeks, and I just can’t seem to get my ducks in a row. (I just love that phrase. Isn’t it hilarious?) It’s funny how closely life aligns with a book. Both have plots; both have conflicts. Some end well; some don’t. The story unfolds, page by page, with heroes, grief, […]

A Little Poetry

A Little Poetry

Hey, Folks! How’s your week going? I wrote a couple of poems and I’d love for you to take a look! Morning Tinted blue, and soft and cold, The sunlight tinged with starry gold, A quiet dawn forever pulled My heart back to the morning.   The Trees Dark, their silhouettes stood out, against impending night, As if, by holding out their arms, they’d snatch the fading light. They longed to […]

Light

Light

Hi, Folks. How’s your year going so far? I’m here today with a free verse poem called “Light.” 💡 I’d love for you take a peek! Light The selfishness. It scares me as I watch it display itself greedily. No one is noble. The darkness. It blinds me. It closes in, crushing me. I am alone. Empty. Scared. The anger comes, and the horror that I cannot control it. The pain. It […]

What I Learned About Life – A 14-Year-Old’s Reflection On 2015

Hi, Everyone! Are you excited for the New Year? 2016 is coming fast, and it’s thrilling! This past year has been a gigantic year of change for me. After starting high-school and work simultaneously in the fall, life felt as if it hit me all at once. For the first time, I was actually finding myself with a schedule I had to follow! I’d love to share with you the basic things I […]

My “Thank You” List

Thanksgiving. What a wonderful day. Besides the fact that you get to stuff yourself with amazing food, hang out with the cousins and have more than one dessert, it’s such a great reminder to be thankful for the good things in our lives. I’d love to share with you a few a lot of the things that I’m thankful for. 🙂

When the Outside Came In

“When The Outside Came In”

Hello! How is your week going? Are you enjoying autumn so far? Except for the chilliness, I love the color and crunch of fall! Today, October 28, is a very (very) special day for Anna – she’s eight! Happy birthday, Anna-nana! 😉 I wrote this free verse about the outdoors, because I have a certain enthrallment with the mystery of it all.

Colossians 3:12-15

12 Since God chose you to be the holy people He loves, you must clothe yourselves with: tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. 14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace that comes from […]
