Blanket

The Blanket brought warmth to a homeless man

The Blanket provided comfort to a scared little girl

The Blanket soared behind a curious superhero

The Blanket was a place mat for a picnicking family

The Blanket became clothing for a new born baby

The Blanket made a tent for some campers

And the Blanket of His love gave me life.

Rough Not Tough

A vandal

A thief

A criminal

In a town

In YOUR town.

Jini grew scared

Frightened

By the reporter’s words.

She goes up to her room

Sits in silence

Until . . .

A noise

A roar

Interrupts

Disturbs

Her thoughts.

She looks out her window

To see a man

On a motorcycle.

He looks rough

Wild hair

Black leather jacket

Hard face.

Could he be

The criminal?

He stops

Grabs a bag

Begins to search for something.

Jini wonders

What is he looking for?

A gun?

A knife?

A bat?

Then a small

Worn

Brown book

Appears in the man’s hand

With the words

Holy Bible on the cover.

He opens the book

Reads aloud.

In shock, Jini steps back,

Regretful

Feeling truly sorry.

She realized what she’s done.

She judged this man,

This stranger

Because of his appearance.

It turns out

Rough isn’t so tough after all.

How Blessed I Am

I sit here writing on my laptop, which I am very grateful for, and think about how many people on this Earth have a computer too. In this country, that's a lot! But compared to the world, having a computer is a privilege. Hey, having a toilet is a privilege! I am very thankful for my family, friends, a safe and comfy house, to be able to go to school, and so many other great things!

Whenever I am hungry, I can just walk over to the fridge and grab a snack. It is sad to think that some people around the world are dying because they don't have food.

Living in a developed country can make you forget that the lifestyle you live, the things in your bedroom, aren't everyday things for everyone.

Thinking about these things make me want to help in some way, reach out to them and tell them to have faith, hope, and that there is a light, that shines even in the darkest of times!

After thinking about everything, it really opens my eyes to how blessed I am!

No One But Him

No one can mend a broken heart
No one can fix, what has fallen apart

No one can settle a raging wave
No one can foretell the acts of the brave

No one can perfect the Shepherd’s sheep
No one can create oceans as deep

No one can cause us to rise from the dead
No one can give food to who need to be fed

No one can make the blind see
No one can give you eternity

No one can turn water to blood
No one can dry out a massive flood

No one can cleanse the heart of sin
No one can know what's truly within

No one can know what tomorrow will bring
No one can do these, but Him

The Future is Friendly . . . Or is it?



The future has many great things in store for us! New technology, cures, discoveries, and much much more!

But have you ever thought of some of the other things that could await us in the future? There could be more violence, destruction, poverty, and as you have heard many times, global warming.

With the rising population, food, and water, and even air could cause wars between once peaceful countries.

Now I'm not trying to make you feel all depressed, and bring out the negative, but who really knows what the future will be like? Should we be scared? Thrilled? I think the only thing we can try to be is prepared. And to be prepared, we need God. He knows what our next step will be in our journey. He knows everything!

So what is my point exactly? We have to keep God closer than ever because He will help us with whatever happens in the future. He will always be there for us!
