Nearer, My God, To Thee - day 26

#26 - this is all about patience. in this world of instant connection, communication, gratification, and food-ication, we want things now! if we can't buy it, we charge our credit cards. we have to have it now. but the Lord isn't all about now. in fact, he usually is about later. He knows what is best for us, and it usually teaches us patience. i know it will be hard, but just go with it. i have looked back and seen that the way the Lord answers prayers is not the way i expected, or at the time i expected. but i look back and it is such a precise answer to my prayer and better than i could ever have hoped. "knock on the sky and listen to the sound." and the sound might be quite different than you thought it would be.

heaven is

why am i content in pain? i am stronger, choose to smile. i count my blessings and think of others first. being a friend to some one is better than being your own friend first. laughing even when it hurts does more for your situation than crying. tears are lonely and useless. immerse yourself in life, in your emotions and the feeling of now. we are teenagers. we never die. :) we all live for a moment. we live for the day. we live to love.

the starting line

i have lost my spark. somewhere i lost it. my drive, my passion. my joy to live. i know it's hiding somewhere. it is when we are broken that we find what we care about. i feel like i will find it soon. that my writing will become who i am and not just who i want to be. i will wake up in the morning and feel like i use to. excited, ready, willing. my ideas will be inspiration, not just recycles. i will wake up one morning and find what i lost.

Nearer, My God, To Thee - day 25

#25 - you are you. and even when you try something different (#24) you are still you. no one should tell you who to be or how to act. i have a friend that i think gets embarrassed about if what she is doing is cool or not. who cares!? if you like country music, like it. (i actually hate it... very much) you don't have to be anyone for anyone. if you're loud, be loud. don't hide your personality. don't be one person around your friends and then another person around your other friends. be true to yourself. it's annoying when people act like someone they're not. don't like a food just because your best friend likes it. she wont hate you for not liking it. you're different. who wants to be the same?

that's sooo cliche! - creative writing

That’s sooo cliché!

It dawned on me that
I don't know how to break this to you
But.... I have half a mind
To give you a piece of my mind.
I know that every cloud has a silver lining,
And that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel
But this is a whole new ball game.
You make me crazy
You really get my goat
I know you hear no evil
So tell me if I’m barking up the wrong tree
But you’re always lying like a rug
This is small potatoes considering the fact that
You are as proud as a peacock
And the bigger they come, the harder they fall
So you should be ready to bite the bullet
Because I would be pleased as punch
If you would hit the road
You might be sick as a dog for leaving
But you are as hard as nails
As solid as a rock,
And time is a cure
But it’s a cardinal sin to
Cry over spilt milk
This too, shall pass.
you're young, you'll get over it

Behold your little ones

In our logic, we loose the magic. In our learning, we loose the faith. In our being taught what's right, we loose our imagination. In our knowledge we loose our wisdom.

Nearer, My God, To Thee - day 24

#24 - We are all somebody: a jock, a flirt, the smartypants, whathaveyou, but there was always somebody else you wanted to be. So be that someone else. I'm not saying totally be fake and ditch your friends and get a new wardrobe, but if you've always wanted to be an artist, try it! You might find that you're really good at it. Maybe you want to be less of a gossip like your best friend whatsherface. Try it. This part of your life is to figure out who you are. We are all unsure. We all have no idea what we're doing. (huh, life? This is my first time... You?) we are all pretty much freaked out of our minds. So unless you were a snail in a previous life, I'm pretty sure you are an insecure teenager like me (I don't know if snails can be teenagers but all the ones I have met have been pretty insecure) so wear cowboy boots, lipstick and a tinkerbell backpack, try being something you're not, (but still be true to your standards and stuff;) be fresh to deth.

who we are

people are creatures of love and hate. they need love. they need the feeling that someone cares and would be willing to put you above their ego and selfish desires. can we only love once? what a joy to think that no matter how many times you break off a bit of your love and give it to some one else, your supply is never empty.  love is the only thing that increases as you give it away. but we must learn to love. the natural man would put his wants and needs above helping and loving others. to find and learn love, we must listen to our souls. our souls are pure and want what's right over what's comfortable. we must learn to love wholly, unconditionally, and universally. to accept and search for love. love is something we knew completely in a different life, but now true love feels like trying to remember a dream. almost there, but slipping. but i dream of it every night. i know it's there. my job now is to have faith, take a stand, walk up to the edge, and jump in.

lyrics of the day! better days - goo goo dolls

if you haven't noticed yet... i have a MAJOR thing for the goo goo dolls. ;)

And you ask me what I want this year
And I try to make this kind and clear
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days
Cuz I don't need boxes wrapped in strings
And desire and love and empty things

Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud

Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again

And it's someplace simple where we could live
And something only you can give
And thats faith and trust and peace while we're alive
And the one poor child that saved this world
And there's 10 million more who probably could
If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them

I wish everyone was loved tonight
And somehow stop this endless fight
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again

Nearer, My God, To Thee - day 23

#23 - help someone that is in a worse situation that you. there is always someone having a harder time than you are. we are always so wrapped up in ourselves that we don't see others that need our strength and our experiences. sometimes, when you are going through a difficult time, it seems less painful to just curl up somewhere and avoid people. isolating yourself only gives you more pain. the way to forget, forgive, and move on is to involve yourself, be humble enough to accept help and listen to advice, and -most of all- we need to reach out to others. God answers our prayers, but it is usually through other people. you need to be that other person. remember what's happened, be happy about what's happening, and be ready and excited for where you will be.

Lyrics of the day! On the Brightside - Nevershoutnever

I met a man of two feet tall
This man was quite ambitious
In a world that is so vicious to us all
I said, "Hi," as he replied
He said, "Listen to these words
That I have lived by my whole life

"You're only as tall as your heart will let you be
And you're only as small as the world will make you seem
When the going gets rough and you feel like you may fall
Just look on the brightside - you're roughly six feet tall"

I met a man of 12 feet tall
He towered like a giant
In a world that was defiant of his height
I said, "Hi," as he replied
He said, "Listen to these words
That I have dreaded my whole life

"You're only as tall as your heart will let you be
And you're only as small as the world will make you seem
When the going gets rough and you feel like you may fall
Just look on the brightside - you're roughly six feet tall."

I am a man of six feet tall
Just looking for some answers
In a world that answers none of them at all
I'll say, "Hi," but not reply
To the letters that you write
Because I found some peace of mind

Cause I'm only as tall as my heart will let me be
And I'm only as small as the world will make me seem
When the going gets rough and I feel like I may fall
I'll look on the brightside - I'm roughly six feet tall.

Nearer, My God, To Thee - day 22

#22 - today, this week, I want you to do something you've never done before. Life is full of chances to do something wonderful, different, new. Look around you. There are things that you are itching to try but never had the courage to do. Take a deep breath and plunge into the unknown. You never know how it will turn out until you try :) do something amazing that you will look back on and be glad you did. Try something crazy ;) carpe diem

oh what a crazy thing i did! i've never done it before... and i kinda don't know how i feel about it. haha. it was a good experience... that's all i'm going to say.

Good morning April!

i woke up and it was april. and the world was so... APRIL that i just had to stand for a while and breathe it all in. what does april have in store for me? hope... i hope. when the world wakes up and the sun remembers earth. that's april. how do we forget the miracle that will happen every spring? we know it's coming, but do we see it when it does? the clouds, hot ground, the blue, the blue, the blue. and green. with all the fake tree boughs of winter and the plastic holly, when was the last time i saw green? not a cheep replica, but the fresh green that only earth can make. ah, april :) i believe that i will heal with the earth. i hope i will. scars from winter will melt with snow and i will once again become the beautiful creation God made me as. cheers to april. :)
