With a constant drip-drop the rain pours down, decorating the library windows.

It hammers on the roof, making ears aware to the downpour outside.

Students run to the nearest buildings to avoid the wet drops that fall from the gray clouds.

Walking through it I don't hurry like all the others.

I watch the sparrows flit from the trees, flying to the nearest shelter.

The leaves quiver from the giant wet plops.

Clouds cover the sky, making it dark and dreary.

I lift my face to the clouds, walking at a slower pace.

The fifty degree weather is welcomed after two weeks of below freezing.

The sun is there the whole time, trying to peep through the gray thickness and remove the darkness.

A girl comments “It would be great outside if it wasn't raining.”

We all know that standing behind the heavy clouds is a bright glowing sun trying to get through.

It never gives up.

A Son that never gives up, and no, I didn't misspell.


You are me: walking through everything thing in life, taking time to “Smell the flowers.”

The clouds and rain is our pain.

And Jesus is the sun.

Never giving up, always constant, trying to peep into our life and and make the dark, cold pain go away.

The problem:

We rarely let Him in.

So, will you take the challenge and let God into your life.

Will you let him remove the pain from your life, and make you new?

Don't let it pass

You raise me up so I can stand on mountains 

The God of all creation.

What were we created for?

So many of us forget... We spend our day going through the norm.

You raise me up to more than I can be.

He has gifted us with salvation: a chance to spend eternity with him.

Think of living forever.

With someone who loves you unconditionally.

The King of Kings.

You raise me up to walk on stormy seas.

Our God,

Is Amazing.









I am strong when I am on your shoulders.

Never forget who He is, and don't let a day go by without praising him.

Not perfect

The church pew digs into my back making me rearrange myself. The pews in front of me are filled with kids of all ages. Laughter bounces off the walls as someone cracks a joke. A paper airplane flies over my head and a little boy chases after it. I listen to the boys boast about their achievement in video games, and girls chatter about the latest music, and clothes. Someone looks back and notices me in my pew.Offering a small smile I acknowledge him and go back to my homework. The TV is turned on. 
Heads shot up and everyone turns to face the screen. Silence echoes through the room. 

The entertainment is over and I walk down stairs to the kitchen. The older boys follow me down the steps for audition callbacks. Half of them look revealed that it's almost over and the other half look they just ate a frog. They head down to the basement with anxiousness and dread. I settle into my new study spot: another church pew. A little person comes over and sits next to me, smiling and watching me  type. She gets bored and flits away to her mom. Distraction enters my mind and I listen to the mom's conversations: hamburgers, broken arms, auditions, movies, teens, and purses. They notice me and smile.

I haven't wrote anything in ages. Thus the life a college student. So.. here is a prop I recently wrote for class.---------

“If you need to use the bathroom or want something to eat we're stopping at McDonald's in 5!” our Youth pastor shouted from the front of the van. Lilly, Martin and I huddled under the blanket in the
middle seat. We roused from our positions. Sleep. That is all any of us wanted. Pulling into the parking
lot I looked at Lilly over Martin's head, his curly hair making it impossible to see Lilly on the other
“Do you have to go?” mumbling in non-cohesive voice
“Nope”, she replied in the same tone
Martin laughed, “ Well, I need coffee and food so I'm getting out!”

Lilly moved out of the way and Martin squeezed by. We looked at each other and giggled. We both
knew what the other was thinking: steal his blanket! We each grabbed the end of it and huddled
underneath making it impossible to see us. I leaned up against the window thinking “If I'm this giddy already and it's not even 10 o'clock yet, I should have grabbed some source of caffeine...”

Martin returned with enough food to feed an army, along with a cup of coffee. He took one glance at
us and knew he wasn't getting his blanket back. Lilly and I giggled either from the sleep deprivation or
his facial expression. He sat down and sipped his coffee, burning his tongue in the process. Lilly
glanced at his coffee, and shouted full of exuberance “Martin! Your coffee cup has free WIFI!” Mouth
full of food, Martin looked at me with raised eyebrows and I pointed at his coffee. On the side of his
cup it had the “WIFI” symbol. He looked at it and nearly choked.
Everything is funny when you're tired. 

Now that I've finally put something up here, I'm going to go back to doing homework, and drinking Mountain Dew to stay awake.

Sorry that the formats weird.. I'm too tired to fix it.....
