“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.” -Matthew 5:14-15
How To Peace (& yep, I meant that kind of peace!) Together a Broken World
This post was hard to write. Sometimes words come out of me so easily, but then other times when tough things happen it’s like my words sizzle into nothing like water on scorching hot rock. They disappear. Click to Continue
My mom told me a story about when I was little – I hadn’t remembered it.
I was about 8-years-old when it happened. There was a girl who was a little older than me. She girl was being picked on. Older kids were throwing sticks and stones at her while calling her mean names. I walked over to this group and told them to stop it. My mom told me that the kids stopped when I told them to. When I heard this story about myself as a young child – I was happy that even though I hadn’t remembered it, I had made a difference in that girl’s life at that moment.
I guess that is always what kind of a person I’ve been. Where ever a person was being picked on I’d have a huge sense of conviction. That I needed to help them. And, I bet you can imagine, that didn’t exactly make me popular. It didn’t. And I got my share of bulling as well. There were definitely moments I had hoped someone would have stepped in like I had so many years before for that other girl in the park. Click to Continue
At the beginning of the week I got a new computer. For old times sake… I am writing this post on my old one: The Dinosaur (I will post a picture of the ole guy, below!), it will be this computer’s last post on my blog ever. Kinda a sad way to think of it, because it’s been through so much with me. It really was a time machine. When I type on this keypad – my fingers dance across the keys in harmony without stumbling or hitting any wrong keys.
It takes a while to leave an old computer behind as it’s always been home. My new computer is a Macbook Pro just like this one, but maybe this guy’s worn in-ness is what makes it so familiar. But, boy am I happy I have a new one, because the back of this one is falling apart and the trackpad works no longer. (If you’re wondering… I am using a mouse.)
Just to think of everything I did in my past with this computer…
I am so excited you are here on my new blog! I had an old blog, but decided to switch over to an actual url instead of having two website urls. The old blog can still be accessed here. Check out my latest guest post. Hope you enjoy this place of mine – my new blog home on the internet.
Follow me on my journey of writing about writing, love, life, adventure, travel, and my trek to get a literary agent & published.
