Compassion and Grace ~ A Journal Entry

Recently, I found a passage in the Bible that really touched me. The whole chapter is Isaiah 54. As someone who struggles with perfectionism, I often times tend to see God almost as a dictator. I find myself often thinking, oh no, I just thought that. And that thought usually ends up going in the…… Continue reading Compassion and Grace ~ A Journal Entry

Behind These Icy Walls ~ A Narrative Poem

Little girl, she does not know of the gift she has been given. Something no one understands, a mystery to be hidden. Different from the start, with her blonde locks and blue eyes, The magic that flows through her veins, what she will come to despise. Little girl, she laughs and plays with a brightly…… Continue reading Behind These Icy Walls ~ A Narrative Poem

The Bird of Hope ~ A Journal Entry

I’ve always loved to write. Even from a young age, I would staple and tape my own paper books together. Besides story-telling though, I also enjoy writing poetry. Songs, I believe, are a form of poetry. They are poetry with music. The hymn ‘Amazing Grace,’ after all, did not always have music accompanying it. I…… Continue reading The Bird of Hope ~ A Journal Entry

Brer Rabbit’s Trap

Note: For my Creative Writing class, we had to write our own story with the characters from the Brer Rabbit tales. It was a mighty fine summer day, that day that Brer Rabbit got it into his devious mind to play a prank on Brer Fox. He’d been think’in, he had, on this prank of…… Continue reading Brer Rabbit’s Trap

Journal Entry 5

Many years ago, my family and I went to the Red Wood Forest in San Francisco, California. It was beautiful. The trees were massive – reaching as far up into the sky as they possibly could in all of their natural finery. Despite the cold temperature (who knew it could be cold in the summer?),…… Continue reading Journal Entry 5

Journal Entry 3

When I first started homeschooling, I quickly learned that I had a problem: procrastination. At the private school, I had previously attended, every day there would be reminders of what was due and instant consequences if something was late. However, with homeschooling, that was not exactly the case. I had to remind myself of what…… Continue reading Journal Entry 3

Metaphors and the Bible

For my second creative writing assignment, we were tasked to come up with our own three metaphors – similar to Matthew 5:14-16 – and modernize the verses into our own words. As a comparison, here is the original: “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither…… Continue reading Metaphors and the Bible
