Give A Helping Hand

I am a soon-to-be environmentalist, a tree-hugger, a recycler, an earth-loving teen who wants there to be a brighter (and cleaner) tomorrow.

Knowing what could happen in the future with global warming makes me want to help. Help make this world a better place for everyone.

Anyone can help. Just by recycling, reducing, and reusing you can make a difference. And I'm not going to stop there.

I want to invent. Invent things to filter car pollution, save the trees, cut down on plastic water bottles and much much more!

I want to be government. Create laws to ban plastic bags, enforce littering fines, make earth day last all year round. And I plan to pursue my dreams!

I want our home, earth, to be here for further generations, and for it to be a healthy place to live. Instead of concentrating on the problems we've created, I want to focus on how I can fix them for a greener future! We can all give a helping hand.

Holy Holes

Holes can be in the heart from a break-up, in the soul from a loss, in the mind from a failure.

We need to fill them to continue on with our journey. Fill them with love, God's love.

Though not all of these holes are completely bad. God also gives us holes to make us stronger. To teach us life lessons. In the big picture, they have purpose and meaning.

We don't always understand their purpose in our life. We just see the problems that God allows to take place. Then we question these holes, these problems. Sometimes we get mad at God, but really, God is trying to help us grow. Eventually we realize that all these obstacles are helping holes . . . holy holes.

Fun is like beauty. It's definition can only be determined by the eye of the beholder.

For me, fun is climbing a tree in my front yard, going to the mall with a BFF, eating a foot-long hot dog and drinking a milkshake when dressed up as a pizza delivery person, reading stories to 20 little campers, listening to Britt Nicole in my room as I make a doll with my friend, watching a movie in the theaters as I eat popcorn, going to Chinatown with my family to buy yummy buns from a bakery, learning more about God at my VBS camp, and blogging about my writing and waiting for comments! That's my fun.

What is your fun?

What Money Can't Buy

Money is used for lots of things,
Food, clothes, puzzles and dolls,
They are all items that can be found,
In many shopping malls.

But compassion, trust and love,
Have no cost, fine, or fee.
They aren’t your average product,
They are more important you see.

No one can put them in your hand,
No one can take them away,
They can never be lost,
You’ll have them day after day.

They can’t be purchased or sold.
Or can be a generous loan,
These very special qualities,
You have to find on your own.

All these qualities make you rich,
Even though you may not own a dime.
If you have these you’ll be blessed,
With wonderful things in time!
