ABC Thankful

Hey, gems :) How has your week been so far? :)

I am going to a formal event this evening, and I am super super excited! Maybe I'll even see some of you there :) Winter Jam I think it's called???

So, anyways, today I figured-through many complicated trains of thought-that I would do an alphabet of things I am thankful for. :)

A-Answers to questions I can't answer myself.
B-Bible. God's word, the gospel :)
C-Clouds. I LOVE clouds. Clouds are beautiful especially at Sunset <3
D-Dancing. I can't do it, but I love to watch it. Mostly acrobatics and slow dancing, but there is so much talent out there, and I love that God gave me the ability to do all the things I want to do.
E-Experience. And all my other EXs. Ex-friends, Ex-teachers, they all give me experience.
F- Forgiveness, friends and forgiveness of friends. I literally would not be alive without my friends, so thank you so much, and forgiveness is something I need a lot, so I am thankful for that. :)
G- God. 'Nuff said. :)
H-Hannah <3 my all-time best friend. I don't know what I would do without her. :)
I-Inspiration. Love it, need it.
J-Joy. Just love it <3
K-Kendra. My cousin. One of my best friends ever <3
N-Never. I am grateful for not believing in the word never.
O-Optimism. My friend D is always happy, and he always pushes his optimism on me even if I don't want anything to do with it. :P
P-People. Love 'em. ;)
Q- Quotes. I love looking at them, and making them, and writing them down. They are just so encouraging. :)
R-Rain <3 It drives me crazy sometimes, but it melts the snow, and it's pretty :)
Y-Yellow <3 happy color :D
Z-Zoological passion

Okayyyy so that's my list. Make your own, send it to me! I would love to hear from all of you. :)

Thanks for reading!!

Have a blessed weekend :D

Doggie Days

Alright, so here's today's prompt! I got into it, and kind of just decided to keep going with it, so it's a really short story from the perspective of a dog. It's only about 700 words, but I had a lot of fun with it. If you decide to do the prompt, the challenge is to write for ten minutes, online or in a notebook, and I will list today's prompt above the story. :)

Today’s Prompt: Write a scene at a dog park. Write from the dog's POV.

Day 1:The sun is happy today. I don’t really know why, but it is looking at everything. H. is sad, though. Why is the sun happy, but H. is sad? She told me last night. She cried a lot and buried her face in my fur, but all she said to me was “It’s over”. I don’t know what’s over, but at least she didn’t mean park walks. We are going on one, now. Maz was here again today. Her owner got her nails clipped. Now she can’t dig holes very much anymore.
Oh! We’re going home, now. That was...a very short walk. I wonder what’s wrong with H.; Maybe she’ll tell me tonight.
Day 7: H. told me last night what was wrong. Someone dumped her. I don’t know what that means, but I think it has something to do with making her cry. She has been doing that a lot lately. We didn’t even go on a walk today. I miss my walks. I wonder if they hurt H....if walks hurt H., then I don’t want to go on walks anymore. I don’t like it when H. cries. Her eyes get all red, and droopy.
Day 11: H. is sad still. At least ten suns have passed, and she is still sad. I wonder if she will ever be happy again. I hope she is. She is prettier when she is happy.
Day 23: She is still sad, but I think she smiled today. Last night, she told me that maybe everything was going to get better.
Day 25: She’s going somewhere. She looks really pretty tonight. She keeps changing what she is wearing, though. Her hair is done up in that round thing on her head that she looks so nice in. Did I mention that her hair looks pretty? I like the color. Like the sun.
Later: Finally, she chose a dress! She is wearing a black one. That stuff with holes that look like flowers is on it, and it looks really nice on her. I don’t think I’ve seen her smile so big since before day 1. She says she won’t be home until late.
Day 26: She was right. She didn’t get home until the light thing had two straight lines, and two zeros. She was so happy. She didn’t cry last night.
Day 35: Someone’s coming over. I think it might be whoever she has been seeing at night. Oh! He’s here!
Later: He is handsome, and she likes him a lot. They had that stringy stuff for dinner, the one with the meat on top and the red sauce. H. gave some to me under the table. It was really good. She hasn’t fed me under the table for ages.
Day 507: She is crying again. I think this is happy crying, though. She is smiling, but tears are on her cheeks. I don’t know what to do. Should I comfort her? He’s here, too. He got on the floor, and held her hand, then she started crying. I want to know what’s happening. This is not okay with me.
He keeps hugging her. She’s laughing and crying, and...I’m confused...
Day 567: She looks so beautiful! I have never seen her look so pretty! She is wearing white, and a necklace that shimmers when she turns, and someone did her hair all nice, and she keeps touching her finger. He’s here, too. He looks really happy. H. and A.. A is his name. He looks handsome. She keeps looking at him and smiling. I want to know what’s going on.

Day 573: We’re moving! A has a new house, and it is really big and there is lots of room, and I love it. H. is so happy that I don’t think that she will ever be sad again.

Thanks so much for reading!

Blessings :)

Apple Pie Writing Prompt

Hey, everyone! Sorry about the forgotten post! I got into a lot of stuff, and ran out of time!

Here it is, now!! :)

Today’s Prompt: “Write a scene that takes place at an apple pie factory.”
“This is Susan Clandenning at the Apple Pie Factory, floor APF-328. Project has failed. Specimen is chasing me. I don’t know where he is. I found a pillar to hide behind, but I know he will find me soon. When you find this, it will be too late. The plan went wrong. The experiment went so horribly wrong. We got as far as the injection, and then the subject began to show signs of seismic attacks. We tried to help him. He killed everyone else. Now there’s just me. I don’t know what to do. Oh, god, I don’t know what to do. He’s here! Oh, god help me, he’s here! Hel-”
A cold recording device fell from Susan’s shocked fingers as her creation rose before her. He lifted his bowed head and his black locks fell away  from his face, revealing golden cat’s eyes. A scream ripped from her throat as he reached toward her. Her heart stopped within seconds.
New York slept that night more peacefully than it had in a long time, and no one knew that everything was about to change. And not for the better.
They found Susan’s body-or what was left of it-laying in the lab. The Top Secret one. The Apple Pie Factory. It wasn’t as though he had eaten her like some ungodly thing. All the body parts were there. They were simply scattered all over the building. Everyone else had only made it as far as floor APF-323. They hadn’t known. Susan had known. She had known because she warned everyone.
Susan wasn’t dead, though. When they found her body, she knew that she was alive because she was breathing. She screamed at them-the medics, the police, the president (for it was his project) but no one seemed to hear her. This must be what it’s like to die. she thought.

I didn't get any farther, but there it is. :)

Also, I found this awesome singer/pianist/ he is so cool! I had listened to him a little before, but now I listen to him and his collabs all the time :)
You guys should totally check him out.
Kurt Schneider. Here's a vid of his. I think this one is my favorite of his so far. He's at piano, and then Austin is singing :)

Alrighty, so there's today's post. Thanks for reading! If you have like ten seconds, go ahead and click that subscribe button and you will get updates and stuff whenever I post, so you can get a little more of the awesomeness ;) :P

Thanks again.

All it takes is an email address, and ten minutes a day to dedicate to writing. Here you go. I'll post what I wrote today later, but for now, here's the link. :)

Thanks for reading, gems. :)

Pinterest Pinspiration

Quick snipet of inspiration that I got from this picture.

I finally went back to the place I never would. The place I swore I wouldn't. The tunnel where I first met Cabell. I ran my fingers along the rough dirt walls. They dragged over the one white flower that protruded from the wall. It was the only thing alive down here. Even I wasn't alive.
I arrived in the room, and it dazzled me all over again just as it did every time I came here. There, sitting in the midst of a circle of candles, legs folded, fingers relaxed, eyes closed, was Cabell.
"I'm ready." I whispered.
He slowly opened his eyes, and, seeing me, jumped into action. He stumbled to a desk in the corner, and swiped up an old milk glass. 
"Here," he said, "Just fill this. We'll do it in no time." He rubbed his hands together in anticipation.
"I can't just...cry on purpose! How am I supposed to do that?"
"Just.." he sighed, thinking of the right words, "Think of the worst memories. I know! Your brother! Adamus was his name, right? Think of Adamus. When I killed him, his eyes were nearly popped out of his head with surprise. His blood splattered onto my boots."
A gasp ran unbidden from my lips and tears began cascading in white tendrils down my cheeks. "Why do you need all of these tears?" I choked out, trying to think of other sad memories... A task that was all to easy for me.

I just saw the picture and thought of this. Thanks for reading. If you have any particular inspirational pictures, please send them to me. :)

Thanks tons.

Have a blessed weekend :)

"Dear Friend..."

Okay, so today, I had one of my friends ask me why I hang out with him and the rest of the friends in our friends group, so here is why I hang out with you guys. This is not only to the three who live near me, but to all of you who get me through the hard times even if you don't know it.

Dear good friend,

I love you. I am a hurt person. I have gone through a lot, and that is why I love you. You laugh with me when I am sad, and you make me smile when I think I am going to cry. You are kind to me, and you don't ask questions when I cry, you just comfort me. It is friends like you who let me know that I am human-that I am worth it. And that is a big thing for me.
I have my own way of hurting where I can't tell anyone. If you know me, you know that I don't really like attention. I don't like being the center of it, and I don't like calling it to myself.
When I am upset, or angry, or sad, or lonely, or just need someone to talk to, I look at you, and you make me happy again.
There's no guarantee that life is going to be easy, in fact, God says that life is going to be really hard. "The world is going to hate you" he said. So when it gets rough, and I feel unwanted, or shaken up, or scared, I text you. I call you. I email you. I message you. Anything that will remind me that people love me and care about me, and that there is no need to be afraid.
I love you because you make me happy.
I love you because you are perfectly imperfect.
I love you because God made you.
I love you because you love me, and that is huge.
I can't even say all the reasons why I need you, and why I love you. If you even doubt for a second that I need you, you are dead wrong. I need you so much more than you know for so many more reasons than you know.
There are no words. We are stronger together than we could ever be apart.
I don't know what I would do without you. I might not even be here if it weren't for you, so thank you.
Thank you for loving me, because I love you.

Your friend,

Marisa <3

Seriously, though, thanks so much to all of you who listen to my problems. You guys are awesome. Even if you don't know you are helping, you are. I may not tell you, but you help me. And I don't tell you guys enough how much I love you.

Thanks so much.

Blessings <3

Tom Coverly

Alrighty, so here's the deal, gems. 

I found out today that someone I met when I was very little has a disorder called Wegener's Granulomatosis. So basically, Wegener's is a rare disorder where your blood vessels become inflamed to the point that your blood can't flow. It usually effects your Kidneys, lungs, and upper respiratory tract. 
Wegener's also produces a type of inflammatory tissue known as a Granuloma that's found around the blood vessels. Wegener's Granulomatosis can destroy normal tissue. There is no known cause for Wegener's Granulomatosis.
Early diagnosis and treatment of Wegener's Granulomatosis may lead to a full recovery. Without treatment, Wegener's Granulomatosis can be fatal, most commonly from kidney failure.
Tom has been told that it is only a matter of time before his blood vessels will become too inflamed and his heart will stop beating.
What I am trying to say, friends is that Tom "The Illusionist" Coverly is dying. He has been for a long time. This last Christmas, he went to the doctor, and they told him he was going to die. Pretty sucky Christmas, huh?
Yesterday was his birthday. His 42nd to be precise. And he posted this video that I would like all of you to watch.

I don't know about you guys, but if I heard that I was going to die, I would probably be sitting at home pitying myself, or blowing all my money.
Tom has decided to live the life that he has left to the fullest, and to live it to Christ. He made his mind up that he is not going to let this sickness take him over. He is going to use it to further reach God's people so that when Christ comes to take him home, he will hear the words "Well done, good and faithful servant".
One of these days, Tom's heart is going to stop beating and I will be there sobbing like the best of them. But the thing is, Wegener's Granulomatosis is not going to take Tom's life. God is. And I know that I would rather have Christ take my life than some disorder that most people have never even heard about
Something you should know about Tom Coverly is that he is a christian speaker about bullying. He uses Illusions to make his point. He has spoken for years about anti-bullying and suicide, and he has reached thousands upon thousands of people and hence saved many lives. For years, God has given him life so that he can save others.
Please watch. You can donate on his website, the left hand side, there are donation buttons. Click whichever amount you are willing to pay as low as 42 cents.
The money is not for Tom as you heard if you watched the video. The money is for schools that ask him to come speak. He needs money to get there so that he can reach kids who are going through rough times.
I personally can speak to the rough times thing, and donated what I could. If you could just donate 42 cents, even, every little bit helps.
So, I have for you a question and a challenge. My question:What is going to kill you? A mighty God, or some random disorder that no one has heard of and no one knows the cause of?
My challenge: You don't know when you are going to die. Neither do I. I have no idea. Only God knows. So, my challenge: Live life to Christ. Live like you are going to die tomorrow and then live forever because if you are in Christ, that's what's going to happen.
Thank you so much for reading today's post. Please keep Tom and his family in your prayers. The world needs people like Tom to remind it about love like God's.
Have a blessed week.

Wall Art

Okay, so I had this idea from a friend-meaning I non-creepily went into his room and saw on his wall-that he had like a bunch of Flash cards on his wall with bible verses and stuff on them, and I had been wanting to do something like that for awhile, but I was lacking in the area of pushpins haha. So, I finally did it today, and it looks pretty awesome. I bought a bunch of new gel pens and picked a couple colors for each kind of quote (blue for songs, red/orange/green for other quotes, pink/purple for bible verses etc...) and I put it in a certain shape.
I like all the diversity and such. I really like how it looks :)

So my problem is, I would like to make the whole wall look a little more natural, but I can't think of anything more to write, so here's what I want: if you guys have any particular quote or song lyrics that mean a lot to you, or pictures that I could print out, you can sent them to me, or put them in the comments, or anything. I really really like inspirational quotes, so that would be so cool. I would like to see how far I can get this message to go.
Quotes are awesome.
So chat me, email me, comment below, and as always, subscribe. :)

I can't wait to see and hear all the quotes you guys give me. Thanks tons.

I am really excited.

Blessings, have an amazing weekend.

Safely Home

Hello, friends. :)

I am safe back home from Ohio. I had tons of fun.

I thought I would give you a quick update.
We left Ohio at about 10:30 this morning, and we got back home around 6:00. We stopped a few times for breaks and food and such, and now we are back.

Thanks so much for your prayers and support.

More tomorrow, Lord willing.

Blessings in Christ.
