  1. Compassion

    March 5, 2014 by hopev227

    During the “Phantom of the Opera” we learned at the end about Christine showing compassion twords the Phantom by kissing him. She shows him that not every person in this world is horrible. Watching these dramatic scenes in the movie are just heart wrenching. I was crying as I watched. Compassion is a very important and very beautiful thing in life. If we don’t have compassion twords people or things we really don’t care. In my life I’ve been shown so much compassion. When I was born my mom couldn’t take care of me and put me up for adoption. She did that so I could have a better chance in life with a good family because she knew it took a mom and a dad to raise a child. Without her doing what she did, who knows were I could be right now. I’ve also been shown compassion by many of my friends. Last year was a difficult year for me and instead of leaving me and going you’re on your own 2 of my clostest friends made sure I was ok and that I was gonna make it. They didn’t run away and hide. They made sure that nothing was going to happen to me. Without them my life would be not even close to as amazing as it is today. Compassion is a beautiful thing that we all need to have. Because if we didn’t have compassion we wouldn’t know what love and grace is. Compassion is one of the most important things in this world and I hope in the years to come more people would be shown the compassion I was shown and more.

  2. Surprise!

    November 25, 2013 by hopev227

    Yesterday I had the best surprise of my life. It’s been 2 months since my best friend, Dylan, has moved back to Houston and so walking into church I wasn’t expecting it to be different. I’ve gotten used to not seeing him and being fine with that. On the way to church my mom and I where having this in depth conversation about Xbox Live and how Dylan is friends with me on there. So it never crossed my mind he might be there that Sunday. While we where talking to a friend of my Mom’s friend, guess who walks in? I’m like “Am I imagining him walking towards me or is Dylan really here?” After I got over my initial shock I couldn’t contain my excitement inside. During the sermon my ADD kicked in. I couldn’t sit still. I kept squirming, I had to text my brother because he was freaking out thinking Sunday school started earlier then normal. Finally it was OVER! I was like “Yayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayay!!!” I was like a little kid who just got the toy they wanted on Christmas. It was the best day ever. We had a lot of fun jus catching up, and doing random stuff. Even when he had o leave I was fine. I was just so happy I got to spend some time with my friend. I realized that I’d rather see him on these rare occasions then not even know him at all. Now I can’t wait till Christmas when he comes back! 😉 <3 🙂      

  3. A Cup of Cheer

    November 18, 2013 by hopev227


    Christmas for me was always a receiving event. Who doesn’t like the presents, the money, the stockings?!?!? To this day my family and I do Christmas ministries through our church and try to make Christmas for children around the world better. I would do it but never get the true meaning. I would be like, I’m a good person now where are my gifts. Until I met my friend, Felicity. Felicity had never had a true Christmas. She grew up in an abusive family and she was removed from the house at age 7. Up until then she never had a Christmas. No presents, no love, no nothing. It just was another day in her life. Felicity made an impact on the way I saw Christmas from then on. And last year I had another one with my other best friend, Dylan. He was forced to move 300+ miles away from his mom and go to a new city, school, and live a new life. His dad also left. He went home for Christmas to his mom and didn’t see his dad. They taught me that on Christmas it’s not about what you get it’s about who you love and care about and spending time with them and showing them that you truly care. Now when I hear the lyric from Holly Jolly Christmas “But I’ll have a cup of cheer” I know what it means and how important it is to remember this and use this in your life.
