I’m participating in a huge philanthropy called Dance Marathon where college students pledge to be on their feet for 26.2 hours to raise money for hospital care for extremely ill children through the Children’s Miracle Network. My goal is to raise $350 and I have 32 days to do so.
If you feel so inclined to give towards my personal fundraising for the event, I would greatly appreciate it. My friend Davis and I are trying to get more Christian organizations to get involved with the philanthropy by being front-runners.
Well, I wrote my first prose piece. I’ve read it about four times and I like it. I still need to edit it though. I just always get caught up reading it and don’t keep track of what needs editing. I will get that together before I publish it. I’m going to publish it on my writing blog ( ivegotstoriestotell ) and then I’ll reblog it here.
I think I’m gonna have a good time writing these prose pieces tomorrow. I didn’t think I would get into writing nonfiction, but I keep coming up with things to write. As long as I don’t cry, I’ll be good. Ugh. I’m tired of crying. Lord, take over.
Tonight, I pray for every person that secretly lives in pain. You cry yourself to sleep every night not wanting to bother anyone. You don’t know what else to do. God knows what is going on. He cares and He sees. He’s already working on your behalf. Rest God has this. Tomorrow, you will wake up refreshed and full of wisdom and understanding in Jesus Name.. Amen!
a friendly reminder: COLLEGE IS NOT FOR EVERYONE - people who went/go to college are not ‘better’ or ‘smarter’ than anyone else - there is no right time to pursue ‘higher education’ - no matter what, you are still a person and you deserve to be treated with respect
“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.”—Andrew Boyd (via oitheresawargoingonhere)
