World Kindness Day: “Be the light you wish to see in the world”

When I wondered what to write about for World Kindness Day, an annual celebration of kindness held every November 13th, something came to mind which I bore witness to, years ago on the streets of downtown Toronto. I was standing outside a fast food restaurant, waiting for a friend to come out and witnessed something… Continue reading World Kindness Day: “Be the light you wish to see in the world”

Why Do Good Things Happen?

In senior year, I was working on a teen dystopian novel called "Rubble" that included the characters discussing Biblical matters. I wish I could finish that book, but I wrote it during physics, chemistry, and biology classes, and there's no way I could remember all the weird sciency stuff I was planning on putting in it. I do think it's interesting how I wrote about a lockdown, and people not wanting to listen to the government to keep them safe. Hmm...Pandemic predicted? Anyway. Hope you enjoy! Comment below if you might want to read more of this incomplete work.

What will heaven be like? – The Good Place Spoiler Alert

I think that until we really realize what life is like without God, this almost literally Godforsaken earth we've advocated for since the beginning of time, it would be impossible for us to truly understand that an eternity of perfect communion with God and each other is the only antidote to this aching pain we have deep within us. Once we get to heaven and our sinful, selfish blinders are removed, I don't think we'd have eternity any other way.

“The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.”Proverbs‬ ‭21:5‬ ‭NIV‬‬ Well, isn’t this quote a gem. I should actually frame this one for my wall in my imaginary office. I think I might be the queen of haste. A lot of the times I don’t care if something… Continue reading On Profit and Poverty

Streetwise

"Jesus doesn't care about political correctness!" he was saying, his voice clear and convicting despite his blatant discomfort. "Everyone keeps saying that his message and anything that has to do with the Bible could be offensive to people, and that's why Christmastime is no longer Christmastime, but the 'Holidays'. It's why they teach Evolutionism in schools and universities, and not one word can even be mentioned about the true creation of the universe and everything in it!"
