Words Are Telling My Story

Writing is something that I've enjoyed since my freshman year of high school. Even though I'm not really sure if I'm good at it. I love the days that words come easy. Like today, I got to work with a college student, helping him write a quote for a postcard. He's a wonderful student who I really enjoy working with. We laughed and spoke way to loud about all the things he likes about his classes. Jordan is an art major at HLG who is bright, funny and an awesome worker!

His quote turned out awesome, “At other colleges, the world is the sole focus of art, but at HLGU I get to study art through a Christian lens.” How awesome is that? He has a graphic design emphasis and is a photographer. It was an awesome play on words.

Most days, sad to say, words don't work that way for me. I stumble over them, doubt their meaning and simply get blocked. Words mean so much, I want to share more of them.

Other days it's even worse than not finding the right words. Some days I don't even have anything to say. I think I have something to say. It may be small and sometimes insignificant but it's something. It's a thought, idea, encouragement, cry, plea,'s something.
