Acacia Tree

My Bible teacher really likes Acacia tree's, so I wrote a poem for him about this type of tree(:

The Acacia Tree

The Acacia tree has a foundation
a foundation that will forever stay strong
this Acacia tree provides shade for everyone
and stays alive all year long
you may think that humans are nothing like trees
however that is not true
we both need to have everlasting roots
that help us become new
We need to be planted into God’s word
just like the Acacia tree is planted into the ground
God’s word will keep us alive 
just like the water keeps the Acacia tree profound
When pain taunts us left and right
we all need a foundation to return to
we all have to let our roots dig deep into God’s word
That is what God wants us to do
People who have no roots have no where to go
they are left feeling sad and alone
They have nowhere to run to and no one to count on
but maybe that is all they’ve ever known
Once you have a foundation
like a tree, you need to grow
Some people need God in their life
some people need to know.

January 12

I read something in my devotional the other day that I feel like should be shared with a lot of people. I read this: "Hope in Me, and you will be protected from depression and self-pity. Hope is like a golden cord connecting you to heaven. The more you cling to this cord, the more I bear the weight of your burdens; thus, you are lightened. Heaviness is not my Kingdom. Cling to hope, and my rays of Light will reach you through the darkness."
I love that so much. 
Also, the other day I was rip-sticking around the block. I was praying and asking for God to give me a sign because I really couldn't feel his presence anymore. I didn't think that God was going to give me a sign because I've never really gotten an obvious sign from him before. Anyway, as I was riding along the street, I looked into the sky and in the sky was a cross formed out of the clouds. It was amazing.  
I haven't really posted much about my family lately, so I'll give you a little update on how everyone is doing here. My dad is doing good with work, and my siblings are loving school/loving their teachers. I'm also loving school but I'm not loving the exams. Next week is exam week, so I've been studying all day. I've actually been studying in our storage closet in the depths of our basement because it's the quietest place in our house. Once Exams are over, then I will begin to start writing more. I'll be updating this blog more often once I get into that routine(:
