    Hullo again 🙂 It’s been a long time since I’ve been on this thread – so sorry for neglecting you all!  I’ve read so many beautiful poems on here and I love them 🙂 Keep it up, you guys!

    Here’s a little something that grew just the other day.  I’m not sure where it came from, but I’d love feedback or thoughts 🙂

    @andrew @k-a-grey @emma-starr Thank you guys 🙂

    @emma-starr Don’t be sorry – I love your poem a lot <3 😉 Also, I don’t know if you noticed, but I’m following your blog XD I don’t blog, though I’ve thought about starting one before.  Right now, life is a bit busy, but I might think about it during Christmas break 🙂
    I’d love to keep in touch…[Read more]

    @emma-starr Aw, that poem was so sad… I started reading intending to have a good laugh, but my heart ended up sobbing with poor George….not that that’s a bad thing, though – it’s such a sweet little poem 🙂 I love it, Emma <3 It’s been forever since we’ve talked, but I’m so glad you tagged me.  I’ve been inactive on SE for too long…[Read more]

    Andrew, this is really an awesome poem. The way you wove truth into your words with the simple sway of your rhythm gave me such satisfaction as I read. Thank you for sharing this 🙂

    My heart… wow.
    This is… this is just so beautiful. I love how it just muses and wonders and wanders right down, and as it seems like the whole thing’s just about to fade away, you surprise us with the lovely conclusion that is so true! I love it so much, Cindy <3 Bravo!

    @kb-writer Haven’t seen you around NITOC yet, but keeping my eyes pealed. 😁

    Anne, I don’t have words after reading this. It brought tears to my eyes. <3

  • Libby commented on the post, Pruning 4 months, 2 weeks ago

    Wow, Sarah, this is beautiful and poignant. What a creative reminder of God’s faithfulness and sovereignty over our lives. How many times have I been that child–questioning my Father as he prunes me? This is so sweet…it was such a blessing to read it <3

  • Gabrielle, thank you for sharing this. I think it’s definitely easy to fall into the category of authors who just throw random things that make the story interesting in just for the sake of getting it in. I so appreciated what you talked about under “make pain meaningful” and “tragic stories mirror reality”. So true–thanks for this great reminder <3

  • @evelyn Woah!  So cool!  Which club will you be with?  You should come up to Washington for a tournament!  Espresso Cup’s our biggest 😉
    My name?  That’s funny 🙂 Both are relatively common names.

    @kb-writer Yeah, that is weird.  You do have a sister named Anna, though, right?

  • @kb-writer Yay!!!!  I’m so glad you’re going!  I wasn’t sure, but now… yes, we definitely need to find each other!  I’ll be competing in OI, OO, and Apol.  My name’s actually Elizabeth Powell 😉

    Also, one question I’ve been meaning to ask, do you have a sister named Anna Baker who wrote an article for the

  • @kb-writer SO SORRY I’ve neglected to respond!!!  Life is extremely busy right now, prepping for NITOC, last minute decisions, and right now building a new room in our house. So…yeah.  Life is crazy.  But, I’m so sorry anyways.  I should’ve let you know I couldn’t respond for a bit.

    Okay,  so here are my thoughts.  I have some suggestions here…[Read more]

  • Wow Dakota, this brought me to tears. Maybe it’s just been a tough couple of months for me, but this spoke to my soul. I was so blessed to be able to read this. Aside from the message of hope, the rhyming and word choice you used were amazing and so lyrical. Thank you for sharing–never stop! Keep it up for the Lord, Dakota! <3

    @h-jones Ugh, I don’t know why I didn’t see your poem “Trust” on AP before, but it’s so beautiful!  Thank you, thank you so much for sharing that with us.  <3

    Goodness, it’s been a while since I’ve been on here–here’s a little something I wrote.  Tried to get it published, but didn’t work out.  All the same, it’s my prayer and I couldn’t thi…[Read more]

  • @h-jones Oh my goodness!!  I’m so sorry I just now saw this!  I’m praying for you right now, (even if it’s a bit late!)  Any results yet?
    Also, so neat that you guys use your musical talents for the Lord 🙂 It’s been too long since we’ve talked with each other, but know that you are in my thoughts and in my prayers.  Love you! <3
