One memory verse we learn in all five of my classes is James 1:22-24:
"Do not merely listen to the word and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.''
When I look in the mirror, I see a beautiful girl with many talents. But those talents aren't always used to their best capabilities. Many times I wake up in the morning , look in the mirror, and see a tired, yet totally happy girl. But, sometimes, I come back at night and see an unhappy girl due to the events that happened earlier that day. Sometimes, I see a student. Sometimes, I see a cheerleader. And sometimes, I see a girl running late to church. But all the time, I see a wonderful daughter, older sister, and magnificent girl of God. And this girl is me. -C
When I look in the mirror, I see God's workmanship covered with the fruits of the Spirit. I see a kind man who has a hard time staying on the narrow path. I see both sides of me. I see someone who is scared out of his mind, who is confused by the world. I see myself like no one else does. I have several different masks, but when none of them are on, no one recognizes me. When I look in the mirror, I ask myself, who are you? -W
When I look in the mirror, I see a girl who doesn't know what she wants in life. I see a girl who is weighed with people's expectations just because of her father's occupation. I see a girl who is rebellious against anything just to prove she is her own person. I see a girl who can destroy herself with one word. I see a girl who wants better for herself, but fails at achieving those goals. I see a girl who is lost in her procrastination. I see a girl who doesn't have the heart to distance herself from people who can ruin her. I see a girl who can't fill a void that is open. I see a girl who lets her anger control her until she is regretful for the wrong she has caused. I see a little girl in the mirror, always trying to find something, just anything that makes her happy. Then I realize that girl is me. -N
When I look in the mirror, I see a boy with a choice. I see a road that leads to the pretentious and strenuous task of following in his grandfather's footsteps of becoming a Nobleza. I see my mother's wishes to stay in America where I was born and ignore the land of my ancestors, and the responsibility of carrying an ancient family name with grace and leadership. I see a boy struggling with a decision left to him by the ones who gave birth to him, each pulling me to opposite sides. I see a boy trying to listen to God for help, but feeling like the answer is never coming. I see a boy who wants the best of both worlds, but is quickly losing both. I see a boy who, if he does not make his decision before his grandpa dies, will cause an entire side of his family legacy to be lost forever. -J
When I look in the mirror, I see a girl who laughs and smiles, but knows that happiness is sometimes fake. The girl I see has been wounded by all the nasty comments because of her hair color. I see a girl who is happy on the surface, but is broken and sad underneath. I see a girl who loves so easily and finds out that some of those who love her back really don't because they are using her or just playing around. I see a girl whose heart isn't for guys to play with, and then breaks as if it were a toy. I see a girl who moved and is still adjusting. I see a girl who won't open up to a lot of people. I see a girl who is outgoing but sometimes shy. I see a girl who looks weird and beautiful. I see a girl who might not be as pretty as other girls, but if you get to know her, she is sweet and caring and loving. I see a girl who is a child of God and loves God because He is her Father. -C
When I look in the mirror, I see a girl who has always tried to find the acceptance of others around her. I see a girl who is criticized for almost everything she does, and who never seems to be good enough in her mother's eyes. I see a young woman who is trying to constantly grow in her faith and relationship with God. I see a hopeless-romantic who gets drawn up into every kind of love story. I also see a high school girl who wonders what she will turn out to be. I see someone who is unsure of where life is going to take her, but wants to travel the world with her future family. I see someone who can get caught up in the bad things, even though she tries to fight the temptation. Most importantly, I see a world changer with a bright future. -A
Applicable quote of the day:"I stayed away from mirrors when I was younger and I didn't like having my picture taken. I was tall and had braces and felt ugly."
