1049BC_Strength

It was pretty neat to receive your postcard last week! It was nice that it was just in time for Thanksgiving, a holiday we have here where we celebrate what we are thankful for in our lives (and eat lots of turkey!) I thought it was cool that we have two things in common. God and my education are two of the most important things in my life as well. In fact, I get most of my strength from God, who, in my religion is the equivalent of love in our world (hence this postcard!) Prayer is so important - and I think the best part about it is that you can do it in any way that you like! I think that anything that makes you feel alive and realize the love you have for the world is a prayer- so for me, music, dance, art, and reading certain books are ways that I pray. The simplest prayer I can think of is walking outside on a sunny beautiful day and feeling every particle of air around you, and feeling like for that one moment, the world makes sense. I think that those times are when God is closest - and He is also close when you open your heart to other people. Education is also very important to me - I think it's great to know that you can achieve anything if you work hard enough in school. It's also fascinating to me to learn about things that people have known for thousands of years- it's cool how our collective knowledge builds upon itself. It was so nice receiving your postcard, I can't wait to get another one! Thank you for taking the time to send it to me! Talk to you soon!
