look around you. Nothing would be here if it weren't for words


The moon's beautiful glow illuminates the darkness, overpowering the brave little stars, yet at the same time joining together to bring light to the world, to guide a lone traveller, or to provide a wonderful display of God's artistic design. The stars never failed to twinkle, even though their shine was dim in comparison to the luminous light of the moon.

The Milky Way created a soft contrast to the raven black sky, untold secrets hidden beneath its winding passage. Many a man had wondered about this galaxy, but some things were meant to remain a mystery. Beside the Milky Way shot a star with a tale of purple, red and blue. It sparked one last time before disappearing into the thick clouds, its destination unknown, its purpose yet to be discovered.

On the horizon stood tall, majestic mountains, their tips covered in sparkling white snow. They cast a portentous shadow on the brown hills below, and called out their domain as far as the eye could see. Yet even though they were strong and powerful, there was Someone who could move them, Someone who could make them bow down.

Alyssa placed a soft hand on the window pane and continued to stare wide-eyed. It was moments like this that made her want to open her window and scream at the top of her lungs that God was so good, so wonderful. It never ceased to amaze her that He had created all this with just his voice. Who knew words could be so powerful?

Words are really powerful. When it comes out of your mind. Your words have achieved in getting me a vivid mental picture of the description as exact as it can be. I felt a breeze take over my heart. Yes, after all, God is so great!
Liked it sooo much. Keep writing.

This is one of my favorite story because the way you described nature and beyond is the same way I feel, just couldn't say it as better as you. You're an amazing writer. And i'm pretty sure you're going to publish one of your work pretty soon.
God is everything, apparently. This is great and keep up the good work! :)
