I took high school journalism from my dear friend and mentor, Millie Bishop. Mostly we sold ads for the Bulldog Barker that always included a stop at the Spudnut Shop for us because we had them on our ads list. I don't remember very much about journalism. I remember a lot about Millie Bishop and how she treated me as a human being. The thing I remember most from journalism is that to write a story; there is a recipe for a complete explanation of the events you try to share. Below you see the six key "ingredients" of a good story. Now, you write us a story using these & share it in the comments below.
I was the fashion editor for the Bulldog Barker. I wish I had those stories. I only have these two pieces that were published. Fun times. Thank you, Millie!!!
GOD STEPPED INTO HISTORY
We call it “Christmas” ...and it celebrates that particular moment in time when God stepped into history in human form. As the Bible says, “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” Some two thousand years later as this time rolls around, some remember, and some forget. Some give gifts in memory of THE gift, which God gave: others simply give gifts. We shall all be conscious of the gifts we give and receive, but I wonder how much thought we give to God’s gift? What kind of price can you put on eternal life? That’s the gift that Jesus brought. As we gather around our glowing Christmas trees and murmur our thanks for the gifts we see, let’s take a moment to breathe a prayer of thanksgiving for an unseen Gift...the greatest gift! “His name shall be called Jesus” … and we call HIS birthday Christmas.
LOVE IS ...
Love is a hill covered with flowers.
Love is the smell of fresh April showers.
Love is the chirp the little bird cries.
Love is the ocean, the way it tides.
Love is the sun, brightly in the sky shining.
Love is the dew, freshly a lying.
Love is a bug climbing a leaf.
Love is the coral which grows by the reef.
Love is a girl and one good boy.
Love is eternal life.
Oh, what a joy!
