Easter Joy

Jesus came to earth,
To show us how to live,
How to put others first,
How to love and how to give.
Then He set about His work,
That God sent Him to do;
He took our punishment on Himself;
He made us clean and new.
He could have saved Himself,
Calling angels from above,
But He chose to pay our price for sin;
He paid it out of love.
Our Lord died on Good Friday,
But the cross did not destroy
His resurrection on Easter morn
That fills our hearts with joy.
Now we know our earthly death,
Like His, is just a rest.
We'll be forever with Him
In heaven, where life is best.
So we live our lives for Jesus,
Think of Him in all we do.
Thank you Savior; Thank you Lord.
Help us love like you!
By Joanna Fuchs

Merry Good Friday and Happy Easter! HE IS RISEN!

About Me:

  • Gender: female
  • Age: I can vote but I'm not yet of drinking age (you do the math)
  • writing is my passion (can't you tell?) and I hope to one day -- maybe -- make a career out of it
  • I am a college drop-out. Yippee.
  • I work full-time -- guess where! -- at McDonald's (which will be featured occasionally in stories); was also a nanny for three months (horrible experience, but not entirely because of the kids)
  • Favorite TV SHOWS (as of 2014): Last Man Standing, Enlisted, NCIS Los Angeles, Agents of Shield, The Middle, Arrow, and The Tomorrow People
  • Favorite MOVIES (as of 2014): Rise of the Guardians, The Avengers, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, Now You See Me, Captain America, and a bunch more that I can't think of right now
  • My Aspiring Novels:

    Winter Queen -- this had previously been marked as completed (even though it pretty much wasn't) due to a low response rate from you readers. Since I stopped posting I have received many encouraging reviews wanting me to finish. So here it goes, try number two. This is basically my favorite story right now, so please take the time to read it and respond to it.

    "Tabitha d'Helion has the world on her shoulders. Quite literally. She is queen to a proud, strong people who have been conquered and forced from their homes by an age-old foe. The major issue with this enemy is that he wields magic. Now she must find a way for her ordinary kingdom to become extra-ordinary by taking back their homes. She faces many hardships and surprises in her quest for freedom. And there is also a chance for her at love . . . if she is willing to give all for it."

    One Afternoon -- "Natalie Reide only wanted to get through her senior year, saving enough money for a cross-country road-trip she wanted to take after graduation. That plan was utterly ruined when she meets Adam Wynters, the new transfer student who has made it his personal mission to annoy the crap out of her. Also, did I mention that he's paying her to pretend to date him? No? Well he is. Senior year is just full of surprises."

    Riddle Me This -- this story is based in a post apocalyptic world. Sometime in our near future, Earth was decimated by thousands of falling meteors. The survivors of what is conveniently called 'Meteor' have rebuilt. The United States takes on the new name of Cræsh (pronounced Cr-a-sh) in honor of the meteors' crash landing. Riddle Me This is based 100 years (exactly) after the event, so some names for things have been changed -- mostly because I wanted to make it that way. There's humor and definite mystery; you guys won't know the twist it will take until . . . well, read, review and find out!

    "She had no choice, taking this assignment. It was either that or . . . she never wanted to consider the alternative. Her assignment: protect the first son with her life while posing for the public as his girlfriend. She told him not to fall in love with her. Why can't guys ever do what they're told? Now she's stuck and with no way out. Her job is in jeopardy, but so is her future. A future with the one she had always pictured herself growing old with. Life sucks."

    Life is a Highway --this story is based in my own fantasy world, in a city called Edge. It's centered around the Hawke family, but mainly the two brothers as they try to work past years of separation and issues and miscommunication. Not including the prologue, each chapter should be about 5,000 words - give or take - and with ten chapters total. For some reason, I've gotten the urge to write a story that is more like a TV series, minus the watching bit. Each chapter could be seen as an 'episode'. It just seemed like a cool idea to try, so let me know what you think!

    "Ryan Hawke knew that it was common knowledge that he hated his older brother. He made sure that everyone knew it, too. He hated the pranks, the immaturity, the annoying-ness that came so easy to the twenty-one year old. He hated that things always came so easy to the guy. He hated that his brother had left three years ago, leaving Ryan to pick up the slack and be the man of the house. But, the thing is, Ryan didn't actually hate his brother. No, he just thought he did. In truth, he just didn't understand, and he lashed out. Ryan loved his brother; loved the annoying hilarity that followed the immature Hawke. He loved that his brother was protective and loyal to a fault. He just forgot about that for a while. And now he has to find a way to make things right."

    My OneShots:

    Oops -- this is a story about how a guy and a girl meet under the most unlikeliest of circumstances, and slowly fall for each other

    Stuck -- this is a companion-piece to Oops. It's featured in the guy's POV with a little continuation for after Oops left off. "Elmer's has nothing on us."

    Sugar 'n Spice -- the title for this made more sense when Spencer was dumping sugar in the gas tank (which would clog up the fuel lines but not give horrible, lasting damage), but I changed that plot point at the last second. I was too lazy to come up with a better title. Anyways, once again, this is a cute little story about finding THE ONE in the unlikeliest of places, through the unlikeliest of circumstances, in the unlikeliest person. I like this story so much that I was thinking, after finishing my three others (we'll see how long I go with that), that I would turn this into a novel instead of a oneshot. What thinks you readers?

    Presumptions by dear-llama reviews
    One-shot. She thought he was a stain on the family tree. He thought she was the perfect match for his snob-of-a-brother. Negative first impressions on a deserted highway at 2 A.M. ––and the worst part was, they could've had each other at 'hello'.

    Winter Queen reviews
    How could she choose? Between her people - her duty - and love? "You must choose. Now!" But she couldn't. Either option would ruin her. "I-I," she stammered, looking across the muddy ground to those familiar blue eyes. "Choose! Before I choose for you!"

    One Afternoon reviews
    There's a hot guy, one you haven't seen before, walking towards you and dozens of scenarios go through your head as to why he is. None of those ideas are anywhere close to the actual reason. "Hey," he says, voice deep and husky as he smiles awkwardly. You can't come up with a coherent. "Whatever you do, don't freak out." And then he's kissing you. Um . . . What the freaking heck?

    Protect the president's son while pretending to be his girlfriend. Yeah, like that's not a recipe for disaster. "Whatever you do, DON'T fall in love with me." Easier said than done.
