  3. 3. Luke Bogar Sacrifice! Jesus sacrificedShowed people humility He forgave our sins 2
  4. 4. The Beauty of Baseball Hitting a baseball is better than going to the mall. In fact, hitting a line drive is like taking a dive into a lake. Its very exciting like lightning. Its fun to anger a pitcher like an angry bull ready to crush me. Its intense and builds a lot of suspense. Its fun to hit the ball to the fence like Hunter Pence. I would rather hit a ball than probably anything at all. 3
  5. 5. Erin Briesh God’ loving helpers sDo you believe in angels? Guardians for us 4
  6. 6. 2012Two thousand and twelve: is it true or is it false? I think some people might be mistaken. They say the world will come to an end And that everything will be taken. They say that the world will crack And all will be swallowed by the ocean. Buildings will tumble from the pressure, But, if no one knows if this is real or not, Why all the commotion? So the big question is, Do you believe? The Mayans predicted it, but you could be naïve. If not, that’s alright.Who knows, we might not have to suffer this plight. 5
  7. 7. Delaney Dishman Mary A Jewish womanA saint to be remembered Mother of Jesus 6
  8. 8. Prominent Palm It stands so prominent About 50 feet high, So long and tall It seems to touch the sky. It watches over all of us Each and every single day, Swaying so gently From the windy Galveston Bay. Her name is Penny, And every year she bears fruit Adding new coconuts to our city Helping the economy bring in lots of loot. Like the Statue of Liberty She stands so proud, I love living near her I shout with joy out loud! 7
  9. 9. Paige Kolupski Jesus is our GodJesus Christ loves all of us He is our savior 8
  10. 10. Dance The lights flash on, The curtains go up, I take my position on the stage, The crowd goes silent. The music starts to play and I start my routine. Leaping in the air so gracefully, I hear people in the crowd gasp in wonder . My eyes follow my hands up as I land, I can’t see the crowd, It’s black like the night sky. I jump as high as a mountain. I start Cabrioles, My hands and legs are in perfect form. I land right in the middle of the stage, I stand straight up, The music stops and everyone cheers.I slowly bend over into a bow and the curtains close. 9
  11. 11. Alexandra Miller Faith I believe in YouEven without concrete proof Because of my faith 10
  12. 12. Refuge I find my refuge, Deep in the heart of the forest Where the moss-covered trees cradle me in their warm embrace They are my protective parents that love me unconditionally I step hesitantly into the familiar lake The water is frigid.I overcome my fears and plunge headfirst into the dark depths of the water It flows in every contour of my body I move as fluidly as a fish, contorting my body in every direction Until finally, I come up, gasping for air Gliding to the center of the lake I pause floating on my back Here I look up through the small opening in the trees And wonder at the miracles and terrors of our world This is my refuge, where I am truly free I am awakened from my daydreaming by the shimmering perch They surround my body, nibbling playfully at my toes They swirl around me in a blurry silvery cloud They are my pestering younger siblings whom never leave me alone Here in the deepest part of the forest I find my happiest moments Here my soul is free to dance This is my refuge. 11
  13. 13. Rebecca Minor Angels They watch over usThey are always there for us They care about us 12
  14. 14. The BeachAs I walk on the beach, I take in its beauty Next to the sea I feel so puny The seas waves are so strong I wish I could watch them all night long The wind whispers to me It says it came from the calming sea The seashells are polka dots in the sand I reach for them with my hand Some of them are worn down From being tossed all around There are towering palm trees Swaying in the breeze They are flimsy blades of grass Moving without being asked The sunset in the distance Shows much brilliance Isn’t the beach peaceful? 13
  15. 15. John Pratt Jesus is our GodHe will lead us from evil Forever savior 14
  16. 16. Computers The pinnacle of technology Their usefulness uncontrolled The mysteries they can unfold The powers they can bend And the world they can endWith their knowledge and information They don’t need a demonstration The knowledge they can obtain It’s more than the human brain But they need control Or the world may unfold With them life can be easier Like the things they can automate It is certainly their best trait We are their creators But sometimes they control us 15
  17. 17. Maddy SissonGuardian Angels Oh, angels up thereHelp me, I don’t know from here I can count on you 16
  18. 18. Stars I look up at the lovely nighttime sky, It looks like there are at least one million stars. The puffy white clouds roll by, I think I can even see Mars. How blessed am I? To be looking at these stars. They are so wonderful, The most beautiful ones I have ever seen. They want attention, like Charlie Sheen. If I were a star, I would be so happy. Id float around in the sky, while everyone stares at me.I would dance around in the sky to entertain my audience. Im so bright; certainly not a dud. Dont get me wrong, it isnt easy being a star. Dont worry about me, Ive got tiger blood! 17
  19. 19. Hannah Strebeck Angels Angel Purist white .Watching over us by day Guarding us by night 18

Lost I am a person who is lost I dont know where I am or where Im going I am lonely in this world save me, someone save me I am a bird with a broken wing I want to fly away but cannot only He can save me but He is gone I am screaming for help but no one can hear me only He can hear me will he save me? If he does not save me I will be lost foreverlost in this deep dark cold world I am a person who is lost. 19

  24. 24. Licorice Cunning like the devil, Yet fluffy like a cloud. She waits to strike At an innocent passerby With a coat darker than dusk. The cat hisses at a pair of hands reaching to scoop her up. The unsuspecting child, Unaware of her fate or the feline’s awful trait, cradles the cat lovingly. Quicker than lightning, The cat reaches up, And slashes the girl’s lip. It is sort of funny,That I said to her over and over she will not bite. , But, I never said anything About scratching. (True Story) 23
  25. 25. Megan Banfield Laughter brings happiness for everybody elsein the world, happiness will be Laughter 24

What a mess! Standing by the lake, then Splash! The cold water was like pins and needles all over me. I wanted to cry but I laughed instead With water dripping from off my head!! Slithering snakes slowly swimming In the lake I fell in, And my head began to spin. Swimming with the snakes Swim, swim, swim. 25

Birds of a Nice and Colorful Place Birds of a nice an colorful place, All pleasant and as warm as a sunny day Covered in bright blue beaches With tons of coconuts and peaches The trees, bright green towers that provide shade Here there is peacefulness, Nothing like conflict or war, Just happiness and endless shore Here the only thing you have to worry about is getting a sunburn While everything else just fades away into peacefulness Here the only thing you will hear is the chirping of birds All colorful and red, You can even see them at night, in bed These birds all perched in trees by the pool Are one of the reasons why I find this place so cool! 27
  29. 29. Chris Burke The Lord Jesus ChristWho came down from the heavens And died for our sins 28
  30. 30. Stairs Stairs They take you up, up, upThey take you down, down, down If they’re old, they creak,If they’re new, they’re smooth. When you go up, It gets tiring. When you go down, It feels relieving. If they’re hard, It’s wood, Or maybe concrete. If they’re soft, It could be carpet Stairs 29

I Can Only Imagine I can only imagine....I walk down the dirtiest windy path to see the beauty and the strong feeling of pride about this horse I can only imagine....You cant think of something so wonderful, the eyes looking back at you look so deep, and they shine as dark as chocolate. The depth of beauty, peace, and relaxation I can only imagine.... You do something breathtaking, unreal, loving, and dangerous. As I throw the saddle on his back, slip the bridle on the ride, I jump and do the amazing sport of equestrian. Its fast, dangerous, surprising. The best thing ever Some people dont get to experience it. . I can only imagine.... His hooves gallop one by one, smashing in the dirt as he drools and sweats just to work for you. You feel something unreal like youre in a dream. I can only imagine.... You walk in, UN tack him, wash him patiently. Your pride and joy shines in the sun. He overflows with beauty. He is your best friend, giant, and is handsome. He walks in the world....and fears nothing. You put him in his stall and he stands tall. You give him treats and praise to show him that he made your day... I smile because- He is the best thing thats ever been mine. 31

Puppies are very energetic when they see people.But dont bring them to Church because they might pee on the steeple. They do like to play. So just let them swim in the bay. Also, as you should know puppies have to go. So when they do, let them know. If they pee on the sofa, just relax and have a Coca-Cola. The puppy is a miniature dog in training.

Phil hit first and Tiger hit second, And they both landed in the bunker . Tiger chipped close for a tap in par but Phil, Made it in the hole and the 1-up lead made Tiger ill.

She watched as it danced in the air , But it suddenly disappeared.Then she watered the rose. She then too arose and went home. Soon the child returned, But only to find a withered rose.

Into the Forest Leaves as green as jade, away from the destruction that’s all man-made, and into the forest with no turning back, far from the smoke turning all things black, under a canopy so green and lush, away from all of the hustle and rush, through the woods, where deer frolic and play, away from the city and the sky’s eternal gray, and the birds chirp merrily in the sky, a long distance away from those who sigh, and then, in a pasture, bright and green, there is further beauty to be seen, poppies and posies cover the ground, and daisies are blooming all around, the sun dapples the meadow in a brilliant gold,as an evening breeze blows by, very crisp and very cold, and as the sun begins to descend, you wish this day would never end, but go to sleep and let your dreams take flight, as the stars whisper a cosmic “good night...” 53
