Example text

Sunday evening I had another one. So I sat out the whole church service, sipping tea and reciting Isaiah 40 to myself. I always recite Isaiah 40 to myself when I have stomachaches. It is very comforting. I felt better by the time the service was over. My siblings and I went to our cousins Justin and Stephy’s house, where we played soccer, ate food, and then just sat around while the guys played a game. It was during that time I began to know I was probably getting sick, because there is a certain feeling you get when you are getting sick.

And perhaps sometime soon we shall see if I have some horrible disease or if it’s just an extra long bout of Emily flu. I am having a bit of trouble writing the play, in that it is too short and making it longer is turning out to be harder than expected. Perhaps tomorrow we will know whether or not I have mono. When You Are Well I’M FEELING A LOT BETTER, thank you very much. I thought it would never happen, but look here, it has. Lots of things have happened recently. I went to church, and multitudes of people congratulated me on being better now.
