  • Holy Hands Analysis

    The power to help someone feel better physically or emotionally can be as simple as writing a letter, hugging someone or administering medications. These tasks are simple when done freely with two hands. Our hands are tools that we can use to help patients, family or friends when they need it the most. Most everybody has two hands, but not everybody uses them for good. To use our hands for good in healing others, is the same as doing God’s work on earth (O’brien, 2001). After reading the passage on “Holy Hands” from the book, The Nurse’s Calling: A Christian Spirituality of Caring for the Sick, I could not help but to reflect on a time when I was sick and required surgery. My surgeon was Dr. Sharon and she did something thoughtful that I will never forget. She gave me a handmade card that read, “peace for you” on the front. On the inside, left hand side it had Psalms 56:3, “When I am afraid, I will trust in you”. On the right, it read, “Dear Mrs. Sederburg, May the comfort of God’s love fill you with hope and peace.” My doctor did not only use her hands to heal my body but made me a card to show that she cared about my spiritual wellbeing. This paper addresses the following: How the subject of using our hands to help others made me feel? What is responsible for me feeling this way? How does my perspective on this subject potentially influence those around me? What do I think I should do, based on my response to this reflection? First, I will address how the…

  • Descriptive Essay: Jewel And Jewel

    Jewel and I come up from the field, following the path in single file. Although I am fifteen feet ahead of him, anyone watching us from the cottonhouse can see Jewel's frayed and broken straw hat a full head above my own. The path runs straight as a plumb-line, worn smooth by feet and baked brick-hard by July, between the green rows of laid-by cotton, to the cottonhouse in the center of the field, where it turns and circles the cottonhouse at four soft right angles and goes on across the field…

  • Personal Narrative: The Hour Of Jewel

    The hour of Jewel would be from 9:30 to 10:30. It wouldn’t be everyday though because I am very busy on some days. This would be my special time because I can play basketball, watch movies, and eat lots of food. I would most likely play basketball first since I don’t want to exercise on a full stomach. When I watch movies, they won’t be specific movies, since I do like all types of movies. When I’m watching a movie that’s the perfect time to eat all the foods I like, especially since I can’t do…

  • George Balanchine Jewels Analysis

    George Balanchine is recognized worldwide for his virtuosic, neoclassical ballets. Balanchine has been claimed as the father of American ballet, due to his prominent contributions to the twentieth century ballet culture.

Jewels is a full evening length performance, consisting of three acts. Each…

  • Character Analysis: The Jewel Of Medina

    Intro and Thesis: The novel The Jewel of Medina by Sherry Jones, is an intriguing and engulfing story of A’isha, the wife of Muhammad. I found myself enjoying the reading and excited about what event was going to happen next. Although it is not all based in fact, it helps individuals grasp the concepts of early Islamic life. The novel shows many examples of strong women despite their lesser status that is expected at the time, especially when portraying A’isha. I think A’isha’s character helped…
