TITLE: That Cross is Holding Me Up

When I begin to fall, I take the cross and visualize, that inside of me, the cross osholding me up so I can keep standing.

In the parable Jesus said that the seed falls on the gorund, but it dones't take root and so it dies. then, he said, the seed falls, is planted, but the when rough weather comes along, the blossom dies. Then he said there is seed that falls on good ground, blossoms and gives life to others.

In our daily travels there are going to be distractions of the world that take away the seed, and chip away at the cross we have inside. So it is very improtant to take the cross daily and dress myself with it so I can stand, and stand tall.

It's like the mannequins at the shopping mall. They have this stick behind them so that they don't fall over and so that they can be strategically placed. Well, it's like that with the cross in the spiritual world. We have the cross holding us up, strategically placing us so we can show beauty to others.

Excellent points here - expand on them, and add some personal exxamples to connect more with your reader. Also need to watch spelling errors. Keep writing!!
