I remember lying in the grass and the sunshine... waiting to grow up.
I remember wishing that I was old enough to carry the babies... all by myself.
I remember wishing I could read big books that told big stories... lots of books.
I remember wishing I was old enough to get married and have a family... lots of kids.
I remember knowing that God had a plan for me in the future... one day.
And it happened.
Now, I'm officially in my last year as a "teen" (even though we don't believe in teenagers, just young adults). I'm 19 and facing the world ahead of me with fear and joy.
I have started driving... just not on the road yet. My timid side is still showing.
I am carrying babies around all by myself. And teaching my sisters and brothers.
I read big books of big stories now and I love it. Lots and lots of books.
I'm living God's plan for my life. It's a great plan, a huge plan, a glorious plan, and a wonderful plan!
