Hello to all my friends in Miss Blessing’s class! I hope you all are doing well and avoiding this nasty covid-19 virus. Wash you hands often!! I have been well over the last few months, but busy. Three of my cows had babies this past month. We have two girls named Bemine and Gracious (Gracie for short) and a boy named Bingo. An interesting tidbit, Bemine was born on Valentine’s Day and her mom Behold was born on Christmas. I refer to them now as my holiday cows. My family is great, we just recently purchased the house that we had been renting so we are officially set to stay where we are. NO MORE MOVING!! I cannot tell you what a relief it is to have a permanent place to call home. We hope to renovate the kitchen and bathroom this fall!!
On a more somber note, as my birthday approaches I want to talk to you all about living in the moment and the desire to grow up. I know that I remember at your age dreaming of the day I would get to go upstairs or over to the other building. I dreamed of being older and in high school, with a job and a car. I’m here to tell you that you should appreciate the fact that you are still young. Being older is not as fun as it might seem. Trust me as a freshman in high school I witnessed it first hand. I went from 8 to 1 school hours to 8 to 3 or 4 on some days. Then add playing varsity basketball for a local christian school near me (GO TCCA EAGLES!!) and you end up with some days I wouldn’t finish school until 7 or 8 even 9. And as a homeschooler that’s not factoring in if you attend traditional school with extra homework. Then there are all these uncertainties that lie ahead. I have to find a job, a car, get my license. What colleges and degrees am I looking at? What do I want to do with my life? It can all be very stressful. I’m not saying that being older is all bad. There are some sweet parts like more independence and the prospect of making my own money and driving a car. What I’m trying to say is don’t let life pass you buy as you look to your future. Let God use you in your life today, he has plans for you tomorrow. You only need to trust him. Take it from me, it seems like life will just pass you by. Be invested in today and you won’t miss something great God has for you!
“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today”. – Matthew 6:24
