Tibby began her last official week of high school today, and I am so very proud of her. Yesterday at church they recognized her during the worship service and presented her with a new Bible. Her Daddy prayed for her, and then the elders prayed for her; it was really nice. When people ask her what she plans to do next she smiles and says, "READ!" Well, why not; she's been doing that since she was barely three, and it has served her well. She wants to get her driver's license and a car ~ which she has worked and saved diligently for. Then she plans to start at the community college in the fall and eventually transfer to a university and major in literature or history with hopes to spend some time studying abroad.
It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
What we are is God's gift to us. What we become is our gift to God.
The horizon leans forward, offering you space to place new steps of change.
We know what we are, but know not what we may be.
For I am confident of this very thing,
that He who began a good work in you
will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
