seems like a simple phrase. I am me. duh. You are you, I am me...but this is me typing...and I like to simply....complicate things...not on purpose, that is just the way GOD made me...I look into things a bit more than just simply letting them be.
I am working on a new kids classes and wrote a little poem for thier title page of their book...to remind them of who they are..and that reminded me of a little something that I wrote during this past summer.
I was invited to contribute a layout to a book that will be coming out soon by my friend Lisa. When the book was being put together, at the last minute, the theme of my layout needed to be changed, so I started over, but the content of my first layout was SO me. It is a bit personal, but I thought, it is me, and if you don't know me, or are new to this blog, I thought I would re-introduce myself, and maybe spur you to look at yourself, and write who you are.
so, I am me...
My plan as a little girl
was to be a wife,
become a mother
create a home and live a good & faithful life
filled with family & friends.
as a young girl
was to marry the first boy I fell in Love with.
My goals as a young woman changed as life did.
I have learned along the way
that people take different roads,
make their own choices & base decisions
on their own understanding.
It has taken me 38 years of life filled
with situations, disappointments, wonderful memories,
poor choices, awesome experiences and a
renewed focus on God to understand and accept
that the plans we had made when we were young
are ultimately not in our control.
My wishes now lie in my heart,
in my mind and with the plan that God has for me.
I know to accept the “thrills of victory and
the “agonies of defeats” that happen with life.
Had the things that happened in my life up till
now not occurred, I would not be where I am
at this very moment.
I cherish my children, love making my house a home
that is inviting and comfortable,
I do not take for granted, but cherish
the family & friends that bless my life,
& I continually thank GOD for his faith and undying LOVE.
twenty-three years later…. . I married that first boy I Fell in Love with.
so, who are you?
don't force it
and be honest, you are the only one reading it...(well and GOD, but he already knows...he made you, duh!)...
