It's so easy to think you will be young forever. To not see past next week. I sometimes can't see past the current diaper I'm changing. I love the loooong-term vision presented here. My friend Erin says, "As I grow older, I want to grow MORE wise, not less." Sounds simple. But it will take the kind of thought laid out in this article to TRULY pursue. And all for His glory.
Anyone read this anymore? If so, I'd like to scoot away from kiddos' pictures a bit (although I like my kids a whole lot) and, although I don't aspire to spend much time here, share links like this that may be helpful. IF anyone is reading. =) If not, I'll just save them to my own favorites or print.
