i wake up and lay there. sleep escaped last night so the morning in bed is a late one. all is quiet except for the birds singing their melodious songs outside the lighted window. an occasional rumble from a truck can be heard in the distance.
i look around my room and take a look at my life. times are changing and i'm not sure if i like it. there's an eighteenth birthday for me next week. plans for high school graduation are in the making. there's talk of college. the university is calling and wants me to apply. excitement builds then fear takes over as it all sinks in. times are changing... changing... changing. my life is shifting.
i like things the way they are and am frightened at the future of trying new things. the comfort zone is here and must i step out of it's bounds? it's hard to do but i know with God all things are possible. I take comfort in that thought and am gratefully reminded of the virtuous woman in Proverbs 31 who smiles at the future.
plans are not clear but i know i can rest my future in His hands. with a smile on my face.
