Yes, it's that time of year again... the time for me to buckle down and work hard on my five college classes that I'm taking. It's really hard for me to believe that it's already September and that the summer has already slipped away. My last summer as a teenager... I can hardly believe it.
Just yesterday, I was playing with my Barbie dolls
Had a momma who was there... to answer my childish calls
Just yesterday, I was learning how to read
Learning how to play nicely in word and in deed
Just yesterday, I was scared of the dark
Also was afraid of dogs that bark
Just yesterday, I accepted Jesus into my heart
Since then, we have never been apart
Just yesterday, I was looking forward to learning how to drive
Couldn't wait for my sixteenth birthday party to arrive
Just yesterday, I got baptized with my brother
Could have never asked to share it with another
Just yesterday, my eyes were red from tears
What unfolded before me were my darkest fears
Just yesterday, I watched my momma die
I can still see her smiling face, within my minds eye
Just yesterday, I was young and naive
Anything and everything, I did believe
Just yesterday, there were five around the dinner table
Now my family gets the "single parent" label
Just yesterday, all of this was real to me
My life: a painted tapestry
Just yesterday, I was dreaming up plans
To visit and have adventures in distant lands
Just yesterday, I thought it would last forever
My perfect life that nothing could sever
Just yesterday, my life was bought
At the hands of the master, I was wrought
Just yesterday, Jesus died for me
Up on that hill... the cross at Calvary
Just yesterday, Jesus whispered my name
And I quietly and obediently came
Just yesterday, Jesus forgave my sin
and set me free all over again
Just yesterday, I cried a tear
Because of everything that I've held so dear
Just yesterday, God put my past to rest
With the loving tender words "my plans for you, are always best."
Wow. Umm... I didn't know that I had a poem in me this morning. Haha... that was unexpected.
Anyways... I've just been thinking lately about how the time goes so fast. Before we can even blink, it's gone. God's been convicting me about spending my time more wisely lately.
Well... the whole POINT of this blog entry was just to give you all an update on what I've been up to. I've had a lot of homework, hence the lack of blog posting lately.
We spent the weekend in Wales and I must say... it was one of the most FUN times that we've ever had together as a family in my opinion. The four hour car ride over to Snowdonia was a lot of fun... and I even got some studying in! WOOHOO!
Okay, so now blogger is making me mad and won't do what I want with the pictures and messed up my spacing... and I have to go eat lunch and study... so I'm giving up and just posting this incredibly random blog post.
I'm not insane... I promise.
Have a beautiful blessed day!
