Quarter of a Century

Today, I turn old. Well, maybe not old perse', but definitely older. I'm saying "Good-Bye" to my younger years, and officially welcoming Adulthood. Yikes. That's even a little scary to just say.


*Shudder* There's no pretending to be a young whipper-snapper anymore. On forms, I will no longer fill out the youthful "18-24 year old" box, but rather the "25-34 year old" one. That's the real deal. The Big 2-5 springs me forward into the next age group.

I really do feel like I'm entering a new stage of my life with this particular birthday. The stage that includes babies, and the years of our own little (or possibly big) family. A stage that also includes a closer relationship God, as well as my church family and especially my husband. A stage that consists of challenges and growth and opportunities to further establish the woman of God that I strive to become. I pray that I can live up to His expectations in the coming period of my life. Every day, I live to make Him proud.

We'll see what the next 25 years has in store for me. It is such a relief to rest in the fact that God already knows. I know the past 25 have been filled with blessings of great magnitude, that I could never have imagined. If the next 25 have even a fraction of what I have already received, it will be much more richly blessed than I deserve.

**Edit: Let the spoiling begin! Look at this beautiful spring bouquet of daisies in an adorable water pitcher that my momma had sent to my office! So beautiful! Thanks, Mom! I love you!

Happy birthday! Many years ago, I turned 25, and I remember really freaking out about not being 18-24 anymore. I didn't like the idea of being in the 25-35 group! I think that birthday hit me harder than 30. Not sure if that's encouraging or not, but I thought I'd share! :)
