This is a sequel to my last post. Some of you have wondered about those little 4 year-olds and what they must be like now. So here is bit of past, present, and (potential) future. Look, read, enjoy, and PRAY for these dear young people...that they will each fulfill God's purpose in [their] own generation. Acts 13:3
Sarah says, "I plan on going to Cedarville and double majoring in Psychology/Nursing for the first semester or year. After that I'll either go on to get my PHD in Psychology or maybe become a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. And that's as far as I 'know' right now!"
David says, "I'm attending Anderson University in the Fall and, for now, the plan is to major in business administration with a minor in entrepreneurship. I've been interested in investment real estate for the past 6 years. Though I have not begun my career in that, I feel as though it is my passion. I feel as though it's what I'm supposed to do. Call me crazy, but it's what I love!"
Mackenzie plans to study either Psychology or Social Work. She will attend a community college and then complete her degree at Wright State University.
Patrick will be coaching Athletes in Action (AIA) Youth Basketball this summer. He is planning on attending Johnson University in Knoxville, TN in the fall to study Preaching and Youth Ministry.
Jared says, "Next year I plan to attend Wright State University, with my major still to be decided. I am working full time this summer as an STNA CNA for United Church Homes Trinity Community in Beavercreek and enjoy that very much." As far as careers go, Jared considers counseling as one of his possibilities.
When I was preparing for the birth of our first child, I came across a book of proverbs for children. I framed several of them for the nursery. My favorite is Proverbs 16:1 (LB): We make our plans, but God has the final word!
I've found that to be so true in my own life over these many years. As you walk with God, at times you never know where He is taking you...
..like teaching preschool at Xenia Christian School in 1997-98...
And I wouldn't have missed it for the world!!!!!
So my dear graduates, may this song, sung by Chris Tomlin, be your song also now.. and throughout your entire life:
