One More Year...

Yes, it's my birthday, I turned sixteen today. DUN-DUN-DUH!

The Lord has done a lot in my life during the past year. He's taught me a lot of lessons,
and He's made me do some hard stuff, but I know that every thing that happens to me is
worked out by Him to make me more like Christ, so I rejoice! I know that I've got some
growing up to do, more lessons to learn, and more hard stuff to do, but I also know that
God is watching over me and guiding my steps with His Holy Spirit. By the way, here's
a good ol' proverb that really applies:

         "My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments
         with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart 
         to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for 
         understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden 
         treasures, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the 
         knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come 
         knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
         he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice 
         and watching over the way of his saints. 
           Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every 
         good path; for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be 
         pleasant to your soul; discretion will watch over you, understanding will 
         guard you, delivering you from the way of evil, from men of perverted 
         speech, who forsake the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of 
         darkness, who rejoice in doing evil and delight in the perverseness of evil,
         men whose paths are crooked, and who are devious in their ways. 
           So you will be delivered from the forbidden woman, from the adulteress 
         with her smooth words, who forsakes the companion of her youth and forgets
         the covenant of her God; for her house sinks down to death, and her paths to 
         the departed; none who go to her come back, nor do they regain the paths of
         life. So you will walk in the way of the good and keep to the paths of the
         righteous. For the upright will inhabit the land, and those with integrity will
         remain in it, but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the treacherous 
         will be rooted out of it." - Proverbs 2

That's one we all should learn well. Anyway, as far as birthday plans go, We're going 
to go on the Blue Ridge Parkway tomorrow to have a picnic and hike, then we'll come
back and have a special ravioli and roasted broccoli supper, complete with soda and
gooney bird pie for dessert!

Schweet sixteen... B)
