Another Year



What happened? I can't be 22... last year I was 18, I think...

It is kind of scary how fast time flies. The past four years I've been milking cows and learning about farming, teaching piano, learning about nutrition and using herbal medicine. Preparing the best I could for an unknown future... marriage, a home and family of my own, but being open to the possibility I would continue working from my parents' home for a very long time.

So much I don't know. It's humbling. If the Lord tarries, here's to another year of discovery! Possibly a lot of changes, too.

I've posted this quote before, but I love it. So you get to see it again ;)

If there were a choice between... on the one hand, the heights and the depths and, on the other hand, some sort of safe, cautious middle way, he, for one, here and now chose the heights and the depths. ~ Sheldon Vanauken


I, for one, chose the heights and the depths.

This reminds me of a Shakespeare quote I ran into just yesterday on a bench in an arboretum...

"If you can look into the seeds of time,
And say which grain will grow and which will not,
Speak..."

Happy Birthday! I think you were 19 when I met you. I am so glad that I did!
