Growing Up

It used to be so easy
To write line after line
And now the topics escape me
Time rushes by like the wind
And before I know it,
The day has come to an end.

It used to be so easy
To stay up all hours of night
And now I find myself nodding
Unable to control my eyelids,
Losing focus each passing minute,
And needing naptime like the kids.

It used to be so easy
To think I knew the way
And plunge ahead recklessly
Without concern for consequence
But experience has opened my eyes
And now I question my competence.

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
