Dear Me

Dear 10 year old me,
You are going to have a tough year.  You think you are weak, but you are strong.  Everything that happens this year helps to mold you into the person you will become.  Keep your values and trust in Jesus. No matter what anyone thinks, you have God and a family who loves you unconditionally.

Dear 14 year old me,
This year you are going to meet a boy. A special boy who makes your heart explode.  A boy who will make you feel all giddy inside.  Hold on to this boy, because he will give you some of the best years of your life. He will be your best friend, your shoulder to cry on and your better half.  God made him specifically for you.

Dear 18 year old me,
That same boy who you met 4 years ago is the love of your life.  However, get your brain together and put school first.  College IS your future with him.  If you let him take a back burner for just a couple of years, you can get done and get married and live the life you’ve always wanted.  Stay strong sister.

Dear 22 year old me,
Ah!  It’s the boy again.  But this year?  You marry him.  Your soul mate becomes your husband.  Cherish him.  He is your world and loves you so much.  Enjoy your time together as a married couple.  That first house you live in?  Don’t rush to buy a newer, bigger house.  It’s totally overrated.  Life is not about what you have, but WHO you have.

Dear 25 year old me,
You and that boy, make a beautiful life together.  God blesses you with the best gift you will ever receive.  As soon as you meet her, her little life almost slips through your fingers.  Trust Jesus.  Never lose your faith.  God loves you and he loves her. He has the best plan for your lives and those do not include plans to harm you.  Give it all to him.

Dear future me,
Please please please stay strong in your faith.   Try to always see the good in people.  Do NOT waste so much of your life/time worrying.  You are so blessed, don’t EVER forget it.  Raise your girl to have morals and values and to love the Lord above all else.  Spend lots of quality time with your loved ones, you never know when you last day with them will be.  Tell the people that you love just how much you love them.  I could never get tired of hearing my loved ones tell me how much they love me!  Speak kindly to everyone.  Forgive often.  Love your life-this journey is yours on purpose.
