10 Years


It has been over 10 years since I have graduated from high school! The time has really gone by fast, and yet it seems like a very long time ago. I did not take my camera with me, so I am hoping my friends will post a good pic on their blogs and I can steal it. This is the only picture I have from the weekend. It was fun talking to people that I haven't seen in a long time. Going to a high school football game, laughing about old memories...

I would say that I wasn't really surprised about what most people are doing right now, etc. I guess most of us haven't changed that drastically in 10 years. At times, I did feel like I was in high school all over again, talking to my friends about what we were going to wear, worrying about the tiniest details that are of no importance, and always building something up in your mind to be bigger than it really is. Somethings that have happened over the past 10 years are very obvious. College, marriage, jobs, house, baby. But the spiritual things may not be so obvious. I really began thinking what have I done or how have I grown spiritually in the past 10 years? I think that is a rhetorical question for now, it definetly gives me a lot to ponder....

the 10-yr reunion is crazy!! i truly feel like i graduated about 2 yrs ago, not 11!! i think i was most surprised about how things had really not changed that much. you are so right though, all that really matters is the spiritual growth over the past 10 yrs. i know you are a wonderful godly wife and mom!!

i can tell you this about your spiritual growth... 10 years (and also more like 15)ago you were one of my biggest influences on how to be more christlike. today- i still look to you in that same way.
