30-Day Writing Challenge, Day 14 – Your Life 7 Years from Now


7 years from now I’ll be 52 almost 53. Good grief! That used to seem so very, very old. I know it’s not now. 7 years from now I will have a 21-year-old daughter and an 18-year-old about to graduate from high school. Good grief (again)! I am thinking that I will still be teaching. Will I be at Trinity? Who knows?

I’m going to go with what this comic up above is saying, “The future doesn’t care what you think.” That’s the truth. I tell my students all the time to live in the moment. I try not to worry about the future too much. Actually, my favorite Bible verse deals with that specifically – “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”(NIV)

So, in 7 years, I hope to be in a very similar position to where I am now – doing something I love with people I enjoy, living a life with the Glitter Queen and two almost grown daughters.

Maybe, by then, I’ll be a grown-up.
