I am not your typical 15 year-old. I am not into the latest crazes of video games and IPods blasting my ear drums out. Nope, I'm unusual. But I am happy about that…
Every single day I pump water from the earth, make homemade goodies and learn how to really live life to its fullest. The real way, they way it has been done for ages. My "TV" is watching the sun RISE and SET or seeing the stars on my way out to the outhouse each evening. If I had a TV I may miss this and I would miss the snow coming down and all the nature that abounds in life.
The other day, I witnessed the most beautiful sunset! A dark rose red intermingled with orange and pinks. I like seeing the moon and shooting stars.
I would not want to miss the smell of hay and manure. The smell of the crisp air-with woodstove smoke mixed in. Nor would I want to miss a crisp apple from one of our trees.
I love my life. I love everything about it even with its challenges. I look forward to SPRING when I can pick a handful of daisies.
I love being up to my wrists in dough and our new wood cook stove is my favorite thing. I wouldn't want to miss ice skating on our pond and coming in for warm treats afterwards. I love my life here! No, I'm not your "average" 15 year old. I am ready to take on challenges and ready to give God the glory for all that I have!
II Timothy 2:15
