What are we to do?8:31 AM
Okay, you have chosen not to go to college but what are you going to do between now and the time you get married? My mom and dad thought this question through carefully, because they knew that most of us girls would not be going to college. It isn’t that my mom and dad disapprove of girls going to college; they just believe that you shouldn't go just because it is expected. At the same time, they didn’t want us sitting around doing nothing just waiting for Mr. Right to show up.
So what was their solution? One of the things that each of us kids must do before we can graduate from high school is that we must have a plan for how we are going to spend our time. For me, I spend a lot of my time writing, working on my Bible courses and selling jean quilts. My sister Rose has a very different plan: she writes, crochets blankets for various ministries, spends a lot of time in prayer, and makes beautiful cards, jut to give away.
Having a plan for what you will do between the time you graduate and the time you get married is an important thing. I am glad my parents made me think hard about that. Do you have any plans, big or small? I would love to hear about them.
