memory lane to expectation

I've been taking a lovely jaunt down memory lane. I feel its appropriate due to the fact that soon all i've known will be drastically different. I say that rather dramatically, but i only mean it in the way that i'll be moving out of the house in a week and a half - finally out into the great, wide unknown beyond my tiny scope of home, family, and friends. It is a drastic change. One i don't take lightly.

My memory-walking is due to the fact that i've started a scrap-booking project to chronicle the individual years of my life up until the end of high school. It's quite the task, but i'm finding a lot of joy in it! There are so many memories i cant recall, captured only by film (and it was still film then...). They taunt me, just begging me to remember them and enjoy the sweet bliss of yesteryear. But alas, i cannot remember most of these times and it's disturbing! Life was so carefree and happy back then.

Looking back does cause me to look forward with anticipation though. So many memories now fill pages in my scrap-book but there are so many pages that are yet to be filled and decorated, showcasing my next years. I am filled with anticipation at the great things God will do through and with me, and i eagerly await the unfolding of His plan for my life.

May we look back in order to look forward with anticipation!
