Stepping Heavenward


Four months...

In just four months I will be leaving my teen years behind. Can you imagine? Just four months! And it's quite sad. I feel like I am getting old. It also seems like I have always been a teenager...twenty has been a long time coming!

And I have decided to follow Danielle's example and make a list of twenty things to do before I am twenty years old, or at least improve on! (and believe me there could be thousands!) Here are the first ten:

1. Be a better penpal to Abbie and Theresa!!

2. Read my Bible more often

3. Spend more time in prayer

4. Take the dog for more tramps down the back field to the creek

5. Be a nicer person to live with :)

6. Finish reading all the books I started this year.

7. Get a job

8. See Jacky :)

9. Study the times, dates, and numeral sections in my Braille book until I can write them without checking!

10.Be more patient with my little sister's excited babble when they want to tell me about the snail they found, the new song they are learning, and about the huge burp they just did!! :)


  • I know thats what my bros always tell me. "enjoy the last days of being 15!" And they'll probably tell me that when I turn 20!

    yeah I can uncerstand number ten! I have 3 little sisters.

  • Hurrah for the first ten! I like your plan :).

    I'm currently doing up a Big 27 list--not so much resolutions this time [I'm saving that for the start of the new year] but 27 books I want to read before I turn 27. I plan on posting my list when it's done.

  • One good thing about getting old, you'll forget how old you are!
    I was 23 until I realized that I was 27. So, I'm still young, ├žause I skipped some years! That's what we all think when we are old!! So, don't worry. Another good thing with you is that you are already crazy, so people won't notice anything different when you start growing senile. We're so smart lady, and such kindred spirits!!!... Your Jacky

  • I would know that the last comment was you, Jacky, even if you didn't sign your name!

    Haha! Crazy alright, but as I have told you before, unless people know me well, they only see a quite shy mouse with no personality...but I guess you know me better!

  • Celeste -- this is a cool post! I hope the last four months of your teen years are great -- it only gets better from here if you're God's.

  • Hey Cel, remember forever ago when I chatted with you about that we neither one knew of us knowning any blind people with blogs? I found one!!!! E-mail me if you wanna meet her.

    Oh, and about the Bible reading, do you have any of the computer Bible software? It makes Bible-reading much more fun! :o) E-mail me if you want more info about that too lol

  • Jana: Have just left a cry for help on your blog, because I lost your email address--email me!!!

    Danielle: on earth do you plan on getting a "Big 27" list? I am struggling to get to twenty!!! (I guess with four months to go, I may have started a bit late! Ha!)

    Caleb G: It's true, with close friends it's fine, and with blogging, emailing it's fine too...but otherwise people think I am a timid little person! (which sends the rest of the world who know me into hysterics)

    Okay...thinking of another ten things...stay tuned...(or maybe don't, it might never happen!)

  • Celeste, 20 is really not a bad age...really! I'm turning 21 in four months - now that's scary! But yeah, it's kinda scary to think that a certain time in your life is over and you'll never get it back again. All the more reason to live life to the fullest and with no regrets. Enjoy the last four months of being 19!
