Two Scriptures became my guiding compass. “Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth...” Ecclesiastes 12:1 (KJV) and Proverbs 3:5 and 6, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (KJV)
As I attended church and youth camps I earnestly sought God’s direction in my life. By working with children, I found Elementary Education to be an appealing career option for me; so I chose the college prep track in my final years of high school. As a result of receiving a small scholarship my college choice became the Christian college. And, the Christian college was where I met my husband.
The path God directed me on led to a Christian marriage, two International adoptions, a career in education, helping in a business started by my husband, to three employment opportunities half-way around the world, to a mission organization in our own country, and back to my home state where my husband and I both continue to pursue what God would have us do. Yes, there have been rainy days, and sometimes we could not see the path clearly, but God has always been faithful.
As I look back over a very satisfying life, I often send a prayer heavenward: “Thank you, Lord, for directing my path from youth to mature age.”
