I don’t have any grand aspirations to become famous. I know the mark I will leave in this world will be subtle. However, I do have dreams of my own.
I want to own a small house in a quiet neighborhood. Nothing too big. Nothing too exciting. Two bedrooms is fine with me. I want to have a yard with fruit trees: orange, cherry, lemon, and persimmon.
On summer days I will pick the fruit and have it for lunch. I will make fresh orange juice and bake the lemons with salmon.
And hopefully I will be able to share my life with someone. Someone preferably kind and sweet.
These are the plans I have laid down for myself.
But if God has another alternative. A plan much different than mine. By all means I will take it. I trust that he knows what’s best.
