I give thanks to the Lord for different stages of life. When I was younger I wished I could grow up faster so I could start working. As I am working now, I look at the past and admired the carefree days of my childhood. However, now I am thankful that I can grow up because I can live a meaningful life–a life united to the Lord’s will.
When I think of the Lord having offered His youth for me, I’m touched. Likewise, I want to love Him and offer myself for Him.
