I think about "older" lots.

Older means that I'm growing. Growing in ways that I can't always see. Growing to be older. Growing to learn more.

Growing to be more like Jesus.

At least, that's what I want to be doing. If we aren't growing towards Jesus, then we're growing the wrong direction.

I don't want to grow down. I want to grow up.

Up towards the Son.

Up towards that place where happiness and Love reigns forever.

I want to grow older in Jesus. And I might have a lot of time left on this earth. I might be Home tomorrow. But I want to use every minute, every second of this "growing older" to glorify Him.

If someone is reflecting on my life 1 year, 10 years, or even 100 years from now. I don't want them to see me.

I want them to see Him.

Because if they see Jesus through me, then I know that every tear, every pain, every hardship will be worth it.

If they see Jesus in me, I will have grown in Him.

And that is all I want to do with my life.

Hi! I'm Lindsey. Remember Me?...

So Hi! Again. I know I haven't been the best of bloggers lately, but I'm okay with that.

I have been really busy. My family just got back from a week-long camping trip (more on that soon.) and all the children in my family recently stayed with another family while my parents went to a nearby lake for the weekend.

On top of that, I've been finishing up my Algebra book (So Close!!), preparing for HPA auditions, and getting ready for my freshman year. Because before I know it, this is going to be upon us.


And I want these last days of summer to last as long as possible.

And another thing, it's been almost 3 years since these little girls entered the world...
and I am fearful that I am already missing so many little bits of their lives. I don't want to be the aloof big sister, who is always on the laptop and cell phone, or hanging out with her friends or upstairs with the door shut.

I want to be remembered as a loving, caring oldest sister, who was never too busy to make time for them.

And they are way more important then anything on my computer.

So yeah. Just a little update on my life and things I'm thinking about. I'll try to be back soon!
