Goodness… How Time Flies. (plus an announcement!)

Hey Y’all!!

Dude guys it’s my birthday. I have lived one-fifth of the average American lifespan. (I had to look it up. I’m not all that smart. 😉 ) In a way, it’s kinda scary, but in another way, it’s actually really cool. I love that kind of stuff. That means I have, give or take, four-fifths of my life left to impact the world around me. Gotta make it count, y’all.

It’s hit me recently how much I can impact the world around me. I’ve got a good video about this. Blimey Cow, y’all. Nothing but the best. 🙂 My experiences lately have made me come to grips with what I want to be saying with my life. Do I want to be that one person who everyone is like “ew her”? Or do I want to be the one who everyone is sad to miss hanging out with because there’s an undeniable godly glow always drifting around her? I think I’d rather be the last one.

Lately, I’ve been realizing that I impact my world more than I think. We’re going to be moving further South in June and my friends are devastated. I asked my mom about this. What she said stuck to me and I hope and pray I’ll never forget it.

“Maddy, the reason why these girls are so upset with you moving is that there is Jesus spilling out of you. You are leaking Jesus on your friends. You’ve always been there to talk with them, listen to them, and comfort them. They have relationships with Jesus too, but you are actively sharing your Light with them every time you see them.”

Dang.

Just wow. Y’all, if that don’t make you wanna go share Jesus, something is wrong with you 😉

So WHO WANTS TO COME SPREAD JESUS SPARKLE AROUND LIKE CREAM CHEESE?

(you can quote me on that 😀 )

Anyways, I wrote a poem about this because… that’s just what I do… etc. This came out of me kinda worrying about my future (I’m sure none of you know that feeling 🙂 ) because I’m 15 now so wow aah what’s happening.


It’s kind of funny how slowly things move

Only to speed up right when you think you’re comfortable

It’s funny to feel at home
And then get transplanted somewhere else
Is that all I am in life?
Just move, move, move, move, and die?
My words are powerful and I want to wield them
But how can I pick them up if I’m so small?
How can I use them to spur on others?
God, you designed my heart for adventure
But all I want right now is stability
please
hold
my
hand
Don’t let me go.
Like a toddler learning to walk, I will fall on my face
I will bruise my knees
But someday I will run
Unhindered
Free.
My words will free me
Your Love will free me.
Walk by my side, dear God, and don’t let me fall.
You won’t let me fall.

As an added bonus to today’s birthday post, I’m including some adorable baby pictures so you can see how cute I was 😉

And… a ladybug. Hm. Don’t know how that got here. I was sure it was a picture of me. Oh well have a picture of a ladybug.
Aren’t I so cute? 😀
Anyways, that’s all for my birthday post!
HAHAHAHAH just kidding!!!! You thought I forgot about the announcement thing huh! Well nope too bad! Your girl ain’t that forgetful! (I like sand. Sand is squishy. 🙂 Announcement: I’ve been thinking about this and we will see how it goes. But for now, I’m considering self-publishing a little novelette I wrote a month or two ago. I’m still editing so it’ll be at least a month away, but I’m strongly considering it!!! EEEEEE *dances around* Well I’m truly done now! Thanks for hanging out with me on not a Tuesday! But it is my birthday, so this was fun! Now I better run before the schedule police catch me! I can’t go back to jail!!! 😉

Now go forth, mis amigos and amigas, and smile. Your day is just beginning. Make the best of it. Don’t procrastinate. Work hard. Make me proud. 🙂

Love you all,

Madeleine

P.S. pardon the formatting on the last part. It’s being stupid and I don’t know why.

  2. Maddy, you will find that as you grow older, time speeds up faster and faster. The baby picture at the top of your entry today is exactly the way I remember you yesterday. Or at least it seems like yesterday. I am so proud of the girl you are becoming. Happy birthday, sweet girl!
