Our second born is 22 years old today!
Krista was born with the gift of service. When she was younger we worked hard for her to understand that she was loved for WHO she is and not for WHAT she does.... We've taken great joy in watching God mature this gift for His benefit during the past 22 years.
When Krista heard we were moving, she put in her notice at work so that she could come out for Jamin's graduation, stay to help us get things ready for the move and travel with us. It appears an Air Force brat can never have enough of cross country pcs trips. ::snort::
Krista has an amazing sense of determination. School was TOUGH for her. She has dyslexia and this meant that learning to read, write and spell was a chore...but she is determined and has an "I can do this" temperment. I was amazed a couple of months ago to get a call asking me to save all the orginal philosphers and years of Cornerstone curricum because she'd like to "run through them again"....this was the curriculum that the publisher advised us not to try with her because it was for "gifted" students. May I encourage you that if God impresses on you that something is right for your child - HE is the EXPERT? ::snort::
One aspect of dyslexia is that Krista can SEE the big picture...in math, in life, in jobs....and therefore is a great one to solve all sorts of problems....and she's learning the need to communicate WHY the big plan will work to others...but often she simply KNOWS and SEES the big plan and isn't sure why......
Krista will enter Eugene Bible College this year as a Junior (she has lots of credits to transfer from non-traditional sources). She is pursuing a degree in Intercultural Ministries.... missions...and we are excited to see where God leads her.
Thanks for all your help these past days, Sweets! We love you! God blessed us real good when he placed you in our family.
