What was a typical day like for your average nineteen-year-old thirty years ago? When you woke up, you were glad there was nothing electronic close at hand to open up the world to you. You, alone, away from it all . . . perfect. Once awake, you’d turn on your favorite radio station or you’d rewind your cassette to hear your favorite Billy Joel, Whitney Houston, or Lionel Richie song again.
As I continue my story, it’s time to share a piece directly from my book about my unplanned pregnancy which I dealt with when I was nineteen years old. The title is God and Your Pillow because those are the only two who really knew all of my heart, soul, and mind during this difficult time.
Being there’s been lots of graduations as of late, I thought I’d share what took place three years ago. Yep. The big 3-0 high school reunion for my class of 1985. (Stop right now. I’ll save you trouble and do the math for you. I’m 51.) It was sure a great time recognizing most of the faces anyway.
I bet we all know people whose lives have been dramatically affected by health issues, a financial crisis, or marital/family problems. I also bet many of you can say you yourself have gone through major trials such as these. The important thing to remember in the midst of each and every crisis is that God is in control.
