All About You in 52, Week 52. It’s the last question. To be honest I didn’t want to finish. I have so many stories to tell, things to express, and photos to scrap. I hope that I’ll keep up with the idea for myself.
The last question in my Grandmother’s book to me was “What advice do you have for me?” I think we’ve covered that question, but it made me think about what lessons, wishes, prayers, hopes and dreams do I want for my children and their children.
I created a very simple layout with my words being the focus. This is for my children and my grandchildren. I love you guys so much.
What is your wish/prayer for those to whom will read your “All About You” Book?
I pray for you so much in life, but not what you think.
I don’t pray for you wealth. I pray that you learn balance in your finances. I pray that you learn moderation in your living. I pray that you know how to use your money to create a beautiful beginning for your children and grandchildren. I pray you always realize that no matter how hard it might be for you, other’s needs are important and are your responsibility in this life.
I don’t pray for you a life without struggle. Struggle builds character. It melts away the doubts of what you think you can do. Struggle brings creativity. It stretches your mind and resources. I pray the struggle makes you rely on your family and teaches you to reach out to friends for encouragement, prayer and support.
I don’t pray for you the perfect career. I pray that you follow God’s will in your life. Throughout your life it may take you from being the carpenter to being a minister to those around you.
I don’t pray for you happiness. I pray that you recognize true moments of happiness. I pray that you are able to create a godly meaning of happiness for yourself and for your family. I pray that the tears you shed teach you that happiness is to be cherished and appreciated.
I don’t pray for you many friends. I pray that God brings friendships into your life that mentor you and that you can give to. I pray for you friends that are willing to struggle with you in finding a true and honest relationship with God. I pray for you friends who are willing to tell you the tough stuff and will kneel with you in prayer.
I don’t pray for you the perfect and easy relationship with God. I pray that your always fight for your relationship with God. I pray that in the fight you will find yourself in the eyes of God. I pray that you know God’s unconditional, never-ending grace, faith, love and hope. I pray that you know that God alone is beginning and end of your very breath.
I don’t pray for you to be beautiful or handsome. I pray that at the end of your life you find yourself wrinkled, gray haired, age spotted and tired. I pray that when other’s look at your worn body that they find Christ in you. I pray that your children and their children call you blessed. I pray when the day comes that God will reach His hand out to you and say “Well done, thou good an faithful servant.”

All that completed their books are winners. Everyone that did at least one page ventured into what most people dislike doing. I wanted express myself and to leave something in writing about me. I’m thankful I was able to meet that goal. Thank you for joining me for the 2009 Dare Ya! I will have one more post next Monday to wrap up everyone’s All About You in 52. Next Tuesday we start 52 Weeks of Homemade Families. Join me.
