No-one (not even I) can really capture all that went into bringing me to this point in my life: the hopes, the fears; the weaknesses,the strengths; the failures, the successes; and the dreams of what lies ahead. But all that is in the past. Like stones thrown into a pond, or stepping stones in a stream that briefly rocked at my passing, the ripples have long since vanished to be remembered only imperfectly by a few. I won't mention the really big ripples that happened when I missed my footing. Thankfully they too are gone. But each step, some more shaky than others, shaped me and brought me a little closer to who I am now. Doubtless you may not like everything that you see. I am still a work in progress, being shaped patiently by the hand of God for a future that only He can see.
