College graduations have already happened... high school graduations start next week & I'm so excited because we have some amazing, fantastic kiddos graduating this year. (Where does the time go? They were just little middle school kids & BLINK, they are done with high school?)... And the cutest of all, Monday, I got to see my twin nieces graduate from Pre-K. Oh, & believe me - I've got pictures. I just have to download & edit them... so be prepared - you'll have some more picture overload coming up in the next few days.
I remember graduating... from all the "BIG" grades. You go into a new school building & you know you are there for a specific time. Elementary school, I had a graduation when we made it through 5th grade - moving onto middle school. Middle school, we had a ceremony ushering us into high school. Then of course, the big ole high school graduation that is such a fun, memorable time of your life...some head onto college for yet ANOTHER graduation & then you can even continue for a graduation again...
You enter a new school building & you know a length of time you are going to be there... you have a goal that you are working for...
You have people cheering you on... you work hard to make it to that graduation... you put in time & thought & energy... you want nothing more then to get that diploma in your hand
I was thinking about how we KNOW when we are getting close to graduating. But what about this life we are in... afterall, we will all one day be leaving this world... GRADUATING to the next stage in our life... Heaven Bound!
And there will be celebration - & we'll be hearing the words "Well done good & faithful servant" & we'll feel accomplished that we made it through....are we putting in our time & thought & energy into this goal?
Its pretty exciting really - the final, wonderful Graduation of our life...
Dont be a dropout! :)
