1st Timothy 4:12(NIV)
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.
The hymn, "My Jesus I Love Thee" has been playing through my head today. I do love this hymn and will always associate it with the funeral of a dear friend of ours, a friend so dear we named our son after him. The lyrics could have been the testimony of his life I was astounded to read today that it was written by a Canadian boy, only 16 years old, not astounded that he was Canadian but that he was only sixteen. He lived a short life dying at 27 years of age, but what a legacy he left behind, this profound, straight forward love letter to his Savior. When I was sixteen my greatest desire was acquiring my driver's license and/or a boyfriend. I did get the license.
