High School Seniors
I've been teaching high school girls in Sunday school for 17 years or so. Every year, seniors feel the College Decision Drama after Christmas. Maybe you don't know what you want to do. Maybe you want a four-year degree. Maybe you are thinking about going to a two-year college. Small college? Huge college? Private school? State school? Room-mate?
We have two daughters, now 27 and 24. Yep, they experienced College Decision Drama too. Neither did too hot on the SAT, but they both got into college. And guess what? Both daughters ended up graduating from the same college, the very same December of the same year. One's a probation officer and one's a nanny--two very different majors. One daughter has a degree in Criminal Justice and the other with a Social Services degree, but each is gifted in her own way. Did they realize THE PLAN as high school seniors? Nope. No clue.
Are these kinds of questions circling your thoughts?
WHERE AM I GOING TO COLLEGE?
WHAT AM I GOING TO BE?
WHAT DO I WANT TO MAJOR IN?
It's never, no not ever happened that graduation comes and one of my Sunday school class seniors hasn't make her decision. The answer doesn't come quickly. Never in September of her senior year. Sometimes, not even until May right before graduation.
Does anybody have any graduation concerns?
I'd like to pray for you. Be at peace. God has a plan.
Love, love, love,
