When I was in middle school, the youth group did an ABC challenge. We sat in a circle and starting with "A" said a descriptive word about ourselves that started with the letter we landed on. I, of course, landed on "V" and could not for the life of me think of a word. Someone told me to say "voluptuous", so I did. Everyone burst out laughing. I had no idea why. I guess had I known the definition at the time I would have laughed too since I was the least voluptuous person in the whole world (and I still am). Since then I still love to do ABC challenges. Sometimes I'll do things I love about myself, or things I struggle with, or things that have changed about me. Even though I'm still not voluptuous, a lot of things really have changed since middle school. One major thing is that I no longer have my "Harry Potter" look (as my hubby so lovingly refers to it). Just to give you a mental picture, I had a bowl cut and big, round glasses. Yes, of all the things to say about myself, a word that conjured up an image of "desire" in the minds of others was as far as I could get from what people really thought about me. I'm so glad that I have grown out of that awkward phase, physically at least, and I am so glad that I am still growing. I praise God for the fact that I am constantly changing, constantly maturing, constantly learning.
