Emma Turns 19 Friday

She’s posted this new picture:

She’s made her first blog post on MySpace:

May 16th 1989 when I was born and given life. After eighteen years here, I am all grown up and a matured into a young lady. Throughout these 18 years of life, I have learnt so much and have endured many good and bad times. Although i’m looking forward towards my birthday, I feel sad and disappointed with myself over certain matters. I feel my character is developing. Things are getting better as I learn to master my domain and learn what purpose my life holds.

As we grow older, we have more responsibilities and more expectations set upon us. On my 16th birthday, that seemed daunting because I was no longer a child, and not sure I was an adult. But now, I am excited to find out what life has to offer. I am looking forward to enjoying everything and every experience, travelling, and seeing the world. As I age, I’ll slowly learn. And it’s the journey that’s worth while. 19 years of living seems like eternity. I’m still growing and I’m loving every moment of it.

Well, 18, it was an interesting year.  One that made me grow up a lot and one that helped me figure some things out. 18 was something else! There were good times and bad. Scars and bruises and great surprises. So here’s my New Year’s resolution (because this is a new year for me): I’m going to try and make 19 a heck of a lot better than 18. No regrets this year!

Bring it on, 19, let’s have some fun……

Emma dreamed about Jesus last night: "He was on the other side of a fence talking to me. I couldn’t make out what he was saying. I was waiting on him to speak again, then he screamed in my right ear in a very high pitched voice, I woke up right away. Can’t get that scream out of my head."
