Before I was me,

when I was still with God,

I asked Him, “Who will I become?”

“Oh, my little one,” He replied,

“I have great plans for you!

I have chosen you to be

a very important person whom I will always love.

 Thus begins a charming odyssey of self-discovery, as, in conversation with God, the child imagines himself as:

. . . an ASTRONAUT going off to work each morning in a rocket, stopping halfway to Mars for milk and cookies . . .

. . . a BAKER baking yummy treats everyone wants . . .

. . . a FARMER growing food for hungry people of all nations around the world . . .

. . . a DOCTOR healing giraffes and rabbits, and, yes, people, too . . .

. . . a TEACHER helping boys and bears and gophers and girls become the best they can be (while giving hugs to the downcast!) . . .

. . . a PARENT making the lives of children happy and safe; and finally . . .

. . . a CHILD! . . . important simply for who he is

and WHOM GOD WILL ALWAYS LOVE!
